Wet phone no service

I dropped my phone in water, i got it out as soon as it fell it, the screen turned white, it started vibrating as soon as it got wet. I took the battery out as soon as i could. I dried it out and turned it on. Everything works except the 'END' button and the speaker. Also, I sont get ANY service anymore. It says 'Looking for service' & 'Looking for coverage' I need to know how to trouble shoot it or somthing to get it to have service again.

I think you should keep it in sunlight for some time, coz when phone get wet there are very high chance of short-circuit. It good you had removed battery soon. You can try to remove all the parts of phones which can be removed and dry it for some time. Then try again.

Still not working then check with local phone repairer if not want to spent on new phone. they can fix it in less bucks.

Un fortunately when a phone gets wet it is one of the worst things that can happen to a phone. pretty much have to get a new phone. if ya have insurance on your account ya will just have to contact them and for 50 bucks they will sent ya a new one and ya send them the broken one.

I also have a Sony Ericsson K850I and dropped in the water.


you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

My Samsung Alias wont completely start up!


I'm very sorry to say your phone is not going to work again. It has clearly been damaged from sitting 4 ft under water for over an hour.

The phone was on, you dropped it and the water found its way inside and shorted it out. It's a miracle that it is able to turn on at all.

The rice method does work if your phone got splashed with water or fell in water and was taken out promptly.

Sorry about your misfortune, you will need to replace your phone. Thank you for trying Fixya!

N70 Fell in water, Only White Screen is Shown


Don't put the battery / power on. Take the phone to the mechanic / nokia service center on urgent basis. They will remove the remnents of the water and salt over the circuit.
If the problem is still not solved, either the power supply or the motherbaord will require a replacement.

WET


Hi,

There is a good chance that the phone will work once dried...but make sure it is totally dry (try to absord all water ad give it a few days to dry out) before attempting to turn on. If you take it part and dry out the parts...even better.
