I dropped my phone and it could not on now


Due to hazard some phones are not working. If you dropped in water try with this steps.
  • Use cotton swabs to soak up water in crevices and on any fragile, exposed circuits. If you have dropped your cell phone in water, it is also helpful to disassemble it if you can and let all the parts dry separately.
  • If the phone will turn on, you can try to make a call to be sure it is working properly. If you put your water damaged cell phone back together and it won't turn on, it is likely that some water has gotten down inside the phone.
If dropped in floor, please bring it to service center for repair.

Okay heres what you do guys!!! Just happened to me today and I fixed it. Mine was at the bottom of a hottub for 2 days XD.

The power in the phone needs to run out
then, plug the phone up
wait about 30 seconds(download screen should be up and it is charging xD.)
Then Take the battery out and unplug the charge from the phone
Stick the battery back in
Wait about 30 more seconds
Hold down the Red Phone untill it turns on.

FIXED! YAYYYYY!

I dropped my phone in tea, the phone still works but you cannot see anything on the display screen. Is there something I can do to fix it. Sony Ericsson Walkman W350a.


Short answer: No. Long answer: Your phone has water damage. Warranty is void if your phone has water damage. Since you KNOW you've dropped it in tea, you should consider it a lost cause and move on. For others - if you do something similar (dropped in water): Immediately turn it off. Take the battery out, then proceed to completely dismantle the whole phone. I have in the past used kleenex paper to tuck into places I can't dismantle, to get the water out, but they usually say to dismantle it, then let it completely air dry. It may take a week. If it, after it's completely dry, still works, then maybe you got lucky, and maybe it'll start acting up in a while, problem by problem as the electronics corrode inside the phone. I have heard of phones surviving water damage with only minor problems, but it's rare.
