Leave it in the rice for several days, if it still doesn't work then it's shot.

SOURCE: Samsung Galaxy S2 fell into water wont turn on ! PLEASE HELP

You should not have tried to use it right away. You should have immediately pulled the battery out and then blow dried it and put into the rice bag for 24-36 hours. Because you tried to use it is shorted out. You will need a new phone as it is probably not going to be able to be fixed. Sorry!

What do I do if phone falls in water?


Open the phone. Remove the battery and the SD card if installed. Leaving the phone open, place the entire phone in a bowl dry white rice (uncooked). The rice will act as a dessicant and absorb the moisture. Leave the phone in the rice for 2 days or so, then reassemble and test. If it still doesn't work, you can try again. After that, if it still don't work...get a new phone.

This does work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but you have to put it in the rice as soon as...


Take it out of the water and remove the battery. Then put the battery in dry rice and cover it overnight. The rice sucks out all the water and you should be ready to go. It worked for me.

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.

Black screen fell into water and not working


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

Phone fell in the toilet and need method to dry.


Remove the battery, do NOT try and power it on. Get a bowl and pour some rice into it, place the phone in it and let dry for a few days.

If you try and power it on while there is ANY water left inside it, you can short it out and ruin it permanently. This is the best known method, but is not guaranteed to work.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

T-Mobile Shadow Water Damage


try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.
