I beg to differ on the method of drying a phone, the circuitry is very small and very sensitive to exessive heat, be it heat-gun, hair-dryer, or space-heater. A much safer option would be to bury your phone in a bowl of dry, absorbant granules. Rice, for instance can **** the water from your phone after a stay of two days or more in a sealed container like a sandwhich bag. Hope this helps (even though it's three months later...), TechnoWolfy.

***First when your phone is dropped in any kind of liquid (water, coca cola,etc) you hae to remove the battery immediatly! DO NOT POWER THE PHONE ON! If you do so your chances of saving your phone will drop from 50% to a low 5%. If your phone is powered on when it still has water or humidity in it that can cause a major short circuit within the main board of the phone.***

Answer to your question:

Just take out the back panel of the phone then you should see some screws. From there it's up to you, have fun!

It's best to use an electric heat gun to dry the phone, but dont put it to close to the phone or it will melt it. I saved a lot of phones with this gun.

You need to leave the phone off for about 42-72hours for the water to dry off competly and you can do this by putting the phone in a place where heat is generated for to dry up the water inside the phone.

My phone screen went blank after dropping in the toilet

You should have left it dry instead of turning it on, you probably have corrosion now, find a local place that works on phones to see if they'd work on it.

If you want to try to completely dry it, put it in rice for 24 hours minimum to draw out all moisture.

I have a Nokia N90 and it fell in a bucket of water,it submerge for about 6 secs after grabbing it out.I dried it off and imediately run a blow dryer on it,but not getting any display on screen,but it...

The best way to treat a phone after water submersion is to remove the battery immediately and allow it to dry near a radiator or other gentle heat source. Sometimes burying the handset in dry rice will speed up the drying out process.
Be prepared to take it in for repair if the above doesn't work.
If it's insured you should be covered for water damage.

My phone also fell into a bucket full of water. I just gave the phone to the service center for repair and it's now absolutely fine.

I would suggest you to do the same. Also, don't try to switch on the phone as it may lead to short circuit in your phone.

Thank You

Phone in water

Don't turn it on. Take battery off. Put in a bowl or bag of dry white rice, Leave for 3 days. If you are lucky it will be ready to charge and like new after the rice pulls the moisture out.

Water damaged Moto razor

I know you don't want to here this, so be kind with your rating, but the best solution is a new phone. The reason is this: no matter what you do, water is a conductor and the dried residue it leaves behind will also short things out. And water will get to places that you can't.

Sorry, hope that helped save you some time...
