    my phone wont work after going through the washing machine it worked afterwards but not now 

  • amber1112 Mar 30, 2008

    My phone was dropped in a bathtub filled with water.



    it was completely submerged for at least 5 seconds and the red dot came up inside my phone.



    its been about a week. i took the battery out stright away, and started blow drying my phone.



    the battery is totally screwed. so i bought a new battery.

    Now the phone will turn on, and after like 30 seconds, it will turn off by itself.





    i have blow dried it, put it in my dryer for clothes, and have put it on my heater. it seems to turn on for a longer time each time.



    but im afraid my phone is just completely doomed.

    is there anything more i can do?

I had my phone in my purse and a water bottle opened up and spilled all over. My phone was able to turn on but the touch screen did not work at all it just beeped.

To fix it all I did was got an eye glass repair screwdriver that you can get at any Walgreens or CVS for around $2. I unscrewed the back screws (there's 5) and took off the top back panel, blow dried it on very low heat for a while and let it sit over night with out the cover. In the morning it worked like new.

Hope this helps.

You all have to open the phone up, and dry the electronics completely, often with submersion, water seeps into crevices, and WILL NOT DRY. The best way to dry the phone is to clean it with distilled water, then place it in an oven set to approximately forty degrees celcius for about four hours, then letting it cool off overnight in a very dry environment. Taking the case off will void the warranty. Its best if you have a professional do it.
In some cases the boot memory (the programs that start your phone) will be damaged, this is unrepairable except by an expert. You won't know if its damaged until you try to turn the thing on again.
You must ensure that you are carrying no static charge at any time, by ensuring you are properly earthed. Static WILL damage delicate circuitry.
Your battery, is most likely cactus.

I have the same problem with my phone. I don't know about eating it though.

When opened up it seems like there are some mineral deposits on different contacts inside the phone. Mine also has a blown transistor also. If I could find a schematic and parts list, I would replace the blown transistor ans clean up the mineral deposits with alcohol. It might work then. If anyone can find these items let me know where

I have a phone that got wet, not totally submerged though and was able to get it working again. I took the phone apart and using alcohol cleaned anything that looked like it could be corroded. Keem in mind that the circuit board is extremely delicate and unless you are accustomed to working with electronics I would stay away from touching the board. I would keep it away from the heater, blow dryer is okay. The most important thing is to take it apart to allow the nooks and crannies to dry out. I have had friends do that and only that and got them working again. Get the phone apart and blow dry, let sit, blow dry, let sit etc... Do this for several days to a week and then, only then give it another try. If you didn't fry anything already this might work.

I washed my enV in the washer and at first it worked great except the call button wouldnt work. Now the front screen wont work and my vibrate is louder than my ringtones, so I took a Qtip and a bleach pen and bleached the little red circle back to white and turned it into warrenty.

    Did they accept it and send you a new phone? I have the same problem with the dot having tuned red, but i've never gotten my phone wet, so i'm trying to turn the color back to white so i can get a new one from them, since i never got it wet.

How is Seal Up Liquid Glass Metallic used for a blown head gasket problem...the car is a 2004 Infiniti G-35. Need step by step instructions. Thank You. Eric and Gina


Hi Eric and Gina:
A radiator stop leak product may or may not solve (and that means TEMPORARILY) a head gasket problem.
It also will only work if the head gasket has failed between the cyliner and water jacket.
FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS THAT CAME WITH PRODUCT.
General practice would be (with the engine cool) to remove enough coolant to allow adequate space for the product. Add the product to the radiator through the fill cap. Top up with coolant. Run for minimum 10 to 15 minutes unless there is a lot of white smoke.
Allow to cool. Top up coolant in radiator and reservoir..
Best of luck

Hola tengo una camara webcam creative live, cambien de computador y no me lo acepta que puedo hacer gracias por tu ayuda


hola melivaob...

aquí tienes un enlace a la página de drivers para webcams de Creative, no creo que el modelo que tienes aparece en la lista principal, pero abajo de todo hay otro link que te lleva a otra página donde puedes elegir entre muchos... pero muchisimos!

a la derecha de la página principal hay un elace encima de los imagenes de los cams que pone 'aprende a identificar su producto'... si la segunda página te parece difícil... vuelve a la primera y siga el enlace para poder saber exacatmente lo que buscas.

lo haria por ti, pero no tengo bastante información para hacer la búsqueda.

espero que eso te ha ayudado, y avisame si tienes alguna otra pregunta...
