I have a strange problem.
Okay, first of all, I did spill a very small amount of soda on my phone while it was closed. However, I took out the battery, wiped it down and after drying over night it was fine for two days.
Then for the next two days it would turn on, display the correct time/wallpaper/amount of messages, AND receive calls, but as soon as I touched a button on the keypad it would turn off.
Then, for the next three days it worked fine again. Now for the last three days it has reverted back to it's old problems. I have tried drying it out, etc. but nothing is improving it. What's the deal?? I know it has liquid damage, but it still seems strange...

Re: Water Damaged Razr V3
What occurs with liquid damage is a cemical reaction. the fluid and the electicity create an alckaline which looks a lot like mould but acts like acid. when this happens it eats away at the components in the phone and eventually the phone dies or the prob persist until you just can't stand it anymore.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Let me say, up front, that I am not a printer guru. My background is in biomedical electronics, but this procedure works in most applications. Take distilled water and pour a small amount into the area where the soda was spilled. Wait a few minutes to allow the water to dissolve the dried soda. Then pour in more distilled water to flush out the residual soda. Allow to dry. The water should rinse out the soda, and when it dries it will leave no contaminates of its own. This procedure works well on medical devices such as telemetry transmitters and cell phones that have been spilled on. I hope this helps. Thanks for asking Fixya. Dan
Did you saw the tea entering on the main motherboard? Did it worked after tea spilled in it? Water or any solution which contains water in it, which have short circuit on electronic boards, so it might had been damaged. Other important thing is, the computer motherboard contains microchip which is most likely to get damaged in small presence of small amount of water entering in it. So think twice about the amount of spill and then apply some idea, is the technician giving right diagnose, or you need another tech for this problem?
Or you ma be use your previous one assuming you could remove the moisture trapped inside the phone. In order to take out all moisture
trapped in the phone: Dry the phone, battery, sim card, any accessory, etc. with
cloth and wrap each piece, phone and accessories, in newspaper. Place
a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped phone in
the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice
with your phone because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the
phone. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the
bag open) at least 24 hrs.
