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.

Check the water damage indicators on the phone and battery. They are white stickers, and they will turn red if they have gotten damp or wet. Be aware that some phones can get water damaged from condensation, or being in a moist environment like a bathroom.

If the damage indicators are clear, they cannot prove that it has damage and you should take it back and talk to someone else.

I think that my blackberry cuve may have a little bit of water damage because someone spilled a drink on it last night. I took the battery out and put it back in and the phone comes on and the messages are...


First, to check if there is water damage inside the phone, you can check the water mark sticker.
When you take the back piece off your phone, on the left of the battery inside a rectangle shaped cut-out in the plastic, you will see a little square. If it is red/pink this means there is definitely water damage, if its white then no water has reached that part of your phone. Unfortunately if its turned red or pink Blackberry will not repair it free of charge.
That being said, you can try completely submerging your phone in a bowl of rice. This will draw the moisture out and hopefully get your phone in working condition again, this has worked for myself and many friends.

My samsung impression dropped in water and touch screen broke


I also dropped my Samsung Impression in the toilet, I immediately took the phone took the protective case off, took the battery cover off, and took the battery and my SIM card out and towel dried it as best as I could. Then I sat it on the floor next to my fan and let it dry until I got to my grandparents a little while later and I put it in a bowl of rice, completely covered the phone and battery with rice and left it sit overnight in the rice and all of the next day, so far i've had it on about 20 minutes and have had no problems with it so far, another solution is to sit it in the sun, to further dry it out. Water damage will void warranties on your phone and battery and your provider will know instantly if the damage was water related when they take your battery cover off, there is a small square sticker that when dry and hasn't touched water should be white, but as soon as it comes into contact with water it turns red, there is also one of these stickers on the battery. My stickers were red and after sitting in the rice they look like they got lighter in color considerably, I don't know if that is really possible but appearance wise it looks that way. I hope this helps anyone who has had this problem. Good Luck!

On off does not work dampness on battery


First thing is be sure that the battery is charged and not dead.

2nd hold down the on/off siwtch a little longer and see what happens.

if you have a wall outlet, or charger for it plug that in and then try turning it on, if it comes on then its your battery.

remove the battery and make sure its dry, and clean and blow around where your phone battery sits. Make sure its clean (dont use any liquid here, just blow).
Then replace the battery and the back cover and make sure the battery is connecting.

if it still dont work then sounds like your phone may have gotten wet some how.

look near or under the battery you should see a white or red/pink sticker.

if the sticker is white the phone has gotten wet, and prob has shorted out. Even if its not pink/red then the phone itself didn't get wet, but if you recently had the phone in the bathroom when you took a shower ect. its still possible the condensation from the shower got inside and shorted your phone out.

Your last and final step would be making a insurance claim on your phone if you have phone insurance.
(as long as the sticker isnt red or pink)

Taking it back to where you bought it if you havnt had it very long,

or getting a new one, either by updating your contract if your eligible, using an old cell if you have one, or buying a new one.

please rate and recommend me if this has been helpful.

How will i know iF G1 phone has water damage


Remove the back cover and battery of the device. Set the battery aside and look inside the phone. In the lower right hand corner near the gold prongs there is a circle sticker. It will be on the side wall of the device. If the sticker is red, your phone has been exposed to water damage.

My samsung tmobile comes on but then immediately says goodby.


make sure that it does not have water damage?! you can tell if you took the back cover where the battery does and see if you see and sticker that has red ink on it.
Most cellphone company put a water activated stick that will change color when it reacts with water?! and it will void your warranty
