That is your bet. The rice trick. Id keep it in there for 36 hours. It will either work or not work after that period. If there is still water in there then might have to order a new unit. As for the battery I would have put that in rice too. Ya never can be too safe when it comes to water damage. If the battery did get damaged during the water incident then a new battery would likely need to be ordered.

But you are doing the right thing with the rice. Goodluck.

I have a golf buddy that lose it charge after about 11 holes can I replace the batteries?


I also had the same problem of the battery not lasting a whole round. I found out that if the unit was left for any length of time after it had been fully charged, it would start to discharge even though it was turned off. I now make sure that if I'm playing golf the next day I will put it back on charge overnight.
this has worked successfully for the last 5 months approx
i also looked to find a replacement battery but without success
hope this helps

Wet will no work


Take the battery out, open all openings and put entire unit and battery in an airtight bag or bowl of rice for 48 hours. The rice will absorb all the moisture. If luck is on your side it will work again. I have done this with two different cell phones and had success. Hope it works for you.

Ok my phone was in my little sisters bag and it got wet now my end buttons dont work and my front screen dosent work plus when i put it on charge it shuts off and i will press a butten and it truns off...


Hello,

the phone is misbehaving because there is still water on the panel. Its not good to leave the phone on as it might damage because of the water.

Remove the battery from the phone, get a phone screw driver, open up the phone, remove the phone panel, dry it under an electric bulb or sunlight, allow the panel heat very well so the water will dry up completely from it.

After heating, allow the panel cool, before you couple the phone back. And do not dry the screen as that will damage it.

Once you have this done you phone should work well again.

Take care.

Cell phone was wetted and now i have water condensed on the display screen (inside). how can i pop out the display to dry off the water?


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.
