Submerged my vx8300 phone in water

Ok last night i accidently dropped my vx8300 phone into the toilet,I then immediately reached in and pulled it out.i looked at it and it seemed to be working fine i then forgot about the phone and started to wash my hands for about 5 minutes.i then looked back at my phone and it was turned off ,i turned it back on and the screen was white.It immmediately turned itself back off.
I let it set overnight in my window sill but it is december and night time so i dought that helped any.the next day i put it in front of an electric heater for a couple of hours.i then tryed to turn it back on and the screen was not white anymore it just displayed the use genuine battery error.i tried this about 3 or 4 times through out the day
The moisture indicator on my phone is just a light pink and not that bad but the one on the battery is a full dark pink.I tried a new battery and the same thing happened.
I plan on trying the alcohol bath tomorrow then putting it back in front of the heater and try a new battery,Is there any other suggestions i should try to get my phone working

this is my third phone and my dad will not be happy with me when he finds out what happened

This oes look serious and there is really a very small chance that the phone would be able to work after veing in the water and recovering after such a long time This might just not help  but seeing the condiion  you might also try to wipe off any water in the battery panel use a ear bud to do so you might see a few drops of water .  clean them up Maybe the phone would start working also keeping the phone in front of the heater is not a good idea if the heater is giving out a  lot of heat electronics dont respond well to heat try putting the phone below a Lamp or something they give decent heat
hopefully your phone would be up and running in the next few days.

Samsung will not turn on


pull out the battery and leave it out until you are 100% all water inside has dried out.. its not the water itself that does the most damages to the phone. but the power jumping from points to points on the microchips and traces causing erosion by electrolysis and damage by shorting.

the worst thing you can do is putting the battery back in too soon

if its very contaminated water (salty,chemicals.dirt etc.) this wont work tho. since the contaminations will short the phone out

Phone not charging.
Hello, when a phone does not charge, it means that the phone charger or the port at which the charger is inserted in the phone is faulty.

Might be due to dust or dirt. You can Clean charging port on the phone with a brush and alcohol to remove dirt.

After cleaning it,if still not charging, you can test charger with another phone to be sure if the charger is working. And if charger works with another phone,that means the charging port on the phone is faulty and will need to replaced.

Take care.

I dropped my lg dare in the toilet. it was on and i couldn't take the battery out. that was last night and now i finally managed to take the battery out so it's out drying in the sun. what should i do for...


To get the *best* chance of having your phone (especially a touch screen) to work after being submerged in water, you need PATIENCE.

Generally, the phone doesnt die when it first goes in the water. It usually dies when the user tries to start the phone too soon, before it's dried out.

The fastest drying method i've seen is to get a small tupperware (sealable) container, and completely submerge the phone in white dry rice. Seal the container, separate the battery, take off the cover, and get as much exposure to the rice as you can.

The rice keeps the air dry inside the container, and will pull moisture out of the phone faster than air drying. Leave it there for at least 2 days. At least 2. Hope that helps!

PS - You will *probably* need a new battery, generally batteries are damaged by even a small amount of moisture. You might as well buy a new battery.

Water level drops in bowl after it fills


If very little water is used on initial flush, The bowl is functioning as a tank for second thorough flush. The high water level cannot stay high in the bowl while in motion or you would have a mess ion start and stops.

Dropped in water


you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

Water level drops in bowl after it fills


Replace your stopper at the bottom of the tank. While you do hat you should also just go ahead and replace the float. 25 dollars for everything and 10 minute worth of your time
