Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

No signal! I dropped my phone in water the other day, and removed it within two seconds. I then immediately took the battery and sim card out. After waiting for it to dry, I put everything back together, and it worked fine. A few hours later, though, the signal disappeared! I haven't been able to make calls since. Any tips?

Re: No signal!

There is most likely corrosion from the water, or liquid on the mother board. It needs to be professionally cleaned if you want to have some functionality back. Best of Luck.

I immersed it in water for few seconds

Immediately remove the phone from the water,turn off the cell phone remove the battery and SIM card. When you have driedthe cell phone by putting in a warm sunny place for several days or in front ofa warm fan heater for several hours then reassemble the phone. Hopefully itwill work properly but if does not work then it is faulty and you need a newcell phone.

Absolutley EVERYTHING still works just blank screen after dropping in water.

If you put it in water, immediately shut the phone off, pull the battery, sim card (if applicable) and put everything in a bowl of white rice for a few days. The white rice should remove the device enough so everything should be usable.
I've also heard that immediately freezing the phone works too, your choice.

I dropped my lg vu cu920 into the water and it just says emergency dowload, what do i do?

Take the battery out, dry the phone, battery, SIM and/or memory card with paper towels as much as possible. Take all of the pieces and wrap them in a single paper towel loosely. Drop this in a ziplock bag and fill it with baking soda, then zip it up. Let it sit for 2 - 3 days.

The worst thing to do with a phone that has been in contact with water is to run a current through it.

Nokia n 73 droped in water for 3 seconds

This happened to me one fine summers eve in a pool in Los Angeles, but i'll spare you those details ;)

There is indeed hope! Make sure you dont put the batter back into it for a few days, take some dry rice and immerse the phone into it, the rice will **** any of the excess moisture out from the phone. DO NOT douse it in rubbing alcohol, and do not "bake" it in an oven or in too hot of sun, this will deform the internal electronics.. Hope this helps! :)

Maybe rzr v3m; black screen after dropping phonein water

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
