Motorola Q water damage

My motorola Q was partially submerged in a puddle of water for about 6 seconds. Dots on phone and battery turned red. I let the phone dry out and got a new battery hoping it would work. Now it won't power up at all. Does this mean I now have to shell out $400.00 for new phone to replace it?

I dropped my phone in water and now the phone work sometimes. Is it possible to fix.


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

My motorola razr v3 screen keeps going all white!?!


first, make sure your Razr has no physical or water damage. If it's a T-Mobile phone, there will be a red sticker on the phone behind the battery. That indicates the phone as been exposed to water damage. Could mean the phone is shorting out on you. Now, I would suggest if the is NOT water damaged, to powercycle (turn off and on the phone) daily. Just off for about 30 seconds. Not long at all. If the white screen continues, do a master reset. Settings, -intial set up-master reset-code is 1234 or if you put in a different security code.
This will work!

Accidentally washed v176


You have a fair chance the sim is OK, so you can try that in another phone fronm the same Telco (Or an unlocked phone). Pretty much anything will do, from an older model to a pay as you go handset.

DO NOT turn the phone on until it's thoroughly dry. This can take nearly a week. Stick it near a warm source (but not hot!) to help accelerate it. If you can't live without a phone that long, then see above. :-)

Also your batter will be on its way out already, with shorter battery life.

All the red dots mean is that your phone is no longer under warranty. The dots will not turn back white when it dries.

Good luck!

Phone won't turn on/charge


Kikimenor: Advise. If this is your 3rd RAZR V3, you must encourage Cingular (Now is the new AT&T) to replace your whole unit with another model. A friend of mine exchange his phone 4 times, until Cingular replace it. Motorola had too many problems with RAZR phones and that's why they launch quickly the SLVR L7. They still producing the RAZR, because users love the style and shape of the phone, but reality is that Motorola had several heavy issues with RAZR (Bluetooth, batt, microphone, etc.) If you're paying for an insurance on your unit, encourage them to replace it.
