Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3c Cellular Phone

WET I dropped my ph in water...I took the battery out as soon as I could. Will it work again? The sensor(round white dot) on the battery is still white, but the dot on the phone, behind the cover is red and white. I called a friend who dropped hers in water, she said it will work again once dried.. Is this possible? Thanks, ALC

Yes, I had an older model Nextel I90 that met the same fate. I was able to disassemble the phone and used compressed air to dry the circuitry out. Putting it in rubber alcohol is a bad idea BTW, I've seen that suggested on similar questions

Hi,

There is a good chance that the phone will work once dried...but make sure it is totally dry (try to absord all water ad give it a few days to dry out) before attempting to turn on. If you take it part and dry out the parts...even better.

White screen


did you drop it in water, ?did you press the screen to hard and cracked the lcd panel? those are the most common reasons, oh, and dropping it, and also dropping it in water. I would suggest going over all those possibilities.. open up the back of your phone and pull out the battery, in all phones now they have a water sensor dot, it remains white always unless the phone was damaged by water, and warranty doesnt cover water damage, look for that little white dot, if its red, that means you gotta get a new phone, and if you try peeling if off theyll know youre covering up water damage, unless you were able to somehow obtain another white color changing dot to put back in your phone now in the exact place it should be, but techs are very good at catching bluffs. but if that white is intact to begin with, your phone should be under warrenty of some sort, and that means they owe you a new one. bottom line. BOOM

I have an intex salt water system for my 16ft round pool. My FC level is reading 0. Should I proceed to boost the system. PH is high also. Thanks.


run your generator for the full 12 hours. You need some serious sanitizer or you will be going green soon.
Also add some stabilizer so that the chlorine level does not drop so easily
As for the ph hit it with some ph down

It wouldnt hurt to get a bottle of non foaming algacide also

call and get it replaced. DONT TELL them about the water. simply state it doesnt make calls and get them to send you a waranty replacement. It is free, but remember to tell them there is no damage to the phone, as long as the white dot is still white and the phone doesnt look physically damaged you are good to go

Blackberry curve got wet


yes..
if nothing is working, then you need to go to your carrier and either get it fixed or they might replace it... dont tell them its water damage though.

Phone wont charge


Did you drop your phone in water? or do you live in a humid area?

Your phone was exposed to moisture. That red dot is a moisture sensitive piece of tape that changes colors when it gets wet.

If your phone still works, but the battery won't charge when connected to a home charger, you might try charging it in your car. Its a different type of current and may work with a somewhat damaged battery.

If that fails to fix the problem you may need to get a new battery.

Hope this helps

Phone will not turn on


ok, take out the battery and look and see you can see a white dot pice of circular paper, if it is red, your phone somehow got water in it, look at your battery(white dot paper) if it is red than you have water in you phone. now you need to dry it! leave it on your car dast board in the sun 24hrs or use a hair dryer ( use low heat) you must dry your phone and battery completely before the next step, Next step- find a good working battery and insert it in your phone, see if this will correct your problem, sometime the battery volt are very low or maybe the battery itself its bad, but make sure you put in a new battery to test this out, don't pay for the battery until you check you phone at the counter, ask for the right model for you phone.

good luck

Motorola Razor Water damage??


have talked with others who tried blow drying & then putting in freezer for few hours with phone & battery separate & yes the red normal after getting H2O damage shows the company out of warranty if you exchange phone through the warranty will be billed I think its like 110 or165 for At&t but if you call talk with them & tell them that phone stopped working screen blanked out & NO the red dot not there that it is white & ship your phone back when they receive it you will then be billed for it BUT when you call back in repeat OVER & OVER that when you sent it in that it was white & not your fault that warranty screwed up most of the time if you complain long enough you will get the charge removed :-) (work for cell company)
