Happened to me with a Nokia I owned. Unfortunately, water and electronics don't mix. Not sure how wet it got, but obviously wet enough to screw with the internal components.
What better reason to get an upgrade. ;)

My phone had water damage for quit a while now and the screen light is very dim.i tried making it brighter but it was at its highest point already. help pllz

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

Try this : This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.

This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

How Do i Fix The Sidekick2008 Hardware Problem

I'm sorry to say it is probably to late, even a little wet is still more than it should be. You should have removed the battery first thing, then let everything dry completely.

If even the least bit of water found it's way inside, and you were still using it(even just powered on), your cell could short out or cause hardware damage.

You can try taking the battery out, and placing the phone and battery inside a bowl with some rice..close it up...wait at least a full day to pull out any water that may be inside. May be to late for that to work tho.

Sorry to hear about your luck, thank you for trying Fixya!

My sidekick fell in water , like normal water . And well everytime i use it it says something like " sidekick is having some techinically difficultie plz contact ur nearest t-mobile store " it works fine...

Ok, You need some assistance for that. You should get some precision screws and unscrew your mobile. The get a hair drier and put it on (Hot) or the Red button and start drying the Main board of your Sidekick. But be careful with unscrewing your device, as you may forget some screws.
