    2 wks ago dropped my cell in water puddle outside. Immediately took out sim, battery dried it off and put the phone on a heater register, water ran out of it but the dot under the cover turned red voiding the warranty. Still does not work, put the sim in another old phone I had but like my maroon razr, can it ever be fixed?

It can be repaired, but how much would you want to invest?

a new board is about $60
speaker $30
mic $30
flex cables (2) $25 each

you can get a new refurbished v3 for under $100 on ebay, thats the suggestions

How do i fix my phone that has drop in water


One proven method of removing moisture is by putting your phone in a baggie of rice. The rice will absorb the moisture and not damage your phone.Leave it in there for about 48hrs. This method may not work if your phone has already been too severely damaged.

Water got inside and the screen wont work can it be repaired in as run out off warant


From my experience NO this will NOT be an economic repair.Most often in my repair shop, water damaged units are 99/100 a total loss even if only a small amount of water gains ingress it's a total loss, the damage done affects the entire board.

Water damage


I am sorry but whenever any modern day electronic equipment is exposed to water, especially if it was on. Then it will be a total loss. You see there is an instantaneous, chemical reaction, as soon as the water and the electronics mix. Current tracks, where it is NOT meant to be, and causes catastrophic damage, and no amount of "Drying out" will ever do anything, as the damage has already been done. You will have to get a new phone, it is as simple as that sorry.

My nokia phone fell in water and is not Switching on again


Accidents happen with phones and water but it doesn't always mean that all hope is lost. Below is a brief guide as to what you should do if your phone has been totally immersed in water.

1. Take the phone out of the water as quickly as possible.

2. Do not attempt to switch it on as this may cause further damage.

3. Remove the battery as quickly as you can, also remove the memory and sim cards.

4. If dropped in fresh water dry it off with a towel. If dropped in salt water rinse it thoroughly with fresh water. I know it sounds crazy getting it wet again but salt can cause a lot of internal damage such as corrosion. Again dry with a towel. You may also want to rinse it if you dropped it in a toilet.

5. Place the phone, battery and it's wet accessories in a plastic container (like a lunch box) and completely cover it with uncooked rice, use plenty of it. Again this sounds crazy but rice has desiccating properties that help draw the water out of the phone. Do not place a lid on the container.

6. Place the container somewhere very warm and dry for at least 3 days. An airing cupboard is often the ideal place.

7. Do not use a hair dryer directly on the phone to speed up the process. Too much heat can cause even more damage.

This isn't guaranteed to work but many people have successfully revived their phones and retrieved their data using this method.

Keep in mind that your phone is on borrowed time after you do this. Make it your first priority to retrieve any data that you would like to keep. It may only work for a few minutes, days, weeks, months or it may even last years.

You should monitor the phone carefully during charging. If it gets very hot the battery may be damaged and should be replaced.

After any exposure to water you no longer have a warranty as water damage is not covered. Any insurance policies on the phone may also be voided unless you are covered for accidental damage.

A more efficient alternative to rice is silica gel. You most likely won't have enough of the stuff to hand when the accident happens but it is good to use. Silica gel can be bought from electronic wholesalers like this example. Thank you to shuntfield for this information.

Good luck!

BATTERY UNABLE TO CHARGE, ALTHOUGH PHONE WORKS


Well, the white to pink dot is a sign of water in the phone. It is a moisture indicator and the first thing the repair fols look for so they can deny any claims.

They second thing is you can get an external battery charger for the razor. They run about 5 dollars and allow you to charge the battery seperate from the phone.

My cell phone fell into water bucket for five minutes


DO NOT USE HEAT. You will damage the tiny components of your phone. 
The best thing to do is that the moment you get water in your phone, disassemble it. Remove the battery as soon as possible. this is very important. Then, open the casing and seperate whatever you can, like the memory card, the back cover, the keypad etc. Shake out any water that you can from the openings. When you shake it you will most probably get some water out. 
Now, use a dry cloth to dry your phone. Dry as much as you can.

Next, take a bowl and fill it with dry, uncooked rice. Yes, rice. :) Put your unassembled cellphone in this bowl. All of its parts should be in the rice. Now leave this overnight atleast. If possible, leave it for 2 days.
Then, assemble your phone again. It should work fine now. Atleast mine did. :)
Hope it works for you too.

Plus, as you have already done the first part and dried it, just leave it open under a fan etc overnight and it will work fine.
