About a week and a half ago, I left my 2g iphone charging next to a glass of cold water with condensation, and woke up the next morning to find it constantly telling me, "This device is not compatible with the iPhone..." I looked it up, and found other people with the same problem who let it dry or oven baked it at 140F who said it worked perfectly again after that. I figured it was just pins inside the phone crossing by water, giving me the "phantom device."
I decided to open my phone and let it air out for a day. It worked for the most part, it only gives me that error about once or twice a day as opposed to 50 before I let it air out.
That problem I guess is fine, but the real problem I have now is the camera. Whenever I take a picture or record a video, I get pictures like this:
seemingly being able to use less colors.
So I opened it back up again and replaced the camera with another one I had, and I got the same exact problem.
So I'm wondering, is it definitely hardware, or could it be software that got corrupted due to the water? Is there a solution?
Also, does anyone have any experience cooking their iphones? At what temperature, and how long should I do it for? I heard leaving it a few days in a hot car works as well to dry it out completely, but I don't want someone breaking in and stealing it.
