Re: my phone dropped in the water

If you don't mind having a bit of a play you can open up the phone and you will then see exactly why it's not working.
give it a clean up with an Alcohol fluid like methelated spirits or similar and put it back together.
this may work but no guarantees as the damage may allready be too great

What should i do if i drop my phone in water?

try not to dry it with a blow-dryer, because it may burn it. try to open the phone and dry these different parts on an air, not on the sun bcause it may damage it. dont be afraid if some of the buttons doesnt work. they will continue working in sevral days, when they are dried complitely. :)

Dropped it in some do I dry it out

Use a blow dryer and then let it dry a few days before starting it, if that doesn't work the cell phone is ruined, which will be the case more than likely from what I have seen. Water and solid state circuits just don't mix.

Assalam o alaikum. my cell drop into water tommorrow next day working right.but now many of buttons are not working??? what i can do for this? Thanks

Number 1 rule if your phone gets wet... DO NOT turn it on.
Remove the battery from the phone. get a small ziploc freezer bag place phone in bag pour uncooked grains of rice into bag. Enough to cover phone completely. Close bag. Let it sit for at least 2 days.
This is to absorb all the moisture from the phone. Remove phone, insert battery and try using it. It may work. But you need to wait until your phone is completely dry before attempting to use it.

I dropped my phone in a tub of water and it was there for about 10 seconds because i didn't notice it at first. I wiped it dry, took out battery and sim card. The phone works and everything but the buttons...

What i would suggest is disassembling it and place in a warm room to remove any excess water, for about 2 hrs.Then find out whether it has survived.
If you have insurance on the phone that would be good to use it.

Dropped phone in puddle only screen is broken PLEASE HELP MEE!!!!

Unfortunately, I would suggest you not trying to fix this. The reason is once water gets inside, any of the parts that got wet will eventually corrode. It might work a day, a week, I actually had my phone work 2 months, then it will stop. You could replace the screen and have it work right away, but nobody could gaurantee that it will continue.

Water damage

1) Take the battery, sim card (SD card if there is one) out and dry
2)Dry the battery compartmant
3)For about 24 hours turn the phone upside down, or so the water will drip OUT
4) Then for about 2-3 minuets dry with a blow dryer, on low
5) YAY your cell phone SHOULD work, if not then the damage is serious

I got it wet!!

The first thing is to know if the phone dropped in salted or fresh water. If was in salted water, forget it, you let it pass so much time, but if was fresh water, try to open the phone ( get a Torx 6 or 8 screwdriver in home depot) and use pure alcohol with and old toothbrush and clean the mineral deposited on the circuits, gentle brush it and let it dry, then reasemble the phone a it will work perfect
