Cell phone LG chocolate 3 got wet and after dry microphone doesn't work well

My LG chocolate phone when thru the wash! Yikes!! I dried it out for 2 days. Everything works now, except the microphone seems inconsistent, Sometimes it works, and sometimes I get a message "Your handset does not have a microphone. You must unplug for the microphone to work". What do I do to fix this?

The least you could do is lie to us and say there is a fix! I had the same thing happen to me. I took a shower and when I got out my wife had taken my clothes (phone in pocket) and put them in the wash.

I put mine in the dryer on low heat wrapped in some socks to lessen impact and it seemed to dry it out well except for the mic. I am also told that if you put your phone in a bowl of dry rice, the rice will **** the moisture out so that is next on my list!

If the rice idea doesn't work I am going to see a witch doctor as a last resort then smash my phone with a baseball bat and scream at it.

Good luck!

So I dropped my LG chocolate in water . actually it was in the rain . anyways, the ok button in the navigation wheel doesn't work . I press as hard as I can and it still doesn't work . my mom won't let me...

You still fortunate!!!
But don't press this button hardly,cuz it can damage to your device.
i think your cell's circuit still wet,so uninstall your battery from your device and get dry.
still it is not working,go to the should be as quick as you can before getting your device worse.

Spilled OJ by accident on my LG ENVY Touch, everything else is working but the microphone. I could still use the headphone, but when I want to answer the call as normal, the other party could not hear me...

ok 1 of two things is going on,... 1 . the phone could be still wet inside try using blow dryer to help to dry it up.
2. you could have fried the circut leading to the speaker. if drying does not repair then you will need o service your phone.

I got it wet, I immediately removed the battery and let it dry thoroughly. It turned back on but displays a screen I've never seen with the Verizon logo and a quaint message that says " LGVX8500 Downloader...

well i guess its late, but every time one of my phones got wet i would take the battery off and dry it with a hair blower. ( the ones that women use to dry their hair). trust me , it works. just dont put it too close or it would burn it.

Error message: unapproved battery

Water is very bad for these devices, obviously. The battery was damaged when it got wet. Take your phone in with you and get a new battery. Fortunately it sounds like your phone will be ok.

My phone got wet

Take the battery out and let it dry for a day then put it back in the phone and it might work. If you don't have any luck after that then take it back and get a new one.

Broken cellphone

Sorry but once they have been wet they are trouble.
remove the battery and leave it to dry for about a week , then try it again if you still have the same trouble you are looking at getting a new phone
