Phone fell in puddle

Hi,
My phone fell into a puddle. I immediately picked it up and wiped it off. It seemed to work fine. A few hours later when I went to use it was completely dead. Yikes - what do I need to do. Thanks

Sadly I think it is too late to help. If it had water inside, that probably shorted it out. However, in the future, you should take the battery out as soon as possible to prevent this.

If you want to try something, just let it dry completely and then try using it again. I doubt that this will do anything, but it might end up working.

My Samsung mobile is dead after it slipped and fell momentarily in water. What could be the possible cause ???


do not turn it on while it's wet. place the phone in a bowl of rice which should **** out all of the moisture after leaving it there for a few hours. wipe off any additional moisture u can as well. then attempt to restart the phone.

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.

After water damage my touch screen for my quickfire wont work!


Put it in a ziplock bag of uncooked rice for several weeks. And make sure the battery is out of it. So put in the battery and phone but they should be apart.

I dropped my LG enV into a puddle of water.


Sounds like you will need a new battery. My env2 would only work if plugged into the wall charger after I dropped it in the toilet. I got a new battery and it works fine now!

CDM-8915 PHONE IS DEAD!


The solution: I left it alone for 24 hours.
Here's what I did:
I plugged the charger in and allowed it to charge overnight. No lights or screen or screen appeared but I kept it in anyway. After charging, I removed the battery and cleaned all the contacts with Isopropyl rubbing alcohol. When I reinserted the battery, it vibrated intensely, which indicated a strong battery. I did not turn the phone on right away but waited a day. When I turned it on, it responded like nothing was wrong. Perhaps the phone reset itself. That’s how it behaved.
In any event, I have my phone back and it’s working well.

To summarize what happened:

The phone drops into a puddle and is partially submerged for an hour or so. I find it, dry it off and make some calls, with no effects of any kind.
The next morning, it fails completely. No response whatsoever. I recharge the battery and that doesn’t work. What did work was to remove the battery and clean all the contacts and reinsert it and leave it alone for a day.
Lesson learned: record all phone numbers before I lose them forever.
Also, get a better holster so that the phone is secure from falling out.

Thank you very much for your support.

This is a known issue with the Rumor. If you take your phone into a sprint repair center or call technical support, they will most likely repair or replace it for free.

first thing you should have done is remove the battery immediately. The battery with water will fry the phone. The phone needs to dry out. I have heard several people have good luck by putting the phone in a bag of rice for 3 days. Rice will remove the moisture. Give it a try and good luck!
