Question about LG VOYAGER VX10000 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Water damage and no signal

My lg voyager got slightly wet a few days ago. i tried to dry it as best i could. At first the screen was all messed up but after a couple of hours the keyboard and touchscreen were functioning normally but the phone says searching for signal. what can i do about it. is there any way to repair it. I do not have insurance and obviously verizon will not change because water damage sticker has now turned. I don't think it is the battery because I tried with another battery and it works the same. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

As we all know, water, is a good conductor. When a chipset is wet, the circuits are shorted so when you applied power, it will definetely damage the board. Best thing to do if a device is wet, just hang it dry for 3 days. open the battery compartment and remove the battery. never switch it on. after three days, check if it is completely dry. then try the unit again. blowering the device with too much heat could also damage the board.

Unfortunately, it sounds like you have damaged the phone. Most likely a wire has been knocked loose or a component was broken. It may be time to look for a replacement. A good seller that I've seen on eBay is Sick Frog Wireless.

Good luck!

Remove the battery and the sim card and leave it in a warm place (not on top of a radiator) for a few days.

(If it is possible to open the case without doing any damage, then this would speed up the drying process

You can buy a new water proof touch screen online and you will be able to go to a Verison store and have them install it for you. Also put the phone in a zip-lock bag full of uncooked rice for several weeks. Make sure the battery and phone are in the bag seperately.

LG RUMOR went through washing machine!


You should buy a new phone, 90 percent of the time the screen shorts out when it gets wet. These phones are terrible, i would take advantage of having to get a new phone and get something completely different.
