Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Cell got wet

Dropped cell in water while on. Retrieved within a second or two and the phone went screwy then died. Had it drying in rice for two weeks and in the oven a couple of times to get any last moisture out. Model is LG Muziq, and I know the battery is dead, but when I plug it in without the battery the lg muziq screen comes on most times and the no battery page comes up every now and again. Do you think the phone is salvageable?

As the battery is dead you must buy a new battery and insert it ...

surely it will work ...

i think you may get some screen problems after switching on ...

if so remove the handset & screen too and adjust it again ....
this may happen if there is any water traces ...

When I turn it on after 5 second is turning off


make sure it is completely charged. If it was dropped in water or got wet sometimes leaving it in dry rice over night might help.

Cell phone was dropped into water and is wet how do I dry it out?


Do not turn on the device. Place it in a bag of rice for a few days. The rice should absorb all the moisture. Good luck!

Hope that helps!

I dropped my phone in water, then I put it in rice after that my screen did'nt come on, what do I do?


Wet Cell Phone
Immediately remove the phone from the water,turn off the cell phone remove the battery and SIM card. When you have driedthe cell phone by putting in a warm sunny place for several days or in front ofa warm fan heater for several hours then reassemble the phone. Hopefully itwill work properly but if does not work then it is faulty and you need a newcell phone.

My nokia phone fell in water and is not Switching on again


Accidents happen with phones and water but it doesn't always mean that all hope is lost. Below is a brief guide as to what you should do if your phone has been totally immersed in water.

1. Take the phone out of the water as quickly as possible.

2. Do not attempt to switch it on as this may cause further damage.

3. Remove the battery as quickly as you can, also remove the memory and sim cards.

4. If dropped in fresh water dry it off with a towel. If dropped in salt water rinse it thoroughly with fresh water. I know it sounds crazy getting it wet again but salt can cause a lot of internal damage such as corrosion. Again dry with a towel. You may also want to rinse it if you dropped it in a toilet.

5. Place the phone, battery and it's wet accessories in a plastic container (like a lunch box) and completely cover it with uncooked rice, use plenty of it. Again this sounds crazy but rice has desiccating properties that help draw the water out of the phone. Do not place a lid on the container.

6. Place the container somewhere very warm and dry for at least 3 days. An airing cupboard is often the ideal place.

7. Do not use a hair dryer directly on the phone to speed up the process. Too much heat can cause even more damage.

This isn't guaranteed to work but many people have successfully revived their phones and retrieved their data using this method.

Keep in mind that your phone is on borrowed time after you do this. Make it your first priority to retrieve any data that you would like to keep. It may only work for a few minutes, days, weeks, months or it may even last years.

You should monitor the phone carefully during charging. If it gets very hot the battery may be damaged and should be replaced.

After any exposure to water you no longer have a warranty as water damage is not covered. Any insurance policies on the phone may also be voided unless you are covered for accidental damage.

A more efficient alternative to rice is silica gel. You most likely won't have enough of the stuff to hand when the accident happens but it is good to use. Silica gel can be bought from electronic wholesalers like this example. Thank you to shuntfield for this information.

Good luck!

Lg rumor is wet


You shud remove the battery and use your hairdryer without heat on it and dryup all the water traces and moisture. Try it many times. And then put the battery back and switch it on and see it work.

Dropped my phone in sink of water


You may have caused a short in the device. Basically once your cellphone is exposed to water, the best solution would be to IMMEDIATELY remove the battery, and place the device in a bowl of rice. The rice serves to absorb the moisture, and within a day, should restore your phone :D.

It doesn't hurt to take it apart and dry it by hand though, but by trying to use a non-dry phone you may have to get a new one.

Due to the complex inner working of cell phones once they are dropped in water they are considered useless.
