My son left his LG Neon in the pocket of his pants and it was washed in the washing machine. We took the back cover off, removed battery and chip and dried in the sun for over a day. Phone will NOT turn on, nor does it indicate battery is charging when hooked to the charger. This phone is on the AT&T Go Plan, and per AT&T, since the moisture indicator has turned red, the warranty has been voided. Per LG, I can send the phone in for repair but most likely it will be sent back unrepaired since moisture has entered the phone.
Are we out of luck? Is there a way to get the phone working without spending a lot of money? Is he better off buying a new phone?

So someone, whose clothes are washed in your machine, picks up "crud" on his or her clothes. (My dad used to collect "crud" in his pants cuffs and pants pockets, so my mom would make sure she emptied the pockets and cuffs over a wastebasket before putting his clothes in the washing machine.)
First, make sure pockets, cuffs, and whatever else clothing parts might collect "crud" are emptied over a wastebasket prior to placing in the washing machine.
"Crud" like pet hair or disintegrated facial tissue left in a pocket may still be left over in a washing machine tub after clothes are removed. I use a wet sponge to wipe out the washing machine tub when ever I see left over "crud."
Newer washing machines have lint traps, which are not as easy to access as those on clothes dryers. The washing machine lint trap may need cleaning out.
This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model FRONT LOADING washing machines.If you experience a problem where the washer does not drain properly or the drain pump makes excessive noise, here’s the information you need to check the drain pump: Symptom: PUMP IS RUNNING, BUT NOT DRAINING PROPERLY.
Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.
Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the three 7mm screws under the bottom edge of the panel.HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws.Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off.If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.
Locate the drain pump.It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).
There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap.BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.
Here’s a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water.If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac.This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines.If you don’t own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle.Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water.Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.
Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained.Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris.Check the pump impeller and make sure there’s nothing caught in it.Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.
Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover.Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.
Place the drain hose back in the standpipe (IMPORTANT – DO NOT FORGET!).
With the bottom panel still off, plug the washer back in and select the following on the operator console – DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN, and then press any button under OPTIONS 4 times (it must be the same button).“C00” will show on the console display as the washer begins diagnostics mode.
Check the drain pump for leaks as the washer fills.The pump is gravity filled and will hold water even it is not pumping.Allow washer to run through diagnostics until it begins the wash tub tumble cycle.
At this point, you can stop the diagnostics procedure by pressing PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times.The drain pump energizes and the washer will begin to drain.
If the drain pump works normal and there are no leaks detected, reinstall the bottom panel and tighten screws.
NOTE: It is normal to have residual water left inside the wash tub under the wash basket.This is why it is important to leave the door ajar when not in use so this water does not become sour.
ribbon cable is just pushed into where it came out of. There will be a locking mechanism on the point of connection. Ribbon wont go in all of the way until it is in the unlocked position. Once inserted, lock it again.
I had the same problem. Take it to a local cell phone repair shop. They can order you another LCD Screen and you will be back up and running!! note: do not keep your phone in your pocket!! Please use a phone case and purchase the LG Neon LCD protector!
If you've been trying to turn it on, then it's unlikely to work again.
If anything like that happens again, "DON'T TURN IT ON". Take the item
apart carefully keeping the screws together and leave the parts spread
out in a warm dry place like an airing cupboard for about a week. Then
put it back together and cross your fingers.
