Let it dry for a longer period. As, if the water has gone into the screen area, draining the water is a real issue. If it still doesnt respond, get it to a service station before the condition worsens.

Jacuzzi toilets installed one year ago - for the first year toilets filled up in a matter of seconds - now both toilets are taking up to 4-5 minutes to fill up the back tank. nothing has changed - why...


sounds like you may have debris in your lines. I was not aware of this until recently but, you should drain your water heater once a year to get rid of sediments that linger and travel through your lines causing possible blockage problems. Try turning your water valve off. Flush toilet so there is no water in the toilet or tank. Unscrew your line to shut off valve to make sure there's no debris. Good Luck!

I dropped my samung pixon in the toilet but i think all the water is out but it doesnt turn on


DO NOT try to turn it on and DO NOT use a hari dryer (it'll push moisture into unreachable places) Put your phone in a bag of rice and leave it there for a day or 2 (rice absorbs moisture) Try turning it on again... If this doesnt work , nothing will !
Please leave me a rating if I've helped you :)

I didnt drop it into the water..i think the vapors just got into the G1.is there anything i can do ?


try running a hair dryer over it (not directly, but waving it over the phone) or placing it over a heat vent. be sure to turn it off first. my wife dropped her iphone in the toilet, and we were able to save it using this method.

My g1 fell in the toilet and i just got a new one with my insurance yesterday cus the old one broke now this new one fell in the toilet i blowdried it for an hour but it still wont work please tell me some...


Stop putting the battery in and in fact take it out for a few days. You need silica gel packets or some other dessicant. Uncooked wric in a ziplock bag can also work but a stronger dessicant will work better.

Blow dryers are also bad as they can melt the glue on the circuit boards. So stop doing that.

My phone fell in the toilet idk what to do!!


I am not sure if this will help but here goes anyway. I assume you immediately removed the phone from the toilet when it fell in. Here is what I did in a similar circumstance. My wife once dropped her car keys and remote in the toilet while she was at work. Once she got home, I opened the unit up and using a hair dryer carefully dried off the printed circuit board. I then replaced the battery. The remote is still working today. Good luck! Whether this works out for you or not you should tell your Mom about it. Accidents do happen - my guess is she will understand.

Dropped instinct in toilet.


it seems water logged still, you could try drying it out with a hair dryer, don't keep trying to turn it on if its still wet inside, it will eventually blow up the internal circuitry, dry it out properly even if that means removing the outer caseing.

hope this helps,
Brett

G1 TOUCHSCREEN


Hi there, You are lucky that it is on... try one thing.. put the fun under the sunlight for half an hour or may be 15 min if its too hot there and try it again...
if this will not work then try to open the phone if you can clean the top screen area and put it back (try at your own risk) and it will do..

I wet my g1


I hated that happened to you but I hope that you have insurance on it. Anyway for the stickiness very lightly damp a  Q-tip or the tip of a towel and rub against the buttons that are sticky. Use water and a very small drop of rubbing alcohol. Now for the warning signal maybe just leave the phone alone for several hours or days and then test it later or open the phone take the battery out and see if it looks like the soda had gotten down in the phone . If it doesn't it might have a good chance of coming back on but if it does place the phone in a draining position so that the remainder of the soda can drain on a cloth or something. Please do not use a blow dryer if it is still wet because it might make it worse that what it is. But even though i don't recommend it if you want to try it hold the blow dryer back a few inches and move the phone in different positions as you do it. If all these fail (I'm not an expert) call customer service.
