Went swimming (less than 30 seconds) with phone 6 months ago. Removed battery and dryed out phone. Purchased new battery and phone has worked for last 6 months. Today when I turned it on, nothing happened. I put it on charger and it charges and says battery charged, but phone will not turn on. Any thoughts, besides not swimming with the phone?

Yes there is a reset. After you have opened the phone and let it dry a few days, put in the battery and hold the power and volume down button for about 6-10 seconds. This will then start the boot sequence.
hello,when it got damaged by dropping into water,did you try to dry up the panel before putting it on,if not that would have affected the panel and also the battery,does the phone still power on,if no,you will have to get a battery from a store or a friend who uses same kind of phone to run the test in powering it on.since the screen does not display any longer i suspect the screen is faulty or the pones flex,so you will have to get a new one the assumed estimated cost for both the screen and flex is about 30-50 dollars, please kindly rate the solution if it's helpful,
If you have only had this phone for 6 months, it should still be under warranty. Also, if you have the insurance plan for the phone from your phone company, they should honor the policy and assist you or replace it for free. My first stop would be at the place that you purchased it from. Even if they wind up charging you a small fee, it will be much less than buying a new one. I hope that this helps.
You can keep it inside the Refrigerator for 30, in the side rack where the biscuits and medicines can be kept.Most of the misture will be removed and the unit can be restored.This should be done within one hour of the incident, that is before any oxidation reaction takes place with the parts of the unit.If it is late this will be a trial.
I had this same problem and the problem actually is not with the phone. It means that the water damaged the battery. I purchased a new battery at a verizon store (because they have a 15 day return policy), popped it in and everything was hunky dory. Now I cannot say if there is any water damage to the rest of the phone, but when you are getting the error to use genuine battery, it is because that one is now damaged. New battery costs about 30 to 40 dollors
