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.

My iphone got wet now light is so dim i restored it and everything but it is still dim i can do call and receive calls everything else works great execpt for the light what can i do.

First, check your brightness setting. Usually I'd give some other troubleshooting tips, however the fact that the phone got wet tells me that the screen itself has water damage. A good trick (something I've done many times) is crack the screen then take it to the Apple store and ask for a replacement. They have a "One-time exception" and will replace the phone for free. Hope this suggestion helps :)

This is a problem that is associated with the flex cable.
The cable might be broken or damaged someway. You have to see a repairer because replacing this cable requires enough expertise and care.

My n95 is having some display light fading problem. i cant see anything. but when i am restarting i can see the nokia symbol very clearly. after that everything fades

Hello, problem can be caused by, light IC inside the phone , or the screen is getting damaged and will need to be replaced.

Replace screen with another first to see if the light problem will stop, before you check the light IC .

Take care.

Dell inspirion 2200 notebook screen really dim cant see hooked up another monitor and it works . how can i fix?

If your screen is dim but still displays everything then please check if the screen's brightness has not been accidentally reduced. If that is okay, then you have a damaged screen inverter and it needs to be changed. If the screen does not display at all, then you may have to change your screen.

All the best.

Screen has gone blank after getting wet. Green and red keys still light up but nothing else is working. Would a replacement screen fix this ?

The only thing you can do is to try & dry it out.
Remove the battery panel and battery.
Wipe inside battery compartment and battery with kitchen towel, then move all pieces to a warm room(not on radiator) and leave for 24 hrs.
Then fix in battery and battery panel.Turn on ,that will be the best as you can get this phone.
As water damage affects the whol phone.

Fingers crossed for you.

Change lightbubl V557

I am sorry to say that it is not a lightbulb. It is a LED screen you have blown a circuit not a bulb. You can replace the screen, but it is not cost effictient. You are lucky the phone works at all. You must have done the smart thing and took the battery out. If you did, good job, smart thinking.. Sorry my friend..

Please give good ratings, they are really important to me
