Bad news! Sorry but electronics and water (vodka n coke) don't mix well, even just a little. Even if you removed the battery immediately, and let it dry over night, it probably still wouldn't work again. Even if it does come on the coke would make the keys and switches lock up. Sorry.

Possible that the water has seeped in and if the battery is within the unit then it could have caused damage to the mobile hardware.

Spilled vodka on my phone (LG Shine). Diddnt get too wet. The little whit sticker is still white so apparently it did not get to wet. Now the phone will turn on, show the AT&T logo, and then turn off....


The next solution is about water damage , just try it for your problem :
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.
rate if useful please !

Water leak at filter


You probably will have to replace the water filter housing that holds the water filter. This is an relatively easy job and should only take about 30 min. The housing will cost around $40-$50 online or from your appliance store. Turn off the water to the fridge. Take the top shelf out of the fridge to access the water filter area. There is a small screw in a really deep hole on the bottom of the cover, just to the right of the filter cup. I used a really small socket (9/32",1/4" or 9mm - can't remember) and extention. Take out the screw which will uncover the housing. The water hoses (white) just slip onto the housing - check these to verify if they are on tight. If they are loose this is the water leak. if they are on tight (which I'm sure they are) then proceed. Take off the filter cup which is screwed onto the housing. Remember "righty tighty - lefty loosy". Take another small screw (maybe two) out which holds the housing to the refrigerator. Now pull the water hoses off the housing. This is kinda tuff because the hoses are just slid on to the housing and are held on by friction only and its hard to get a good grasp because of the location of the unit. You can't really stick much under the hoses to pry them off either because if you damage them, they won't hold the seal later. Just pull and twist and they should come off. Visually inspect the housing unit, you should be able to see a crack if there is one. Replace if necessary. Just make sure not to overtighten the screws and especially the filter cup when reinstalling. Good luck and I hope this helps.

I dropped my nikon L3 in the water and now it doesn't work...only 1 year old and only briefly in the water ..any suggestions or is it not worth trying to fix..Its a coolpix L3


i had a cell phone and i wore it out completely, i dropped it ALL THE TIME, i would accidentally leave it out in the rain, i would accidentally have it go through the washer and dryer, and yes i did have it dropped in water completely also!! it was my first phone but it wasnt that long ago, like a year and a half ago. everyone i asked what to do about would say that RIGHT AFTER IT HAPPENS to blow it with a blowdryer and dont try to turn it on, just leave it to dry. and thank god but everytime it would come back on and work everytime. i did have alot of trouble after a while of its damage though, like when i would go to turn it back on after it being in water it would vibrate uncontrollably, it would take over a minute to turn it on and the battery would run out very fast!!!

i hope i gave you some good info. but who knows it could be too late or the blowdryer could possibly not let it work again!! sorry!!

Lost Cup


The measuring cup for my Rival RC100 holds 6 oz (volume of water to the top rim). The markings on the inside of the pot (1 through 5) seem to hold about 12 oz each.
(that is: the 1 line holds 12.2 oz, the 5 line held 57 ounces of water)
close enough to the standard 2 to 1 water to rice ratio.
I put in about 1.7X as much water (by volume) as brown rice, and it comes out very good for me. (1 cup rice to 1 3/4cup water).

Hi Tc77,

Your camera can be fixed but it will be expensive to change the lcd screen your best bet is to buy a new camera as with a new camera your can get accidental damage cover so if anything like this happens you now the camera can be fix or replaced this is just a suggestion of option.
