iPhone SE Water Damage Help! (Vertical Lines)

I dropped my phone in the toilet for about 1 - 2 seconds before getting it out and it was completely submerged. I dried it off and immediately switched it off but I didn’t get to rice until later that night. I left it in the rice for about 24 hours and I have been using it for the last day and a half. Everything is working perfectly appart from the screen. I backed it up, but the only problem is vertical lines running thought the phone when the screen is black. What is it a sign of? And is it worth getting it looked at if it has been working this long. Has this happened any of ye before and how long did the phone survive after? Thanks.Photos of screenPhoto of screen

With water damage, you have to decontaminate the logic board before doing anything else, otherwise there will be latent issues down the road.

As Daniel says, you should stop using rice, the rice myth kills too many phones...

The water is inside the phone, on the logic board and under the shields, even under the IC's. The rice is nowhere near where the water is. So while it “may’’ soak up some water vapour, the real problem is the mineral deposits that can cause short circuits or the corrosion that is taking place as the water evaporates. Leaving the power on the device accelerates the process. The longer you let a phone sit in rice, the more time you are giving corrosion to damage your logic board. The saltier or harder the water is, the more damage will occur. The water needs to be displaced, not evaporated. Here’s a great video that summarizes these issues.

On some phones, rice treatments appear to work. But those are phones that had minimal water ingress and not anywhere near a danger area on the logic board. They would have recovered regardless of the intervention.

If you want to try and clean it yourself, then do the following:

  • Open your phone and remove the logic board (follow this guide)
  • Inspect the logic board, especially around the connectors and look for corrosion.
  • Inspect both sides of the board. Unfortunately, most of the board is covered in shields. That's usually where the damage is occurring.
  • Put your board in a container with >90% isopropyl alcohol and let it sit for a while.
  • Use a soft brush, like a toothbrush and lightly brush away any corrosion you see.
  • Rinse in alcohol and repeat.
  • Let it air dry for a day.
  • Re-assemble and hope for the best.

You should also replace the battery if it has swollen. Resist the temptation to pop it to let the gas out. A compromised Li-ion battery is a fire hazard. If the device appears to power up but behaves erratically, then use a tool like 3uTools to flash the firmware as it may be corrupted.

A professional repair shop that does water damage repair may be able to recover your phone or the data because they have access to pro-level ultrasonic baths and specialized cleaners as well as the skills to troubleshoot your board. Many shops have a no fix/no fee policy so you don't have to spend money to find out if the phone is fixable or not.
