I got the phone after the unfortunate getting wet and not being taken apart immediately. When I got it, it was on, but the screen would not repaint itself and had a ton of garbage on it. I got it home, disassembled it with the help of this forum and noticed corrosion on the ribbon and connector on the main board. I disconnected them and sprayed them with contact cleaner and rubbed them. The screens are now more legible, but some sections have a difficult time repainting. The home screens icons are mostly bland too(I have a pearl and not sure what to expect with this one). It is cingular and my pearl is t mobile and I don't have another sim card to see if that changes anything. I was curious if there was a better way to clean the corrosion or anything else I could try.
I have been searching a ton on here, but have had a difficult time sifting through all of it, so please don't bash this newbie too bad.
