LG RUMOR went through washing machine!

My lg rumor went through the wash about 3 days ago and we have been trying to dry it out ever since. The phone works, u can call it and it rings, but the screen is completely white, you cant see anything. Is there any hope in letting it dry out longer? ir should i just buy a new phone? please help me!

Well, having a few problems with the rumor of my own (without having it go through the wash) I found out that it's a VERY FRAGILE phone. The connection between the two parts of the phone can cause the screen to become white (which is a problem I have) I think your best bet would be to buy a new phone.

I read in a magazine that putting it in a bowl of rice takes all the water out!

You should buy a new phone, 90 percent of the time the screen shorts out when it gets wet. These phones are terrible, i would take advantage of having to get a new phone and get something completely different.

Phone is going to die. Hate to break bad news but phones are not built for any form of water contact.

You could try however taking the battery out and placing them in a jar of rice for a day or 2.

Rice likes to absorb moisture and usually, not all the time, but usually does an awesome job at saving wet phones

You need to try Silica Gel Packets to dry out your phone. There was a good article on associatedcontent.com that explains how to dry a wet cell phone, iPods, or any electronics.

You need to place your cell phone in a zip lock bag with Silica Gel Packets. Silica Gel will remove all the moisture from the phone and its components, something air drying will not do!

Just Google "Silica Gel Packets" and you will find several companies selling these products. There is also a web site called: http://www.SilicaGelPackets.com that has them.

I can't turn on SpinSense on my LG WM3987HW combo washer-dryer. I've tried pressing the button for 3 seconds in nearly every mode, on or off, locked, unlocked, wash, spin, rinse. I've managed to get it on...


I have an earlier version of your machine (WM3988HWA). What I've found is that you can't use the Spinsense feature if you've got the Dry cycle set to go after your wash. I have no idea why they designed it this way!
We run the wash first without setting it to dry, and have no problem turning Spinsense on. I usually hold it down for 3 second after hitting the start button, but you can also do it before you start the wash. When the wash is done, then we start a dry cycle.
This is the main flaw with our otherwise great machine. I posted about it at http://www.fixya.com/ThreadAsker.aspx?thid=1844295 a long time ago but never got any advice.

LG Rumor 2 charges but won't turn on


Remove the battery and the sim card and leave it in a warm place (not on top of a radiator) for a few days.

(If it is possible to open the case without doing any damage, then this would speed up the drying process

How do i fix a wet lg rumor?


Get it out of water immediately.Make sure phone is turned off. Take out battery, open all doors on phone and put the entire phone with the keyboard extended out inside a huge jar of raw uncooked rice, I had mine in a screw-type peanut butter jar with the phone buried. keep in a there for about three to four days.....make sure the battery is out the entire time and you dry it with soft towels,DO NOT USE A BLOW Dryer AT all.....
You can blow the water in deeper...I have the Green LG Rumour 1..
The rice will absorb the water,,,I first had the phone in cat litter till we bought the rice.
I made the mistake of taking it to Sprint that night and they turned it on and the water droplets were in the screen....DO NOT turn the phone on for about 4 days or more...make sure the phone is bone dry....About 5 days later, take the phone of the rice jar,,,,look for any signs of moisture, if none, then plug in the phone and see if the green light comes on, on the side of the screen,,,if yes...then put the battery in....if good then try out the phone's systems...I did this tonight, my round button is gone, I got my phone list copied and my pictures,,,I was most worried about my pix !
I am still trying to find a way to get my text messages back :)

Flash stuck on LG VX6100


If it survived one dunking it will most liklet survive a second SOOOOO. I am into R/C stuff and when our gear gets dunked we rinse it out with ultra pure water, Deionised/distilled water if you can get it. I think that the detergent in the washing machine may have left a residue and be affecting your electronics so if you wash it carefully in distilled water (yep dunk it again, crack it open and wash it all inside)to get rid of the detergent residue on the board (note REMOVE BATTERY). Afterwards dunk it in methylated spirits (test to make sure it wont affect any plastic parts first)to remove the water and leave to dry in a warm spot for a day at least. 2 years ago I dropped a $500 transmitter in a dirty dam (Acid /fuel/road runoff)and did exactly this and its been fine ever since. Worked the next day in fact. Its not a mobile phone but its always worth a chance. Once you've finished you may want to take it apart after you've tested it if its going and spray the board with CRC 226 circuit cleaner and water repeller. I've got it on all of my R/C gear and it gets regularly soaked for up to 1hr at a time in muddy water and is all fine.
