It fell in the toliet


well this is a long shot but lets try it..

1.) remove the battery and open up the phone
2.) separate screen circuit boats keypads etc.
3.) use a hair dryers and dry it as best as you can
4.) fill a large bowl with a little rice, place the parts in them and cover it with more rice (the rice draws out the moisture thats the logical reason for it)
5.) leave over night,
6.) dry with hair dryer again in the morning, let cool and reassemble..

hopefully it will work.. (depends on if the circuit board was shorted out or not, it it was its dead, if it wasn't well it will be working now)

ps dont forget to rate this if you found it helpful so it can be of help to others.

My lg neon phone fell in the toilet


dont turn it on, motherboard need to be cleaned in the isopropanol, if you dont have it just let it dry (put it into the cup with rice for few days) DONT TURN IT ON (at least for 5 days if you not sure if its dry) Use hair dryer from long distance to dry it. Even if you think that phone is dry it will be still wet. Your battery can be dead as well as screen. But if you are lucky it will work.

My phone fell into the toilet and I need to fix it


First thing is to ALWAYS remove the battery to prevent electrolysis.

Clean with de-ionized water (distilled) with battery removed.

LET dry thoroughly for a day or more before putting battery back in for trial.

Do not heat the unit to dry more than placing over a furnace register for slow gentle drying.

Switch off the phone as soon as possible. Allow it to dry else the circuits will be affected. Check if it works tomorrow, if it doesn't you might need professional help. Some components will require change.

I dropped my sidekick 2008 in the toilet


really the only thing to do in this case is to let it dry COMPLETELY before putting any power to it. if you let it dry completely now it may still work but if you tried it already and it failed i doubt it. try a new battery if it wont turn on. i dropped my nokia in the toilet and let it dry for 3 days then it worked; had a buddy spill his bottle of beer on my blackberry and after the defrost and over night it worked fine.... good luck

I dropped it down the toilet now it just wont work.


There is a possibility of it working again but water damage does alot of damaging things to phones. The best solution is to take the battery out and don't use it or try to charge it for a few days. Let it completely dry out and it might work but chances are slim. No matter what you hear or read do not place it in the oven, dry it with a hair dryer or even place it in rice. Those things will actually cause more damage to your phone.

Nokia N70 fell in the toilet


To help drying out the phone, I suggest taking the phone apart. (i.e. battery, sim card, back cover, etc) putting it all into a container of rice, Use a container that you can put a lid on. Let the phone set in the rice for a couple of days. The uncooked rice will draw the moisture out of the equipment. This will dry it out, but whether or not it shorted the unit out is your next step.
