Question about LG RUMOR Cellular Phone

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.

Cricket phone screen goes white


You could try and have it repaired but most likely the damage has already been done to the phone so no guarantee it's even fixable. I'd get a new phone maybe one of the water proof one's :)

Hi, if you have done all these process after your phone fell into water and the screen is still white, then you obviously have a bad screen which needs replacement.....

Screen is white. it turns on and off when battery


Either you accidentally dropped and spoilt your phone or water had managed to seep through. Try opening and get your phone screen out to wipe it clean (if you dare). Sometimes the connection can be bad from your phone to your screen if it's wet or dusty inside.

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.

My phone keeps turning on by itself even though it's already on. And the screen will contiuely turn white, especially when i slide the phone to start texting.


it sounds like either the screen is burned out or you dropped it in water or it got wet try getting a new battery and then try turning it back on it should work if not take to your local resaller they should be able to fix it for you if this doesn't work
