Dropped phone in water

I dropped my phone in water, but it worked fine for the next couple of minutes, then it started to vibrate constantly and wouldn't stop. i took the battery out and noticed water so i used the rice technique. Is there anything else i can do to save my phone?

My Motorola razr went through 2 cycles of washing machine! I fixed it by removing the battery first, letting it thoroughly dry out using a cold setting on a hair dryer, after opening the battery compartment, folding open the phone and even a bit of sundrying, Another gentler method of drying it is by leaving it on a
UPS system where the temperature wont exceed 45C or so. I was careful not to turn it on soon after I picked it up from the washing machine.
I have heard- but havent tried it- of people successfully using WD20 or one of those silicone sprays on electronic items to dry them out.

No much. probably it already has a short internal.
you can open the pone and try to use a hair dryer to dry out the phone, but I don't think that is going help.

Tip

If your cell phone gets into water...


Two differents situations can occur when you drop your cell phone in water: depends if it is salt water (beach) or fresh water (rain, etc). I use to repair cell phones for 6 years, and this is my best recommendation.
If the phone gets into fresh water, just remove the battery immediately, because the battery normally creates a short circuit inside the phone, then try without battery and if you can remove part of the housing, do it and put a small fan or a hair blower ( not too hot) aside the phone at least for 15 minutes continue, moving around constantly. This has to be done immediately, because the minerals in some types of water can cause bridges between the IC (integrated circuits), and cause malfunctions.
If the phone gets into salt water, and this include if you drop it into the toilet while urinating (remember, the urine if full in chemicals, most of them are salts), although it sounds crazy, just immediately remove the battery, and give a fresh water wash, I mean, try to wash all the salt from the phone, and then start doing the process to dry it as described before. 
Two tips more: It is probably that your battery will damage permanently, and nothing can be done. And, this not guarantee that the phone will work, because it depends on how long it was soaked. In a next opportunity, I can give you a little higher difficult level to do in order to completely recover your phone from future problems due to water damage.

Charging port may be damaged. Take it to your cell provider or repair shop and let them look at it. Could also be the phone is damaged some how. Did you drop it or did it get wet in ANY way?

Hi,

The sea salt water has made the charging port corrode. So get a screw driver, open the phone and bring out the charging port. The charging port is where you put our charger. Use methylated spirit to brush the charging port and the panel where the charging port is place.

Dry it for 30 minutes and couple the phone and it will start working fine.

Phone swam in coffee, vibrate problem.


If the phone is worthless to you without vibrate mode, you should remove the battery and immerse the phone in distilled water. Agitate it for a few minutes, then dry it for another week, rotating the phone to a different position every day.
If that doesn't work, call your service provider about replacing your phone. I think you will find repair to be the most expensive option.
You can save money by downgrading on some features. For instance, do you really need a phone that will work after being dropped in coffee?

Submerged my vx8300 phone in water


this oes look serious and there is really a very small chance that the phone would be able to work after veing in the water and recovering after such a long time This might just not help  but seeing the condiion  you might also try to wipe off any water in the battery panel use a ear bud to do so you might see a few drops of water .  clean them up Maybe the phone would start working also keeping the phone in front of the heater is not a good idea if the heater is giving out a  lot of heat electronics dont respond well to heat try putting the phone below a Lamp or something they give decent heat
hopefully your phone would be up and running in the next few days.

I dorped my cell phone


There's no cure, it's dead, sorry. Water and mobiles don't go together. Give it a worthy burial, say a few nice words and let it go gently to the heavens where mobile souls go.

Try a Nokia next. They are certainly better than LG.
