    My phone turns on now but it tweaks out.

    I tried holding the two soft keys and turning it on but it didn't go to the black screen with white writing it still went to the green screen.

In my experience when getting a phone wet your only choice is to let it sit. It could take a few days or a month but soon or later they usually fire back up.

My mobile fell into a cup of coffee, how can i dry it out?

You could possibly dismantle it & dry it that way but any moisture in the parts you can't reach will/may prevent it from restarting. What I'd do if it was mine is take it to a phone repair shop ask them for a price.

Got water damage and wont turn on

I dropped my phone in the toilet and surprisingly it still works. First I took the battery off and dried the phone and battery as much as I could. Then I took my blow dryer and a towel where I folded the towel in half and positioned the phone and the blow dryer under the towel and left it going for about an hour. The next day I took the phone and sat it in the sun until the inside moisture was gone. Then I charged it my phone has been working fine ever since and that was nearly two months ago.

Wet camera

Was the camera on when it decided to go for a swim? If yes, it's probably time for a new camera. If no, then after weeks of allowing it to dry internally you should be okay.

Having turned it on before it was thoroughly dried out, it's very possible that the moisture shorted out circuitry....time for a new camera.

Sidekick 3 dropped in a cup of water. Water got into screen.

Is the screen blank all the time?

If you look really hard can you see the items on the screen but they are really dark? If so the back light for the lcd may have burned out.

Take a look at the following site for instructions on disassembly.

If you feel comfortable with it, you can easily replace your own.
A new lcd runs about 50 dollars shipped. If you buy it from ebay, they will usually come with instructions and the screwdriver you need. A T6 torx driver is the type needed.

Good job on drying it out and pulling the battery. Thats the best thing you can do when you get it wet!

Wet dash

There's still water in it. You'll need to take the battery out and let it dry another two days. I got my phone wet one time and it took a week before it worked again.
