Re: paul skurulis

When i thought my phone broke because i got pushed into a pool, i was told to put it in a bowl of rice. Take out the sim card and battery and put all components of the phone into the rice. If this doesn't work, you can take out the sim card and battery, and just put the body of the phone in the oven... heat it up to 100 and then put your phone in there, only leave it in for about 15 minute intervals. DO NOT PUT THE SIM CARD OR BATTERY IN THE OVEN THEY WILL BLOW UP!

Re: paul skurulis

When a phone gets wet, there is usually no fix for the problem, especially with coke. the sugar and other ingredients in a coke can corode anything faster than water. unfortunately you will probably need a new phone. stop by radioshack they have great deals on cell phones.

I hear if you remove the battery for 8 hours, it will drein the phone components respondible for the red sreen, except this is only a temp fix..everytime you turn off the phone it will do the same. my phone is doing the same thing..i'm on hour 4.but my phone never got wet, or any othe reason for this, i don't why its doing it.

You needed to open your phone and to dry it throughly or have it check to technicians maybe thier is still moisture left inside and causes your phone to malfunction.

I spilt coke on my phone

That's pretty good way to kill a phone.

Open it up, remove the battery. Clean the battery contacts if they are dirty (but be careful - batteries can give you a shock). Clean it with a lightly damp (not wet) cloth, and place it in a warm dry place to dry off with the battery removed, and case open.

It MIGHT come back to life.

I have an enV 2, about 2-3 years old.I dropped my phone in the toilet, for 3 seconds, dried it with a towel, let it sit for 5 mins, put it in front of a fan for about 7 mins, and put it in rice for 30...

Yo! the drying system you used is not enough to dry it. you need to open it up to the best you can and dry under the sun for hours or under **** heat. that should do. thanks

Coke spilled on nokia e90 and front display is not working

Remove the battery immediately, and use a hair dryer to dry up all the traces of coke. Do it for a few minutes at a time, many times till you are sure that the phone is totally dried up. Then insert the battery and poweron the phone. By using it wet I only hope that you have not short circuited some portion. DO NOT USE THE HEAT while doing it.

Lg vu water damage

Let it dry completely without the battery and it may come back to life. If a red mark appears on the cell then it is ruined and will have to be replaced.

Try following steps to get rid of it:

1. Takeout the battery of your phone.
2. Leave your cell in air for a day or two without attaching battery and battery cover to it.
3. Put the battery back,it should work.If still problem exists, then I'll recommend you to buy a new battery for your cell........and before you put that new battery in your cell,leave your cell in air for another two days with the same procedure.

First, you need to remove the battery and any flash cards, then you need to dry the phone (NOT WITH A HAIRDRIER!). To dry the phone, you should bury it in a bowl full of those moisture-absorbant "do not eat" packs that come with shoes or other purchases. However, these are often not available. Instead, use plain white rice (dry) to bury your phone in a bowl. Leave it for 1-2 weeks (the longer the better, up to a month) and one last thing, if it was removed from soapy water, as odd as it sounds, it should be fully rinsed in clean cold tap water. If it still won't work after all that, you could try a data-retrival place (if you can pay for it!). Hope this helps, WolfIan.

Wont turn on

Make sure the battery is seed properly. Also, sometimes removing the battery and cleaning the connections helps. Try this---remove battery take a qtip put a tiny bit of rubbing alcohol on the end of it (DO NOT SOAK IT!!!!!) clean the connections. Let dry for a few minutes, reinstall the battery.

I had a phone that kept turning off on it's own and that worked.
