Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

1 Answer

I unknowingly spilled water on a charging iphone, it sat all night and the next day when I went to plug it back in it wouldnt recognize that it was plugged in to charge, there seemed to be something inside the slot that the cord goes into I was thinking it was maybe a corrosion that had formed like a car battery. I cleaned it as best as i could but now it will not always recognize when it is plugged in it wont start charging until it is very low on battery power so it seems to me, any ideas

Hello so I spilled water on my laptop the other night however I took the power out and I turned it upside down and drained the water out In the morning when I went to start it it turned on for a sec then...


Hi,

It would have been better to leave the computer sit for few days without Turning it ON.
It is possible that the laptop wasn't completely dry and that would have resulted in a short circuit of some part/component inside the laptop.
Try taking out the battery (unplug the power cord too) and try turning it ON again in few days.
If nothing works you need to get the system serviced/checked by a Tech.

Let me know what happens
Thanks.

Why wont my iPhone charge when its on?


Water or anything liquid is an enemy to anything electronics. The phone is water damaged. And needs thorough servicing with ultrasonic and rework station or hot air gun. Cos the water residue has caused a flux or short on the resistors on the motherboard and they need to be cleaned or replaced. So Sorry samantha there's nothing you can do here except to take the device to any repair centre near you.

My girlfreind dropped her iphone 3g into a cup of hot chocolate, her parents went out and bought her a new iphone 4... i put the 3g on the radiator for a day and it started working again. The only problem...


Any exposure to liquid can damage internal components of the device. I wouldn't recommend sending the phone to Apple because it will be an out of Warranty repair of 199, however you could try a third party company that does repairs of iPhones like iFixit.

Truck sat for 6 weeks battery went dead. Charged


If checking battery cables and wiring to the starter and ground points doesn't help. Have the battery checked for a bad cell. Preferably before you charge it.

*Unable to charge


Try a different battery in it when you are trying to charge if it works your fixed if not it may be as you suspect.
The other way is to try a different chargers well if the prob is still there then it is in the phone and needs a tech to look at it

Unable to charge


My wife spilled some water on her Pebl and she shut it off for the night. She dried it pretty good but it had a protective case over it and she thought that it didnt get water into the inside of the phone but it did. The next morning the phone wouldnt work. We left the battery out all day and yes, the "wet" dot had turned red. We thought all was lost, but that evening after it had dried we replaced the sim card and battery and turned it on and it worked fine....except it needed to be charged and when she went to plug it in we got the "unable to charge" msg and the phone shut off. Well, since I had bought the phone second off of Ebay I knew there was nothing that Cingular would do, I took the screws out of the back and took the phone apart. There is another one of those dots back there as well....and it wasnt tripped. I did notice a little bit of white stuff around were the battery prongs touch the main circuit board, I gently used the small screw driver I used to take out the screws and cleaned that stuff off. I also gently scraped those prongs and the metal they touch on the circuit board. Thought it was a long shot but I put the phone back together and plugged it in and bygod, its charging. Guess we will see how long this fixes the problem. Hope this helps you out some.
