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 ..

I washed my LG phone in the washing machine, what can I do?


Hello,

The first step is to leave your phone alone! DO NOT try to turn your wet cell phone on. Turning on your wet phone can permanently damage the circuitry.

Next step is find a bag of rice, preferably white. White rice can absorbs the most water. Ensure that you have enough bag of rice to completely submerge your wet cell phone.

Now, place your wet cell phone into the bag of rice. Place the phone in the middle of the bag so that you can no longer see your wet cell phone.

Next, place your bag of rice in a dry and warm place. I left my bag of rice in the back of my car on a hot day.

Leave your bag of rice to sit for several hours. I left my bag of rice in the back of my car for 8 hours. After time has elapsed, you can finally pull out your cell phone and try to turn on your phone.

Good luck!

How to dry a wet cell phone


If a cellphone ever gets wet usually its thought that the cell phone is dead but its not the case if you follow the bellow instruction in case your cell got wet:


Dry out a wet cell phone by taking out the battery and SIM card and placing all of the parts in a zip locked bag or any other plastic bag with uncooked rice for 24 to 48 hours. Avoid putting wet cell phones in the oven, as it may melt the plastic. Remember never turn your phone on before that time or if your phone is wet and its still on then remove the battery immediately that will save your phone.

When your phone gets wet.


If your phone ever gets wet, DO NOTHING until it drys. If you let it completely dry before trying to use it again, it should work just fine. it's when u turn the phone on when it's wet that ruins it.

Insert SIM Card


you need to get a new main board.....or you can take it to a mobile store tech and have the phone fully service.

But the best solution would be to buy a need mobile....most time when a mobile gets wet......it's more of a 50/50 chance that it will work properly again.
