water damage


you need to get the phone fully dried for it to work well again.

Remove the battery and clean it very well. After that, get a phone screw driver, unscrew all the phone screws, remove the phone cover in order to gain access to the phone panel. Gently remove/detach the screen from the phone board.

Get a methylated spirit and a soft tooth brush, dip the tooth brush into the spirit and use the brush to clean the phone board. Wash/brush every part of the board with the spirit.

After that, dry the board under an electric bulb or under sunlight. Allow it to dry very well. Let the board get hot. Then leave the board for 5mins or more to cool.

After that, couple back the phone, fix in the battery and try again. Then phone will definitely power on.

Take care.

seawater damage,dont switch on at all,allthough cleaned as best as could.??? samsung omnia i900

hello,all you need to do is to disassemble the phone without trying to power it on after the water damage.after it has been disassembled,you then dry up all the panels,batteries and screen and other affected part.if you have tried powering it up immediately after you brought it out of water,this could damage the panel and battery together.if after you have done what i advice and it still does not power on,i would advice you visit an authorized expert to help you give it a proper fix,by drying them up and also giving the phone a computer flash if warranted.

hope this is helpful,
kindly rate the solution if it's helpful.

take care.

water damaged and it works but for some reason it keeps turning off, is there a way to fix water damage?

Hello my friend,if the board and chips are oxidized now there is nothing you can do anymore.You should immediately open your mobile unplug everything and try to dry everything with a hairdressers gun and leave the battery and the Sim card out for some hours when you drop it into the water.

my nokia 7610 phone has been dropped in water

You should detached quickly its battery first. It is to prevent further damage to your unit. And dont try to power it on. Then bring your unit to a cellphone shop to have it dry and clean it for you, they will sometime automatically charge for water damage repair.

For minor damage only battery pack will get damaged. Luckily only cleaning and drying will get it running.
