Question about LG Shine CU720 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Phone got wet.

I dropped my phone in the toilet. It was in a leather case and I grabbed it immediately, so it really didn't get too wet. I immediately removed the battery and dried it out. The next day I could see moisture under the screen. It dried out and has worked fine for a week. Last night the screen would not come on. I could dial out and receive calls but I couldn't see anything. It finally came back on. The alarm worked fine this morning. Then, the screen started to scramble. Now there is nothing on the screen, but calls can still be made and received fine.

Most likely the screen display had a shortcut. You need to replace it, although it's not cheap. Expect to pay a little less than the full price of the phone.

Next time spend more time drying the phone, you can even use a bowl with rice to immerse the phone and leave it dry for one full day.

Uniden 6.0 phone got wet.


If the phone got wet it will probably not work anymore. You might try tossing it in a bag of rice to dry it out completely. But in most cases, dropping the phone in water will ruin it.

I dropped my g1 in the toilet while i was at wrk...now this happend around 6ish and dont get off till 9...so i took all the parts off...now i did have a slight problem getting the case off it for like 4...


They will not replace the phone as dropping it into the toilet is definitely not part of the proper handling. So what you can do to save the phone is to use your hairdryer on it without the heat so that you can dry it up completely. Then assemble it and with your fingers crossed, power it on. Initially if the phone does not come on then charge the battery and then power it on. read the following link

Wet phone model # SGH-a717


I don't really understand what is being asked here. Are you saying you were **** and dropped your phone in the toilet and it is now wet? The best thing to do is remove the battery right away. Get a big jar, fill it with rice. Put the phone and the battery in the rice filled jar. The rice will absorb all moisture quickly, hopefully saving the water-logged electronics. Keep the phone in the jar for 24 to 48 hours, let it really dry out. Try to put the battery in the phone and start it up. If NOTHING happens, maybe the battery is dead. Try charging it. If still NOTHING happens, I think that you may have water-logged your phone and it is beyond repair. Try using your home-owner's insurance, if you have it, and claim your phone was stolen. Maybe they will give you money to buy a new phone.

Wet phone


yes in some cases. but since you switch on your phone without completely drying it out, some problems may arise... like, auto-shut off, no signal, no ringtone, not chraging and even worse, it might die... in cases like wet phones.. it should be dried out completely to avoid shortages on the electronic components. but anyway... try cleaning it with laquer thinner for a minute or two... this will remove the moist deposits that might have developed on the ic's..

tnx

You should try to borrow a battery or simply take yours out and plug in the charger to see if it will turn on.

Dropped in Toilet


See if it will turn on when you remove battery and plug it into your charger. If it will you could recover the numbers with the Motorola software or the Carrier could.
