Question about HTC Touch P3450 Smartphone
My HTC Touch mobile got lightly wet and i didn't noticed it immediately.i tried use it,it got switched off and not turning on again.Even,i didn't remove the battery for couple of hours.what can i do now?
I have fixed a few electronics devices (IPOD< ghettoblaster, radio) that have gotten wet. All using the same approach. Hopefully this will help you:
1) First things first - get the battery out.
2) Dry off what you can.
3) If you are tech saavy, open the unit up and use a hair dryer or put it under a lamp for a few hrs to dry it off. If you can, take as much apart as possibe as the water likely got into all spaces.
4) The most important part is that you will have to make sure that all contact surfaces are clean and do not have oxidation on them. This was the single-most important thing I looked for and fixed. Especially contact points where the battery terminals contact the main unit. If the metal looks tarnished, get a cloth and buff the terminals. If that does not work, use rubbing alcohol on them. If water has gotten under the keypad, you will have to do the same there. Once clean, leave it apart to ensure it all gets dry.
5) When you are confident that all the water has been removed, put it back together, put the battery in and try it. Dont forget to make sure the battery has a charge as well.
