View Full Version : OMG my Iphone

18-03-2009, 10:49 AM
I have just spilt a whole cup of tea on the kitchen worktop and it went all over my Iphone. everything is working apart from the sound. I can here music and phone calls if I have my headphone in or put it on load speaker, but not normally. Will this correct it's self or have I blowen up the main sound speaker. If I press the button on the side which adjusts the sound it keeps saying that I have headphone in which I don't.

I would leave it in the sun to dry out and not touch it , sounds like there might be some fluid in the socket causing a short

don't touch it

Would using a blow dryer on it help? I once washed a special watch (not water proof) and used a blow dryer to great success.

I did once give my mobile a quick bath (don't ask :sigh: ) and again used a blow dryer on it.

Need to be sure not to melt the plastic of course, a low setting or cool setting works best. :yes:

Not sure about an iPhone though as I've not ever had one.

I have put it in a sunny place, lets hope it dries out.
I dried the phone ASAP so there shouldn't be to much damage, trust it to be the sound that doesn't work.

I hope its okay. I would think that water damage to speakers should go away after they have dried out. At least it's not the screen!

I just did a google search and there are tons of companies offering repairs so all hope is not lost! Fingers crossed for you.

Another good tip is put it in rice. The rice will dry the phone out as it absorbs the water.

Glad it's OK :thumbsup: :)

Dawn destroyed her previous mobile (regular ol' sony-ericsson, nothing special). She left it in a pocket by accident, and it ended up in the washing machine :rolleyes: There was an impressive scorch mark inside the case where the battery had shorted and fried the electronics... no amount of drying could have helped it.

She has been more careful with her new phone... so far... :unsure:

ooohhh I think I remember when she did that...
