Kiss it good by. It has an internal battery so anything that battery runs is probably shorted out.

My g1 fell in the toilet and i just got a new one with my insurance yesterday cus the old one broke now this new one fell in the toilet i blowdried it for an hour but it still wont work please tell me some...


Stop putting the battery in and in fact take it out for a few days. You need silica gel packets or some other dessicant. Uncooked wric in a ziplock bag can also work but a stronger dessicant will work better.

Blow dryers are also bad as they can melt the glue on the circuit boards. So stop doing that.

My sidekick lx 2009 got water damage, and now it


Let it DRY up! Remove the battery and let it sit, open, for several hours, if not days. It needs to dry up completely before it can operate again, if you're lucky. My wife dropped hers in the toilet, but quickly did what I suggest, and the phone was fine the following day.

I dropped my sidekick 2008 in the toilet


really the only thing to do in this case is to let it dry COMPLETELY before putting any power to it. if you let it dry completely now it may still work but if you tried it already and it failed i doubt it. try a new battery if it wont turn on. i dropped my nokia in the toilet and let it dry for 3 days then it worked; had a buddy spill his bottle of beer on my blackberry and after the defrost and over night it worked fine.... good luck

Got my sidekick 2008 wet & now screen wont work


Hello xxlucygoosie,

First off you did the right thing, however you need to leave it for more than just a night, more like 48 hours at least,add a good amount of rice.

Replacing the screen likely would not work as you probably have damaged more than just the screen(the main board) when you tried to turn it on if there was any water in it then you shorted it out.

You will have to replace the phone if you can not dry it out more and it works on some miracle.

Sorry for your misfortune, and thank you for trying Fixya!

Sidekick 2008 got wet


I dropped a phone in the toilet once, a T-mobile phone. it took a couple of days for it to dry out completely. Then I snapped it back together, and it was fine. Being that yours just got wet, and not immersed is different though, so you may want to take it into T-mobile and see if they can check it out for you because then you will know for sure what is going on. Good luck.

Sidekick


you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried
