The only thing you really could do should probably already been done,when you get a cell phone wet you need to remve the battery asap,if you kill the power supply it cant damage any more parts.then you need to dry it with like a hair dryer on low setting do not push any buttons or try to turn on phone this will allow water to get places it shouldnt be after drying with a hiar dryer you want to put it in a container with a lid with silica packets or bury it in dry rice for 24 hrs this will absorb any water left in it then put your battery in pray and try to power it up.If this didnt work i have also heard of people soaking the mother boards in alchol for 24hrs and letting dry for 24hrs this i have only seen done on more simple cell phones as i know that there is three layers of boards in an iphone and i have not had the pleasure of opening one of those up yet.

My iphone 4 drop in my dishwater with bleach will it dry out and work again


Dropping a switched on cell phone into bleached water will certainly damage the electronics in the cell phone.
You can remove the battery and dry it out, but most likely it is damaged beyond repair.

Hi, I droped my iPhone 4 in water. The iPhone stopped responding. The touch function is no longer working. I would like to know if its possible to repair it and what is the estimate...


It all depends on the extent of the damage. The digitizer is just one thing to stop working. The rest of the phone might go soon, and water damage isn't covered under warranty.
I can get you a website link of parts, but you might just be better off buying another phone.

Iphone screen backlight not working


If Your Iphone backlight has stopped working then you LCD screen needs to be replaced. You can do it yourself. Just google it but I receommend having it done professionally. It costs 99 dollars which is better than the 300-400 dollars for a new iphone.

My iphone wont turn on


If you have not fried it already there is a good chance that if you remove the battery immediately and let it dry out completely that it will begin to function normally.

Do not hook it to a charger until you know the internal components are dry. this will almost assuredly fry the device as the voltage is much higher from the wall.

If there is standing water inside the device, you may want to try and find a way to drain it so that the internal components don't corrode before they can dry out.

Non responsive touch screen on iphone


If a hard reset (press menu and center button together for 5 sec) and software restore doesn't cure it , you have a broken digitizer of your iPhone screen assembly. There is an iphone repair guide website that shows you how to do the replacement yourself and a third party iphone repair company that can do it for you.
