When that happened to my phone I was able to open it immediately and set it in an area near my oven to help dry it out. It worked for my samsung phone but not my razor. The samsung was in a front loading washer whereas the razor fell in a (clean)toilet bowl. That may be the biggest difference.

You need to try Silica Gel Packets to dry out your phone. There was a good article on associatedcontent.com that explains how to dry a wet cell phone, iPods, or any electronics.

You need to place your cell phone in a zip lock bag with Silica Gel Packets. Silica Gel will remove all the moisture from the phone and its components, something air drying will not do!
Just Google "Silica Gel Packets" and you will find several companies selling these products. There is also a web site called: http://www.SilicaGelPackets.com that has them.

My phone was put through the washer and now people can hardly hear me when i speak but i can hear them clearly what can i do


Hi,

As the mobile is wet the circuit board inside the mobile will be fully wet. Due to this the connections between the circuits get connected (short circuited) and the mobile may behave in such a manner that it should not behave. NEVER put the wet mobile in charger even though it is dry and working properly. There may be water logs present in the mobile circuit which may be dangerous to the person who is using the mobile. It may lead to electric shock.

Take the mobile to the authorized dealer of your make and they will remove the water log from the mobile circuit board and it will be fine .I recommend you not to do this by yourself.
Thank You

I washed my LG phone in the washing machine, what can I do?


Hello,

The first step is to leave your phone alone! DO NOT try to turn your wet cell phone on. Turning on your wet phone can permanently damage the circuitry.

Next step is find a bag of rice, preferably white. White rice can absorbs the most water. Ensure that you have enough bag of rice to completely submerge your wet cell phone.

Now, place your wet cell phone into the bag of rice. Place the phone in the middle of the bag so that you can no longer see your wet cell phone.

Next, place your bag of rice in a dry and warm place. I left my bag of rice in the back of my car on a hot day.

Leave your bag of rice to sit for several hours. I left my bag of rice in the back of my car for 8 hours. After time has elapsed, you can finally pull out your cell phone and try to turn on your phone.

Good luck!

My cell phone was put into the washer a couple of moths ago?


Once they get wet and sit for a long time, it's not usually worth the time and money to repair them. It's a miracle that it still works at all with that amount of submersion. Good luck!

Take the battery out and let all of the components inside the cell phone dry out, then try powering it up, never power up a wet phone this will certainly cause damage to it. I had mine go through the washer (believe it or not!) and I let it dry out for several days and it worked fine afterwards. Good luck to you!

CELL PHONE FELL INTO THE WASHER


If you have insurance, it will probably cover water damage. The warranty will not. If you want to try to fix it yourself, read on.
Taking the battery out immediately is essential in order to prevent short-circuiting between leads of delicate components or the components themselves. However, the common misconception of then drying all of the circuit boards and components without specifically cleaning out the moisture first will probably ruin your phone. Let me explain. When the circuits get wet, many unintended current paths are created through the liquid. That's why it is important to remove the battery ASAP and leave it off until the repair is finished. However, the most common type of damage occurs after the electronics dry off. Sure, the water is gone, but any dissolved solids in the water remain. These deposits (sugar, coffee, soap, minerals from tap water, etc) remain and dry on the electronics as a hard film that can't be removed. These deposits will affect the digital and radio-frequency circuits of the phone, rendering it junk.
The solution is pretty simple. If the phone gets wet (dropped in a toilet, soda spilled on it, gone through the washer, etc), remove the battery and keep the phone wet (put it in a ziploc baggie) until you can clean it with DISTILLED water. Distilled water has no minerals in it, so it will dry without any residue left behind. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Disassemble the phone completely, and use a syringe to spray everything off. Pay special attention to the circuit boards, chip leads, ribbon cable connectors, and anything else that looks electrical. Don't be afraid to get the electronics wet. That's what we need to do. The idea is to ensure none of the original liquid is remaining. Once completed, shake off the excess water, and place all of the components in a warm dry place for 24-48 hours. Once dry, reassemble the phone and enjoy it.
I have used this procedure 6 times, and it was successful 5 times. One morning my wife called me and said my son's phone had just gone through the washer. I had her rinse it off under the faucet with tap water to get rid of the excess soap and put it in a baggie to keep it wet until I got home. That night i used this procedure to repair it and the phone worked fine. The 1 time it didn't work, some soda had already dried on the circuit board and I couldn't get all of it off.

Wet Phone


I washed my husbands cell phone and it came back to life.... however, my niece got gatorade on her phone and it never did.

I think the sugar gets in there and distorts everything.

After she recycled it we joked that maybe we should have tried to put it in the washer for a quick cycle to see if we could ungum the insides.....
I wish we would have... worth a shot if it's already dead. GOOD LUCK!

Oh, it is too late now, but when the cell phone first gets wet, put it in a BAG OF RICE.... the rice will absorb the moisture... let it in there for 24-48 hours... this will help tremendously!
(without the battery in it of course)
