Water Damage iPhone doesn't turn on!
is the first post, and i’d like to know your opinions on what to do on my girlfriend iphone (got soaked in a Wadi in OMAN 2 weeks ago).
I know it’s an useless an unreliable iPhone but she want to save pictures. As i googled and youtubbed a lot around i have still some question to do.
As you see i unmounted the iPhone:
I see that there’s little bit rusty on one hole in the front PCB. But I think it doesn’t affect the PCB.
in the Rear PCB it seems the C5202_RF is “fused”.
I have the isopropyl alcohol to threat this PCB, but i still didn’t clean before going ahead.
1-From the images what do you suppose?
the only C5202_RF seems to got a consistent damage. I don’t see other problems.
2-to buy a ultrasonic cleaner? in order to clean better iPhones?
Other hints to understand and focus the problem?
thanks to all whom for the answers and thanks to all ifixit community the help people.
