How to dry a Mobile phone thet you spilled water on or dropped in water !

Dont worry yet! Maybe your water spilled device is a gonner but let's be optimistic!

You should do the steps bellow as soon as possible.

-Disconnect from outlet (if connected).
-Remove the battery (if possible).
-Dry it with a towel.
-Cautiously! with a hairdryer blow it dry! even inside the compartment, if you have access. Have patience! keep on for few minutes!
-Putting in raw rice for a day or two can help to dry it further.

Even if these steps do not help to revive it, they will definitely maximize your chances for your device to be accepted by the manufacturer to be repaired under warranty/guaranty!

Good luck!

How to take apart canon pixma 432. Spilled soda in it, need to clean inside.

Hi Daniel,
Let me say, up front, that I am not a printer guru. My background is in biomedical electronics, but this procedure works in most applications. Take distilled water and pour a small amount into the area where the soda was spilled. Wait a few minutes to allow the water to dissolve the dried soda. Then pour in more distilled water to flush out the residual soda. Allow to dry. The water should rinse out the soda, and when it dries it will leave no contaminates of its own. This procedure works well on medical devices such as telemetry transmitters and cell phones that have been spilled on. I hope this helps. Thanks for asking Fixya. Dan

Water spilled on the display

Not sure exactly what happened but I do know if anything wet spills on anything electronic... computer, tv, cell/mobile phone etc, I've gotten them all to work by pulling panels apart(when possible) and letting dry out and sometimes drying it with a hair dryer. Item should be left out to dry for quite a few days. Do not do this with any current hooked up.

Spill beer on my blackberry 8780, did the rice technquie, work fine till later in the evening. when i put the battery in it goes on n jump into safe mode? then my phone on lock so the crusor wont seem to...

You didn't let it dry out all the way so the liquid in there is acting like a conductor screwing everything up . The computer inside shut down to save itself. What you have to do is take out battery and sim card and then cover to expose insides. let air dry in well ventilated space for 24 hours and then start over. It should work but it might have been too late and in which case you need a new phone. If you ever get anything electronic wet, shut it down immediately take apart and let air dry and in some cases if the goo is too bad then you need to take an alcohol swab and clean off the components. Electronics are great but they are not invincible.

Dropped my samsung eternity in water

You phone needs to be taken apart and dried out. You probably shorted the battery, it will need to be replaced. If it got really wet, boards start to corrode and phone may not be fixable. Every connection on phone needs to be taken apart and dried, hopefully your phone will work again. Sometimes I get them to work again, and sometimes I don't. Good Luck

Got wet , camera stoped working

Remove the battery immediately and dry it up with your hair dryer without heat. Dry it for a long time as water may have gone deep inside. Then you can insert the battery with the fingers crossed. And hope that it powers on. If it does not power on then friend, I am sorry to say, it may be too late. With the battery and water inside the phone may have burnt some circuits. We hope not in your case. All the best to your phone.

Verizion LGvx5400 fell in toilet

  The main effect of water is on the motherboard of the cellphone.
In case, it has not affected the working of cellphone/motherboard inside that, you can keep the cell in dry temperature for  few hours, you can use a dryer or you can open the lcd/screen panel and you can also use soft cotton to keep it dry.
Thanks for using Fixya.

My phonne!!!!

hi there,

very common fault with cell phones - they don't behave well in water. If it has damaged the phone inside not much can be done in way of fixing but it's worth trying to take it apart and leaving it in an airing cupboard. This means covers battery sim case, take off as much as you can. The more the better. This willl allow as much moisture as possible to dry out. (this may well take a few days though so be paitent) If this doesn't work you make have caused the boards to short out - if this is the case it'll be more expensive to get it repairded physically than buying a new one.

Hope this is of some help
