Re: my phone is brok

You need to remove all the varistor that is on the keypad teh components that has a "V" on it look beside the "LED" on the keypad. Also before doing that soke it in Vodca its a good alcohol to clean with, use tooth brush and scrab scrab scrab! Good luck

I dropped my phone is water, and i took i apart ASAP. i dried it with a hair...

Take it out of the water and remove the battery. Then put the battery in dry rice and cover it overnight. The rice sucks out all the water and you should be ready to go. It worked for me.

Dropped phone in pool. Immediatly dried it out using the rice method( took battery out). 24 hours later put battery back in to see if phone worked and the "flash" light came on. Phone wouldnt turn on.

If you think you can do it taking the whole phone apart worked for someone i know. don't know if it's to late since you powered it up already. Probably worth a shot though.

Wet phone; incomming calls cant hear me..

if you took the phone apart and let it dry but its still acting funny you very likely fried the computer board inside the phone. If the phone was on when you dropped it in liquid you probably did. Also, the lemonade having sugar has likely caused corrosion inside the phone. you could clean the inside of the phone with alcohol and see about getting it to co-operate, but be careful and keep yourself grounded and leave the battery out when you clean. You might be s-o-l

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.

Sreen has gone blank

This happened to me when I dropped my phone in the sink. I took it all apart and laid all the parts out to dry for 2 hours. It works fine now. You can also try doing a hard reset. Keep the phone turned on and take the battery out. Wait 30 secs before replacing the battery. If that doesn't help, try calling your service provider.

Not able to talk

You might have severed a wire that's connected to the phone's speaker. You were very lucky to save your phone as much as you did. I don't think there's anything you can do yourself, but you probably won't have to replace the whole thing, if you find a cheap place to service it. Just some minor work. I find this one of the main problems with living with celular phones these days, you can't push people into a pool anymore. If anyone comes up with a waterproof Cell phone, that person would be a milionaire ;] Good luck!
