Question about Samsung Cell Phones

1 Answer

I had water spilled on my phone, and that day the screen went white and stopped working, then it fixed itself, but now it makes a weird cracking sound in the earpeice, and when it charges, and also it barely holds a charge I have to charge it multiple times a day, is this problem easily fixed by a new battery, or is it an internal problem, and should I look at a new phone?

You would be better served to get a new phone. Getting a cell phone wet is almost alway death to the electronics. Even if the phone dry out completely, The problems caused by the damp electronics will cause strange and intermittent problems.

    Cell phones do not recover gracefully from getting wet internally. The electronics were not made to get wet.

White screen on samsung sch-r450 messenger frm water damage


the only possible thing you could do yourself is to remove the screws, pull it apart and try to blow dry. That's the only thing you can personally do.

Water damage/charging problem


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

Wet Phone - White Screen


I figured it out. I went to tons of websites before I figured it out. you need to order a new flex cable for your phone (only cost about $8 from the website I got it at, which is a lot better than paying $50 or more for a new phone) make sure it's the one that goes to your phone. Once you get it you can install it yourself, just be careful and make sure you pay attention to where it all goes, it shouldn't be too hard. I haven't gotten mine yet but I'm already positive it's going to work, tons of other people have this problem and fixed it this way.

My phone displays a white main screen


My Solution: Heat it up by just sitting on it or holding it in your hands// Take the battery out and back in/ Try keeping the battery out of it for a full day
My Story :) My mom dropped the phone in the dishes because she was drunk haha, I quickly took out the battery, but when the next day came by I looked at the phone and saw the same problem everyone here has. I kept replacing the battery on the hope it would just magically fix itself. Now 2 days from when it dropped in water, I kept flipping it, replaced the battery again (just taking it out and back in) after I sat on it a while, possibly the heat somehow helped it to work again.. I'm amazed it works haha, it was in the water fully submerged for half a min when I had to snatch it out of the dishes But, it is most likely that I took the battery out, the battery is the thing that ruins electronics, just remember to take it out if you drop it in water. Good luck. If worst comes to worst and your going to buy a new phone, maybe try using a blow dryer on it for a little bit **or just do this in the first place**

Screen


Can you see water inside the LCD? if you can have a professional clean it out for you. If not, try replacing your battery because if it somehow got wet too then water does more damage to the battery than the rest of the phone. if it's still not working reply here and I'll help further
