You would typically want to dry the camera off completely and then seal it in a zip lock bag with rice or some otther dessicant to absorb the moisture. Odds are that the camera has been destroyed or will quit working soon as the rust and corrosion expands across the internal components and circuit boards.

My phone was submerged in water for about 90 seconds. Will it still work and how long should I wait before trying it?


You should probably wait for a few days to ensure it's completely dry on the inside. I have heard other folks suggest that putting the phone in a bowl of white rice for a few days is a great way to dry it out. The rice will absorb the moisture.


Did the case cover the entire phone or just the sides and back like most?

Sony camera LCD screen has moisture water damage


First off, try not to use the device while there is any form of moisture still present. Second, if there is in fact still moisture trapped inside of the camera, a very common place fix to resolve this is to bury the electronic device in a bowl of dry white rice (Minute Rice) for a day. Rice has the tendency to extract and absorb moisture from items.
Otherwise you can always send it in to Sony for repair.

Dropped phone in toilet 3 seperate times and it was fine until the third time. it worked fine until 5 hours alter and wont come on now?


It sounds like you've been very lucky in the past! Usually when a phone gets exposed to liquid, it immediately and irreparably damages the phone. In this scenario it seems that the water hadn't reached a critical part of the phone yet, when it did, the phone stopped working. See if your carrier offers accidental damage replacement and go from there. If they don't then try sticking your phone in a bag of rice for a day or 2. This will absorb moisture from the phone and hopefully allow it to work. Otherwise you will have to replace your phone! I hope this helps, please don't forget to rank my answer! Have a great day!

I had left it in my pocket in my clothes and didnt know and it got all wet how do i fix it


My suggestion, I learned recently, is to place the device in a bowl of uncooked rice.

The Rice will absorb any liquids from inside.

Wet DS


Rice can do miracles when used to absorb water, for this reason it is commonly used for this purpose, have you ever seen some rice in a salt saker and wondered why it was there? salt goes bad when it gets wet, so it absorbs the moisture from the air. Just ensure its raw rice, and not cooked.
Give it a day or two in the rice and wish it luck, unless you happen to have the custom screw driver required to open it up and dry it. Don't turn it on in the mean time. By turning on a wet device you run the risk of short circuiting it if you haven't already done so.

If your BlackBerry 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.

Phone fell in the toilet and need method to dry.


Remove the battery, do NOT try and power it on. Get a bowl and pour some rice into it, place the phone in it and let dry for a few days.

If you try and power it on while there is ANY water left inside it, you can short it out and ruin it permanently. This is the best known method, but is not guaranteed to work.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Motorola - E6 Smart Phone fell in water for 2-3 seconds.


First of all, do not turn it on. Take out the battery, and completely dry the phone before trying to use again.
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.
