Hi People, first time post from a new member.
I managed to drop my phone in some water. I turned the phone off, after about 5 mins the phone became hot I shook as much of the water out as i could and put it in rice and moisture absorbent gel and forgot about it for a few days. Before i switched it back i checked for any condensation etc
The phone is back on and working, well sort of!
the LCD has been affected you can see the colours are not right and you can see faint images from previous apps the have been open. also wifi and bluetooth are greyed out. the main problem is when the phone goes to sleep the network coverage drops away and i can't receive calls or texts till i wake it up, when the phone is on charge and goes to sleep and seems to stay connected to my network.
question is I'm wondering should I take the phone apart and clean all the components and fit a new LCD and screen?
can anyone recommend a solvent to clean it with, i have seen people using solvent and a soft brush to clean the motherboard.
could these problems be caused by shorting out connections?
I'm based in the west midlands as well
Any advise appreciated
