We would like to tell you about a customer who came to us a few
She was very distraught. Her iPhone 6 had gone through the washer and the dryer! We know
what you’re thinking…..how could you ever fix that….it has to be impossible! We looked over
her phone and gave her a few repair options. We had to take out the motherboard in her phone
and inspect it for any burn marks; because if she plugged her phone in while it was still wet
and tried to turn on, it would have burned part of the motherboard. Lucky for her….no burn
marks! A sigh of relief from all parties. Next step we put the motherboard in a sonic cleaner that
will get rid of any corrosion on the motherboard. Now this process takes a few hours, so our
customer left her phone in our capable hands. We were on a mission to save this phone and
bring it back to life. Much like Dr. Frankenstein and his monster; we would bring the dead to
life. Muahahahahaha…..sorry about that readers. Back to the story now…..After replacing the
screen and a trip through a drying process, the phone was revived. Our customer was
extremely happy and very grateful. Now we would like to mention that we can not always fix
water damaged phones. We have come across a few that came into contact with salty ocean
water and there was no way to repair them. We have even fixed a few that came into contact
with toilet water.
The moral of the story here folks is to not put your phone in water, but we all know that
sometimes that isn’t always possible. So if it ever happens to you follow these simple steps: 1)
Rescue your phone quickly from the wet substance (emphasis on quickly here people) 2) Don’t bother with rice if it did work it would takes a few weeks to take affect) 3) Now this is the
most important step to follow, whatever you do, DO NOT CHARGE IT!!! Turn it off if you can
and just leave it be. 4) Bring it here to us at Gadget Fix on South Street and we will clean up
the water damage and breathe new live into your phone.
