You shud remove the battery and use your hairdryer without heat on it and dryup all the water traces and moisture. Try it many times. And then put the battery back and switch it on and see it work.

You may have water damage to your phone. Try placing your phone into a bag of rice, the rice will absorb the moisture, and will hopefully fix the problem. If the phone is damaged beyond household repair you are probably going to have to replace it.

I recently jumped into a pool with my cell phone in my pocket (SAMSUNG Reality). I realized it 10 minues or so after. Dried the phone. A day later, the phone will turn on when connected to charger...


When phone gets wet NEVER try to turn it on. Take battery out right away shake water off and put both in bowl of rice for at least 24 hrs. If your not home or don't have rice right away take battery out and get some. We have a bowl of rice on the counter all summer long for those who jump in the pool with phone in their pocket. I have washed them dropped them in the toilet my son jumped in pool with his phone, put it rice for 24 hrs and we were up and running with the exception of the one in the pool, that one cost me new battery on Ebay ($4.95) but phone worked fine, didn't even lose contacts or pictures. But the key is to NOT try to turn it on after its been wet. Water and batteries don't mix.

LG Rumor 2 charges but won't turn on


Remove the battery and the sim card and leave it in a warm place (not on top of a radiator) for a few days.

(If it is possible to open the case without doing any damage, then this would speed up the drying process

My lg rumor is wet


Dry it out.
Take the battery out.
First use a q-tip to get visible moisture.
Then put the device in a bag of dust-free rice (buy some quality rice).
The rice will absorb the moisture.
Let me know if this does it.

LG Dare dropped in Pool


Just put it in a bag of rice for couple of weeks. The rice pulls all the water or wetness out of the phone. How do I know, Well I found a brand New Lg Dare phone in a puddle, put it in rice for 2 1/2 months. I took it out of the bag, put it together, turn it on. To my amazement it worked. Ran to store, bought a charger, and it has worked every day since.

How do i fix a wet lg rumor?


Get it out of water immediately.Make sure phone is turned off. Take out battery, open all doors on phone and put the entire phone with the keyboard extended out inside a huge jar of raw uncooked rice, I had mine in a screw-type peanut butter jar with the phone buried. keep in a there for about three to four days.....make sure the battery is out the entire time and you dry it with soft towels,DO NOT USE A BLOW Dryer AT all.....
You can blow the water in deeper...I have the Green LG Rumour 1..
The rice will absorb the water,,,I first had the phone in cat litter till we bought the rice.
I made the mistake of taking it to Sprint that night and they turned it on and the water droplets were in the screen....DO NOT turn the phone on for about 4 days or more...make sure the phone is bone dry....About 5 days later, take the phone of the rice jar,,,,look for any signs of moisture, if none, then plug in the phone and see if the green light comes on, on the side of the screen,,,if yes...then put the battery in....if good then try out the phone's systems...I did this tonight, my round button is gone, I got my phone list copied and my pictures,,,I was most worried about my pix !
I am still trying to find a way to get my text messages back :)

Wet phone has black screen


You took all the right steps, including the rice. Unfortunately, even the rice method doesn't always catch the moisture before it does it's damage. The next step is to take the phone back to the store where you purchased it and have them see if it is salvageable. The other thing to check is where you stand with your contract. You may be able to replace the phone by extending your contract. good luck.

My wife's LG 8550 got wet and now won't power on


If the phone was still on while it got submerged, then you may be out of luck. Had it been off when it was submerged, using the rice trick might have worked. I would try removing the battery, and drying it out some more, but the damage may have already been done. Sorry!

Cell got wet


as the battery is dead you must buy a new battery and insert it ...

surely it will work ...

i think you may get some screen problems after switching on ...

if so remove the handset & screen too and adjust it again ....
this may happen if there is any water traces ...
