Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Water damage, phone works fine, but no service

Yesterday, my phone was accidentally dropped in a pool. I took out the battery, dried it off, and let it sit for a few hours. Last night, I re-assembled it, and it works! Unfortunately, if I close the phone, it will turn off. Also, I have no service whatsoever. I tried pressing the reset button, but nothing happened.

Please help!

Yesterday i accidentally dropped my Blackberry Curve 8520 into water , i took the battery out to dry , i dried all of my phone . but after i put the battery back in, once it was fully dry, the phone turned...


Hello,

this is happening because water has not 1005 dried off the phone. There is still an atom of water in the phone.

There is nothing to worry about, all you need to do is to give the phone sometime and it will respond perfectly again.

While the phone is on, the heat the phone produces when it on will dry the water completely sooner or later.

So there is nothing to worry about, just give some time....

Good luck.

I accidentally dropped my phone in water and then the power button (red) wouldn't work. But then I took out the battery, plugged it in the charger, and then replaced the battery while it was still plugged in. It worked!

I dropped my phone yesterday in water. I took it out quickly and dried it off. It works perfectly fine now but the navigation keys' back light won't turn off. When my phone is off the lights are still on...


There is still some water, perhaps corrosion now, inside the phone.

The best thing to have done is to pull the battery off as soon as it happened, and take it to retailer so that they can get it dried out before damage occurred.

Since your phone is now damaged, your recourse likely will be to replace the phone using insurance / oops protection, or start carrying an extra battery.

My samsung impression dropped in water and touch screen broke


I also dropped my Samsung Impression in the toilet, I immediately took the phone took the protective case off, took the battery cover off, and took the battery and my SIM card out and towel dried it as best as I could. Then I sat it on the floor next to my fan and let it dry until I got to my grandparents a little while later and I put it in a bowl of rice, completely covered the phone and battery with rice and left it sit overnight in the rice and all of the next day, so far i've had it on about 20 minutes and have had no problems with it so far, another solution is to sit it in the sun, to further dry it out. Water damage will void warranties on your phone and battery and your provider will know instantly if the damage was water related when they take your battery cover off, there is a small square sticker that when dry and hasn't touched water should be white, but as soon as it comes into contact with water it turns red, there is also one of these stickers on the battery. My stickers were red and after sitting in the rice they look like they got lighter in color considerably, I don't know if that is really possible but appearance wise it looks that way. I hope this helps anyone who has had this problem. Good Luck!

Got water damage and wont turn on


I dropped my phone in the toilet and surprisingly it still works. First I took the battery off and dried the phone and battery as much as I could. Then I took my blow dryer and a towel where I folded the towel in half and positioned the phone and the blow dryer under the towel and left it going for about an hour. The next day I took the phone and sat it in the sun until the inside moisture was gone. Then I charged it my phone has been working fine ever since and that was nearly two months ago.

Water


Sometimes when electronics are dropped in water, you can still use the. Circut boards have a silicon coat over the circut boards for instances like this. Depending on how long it was in the water, you may be able to still use it. Let the phone dry out for about 24 hrs (take out battery and back cover) then try to replace the battery and start it back up. If it doesnt turn on the circuts were affected and it broken.

Everything works but the touch screen.


caring for the touch screen includes touching the screen with clean and DRY hands., if your phone fell in the water, it will likely damage the touch screen.. contact your nearest LG repair center.. i hope your phone will soon be fine..

Phone dropped in soda


Well you know now that the warranty is void, so you should take the phone to a mobile service center and have them service it to try and have it working for you again......but most water/liuid damaged phones are like a 50/50 chance of working again.

Katana II likely water damage... Help!


Take the battery off, unfold the phone, set it in a warm, dry place and pray like heck. plugging it in may help it stay warm but leave it off.
If its minor water exposure it'll likely be fine in 2-3 days.
