First remove the battery or power from the radio. DO not try to turn it on again until you follow this solution....I'd gently open my radio to allow any excess fluid to drain out on a paper towel or cardboard box. Be PATIENT,,,it might take a couple days to dry depending on your enviroment. You can use a hair dryer on "low" heat being careful not to get to close to anything that might melt...low heat is best or just let your radio dry out it's self. When your confident it;s REALLY dry try to apply the power again...you would be amazed but it just might work good as new if you have the patients to completely dry it out,,,best wished, RadioWidgets

Garmin nuvi 1350 got wet


Liquid and electronics don't mix. You can cause more damage leaving the power applied to the unit when it is wet. Water is conductive due to the metals found in water. This can short out components and damage them.

Electronics that get wet need to be taken apart right away and washed in a 90% alcohol bath and blown dry with compressed air. The alcohol displaces the water and will dry on its own. The compressed air helps speed up the drying process and blow out any residue in hard to reach places or under parts.

If the unit is allowed to dry without being cleaned, a white residue will form around components and the residue can short out connections.

There are some parts that can't be recovered due to getting wet, like LCD displays, batteries and speakers.

I would suggest taking the unit to a professional to have it looked over. There are some places that won't work on water damaged electronics because even if you can revive them, there is no guarantee they won't die tomorrow and many places will not offer a warranty on water damaged unit.

Dropped in water


I got my i870 from my sister a week ago, i got it for boost mobile but the ear speaker doesnt work either, i took it apart and i ordered the flip part of the phone which comes with the whole top section. It should work after i put the new part. it was only $26 off of ebay. the parts were only held up five screws. really easy but you have to be careful and gentle.

Vertex radio vx 10


Maybe with the drop the radio speake is out of place, did try to open the radio and find if the speaker is in its correct place? The speaker uses a spring connector and this can be out of place. Good luck
