Re: Dropped in water and beer bucket

The water has interfered with the circuit board in the back which controls the functions of the phone. You need to replace the phone. Since you bought it recently, i am assuming you have warranty so you should have no problems returning it. Good luck!

My sony mylo com-2 fell in the water

Try this before you get it to the service :
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.

Dropped in bucket of soapy water for 3 to 4 seconds. Does not work even after drying out.

Take out the battery and any memory card or accessories . Use a hair dryer on low heat around the buttons, any openings and battery compartment for a few minutes.

Repeat the step 3 times and then leave it in warm dry place overnight..with any luck it should start working again.

Good luck.

Short Battery life, Randomly shuts down, and more...

sounds like the battery is shot. Get a new battery and fully charge it. I try to charge my phone more off of a power outlet and not the cigarette lighter in a auto. The battery will last longer that way. something about cigarette lighters. As far as the messaging and failed calls goes. up grade your tower signals. contact your cell phone company and get the number for upgrading the towers.

Dopped in sea water :-(

Water may have created short circuits and might have damaged both, the battery and the phone.

Since sea water contains salt and this is very damaging for all electronics devices, I would probabli advise you to completely clean the circuit boards etc with alcohol. You can probably set it from maplin or RS Components. They call it ethanol and is good for cleaning circuit boards as it evaporates quickly.

So after you cleaned it, leave it to dry and if nothing has been damaged then you may be a lucky person.

HTC diamond dropped in water

Try using a hairdryer on it. Open it up as far as you can without voiding your warranty. Don't let it get too hot but the moisture is inside and you may be able to get it to dry out in a couple of days.

Water Damage

Take the battery out, disassemble it, take every piece out, and clean them off with Deionized water, don't be afraid to get them wet again. Once you have cleaned them good, let them air dry for several days. Reassemble the phone and hope for the best! You will have about a 50/50 shot at not having any damage to the phone.

Hope this helps!
