Phone won't come on red light come on wjen charging then goes off phone got wet how to fix

Remove battery and sim card and anything else including the Micro usb memory stick if you have it,

Put a cup of Dry Rice in a zip lock and add you cell phone to it and zip it shut. wait 24 hours and it will dry out the cell phone ..

Then try putting your cell phone back together if it didn't get burned out from staying connected to power while wet it should power up just fine. If not time for a new phone.

How to dry a wet cell phone

If a cellphone ever gets wet usually its thought that the cell phone is dead but its not the case if you follow the bellow instruction in case your cell got wet:

Dry out a wet cell phone by taking out the battery and SIM card and placing all of the parts in a zip locked bag or any other plastic bag with uncooked rice for 24 to 48 hours. Avoid putting wet cell phones in the oven, as it may melt the plastic. Remember never turn your phone on before that time or if your phone is wet and its still on then remove the battery immediately that will save your phone.

SIM card

I think they are same or similar. I think if it fits it will work. Might be differences in the recovery speed between photos. To access card on computer you will need an adapter.

My screen is completely blank from getting wet

Wet Cell Phone
Immediately remove the phone from the water, turn off the cell phone, remove the battery and SIM card. To dry out the cell phone put it in a large plastic bag with silica gel drying crystals then put it in a warm sunny place for several days or in front of a warm fan heater for several hours. Reassemble the phone and hope it will work properly again, but if does not work then it is faulty and you need a new cell phone.

I have a Motorola W260G Tracfone and I'm getting a "Restricted Number - 34" message all of a sudden. What is this about?

Had a similar problem on my V170. Remove the battery and the sim card. Using a q-tip dampened (not dripping wet) with rubbing alcohol, clean the metallic side of the sim card and allow to air-dry, then wipe once more with a dry q-tip. Do the same for the metal terminals in the sim card slot if visible. Go ahead and clean the battery's contacts and the ones in the phone while you're there. Put it all back together and try again. This will fix most sim-card problems as long as there's no physical damage.
Good Luck

Keep getting download message

You may still have water in tight places due to water surface tension. Open all the access doors, take out the SIM card, battery and anything else that is removable and put all parts in a ziplock bag. Get some dessicant bags (from old shoe boxes), cardboard pieces, saltine crackers and put them in the ziplock bag also and put on top of your microwave oven (if it is used a lot) or in the window where it gets direct sunlight. Leave it there until moisture gets on the bag then disappears again (3-5days) The dry items in the ziplock will help draw out all the moisture better than air drying. I have done this many times on cell phones, gameboys, etc. and it works everytime.

I had the same problem!! This might help: 1. Take out the battery, SIM card, and memory card (if applicable). 2. Let the phone sit in the sun for a couple of days. 3. Put the SIM card back in the phone and plug the phone charger into the phone. 4. When prompted, insert the battery into the phone 5. When battery is fully charged, remove the charger and depress the call button simultaneously.

I tired this and the phone is now working!!! Also, I do not seem to have lost any of the features!

Good Luck!!!
