Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

2 Answers

Water damage I don't even know how water splashed on my cell phone from the jacuzzi, but somehow a few drops managed to find their way, thus damaging my phone. I immediately took out the battery and tried drying everything I could see, including the sim card, all visible connections, as well as the battery and battery cover. I still wouldn't start so I thought maybe the battery had drained and it mearly needed to be charged. I tryed this a few times cuz each time the phone acted a little different, but unfortunatly none resulted in it ever starting up. I had heard that there was a way to rest it. Is that possible and/or are there other options. Thank you for your time and help, Jim Ott

Your best bet is to not do anything to it(besides taking it out of the water that it fell into), wait a couple days for it to dry completely and then turn it on.

Mu Samsung J3 does not download since a couple of days any multimedia message. Always says Failed to download attachment from mutlimedia message. Try again later. Am on wifi, thus no data problem

1) do you have a SD card? if yes, check space alloction. If No then it will have failed due to no space.
2) check to see if download manager is working.
3)make sure you are connected to wifi.
4) has it been dropped many times? water damaged? someone else play with your phone?? the latter will always be the problem as they like to believe they can make your phone run faster.

How to fix a phone that dropped into water

Hi, when ever a phone drops inside the water, First you will need to remove the battery from the cell phone.If the battery is left inside the cell phone, the water will damage the cells inside the battery, why?, because there is still Power inside the cell phone that can damage the battery cell.

To service the phone,you will need to unscrew the cell phone,because has entered into the cell phone and it can damage IC chips inside the cell phone if not attended to immediately.

Use a phone screw and unscrew the phone from the back by removing the battery and you will see some screws, unscrew possible screws and open the phone.(depends on the type of phones)

Get a methylated spirit and a small brush, remove the board of the phone and deep the brush inside the methylated spirit,brush gently on the board of the phone. After brushing, get a dryer to dry up the board of the phone and live it for a while to dry.

After some minutes,assemble the phone back and fix in the battery. Make sure during the process you are charging the battery of the phone. battery might be dead or low in power..Better you can have a spare battery around
after servicing the cell phone..

I guess that's all you need.

Note: if the battery has stayed too too long on the phone and am sorry after the water splash, it might not come on after this all process, that means you will have to flash the phone because the battery might have damaged the memory of the board of the phone and will not power up the phone because the phone is too weak to power.

Flashing of the phone will restore back the phone memory.

That's solves your problem.

My iphone 4 drop in my dishwater with bleach will it dry out and work again

Dropping a switched on cell phone into bleached water will certainly damage the electronics in the cell phone.
You can remove the battery and dry it out, but most likely it is damaged beyond repair.

White screen

did you drop it in water, ?did you press the screen to hard and cracked the lcd panel? those are the most common reasons, oh, and dropping it, and also dropping it in water. I would suggest going over all those possibilities.. open up the back of your phone and pull out the battery, in all phones now they have a water sensor dot, it remains white always unless the phone was damaged by water, and warranty doesnt cover water damage, look for that little white dot, if its red, that means you gotta get a new phone, and if you try peeling if off theyll know youre covering up water damage, unless you were able to somehow obtain another white color changing dot to put back in your phone now in the exact place it should be, but techs are very good at catching bluffs. but if that white is intact to begin with, your phone should be under warrenty of some sort, and that means they owe you a new one. bottom line. BOOM

My nokia phone fell in water and is not Switching on again

Accidents happen with phones and water but it doesn't always mean that all hope is lost. Below is a brief guide as to what you should do if your phone has been totally immersed in water.

1. Take the phone out of the water as quickly as possible.

2. Do not attempt to switch it on as this may cause further damage.

3. Remove the battery as quickly as you can, also remove the memory and sim cards.

4. If dropped in fresh water dry it off with a towel. If dropped in salt water rinse it thoroughly with fresh water. I know it sounds crazy getting it wet again but salt can cause a lot of internal damage such as corrosion. Again dry with a towel. You may also want to rinse it if you dropped it in a toilet.

5. Place the phone, battery and it's wet accessories in a plastic container (like a lunch box) and completely cover it with uncooked rice, use plenty of it. Again this sounds crazy but rice has desiccating properties that help draw the water out of the phone. Do not place a lid on the container.

6. Place the container somewhere very warm and dry for at least 3 days. An airing cupboard is often the ideal place.

7. Do not use a hair dryer directly on the phone to speed up the process. Too much heat can cause even more damage.

This isn't guaranteed to work but many people have successfully revived their phones and retrieved their data using this method.

Keep in mind that your phone is on borrowed time after you do this. Make it your first priority to retrieve any data that you would like to keep. It may only work for a few minutes, days, weeks, months or it may even last years.

You should monitor the phone carefully during charging. If it gets very hot the battery may be damaged and should be replaced.

After any exposure to water you no longer have a warranty as water damage is not covered. Any insurance policies on the phone may also be voided unless you are covered for accidental damage.

A more efficient alternative to rice is silica gel. You most likely won't have enough of the stuff to hand when the accident happens but it is good to use. Silica gel can be bought from electronic wholesalers like this example. Thank you to shuntfield for this information.

Good luck!

The battery must have caught moisture. Thus it can't take sufficient charge. Try replacing the battery.

I dropped my k850i in water. It started gradually working properly after a few days but it wont charge. Everything else works fine. It just doesn't recognise the charger which I know is working fine.

The phone really does need to be taken apart and cleaned properly using PCB cleaner and any IC's which are damaged need to be replaced, the more you put power into it before the damage is cleaned/repaired the more you are risking further damage...

If you havent done phone repairs before, try a decent local phone shop see if they can take a look at it for you.

If you want to try yourself let me know and I can try and find a guide for dissassembly for you, however I have to warn you a lot of the repairs we get everyday where people have done more damage to their phone by trying to repair it themselves, they are usually unrepairable or cost a lot more as more ends up being damaged than the original fault

Cell phone dropped in water - red dot showing - options?

you don't need to actually drop your phone in water for there to be water damage.
simple things like having your phone in the rain, in the bathroom while you shower, around a hot tub, or possibly even if it's really humid outside can set this water damage sensor off.
it just gives phone companies more ways to void your warranty.

hope this helped.
