You should try to disassemble as many as its major parts like battery, front panel/cover and put it in direct sunlight for few will definitely help.

My iphone's touch screen won't work after being dropped in water

You may have to get a screen replacement. You can do this yourself if you want to try it and buy the parts. Or take it into a shop, or apple will replace it but most likely charge you way more than any of those options unless its your first replacement.

I dropped my phone in water... And it won't turn

It's an electronic device so it would be very difficult if it'll fell in water. first remove its shell and then get a hair dryer and turn it to low. carefully blow dry the insides of your phone. if you are using an iphone it would be best to consult a phone tech.

What color is dot going to be if water

well. there are a few things you can look for.
Iron-Oxide(rust) - it will be very small so look carefully
Discoloration - if the phone was turned on after the water hit it or while it was in the water it will have shorted. so look for a patch of the circut board that is odly coloured(near battery is the best spot to look)
and look at the screen
liquid crystals DO NOT LIKE water. so look for discoloration in the screen(if it turns on)

if there is condensation inside the phone
  1. get some jasmine rice
  2. get a sealable container
  3. put the rice into the container, and sink the phone into the rice
  4. seal the container
  5. store in a cool dry place
what this does is, the rice soaks up all the water taking it off your phone

You may have done permanent damage by putting the battery back in too soon. Remove the battery and put the phone in a warm dry place and leave it for week to dry out internally. Maybe it will work after that but you're most likely looking at having to replace it.

My Impression got dropped in a sink of water and now it does not work. I have no insurance on it and the ATT store has no parts to fix it. How do I fix it? It does not power on but when it is plugged into...

I have the same phone and the same thing happened to me. Do not turn it on if its soaked!!! The water in the phone will short circuit the phone. Make sure its turned off, take out the battery, wipe it with a towel to take off the surface water. Then to **** dry out the water from the inside, you can either put the phone in a bowl of rice, or a bowl of silica packets, both of which act as moisture absorbers. I put my phone in rice and let it stay overnight and now it works perfectly, the only problem is that theres a bit of rice residue in the phone, so I recommend going out and getting some silica packets. If that doesn't work, then you're out of luck

I lost the cup that came with the rice cooker, and was wondering what the rice/water ratio is.


For Jasmine rice, we use 1.5 C dry unwashed rice to 2.5C cold water.

For Japanese short grain sushi rice which needs washing, we use 2C dry rice, wash and drain it, than add 2.5 C cold water and let soak for 10 minutes, than cook.

For brown rice, we use a 2:1 ratio, water to rice, with 20 minutes soak time.

Hope this helps.

Soak on water. now its not working

I don't know if this works but I have heard if you take the battery out and let it sit in a bowl of uncooked rice over night it should work the next day because the rice soaks up all the water. I would give that a try.

Dropped my phone in sink of water

You may have caused a short in the device. Basically once your cellphone is exposed to water, the best solution would be to IMMEDIATELY remove the battery, and place the device in a bowl of rice. The rice serves to absorb the moisture, and within a day, should restore your phone :D.

It doesn't hurt to take it apart and dry it by hand though, but by trying to use a non-dry phone you may have to get a new one.

I drop my phone centro palm into water! I charge the phone and the red light turns on but my phone wont turn on at all. What can i do

Get a bowl of rice. Remove the battery from the phone. Leave the phone back open. Put phone and battery in the bowl of rice, cover and leave overnight.

The rice will hopefully soak up any water inside the phone and battery. If this doesn't work there may be permanent damage to the phone from the water and charging afterwords.

Due to the complex inner working of cell phones once they are dropped in water they are considered useless.
