Problem of mobile devices being damaged by liquid is common since we carry these devices everywhere with us. The beach, pool, and even the kitchen can wreak havoc on an unwary smartphone or tablet when exposed to liquid.

What happens when water covers your device motherboard? Why does liquid cause such problems for your device? Electronics and water do not go well together. Components begin to fail; things stop functioning properly and eventually your device will die if the necessary steps are not taken.

Liquid on circuit boards causes corrosion and oxidation resulting in degradation of metals. Nothing good ever really comes of this. A circuit board corrodes just like a car rusts and eventually dies. Electronic devices suffer from a variety of different problems when liquid is introduced in their environment. Resistance between the components drop, metals break down and solder joints deteriorate as corrosion spreads.

Corrosion causes pits and cracks in areas that electricity once freely flowed. The formation of metal fibers/clusters tends to occur, which bridges oppositely charged leads and causes arcing, or them to short out and fail.

The type of liquid plays a significant role in how quickly corrosion will spread. Fresh water is your friend when it comes to liquid damage. They contain the least amount of corrosion accelerators when compared to other types of liquids.

Salt water and chlorine are two of the worst types of liquid you can drop your device in. They contain elements that are heavy corrosion accelerators, which rapidly increase the spread of corrosion, and kill your circuits. When salt water/chlorine dry up, they will leave minerals and deposits on the circuit board. These minerals will eat up circuits in a matter of hours.

With all our experience, the devices that have had the greatest success rate of surviving liquid exposure are those whose last contact was with fresh water.

A few tips that you should take into consideration should you be the unfortunate victim of a Liquid Damage accident:

  • Do not try to turn it on
  • Do NOT charge your device. The device being on and soaked at the same time can and will short out circuits on the board
  • We suggest customers to contact us as soon as possible, arrange for a pickup or visit us personally
  • The sooner you get your device under repair, the better chance you have of repairing your device
