Re: No Service... water damage

The best thing to try is to open the phone with torque 6 screwdrivers and to air it with an airblaster that you can get at any local electronics store. Other than that, something could have shorted out when it dropped in water.

Yesterday, I was texting my boyfriend... I was in the bath tub, but I was drying my hands off onto a towel... I didn't think much of it, because my phone has been dropped into the dogs water bowl by...

Try this :
Bring a hair dryer ,then remove your battery and sim card,then turn the hair dryer on (the hot air)
make the hair dryer focus on the phone from the battery side becuase there are some holes wich the
hot air can get inside the mobile and dry the mobile hard ware.
Make the hair dryer focus on the mobile for 5 minutes but be careful and make a distance between
the hair dryer and between the mobile to avoid damage the plastic mobile case becuase of hot air.

After five minutes turn the hair dryer off and wait until the mobile gets cold,then turn it on
This way is effective 50% to 90 %
If your mobile worked that means congratulations.
If it worked but not 100% that means there is improvement and keep drying it by the hair dryer as
i explained before,,,every dry for 5 minutes only.
But if it doesnt work at all ...that means your mobile needs a hardware repair and you have to send
it to a mobile repair store.

My nokia 3110c was immersed in water and refused to turn on, after few month when i trie to switch it on is bring message "contact service" can i get help on this?


When a phone falls into water, there things that needs to be done fast in other to prevent damage on the phone because water is not friendly with phones.

Why contact service came up was because the phone was not attended to earlier.

When a phone drops into water, first you need to remove the battery in other to prevent I C in the phone to bridge, depending on the capacity of water that entered into it, some might make the phone start getting hot.

The phone you are using has two option:

servicing the phone,
the phone might not stop showing contact service.

When you service the phone, the contact service might go off or might still be displaying the phone.

It is a 50-50 trial, might work or might no work.

Take care and good luck.

A samsung phone got wet an everything seems to be

There is probably corrosion due to the liquid damage on the circuit board. You can try cleaning it with an old toothbrush and some denatured alcohol. If that doesn't work, then it probably shorted out the RF ic. This would have to be replace by your local repair shop.

Cellphone was dropped accidentaly in a tub full of water

Yikes, try the old standby- remove the battery, sim card, memory card, and get out a hair dryer. Set it on low and carefully blow warm air into every nook and cranny of the phone for about 5 mins. Then blowit on everything else as well- attery, sim. memory card. Placed everything on a towel for 48 hours or so, pray a lot, and 2 days later put everything back together. Change up the battery to the max, before you turn it on for the first time, and pray one more time. If you're lucky everything should have dried out nicely, and the phone will work. Do not under any circumstances try to turn on the phone unless it is thoroughly dried out, because water and electricity just don't mix.

Fell in the sea and the phone went dead

you will have to get a new phone.
the sea water inside your phone will corrode and damage everything.
you can try placing the phone in a baggie with uncooked white rice and seal it for about a week, then replace the battery with a new one and see if it works.
thats your only option besides getting a new phone.

Cell phone dropped in water - red dot showing - options?

you don't need to actually drop your phone in water for there to be water damage.
simple things like having your phone in the rain, in the bathroom while you shower, around a hot tub, or possibly even if it's really humid outside can set this water damage sensor off.
it just gives phone companies more ways to void your warranty.

hope this helped.
