I'd say it's a better idea not to try it. Notify Creative's technical support and hopefully they'll be able to do something under your warranty. Either way, as far as I know, it's waterproof, I mean, I've fully submerged mine multiple times and it's still perfectly fine.

I accidently dropped my mp3 player in the bath, it is now dead, doing nothing, can it be revived? Many thanks.


Hi santhosam123

Chances are its toast, but it is worth a try...sometimes it works
***************************************

If you ever find that you have to deal with a wet device, don\'t just abandon it.
Instead, try the following method to repair the water damage:

DO NOT TURN IT ON!
Take it apart as much as you can. Take out the battery, the memory card and whatever else can be easily disassembled. (Just make sure you can put it back together.)
Store the parts in an air-tight container covered with either dry rice, silica gel packets or kitty litter. These will absorb the moisture from your electronics device, leaving it water-free.
If no rice, gel packets or kitty litter are available, try using a vacuum to suck the water out.
DO NOT blow-dry the parts, it will only force the water farther in and cause more damage.
Please take time to rate me.

I got water in my creative zen and it won't turn on. Is there any way of fixing this?


Probably not.
Remove the battery and place the player in a warm sunny dry place for several days until it drys out completely. Replace the battery, charge it and the see if will work.

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..

My son let his zen vision m get wet. does not function now, screen illuminates but no display. is there any way of retrieving data from it? pc does not see it when connected


Try to let it dry for a couple of days. Or use a hair dryer to just make sure water inside the unit will blown dry.

If it still won't show any display, I recommend that you have it checked by Zen's technician.

My creative zen fell in the water.


well, if this this recent, you should quickly get dring, usually, a hot fan would work, if you have a Dell Dimension 4700, there's a fan at the back, use that to fan off for a night or two, seccessful drying occurs when there is a cloud of water on the screen, like, it'll look dry OK? if it's too late, beleive me, Drop it in the water AGAIN, then immediatly dry it, i guarentee a chance of 75% seccessful rate.

How to change the battery


Have you tried going to the www.creative.com/support site? It's a very informative site for my ZEN V, even though I still can't figure out how the LCD display went black and has never recovered. I hope this helps.
