Take out the battery and any memory card or accessories . Use a hair dryer on low heat around the buttons, any openings and battery compartment for a few minutes.

Repeat the step 3 times and then leave it in warm dry place overnight..with any luck it should start working again.

Good luck.

Dropped in soapy water it worked. Did it again stopped working. Can it be fixed. Tried the rice method.

If dried out and still not working it is not worth fixing, even if possible - cost is probably under $50 new, less used.

If it was dropped in water ,it must've fried the power chip.This Can Not Be fixed with a hair dryer...if you take it down to a computer repair shop they coul replace the chip for a price of around $400 (depend whether other parts or circuits have been harmed) I've done this before on my t100 and I spent at least $500 for the chip and the LCD screen.

My quinny buzz front wheels are stiff tried wd40 any other ideas? thanks.

Stick the front wheels in a bucket of hot soapy water first. Take out of bucket turn the wheels and dip back in. Repeat till wheels turn freely. Allow to air dry than spray with lubricant. I prefer silicon sprays over oil based ones like WD40.

Dropped PS3 wireless controller in a bucket of water, fished it out immediately and dried it off, allowed time to dry out but still won't work. Is it repairable or is it dustbin time?

Greetings Gprjohn,

Unfortunately, water sucks. =) Joking aside, there isn't a way to fix it. Since the water damage has destroyed all of the mechanics of your controller. Before you toss it, make sure all of the buttons don't work. If a button works, than there may be a way to replace the rest of the controller. Although this would most likely cost more than a new controller altogether. Thanks for using Fixya. =)

Sony remote RM-Y135 got dropped into a bucket of water. What to do?

If your device gets covered in water, act fast and rationally, and you may be able to save your device.

2. Pull out the batteries.
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 new batteries back in and power on.

Hi i dropped my nokia n96 in a bucket of water ive let it dry out and now the screen will only work when i pit it wide screen and it restarts its self alot but when i play my music it stays on why is that

Even if you have dried the phone out it is a good idea to check the small ribbon cables for corrosion sometimes you can remove this using a small pencil eraser. It is possible that there might be one of two high impedance connections causing your problem.

HTC diamond dropped in water

Try using a hairdryer on it. Open it up as far as you can without voiding your warranty. Don't let it get too hot but the moisture is inside and you may be able to get it to dry out in a couple of days.

Camera dropped in a bucket of water

I very much doubt it. If you had removed the batteries straight away, stripped the complete camera and let warm air waft over it for a day and then put it all back together and tried it, you may have been lucky. But wet circuit boards and electricity is asking for major problems. Even leaving a closed camera for 2 days wouldn't have given it a good drying out.
