Fixing water damaged Accelerometer and Gyroscope?

Hello. I dropped my Motorola RAZR HD on a swimming pool and it went down around 30-50cm for around 3 seconds before it was taken out. When I took it out everything seemed to work fine (it powered on fine, had signal, was receiving calls, sms, etc) except for the touchscreen, so I couldn't unlock it.

I took it to my carrier and they sent it to Motorola were they said that the damage was not reparable and the phone was not useful anymore.

But when I turned it on it was just working out perfectly, even the touchscreen was now working. Everything like nothing ever happened.

Except I realized the Accelerometer and Gyroscope were not responding at all. I downloaded AndroSensor and Accelerometer Monitor (apps) and there was no response at all. I can't play some games, I can't watch videos on landscape, etc. :(

It is certain that it is a hardware issue from the water. I want to know if there is a way to fix it. Do I have to replace it/them? How easy is it to fix/replace? How much would it cost?

Thank you very much in advance.

Both of those are IC components on the logic board. The only feasible fix would be to replace the logic board. After a drop in the pool, I'd expect far more damage.

Yeah, I feel lucky these components were the only ones that were damaged. How hard/costly is it to replace the logic board?


What's your model #?

Does anyone know if the gyroscope can dry out and function over time?
