Dropped phone in water puddle

My daughter dropped my phone during a thunderstorm. It was out there a minute or two before she realized it. I've let it dry for over a week. The main display is completely red and the front display reads, "download". Also the phone will not power down. The battery works in another phone.

My brand new LG Cosmos Touch phone won't turn on. Installed battery and ran through start-up and phone seemed fine. It then downloaded updated software, still fine. Plugged in charger to charge battery...


I bet you got help and fixed it already, but I had the same problem. Just before it stopped working, I dropped it in a puddle by a curb and I thought that killed it. I didn't realize that my battery was dead! That was it, so charge it!

Why using a telephone during a lightning strom is dangerous?


Hi

Lightning routinely gets into copper telephone cables during storms and can overwhelm the fusing protectors at your home and enter a telephone set, causing a lot of immediate damage to the telephone and the user.

Lightning can travel from outside your home to inside your home—and to you—through materials that conduct electricity, including electrical wiring, phone lines, water, and plumbing. These safety guidelines will help minimize your risk.


If you need to use the phone corded phones are dangerous during thunderstorms. Lightning traveling through the telephone wires has killed people. Cell phone and cordless phones are a safer choice, but stand away from the cell or cordless phone's power base



Hope this will help you.

Olympus FE210 Will not switch on


You opened the camera?!!! You're not supposed to do that. If the camera was turned on before the water was gone, there could have been a short circuit.

Keep getting download message


You may still have water in tight places due to water surface tension. Open all the access doors, take out the SIM card, battery and anything else that is removable and put all parts in a ziplock bag. Get some dessicant bags (from old shoe boxes), cardboard pieces, saltine crackers and put them in the ziplock bag also and put on top of your microwave oven (if it is used a lot) or in the window where it gets direct sunlight. Leave it there until moisture gets on the bag then disappears again (3-5days) The dry items in the ziplock will help draw out all the moisture better than air drying. I have done this many times on cell phones, gameboys, etc. and it works everytime.

Dropped phone in puddle only screen is broken PLEASE HELP MEE!!!!


Unfortunately, I would suggest you not trying to fix this. The reason is once water gets inside, any of the parts that got wet will eventually corrode. It might work a day, a week, I actually had my phone work 2 months, then it will stop. You could replace the screen and have it work right away, but nobody could gaurantee that it will continue.

Voice mail outage


You can try unplugging the power supply and phone lines for a few minutes. Then reattach the phone lines and power up to re-boot.
Our Vodavi 5000-00 used to blink off during thunderstorms until it finally fried. This is how we used to reset it.

Phone won't turn on/charge


Kikimenor: Advise. If this is your 3rd RAZR V3, you must encourage Cingular (Now is the new AT&T) to replace your whole unit with another model. A friend of mine exchange his phone 4 times, until Cingular replace it. Motorola had too many problems with RAZR phones and that's why they launch quickly the SLVR L7. They still producing the RAZR, because users love the style and shape of the phone, but reality is that Motorola had several heavy issues with RAZR (Bluetooth, batt, microphone, etc.) If you're paying for an insurance on your unit, encourage them to replace it.
