Don't have a soulution if you don't want to go to the provider. Enless the dot that is on the back behide your battery isn't red then you don't have water damage some things just happen. If it isn't i would take it in seeming you just got it.

Hi,

Follow these procedure to save or revive your phone, remove Cell Phone from Water: Time is of the essence when it comes to saving a fixing a submerged cell phone, as soon as you see your phone in water, remove it quickly! Every second matters do this step quick.

Saving the Battery: In order to save the battery on your cell phone after it's been wet, quickly take the battery out of the phone as soon as you take it out of the water. Buy doing this you will ensure that minimal damage is done to your battery.

Drying the Phone Out: Quickly shake your cell phone to get all of the water out and reach for the paper towels. Press down on your cell phone to make sure all of the excess water has come out. If you have accessories such as cell phone covers, take them off promptly otherwise water will still be stuck in your phone.

Saving your Info: If your cell phone takes a SIM card, quickly remove it before the phone dries. While you may still loose some of your information, you won't lose it all if you take the SIM card out of your cell phone in time

.Removing Excess Moisture: To remove the unseen moisture in your cell phone you will need to cover it with either Desiccant gel packs or rice. Desiccant gel packs can sometimes be found when purchasing brand new shoes or clothes. Make sure your cell phone is completely covered with either one of these for up to 3 hours.

Vacuuming: Take your vacuum hose and place it up to 4 inches away from your cell phone with it on. While this won't remove all of the water, it will certainly eliminate the big spots of water damage.

Turing the Phone On: After allowing your cell phone to sit a day or two with the power off, turn it on to see if it works. More than likely if you followed these steps as soon as your phone was submerged, it will cut on. If not, you will have to purchase a new cell phone because the one you have can't be saved.

Take care.

Blackberry curve got slightly wet, now cant turn on


Hello

Problem was when you got it wet, you did not let it dry long enough. Reason I say this is because when you tried to operate the phone again it shorted out.

Typically it takes about 48 hours to dry completely. The best way is to separate the battery and phone, put them in a bowl of rice and close it up for 48 hours. The dry rice will draw out every bit of moisture.

You really can't do much to fix it. Paying an expert to look at it find the damaged parts and replace them would cost many times over that of replacing it.

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.

How Do i Fix The Sidekick2008 Hardware Problem


I'm sorry to say it is probably to late, even a little wet is still more than it should be. You should have removed the battery first thing, then let everything dry completely.

If even the least bit of water found it's way inside, and you were still using it(even just powered on), your cell could short out or cause hardware damage.

You can try taking the battery out, and placing the phone and battery inside a bowl with some rice..close it up...wait at least a full day to pull out any water that may be inside. May be to late for that to work tho.

Sorry to hear about your luck, thank you for trying Fixya!

Dark spot on the screen


Sounds like the screen burned out. Any water damage? Check the sticker on the phone (white box near battery) if not. Call your cellular provider and get the phone replaced.

Water Damage


Take the battery out, disassemble it, take every piece out, and clean them off with Deionized water, don't be afraid to get them wet again. Once you have cleaned them good, let them air dry for several days. Reassemble the phone and hope for the best! You will have about a 50/50 shot at not having any damage to the phone.

Hope this helps!

T-mobile dash wont turn on


In my experience when getting a phone wet your only choice is to let it sit. It could take a few days or a month but soon or later they usually fire back up.

Wet dash


There's still water in it. You'll need to take the battery out and let it dry another two days. I got my phone wet one time and it took a week before it worked again.
