Yeah i dropped my razr in a sink of water and it messed up for a while then i let it dry for a few days and it works now and the only thing that doesnt is the Keypad or the side volume and recorder and camera button. but today i was hitting all the buttons and one worked then it quit. Should i just give it time to dry or ditch it and get a new phone. When i push any buttons there is a click sound, and all the buttons light up.
Sounds like you did as such as you could do. Sometimes the water has chemical or minerals that deposit in the electronics not to mention corrosion setting up and sometime water is trapped in tight places thru capilary action. You might try the hair dryer again. Try some electronics cleaner from radioshack. I would just buy a new one after all that.
Well what i can do if you want it is probably broken but if you tke the sim card out and put it in a jiffy bag and send it to me i will take a look ok ?!? i bet your thinking i sound a bit dodgy but im not i do this all year round for free ! anyways e-mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org thankyou !

you need to dry this guy out... pull the battery and leave out... that will minimize electronic damage... if at all possible. Purchase a container of silica crystals at a nearby hobby/crafts supply store (used to dry flowers). put the phone and the open container of silica into a ziploc bag and let it draw the moisture out of your phone. let it be for a few days... No guarantees, but it could get you back up again. K
I don't know if this will work for sure but when that happened to be a few days ago my keys didn't work either but i took my Battery out and dried them both off for 2 minutes on warm and cold and cool if that doesnt work i don't know what to tell you
It sounds like the most common issue I see with cellular phones today, liquid damage, the handset needs to be dried out completely for there to be any chance of success, use gently dry moving air flowing over and around the phone for several hours and clean any place you see corrosion with 99.9% rubbing alcohol and a medium tooth brush and dry again for a good long time, this may solve your problem but it may also be too late, remember if your phone gets even one drop of water in it it can be totally destroyed! Cheers!
There is a good chance that the phone will work once dried...but make sure it is totally dry (try to absord all water ad give it a few days to dry out) before attempting to turn on. If you take it part and dry out the parts...even better.
I would definately let it dry out fully. Take the battery out and take it apart as much as you can and place in front of a fan (probably overnight). If there was water in the phone when you plugged it in it could permanently damage the phone. Even though the outside is dry, there could still be some water inside. I once had a remote control in a swimming pool overnight and followed these instructions and it worked fine after a couple days of drying. Hope this helps!
I have the same problem. Was not dropped or water damage to my knowledge. Just the red button works. When I open it, though, it shows the asteriks key as being pressed which is under the #7 key. Any help would be greatly appeciated.
