When you obtained water damage to your phone you should have immediatly taken the battery out and put both battery and the phone in a bowl of rice and sealed it.

This would allow the rice to draw out the moisture from inside the phone. This would have to be done for at least 24-48 hours to work properly.

Even if you do it exactly like that its still not 100% certain to work.
The phone already sounds to have been damaged hence the random message on the screen.

Your only real option is to replace the phone as repairing a phone these days is not cost effective. Post back with any questions or comments for further assistance.

Glass water was spilt on it, emerceny download


Listen you must take it immediately to the shop to get it repaired. This says LG if i'm not mistaken so take it to the LG service centre or any good shop because only someone really good can now save your phone. It takes about a week or two for the clogged water to start rusting the components. It's going to happen for sure as the water will not evaporate. The worst thing is your phone will look like it's working fine for a while and a few minor gliches here and there and just when you feel your phone has salvaged the day something will happen. It happened to my moto rokr e8. I dropped coffee on it and after 10 days the screen just went blank. So go to a service centre and say liquid/water damage and see if it can be repaired before it's too late.

Hello,
the emegency download is for updating the phone's ROM. (at least that is what I use it for...)
take the battery out of the phone, and put it in a bag of rice for a couple days. that should dry it out, and then try again.

I hope this helps!
