Question about HP iPAQ H4155 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Dumb problem - got it wet!

Took it up to the mountains yesterday - it fell out of my shirt pocket and into a shallow creek but was still submerged. Let it dry but doesn't work. I'm not technically minded but my husband might be able to fix it - He's the resident computer geek. Any suggestion what to look for in fixing it? I know he'll have to tear it appart to test the different bits but HP wanted $49 just to have them look at it. Thanks, Thea (a.k.a. Clueless in Colorado!)

Power plug fell and got submerged in water, cannot get power to appliance ever since. I took plug apart and dried inside, but when i plug it into the plug -in there's no lights, power or anything at all....


does it have a ground protect circuit on? if it does you have to open and clean it with acetone and a tooth brush or replace the plug.

Dropped my phone in water


Take as much of the outside casing apart as you can and remove battery if possible straight away then leave submerged in a bowl of rice overnight. Sounds silly but it works. Hope this helps.

Razr phone just fell out of back pocket into toilet. I took of back cover & removed battery. What next?


Dry the phone, battery, sim card, 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.

I also have a Sony Ericsson K850I and dropped in the water.


you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

Dropped phone in water


SIM is probably bad or a little wet. but wait and let everything dry out and see if it works. Mine was soaked and the next morning worked fine. at least you probably won't have to buy a new phone.

TI-83 calc. fell in creek and rusted where the batteries go.


I can't think of a way to save it. It would be more cost/time effective to just buy a new one. (Why did you have it with you at a creek? That's kind of funny.) Sorry.
