Water damage phone start-up failed.

I dropped my N95 (origional silver) in a bit of water, I got it out in a split second, but thats all it took. The phone switches on, vibrates , shows nokia sign and then sticks to a white screen with the message phone start-up failed. Cotact the retailer. Ive tried *+3+green+power but nothing. I can't get to the stage to do *#7780# (three network). Any suggestions or is the phone a gonner :-( any tips appreciated.

First you do rong !!!
Never switch on any electronique object after drp in water, it's causing a short-circuit and damage all the composant because water is not esolite electricite.

Now the solution and maybe it's not the solution after your phone given you the message "CONTACT THE RETRAILER), maybe your phone well not work again. but never lose a hops.

ok, you have to open your phone and isolate eatche companent, take the motherbord and clean it with a spirit water (not water!!) it's kind of chimical solution that he can absorve all the water from the object that you clean.

wait for a moment and close your phone again, but befor switche it on you have to charge well the battery.

you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

Water damage in nokia n95


Hey, Matthew here, First thing you should have done is to take out the battary. Leave the phone to dry for 2-3 days. If this still does not work you can get some "dipping alcohol". Still with out the battery dip it into it for about 15-20seconds and leave to dry for about a day- this should work if you took out the bat but might still work even if you didn't. Hope this helps. Matt. PS you can get the alcohol in a harware store or the likes:) Please rate me
