Either you dropped an Ipod or a PDA RX3115, but in both cases the device has water damage.

It requires to open it and check it to evaluate if it can be completely cleaned.

When the devices are wet and there is enough battery current, there is corrosion due to chemical reaction with copper, so sometimes the damage cannot be avoided, causing that the main board is completely damaged.

It requires some tools and experience to do it. If you are familiar with fixing electronics, you can try it. Otherwise, I do recommend you to get a technician in checking your device.

Best regards,

I dropped my year-old Q9c in an unmentionable reservoir of water, pulled it out instantly, gave it a very quick rinse. It worked normally for several hours, then the screen went black, but the phone still...


You need to try Silica Gel Packets to dry out your phone. There was a good article on associatedcontent.com that explains how to dry a wet cell phone, iPods, or any electronics.

You need to place your cell phone in a zip lock bag with Silica Gel Packets. Silica Gel will remove all the moisture from the phone and its components, something air drying will not do!

Just Google "Silica Gel Packets" and you will find several companies selling these products. There is also a web site called: http://www.SilicaGelPackets.com that has them.

My sony mylo com-2 fell in the water


Try this before you get it to the service :
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.

How do i fix my phone that i dropped in water without going to a shop?


Unfortunately, water and electronic devise don't mix.
You can try placing your phone in a plastic bag with uncooked white rice and let it sit for about a week.
then maybe it will dry out and you can try another battery.
Your battery is almost certainly toast.
Try a new battery and Pray it comes on.
If not, Buy a new phone, water damage is very hard to fix.

If this helps please leave me a vote

Blackberry Pearl will not turn on but light keeps blinking red


Do not turn on the phone again before taking out all trapped moisture. Take out the battery, sim card, etc. You will need to wrap each piece in newspaper, the phone and battery and then put in a rice container and wait at least 24 hrs. The newspaper and rice will eventually absorb the moisture. I hope this helps!
