Help my sidekick lx had water damage and wont turn on!


try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

Remove the battery. Place it in a bowl full of white rice to whick away the moisture. Wait 24 hours and try again.
By using it before the phone is dry, it can cause permanent damage to the device!

My phone was dropped in water, it can make calls the outter screen works but the inner screen doesn't, I love my phone I wish it would work! What do I do? I can recieve messages but I can't see them


have you tried to "dry" it? remove the battery and back cover and place the phone in a jar, then fill it with rice and put the lid on it. in a couple of days, remove it and reinstall the battery to see if it works. it worked for my daughter's sidekick, but we did this immediately without powering it up as the water would cause damage.

Sidekick ID ??Water Damage??


I had the exact same problem with my sidekick. I believe that tm is taking advantage of their customers and charging for defective phones using a phoney water damage claim. I will never sign with tm again. I am going to call the manufacturer of the sidekick-just to *****.
