Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

2 Answers

Phone got wet

Fell in the sink for a split second. Fine for the first few minutes, then displayed a window that said it wouldn't charge (or something). I plugged it into a charger and it displayed a strange window: white with a bar running through the middle with an exclamation point in a circle. An hour later when I unplugged it, it looked like it was booting up, but then shut down because of zero battery charge.

Is it toast?

Thanks!

Yes, try drying out your phone by taking the phone apart, especially under the keyboard pad.

I would definately let it dry out fully. Take the battery out and take it apart as much as you can and place in front of a fan (probably overnight). If there was water in the phone when you plugged it in it could permanently damage the phone. Even though the outside is dry, there could still be some water inside. I once had a remote control in a swimming pool overnight and followed these instructions and it worked fine after a couple days of drying. Hope this helps!

My phone fell.in the sink


It might work again if you're able to open up anything that you can open up... and allow to sit in a warm, dry place for a few hours. If you're able, it might help in drying to remove the battery. As you're trying to dry it out, you might want to turn it so that the keys are down. Maybe some moisture will drop out of it. It's an "iffy" deal. Might work... or might not...

This isdue might caused by a faulty battery or charger.

Try using another charger and see if problem exist. If not, try replacing your phone's battery.

The charge adapter maybe faulty.
If your cell phone is a few months old, then it would be still under warranty. Take it back to the place where you purchased it and have it repaired or replaced under warranty.

A battery function requiring power charge. Provide the phone a full system charge about 45 minutes should store original phone capacity to handly entire functionality pass the power on a few seconds display mode. check on the phone saver or background display and lightening settings.

Use genuine battery


keep your phone on the heater for a few days .I had the same problem with my e65 but worse.it was in the washing machine and i found the phone soaking wet.so straight away i got a dry towel and wiped it and left it for a few days.3 days later it was working fine.

so why don't you try it ,it worked for me so hopefully it works for you

Sidekick 2008 got wet


I dropped a phone in the toilet once, a T-mobile phone. it took a couple of days for it to dry out completely. Then I snapped it back together, and it was fine. Being that yours just got wet, and not immersed is different though, so you may want to take it into T-mobile and see if they can check it out for you because then you will know for sure what is going on. Good luck.
