Question about Samsung Propel A767 Cell Phone

1 Answer

Dropped in the toilet..any ideas on how to bring it back to life?

I had my propel for a day and then it took a tumble into the toilet ... i took the battery out, tried to get the water out, and then blow dried it with a hair drier for 20 minutes. after that didn't work, i put it in the freezer for a day and overnight, then took it out and let it come back to room temperature. i've tried it once a day since then, and every time it stays black and lifeless. i've already checked if the battery is okay--i put it in my brother's propel and his worked fine. the sim card is also undamaged--i'm using it in my old phone. it's been out on the windowsill in my parents bedroom for 5 days now, and it still isn't working. can somebody please please please please please help me??? i am in absolute love with this phone and i don't want to have to use my old one another day. any ideas would be greatly appreciated :) thanks so much!

Hi there.... I have had many cell phones that have got wet and stopped working and every time I had to take out the battery and sim card, lay on side for at least 12 to 24 hours and they all came back to life. I don't think the freezer is the best idea.

That has always worked for me. Did you call customer/tech support for your carrier?

Every 15 minutes toilet float makes noise as if going to flush then goes away and makes noise every 15 minutes for about 10 seconds as if it is going to flush but does not and returns to silence but does...

The toilet flapper valve is slowly leaking. When the water level drops sufficiently this opens the fill valve to bring the level back up. This is all controlled by the ball float. A simple solution is to buy a new toilet flapper valve for your brand of toilet.

Dropped my phone in the toilet and doesn't stay on now

Hey, it happens! Next time though, find a bottle of alcohol, remove the battery, and soak the phone in a bowl of rubbing alcohol for a few minutes. If alcohol isn't available, sink it in a bowl of water until you can find the alcohol- Bring it out of the alcohol, THEN break out the rice, etc.
I'd guess the logic switches are compromised, preventing the turn-off.

My samsung SGH X 820 got dropped and wet. now nt working .any service centre can set it right for me.

thats exactly what happened to me, so i literally hairdryed it for half an hour. It still didn't work, so i left it near a heater, so it could fully dry, and if you leave it for a day or so it should work.
i dropped mine in the toilet.. so this probably gives you some hope.

If it doesn't work, i'd bring it back to a service centre.
Hope this helps.
