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

Your battery is probably bad. take out the battery and plug it up and try to turn it on without the battery in. if it works just replace the battery. if not then your phone is fried.

    Replacing the battery should make it work, but when that happened to me and I replaced the battery the water killed my speaker and vibration. Other than that it worked fine.

Here is the procedure to take out all moisture trapped in the phone: Dry the phone, battery, any accessory, etc. with cloth and wrap each piece, phone and accessories, in newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped phone in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your phone because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the phone. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs.

My ipod was in my bag and a water bottle emptied into my purse. The ipod with in a skin, which was wet. I am unable to get anything on my ipod, the screen is black and will not turn on. It will not...


Try putting the Ipod in a ziploc bag with some uncooked rice. The rice will absorb any moisture still trapped inside. Leave it for a few days and it might work again. It depends on how long it stayed wet. It worked with my son's Ipod after he jumped into a swimming pool with the Ipod in his pocket. Good Luck

My pantech matrix got wet and won't stay on or make calls.


You can try to let it dry out in the sun for a day or so. Take off the cover, battery, sim card, etc. so water does not stay trapped. Try again in a couple of days. If it still doesn't work, it's not going to.

Pantech Matrix was in my pocket when I jumped in the lake


Ours barely got wet and constantly says "check battery" then acts likes it's completely discharged and turns itself off. Plugging it in while off gives the charging indicator.

I'll report back on what happens when it shows fully charged.

I've dried my wet phones by putting them on the dash of a closed car on a warm/hot day that seems to be the most thorough way to dry them. This one didn't get that treatment due to an over anxious kid so i may have to do that tomorrow.

Dropped Pantech Matrix in water


it's probably going to be really expensive to repair it if there is major damage. but i got in the pool with my matrix in my pocket and i dried it out and it wont turn on with the battery in it(it's bad i know) but if i take it out and plug it up it works fine but i cannot call, or text. it wont connect to a network. i dont know whether or not i should invest in a battery which isn't that pricey at all or just get a new phone. i'm just not sure if a new battery will fix the problem.

Pantech Matrix water damage T-T


honestly within the past two days I have gotten my matrix soaked...once in the shower and then my boyfriend threw it in the toilet when we were playing around. the first time I used aerosoft keyboard cleaner and sat in on the vents on top of my tv. The second time I wasn't at home so I filled a bag up with rice and silica bags and then turned it on the next day and it's working fine...I just get this random beep every now and then. And I can see moisture in the corner of the screen. My phone has been through hell. Just do what you think is best and go for it. Not in the freezer though...BIG NO NO
