Question about Motorola Mobility Rival A455 Cell Phone
My phone got wet so I dried it out and cleaned it up when I turned it on it went into slider mode but the slider wasn't open and I can't get it out of slider mode now so using it is practically impossible because it won't go to sleep or power down to conserve the battery
You have a short from getting it wet. You need to make sure it is completely dry before powering it on and do a factory reboot on it.

SOURCE: motorola v3c got washed
I have washed mine twice. Just take the battery and the sim card out and place it in front of a hairdryer with the phone open for about two hours and leave it on a heat vent for a day. Replace sim & battery and plug it into the wall charger because likely the battery was shorted and drained...but they will come back. I think some battery materials like to be fully charged and then fully drained...so try to do that for the next few days this will help the battery life return to as normal as possible. Though battery replacement may be necessary.

When a phone goes into bootloader mode, Most of the time there is a software problem. You will have to take it to a cell phone repair place to have the software reloaded. Also sometimes this happens when the unit gets wet.

try this :
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.

It's to do with the battery connection... clean the metal contact with something dry, like a cotton bud..then put the battery back in firmly,and make sure the cover is clicked back correctly...
