Use rice, put your phone in a baggie of rice.. the rice will soak up as much water as possible, then try it again.. trust me.. I left mine out in northern winter over night

Sounds to me like you have a new paperweight. If after drying it out for a few days it still doesn't work, time to get a new phone.

Due to the complex inner working of cell phones once they are dropped in water they are considered useless.

Ihave htc incredible was dropped in a water how to fix it ? and give me the address the shop to fix in houston.


There is no true way to fix water damage. What happens is the battery will short out some of the circuitry in the phone. You can try taking the battery out and putting the phone in a bag of dry rice to wick away the moisture.

I dropped my phone in tea, the phone still works but you cannot see anything on the display screen. Is there something I can do to fix it. Sony Ericsson Walkman W350a.


Short answer: No. Long answer: Your phone has water damage. Warranty is void if your phone has water damage. Since you KNOW you've dropped it in tea, you should consider it a lost cause and move on. For others - if you do something similar (dropped in water): Immediately turn it off. Take the battery out, then proceed to completely dismantle the whole phone. I have in the past used kleenex paper to tuck into places I can't dismantle, to get the water out, but they usually say to dismantle it, then let it completely air dry. It may take a week. If it, after it's completely dry, still works, then maybe you got lucky, and maybe it'll start acting up in a while, problem by problem as the electronics corrode inside the phone. I have heard of phones surviving water damage with only minor problems, but it's rare.

How do i fix my phone that i dropped in water without going to a shop?


Unfortunately, water and electronic devise don't mix.
You can try placing your phone in a plastic bag with uncooked white rice and let it sit for about a week.
then maybe it will dry out and you can try another battery.
Your battery is almost certainly toast.
Try a new battery and Pray it comes on.
If not, Buy a new phone, water damage is very hard to fix.

If this helps please leave me a vote

No Service... water damage


The best thing to try is to open the phone with torque 6 screwdrivers and to air it with an airblaster that you can get at any local electronics store. Other than that, something could have shorted out when it dropped in water.
