iPhone Water Damage Repair Techniques
Ultrasonic Cleaning – One of the main ways of repairing lightly water damaged iphone is through an ultrasonic cleaning. What does an ultrasonic cleaning do? It removes the corrosion on all of the thousands of microscopic components that are in an iphone. The corrosion is caused by water being in the phone for a prolonged period of time, like when “drying” your phone off in rice. It is very common for water damaged iphones to just need an ultrasonic cleaning and then they can work again. For the phones that need more work after that point they would go into light board repair.
Light board repair – When iphones come in with more intense water damage they will often need light board repair. What is light board repair? Well if after we complete a ultrasonic cleaning your phone still does not start then it needs manual repair to get it to work. With how small components are on iphone motherboards it is not uncommon for capacitors or resistors to be burnt or even sometimes blown right off the board. When that happens we replace them with new components. Some times iphones have large areas of missing components or even whole chips that don’t work, when that is the case we need to do heavy board repair.
Heavy board repair – This is not a fun service to perform. We do not guarantee your phone will work perfectly after this service. This service is indented for data recovery. Heavy board repair includes removal of whole chips from the board, i will use the power management chip as an example. The power management is usually surrounded by many small components and then glued to the board with a think called under fill. This chip very difficult to remove and is very common when it comes to heavily water damaged iphones and ipads.
