Question about Cell Phones
It only got water in the battery when i took it off there was a lot of water in the back which had been there for about 5 hours. it has the red dot but the screen is not foggy. ive tried blow drying it and resetting it nothing works. when you turn it on it says verizon wireless for 10 seconds turns black for a sec then does this over and over. what can i do?
Try to let the phone dry out by itself, set it on the window sill let it dry out for a little while, a lot of times water still gets down (internally) inside the phone, so it looks dry on the outside but it's still wet on the inside of the internal components. Try to let it dry out for a couple hours in the sunlight, caution, though, don't let the screen sit with direct sunlight bearing down on it.
I would caution on using the blowdryer, too hot of a setting can damage the internal components, so use the lowest setting possible. you can also try a low suction vacuum cleaner, also...
Immediately take the battery out, and leave it out, water and electrical components don't mix.
Take out the sim card and attempt to dry it, just be careful with it because it's sensitive.
Let it sit next to a low heat source for a couple of days, periodically checking up on it. But I would'nt try to power it back up until you are confident that all the water is gone and evaporated out of the phone, otherwise you could fry the internal circuits and damage your phone.
