1st phone
-since the phone was wet the probable problem of your unit might be either its antenna switch or power amplifier. I suggest to go to service center.
2nd phone
-need to replace the LCD of the phone.

My nokia c3 got wet and i turned it on its shows only white screen is there a high chance it will go back to normal?

You should have turn if off imediately and removed the battery and then dried out your cell phone for several days in a warm dry place.
Most likely the cell phone is damaged, you maybe lucky, remove the battery and dry your cell phone for several days, then see if it works properly.
If it does not work, I suggest you put your money towards a new cell phone instead of getting it repaired as the cost of repair may not be a cost effective solution.

Hi my Nokia 5230 touchscreen phone got wet in my bag this morning and now it isnt working, the lights go on and i can phone it from the house phone, but the screen is blank so i cant read, sent texts of...

Take battery, back cover, sim card and memory card out. Leave it in dry and warm place. Let it be there 2-4 days and let it dry, after this you can hope it works but there is no guarantee.

Hope it helps.

Assalam o alaikum. my cell drop into water tommorrow next day working right.but now many of buttons are not working??? what i can do for this? Thanks

Number 1 rule if your phone gets wet... DO NOT turn it on.
Remove the battery from the phone. get a small ziploc freezer bag place phone in bag pour uncooked grains of rice into bag. Enough to cover phone completely. Close bag. Let it sit for at least 2 days.
This is to absorb all the moisture from the phone. Remove phone, insert battery and try using it. It may work. But you need to wait until your phone is completely dry before attempting to use it.

My phone no work , &my phone creen was white

When phone is blank. There have been many incidents ofpeople accidentally dropping their cell phones into various bodies of water orother liquids. If this happens to you and your cell phone gets wet, you maythink at first that it is damaged beyond repair and dread the cost and hassleof replacing it. But with some resourceful thinking, in many cases it ispossible to save a wet cell phone if you take action quickly enough. Remove battery and Sim cardimmediately. 1. Wait it out. Yes, it's boring and will take a while, butthis is probably the safest method overall. Just let the phone sit out in a dryplace for at least three days while the water evaporates. A variation on thisthat might speed up the drying process slightly is to leave the phone on top ofa low heat source such as a television or cable box. 2. Put the phone in a bowl of dry rice. Many people havehad success with this one, and it makes sense because uncooked rice can absorba lot of water.If still problem, please contact Nokia service dealer.

well that means you have liquid damage and you have voided your warranty on your device. Your only option is to buy a new phone or take advantage of insurance if you have it!

Sometimes you can save them by not turning it on and putting it in the hot water cuboard for couple of days, but if you have tried turning it on already... well sorry mate its got liquid damage and thats the worst thing you can do to a phone . Best advice replace it.
