Question about LG RUMOR Cellular Phone
Remove the battery and any cards ... then "cook" the phone at low temperatures .. no higher than 120 deg F .. stoves dont go that low but if your furnace is forced air and is on this time of the year you can put it over a heat outlet for a day or two ... or use some other source of warm dry heat (like a heating pad or electric blanket) ..adjust the temp for around 120 deg F .. be careful not to overheat it (that will damage the liquid crystal display ) .. dont put the phone i a plastic bag or other wrapping .. the idea is to hasten the evaporation of water trapped under components inside the phone ... the success will depend on how contaminated the water was ... pure or distiled water will not leave residue behind and the phone will likely work after drying .. really dirty water will leave lots of stuff behind and the sucess rate will be lower .. .. its important to dry the phone out soon before corrosion damages things inside .. sometimes we actually wash out dirty water with Deionized or distilled water before drying ... if you dissemble the phone then you can use "canned air" to blow out water from under things .. but that might get a bit complicated for most.. ... at 120 degF it can take up to several days to completely dry out the phone .. but results should be seen in one day ..
