Dropped the cell phone in water
If you would have accidently dropped your cell phone in water or it fell in water you can try fixing it be these below tips
1. Remove the battery of the mobile and try drying it with a hair dryer
2. Put the cell phone in a raw rice container for a day, the rice will soak the moisture and the mobile will become dry from inside

Hi i have a huawei y220 it fell in water and now it charges but does not want to be on what must i do


ufortunately in the user manual for your phone there are safety lists once a phone like yours is in conditions such as water damage or any other on the list, the phone will not work properly, what i can suggest if you are on a warrenty and the warrenty has not expired yet, get ahold of the company and tell them you accidently dropped your phone in water and need a replacement.

Water Damage on my LG Rumour


You can always try taking it apart carefully and using Isopropyl Alcohol and a cotton swab to clean the button and connection. Let it completely dry and re-assemble.
It works for game controllers dropped in the toilet and TV Remotes dropped in the bathtub.
Besides, new Rumors™ are running upwards of $175, so you may as well try to fix it before you throw in the towel.

l7 water damage


I dropped my phone in the toilet when it fell out of my back pocket. The best thing to do is dry it as well as possible and then leave it out to dry. I let my phone dry for approximately 2-4 weeks and now it's working again. I found this out after I went out and bought another phone. LRL from Texas.
