Question about Pantech C300 Cellular Phone
MY CELL PHONE GOT WET. I USED A BLOW DRYER AND PLACED IN A BOWL OF RICE FOR A FEW HOURS. THE PHONE WORKS BUT THE BACKLIGHT IS STAYS ON WHERE THE FLIP IS OPEN OR CLOSED. HOW CAN I MAKE THE BACKLIGHT GOT OFF (IF THAT IS POSSIBLE)?
How wet did it get? Was it submerged? The backlight would normally shut off after a short idle period or when you close the cover. If it is staying on all the time after water damage then there is still water in a component (like a capacitor) or corrosion that has opened or shorted a circuit path somewhere confusing the phone. There is a good chance that corrosion will become worse and do more damage. New problems could arise any time in the next few days or few years. If this were my phone I would disassemble it and clean it with rubbing alcohol, toothbrush, and air duster but there is some risk even for someone experienced. Also, microphones can be damaged by fluids including rubbing alcohol.
