Hi,
You did get moisture in there...
Place the phone in a bag of rice.. for a couple of days... it may pull enough of the moisture out so that it will work again...but you may have already ruined it by turning it on...
Try the rice trick... it may help you out...

Dropped phone in water for about 2 sec and pulled it apart right way and let it dry can it be fixed


Did you dry the phone completely? If not here is the procedure to take out all moisture trapped in the phone: Dry the phone, battery, any accessory, etc. with cloth and wrap each piece, phone and accessories, in newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped phone in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your phone because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the phone. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs.

Dropped phone in water for about 2 sec and pulled it apart right way and let it dry, can it be fixed


Hi,

problem can be solved.When a phone drops into water the water stays inside the phone.When the water dries insid the board of the phone, it might bridge two IC together and cause demage or makes the phone to act in a strange way.

In order to remove the water from the phone the phone needs to be serviced for it to work properly.

Get a screw driver that can loosen the screws on the phone, unscrew and remove the board of the phone, get a methylated spirit and a brush to clean the board in other to remove the water inside the phone.

After brushing the board, leave it to dry for 10 minutes and fix it back into the phone and the phone will be back to live.

NOTE: if you can lose the phone , i would advice you take it to a mobile engineer to fix it for you in other to cause further damage to the phone.

Have a nice day.

I also have a Sony Ericsson K850I and dropped in the 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

I dropped my LG enV into a puddle of water.


Sounds like you will need a new battery. My env2 would only work if plugged into the wall charger after I dropped it in the toilet. I got a new battery and it works fine now!

Lg was dropped in coke.. any way fix?


MOST LIKELY YOU WILL GET MORE PROBLEMS WITH THIS PHONE IN THE FUTURE WHAT CAN HELP SOME IS IF YOU OPEN UP THE PHONE AND USE A TOOTHBRUSH TO CLEAN OFF THE CHARGING AREA FROM THE OUTSIDE FIRST THEN GO TO THE INSIDE, I WOULD RUB DOWN EVERY PART I COULD, IT MOST LIKELY WILL HELP FOR NOW BUT I WOULDNT TRUST THE PHONE, WATER DAMAGE CAUSES THE PHONE TO CORRODE SLOWLY.

Katana II likely water damage... Help!


Take the battery off, unfold the phone, set it in a warm, dry place and pray like heck. plugging it in may help it stay warm but leave it off.
If its minor water exposure it'll likely be fine in 2-3 days.

Clothing slipped under washtub


It's quite a long process to remove the wash tub! Read all of this before starting - including the part about new parts #1-unplug the machine \ turn off water! #2-the top of the cabinet must be lifted from the front (slip a putty knife into the front groove to release the right & left clips - about 6" from corners) #3-carefully lift top up from front until it is vertical (support it so it won't fall) #4-undo clips and hoses that hold tub top ring in place and carefully remove it #5-plastic top (cap) of agitator in bottom center of tub must be removed (short screw driver should unclip it at four small holes) #6-remove 6 bolts from around inside of area that was under cap and remove plastic washtub bottom as well as center plastic dome #7-now center keeper nut must be removed from universal joint for agitator - now the whole steel tub should be able to be lifted off of the splines (pay attention to the relationship of the splines so you can put it back just as it was!! Now you should be able to clear everything from the area that was below the tub! Also check the outlet for any other clothing items!! when this all goes back together, its recommended that all new rubber washers and seals be used to make sure that the universal joint assembly stays dry!! GOOD LUCK
