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.

Hope i helped you.

I dropped my LG phone in a glass of water and now the screen says


When you obtained water damage to your phone you should have immediatly taken the battery out and put both battery and the phone in a bowl of rice and sealed it.

This would allow the rice to draw out the moisture from inside the phone. This would have to be done for at least 24-48 hours to work properly.

Even if you do it exactly like that its still not 100% certain to work.
The phone already sounds to have been damaged hence the random message on the screen.

Your only real option is to replace the phone as repairing a phone these days is not cost effective. Post back with any questions or comments for further assistance.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Emergency Download


you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried
