What do i need to do?


Never use a phone before it dries out completely. Take out the battery and put the phone and battery in a bag of uncooked rice for a day or two to get it dry, then put the battery back in, turn it on and hope.

How to Save Your Wet Cellphone Tech Clinic

There are a number of web sites that have suggestions on how to dry out a device. Although it's recommended that you do not use a hair dryer due to the possibility of heat damage, if you have a hair dryer with a no-heat setting, you can use it.. Some say that uncooked rice works pretty well, because the rice absorbs the moisture.

You can read more suggestions by doing a search on the web; "how to dry out a cell phone".

My phone ids a little wet


If your question is...my phone is a little wet, then take the battery out, wipe off all visible moisture, then put the phone in a bowl of uncooked white rice, completely covering the phone and leave it for a couple of days. The rice will draw out the moisture and usuall this works pretty good.

The trackpad does not work anymore. How can I fix it?


You would need to take the phone apart and replace the trackpad. You can find a trackpad on ebay for about $12-15. If you are interested you can contact us and send it in for us to fix it. If you buy the trackpad yourself we would just charge you for labor, otherwise we would charge you for the trackpad + labor.

Iphone got wet. camera shutter is stuck closed


you might have a lot of corrosion inside your phone.

try to open it up and clean it very well with alcohol.

the main camera does not work probably because of corrosion on its connector to the main board.

see the picture I took a few days ago:

My phone got wet


Try removing the battery, using a blow dryer to air everything out in battery compartment. If there are any tiny screws or way to open up the phone itself, open it up, and blow everything inside there too.

Let it dry out completely and then see if it will work again. My guess is no, because once the circuits get wet, they are pretty much damaged and irrepairable.

Hope this helps at least some. Good luck!

Spilled water on BB Curve


After getting a phone wet, the best way to dry it out safely and quickly is to pull the battery and bury the phone in a bowl filled with (uncooked) rice for a day. The rice acts as a desiccant and remove any excess moisture.

If the phone still does not work correctly, it may be time to find a replacement.

My cell phone briefly got wet in our pool. We have dried it out and now it only works off and on.

My BB Curve got wet this past weekend and now when


Place your Blackberry into a plastic bag with a half of a cup of uncooked white rice.
The rice will help absorb moisture from the inside of the phone.
Leave it there for a few days and try it again .
don;t use the phone right now at all, putting power into a wet phone can and will make it worse,
take the battery out and do the rice thing.
if you have a week wait a week and remove it from the rice.
Good Luck and Thanks for using FixYa
