LG Dare water damage

I have an LG Dare with water damage. It has been in rice for a while. I still can not turn it on and I was wondering if the battery might need recharging or if the phone is completely dead.

If the phone is not completely dry when you turn it on, it will usually ruin it. If you are really lucky, the battery contacts corroded and your phone will work if you clean them.

I have rescued phones from water damage before by disassembling the phone and removing the battery and then drying the phone completely before trying to turn it on.

I'd start looking for a new phone. You can still use your old one for the parts and accessories.

I wish that I could have given you a solution that makes your phone work again.

Thanks,

Tim

How long has your phone been in rice? 2 days? that is how long it is supposed to be in rice. you could try recharging the battery for how ever long it takes for it to load. but those phones are pretty delicate so unfortunately there is a good chance its gone.

I washed my LG phone in the washing machine, what can I do?


Hello,

The first step is to leave your phone alone! DO NOT try to turn your wet cell phone on. Turning on your wet phone can permanently damage the circuitry.

Next step is find a bag of rice, preferably white. White rice can absorbs the most water. Ensure that you have enough bag of rice to completely submerge your wet cell phone.

Now, place your wet cell phone into the bag of rice. Place the phone in the middle of the bag so that you can no longer see your wet cell phone.

Next, place your bag of rice in a dry and warm place. I left my bag of rice in the back of my car on a hot day.

Leave your bag of rice to sit for several hours. I left my bag of rice in the back of my car for 8 hours. After time has elapsed, you can finally pull out your cell phone and try to turn on your phone.

Good luck!

I dropped my lg dare in the toilet. it was on and i couldn't take the battery out. that was last night and now i finally managed to take the battery out so it's out drying in the sun. what should i do for...


To get the *best* chance of having your phone (especially a touch screen) to work after being submerged in water, you need PATIENCE.

Generally, the phone doesnt die when it first goes in the water. It usually dies when the user tries to start the phone too soon, before it's dried out.

The fastest drying method i've seen is to get a small tupperware (sealable) container, and completely submerge the phone in white dry rice. Seal the container, separate the battery, take off the cover, and get as much exposure to the rice as you can.

The rice keeps the air dry inside the container, and will pull moisture out of the phone faster than air drying. Leave it there for at least 2 days. At least 2. Hope that helps!

PS - You will *probably* need a new battery, generally batteries are damaged by even a small amount of moisture. You might as well buy a new battery.

Try putting in a bowl of rice for at least over night, if the problem can be solved by just drying it out the rice will **** up the moister.

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.

You can buy a new water proof touch screen online and you will be able to go to a Verison store and have them install it for you. Also put the phone in a zip-lock bag full of uncooked rice for several weeks. Make sure the battery and phone are in the bag seperately.
