I forget my LG Vu (CU920) was in my pocket and I jumped in the pool. I was in the pool for about 10 minutes before I realized. It was full of water. I took the battery out as soon as I realized it. HERES HOW I FIXED IT!!!!!!!!!

Step 1- I took it home, removed the screws on the back panel, and removed it. Now the entire back casing was off.

Step 2- I put the phone and battery (separate) in a bowl of uncooked rice. Sounds crazy but this absorbs all of the water. I left it in there for 2 days.

Step 3- After 2 days, I put the battery back in and everything turned on. Only problem was there was a big bubble in my LCD screen. I then took the phone apart further by popping of the front casing of the phone. I then try to get underneath the LCD to air it out, but I accidentally broke the LCD screen (inside the phone...not plastic outer screen).

Step 4- I went online and purchased a new LCD screen for around $40 from a cel phone parts website. I got it and installed it which was not too hard. You just have to remove all the visible screws (i believe there are 6) from the back side. Then pop off the front cover and the rest is pretty obvious.

Step 5- Put it all back together and it all worked again!

Step 6- My battery soon died after of all this...Im guessing from the water damage. I bought a new one online for around 20 bucks. Now the phone is good as new.

All in all spent 60 bucks and revived the Vu from water damage!!!!!!!!!

Sometimes when electronics are dropped in water, you can still use the. Circut boards have a silicon coat over the circut boards for instances like this. Depending on how long it was in the water, you may be able to still use it. Let the phone dry out for about 24 hrs (take out battery and back cover) then try to replace the battery and start it back up. If it doesnt turn on the circuts were affected and it broken.

The screen touch of the lg viewty k990 is no more working, only the three buttons beneath work, what can i do to fix the problem


Was water spilled on the phone? Was it dropped recently? If something happened you might have to take the phone in to a BestBuy for a repair. If this is due to no external damage, water or dropping the phone, you should call LG customer service as they might have a direct download to fix the software of the phone. Should it be hardware related, consult your warranty. Good luck!

My env3 was dropped in a pool about 6 months ago. til this day, it will only show the verizon start up and thats it. what should i do to make it work again?


I deal with these type of situations here at the shop daily. My advice is, put it on eBay and sell it for parts. Let the buyer know it has water damage.

The cost to replace the phone would be less than the cost to repair it. And, repairing it doesn't mean that the same problem won't reoccur a week or two afterward.

The phone is only good for parts now.

these o rings are model specific. you need to go to your local intex dealer with the model number, and they can supply. use a silicon based lubricant on the new ring, that will help preserve it. good luck!

Hello,
the emegency download is for updating the phone's ROM. (at least that is what I use it for...)
take the battery out of the phone, and put it in a bag of rice for a couple days. that should dry it out, and then try again.

I hope this helps!

LG Dare dropped in Pool


Just put it in a bag of rice for couple of weeks. The rice pulls all the water or wetness out of the phone. How do I know, Well I found a brand New Lg Dare phone in a puddle, put it in rice for 2 1/2 months. I took it out of the bag, put it together, turn it on. To my amazement it worked. Ran to store, bought a charger, and it has worked every day since.

My pump pressure is 10psi i cleaned the de filters they seem fine i have good floe out of my jets but when i hook the pool cleaner up pressure drops to almost nothing. could my impeller be the problem


The pressure you are reading is the pressure in the filter tank as water is pumped though it. When the filter is freshly charged, 9 PSI is a good pressure.

As the filter removes particles from the water the filter gets "dirty" -- it takes more pressure to push the water through it thus raising the PSI.

I think you are viewing this in reverse. Low filter pressure is "good" (as long as it stays above 8 PSI) -- as the filter cleans the water the PSI will increase -- when it gets to 15-20 PSI it needs to be back-washed and recharged.

The pressure drops when the pool cleaner is connected because pool cleaners always pull in air (in varying amounts) because of all the hose connections. This causes your filter/tank pressure to drop.
