You will have to get a new phone.
the sea water inside your phone will corrode and damage everything.
you can try placing the phone in a baggie with uncooked white rice and seal it for about a week, then replace the battery with a new one and see if it works.
thats your only option besides getting a new phone.

Dropped in the sea.


If it was dropped in the sea a couple of month ago it is dead. You need to remove the battery and repair it within 24 hours, and even then repair is iffy

Dropped camera into the sea while it was switch on now completly dead, any ideas if it can be fixed!


Sea water is corrosive and just gets worse over time. Most repair facilities won't even bother with your camera. If you find one that will, the cost will be enormous...they have to replace everything including the lens. Buying a new camera is much cheaper.

My N73 aint working at all i updated a software and it got hanged now its nt even starting


Dear Ashad , your phone software not done proper Updating. Result is phone software corrupted and dead. Only one solution Just Visit Nokia service center and tell then to install the updated software for your Nokia N73. Problem will solve then. If your handset not on at home you can't fix it by yourself.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Dropped Sony Camcorder in sea water


This isn't a solution specific to your problem, but maybe similar enough to help. I've dropped both my cell phone and iPod in the water. My friend told me to fill a bowl with uncooked rice and submerge the cell phone in the rice to draw out the water - took about 2 days and all was working fine - same with the iPod, but it took longer (about a week.) You might want to gently clean the battery connections with a Q-tip if you're seeing residue. Good luck!

Phone Immersed in Sea Water = DEAD!


For many years it has been known that Electricity and Water do not go together. Since mobiles work with electricity - although low voltage - it is therefore NOT surprising that your phone no longer works.

Indeed the sea water is not only a very good conducter of electricity so it would have shorted out the delicate componants and that is why it no longer works, it is also very corrosive and therefore would make the phone unrepairable.

I'm afraid the only answer is to get a new one..
