How to dry Pantech C610

I saw this on TV for drying out cell phones...just recently. First remove the battery. Then partially fill two zip baggies with rice. Put the battery in one bag and zip, then put the cell phone in the other and zip. Let stand overnight. They should be dry by morning. Let me know if this works. It really sounded too simple. But logic tells me that the rice WILL draw all the moisture out.

I accidently washed my cell phone in the washing machine. Can I dry it out and how do I do it?

oops am really sorry for you mate but since the phone was been washed with water and was one it will short circuit the board thus making the phone unusable, dont try like many people said put your phone in microwave and it will dry the water.. NO!! dont ever try anything like this, its like you wanting to make a dead man alive!! Sorry mate!

I got C phone model DA-127 wet. Will it dry out and work or not?

Dear friend, The device will surely work when its dry.
but first remove the battery and dont try to operate it. leave it to dry
by the way try to obtain some de-ionised water(if you can) If the de-ionised water is available then try to wash your phone with this deionised water. Dont worry. Deionized water does no harm to electronic devices. Washing in deionised water further cleans your phone from the deposits that are likely to be present due to the water it actually came in contact with first.
If you have proper tools then try to dismantle the phone as far as possible. atleast the Plastic/ Fiber case.
now leave the phone to dry.
you may use hot air hairdriers for this purpose. also IR bed is preferred.
If you prefer natural method of drying the phone leave it in sunlight for atleast 1 hour.
Then in sert your battery and switch it ON. It will be good as new

My cell phone went through the clothes washer and no longer works. I tried drying it out with a lamp directed on it and then tried to recharge it. It still won't come on


To fully dry up water from phone, you will need to use a methylated spirit and a brush by dipping the brush and in the methylated spirit. But first you will need to unscrew the phone and apply the process on the board of the phone.

Wash the board carefully,and use a dryer to dry the board,live to dry for awhile and couple the phone back. I think that will help.

Take care.

My Samsung Eternity got wet - now the screen


phone can be fixed.

The water that entered the phone has stayed in the phone for too long and it has affected the screen of the phone.

Even till now the water has not fully dried up in the phone and it might still get some other damages if not serviced to dry up the remaining water in it.

Unscrew the phone and use a methylated spirit and a brush to wash of the board of the phone.

After washing the board of the phone, put it under something to heat the board to dry faster and couple the phone back.

i will advice if you do not have the knowledge to fix up the phone, you can take it a mobile engineer to fix it for you in other to cause further damages to the phone.

Have a nice day.

My 5130 was contacted with virus,later it switch off & now it was on,i cant charge & it was getting hot? how can u help to get the phone back to normal?


loose the phone, and wash the phone panel with menthylated spirit and soft tooth brush. Dry phone panel with a bulb and don't wash the screen. You have to detach the screen before you wash the phone panel.

Likewise the the charging port and the battery terminal. Check if ite bridging in any way.

Allow it to dry, couple the phone back and try again.

Maybe you should test the phone with another battery.

Take care.
