Question about Samsung Propel Cell Phone

1 Answer

My fiance dropped my propel in the toilet for about a minute. It was on and dripping water. I made him turn it off and take the battery and sim out of it. He dried it, and put it back together. It's been working but with it's share of problems. The main ones have went away but now, about 3 weeks after this happened, the screen has been messing up very badly and now it's completely white. What now?

Exposing the phone into water will cause problem to your phone. a corrosion inside of your phone might occurs that's why the screen messed up. I strongly suggest that you call Samsung hotline 1-800-726-7864 to fix your problem. Their representative will create a service ticket for you to be able to send it in for repair.

Toiliet Drips in bowl for a while after you flush


Check flapper out and adjust water level in tank to proper level. If you get level right and it still does drip it sounds like the flapper is not sealing correctly to shut off water.

Toilet flappers are not to expensive and you can touch it with your hand and if you get a black residue off on your hands that a sign it needs replacing.

Pretty new toilet seems to drip down the drane pipe after flush. Sounds like a little trickle as if there is too much water in the bottom an it is running out.


Sounds like the flapper isn't sitting properly. Take the lid off the tank and put a few drops of food coloring in it. Let it sit for a while (do not flush). If the water in the bowl turns that color, that means the flapper needs replacing. Simple to do and costs about 5 bucks. Good luck

Dropped my phone in the toilet and doesn't stay on now


Hey, it happens! Next time though, find a bottle of alcohol, remove the battery, and soak the phone in a bowl of rubbing alcohol for a few minutes. If alcohol isn't available, sink it in a bowl of water until you can find the alcohol- Bring it out of the alcohol, THEN break out the rice, etc.
I'd guess the logic switches are compromised, preventing the turn-off.

My samsung impression dropped in water and touch screen broke


I also dropped my Samsung Impression in the toilet, I immediately took the phone took the protective case off, took the battery cover off, and took the battery and my SIM card out and towel dried it as best as I could. Then I sat it on the floor next to my fan and let it dry until I got to my grandparents a little while later and I put it in a bowl of rice, completely covered the phone and battery with rice and left it sit overnight in the rice and all of the next day, so far i've had it on about 20 minutes and have had no problems with it so far, another solution is to sit it in the sun, to further dry it out. Water damage will void warranties on your phone and battery and your provider will know instantly if the damage was water related when they take your battery cover off, there is a small square sticker that when dry and hasn't touched water should be white, but as soon as it comes into contact with water it turns red, there is also one of these stickers on the battery. My stickers were red and after sitting in the rice they look like they got lighter in color considerably, I don't know if that is really possible but appearance wise it looks that way. I hope this helps anyone who has had this problem. Good Luck!

Water enters in my samsung propel


If you do happen to get water in it open the back of your phone where the sim card is there will be a red square, this indicates it was wet. If you do get damage then out the phone in rice. or just take the sim card out and the battery turn it off and let it sit on a rag for a few hours.

Dropped in the toilet..any ideas on how to bring it back to life?


Hi there.... I have had many cell phones that have got wet and stopped working and every time I had to take out the battery and sim card, lay on side for at least 12 to 24 hours and they all came back to life. I don't think the freezer is the best idea.

That has always worked for me. Did you call customer/tech support for your carrier?
