Question about Cell Phones
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.
