Re: Phone got wet

There's corrosion buildup on the contacts from the battery to the circuit board. Depending on how bad the rust and corrosion is, it may be a permanent thing.

Whenever a phone gets we you should NEVER try and put electricity to it, it just continues to fry it. Always take the battery out ASAP and let it air dry for 3-4 days - 1 week depending on how bad it got wet.

Re: Phone got wet

Try taking out the battery and blow-drying where jack goes. Keep air on high fan and heat on cool. Also blow dry where battery goes.

Remove battery, clean contacts between battery and phone, also be sure to use an original Motorola charger instead of one of those "universal" type chargers.Hope this helps!

Check the cable connector (at the bottom of the phone) for debris or corrosion on the connector contacts. Use rubbing alcohol if necessary.

I accidentally washed my LG VX5300, please help.

When electronics get wet, they MUST be taken apart as soon as possible and dried out. It probably has some wet areas inside that may have fried some connections. Water or corrosion by the water have short circuited something inside. There is still hope I hope to either take it apart and inspect and clean the corrosion off of all electronics or take it to an electronics shop and get them to do it.
