Re: dropped in toilet

The problem with this make of phone it is difficult to take apart but it sounds like you have a corroded board where the buttons are this will need cleaning as with the battery it might need replacing have you let the battery go totally flat so their is no power in it at all then charge from flat you are supposed to do this every couple of months to prolong the life of the battery i would sugest you dont take phone apart yourself as you could warp the board and the phone would be irripairable hope this is some help to you good luck.....................................

I had dropped my galaxy 4 in the toilet it dried out put a new battery in and it came on and it asked something about oc press volume up or reset down and I pressed down but it seem like it was takin

Your phone is turning on, which is good. What you saw sounds like 'download mode' which allows one to download new software onto the phone. It is accessed by pressing 'home', power and 'volume down' at the same time. Did you do that by mistake?
You can try a factory reset to reset your phone, which may help.
This will delete all your apps and settings and sms messages. It shouldn't delete your photos or music on your sd card, so don't worry.

1. take out the battery and charger
2. Put the battery in. Your phone still be off for the next step:
3. Hold 'Volume up' and home at the same time.
4. DO NOT LET GO, and hold Power. You should now be holding down all 3 buttons
5. You will see 'recovery' in the top-left corner of the phone. When you see this, let go of the buttons.
6. Press the volume up/down keys to navigate the menu and highlight 'wipe data/factory reset'
7. press the Power button to select this option.
8. When that finishes, do the same for the wipe cache option
9. Then do the reboot option
10. Wait for your phone to reboot and reset.

If you are still having problems, then take your phone to a Samsung store for repair.

Good luck!

Take out the battery from it immediately. Contact the authorized service center. Hot-air treatment to internal circuit board is necessary.

Hi, I have a problem with my battrey phone, the battrey does not last takes about one day or two days. Sony Ericsson Experia X10 kind regards, Lungile Mbuyeleni

Ifthe cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

My LG cell phone was dropping into the toilet bowl, I picked it up and all got back to normal after I dried it up. However, the '0" button was not working and no response. Can someone help me?

It is likely an electrical short. You can try burying your phone in a bag of rice (dry, of course) to **** out any more moisture. I've also heard of people putting their phones in the freezer though I have not tried this myself

If this doesn't work there's not much you can do besides taking it in to the dealer. Say it was rained on or the button quit working by itself.. not that you dropped it in a toilet.. and you're likely to get off cheaper or even free

I have a Nokia E71 phone and my kid dropped it in to water tub and then we removed battrey in it immediatly and then wiped with a cloth and did put infront of fan heater and then plugged in but still did...

This is not enough for a water damaged phone - take it to a phone repair shop and the water drops still can remain near the components of the motherboard.

The light on my ipod touch dose not turn on?

hold the sleep button for about 5-6 seconds and restart it. Try that a few times, and then if that does not work, connect it to the computer and hit the 'restore' button and see if it will restore the light. Try to charge it also, sometimes that will help.

I dropped my sidekick 2008 in the toilet

really the only thing to do in this case is to let it dry COMPLETELY before putting any power to it. if you let it dry completely now it may still work but if you tried it already and it failed i doubt it. try a new battery if it wont turn on. i dropped my nokia in the toilet and let it dry for 3 days then it worked; had a buddy spill his bottle of beer on my blackberry and after the defrost and over night it worked fine.... good luck
