Question about Samsung Audio Players & Recorders

I have a problem with my mic in SAMSUNG GS 5230.There was a big water fight in our city and i was all wet and i had my phone in pants for the whole time.I guess it got damaged by water now the other people can barely hear me when i call em, only when i yell straight to the microphone, there's also very noisy buzz.Is there any way to fix this?Maybe the water is still inside?

Unfortunately, it is very likely that you still have water/moisture in your phone and more specifically in your inbuilt microphone.
You can try to carefully 'dry' your phone at your own risk of course by doing the followings:
1) remove the battery & simm card and leave the cover off
2) use tissue paper to soak away any obvious moisture
3) use fresh dry tissue paper to wrap your unit and gently but vigorously spin and shake your phone to draw out any additional moisture (you can see if the tissue is moist as a result)
4) use a hair dryer or hand dryer to VERY CAREFULLY warm your phone to evaporate the remaining moisture from the battery compartment side: hold it while you are doing it as if it the air is too hot for your hand then it is too hot for your phone! Alternatively, just leave the phone near a warm (NOT HOT) place for at least a couple hours with the battery compartment still open.
5) reassemble and test: if the electronic/mic is not damaged, it shoud be back to normal!

Hope it helps!

If the phone got wet and the screen went out. That means there's water damage and the phone is fried.

Keep phones AWAY from water at all times. Water resistant or not.

Frigidaire 24' doesnot clean the dishes after complete wash cycle. sometimes it seems as if the top rack does'nt even get wet please advise

ron singh, Have you just moved in to this home? I recently had this same your water from a well? or is the city water from a well.I just moved from the big city to a smaller suburb out the city. The water in the new place is extremely hard. all of our silverware and glasses had a coating on them. The heated dry cycle made even worse. we had to install a water softener for the whole house. This also helped in the showers and washing machine. The film will go away after softener is installed. There is nothing wrong with the dishwasher.
Hope this helpsJoe Connolly

I phone isn't is not starting....water fell on it....just tell ...can it be repaired.???? please and thank you

after it got wet and you tried to turn it on, most likely you will need a new hardware, since some circuits got short. but after getting it wet and you did not turn it on and make sure its dry(inside out) there is a big chance that it will turn on as normal. try to put in a box with rice for a 3 days or so, rice will absorb the moisture from your phone.

Nokia 5230 fell into water it was opened to dry but now phone unable to read or pickup memory card

You need to try Silica Gel Packets to dry out your phone. There was a good article on that explains how to dry a wet cell phone, iPods, or any electronics.

You need to place your cell phone in a zip lock bag with Silica Gel Packets. Silica Gel will remove all the moisture from the phone and its components, something air drying will not do!

Just Google "Silica Gel Packets" and you will find several companies selling these products. There is also a web site called: that has them.

Clothes have dry spots in load

Close your faucet valve & unscrew your hoses to check screens on hoses & machine. Clean out well. Water shd be in good pressure at faucet. Refit, check for leaks. If this is not the problem change your inlet valve, it is easily done.

For spares: (model,make,etc)
