Water or liquid damage is possibly the worst thing that can happen to an electronic device.
As the liquid seeps into all the ‘nooks and crannies’ – it begins to corrode the solder that connects all of the tiny components together, rotting the device from the inside.
This explains why water damaged devices maybe seem fine once they have ‘dried out’ – but get worse and worse over a period of weeks and months.
The nature of this damage means water damage cannot be fixed.
If a repair store opens up a device with liquid damage, the corroded solder can very easily work loose, causing tiny components to fall off the circuit board – destroying the device.
For that reason – in general – we do not fix water damaged devices.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”Our Advice” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:30|text_align:left|color:%23000000″ google_fonts=”font_family:Droid%20Sans%3Aregular%2C700|font_style:700%20bold%20regular%3A700%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]We recommend getting in touch with your manufacturer. For example, Apple offer a very generous phone replacement service – replacing your device with a brand new one for roughly half the price of buying a new device.
Furthermore – we strongly advise that you do not use any water damage repair services from any other companies, as there is a high chance that:
The phone may come back on again – but it’s never going to be 100%
This trick is worth a shot if you really need to get files off the device, and get access to it just one last time.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Spilled drink” el_id=”1440798972423-940dd614-b473″]Water evaporates (eventually) – all the while doing damage to the phone. Sugar, colourings, sweeteners and other stuff found in drinks do not. The damage will continue forever.
Unfortunately, if you ask us – it’s a ‘gonner’… Check out our advice section on this page.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Down the toilet” el_id=”1440799145013-bc0fe7a7-cd33″]It’s likely totally broken. The battery will be destroyed, the buttons will seize up – your LCD will be distorted, and your backlight will be dim. – And that’s if you’re lucky enough for it to ever come on again.
If you ask us – you might as well have flushed it![/vc_toggle][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column] [/vc_column][/vc_row]
