Water Damage to Mortorola RAZR V3

I dropped my phone into some water, dried it out for two days and when I put the phone on, the graphics and sound are perfect but when it gets to the part where it is supposed to ask for my PIN it just says "Inser SIM" -what is the problem? Will this be cheap to fix or will it be more worth my while to just buy a new phone? Thanks for any help you may be able to provide me with.

Re: Water Damage to Mortorola RAZR V3

It's best to buy a new one....while having a sim in the phone and it is still asking for sim...means the main board is faulty....and seeing that it fell in water the phone may work for some time then stop working all together after being service.

Motorola V3 pins 1,2,3 shorted out...

If the phone was on when it was dropped in the water it probably will never work because the circuits inside will have been compromised. If the phone was off, remove the battery and it can be put in an oven set to 'warm' and left for several hours. This dries out the circuits an sometimes lets the phone work. Usually the phone gets damaged when it is dropped in water.

Water damage

Remove the battery and let the unit sit for a day or two. It takes a lot longer to dry out than it seems. If it doesn't work after that amount of time, the water probably did permanent damage. The cell company's regular warranty covers defects, but their premium insurance should cover even water damage. If they don't cover it at all, the repair cost probably isn't worth it if you can get a deal on a new phone. Definitely worth a shot to call or stop in your cell company's physical store and chat them up.

Dropped phone in puddle only screen is broken PLEASE HELP MEE!!!!

Unfortunately, I would suggest you not trying to fix this. The reason is once water gets inside, any of the parts that got wet will eventually corrode. It might work a day, a week, I actually had my phone work 2 months, then it will stop. You could replace the screen and have it work right away, but nobody could gaurantee that it will continue.

Due to the complex inner working of cell phones once they are dropped in water they are considered useless.

I dropped my phone in the toliet.

Seems like your lcd and or flex cable might be gone. Also, u may have a short on the board, u probably tried to turn it on and it was still wet. Water damage can cleaned, and the parts are all replaceable. Check my profile as we may be able to help you.

Motorola RAZR V3 Cellular Problems With Water Damage

yes it is bad
getting hot means that the internals are frying or shorting out
leave the battery off of it for about a week then try it again.
I really don't like your chances of it working properly again though.
Good Luck
