Re: Dropped in toliet!

Turn it off (If it hasn't shut off already). Take the battery out. Let it sit for at least 4 hours in a warm area (about 85 F will do). The moisture needs to completely evaporate from all parts inside the phone. When the phone is dry and has had time in that warm environment to evaporate, you can put your battery back into the phone and turn it on. Depending on the level of damage done, it will either work fine, work but have glitches here and there, work on some things but not others, or not work at all. If the phone fails to turn on, take it to your local retailer and ask them to test it for functionality, and if possible, to reprogram the phone (re-install its firmware). If none of these things help, you'll have to replace your phone.

The apple appears when turned on but quickly disappears. it fell in te toliet for about 3 can i fix it?

If it was working fine before it fell in the toilet, it probably has water damage. Take it to an Apple Store or contact Apple for tech support.

I dropped phone in toliet. Will it ever work

If you immediately put it in a bowl of white rice, it drys it.

But other than that, nope. It probably won't work.

I had the same issue only I actually flushed mine on accident, haha.

Switch off the phone as soon as possible. Allow it to dry else the circuits will be affected. Check if it works tomorrow, if it doesn't you might need professional help. Some components will require change.

Dropped Pantech Matrix in water

it's probably going to be really expensive to repair it if there is major damage. but i got in the pool with my matrix in my pocket and i dried it out and it wont turn on with the battery in it(it's bad i know) but if i take it out and plug it up it works fine but i cannot call, or text. it wont connect to a network. i dont know whether or not i should invest in a battery which isn't that pricey at all or just get a new phone. i'm just not sure if a new battery will fix the problem.

I drped my phone in toliet

Open as much of it (battery cover, flip open), as you can and remove the battery. Mop dry with tissue/cotton bud for the cracks and then leave on a sunny windowsill for a few days without trying anything else. Then reassemble, recharge and give it a go.

Try undoing the whole phone and take out the battery to dry out in the sun.
I put my daughters thru the washing machine and it came back on. Its worth a try.

Seems like your lcd and or flex cable might be gone. Also, u may have a short on the board, u probably tried to turn it on and it was still wet. Water damage can cleaned, and the parts are all replaceable. Check my profile as we may be able to help you.
