You say that like it's a bad thing? :)

I wish I saw this LAST week! I had a minor spillage and, somehow, it hit both liquid sensors (one in the top, one in the bottom). Of course, my experience tells me these sensors are not all that reliable anyway, turning red in high (but normal weather-type, not artificial) humidity or not turning red when wet. Either way, the fine folks at the Apple store declared it abuse and told me it wasn't covered (unlike the salesman who sold me the extra care package- not Apple's fault, but BAD salesman!) So, replaced the phone for $200. (Not bad, I guess, since it wasn't covered and could've cost $600.) Anyway, the the issue was that, after having time to dry out with the power off, and after blowing out the ports to help it along a little, the back light stopped working. At first, it was intermittent, but the next day it was gone. Since it was completely out, not just dimmed, I think it would be the light, not the dimmer system. How would I have gone about replacing or repairing this instead of spending the extra for a replacement phone? (I'm well experienced in electronics, life-long computer tech- I just hesitated to do it with a brand new (but broken), expensive piece of equipment.) Cheers and keep up the good work!!
