Drop in water want come back on

hopefully you have not ruined it by turning it on. But this fix it has actually worked you can put your phone and battery in a bowl of raw rice and let it stay there for a whole day it should be ok if not you need a new phone. What usually ruins it is trying to turn it on while wet. use the rice thing. I tried it before and it actually works.

There are times we have all got our cell phones wet. A lot of times we might be brushing are teeth, and were so worried about missing a phone call that we put it by the sink, and before you know it your elbow hits the phone and right in the sink it goes. OR the toilet...ewww

Your heart races, and you can't seem to even grab the phone fast enough to get it out of the sink. It almost becomes that old restaurant saying of the 10 second rule. You know the one that that says, if you drop a piece of food on the floor and pick it up with in 10 seconds that it is alright, because the germs have not got on it yet.
Well, with a phone it is kind of like the same thing, except my idea works with patience and will save you some money and save you those very important phone calls you might be missing .
Like: Wife calling cause your out of bread, or Best friend calling to brag about the Giants should of won, but referee made a bad call. You know those real important calls. Here is where I can help you.
First of after you get your phone wet like drop in shower, sink, puddle, or rained on or even the toilet.
You take it out of course, then first thing is take the battery out set it aside and send card out. Get a blow dryer, turn on med heat, and have it back at least 6 to 8 inches, and dry it in every area you can. Battery compartment included.
Next step. Is get your self a lunch size plastic baggy or plastic container that has a lid. And some regular white rice. Fill bag or container with the rice about 3/4 full. mc1bean_1.jpg

Put the whole phone in the bag or container, and with the battery after drying off the battery by hand.(do not put send card in, this dry by hand and set aside) make sure phone and battery is completely sum-urged under the rice. then close the plastic bag or lid on container air tight. Set on counter in cool dry area. Let sit overnight or at least 10 to 15 hours.
Then after that, take phone out and battery, dust off rice grains good. I like to use a can of compressed air ( get at any computer section of any store that sells computers) and blow out phone good. Now put battery back in phone and send card and DO NOT TURN ON YET, but put on charger and wait until completely charged and then turn phone on and you should have phone working again.
If not, then is possible might have to repeat or you have damage some circuits that need to be replaced.
This will solve that wet phone problem most the time, so you can get back to those ever so important calls, like friend calling to let you know who the runner up is on american idol..... Hope this helps MIke

Got wet and won't turn on

Try this old trick... take out any external things such as battery etc, and put the whole lot under some uncooked rice...
The rice absorbs any water. Leave it there for a few days.
If the circuitry isnt fried, then it could come back to life, ive done it before with phones.

You can also try it with a very VERY low oven heat.. Like 60C,( 140F)

Malfunctioning after getting wet due to rain

Take the battery out of your phone and put your phone and the battery inside of a bag full of dry white rice. Seal the bag and leave it for 24-48 hours. After that time, take it out and see if the keys work like normal again. (White rice absorbs moisture quickly and will dry out your phone quickly)

Thanks for asking.

I have a great land tent and we went camping this past weekend and got soaked is their any garentee on the product or replacement. The front sheild canopy pole also snapped in half very unsatisfied and...

did you set tent up at home once and soak ot down with water and let it completely dry before using it?
I have several greatland tents and never have trouble
When it is raining the most important thing to do is to make SURE that nothing is touching the tent material on the inside as to that is what causes water to start to leak thru .Just like a wick. Once the tent gets wet the fibers swell and seal the material stoping the water from coming thru and this getting wet is actually the only waterproofing needed . Taking a tent down wet or damp defeats this and must be setup again and soaked and allowed to dry all over again.As for warranty you have to check the owners manual, The pole having snapped sounds like its possible it was put in place in the wrong spot

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

Razr V3 water damage

Sounds dire. If you look inside the back of the phone, there should be a small spot that turns from white to pink when the phone gets wet. If that spot is bright pink, most repairers won't even bother trying to fix it. Best off buying another phone!
