The manfacturers have a device within the cell phone that tells them if it got wet, which unfortunately voids any warantee. I've had luck in the past by doing this:

1. Remove the battery (important)
2. If possible, disassemble the unit as much as possible. Blow the unit out with compressed air. If that's not possible, just let it sit out and dry for at least a few days.
If you can't take the unit apart at all, just take out the battery and set the device in the sun for a few days. The object is to dry out the unit with the battery removed.

After it's dried out the best you think it's going to be, put the battery back in and give it a go. There are no guarantees with this as it doesn't always work.

Good luck.

My htc incredible s won't charge, I've tried


It sounds like the charging port on your phone is broken. This could have happened a number of ways. Either by dropping your phone, putting the charger in wrong, or taking it out wrong. If you call HTC(866-449-8358) and it is still under warranty they will probably fix it for free as long as it doesn't have any water damage(http://www.ehow.com/how_4479971_check-cell-phone-water-damage.html). Otherwise you could also get a new phone.

Water problem with cell phones


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.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />After, disassembling the phone is the next step.<br />Get a phone screw and unscrew the phone from the back by removing the battery and you will see some screws, unscrew possible screws and open the phone.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />I guess that's all you need.<br /><br />Note: if the battery has stayed too too long on the phone and am sorry after the water splash, it might not come on after this all process, that means you will have to flash the phone because the battery might have damaged the memory of the board of the phone and will not power up the phone because the phone is too weak to power.<br /><br />Flashing of the phone will restore back the phone memory.<br /><br />You can visit the web to learn more about flashing of phones.<br /><br />

How to Fix a Wet Cell Phone


  • Get it out of the water as soon as possible. The plastic covers on cell phones are fairly tight, but water can enter the phone in a short period of time, perhaps only 20 seconds or less. So grab your phone quickly! If you can't get to it in time, your best bet is to remove the battery while it is still under water. Water helps dissipate heat from shorts that can damage the phone, so most damage occurs when the inside of the phone is merely wet and there is a power source. This can go both ways. Being under water is more likely to short the battery to even more sensitive contacts, so be careful.
  • Don't panic. Your phone will probably not be too damaged if you take it out of the water right away.
  • Remove the battery. This is one of the most important steps. Don't take time to think about it; electricity and water do not mix. Cutting power to your phone is a crucial first step in saving it. Many circuits inside the phone will survive immersion in water provided they are not attached to a power source when wet.
  • If you have a GSM career, remove your SIM card. Some or all of your valuable contacts (along with other data) could be stored on your SIM. To some people this could be more worth saving than the phone itself. SIM cards survive water damage well, but some of the following steps are unnecessary i.e. don't heat it. Just pat it dry and leave it aside until you need to connect your phone to your cellular network. (This step does not apply to CDMA carriers such as Verizon, Alltel, US Cellular, Sprint, etc.)
  • Dry your phone. Obviously you need to remove as much of the water as soon as possible, so you can save it from getting into the phone. Shake it out without dropping it, then use a towel or paper towel (ideally trying not to clog the wet paper in the gaps and grooves of the phone) to gently remove as much of the remaining water as possible. Dry the excess moisture by hand.
  • Remove any covers and external connectors to open up as many gaps, slots, and crevices in the phone as possible.
  • Use a vacuum cleaner if possible. Do not use a hair dryer (even on a "cold" mode) to dry out the phone, as this may force moisture further into the small components, deep inside the phone. If moisture is driven deeper inside, corrosion and oxidation may result when minerals from liquids are deposited on the circuitry. Using a hairdryer might be a temporary fix, but this will eventually cause component failure inside the phone. Instead, remove all residual moisture by drawing it away with a vacuum cleaner held over the affected areas for up to 20 minutes in each accessible area. This is the fastest method and can completely dry out your phone and get it working in thirty minutes. Be careful not to hold the vacuum too close to the phone, as a vacuum can create static electricity, which is even worse.
  • Use a substance with a high affinity for water to help draw out moisture. Leave the phone in a bowl or bag of uncooked rice overnight. The rice would absorb any remaining moisture. If available, it is preferable to use desiccant instead. Desiccant will absorb moisture better than rice.
  • Let the phone sit on absorbent towels, napkin, or other paper. Remember that the goal is to evacuate all the moisture and humidity, not to trap it or add even more. Check the absorbent material every hour for 4 to 6 hours. If moisture is evident, repeat the vacuuming step and desiccant steps.
  • Test your phone. After you have waited a day or so, make sure everything is clean and dry looking and re-attach the battery to the phone and see if it works. If your phone does not work, try plugging it into its charger without the battery. If this works, you need a new battery. If not, try taking your cell phone to an authorized dealer. Sometimes they can fix it. Don't try to hide the fact that it has been wet. There are internal indicators that prove moisture.
  • Take the phone apart If your phone doesn't turn on at all. Try taking it apart. First, make sure that you have ALL the right parts and know exactly where they go. Be sure to put everything back in its proper place once finished. As you're disassembling it, pat each individual part dry with a small towel and use the vacuum cleaner once more on the crevices. If this doesn't work go to the professionals.

    How should i remove water stains in my cell?


    It sounds like the phone's screen capillaries soaked up the water, and unfortunately there really isn't much you can do aside from replacing the LCD.


    Replacements range from $20 - $30 on amazon and ebay. If you've ever worked on an iPod and were successful, this should be a cake walk to do.


    People have tried using alcohols or ammonia in these cases, but those are risky solutions and are likely to further damage the LCD. I would advise against using any chemical fixes.


    You may also get lucky; it's possible that the water trapped within the screen capillaries may evaporate over time.

    Dropped phone in water for about 2 sec and pulled it apart right way and let it dry, can it be fixed


    Hi,

    problem can be solved.When a phone drops into water the water stays inside the phone.When the water dries insid the board of the phone, it might bridge two IC together and cause demage or makes the phone to act in a strange way.

    In order to remove the water from the phone the phone needs to be serviced for it to work properly.

    Get a screw driver that can loosen the screws on the phone, unscrew and remove the board of the phone, get a methylated spirit and a brush to clean the board in other to remove the water inside the phone.

    After brushing the board, leave it to dry for 10 minutes and fix it back into the phone and the phone will be back to live.

    NOTE: if you can lose the phone , i would advice you take it to a mobile engineer to fix it for you in other to cause further damage to the phone.

    Have a nice day.
