Dear Babygrll,

It's probably because you shorted out the electronics in your cell phone. If you are lucky, you can turn it off, take out the batteryand let it dry out over night and turn it on tomorrow and hope it's not fried. Unless you have extra insurance protection on the phone, you'll be buying a replacement because water damage is not covered under normal warranties. Next time, don't text and shower...

I took my Samsung Propel into the shower as to not disrupt a conversation via text. I think it might have gotten some steam and/or water in it. Now some of my keys take a few presses to write a letter and...

You need to immediately unasseble it. take off battery cover, take out battery and if possible use a hairdryer on the inside of the phone (obviously not too close to the phone hardware). Then leave it for a couple of hours and if you're lucky enough, it will work as it did before the steamy shower!

I dropped my ipod touch in the shower and grabbed it right away, it got wet and is acting up now. the touch screen didnt work at first then worked a little and now it wont work at all no matter what i do!...

As the mobile is wet the circuit board inside the mobile will be fully wet.Due to this the connections between the circuits get connected(short circuited) and the mobile may behave in such a manner that it should not behave. Never put the wet mobile in charger even though it is dry and working properly.There may be water logs present in the mobile circuit which may be dangerous to the person who is using the mobile.It may lead to electric shock.
Take the mobile to the authorized dealer of your make and they will remove the water log from the mobile circuit board and it will be fine .I recommend you not to do this by yourself.
Thank You

On off does not work dampness on battery

First thing is be sure that the battery is charged and not dead.

2nd hold down the on/off siwtch a little longer and see what happens.

if you have a wall outlet, or charger for it plug that in and then try turning it on, if it comes on then its your battery.

remove the battery and make sure its dry, and clean and blow around where your phone battery sits. Make sure its clean (dont use any liquid here, just blow).
Then replace the battery and the back cover and make sure the battery is connecting.

if it still dont work then sounds like your phone may have gotten wet some how.

look near or under the battery you should see a white or red/pink sticker.

if the sticker is white the phone has gotten wet, and prob has shorted out. Even if its not pink/red then the phone itself didn't get wet, but if you recently had the phone in the bathroom when you took a shower ect. its still possible the condensation from the shower got inside and shorted your phone out.

Your last and final step would be making a insurance claim on your phone if you have phone insurance.
(as long as the sticker isnt red or pink)

Taking it back to where you bought it if you havnt had it very long,

or getting a new one, either by updating your contract if your eligible, using an old cell if you have one, or buying a new one.

please rate and recommend me if this has been helpful.

Don't know how to use carpet shampooer

You should have the new aquamate, it has a blue top to fill with the water and water/soap solution that pops down into place. You will need to use your power nozzle hose and tube, connect it to your shampooer (make sure to connect the power connection just like the power nozzle). Fill your water up, large compartment is for cold water only and the smaller compartment is for one cap full of soap then the rest filled with cold water. Start with just a splash of water or an empty basin in the rainbow. The trigger will control your water spray and the brush underneath. There are two levers on the back of the shampooer marked with a shower head and a bar of soap. Use the soap with the shower head and the soap on and the water only with just the shower head on. You will want to also go over the area shampooed with both off to **** up the remaining water. Make sure to clean your floor thoroughly before shampooing.

The people I call can't hear me on my LG Envy

You can tell if your phone has gotten wet by taking out the battery. There's a little sticker both on the phone and on your battery that is white with little red crosses on it. If it's faded and red, you have water damage. I recently had the same problem though, without any water damage. They told me that it was not a common problem.. but it's happened to me twice, on two different Env's. Soo... sounds like a common problem to me.

Rainbow aqua mate II instructions

You have the vacuum and the basin, you put them together just like when you vacuum but don't put water in the basin. There is a large white container that comes with the shampooer. you fill that up with water and then you place the vacuum cleaner and the basin on top of that. Now you will need the water hose (not the one that has the gas pump hadle). Hook that in the same spot that you do for vacuuming. Then you take the shampooing handle( it will have a trigger and a little white bottle and some tubes hooked to it) the one end of it hooks to the water hose and the other end hooks to the wands. There are 2 wands that come with your shampooer. At the end of those the shampooer head will be attached. There are two separate tubes there is a thick tube ( there two tubes fused together) and a thin tube, they hook to the large white container that you fill with water. Just look and you will see where they go. Then there is a tube that hooks to the shampooer head at the bottom. The you take the little bottle and fill it with your shampoo. You should have gotten some clips to hool onto your hose so that you can keep the tubes attached to it so they aren't in the way. You should be set. I hope I helped.
