Re: Dropped Phone in Motor Oil

LMAO!!!! So sorry as its not the first time I've heard this .. Your gonna need to get some sort of degreaser for electronics such as chemtronics products, such a tun-o wash type product that dosent have any lubercant in it. Now once you get this spray, spray alittle on the back of the phone to make sure it dosent desolve the bloody thing. If it dosent, start spraying all the stream into the mouth and ear piece, while at the same time shaking out all the oil as it should if you get the right stuff. Them its gonna get really cold with this spray so dont hurt your self. Now make sure the batterys unpluged and let the unit dry up for a day or two and then insert the battery again and see if it worked or not. You got a 50:50 shot . If it works great Im a hero, if it does Not, OH well i tryed.. Good Luck

Dropped my samsung eternity in water

You phone needs to be taken apart and dried out. You probably shorted the battery, it will need to be replaced. If it got really wet, boards start to corrode and phone may not be fixable. Every connection on phone needs to be taken apart and dried, hopefully your phone will work again. Sometimes I get them to work again, and sometimes I don't. Good Luck

any water or liquid exposure on the phone will damage it's mother board. It needs to be fixed and needs a replacement on other parts on it, there is no assurance that it can still be fixed.

Problems with phone since dropped in water.

No Problem

You can Solve this problem by doing a FULL FLASH using software called NSPRO

If you do not have this software take this to a phone shop to get flashed

because by the sounds of it when you dropped the handset in water it has just basically wiped its memory, that is why it is telling you the above

hope this works if not contact me on
and i will find a respectable mobile phone shop in your area and the best priced

Changing the LCD screen on a Samsung A-737

I had to take my sons phone apart when it got wet. I believe the screen was held in with some type of double sided tape. But you have to take the phone completely apart to get to it. I took it apart about 6-8 months ago and it is still working.

Dropped in Toilet

See if it will turn on when you remove battery and plug it into your charger. If it will you could recover the numbers with the Motorola software or the Carrier could.
