Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone
Let's start with, I WASHED MY PHONE!!!! Therein lies the problem. However, I did not immediately try to turn on the phone. I took the battery out and let it dry out for a few days. Currently, it will not start up all the way. It turns on and and freezes at the black screen that displays "Verizon Wireless." Is my phone shot or is it something that can be reset? perhaps a new battery? Please help me fix this expensive mistake!!
I am afraid you are screwed. The water has gotten into your curcuit boards and is shorting out components. There is a remote possabilty that it could dry out, but things are so crammed in that compact case that it may just corrode metal or even grow mold. Leave the battery out and battery cover off for a few days and see if you get lucky. All the new phone have litte stips on the batteries and inside so they can tell if they got wet that voids the warrenty or insurance. Sorry!
