Do not give up on the phone. rice is a "fair" idea but take the back off your phone ( 2 small screws near the charging port ) and look at the board.it will have residue from the dampness. use a cotton bud and small brush to clean it off untill the board is clean again. if this dose not fix the problem you could try a new dock connector ( quite easy to change ) and if that dose not solve your problem leave it in a draw for a few weeks ...ive known dead water damaged iphones suddenly come back to life after being stood a while

My LG IS620 wont turn on because i dropped it in water what can i do to fix it?


Did you try removing the battery and wiping everying down in and out with rubbing alcohol and then let the phone sit in the rice for 24 hours?

Other than that, my only suggestion would be to open the phone apart and clean all the parts inside and make sure everything is dry.

Dropped phone in cup of water what can I do.


If it has a battery you can take out, take it out. Keep the phone in a warm dry place and do the dry rice thing again for about 3 days before putting the battery back in.
Good luck

Does putting your phone in rice work after it fell in water?


Yes, it does! If you have dropped your phone in water, completely submerging your SIM Card and Phone in rice will cause the rice to absorb the water in your phone. Your phone will work after a couple of hours of being in rice.

I dropped my phone in water, then I put it in rice after that my screen did'nt come on, what do I do?


Wet Cell Phone
Immediately remove the phone from the water,turn off the cell phone remove the battery and SIM card. When you have driedthe cell phone by putting in a warm sunny place for several days or in front ofa warm fan heater for several hours then reassemble the phone. Hopefully itwill work properly but if does not work then it is faulty and you need a newcell phone.

I have a samsung SCH-U520 and I dropped it in water


If your device gets covered in water, act fast and rationally, and you may be able to save your device.

1. DO NOT TRY TO TURN IT ON
2. Pull out the battery.
3. Please your device and battery into a bowl of uncooked rice to absorb any moisture.
4. Please it in a warm, dry place where it can receive direct sunlight.
5. Be patient. It is recommended that you leave it in there for at least 48 hours.
6. After 48 hours, put the battery back in and power on.

try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

I drop my phone centro palm into water! I charge the phone and the red light turns on but my phone wont turn on at all. What can i do


Get a bowl of rice. Remove the battery from the phone. Leave the phone back open. Put phone and battery in the bowl of rice, cover and leave overnight.

The rice will hopefully soak up any water inside the phone and battery. If this doesn't work there may be permanent damage to the phone from the water and charging afterwords.

Don't turn it on. Take battery off. Put in a bowl or bag of dry white rice, Leave for 3 days. If you are lucky it will be ready to charge and like new after the rice pulls the moisture out.
