Phone turned on after drying out now won't- help

I dropped my phone in the washer, immediately fished it out, took the battery out, and dried it out. It did turn on the next day, but now will not turn on. What can I do?? I just took some great pictures of my kids, and really want those too...

Did you try turning the phone on while it is plugged into the charger? Try removing the battery before plugging it in as well.

Water damage

I am sorry but whenever any modern day electronic equipment is exposed to water, especially if it was on. Then it will be a total loss. You see there is an instantaneous, chemical reaction, as soon as the water and the electronics mix. Current tracks, where it is NOT meant to be, and causes catastrophic damage, and no amount of "Drying out" will ever do anything, as the damage has already been done. You will have to get a new phone, it is as simple as that sorry.

I dropped my phone in the toilet. I took out the battery and let it dry. When i turned it back on the screen just says downloading error v5.50. I dont know what this means or how to fix my phone

Hello my friend,if the phone`s board is oxidized now there is nothing you can do anymore.You should immediately open your mobile unplug everything and try to dry everything with a hairdressers gun and leave the battery and the Sim card out for some hours when you dropped it into the water.Also make sure that Sim card and battery is completely dry before install it again.The only thing you can try is to go to your manufacture support site and download the latest firmware and reinstall it.

My samsung impression dropped in water and touch screen broke

I also dropped my Samsung Impression in the toilet, I immediately took the phone took the protective case off, took the battery cover off, and took the battery and my SIM card out and towel dried it as best as I could. Then I sat it on the floor next to my fan and let it dry until I got to my grandparents a little while later and I put it in a bowl of rice, completely covered the phone and battery with rice and left it sit overnight in the rice and all of the next day, so far i've had it on about 20 minutes and have had no problems with it so far, another solution is to sit it in the sun, to further dry it out. Water damage will void warranties on your phone and battery and your provider will know instantly if the damage was water related when they take your battery cover off, there is a small square sticker that when dry and hasn't touched water should be white, but as soon as it comes into contact with water it turns red, there is also one of these stickers on the battery. My stickers were red and after sitting in the rice they look like they got lighter in color considerably, I don't know if that is really possible but appearance wise it looks that way. I hope this helps anyone who has had this problem. Good Luck!

Phone wil not turn on

The best thing to do anytime the phone gets wet, is to immediately remove the battery. I dropped one into a pool. I took the battery out and let the thing dry for about a week. It worked fine until I got rid of it about a year and a half later. The key is to removing the battery. The moisture and power together are the lethal combination.

Dropped in Toilet

See if it will turn on when you remove battery and plug it into your charger. If it will you could recover the numbers with the Motorola software or the Carrier could.

Dropped my Sanyo Katana cell in a cup of soda!!

probably too late but he first thing to don in that sit. is rinse the phone in a 75/25 solution of alcohol and water. then open up as you did and let it dry. if you can see water on the display screen your probably out of luck but keep it warm and dry for a few days and see what happens.
