late effect of dropping an iphone in the water?
iīve searched around but couldnīt find an issue exactly like mine.
my iphone, while turned off, dropped in to the water for a couple of seconds a few weeks ago. i let it dry for a couple of days, and then turned it on.
it worked %100 except a really small blurry spot on the screen.
i was using the phone and it worked great but a week later while the charging didnīt work for some time. i connected it to the computer and then it charged fine.
another week passed, phone worked great, charging and everything.
then a couple of days ago when i came back to the phone after leaving it charging the screen was blank.
i canīt get the phone to power on since, i tried holding home and power button together, tried charging for a long time, tried switching chargers & outlets, nothing. screen stays blank. when i connect the phone to the computer its not recognized, its as if i didnt connect anything, no beep sound no nothing. itunes/ibrickr donīt recognize it either.
im currently on a trip and i guess i will take it to an apple store when i get to the states in a couple of weeks. i have no contract with at&t and actually use the phone in israel. i took a look at the water detector in the headphone jack and i think its still white.
does anyone have any suggestions?
thanks a bunch
