Wondering if anyone knows how and where a Xiaomi Mi5 could be repaired in the UK. Water damage - screen not turning on, so I don't expect it to live again, but might be worth a try. Read More

Try putting it in a bag of rice, that normally helps with water damage.

do this, but first give it a bath in distilled water to wash out the minerals which may otherwise dry on the circuitry causing shorts.

oh take it apart as much as you can first, at least remove the battery

Yeah, it's been drying for a month. Think it's time to find a repair shop.

Yes they do! But: "Please note that our Store is closed for Chistmas time, from 19th December to 5th January. We don't offer any repair services in that time."

People mock but I've been told this is good advice if you dropped it in the sea for example

If you were going to 'bath' the phone, then you'd use isopropyl alcohol as it evaporates quickly and won't damage it, to do that though you'd first need to move anything that could be affected by liquids, the battery, screen, cameras, vibrator motor and speakers, basically just left with solid parts. Normally not worth the effort, repairing water damage normally isn't worth it as if it shorts it takes out all the most expensive components anyway.

Thx, afraid it is beyond that stage now
