I've seen this done a couple of times... by my brother in law, and my cousin. Take the battery out. Then, take a hair dryer and hold it pretty close to the phone and dry it out from every angle. Make the air flow into every crevice ( the microphone, the battery compartment, speaker, key pad, the sides, everywhere!) Keep doing it for 15 or even 20 minutes solid. With my cousin, you could actually see the water drying up inside the LCD display area. When we turned it back on it worked.

Tip

Dropped the cell phone or mobile in water


Dropped the cell phone in water
If you would have accidently dropped your cell phone in water or it fell in water you can try fixing it be these below tips
1. Remove the battery of the mobile and try drying it with a hair dryer
2. Put the cell phone in a raw rice container for a day, the rice will soak the moisture and the mobile will become dry from inside
3. After that put the battery back on and try switching, there are more chances now that it will work
4. Never try to instantly switch on the cell phone after taking it out from water you should follow the above steps, switching it on instantly can lead to short circuit in mobile and the cell software can get damaged
5. You can also put the phone in light sunlight (not in very hot direct sunlight) after removing the battery do not put the battery in sunlight though
6. Also make sure you keep the SIM card out of the mobile

By taking these steps you can make a fair attempt to save your mobile from dying.

Dropped in toilet


Congratulations!!! remove every parts you can i.e. battery, SIM card and memory card. Make sure each and every single drop of water is out. Wrap the mobile phone thick with a piece of cloth and keep it on a warm place ( Not too warm ) like Above the TV( thats the best i can suggest) for couple of days, 3-4 days will be sufficient. Make sure you don't switch it ON while its wet otherwise the Flash IC might get fried by the battery. After 3-4days of evaporating the water from your Mobile, keep fingers crossed and switch ON the Mobile. If switched ON perfectly for 10-15 minutes (try checking all the feature in this time period) the mobile phone is in good status and if it doesn't kindly purchase a new Phone because i won't suggest you to get it repaired as once Nokia phone goes for a repairing it will always ask for repairing after 2-3 months.

Sidekick 3 dropped in a cup of water. Water got into screen.


Is the screen blank all the time?

If you look really hard can you see the items on the screen but they are really dark? If so the back light for the lcd may have burned out.

Take a look at the following site for instructions on disassembly.

http://www.gsfx.org/disassembly/index.htm

If you feel comfortable with it, you can easily replace your own.
A new lcd runs about 50 dollars shipped. If you buy it from ebay, they will usually come with instructions and the screwdriver you need. A T6 torx driver is the type needed.

Good job on drying it out and pulling the battery. Thats the best thing you can do when you get it wet!
