I helped a friend with a similar problem using the solution below, so I am sure it will work unless your phone has shorted out:

  • Remove the battery from the phone immediately -- preferably right after it had gotten wet.

  • Spray the phone liberally through the keypad and inside the battery compartment with a good brand of electronic cleaner such as "CRC QD Electronic Cleaner Quick Drying Formula". It is important for the cleaner to get into the phone to wash out any water and mineral residues as they can cause a short when you put the batteries back into the phone.

  • Allow it to drain and dry, or better, blow dry it with hairdryer set on cold, or turn upside down on your dashboard for a few hours. Do NOT put the batteries back in the phone while it is drying.

  • When your phone is completely dry, put battery back in and turn it on. If it does not come on, put it on the charger. You should see the indicator come on showing "Charging".

  • After a few minutes to a half an hour, try turning your phone on. It should work if nothing has shorted.

My phone got damp in snow today, screen is black. I plugged it in to charge and on screen it shows C3590, goes off then shows a picture of a battery. It did not get very damp and battery was fully charged...


It sounds like it is damp inside. It needs to dry for several days with the power and charger off.

One popular method is:
Remove the battery from the phone, if possible, or at least turn the phone off. ...
  1. Disassemble the device, if possible. ...
  2. Blow compressed air on the device to remove as much water as possible. ...
  3. Fill a container three-quarters full with dry, uncooked rice.

Wet cell phone-blank screen


Well it depends on the type of screen you have in the phone. Some have edges that can split open and lose the fluid that projects the picture so your best bet is to just replace the phones screen, if every thing else works fine

NOKIA N95 BLANK SCREEN


It must be a connection problem, to the LCD, or the light is not working.
Can only be sorted by looking at it really.
Back to Telstra I'm afraid. If it's new let them sort it out, if it's not try a reset take the sim card out first then input this code *#7780# (Best to use this code as a last resort)
Give it time to work.
