Cleaned the circuit
board with distilled water and Isopropyle separately, each time for about 20 minutes. Isopropyle is a dangerous substance, liquid, highly irritant and inflammable, needed to be careful there!
Changed the housing too.
Had taken this to two repair shops, both had said it can not be repaired.
But its done!
Any idea how to unlock this?
How long did you spend fixing it? Anything is possible, it just doesn't make commercial sense to do certain things. If you budget £15 / hour and work out how long you spent, and then add the cost of the chemicals etc. Would you have paid that amount, if they had quoted you that? Also, a lot of places want to sell you another phone, so of course they are right, it can't be fixed.....
Also, a lot of places like to give you a fixed price to fix things, and they have no idea how long it might take. As well, as all this, whilst they are fixing your phone, they are losing money because they could be fixing somebody elses phone.... Of course, it might be that it can't be fixed after all, so they spend 3 hours trying everything, and you return and you're not going to give them money if it is not fixed.
When I wiped my hard drive by accident, and my backup partition, [blame Linux Mint Debian! I did everything right, removed my Linux partition, instructed Mint to use the empty space on my hard drive, and for some reason it used the whole hard drive, wiping my restore partition too, so I had to pay somebody because I didn't have a Windows disk] My backup dvds didn't work [typical!] and I'd misplaced my 16 gig usb hard drive, so this guy quoted me £15 to back up about 8 gigs of music, and reinstall Windows 7 Home Premium. It took him 2 days.....
