Take apart the phone and put it in a plastic bag with silica gel(the things you find in a shoebox in a packet labled DO NOT EAT) this acts a dessicant and aborbs the water right out. its also used to keep moisture outta the shoes. fun fact for ya there

Since cellphones have ways of indicating water damage (internally AND externally), warranty service is pretty much out of the question. You can TRY using a blowdryer (on LOW heat) to make sure the insides of the phone are dry, and put the battery back in to see if works. Incidently, the lithium-ion batteries in cellphones are potentially dangerous; anything that might short them out, like physical damage, water inside, could cause them to catch fire and burn like a flare! Also, you don't want to get them too hot, say over 140 degrees F-same result.

Hey i think i just figured out the problem to all the port charging issues for the envy and envy 2 phones with verizon. its not the phones, its the charger cord! the part that goes into the phone. it gets pulled out over time from pulling the cord out of the phone all the time. get a pair of pliers. grab the end and push the metal end of the cord against somthing hard, push it back in so it is at the appropriate depth. this should make it charge properly again!

SOURCE: LG Renoir Battery issues

My renoir has just developed this issue.

I have tried 2 batteries, tried re-flashing the firmware (even tried a custom firmware) and nothing.

I am buying another battery to see if i were unlucky with the battery I bought.

This does not appear to be an uncommon issue as I have found several threads online regarding this. No definitive answer as yet.

How do i know if machine is condensing the water properly


Simple. When in the Drying Cycle, does the water pump turn on and pump out a 4-8 ounces of water - about every 4-5 minutes?
To check, pull the drain hose out of the wall (drain pipe) and hold it a few inches above the drain pipe, so you will be able to see when water comes out. Typically, the pump turns on for about 30 seconds every 4-5 minutes.
It is important that the cold water is turned on, and is available all through the drying cycle, because a light spray is constantly used to cool the internal condenser.
I'm assuming the Dryer is getting hot. If not, see previous posts about the Heating Element and Working Thermostat.
I'm also assuming the little blower fan is working. It's at the very top, slightly to the back right. It should be on continuously, during drying.
Remove top (2 torx screws at rear) to observe.

Tip

How To Quickly Repair Your Mobile Phone Dropped In Water


Now, there is no need to panic if your mobile phone gets dropped in water or you get stuck up in a bad rain and your clothes as well as your mobile phone gets wet. All you need to do is follow the following three tips that will fix your phone with water damage:-

(A) Act Quickly : straight away get into action and remove every cover and detachable part you possibly can like memory card, the SIM card, battery and back cover, etc. Now use a toilet paper or a thin cloth to blot away any excess water you can see inside of the phone and be sure to get as much as you can. Otherwise, all this water will start evaporating and collecting in hard to reach various places in your phone.
Your phone may work now if it was only submerged for a short period of time.


B) Quick Drying : Grab a hairdryer and start drying your phone paying extra attention to the battery housing as this normally has small holes which allow air (and ironically enough water) into the phone.

warning: Don’t hold the hair dryer too close to the phone. Keep it at a distance whereby if you put your hand in front of the hair dryer it would not burn you. Bringing it closer could damage your phone’s electrical components. If i am sounding serious, try putting a hair dryer up against a sheet of paper for a few seconds. It turns it brown – would you want that happening to the inside of your phone?

If 20-30 minutes of this doesn’t work – go to plan C.


C) Long Term Drying : By putting it in a warm dry place you allow the water to slowly evaporate and escape through the holes in the phone (remove the covers and battery when doing this).

My nokia n70 is dropped into water for a few minutes and when i got it and switched it on, first in responded as "offline" so i let it dry for a few minutes then i switched it on again, all...


The best way to treat a cellphone after it got wet is to let it off and dry for more than 24 hours before turning it on. What happened is that the water inside the phone burned some electronic parts inside when it was first turned on.

I highly recommend to bring it to the nearest Nokia Service Center to have proper repairs.

Phone fell in water tub now screen is not working love_life_23@hotmail.com


these were the first 5 things you would have done when it fell
  1. Turn the device off and do not charge it - You want to keep the phone non-operational while it dries out.
  2. Drip dry and shake off as much water as possible
  3. Dismantle whatever you can - If you are able to remove the battery and cover, do so. The more you expose the better it will dry.
  4. Cover your phone in a bowl of rice - Rice will help absorb moisture like how it does in salt shakers.
  5. Draw it away with a vacuum cleaner held over the affected areas for up to 20 minutes in each accessible area, having already removed the majority of liquids and moisture manually and dried all visible moisture by hand, so that none enters the vacuum cleaner. This method is preferable to leaving it to dry naturally as it halts any oxidation from occurring deep inside, such as can result in functional issues later on. This is the fastest way (less than thirty minutes after your phone drowns, it can be completely dry and working, especially if you are able to also partly or fully disassemble it) to quickly get all the internal moisture out of the phone effectively and stop the internals from 'rotting' away. Remember that the goal is to **** all the moisture and humidity out of the phone not to blow it even further in and create even more evil humidity deep inside
now tat its nt working it seems its not sensitive to touch replace

Dropped phone in water for about 2 sec and pulled it apart right way and let it dry, can it be fixed


Hi,

problem can be solved.When a phone drops into water the water stays inside the phone.When the water dries insid the board of the phone, it might bridge two IC together and cause demage or makes the phone to act in a strange way.

In order to remove the water from the phone the phone needs to be serviced for it to work properly.

Get a screw driver that can loosen the screws on the phone, unscrew and remove the board of the phone, get a methylated spirit and a brush to clean the board in other to remove the water inside the phone.

After brushing the board, leave it to dry for 10 minutes and fix it back into the phone and the phone will be back to live.

NOTE: if you can lose the phone , i would advice you take it to a mobile engineer to fix it for you in other to cause further damage to the phone.

Have a nice day.

Water on my iphone


  1. Get it out of the water as soon as possible. The plastic covers on cell phones are fairly tight, but water can enter the phone in a short period of time, perhaps only 20 seconds or less. So grab your phone quickly! If you can't get to it in time, your best bet is to remove the battery while it is still under water. Water helps dissipate heat from shorts that can damage the phone, so most damage occurs when the inside of the phone is merely wet and there is a power source. This can go both ways. Being under water is more likely to short the battery to even more sensitive contacts, so be careful.
  2. Don't Panic. Your phone will probably not be too damaged if you right away take it out of the water. While it's in the water, immediately take it out.
  3. Remove the battery. This is one of the most important steps. Don't take time to think about it; electricity and water do not mix. Cutting power to your phone is a crucial first step in saving it. Many circuits inside the phone will survive immersion in water provided they are not attached to a power source when wet.
  4. If you have a GSM carrier, remove your SIM card. Some or all of your valuable contacts (along with other data) could be stored on your SIM. To some people this could be more worth saving than the phone itself. SIM cards survive water damage well, but some of the following steps are unnecessary i.e. don't heat it. Just pat it dry and leave it aside until you need to connect your phone to your cellular network. (This step does not apply to CDMA carriers such as Verizon, Alltel, US Cellular, Sprint, etc.)
  5. Dry your phone. Obviously you need to remove as much of the water as soon as possible, so you can save it from getting into the phone. Shake it out without dropping it, then use a towel or paper towel (ideally trying not to clog the wet paper in the gaps and grooves of the phone) to gently remove as much of the remaining water as possible. Dry the excess moisture by hand.
  6. Remove any covers and external connectors to open up as many gaps, slots, and crevices in the phone as possible.
  7. Use a vacuum cleaner if possible. Do not use a hair dryer (even on a "cold" mode) to dry out the phone, as this may force moisture further into the small components, deep inside the phone. If moisture is driven deeper inside, corrosion and oxidation may result when minerals from liquids are deposited on the circuitry. Using a hairdryer might be a temporary fix, but this will eventually cause component failure inside the phone. Instead, remove all residual moisture by drawing it away with a vacuum cleaner held over the affected areas for up to 20 minutes in each accessible area. This is the fastest method and can completely dry out your phone and get it working in thirty minutes. Be careful not to hold the vacuum too close to the phone, as a vacuum can create static electricity, which is even worse.
  8. Use a substance with a high affinity for water to help draw out moisture. Leave the phone in a bowl or bag of uncooked rice overnight. The rice would absorb any remaining moisture. If available, it is preferable to use desiccant instead. Desiccant will absorb moisture better than rice. It may be found under a brand name such as the "BHEESTIE Bag™" "DRY-ALL" "Damp Rid" or "Dry Right".
  9. Let the phone sit on absorbent towels, napkin, or other paper. Remember that the goal is to evacuate all the moisture and humidity, not to trap it or add even more. Check the absorbent material every hour for 4 to 6 hours. If moisture is evident, repeat the vacuuming step and desiccant steps.
  10. Test your phone. After you have waited a day or so, make sure everything is clean and dry looking and re-attach the battery to the phone and see if it works. If your phone does not work, try plugging it into its charger without the battery, if this works, you need a new battery. If not, try taking your cell phone to an authorized dealer. Sometimes they can fix it. Don't try to hide the fact that it has been wet. There are internal indicators that prove moisture.
  11. Take the phone apart If your phone doesn't turn on at all. Try taking it apart. First, make sure that you have ALL the right parts and know exactly where they go. Be sure to put everything back in its proper place once finished. As you're disassembling it, pat each individual part dry with a small towel and use the vacuum cleaner once more on the crevices. If this doesn't work go to the professionals.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
