Do not turn on the phone!!, take the battery out and dry the battery contacts.

Put the phone on top of a radiator and allow the water to evaporate, do not allow the phone to get too hot.

This may work if you are lucky

Samsung SGH-T919 screen is not functioning properly... I need help!


It's possible that it's water damage. Usually thats the problem that I've seen when touch screens stop functioning properly. You can check for water damage by taking out the battery. There should be a little white box somewhere on the battery. But if that box is blue, then it is water damage. If you are not comfortable taking apart your phone, I would bring it to your nearest phone provider's store location and ask them to check if its due to water damage.

The good news is that if it ISN'T due to water damage, and it's just a software malfunction, they should replace it for free!

Hope this helped

My touchscreen doesn't work,


Usually when touch screen doesn't work, it's a sign of water damage. It's also possible that you dropped it at some point and ruined the sensors inside. But it's PROBABLY water damage. What you can do is bring it to your phone carrier's closest store and ask them to check if your phone suffered water damage. They'll open the phone up and look. If it is water damage, you'll probably have to pay for a new one...If you're insured, it probably won't be that expensive.

The good news is, if you bring it there and it ISN'T water damage, you probably won't have to pay anything at all for them to replace it. Hope this helps!

My daughters LG KS360phone has stopped working - the dealer (optus) say they won't accept it for warranty repairs unless I pay them $50 in case its water damaged - does anyone know how to check for water...


Hi,

The most basic way to check for water damage is to open the back cover and take the battery out. Either on the battery itself or on the phone under the battery there should be a white square or circle. This is called the LDI (liquid damage indicator), if this is still white then there is no water damage. But if this is red or pink there is water damage.

Hope this helps,
Joe

Nokia 1661 slight water damage - test mode


you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

Water damage. never been near water. we are told it was in cold weather and the condensation caused water to get inside.


Unfortunately water damage is usually permanent because it results in a short circuit which often fries the boards. However, if your electronics device made contact with water while OFF, fear not. It should still work provided that you wait until the innards are dry and the water evaporated. The water build up probably came from water condensation. If it hasn't fried, dry it out REALLY well and hope that it hasn't already been damaged. If you already turned it on without luck, then it looks like you have a broken iPhone on your hands. Sorry.

Hey


When my screen got wet, I took it to Verizon. If your water indicater doesn't show any water damage they will give you a free phone no charge.
The water indicater is located underneath the battery, Pop the battery off and if the little circle is red there is no water damage.
Hope this helps.
