Hello,
Okay so I have an iphone 2g, and I recently dropped it in the sink, I immediately dry it off and then tried turning it on.(I know horrible idea) I then put it in rice for about 3 days. i tried it today. Itunes recognized the Iphone and even synced the phone. BUT the screen is still black. I have no idea what to do and i really want my beloved Iphone back, i dont have the money for a new one.
Any ideas on what to try? Is it possible to purchase a new screen or something of that sort.
Once again Itunes recognized it and even synced it.
Thanks for your help,
Connor

the 2G is dated, It's going to cost you more than it's worth to fix. The display assembly for the 2G runs about $100, You don't know what else is damaged.

yes, i understand that it can possible cost more money to repair it.

Is there any possibility of the screen coming back to life.

All you can do at this point is wait, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
