    I got water in the keyboard of my phone causing some keys to not work. I took the sim card out and put it in temporary phone. I turned the g1 on and placed it in rice. It was working perfectly in the morning until I took the battery to put the sim card back in. Now I get a warning sign with the phone underneath it.

What can i do to get my phone working again?


Probably too late if it was powered whilst still wet. Next time you drop a phone in water, quickly take the battery out and place the phone in a bag of rice for at least 2 days. The rice gradually absorbs all the moisture. Never use a hair dryer because it blows water molecules into the display panel and other delicate parts.

I dropped my phone in water, then I put it in rice after that my screen did'nt come on, what do I do?


Wet Cell Phone
Immediately remove the phone from the water,turn off the cell phone remove the battery and SIM card. When you have driedthe cell phone by putting in a warm sunny place for several days or in front ofa warm fan heater for several hours then reassemble the phone. Hopefully itwill work properly but if does not work then it is faulty and you need a newcell phone.

Uniden 6.0 phone got wet.


If the phone got wet it will probably not work anymore. You might try tossing it in a bag of rice to dry it out completely. But in most cases, dropping the phone in water will ruin it.

My htc g1 got slightly wet. I dried it out, and now when i try to turn it on, the screen doesn't light up, but the light at the top comes on blue


The screen sounds like it has been damaged. Are you sure you have totally died it out?
First remove the battery, Then put it in a bowl of dry rice. The rice absorbes the moisture. Leave it in there for upto 24hours if its still not working try using a vacuum cleaner to **** up any remaining moisture.

My samsung impression dropped in water and touch screen broke


I also dropped my Samsung Impression in the toilet, I immediately took the phone took the protective case off, took the battery cover off, and took the battery and my SIM card out and towel dried it as best as I could. Then I sat it on the floor next to my fan and let it dry until I got to my grandparents a little while later and I put it in a bowl of rice, completely covered the phone and battery with rice and left it sit overnight in the rice and all of the next day, so far i've had it on about 20 minutes and have had no problems with it so far, another solution is to sit it in the sun, to further dry it out. Water damage will void warranties on your phone and battery and your provider will know instantly if the damage was water related when they take your battery cover off, there is a small square sticker that when dry and hasn't touched water should be white, but as soon as it comes into contact with water it turns red, there is also one of these stickers on the battery. My stickers were red and after sitting in the rice they look like they got lighter in color considerably, I don't know if that is really possible but appearance wise it looks that way. I hope this helps anyone who has had this problem. Good Luck!

Need to dry out my motorola W755


The general solution is time consuming. When my son got his wet, we popped the back cover, took the battery out, and buried the phone in a bowl of rice. The rice will leech the water out of the phone.

My phone got wet


Try removing the battery, using a blow dryer to air everything out in battery compartment. If there are any tiny screws or way to open up the phone itself, open it up, and blow everything inside there too.

Let it dry out completely and then see if it will work again. My guess is no, because once the circuits get wet, they are pretty much damaged and irrepairable.

Hope this helps at least some. Good luck!

Cell phone was wetted and now i have water condensed on the display screen (inside). how can i pop out the display to dry off the water?


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.

Due to the complex inner working of cell phones once they are dropped in water they are considered useless.
