Water Damaged Pixel 2 XL

ProbablyProdigy

9 months ago

As mentioned, I accidentally left my Pixel 2 XL in my pants inside of the washer machine. It was fully submerged for about 10 minutes until I realized that and fished it out.

Remarkably, the phone seems perfectly fine besides two things.

  • The microphone appears fried. Nobody can hear me. I can also barely hear them.

  • I have no service. Just a '1x' where my 4G used to be.

Other than that, everything appears to be fine. I see that there are a lot of replacement parts for it online and would like to know where to start assuming I try to fix it myself. I have no warranty and don't want to spend $600+ for a pre-owned flagship. I literally got back from vacation today so needless to say, that's where my spending money went..
