    So, a few weeks back i dropped my iPhone 5 in some water.. It is all working fine and the actual screen itself is all good!

Anything I could try doing?

  • Issue#17265: iPhone 6: phone works but touch screen is unresponsive after water damage.

    I dropped just the top of my phone in water and it immediately went black. I soaked it in rice for 24 hours and it still wouldn't turn on. I brought it to a repair place where they cleaned it etc. They were able to get it to turn on, but I can't use it because the screen does not respond to my touch. They said it's a malfunction of the digitizer and for some reason there was nothing they could do. Is there any way to fix this? The screen isn't ed or anything, the display is fine. If I replace the digitizer with one of your kits, should that fix the problem? What else can I do? Thank you. ⟐ Commented January 27, 2016 at 10:15 pm -0700

  • Issue#18950: iPhone 6: Ear Speaker not working after water damage/screen repair

    Hi, So my friend at work dropped his iphone 6 in the bath a few weeks back. It still worked, but the ear speaker had stopped working. In an attempt to fix the issue, he used a "Reviveaphone" kit, which I believe involves putting the phone in an isopropyl solution. This didn't fix his problem, but only made it worse. He then asked me to look at the phone for him as I've replaced many screens & other parts for people in the past. I took the phone apart, and gave it a week in a ziplock bag with some silica gel pouches. We discarded the battery and replaced with a new one. The phone powered back on, but the screen was badly damaged and very dark, and the speaker still didn't work. I've just replaced the screen and it's fine now, but the speaker is still not working. Is it worth me replacing the camera/speaker flex cable? Or is it more likely to be a fault on the main board?

  • Issue#26138: iPhone 6: Volume Down button not working following possible water damage

    I dropped my iPhone 6 in the salt water for a few seconds. I immediately turn it off and within 10 minutes had it in bag of rice for about a week. I figured that when I opened to inspect it for damage I would replace the battery, which I successfully did using the iFixit guide. Except for one water damage sensor turning red, there was no other obvious damage or corrosion. I did not completely disassemble the phone. Only went as far as battery removal and replacement. Also blew out the phone with compressed air. Put it back together and it works fine. Just recently however, the volume down button stopped working. Maybe this is due to some corrosion on a connector? The button itself feels normal. I suppose the only fix will be to replace the cable? I am now wondering if when I opened the phone up to inspect for damage and replace the battery, if I should have done a total dismantling of the phone and checked every nook and cranny for corrosion. Would that be the recommended procedure ev

    Hi All, I dropped my iPhone in the toilet(like many have LOL) Did everything i see on the net ie, placed it in rice,placed in airing cuboard after a week the only things that wasnt working was the home button and speakers. Opened it up then cleaned it with electrical cleaner, back in rice&airing cuboard for another 3 days. Every thing is working apart from home button. Sent it off explaining what had happened, they replaced the home button which didnt resolve the issue, they have said it has extensive water damage to the circuit board!!

  • Issue#44480: iPhone 6: Touch ID not working after screen replacement?

    I have made a screen replacement on my iPhone 6. Now the touch ID does not work any more. I have read that if the home button flex cable is damaged, this can occur. Is that really so? The button itself is working just fine. I know for a fact that the home button can not be replaced because then touch id will not work, plus you can never upgrade the phone again without getting a error 53. Can you confirm this? So my last question. Can I replace the home button flex cable or is that also coded to the chip or home button touch id? ⟐ Answered February 1, 2016 at 11:08 am -0700

  • Issue#81880: iPhone 4S: right side of touch screen not working.

    I first noticed that the right side of my touch screen wasn't working while writing an SMS when I couldn't type the letter "P". It works it landscape mode but not portrait. Obviously because it is a different location on the phone. It works to launch apps but if I need the very right side of the screen it doesn't work. ie. jumping to a certain letter in contacts or moving an app from the 1st page to the 2nd. There is no damage to the screen or water damage to the phone. Is there a part that needs to be replaced or a connection that needs to be checked?

    I recently had my iphone 6 screen replaced. Now the touch id does not work, I do not get the error 53 or anything, but when I go to program my fingerprint it does not do anything. Also the double tap on the home button to pull the screen down halfway does not work either. I have read mixed things online, so my question is: If you do a screen replacement will touch id work if everything is installed correctly? or will touch id only work with the original screen that came on the phone?

  • Issue#406828: iPhone 5s: Blue screen boot loop after water damage (no screw damage)

    Hello all, I have an iPhone 5s that had a minute amount of water damage at the battery connector area. Putting a new battery in would allow full function of the device, but I only did that to remove iCloud account and then turned off. I proceeded to water restoration. I removed the shield next to the battery connector and just partly removed the rear shield. I did not see signs of water on any other part but the very end of the logic board. Once I had cleaned off the corrosion with alcohol, ultrasonic cleaner and brush I put the phone partially together with a new battery. Now the phone began to do a 10-15 second boot loop. I tried another battery and these were showing the boot screen for probably 30 seconds then would slide transition into the blue screen for probably 1 second and then reboot, and repeat. I can not get anything out of any other batteries and am curious how removing the corrosion might have made the phone worse.. Does anyone have any ideas? ⟐ Answered April 4,

  • Issue#415544: iPhone 4: Wifi and Bluetooth not working after water damage

    I dropped my iPhone 4 in coffee. I powered it down and rinsed it real good with water. I of course removed the sim and battery. I dipped the phone in 99% alcohol. I thought this was best since I use cream and sugar in my coffee. Then did the rice thing to dry it out. It worked great except the screen is a little cloudy but that seems to be getting better so no worries there. My issue is that now the Wifi is grayed out and my Bluetooth doesn't work either. It looks like it tries to go to the 2nd screen on Bluetooth but the little wheel just keeps spinning. I did a restore and that didn't help. Do I need to replace the antenna? I just got the phone 6 months ago so I'm not due for an upgrade. I think it is still eligible for the Out Of Warranty replacement with Apple but I wanted to try a less expensive solution first. ⟐ Commented April 6, 2016 at 5:36 am -0700

  • Issue#418239: iPhone 6 Plus: Screen unresponsive after water damage

    My phone had some water damage and it was left with a blank screen but would vibrate if I charged it. I sent it out to a place to see if they could revive it by cleaning it but they said they were unsuccessful and gave the phone back to me. About a week later, the phone turned on showing texts, current time/date but I am unable to swipe and enter my passcode. Could this now just be something that could be fixed with a new screen and maybe the cleaning out the phone could have fixed it? I know I had read somethings about replacing the digitizer but not sure if that would apply here. Any insight would be appreciated! I'm still hopeful! Thanks in advance

    Hi! So, I have an iphone 5. I took it with me to kayaking in the lake and wanted to take pictures with it. Unfortunately the sealed bag I put the phone in was not perfectly sealed so water went it and the phone got water damaged. I dried it immediately when I took the phone out and then put in rice. After 24 hours, I bought some tools and opened the phone, brushed the logic board and all connections with 91% alcohol. The logic board does not look corroded at all. It looks pretty. After that, the phone worked perfectly! I also had an incoming phone call right after that and it worked just perfect. All apps seemed working fine as well. However, then I was too excited and was stupid enough to plug the phone into the charger... After 2 minutes est, the phone shut down and I immediately unplugged the phone. After all that, the phone won't turn on and whenever connected to charger, it starts flashing screen with apple logo. When I connect it to my Mac, the screen starts to flash and iTune

  • Issue#544280: iPhone 6: iPhone 6 Touch ID Issue after Screen Replacement

    So I replaced the screen with a part off eBay and followed ifixit to the letter. I have also transferred the metal contact plate from the frame. The home button feature of the iPhone works fine, however the Touch ID function doesn't work at all, and when trying to set up just says failed try again. I have tried a hard reset. Having looked around there are suggestions to replace the extension cable, however I do not see how this can work as the home button function still works. I was extremely careful when removing the home button and don't think I damaged it at all, any advice? Something I might have missed? Many thanks
