iPhone X restarting with apple logo after water got inside

Hi had took my iPhone X to beach last sunday and due to sudden wave, my iphone X under by tracks got wet, but i took the phone in less than 10 secs and saw that it was working.. But after 5 mins i saw that the phone was restarting in apple logo and did not go past the logo. (Apple logo comes for 5 secs and then a blank screen for 5 secs and so on). I did a hard reset to turn the phone off, but after 2 hours, I could see that the phone again turned on, but Face Id was not working and then in 5 min started restarting.

I completely hard reset the phone and took the phone to Apple care as it was under warranty. After a days inspection, they said that they cannot service it as it was water is inside which they identified from LCI color.

Now am struck and feeling really disappointed that this phone is not working fine and no one is out there to help in apple.

Can somebody support me with your views?

Can I have some hope of getting this serviced at-least from an unauthorized service center or any first aid I can do about myself?

Thanks For Your Time in going through my post :)

Hi Kumar,

I am experiencing similar problem. Can I have some of your advice on what to do? Were you able to get the data back after you fixed it???

Have you ever dropped your phone? I think your phone may need a logic board repair.

Maybe you need a mail in logic board troubleshooting and diagnosis.

He dropped it in water, or moisture got inside, so corrosion may be the culprit to the issue. Either way it may need board repairs if the damage is severe enough...

Hello Avinash Kumar, first of all I would like to apologize for the inconvenience you are experiencing. Unfortunately from what you have described to me about the device's current status, it certainly seems that water has started corroding key components on your iPhones logic board. My best reccomendation to you is to leave the device powered off, and if you plan on servicing it yourself, to open the device up, and immediately disconnect the battery and do a power drain by holding the Sleep/Wake button for atleast 3 seconds. Next you will want to locate and standing water droplets and use a micro fiber cloth to dry them. Disconnect the rear camera, display, and audio/power connections. Use 99.5% isopropyl alcohol and a Q-tip to carefully clean the contacts of any water and possible corrosion. You may want to remove both batteries and even the Logic board to inspect it for further water traces. If you happen to find any, use the micro fiber cloth to dry them, and use the isoproyl rubbing alcohol to dry/clean the spots. After a thorough inspection, connect all of the connections, and then the battery connections. Make sure that the charging port is clear of any moisture, and plug the device into power. Next you will want to do a hard reset. If the phone is working properly, the Apple logo will appear and the device should boot.

I hope that you are able to find a solution, and if you do not feel comfortable doing the service yourself, you can always find a 3rd party repair tech to do this work for you, just know that there is no guarentee. I hope this helps. Best of luck.

Thank you so much Alec for your response. I had given my phone to a third party technician who is renowned in my locality. As per his diagnosis for 3 days, he said he was able to boot the phone by Changing the battery and battery flex. But still the display has a green line which is not tat visible and the Face ID is not working. they are currently working to find the schema for the Face ID of my device to make it work.

As per their estimation, it would cost 20000 INR (Arnd 300 USD) to service the mobile if at all they make Face ID and display line fixed.

My first concern is- Will they be able to clear the green line from display and make Face ID working.

Second major concern- is it worth to spend 300 usd to get this serviced? Coz once an iPhone is serviced will it continue to work without any problem?

by

If you truly love the phone, and you deem the repair necessary as opposed to a new phone, then I personally believe the repair is worth it. The green line however, is damage to the display, and can't be fixed without a new display, where you lose the face ID ability.

by

Thank You Alec :). I seriously love it and I do not mind using it without a face ID or that single pixel of green line. But my worry is hope the line does not elaborate as the time passes and the service does not affect other functionings leading to still spend for the repair further.

by

Definitely. As long as the display isn't damaged around the LEDs, the green line shouldn't expand. Since you don't mind not having Face ID, it is good to consider a replacement screen.

But what the !&&* is apple doing in all this, for this we spend our 1 lac or more, why are they advertise about the ip 68 rating, as it works in water in 2 meters for 30 min??? There are a lots of videos like this on YouTube, then why are they spread false information, my advice is please go to court and and fight with these liers, the self made best phone in the world

That is correct Sachin. Most of the videos explaining the product durability is all faked up by the company itself giving a mindset for the consumers that the reviews are real. But truly those reviews are all paid by the company to bring up the false trust over the product.

by

So how can we convince apple not to make those false information??? so frustrating! I had water damage too... they want to replace the phone however I need to pay $600 for it.... sorry to say it but I think apple is paying their karma right now their stocks are falling down...

Yes Bro... Looks like your phone has attained a water damage.. All you need to confirm if so, is to have a flash light pass the sim tray and check if the red patch exists,,, (U can watch Utube vids for checking the water damage). If you dont find a red patch... all good that you can claim a new phone saying that your phone is having probs....

Looks like it is surely an hardware glitch,,,, BTW it is water splash and not water proof as apple claims it to be.... All you can do is to check water damage in the sim tray. If not better get it claimed for a new replacement. Good luck and cheers.....

I am facing same issue right now. Yesterday me and my family were visiting one island, I wanted to make some videos underwater, then i faced the same problem as you did. Additionally, when iPhone X was turning on and off it has became sooo hot, that i couldn’t even touch it. So, now it’s dead.

So angry with Apple for false claims and feature descriptions!
