Praise the phone. It came back at all. The yellow light is normally displayed as part of a series of colors when you turn it on. My guess is no harm no foul.

I dropped my phone in water... And it won't turn


It's an electronic device so it would be very difficult if it'll fell in water. first remove its shell and then get a hair dryer and turn it to low. carefully blow dry the insides of your phone. if you are using an iphone it would be best to consult a phone tech.

How can i take my lg prime phone aprt so i can let it dry because i dropped it in water


Hi,

Hi, when ever a phone drops inside the water, first remove the battery cause the battery life might be damaged,and also in that process the phone is still working because the battery is still inside the phone.

You will need to service the phone for the phone to be free from water,cause if the water dries inside the phone it will damage an IC or a chip inside the phone and it might cause more damage to the phone.
you can use the below link to know how to disassemble LG phones,just type the model of the phone on the search box.

lg-phones.org/lg-optimus-7-disassembly-guide.html


After, disassembling the phone is the next step.Get a methylated spirit and a small brush, remove the board of the phone and deep the brush inside the methylated spirit,brush gently on the board of the phone. After brushing, get a dryer to dry up the board of the phone and live it for a while to dry.

After some minutes,assemble the phone back and fix in the battery. Make sure during the process you are charging the battery of the phone.

I guess that's all you need.

Hope it helped.

Thanks for using fixya..

I dropped the phone in water and it works but some of the keys stick for one thing, and the indicator light is yellow...


The water is not yet very dry from the phone and part of the phone panel might have been rust as a result of the water.

Remove the battery, loose the phone and heat the phone panel with bulb to allow the water dry very well.

But do not allow it over heat.

Take care.

I droped my voyager in water


HI,

if you drop your cell phone in water is to remove the battery immediately without even hesitating to turn off the power. This reduces the risk of a short circuit which would render your phone useless. Dry the batter with a towel and set aside to dry thoroughly.

.
After you have removed the battery, dry off the cell phone with an absorbent towel as best as you can. Use cotton swabs to soak up water in crevices and on any fragile, exposed circuits.

If you have dropped your cell phone in water, it is also helpful to disassemble it if you can and let all the parts dry separately.

Just be sure that you know how to put it back together. If it is a flip or sliding cell phone, leave it open for maximum evaporation.


If you drop your cell phone in liquid that isn’t pure water, you may want to try giving it an alcohol bath.

The alcohol will displace minerals and microscopic substances as well as aiding in the evaporation of the fluid. If it is available, you should use an alcohol concentration of 95% rather than rubbing alcohol that usually contains only 70%.


Once your phone is clean, leave it in a warm dry area or near an air conditioner for three days before you attempt to replace the battery and turn it on. This is very important, because although you may think that you have thoroughly dried it, the slightest moisture can react with the battery and cause it to short circuit. If drop your cell phone in water, and want to save it, resist the temptation of turning it on to see if it is working until you have waited at least 72 hours.


PLEASE USE HAIR DRYER TO DRY IT AND DONT CHARGE OR SWITCH IT ON FOR A DAY....................................

After dropping iphone in water phone is able to charge


Although the rice concept is a good idea, it is unlikely that it has aided in the evaporation of all moisture in the unit. I have fixed a number of 'dropped in water' devices (incl an IPOD nano) and I have followed the same process:
- take the unit apart
- remove battery, clean bat and charging terminals
- remove any connector (document where necessary) and leave out in open air to dry (or use a hair dryer on low setting / under a lamp).
- clean all connectors with rubbing alchohol.
In your case, pay close attention to the cable that supplies the screen and make sure the male and female ends are dry and clean. Also locate the backlight and see if there is any moisture around it.

I drop my phone


Give it a few days to dry out, remove the back and the batter and let those dry seperately. If you're lucky it will dry out and be usable. If not, you'll have to talk to your provider about replacement options. Good Luck.

My phone in salt water.


To anyone who drops their phone in salt water. Get the battery out immediately. When you get home or sooner if you can put the phone in something that will allow fresh water to immerse it entirely. Keep water running in the container for about 3 days continually flushing the phone. Now take all of the water out and fill the container with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol. Let the phone dry out for at least 2-weeks before trying a fully charged battery in it and turn it on. Should work and you have just saved yourself buying a new one. Then don't leave it in your pocket when you go to the beach, drop it in a Ferry Salt Water Toilet, etc., where it it is immersed in salt water. If it is most cell phone providers will refuse to even look at it from their tech depts. A Radio Tech/Inspector in Canada.
