Question about HTC Desire 510 4G No-Contract Cell Phone

1 Answer

I dropped my phone in water. I got it out immediately and took the battery. It came on twice but went back off and now won't turn on at all. I've taken it apart and it's been sitting and drying for 6 or 7 hours but still won't come back on. Is there anything I can do to get it back on?

Testimonial: "I did take the battery out immediately. I didn't try turning my phone on until I though it was dry but I took the battery right back out when I noticed water coming out my phone still. But I've had it apart and drying since then. Is it still probably not going to work?"

Engine won't start, starter makes rattling sound


sounds like the battery disharged. If the key was on along with the lights than 20 minutes would be enough to drain the battery. Try a jump start. it should get you going. I would have the battery tested after driving for at least an hour at highway speeds just to make sure it is good.

My Android Fusion was dropped in water and now won't turn on


Sometimes these things take a while to dry out before they perform the way they're supposed to. Stick it in rice for a few days more. I've had luck with placing it near NOT ON a heat source to aid in drying it out. You don't want to scorch the thing, but leave it in the rice for a couple more hours to days & see how that goes. You should be up and running in no time.

Really!....you've dropped your camera "countless" other times and now you're concerned because this time, it won't turn on!!! You're not sure what else to do?!!! How about not dropping your camera. How about using the wrist strap. Your dropping luck has run out...your camera does not have nine lives.

Absolutley EVERYTHING still works just blank screen after dropping in water.


If you put it in water, immediately shut the phone off, pull the battery, sim card (if applicable) and put everything in a bowl of white rice for a few days. The white rice should remove the device enough so everything should be usable.
I've also heard that immediately freezing the phone works too, your choice.

I've had this happen twice, both times when I tried to quit during a long web page download. Just taking the battery out briefly won't help though. It has to be out for somewhere between 12 and 24 hours. Probably there's a capacitor or a small battery that has to drain in order to reset some volatile memory.

I dropped my phone in the toilet. I took out the battery and let it dry. When i turned it back on the screen just says downloading error v5.50. I dont know what this means or how to fix my phone


Hello my friend,if the phone`s board is oxidized now there is nothing you can do anymore.You should immediately open your mobile unplug everything and try to dry everything with a hairdressers gun and leave the battery and the Sim card out for some hours when you dropped it into the water.Also make sure that Sim card and battery is completely dry before install it again.The only thing you can try is to go to your manufacture support site and download the latest firmware and reinstall it.

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!

Maybe rzr v3m; black screen after dropping phonein water


you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

V3 got wet


sorry to say this but a wet phone is ruined. You will have to take it to a tech at your phone server. They will either repair it or you will have to get another one. Water and phones do not go together at all. Sux.
