Ok, first remove the battery cover and battery and sim leave them in a warm room for 6hours or overnight.

Putting it back together and try it.if it still doesn`t work, try a battery change at your local dealer.

By the way a phone that hasn`t been charged for a while may not show any signs of working until maybe 30 mins.

I have one maxwest cellphone it's damaged by water, can it fix it?


Open the phone and remove the battery. Dab all internal surfaces with paper towel to remove as much moister as possible. Then use a hair dryer on medium heat to gently dry the phone completely. Make sure the battery is dry as well. Leave the phone open for a further half hour after drying and then put the battery back in and close the case. Switch on the phone, good luck.

Samsung Galaxy S2 fell into water wont turn on ! PLEASE HELP


You should not have tried to use it right away. You should have immediately pulled the battery out and then blow dried it and put into the rice bag for 24-36 hours. Because you tried to use it is shorted out. You will need a new phone as it is probably not going to be able to be fixed. Sorry!

Immediately remove the phone from the water, turnoff the cell phone remove the battery and SIM card. When you have dried thecell phone by putting in a warm sunny place for several days or in front of awarm fan heater for several hours then reassemble the phone. Hopefully it willwork properly but if does not work then it is faulty and you need a new cellphone.

Fell in a toilet.


Quickly remove the battery and unplug the device, If possible, put it in a container or dry rice and let it set for a couple days. this should work, when it is dry remove from rice and see if it works... Do you have insurance?

Place everything into a plastic bag with uncooked white rice. let it sit for a few days.
Buy a new battery if yours is toast and put it all back together and try it.
Thats the only way to know if it is dead or not.

Remove the battery. Place it in a bowl full of white rice to whick away the moisture. Wait 24 hours and try again.
By using it before the phone is dry, it can cause permanent damage to the device!

Phone fell in the toilet and need method to dry.


Remove the battery, do NOT try and power it on. Get a bowl and pour some rice into it, place the phone in it and let dry for a few days.

If you try and power it on while there is ANY water left inside it, you can short it out and ruin it permanently. This is the best known method, but is not guaranteed to work.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

T-Mobile Shadow Water Damage


try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

Wet Phone - White Screen


take the phone to a service centre who will attempt to do what we call an ionic bath. this is a bath of electricity and pure alcohol.
they should then use i fibre glass pencil to clean trhe contacts properly. you may also need a replacement screen depending upon how badly the water damage is.
