Alcohol behind phone screen

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Not entirely sure what to title this, so pardon the vague title. Basically, i had an issue with my iphone where audio from headphones would be mixed with frequent static "pops", making it very annoying to listen to. The headphones worked fine on other devices. I assumed that the issue was most likely due to gunk buildup in the audio jack, so i decided to use a syringe to spray some Isopropyl alcohol inside of the jack (not my brightest idea). I did this, hoping that the jack would be mostly waterproof, but turns out that a decent amount of the alcohol penetrated into the phone. The original issue was resolved, but now the bottom quarter of my screen around the headphone jack is discolored due to alcohol being behind the screen. My question is this: should i take apart the phone and let it dry, or will it dry on its own? I would rather not take apart my phone if i can avoid it.

it's just 2 tiny screws at the bottom, you can remove them and pry the phone open, if the alcohol is there in front of the screen, should be easy to drain it. but if its behind the panel or somewhere deeper, dont. cuz ive tried changing the panel before and they are flimsy as hell. light pressure as much as a mouse click can crack the panel. it was an expensive mistake. wasnt my phone anywayzxD
