I had my g1 phone onthe tableand my accidentally spilled water on it,i quickly dried it off andit continue to workfine. about a hour later my battery began to die and it completely shut off so i just plugged it in to the charger as i normally do once i did that the screen came up in red green and blue with yellow writting and it says serial10 on a whiteline i even tried restarting the whole phone whhat shouldi do i dont wann lose all mycontacts or pictures neither.
Your phone booted up into the g1 bootloader screen, if you want to be able to use the phone again you will have to probably push the rc29 recovery.img then manually upgrade back to whatever rom you are on
P.S you will lose your pictures but you wont lose your contacts because once you sign in to gmail on the phone it automatically retrieves the contacts that were on the phone

Do not power it up. If only water it will eventually dry out but beer is sticky and requires proper cleaning. Maybe take apart, rinse with water to remove residues and allow to dry thoroughly covered in rice to aid drying. However if it was on when the spill happened it may well be fried.
You mentioned that it still vibrates but that is a function on the baterry, you mentioned that you do not see anything on the LCD screen anymore at this point, If I may ask how long ago did your HTC g1 fall in the water? letting it sit down for a couple days and have it dry may not be an option to see if it will work or not, also having to turn it ON and not sure if the insides are already dry is as well not advisable turning the unit ON may cause the system to short if it is still wet from the inside.
I suggest that you bring the unit to a local service center that can service your HTC G1, the unit may already have experienced a short on the LCD the reason why you do not see anything on it at all.
I do not have details nor the manual to repair or open your HTC not even online.
Follow these procedure to save or revive your phone,
remove Cell Phone from Water: Time is of the essence when it comes to
saving a fixing a submerged cell phone, as soon as you see your phone in
water, remove it quickly! Every second matters do this step quick.
the Battery: In order to save the battery on your cell phone
after it's been wet, quickly take the battery out of the phone as soon
as you take it out of the water. Buy doing this you will ensure that
minimal damage is done to your battery.
Drying the Phone Out:
Quickly shake your cell phone to get all of the
water out and reach for the paper towels. Press down on your cell phone
to make sure all of the excess water has come out. If you have
accessories such as cell phone covers, take them off promptly otherwise
water will still be stuck in your phone.
Saving your Info: If
your cell phone takes a SIM card, quickly remove it
before the phone dries. While you may still loose some of your
information, you won't lose it all if you take the SIM card out of your
cell phone in time
.Removing Excess Moisture: To remove the
unseen moisture in your cell
phone you will need to cover it with either Desiccant gel packs or rice.
Desiccant gel packs can sometimes be found when purchasing brand new
shoes or clothes. Make sure your cell phone is completely covered with
either one of these for up to 3 hours.
Vacuuming: Take your
vacuum hose and place it up to 4 inches away from
your cell phone with it on. While this won't remove all of the water, it
will certainly eliminate the big spots of water damage.
the Phone On: After allowing your cell phone to sit a day or two
with the power off, turn it on to see if it works. More than likely if
you followed these steps as soon as your phone was submerged, it will
cut on. If not, you will have to purchase a new cell phone because the
one you have can't be saved.
Depends on how much water was spill on the phone will determine if it will be okay. You should wipe off the water with a towel, then open the back of phone and put it to dry near a fan do not put it near any heat.
Hi, I see things like this all the time in my shop, however 99% are totally ruined. You see the instant any water and the printed circuit board and components leads come in contact with water there is an instantaneous chemical reaction, and that alone is bad, bit if the unit is ON, at the time of water contact, current goes all which ways and gets to parts it should not do so normally as it flows through the easier path, the water, this then destroys the delicate IC's inside, and results in a totally wrecked thing. I have stripped them down, cleaned them off, gone over them, even with,some my own, that I have got to, within seconds... but no matter what you do short of replacing every board and device again, it simply isn't a practicable option I am sorry. Sometimes you get lucky, but if ever it gets a proper "Dunking" and water gets to the circuit boards, it usually is a total write off.
when ever your phone has been submerged, u must always turn it off straight away, take the back off and allow to dry for several days, do not put in tumble dryer! if a problem still persists then yes u will have to change circuit board, could be very costly, could also try ebay
I dropped my motorola sliver in the bathtub full of water and it quit working totally. I called ATT where I got the phone and they told me to look under the battery. I lifted out the battery and they asked me if there was a white dot under it. I told them no but there was a red one. They said "gone". Meaning that the dot was usually white but if it turns red, the circuits are water/liquid damaged and to throw it away and get another phone. Look under your battery.
I think you still have a good (not 100%) chance of saving it. It usually takes much longer than 1 day to dry out electronics that are still intact. I would open it up and let it dry. Otherwise, see if have a nerdy friend who has access to a non-humidified incubator and leave it in there for a few days. (that's how I salvaged a phone that went through the wash!)
