Water Damaged LG VX8600

I bought a water damaged LG VX8600 off eBay for $4.00. Professionally Repairing it will cost me $50-60. I decided to do it myself.
I have removed the 6 Screws holding it together (4 On Screen - 2 Behind Battery). I have managed to get the front screen off the phone, but I am not able to remove the rear of the phone.
Did I not remove all the screws? Where do I pull to separate it?

I dropped my samsung in my sink and i picked it up and took out the battery and let it dry and about 30 mins after i put the battery back in and up comes a blank white screen and it keeps vibrating how can...

Once a phone has been water damaged it will never work properly again. Water - even fresh water - contains salt. And, salt is an excellent conductor of electricity. When the water evaporates, salt deposits still remain. This causes the phone's electronics to short circuit causing a variety of problems.

The cost to repair the phone will far outweigh the cost to replace it. Repairing it does not mean that it will continue to work properly.

My advice is to sell the phone on eBay for parts. Let the buyer know it has suffered water damage. And, replace it with a new phone. You'll be much happier in the long run.

My sons ds lite has been water damaged is it worth repairing it?

If I were you I would get a new DS because in this case it might cost more to repair it that to buy another or other problems could come up from previous water damage. But I am not you. Hope I helped

I dropped my LG phone in a glass of water and now the screen says

When you obtained water damage to your phone you should have immediatly taken the battery out and put both battery and the phone in a bowl of rice and sealed it.

This would allow the rice to draw out the moisture from inside the phone. This would have to be done for at least 24-48 hours to work properly.

Even if you do it exactly like that its still not 100% certain to work.
The phone already sounds to have been damaged hence the random message on the screen.

Your only real option is to replace the phone as repairing a phone these days is not cost effective. Post back with any questions or comments for further assistance.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Error message: unapproved battery

Water is very bad for these devices, obviously. The battery was damaged when it got wet. Take your phone in with you and get a new battery. Fortunately it sounds like your phone will be ok.

Cracked glass on LG vx8600

I think that you would have to get this professionally done. It might be able to down by an individual that is untrained but there is a high risk of messing up your phone. Take it to a professional and the parts so it will cost less.

Let me know if this helps :)
