Here are some solutions you can do to fix your iPad or to stop any permanent damage happening.

Dropped iPad in water step 1.


Rice is your friend, if you ever happen to drop a smart device into water then rice is a great tool to remove any moisture that may have accumulated. Things you need are dry rice, and a container or sealed bag your iPad will fit in. First thing you want to do is to turn off the iPad if you already haven’t and also remove the SIM card if applicable. If there is still water on or around the iPad simply use a paper towel or absorbent material to pat away any excess fluid. Then place the iPad in the container or bag with rice, more the better. Now comes the waiting game, there is no set time on how long to leave the iPad in the rice but over 24 hours is recommended.

If you don’t have the above materials then that’s ok. This is a similar step in that you want to put your iPad in a dry area if possible. Before doing so turn the iPad off and remove the SIM card if there is one. If you have a dry pantry or hot water cubbord these places are best. It’s also preferred to wrap the iPad in a dry paper towel or similar material to help the process. Also leaving the iPad sit over night is a best practise.

Another good method worth trying if none of the above steps have worked is to use cotton wool buds. Any cotton wool buds will do the trick, once you’ve found a few pinch the ends to narrow the cotton wool end. This is done as it allows you to penetrate the charging port and the headphone jack. Next you want to throughly clean all ports on the iPhone, doing this cleaning process should eliminate any residual water, moisture or fizzy drink that had gotten into the iPhone.

Dropped iPad in water step 4.

Similar to steps 1 and 2 for eliminating the water from the iPhone using rice or a paper towel, another good alternative is to use silica packets. These are the things you get when you buy a new pair of shoes. If you can’t find any silica packs around, empty shoes boxes are a great place to look. Try and find as may as you can and repeat the same process from step 1 but instead of the rice use the silica packs.

Dropped iPad in water step 5.

use hair dryer to remove water from iPad
This is a last resort solution that has been recommend by some readers but with a warning attached to it. If none of the above steps have worked there is a method of applying heat to the iPad by using a hair dryer. Caution! If you still have some risidule water or fluids in the iPad still this this may do more damage than good. Try at your own risk. If you are to do this step apply heat on low setting for 5-10 minutes. Have the hairdryer at a fair distance so it doesn’t over heat the iPad, you want to warm the device not cook it. You can repeat this method several times if necessary.

iPhone Screen Has Gone Black and Blank But Still Responding – Fix

iPhone Screen Has Gone Black and Blank But Still Responding – Fix

There have been numerous reports of iPhone and iPad screens and displays blacking out or just going blank. While the screen goes black the iPhone is still responding with incoming calls, notification sounds and vibrations. This issue tends to arise when the iPhone is dropped or when is used to tough environments. Thankfully there are some simple fixes you can try that will hopefully resolve these problems.


iPhone Screen Has Gone Black Step 1

If you are ever to run into any glitches or temporary bugs on your iPhone it is always recommended to restart it as you would a computer. iPhones don’t have a dedicated restart button so there is a certain command which is holding the power/lock button + home button together for 10 seconds. This will restart the iPhone back up and sometimes can take up to 1 minute. You will not loose any data, contacts, music when doing the restart. This step is successful across all forms for trouble shooting on the iPhone whether it be for sound, camera, display, reception and so on.


iPhone Screen Has Gone Black Step 2

Another successful step that has helped iPhone users with this problem is reconnecting the display connecter in the iPhone itself. Externally you want to squeeze down on the back of the iPhone in the top 1/4 area where the camera and display connectors are found. Pressing down sometimes reconnects the connector as it may have been dislodged while being dropped. You can repeat this step pressing firmly for 30 seconds at a time.
