    I have the same problem but my phone did not get wet. This just started out of no where. I had just used my phone 45 minutes earlier and then it stopped. Confusing part is that I can use my headset.

    Any ideas or thoughts?

Once water gets inside the phone there is not much you can do about it. If you want you can try what I have done for my daughter many times with good results. Remove the battery, this will help a great deal. Just having the phone powered up is not a good thing while it is wet. After removing the battery allow it to air dry, you can use a hair dryer to speed things up, but be careful not to get the phone too hot. I hold it in my hand and that keeps me from getting it to hot.
Leave the battery out for as long as you can, days would be better than hours. Then put the battery back in and see if the moisture is out of the phone. If this works you are good to go, if not then your phone may be beyond help because of the water.

White screen


did you drop it in water, ?did you press the screen to hard and cracked the lcd panel? those are the most common reasons, oh, and dropping it, and also dropping it in water. I would suggest going over all those possibilities.. open up the back of your phone and pull out the battery, in all phones now they have a water sensor dot, it remains white always unless the phone was damaged by water, and warranty doesnt cover water damage, look for that little white dot, if its red, that means you gotta get a new phone, and if you try peeling if off theyll know youre covering up water damage, unless you were able to somehow obtain another white color changing dot to put back in your phone now in the exact place it should be, but techs are very good at catching bluffs. but if that white is intact to begin with, your phone should be under warrenty of some sort, and that means they owe you a new one. bottom line. BOOM

How do i find out if the motorola cliq im going to buy has had water damage?


when you pop the battery off there is a circular dot near the middle near the orange or black rubber thing that helps lock the SIM in and SD card.

The dot is likely either white or red. White should indicate that it is good and red if it had significant moisture/ water contact.

Motorola razr has red dot inside phone


The phone has gotten wet somehow.......

Remove the battery!! Let the phone sit in a warm place for several days. Keep checking once a day or so to see if it will work. Always remove the battery while drying. If after a few days of drying it still is not fucntioning, it's wasted!

Slight water damage


Don't have a soulution if you don't want to go to the provider. Enless the dot that is on the back behide your battery isn't red then you don't have water damage some things just happen. If it isn't i would take it in seeming you just got it.

Phone will not turn on


ok, take out the battery and look and see you can see a white dot pice of circular paper, if it is red, your phone somehow got water in it, look at your battery(white dot paper) if it is red than you have water in you phone. now you need to dry it! leave it on your car dast board in the sun 24hrs or use a hair dryer ( use low heat) you must dry your phone and battery completely before the next step, Next step- find a good working battery and insert it in your phone, see if this will correct your problem, sometime the battery volt are very low or maybe the battery itself its bad, but make sure you put in a new battery to test this out, don't pay for the battery until you check you phone at the counter, ask for the right model for you phone.

good luck

Wet phone


Unfortunately you phone has water damage, and your warrenty does not cover that. For your information, either behind the battery, or within the casing, there is a white dot, and when the white dot turns red the service provider knows that your phone has been in contact with water. Your two options are to buy a new phone, or to wait it out and hopefully your phone will air dry and everything will work ok.
