To eliminate moisture from the inside, the only thing you need to do is get a bag rice (just a small bag enough to bury in and cover the whole iPhone). And leave it tightly sealed for a day or two. A ziploc bag is a great choice, but make sure, you fill it with rice. The bag should contain as much less air as possible, and the seal should be airtight.

Use a hair dryer and blow into the phone. DO NOT put the heat on else the phone may get toasted. It will remove all traces of water from the phone.

When I go to text portion using kindle books, the page dims even if the brightness setting is at max


The option to keep the display bright is not found under settings in the Android app, but under the font settings. If you tap the centre of your screen whilst reading your book the icons will appear at the top of your screen. Click the font size icon, and a drop down list of settings will appear. The one at the bottom deals with brightness.

My iphone got wet now light is so dim i restored it and everything but it is still dim i can do call and receive calls everything else works great execpt for the light what can i do.


First, check your brightness setting. Usually I'd give some other troubleshooting tips, however the fact that the phone got wet tells me that the screen itself has water damage. A good trick (something I've done many times) is crack the screen then take it to the Apple store and ask for a replacement. They have a "One-time exception" and will replace the phone for free. Hope this suggestion helps :)

It is something that can be saved. You will need to replace the screen and digitilzer or reset all settings. You can google scrren and digitilizer and you can purchase it online and install it yourself. Or you can take it to a phone repair store and get it repaired for about 40-100 dollars. hope this helps.

Iphone 3.2...my iphone light is too dim automatically i dnt knw wht happen...screen is ok but light is too dim to see...


There are only ? handful of possible causes for the problem which you are facing. The most common being the light settings for your device. The brightness of the light might have been tampered with. Simply go to settings and adjust the contrast and brightness of the phone.to your taste. If this happens not to be the case then the bulbs for your screen are bad and therefore have to be replaced. This will have to be done by an expert. Hope this solution has been helpful?

My ipod touch works perfectly however i i turned it of once and the screen went blank almost completely. i could hardly even see it under a realy bright light. how can i fix this? or is it unfixable, do i...


Greetings,

After many years of developing for the iphone, I've come across this problem many times.
  1. If your ipod is stuck on this really dim lighting and connect be used, just leave it alone till it runs out of battery on its own.
  2. When the ipod is completely dead, just recharge fully.
  3. After the ipod is charged, proceed to turning it on.
  4. If the light is still dim, go to settings and set the brightness.
OR
  1. If your ipod is usable but you cannot change the brightness, reset the entire ipod manually (hold the on-off button for a few seconds).
  2. When ipod is shutdown, hold the on-off switch again and wait till it reboots.
  3. Then go to settings and change the brightness to your liking.

If you require further assistance, please feel free to reply to this post. Also please don't forget to rate me if I have helped.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Iphone screen is dim


You will need to wait for it to dry out. Just one little drop of water getting into the wrong place can cause this. Put the phone in a sunny spot for a couple of hours and see if that helps. If not, hopefully your phone is still under warranty and you can take it to an Apple store for repair or replacement.
