Having teens we have had many contacts with water and phones. A guy at TMobile told us to use a hair dryer, diligently for several days being patient, only low low heat. It has saved at least 3 phones and even one iPod that went throught the washer. Just be sure to lower the heat and don't do it for longer that about 10 minutes at one time. I hope this will help. you have nother to loose right? g.l.

Lg vx6100 won't turn on or charge


There may be liquid damage present. First using a flashlight, inspect the battery contacts and data/charging socket for green mold/water damage. If nothing unusual is discovered you could disassemble and inspect the inner circuit boards for white residue that would be left behind from water calcium, clean the calcium from the circuit board with a slightly wet toothbrush and dry with compressed air or a hair dryer.

Looked at the timne this morning after being at work a little bit (started at 8pm) thought damn its going slow today looked again a little wile later said the same time 8:21 tryed turning it off wouldnt...


There could be many problems, but none of them can be solved by troubleshooting.

The two most likely issues are water damage, or a hardware/electrical problem caused by damaged internal components.

To determine if there is water damage, open the back panel and remove the battery. Behind where the battery normally rests, or below it, there will be a small circular sticker. If that sticker is white, then it has not been exposed to moisture. If it is any other color then your phone has water damage.

If you cannot find water damage then your phone is either suffering from a damaged hardware. However, in the off chance that your phone is only suffering from a minor error hold down the power button while the phone is not plugged in and there is no battery inserted for about one minute. Then insert the battery and attempt to turn the phone on.

If this doesn't help your only hope is contact your carrier and see if you can get it replaced.

I have a droid 2 that fell in water it still works but the screen is to dark i have to put under a lamp to see the screen how to fix it to see the screen again.


Hi, what causes the screen to go dark,is because of the water that it fell in. It didn't try properly inside the phone. Water is not friendly with phone, they damage phones so easily.

The water has damaged the tube that makes the light display .

Phone is a little bit complicated, so i would advice you contact a skilled personnel for assistance in replacing the light that was affected by the water.

Thanks for using fixya...

HOW TO REPAIR WATER DAMAGE GT-S5620 BRAND NEW


First of all, do not turn it on, it could cause more damage to your phone. Take out the battery, and completely dry the phone before trying to use again.
Here is the procedure to take out all moisture trapped in the phone: Dry the phone, battery, any accessory, etc. with cloth and wrap each piece, phone and accessories, in newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped phone in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your phone because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the phone. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs. Hope this helps!

Samsung jet no sim mode ??


there is a possibility that it can be, but check first your phone profiles through settings, phone profiles, check the profile modes, if offline mode is check, select another profile mode from your phone, normal, outdoor, meeting, up to you. but after you made this and the phone has the same issue, then do the following, turn off your phone, remove your sim, clean the sim's contact's surface with pencil eraser and wipe it out by soft cloth, clean those six contact's on your phone, but be very careful cause one bent of contact's what you'll get is a damaged phone,.
once finished, insert again your sim and check. if nothing happened, then do a factory reset, remove your sim, switch on your phone, and type this code to your keypad *2767*3855#..
good luck

Startup problem, start screen keeps restarting


Oh tell me about it!. Geat phone, but now mine just displays the telus logo as well, and I know i didn't get mine wet. Taking the battery out is the only way to turn off now. Of course this happened no more then a week after my repair agreement ran out. Had to buy another phone at full price, now the 8100 sits on a shelf with all my contacts on it and no way to get them :-(.

This seems to be a common problem. The same thing happened to me about 8 months ago. I'm still using the same phone, and I even have to carry around a list of contacts just so I can call people. I brought the phone into the Verizon store and they claimed it was water damage. The little water damage sticker thing didn't show that it was water damage, but they said there was corrosion inside the phone. I still don't believe that it was water damage, considering the number of people that had the same exact problem. I get to upgrade soon though, and I've learned my lesson - I'm getting the full coverage insurance. Just so they don't try to say it was water damage again, if anything happens, I'm just going to say it was stolen.
