Wet Phone - White Screen

Hi, I would truly appreciate any help or advice .  Having looked all over for my phone on saturday morning, I was surprised when I saw it sadly staring back at me from the wet garden grass. It had been raining all night, so I quickly took it in, removed the battery and tried drying the phone out with a hairdryer. I turned on the phone and thought I had done the trick; However, the screen just stayed white.   I let it dry for the rest of the day and later thought a miracle had happened when the sonny-Ericsson logo loaded. I didn't wait for the phone to fully load though and quickly put in the sim card. I turned the phone back on, but the screen was white again. 
I've tried drying the phone some more, but it hasn't seemed to work yet. I was wondering if someone had any advice on what I could do to fix it?? (Baring in mind that the phone is not under guarantee)

Put the phone in a baggie full of rice and seal it. Make sure to take apart the battery and sim card. The rice will act as a desiccant, drying it over night.

Take the phone to a service centre who will attempt to do what we call an ionic bath. this is a bath of electricity and pure alcohol.
they should then use i fibre glass pencil to clean trhe contacts properly. you may also need a replacement screen depending upon how badly the water damage is.

Most likely there is water inside and that is why you cant see nothing, You would have to open the phone up and clean it, check it has not water damage.

My touch screen is not working at all. My phone has not been dropped or anything like that. It worked saturday morning then saturday afternoon it quite.


This may or may not help but is worth a try. To reboot the phone's software, remove the battery and SIM card for a few moments. Reinsert and start the phone up.

Let me know the results.

White screen on chocolate phone


Yes, I can offer my advice, I have experienced this same issue numerous times with my chocolate, and every time I had to take it back to where you got the phone from and they replaced it under warranty, as long as the phone didn't get wet.

Hope this helps

Wet Phone - White Screen


I figured it out. I went to tons of websites before I figured it out. you need to order a new flex cable for your phone (only cost about $8 from the website I got it at, which is a lot better than paying $50 or more for a new phone) make sure it's the one that goes to your phone. Once you get it you can install it yourself, just be careful and make sure you pay attention to where it all goes, it shouldn't be too hard. I haven't gotten mine yet but I'm already positive it's going to work, tons of other people have this problem and fixed it this way.
