    Exclamation [WATER] Sync Port Problem

    Hi, 1 month ago my iphone went into the water, now i can't charge with usb but only with firewire, so i can only charge but not sync. (usb is 5v - firewire is 12v)
    Is not a USB dock adapter cable problem, i have 3 usb dock and one firewire dock and i tried to connect to many friend's computer. I think the problem is the sync connector. I can't restore it, i can't sync with usb, but the iPhone works fine. What can i do? Change the logic board or the sync connector?
    sorry for my english

    The iPhone and iTouch are not compatible with old firewire iPod devices and battery chargers.

    Many people here had broken iPhone because they were using Dock connector to Firewire cable or old Generation iPod speakers with the dock connector (charging on both 12V on the Firewire pins and 5V on the USB pins).

    Even without water your iPhone will blow if you use these products.

    iPhone and iTouch support USB powered dock cable only.

    Check the unofficial compatible 3rd party iPod devices sticky to see if your product is listed.

    My iphone died, it not longer started with usb, then, after 2 weeks, i tried with firewire and it worked: now is my only solution to charge it. I use the iphone dock with firewire cable.
    My usb problem wasn't a consequence of the firewire but of the water.

    This is incorrect.
    The official Apple iPhone troubleshooting page said "Firewire is only for charging, not for syncing."

    This means that assuming you're using an official firewire dock connector cable, charging using a firewire port or firewire power adapter is supported at anywhere from 5V to 30V (official firewire spec. Yes, up to 30. Three with a zero. 6 times 5.)

    What may be happening is that some unofficial docking connectors short some lines together or output the wrong voltage to the wrong input pins.

    Regardless, if you have an Apple Power adapter for a first gen or newer iPod, and a firewire docking cable from Apple, it's supported.

    This is from the iPhone manual.
    Can you see where the Firewire or any other device are mentioned ?

    This link leads to all the manuals available for the iPhone.

    http://www.apple.com/support/manuals/iphone/

    Please show me where they talk about Firewire.

    Also the specs page > http://support.apple.com/specs/iphone/iPhone.html

    Also the support page > http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1476?viewlocale=en_US

    No wonder why you can't find anything related to Firewire ?

    Manuals are made to teach customers how to use their products.

    Troubleshooting section is made to solve a potential problem that might happened after starting to use them.

    So people are using their 3rd party device charging on both Firewire and USB without knowing it could potentially damage their phone (expect a popup/warning asking about the plane mode, which is obviously related to Firewire, isn't it ).

    Can you give me a link to a page talking about Firewire and iPhone because the only thing i found is some people/members in the Apple discussions forum claiming that it is for charging only. I haven't found anything official from Apple.

    According to this discussion, it used to say that on the apple site:
    http://discussions.apple.com/thread....sageID=5494347

    That link has now been replaced by some stupid web wizard helper thing.

    In addition, not only did they mention it before, they're using it in store:
    http://discussions.apple.com/thread....724&tstart=120
