    I accidentally dropped my iPhone is water, and now, it works perfectly, except that everything has a green tint. The black background is noticeably green, the camera takes green pictures, and some of the text is unreadable. Everything else is fine. How do I fix it?

    Does the camera actually take green pictures, or does your screen display green?


    To find that out, transfer/e-mail the picture to yourself, and see if your computer displays a green picture, if it does, then your camera is water-damaged, if it doesn't, your screen got water-damaged.


    Either way, your warranty is up because you dropped it in water.

    hmm, I wouldn't say its just the glass that'd make it green. It could be though. Buy a glass piece off eBay or somewhere, open up your 'phone, and then replace the screens.
