Cellular Phones: Wet by accident solutions

If your phone was accidentally thrown into water or washed you need to
  1. carefully open the phone by unscrewing the back portion but remove the battery first.
  2. After opening the phone let it air dried. DO NOT expose to heat or direct sunlight. Better if you can just expose it to a open electric fan OR a hand dryer and let the air dry it for several minutes or might take longer for pure air dry let's say 3 to 5days of drying.
  3. After minutes/several days make sure all surfaces are dry, chips, case, keys etc....
  4. if the battery is working okay no need to replace but if not after all the drying better if you get a new battery don't use the old wet one.
  5. put the phone back together (make sure you put all the parts just like before). It should work now....

The phone should careful be opened and let dry for several days. The battery should also be replaced to avoid accidents. after several days let's say 1 week that it was left to dry try putting on a new battery and turn on. it should work.

Blue error fatal screen

Pop out your battery for a minute then put it back in and turn your phone on. If that doesn't work, pull out your battery and leave the phone by a heater/ac vent in your house so it dries out. It sounds like you may have gotten it too wet. If letting it dry on the vent overnight/all day doesn't fix it, you may need a new phone.

Good luck!

My son put his LG Shine through the wash. We immediately opened it up, removed the battery and dried it out as best as possible. We left on an air vent for 4 days, put in a new battery and turned it...

What you've done so far is perfect. All it needs now is more time to dry out completely.

If you can afford to do without it for that long, remove the battery again and leave the phone in a dry place. Come back to it after a couple of weeks and see how it behaves. Repeat this until it is back to normal.

After my son's KG290 went through the wash last year, it was several months before we put it back into service.

the water usually shorts out the little lcd screen. i have heard that when u drop a phone into water it discharges all battery power into the phone. in effect shocking the screen, speakers, keypad etc. best thing to do when this happens is to check if your warrenty is expired and try to get a new one. if u dont have a warrenty, open the phone completely and let all guts dry. i am now a cell expert, i dont advise anyone to open a cell phone, becauce it could result in personal injury or damage to phone. only try this if u are skilled with small devices. attempt at your own risk.

LG RUMOR went through washing machine!

You should buy a new phone, 90 percent of the time the screen shorts out when it gets wet. These phones are terrible, i would take advantage of having to get a new phone and get something completely different.
