Re: You're gonna love this - 2 phones in a

Hello evans3958,

Well, most electronic circuits can be repaired providing that it is affordable to you and that replacement components are available. You can contact cell phone repair shops on the internet. I do not have experience with their success rate or the fees involved, but most of them offer free estimates.

I've been able to revive many phones that "went swiming" without troubleshooting or component replacement but, I haven't been successful with phones that got chemicals like detergent/softener in them. If you feel inclined to give it a try yourself, I'll let you in on one of my tricks to try to revive them (no guarantees, just a good try) let me know.

In the mean time, remove the batteries out of the phones until some repair action is done on them. This will avoid any further damage to the circuits and your wallet!!

Hope this helps you.

You need to try Silica Gel Packets to dry out your phone. There was a good article on that explains how to dry a wet cell phone, iPods, or any electronics.

You need to place your cell phone in a zip lock bag with Silica Gel Packets. Silica Gel will remove all the moisture from the phone and its components, something air drying will not do!

Just Google "Silica Gel Packets" and you will find several companies selling these products. There is also a web site called: that has them.

You are far better off buying a new phone. Put the old one on Craigs list - looking for a repair person - for this problem and or say you want to sell it out right and take that as a down payment.

LG Lotus screen problems on 2 phones I purchased for Wife & Son. Sent one back to LG and was told it had water damage. It has never been wet! What can I do?

Well , i dont think you will like my final answer... but here goes...
The board on a phone is one hell of a tricky mess... The way things are being designed and manufacturered cannot cope with the current weather conditions, and if left in a car during these hot days or left in a pocket and barely banged, causes the LCD to "Melt" or LEAK.
The answers from the RMA (Return to Manufacturer) is always due to "Water Damage".... and there solution is for your replacement...
Hope It Helped. -Jordon

I also have a Sony Ericsson K850I and dropped in the water.

you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried
