Question about Samsung SGH-T519 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Phone LCD is very dull after water damage, rest of phone works

I dropped my phone in the water and I dried it out for a few hours, the display worked and not the keypad, then I let it dry for another day or two, but this time, the display was very dark (almost black) but the phone worked fine! Sometimes the screen flickers but mostly it is very dark or black, is there any way I can get this samsung back into working order? any help would be great thanks.

Go get a torx screw driver and open it up stop turning it on that will only hurt it ... once you open it up dry under a lamp for a day and it will probably work

My phone was submerged in water for about 90 seconds. Will it still work and how long should I wait before trying it?


You should probably wait for a few days to ensure it's completely dry on the inside. I have heard other folks suggest that putting the phone in a bowl of white rice for a few days is a great way to dry it out. The rice will absorb the moisture.


Did the case cover the entire phone or just the sides and back like most?

Assalam o alaikum. my cell drop into water tommorrow next day working right.but now many of buttons are not working??? what i can do for this? Thanks


Number 1 rule if your phone gets wet... DO NOT turn it on.
Remove the battery from the phone. get a small ziploc freezer bag place phone in bag pour uncooked grains of rice into bag. Enough to cover phone completely. Close bag. Let it sit for at least 2 days.
This is to absorb all the moisture from the phone. Remove phone, insert battery and try using it. It may work. But you need to wait until your phone is completely dry before attempting to use it.

Wait at least 48 hours to turn it on. This gives enough time for most moisture to evaporate. If it has a removable battery cover and battery take all those out to speed up the drying. Also, remove the sim card before you turn it on. If the phone is damaged, the sim card may still be usable and you can preserve your data.

Hi, I dropped my mobile SGH-F210 in the water. As soon as it happened I opened and let it to dry. It was working for a few hours but it stopped working. At first it was showing that the battery needed...


Unfortunately, all water - even fresh water - contains salt. And, salt is a very good conductor of electricity.

When cell phones get wet, trace amounts of salt will collect and then dry on the phone's circuit board causing circuits on the board to 'short out'.

We use to repair cell phones with water damage here at the shop. Many times, they would begin to work again - only to become very problematic a few days later.

Keep in mind, even if you pay for your phone to be repaired, chances are it will not stay trouble free for very long.

Your best bet is to replace it. It's better than wasting good money on a phone you'll soon need to replace anyway.

Make sure not to turn your mobile immediately

Dry your mobile first
Your could use blow dryer to remove get rid of the moist inside the mobile
then when you're sure that the mobile is already dry try turning it on

if the mobile doesn't turn on your mobile has already short circuited

One trick for getting water out of things is placing them in a bowl of dry rice, rice is known for absorbing the water out of things. Also, when you dry it out, take the battery pack off separately in the bowl, that way the insides of it have a better chance of drying out. Leave it in there for a few hours and check if it works. If it doesn't leave a comment and I'll try my best to help.

Display screen is backwards


Sounds like the LCD is missing a signal getting to it. One of the signal lines is either damaged, possibly still has a small amount of liquid on it and is getting a bunch of resistance it shouldn't be.

Open the phone up, and let it sit and dry fully for a few days.

You could always try dropping it back into the rye & coke, it seemed to prefer that to water =0)

Dropped my Sanyo Katana cell in a cup of soda!!


probably too late but he first thing to don in that sit. is rinse the phone in a 75/25 solution of alcohol and water. then open up as you did and let it dry. if you can see water on the display screen your probably out of luck but keep it warm and dry for a few days and see what happens.

V3 got wet


sorry to say this but a wet phone is ruined. You will have to take it to a tech at your phone server. They will either repair it or you will have to get another one. Water and phones do not go together at all. Sux.

I got it wet


Take battery out let dry for a couple of days. see if it will power up without the battery. And the phone hooked to the charger. If not try same procedure with battery in and power up while charging. Either way take battery out for a while.
