If I had discovered your collective wisdom earlier my phone might be in a better state. Either way, I’m in dire need of your advice.
About a week ago, I and my FP3 faced the force of gravity while attempting to skate on some fragile ice. While I got away with some mild trauma, the state of my phone is a bit more problematic. In fact, it does show some stunning resilience despite that I did almost everything wrong (turned it on too soon, dried it (in rice) too little, turned it on again too soon).
In any case, after 4 days of drying, I was able to turn it on again. However, since then it shows the following symptoms:
- when the (original) charger is plugged in it charges extremely slowly and it does not exceed about 30% anymore, in fact, more often it remains below 10%
- when charging mostly the red light is on, only rarely the white light gets activated
- the phone doesn’t function when removing the battery and connecting it directly with the charger
I actually tried to disassemble the phone to also properly clean the charging connector, turns out that one of the screws is stripped. I actually never touched these, still another challenge on the road to identify what exactly the problem is.
I can’t really get my head around what’s the best way forward, any pointers?
Much appreciation upfront!
PS: I did read the various threads on water damage, yet couldn’t find any solution really
