My HTC not working

Hey, A few months ago my phone got a little bit wet when i was driving my motorcycle and my pocket was wide opened.. I waited for it to dry, then i tried to boot it and there was that red light (next to the orange charging light) and it vibrated. The boot sound came too and home, list back, and search button were white as usual but the screen wasn't working.. Is there any (around 50euros) way to fix it??

Well hope so you didn't damaged the sensors! try this : use the phone until battery is empty and switches off. then put it on the charger for 4 hours. If no joy,try different battery to make sure that device is not damaged and get a new battery.

SOURCE: g1 got wet-end button acts like it's stuck & back key doesnt work

call and get it replaced. DONT TELL them about the water. simply state it doesnt make calls and get them to send you a waranty replacement. It is free, but remember to tell them there is no damage to the phone, as long as the white dot is still white and the phone doesnt look physically damaged you are good to go

SOURCE: I have a couple of issues with this htc hd 2

Hi Amy,
It actually is an awesome phone. Here is what I suggest:
Differently WinMo 6.5 won't do, I suggest either using Windows Phone 7 or Google Android. I personally prefer Android. There is a great site that will help you in getting Android or Windows Phone 7 on your HD2:
Just be weary that there is always risking when modifying your mobile. You will your warranty if you have one but in my opinion you will love the Android experience on your mobile.

SOURCE: htc fell in water retrieved

Welcome to Fixya

This means that there is something sticking on the simcard bay. That is the reason why you are getting the error when you put in the simcard. This cause by water moisture or any foreign object went inside the phone. You might need to take apart the phone and blow compressed air to the board. Firmware/software reinstallation might be needed also. You might need assistance from phone tech if you are not aware on how to open the phone.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Dropped htc windows phone in water any tips

Turn it off and remove the battery pronto. Next, fill a zip-lock bag with rice. Lay the bag down flat and set the phone inside the bag, resting on top of the rice. Seal the bag, and leave it that way for two days. The rice will absorb the moisture in the phone, and if you're lucky, it'll be completely fine.

Yes there is a reset. After you have opened the phone and let it dry a few days, put in the battery and hold the power and volume down button for about 6-10 seconds. This will then start the boot sequence.

Wet G1 Tmobile htc fell in water a while ago

Don't turn it on until it's dry again.
Maybe it could work again.
If not, you'll need to take to a cell phone fix place.

Touch screen has stopped working and phone sometimes locks up :(

That happened to me and my htc touch hd the other day. I tuned it off, pulled the battery out and let it dry out completely. The touch screen didn't work until a few hours later. However when water happens to an electronic device it usually will need to be replaced. Just cross your fingers and hope for the best.

Phone got wet, still turns on, works, but seems that power button

If the phone just got a little wet, you better remove the battery and blow dry thru' all the vents in the phone. Wait for atleast an hour and blow dry again. Now connect the battery and test it. If it still turns on automatically, the water is out of your reach and the phone HAS to be opened to dry properly. Please donot work with in this condition or you could lose your phone.

Samsung G600 - phone asks for sim card but doesnt work when inser

when phones get wet they start to rust from the inside, unfourtunaly this is a long prosses and can take a few months but usually if the phone has got very wet they will not work propley again. they may work temperally but eventually it will probably be completly usless. in future if u wet a phone try drying it immediatly with a hairdryer, inside the battery bit too, this may help the water inside the phone not to cause rusting. sorry about your phone.
