You can try removing the battery and put the phone and battery into a jar of uncooked rice for a couple of days. The rice will draw moisture away from things. This fix may or may not work but it is a trick worth trying. I've done it before and it did work; difference is, I did it within minutes of getting the phone wet. Other wise it will be replace the phone.

    Found another option I didn't know about before; from the reviews on it, it looks like it really does work. It's bu Kensington, called the Evap Pouch. You can get a multi use one for about $15

SOURCE: MOTO Q DROPPED IN WATER

well one thing you should always remember is to try and clean an electronic device with alcohol ,never turn on the phone right after the incident,the problem most of the times is the hardware and not the software as far as i know.

I dropped my Moto G and now the screen will not work. What do I do to restore it back to working order?


Erin-

If the LCD is broken then it won't work. If the glass is broken but the LCD is fine it should work but isn't safe. You can visit our site CONTACT US for repair options.

Take battery out of phone and let set overnight in a dry area such as oven. I have turned oven on to warm and then turned oven off and let phone set in there overnight with battery out of phone and back off of phone and then replaced battery and restarted phone and it did work again. Rich

White screen


did you drop it in water, ?did you press the screen to hard and cracked the lcd panel? those are the most common reasons, oh, and dropping it, and also dropping it in water. I would suggest going over all those possibilities.. open up the back of your phone and pull out the battery, in all phones now they have a water sensor dot, it remains white always unless the phone was damaged by water, and warranty doesnt cover water damage, look for that little white dot, if its red, that means you gotta get a new phone, and if you try peeling if off theyll know youre covering up water damage, unless you were able to somehow obtain another white color changing dot to put back in your phone now in the exact place it should be, but techs are very good at catching bluffs. but if that white is intact to begin with, your phone should be under warrenty of some sort, and that means they owe you a new one. bottom line. BOOM

My palm pixi screen is black and will not turn on. I have tried plugging it in, unplugging it, and pushing the power button (both for a long time - until I hear the phone make a sound, and as a quick push,...


Hi, problem can be solved.

Palm pixi cell phone has both a sliding phone and a straight phone.Which is yours?

Sliding Palm Pixi phone with a black screen is always caused by a thread like object inside the phone.
These threadlike object is connected to the phone board and is also connected to the screen. (makes the screen display). When it gets damaged or has a cut due to sliding of the phone, it makes the screen go black.

Straight Palm Pixi phone with a black screen can be caused, when the phone of the screen is damaged,might not be by the phone dropping on the flow,it might be an internal damage from factory (factory default).

I would advice if the phone is on guarantee,you can take the phone back to where you purchased the phone from fro them to replace it with another one.

Butplease,make sure you don't Tammper with the phone,sothat they can be able to replace it without any damage.


Hope ti helped

Thanks for using fixya.....

It looks like you need a new LCD/digitizer which you canreplace yourself. Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPhone. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to have somebody else do it for you there are third party iPhone Repair Services.
