1. If dropped in water, 90% chance main chips got shorted out.
2. You can attempt back up if pc will even SEE it which isn't likely
3. Back up weekly
4. Export to SD weekly

Its been dropped in water and the 2 white tabs turned pink. Nothing works now and its only 2 weeks old.


Sadly. there is very little anyone can do when it comes to moisture damage.
First try by removing the back cover, battery & simcard. and placing it in the top of a hot press as to let water evaporate.
Otherwise as a long shot bring it into a phone repair centre. more than likely they will not be able to help but you never know!
dan,
PS sorry about your phone

My Samsung Alias wont completely start up!


I'm very sorry to say your phone is not going to work again. It has clearly been damaged from sitting 4 ft under water for over an hour.

The phone was on, you dropped it and the water found its way inside and shorted it out. It's a miracle that it is able to turn on at all.

The rice method does work if your phone got splashed with water or fell in water and was taken out promptly.

Sorry about your misfortune, you will need to replace your phone. Thank you for trying Fixya!

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.
