You know your iphone repair has been incomplete and unsuccessful when you can still experience a lag long after the job was done. The screen turns off on its own and the battery is draining faster than before. If you don’t have the latest IP68 rated device such problems will show. This means you are not completely protected from dust and water. No matter how hard you try, there is always going to be something that will hurt or damage your phone.
Water spills and damages are very common. Especially if you are a playful soul and like to be by the beach or just hang around with your friends a lot over beer or a cup of coffee, you are going to expose your phone to accidents more frequently than others.
Whenever such an incident happens you will see that your phone has stopped working. It is the frozen phone symptom and this means that the inner delicate parts of the phone are fried. But don’t panic because there are ways to fix this damage. Understand that there are a few things you can do prevent the water from seeping in and causing more damage than it already has.
First of all a simple dunk in any kind of liquid or a fall is not going to hurt your phone. It is in fact the time for which the device is submerged in the liquid that matters the most. You see a few splashes and a little rain and moisture don’t typically damage your phone. You can be out in the rain and completely soaked in water and still your phone will be functional.
Real problem starts when we let the water seep in through the small and almost invisible openings in the device. It has joints and many crevices that we can’t really see. Unless the phone is built really tight and doesn’t let any water in and in which case it will be somewhat water resistant and the manufacturer will advertise it as that as well. But since we are not dealing with a dust and waterproof phone, we will have to make sure that we don’t let water get inside it under any circumstances.
The moment you drop your phone in water or any kind of liquid, you take it out without delay and jerk the water off by shaking the device in all directions. Don’t let any droplets remain on the body of the phone. Once you’re sure there is no water there, just take a clean cotton cloth and wipe the phone off nicely and make sure to look into every nook and corner of the device for water.
Just to be certain you got all the water out, your iphone repair professional will suggest you to keep it under the sun for a while or dry it up with a hair dryer.
Dismantling The Phone To Check For Water Damage
You can also choose to dismantle or take apart the cell phone if you want to dry it out completely. When the damage is severe and you can’t turn it on, it is advised to open the device up and let it dry from the inside. However, it is very important that you know what you are doing. If you are relying on online video tutorials to carry on this operation, you’re better off selecting an iphone repair guy near you rather than doing it all by yourself. Not just this but you are also going to have to invest some money in the tools and equipment needed and spare some time in learning how to use them up and putting the pieces of the phone back together.
