Re: sea water in my phone!

Hi, It may never work again BUT!!! Take the battery out, take the phone apart as much as possible and place the phone on a register vent with the fan switch set to ON or in front of a fan for about 3 or more days and try it again. water usually does not hurt electronics as long as there is no power to it and it is dry when you put power to it. If this even happens again, Get the battery out of it as soon as possible an DO NOT REPLACE IT OR TRY TO CHARGE IT until it is completely dry. Water and powered electronics do not get along in any way shape of form. Especially salt water. You will probably have to replace the phone. Your saved information may be on the sim card. Good Luck. kstfas

My nokia e51 dropped in sea salt water ten days ago, I dried it and opened its cover under the keyboard and cleaned it , it worked very well for a whole week, the problem is now the battery is not...


The sea salt water has made the charging port corrode. So get a screw driver, open the phone and bring out the charging port. The charging port is where you put our charger. Use methylated spirit to brush the charging port and the panel where the charging port is place.

Dry it for 30 minutes and couple the phone and it will start working fine.

Returned my samsung wave and they said it was water damaged ..this is not the case wondering how they can say this when i know it has not been water damaged

Hello,since you were told the phone is water damaged and you felt its not,i guess it could have happened either someone in your house did in a way or probably it could be tea at home or in office.and that definitely does not have a warranty i will advice you take it down for fix.
that is the only remedy to that can kindly visit any authorized phone repairer to do the servicing for you.

wish you good luck.

Ur cell phone is affected due to water droplets which went inside the cellphone and into its electronic ciruits... This problem is also not covered under warranty.. So u hav to go to a nokia store and ask them to repair it... It will cost alot but its the only solution for it...

I have been at the beach fishing when a big wave soaked me. My blackberry has died since...after I tried to dry soon as I put the battery inside Bold 9000, the flash is turn on forever and nothing is...

just remove the user serviceable parts like battery, cover, keypad and keep it close under a 100 watts bulb. you should have done this alreadyand the problem will be solved if its just rain water. but since the water is salty(beach) it should have affected the ic chips. you need to take your phone to a mobile service centre as soon as possible.

Phone Immersed in Sea Water = DEAD!

For many years it has been known that Electricity and Water do not go together. Since mobiles work with electricity - although low voltage - it is therefore NOT surprising that your phone no longer works.

Indeed the sea water is not only a very good conducter of electricity so it would have shorted out the delicate componants and that is why it no longer works, it is also very corrosive and therefore would make the phone unrepairable.

I'm afraid the only answer is to get a new one..
