Dropped camcorder in sink full of water

My toddler dropped my camcorder into the sink full of water, I snagged it up immediately, and tried to dry it out. The battery charge indicator light will come on, but thats it. Is it possible it will dry out and magically start working again, like my cell phone has numerous times??? Or would it be worth or even possible to repair it?

If the phone got wet it will probably not work anymore. You might try tossing it in a bag of rice to dry it out completely. But in most cases, dropping the phone in water will ruin it.

If it was dropped in water ,it must've fried the power chip.This Can Not Be fixed with a hair dryer...if you take it down to a computer repair shop they coul replace the chip for a price of around $400 (depend whether other parts or circuits have been harmed) I've done this before on my t100 and I spent at least $500 for the chip and the LCD screen.

You may have done permanent damage by putting the battery back in too soon. Remove the battery and put the phone in a warm dry place and leave it for week to dry out internally. Maybe it will work after that but you're most likely looking at having to replace it.

Dropped my phone in sink of water


You may have caused a short in the device. Basically once your cellphone is exposed to water, the best solution would be to IMMEDIATELY remove the battery, and place the device in a bowl of rice. The rice serves to absorb the moisture, and within a day, should restore your phone :D.

It doesn't hurt to take it apart and dry it by hand though, but by trying to use a non-dry phone you may have to get a new one.

Cell phone will not turn on when only using battery power


Have you tried leaving it over night plugged and on and see if that helps? If u pulled it out of the water quickly, that might do the trick.
