    hey everyone
    i dropped my iphone in the water yesterday
    and everything still works except the backlight doesnt show up
    so at the moment if i need to use the iphone i will need to
    get some light and shine on it

    is there any ways to fix this?
    i have restored the iphone and it didnt help
    so maybe i should get some gear on ebay??
    any help will be appreciated

    also if your phone was completely submerged in water you could try the bag of rice trick to fully absorb all the moisture out of the phone. This would involve turning and leaving your phone off for several days while in the bag.

    This ^^ is your best hope short of actually taking it in and having it repaired/replaced. Make sure the bag is sealed tight and that there is plenty of rice.
