I dropped my phone in juice (lemon-aid) it was glitching and so I took the battery out and put it in rice over night then took a air conpresser to it and put it bake in rice I jus now put rubbing alcohol...


Ok, keep it in the rice and also put teh phone itself into the rice for three or so days, then you may need a new battery if it got wet, but it should work fine

I have Verizon Lg-VX9200 that won't completely turn on. Every time I start it up the screen shows Verizon Wireless, then goes white, and repeats.


This can be two things.
1. Have you dropped your phone in the water recently? If so, put it in a bag of rice (no joke) for about a day. Then Take it out and try again.

2. If this does not work, than you have a corrupted battery. Go to Verizon and ask them about buying a new one.

My Kyocera XTC fell in some water on Saturday morning, I removed it out of the water and immediately removed the battery, I wiped and shook out as much water as possible then used the blow dryer to dry...


If it was not totally dried before turning it on again, probably it got damaged. you can try to completely dry the phone before trying to use again.
Here is the procedure to take out all moisture trapped in the phone: wrap each piece, phone and accessories, in newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped phone in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your phone because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the phone. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs. Hope this helps!

My motorola rival A455 cell phone got droped in water


try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

******** won't stop vibrating.


Gumby,

Unless you live in a climate with near 0% Humidity, the bag of rice fix will take longer than 24 hours.

Give it three or four days back in the bag and then try it.

It sounds as though its bouncing back nicely

LG Dare dropped in Pool


Just put it in a bag of rice for couple of weeks. The rice pulls all the water or wetness out of the phone. How do I know, Well I found a brand New Lg Dare phone in a puddle, put it in rice for 2 1/2 months. I took it out of the bag, put it together, turn it on. To my amazement it worked. Ran to store, bought a charger, and it has worked every day since.
