Default Alcohol drop

Please Login to Remove!

I tried to clean my trackball with Isopropanal alcohol and my hand shook enough to dispense more than needed. It went into the screen area and I have [I]such pretty clouds[I] there, now LOL!
I took put the battery and wiped everything, replaced the battery and the OS came up.
I immediately took out the battery again, and it's drying.
Any hope for a second life?
It's only 20 months old, and I DON"T want to be playing for The Arena another 3 years (Rogers plan)

How does it look today? My husband had that happen to his. First time, it eventually disappeared but the second time, the LCD never recovered. The phone still functioned fine though.

You probably was just very lucky that you didn't damage any so far.
