My phone got wet when it was on, and when i turn it on, it vibrated and its screen turned white. Now it doesnt do anything. The water it was in was chlorine and it was immersed for about 5 minutes. I need to fix it and cant buy a new one. Could I just buy a new batterry? The phone is a samsung propel.

A similar thing happened to a nextel phone I used to have, i sat it down some place warm, it dried up and worked 100%...but I was lucky...Do you have insurance? if not, then your phone is probably destroyed...sorry...

My phone was left on my bike and the sprinklers got it alittle wet but it turned on but the touch screen doesnt work the strip near the battery is white i dont know if thats right or not and it vibrates...


You need to try Silica Gel Packets to dry out your phone. There was a good article on associatedcontent.com that explains how to dry a wet cell phone, iPods, or any electronics.

You need to place your cell phone in a zip lock bag with Silica Gel Packets. Silica Gel will remove all the moisture from the phone and its components, something air drying will not do!

Just Google "Silica Gel Packets" and you will find several companies selling these products. There is also a web site called: http://www.SilicaGelPackets.com that has them.

My phone got wet. it only shows a white screen now. it will turn on and the buttons work. but only white screen. i need to get my contact list out of the phone. help. lots and lots of numbers lost. ...


If the phone is working, and the only probkem is the screen, then try opening it up and dryin it. If this doesnt help, then, the connection (solder) betweent the board of the phone and the screen has been broken. You would have to melt off the solder attatched to it totally, and then re-solder it. This should help. If that still doesnt work - though it should - then you would have to consider purchasing another screen.
Success.

WHAT IS THE SOLUTION FOR N70 WHITE DISPLAY How to repair Nokia1100 phone when put the battery ,It doesn't ON, it is vibrating


hi, common problem with n70 white screen, i suggest you take it to a service centre, because it could be 1 of 2 problems, either the lcd is faulty, or, on the main board, there are 2 crystals that control the lcd, they need to be changed, but will be cheaper maybe just to buy a new phone,

as for the 1100, if it doesnt turn on and constantly vibrates, i have a feeling that the phone has liquid damage, and is shorting out.

My K810i phone doesnt turn on..


let it sit in the charger for 1hour then try to turn on your phone. it could be that the charger cannot charge the battery and turn on the phone at the same time and the battery is too weak to turn it on and needs a better charge.

It turns on but a blank white screen only shows


i had the same issue when my phone got slightly wet. try taking everything apart (sim card, battery, back). let them dry out for a little bit then after like a day or two put the phone back together. turn it on it will be a white screen for a little bit but give it like 2 or 3 mins and if should come back. I did this for my phone cuz i really needed the pictures off it and it worked! hopefully if will work for you too. GOOD LUCK!

Screen turns white when opened


Well what sometimes happens is your phone gets confused because when your cell phone is shut the screen doesnt go dark it is a plan white screen so what I think happend to your phone is that the sensor that is on your keypad is messed up somehow and thinks it is open when its shut.
The same thing happened to me before but my phone got wet.
