Re: static

The Water has caused the coils inside the speaker to rust.

Buy yourself a broken lcd, but functional speaker , for sale model of your phone, and switch speakers.

Re: static

Just and idea but if it was recent you might still be able to save it. there might be moisture or water residur left in your phone causing a short. First remove your battery and sim card, plave the phone in a joar and fill the jar with big thick plain raw white rice overnight, the rice WILL actually absorb any leftover moisture. this has saved my wifes phone many times.

My samsung sph m350 took a swim in the hot the back dry, but there is still water in the lcd part how do i take it apart to dry it? phone is not working. thanks.

i personally wouldn't risk further damage by taking it apart to try and dry it off. one trick i use and it may seem silly but does work is to soak it in uncooked rice for a few hours the rice will pull out the water after some time and can help the device work. If the device had been submerged or soaked for any substantial amount of time with the battery in it, it may be a lost cause fyi.

Dropped my cell in water

does your phone still work after being submerged?? i did the same and it was toast...

the screen is layered...glasss, lcd, and they are not meant to come apart. The phone needs to be left out, taken apart as far as you can get to air out. Leave it for a day or so, and put together. Hope this helps

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.

Drop Samsung Upstage in water

wow, himan and masir really have no idea what they are talking about. clean it properly before inserting the battery? remove the battery and get it serviced? you 2 are idiots. the upstage battery can't be removed without disasembling the entire case and then desoldering the battery from the board. i bet you 2 are probably the same people that get complaints left and right when people call dell and get an outsourced call center...

I had my phone in my purse and a water bottle opened up and spilled all over. My phone was able to turn on but the touch screen did not work at all it just beeped.

To fix it all I did was got an eye glass repair screwdriver that you can get at any Walgreens or CVS for around $2. I unscrewed the back screws (there's 5) and took off the top back panel, blow dried it on very low heat for a while and let it sit over night with out the cover. In the morning it worked like new.

Hope this helps.

My gf had the same problem with her phone. We took out the memory card (mini-SD) and it turned on without a problem. Try it.
