How do i fix my phone that has drop in water


One proven method of removing moisture is by putting your phone in a baggie of rice. The rice will absorb the moisture and not damage your phone.Leave it in there for about 48hrs. This method may not work if your phone has already been too severely damaged.

My iphone 4 drop in my dishwater with bleach will it dry out and work again


Dropping a switched on cell phone into bleached water will certainly damage the electronics in the cell phone.
You can remove the battery and dry it out, but most likely it is damaged beyond repair.

White screen


did you drop it in water, ?did you press the screen to hard and cracked the lcd panel? those are the most common reasons, oh, and dropping it, and also dropping it in water. I would suggest going over all those possibilities.. open up the back of your phone and pull out the battery, in all phones now they have a water sensor dot, it remains white always unless the phone was damaged by water, and warranty doesnt cover water damage, look for that little white dot, if its red, that means you gotta get a new phone, and if you try peeling if off theyll know youre covering up water damage, unless you were able to somehow obtain another white color changing dot to put back in your phone now in the exact place it should be, but techs are very good at catching bluffs. but if that white is intact to begin with, your phone should be under warrenty of some sort, and that means they owe you a new one. bottom line. BOOM

My touch screen doesn't work!!! I've never ever dropped it in water, it litterally has ZERO water damage. And allthough I've dropped it, it has never been through any serious accidents. But yesterday my...


Pull the battery and put it back. Best bet is if you're within buyers remorse period get it replaced if your device was purchased new you should have 1 year manufacturer warranty that will cover frozen screen as long as no water damage or noticeable physical damage.

I dropped my phone in tea, the phone still works but you cannot see anything on the display screen. Is there something I can do to fix it. Sony Ericsson Walkman W350a.


Short answer: No. Long answer: Your phone has water damage. Warranty is void if your phone has water damage. Since you KNOW you've dropped it in tea, you should consider it a lost cause and move on. For others - if you do something similar (dropped in water): Immediately turn it off. Take the battery out, then proceed to completely dismantle the whole phone. I have in the past used kleenex paper to tuck into places I can't dismantle, to get the water out, but they usually say to dismantle it, then let it completely air dry. It may take a week. If it, after it's completely dry, still works, then maybe you got lucky, and maybe it'll start acting up in a while, problem by problem as the electronics corrode inside the phone. I have heard of phones surviving water damage with only minor problems, but it's rare.

Cell phone dropped in water - red dot showing - options?


you don't need to actually drop your phone in water for there to be water damage.
simple things like having your phone in the rain, in the bathroom while you shower, around a hot tub, or possibly even if it's really humid outside can set this water damage sensor off.
it just gives phone companies more ways to void your warranty.

hope this helped.
