The other night at a friends new years party, my phone was wet a couple of times after it was placed on top of a sticky mess left by a rather drunk friend after she spilt an RTD on the counter. I thought nothing of it, because I was sober enough to make sure I closed all the flaps first.
Recently the phone was repaired after I broke the SIM slot, this was done by OmniTech, as they fixed rather than replaced the main board and were significantly cheaper than Sony, so keep that in mind.
When I woke the next morning, I tried to use the phones power button to wake the screen. No dice. Unplugged it from the charger and it worked fine, so I got ready for work. Just as I was leaving, I noticed there wasn't something right. There was water on the camera. It wouldn't move. Checked the back camera, water too. I looked under all the flaps for the ports and cards, all of the water indicators were bright red. Not good.
At lunch I called telecom faults and begged the person to somehow switch my SIM card as the normal department for it was closed due to public holiday. They done it for me with no complaints, so thanks to the kind person at the telecom faults team :)
I tried to switch the phone off to prevent damage, but whenever I tried, it would turn back on, regardless of how i turned it off (3rd party app or power button).
Fast forward to tonight, its now been in the hot water cupboard for 24hours, the water on the screen and cameras has all gone. But the power button is still stuffed and the screen occasionally glitches out. I can't turn it off still, so its on at the moment but will die overnight.
What I find super bizarre though, I can restart the phone normally by holding up volume and power and it works fine. No issues, but even in the CWM settings menu, the power button to select will not work. Im lost as to what could be causing this, even long holding just power doesn't do a thing.
Basically, I want peoples input as to whats causing the bizarre issue, and what should I do about getting it fixed because I can't go to sony due to aftermarket service, and I know the other company will blame me. Im stuffed.
