If your phone got wet, you need to dry it up right away. You can use a blower or et it dry under direct sunlight. You can also bring your phone to a technician. But, the thing is, once the phone gets wet, some functions would not properly work anymore because the parts will begin to rust.

Sony camera sea water damage and wet

Highly unlikely that it can be repaired, salt water caused corrosion and will short out electronic components when the battery is connected.
I suggest you put your money towards a new camera.

Here is a possible fix for a wet Cell Phone, PDA, Remote etc.

Right so your electronics got wet, now it won't work, do not despair, at least not yet. Here's a way of maybe getting it back. What you need to do is get as much H2O out as possible, swinging the unit, around ones head, or in a circle, & using centrifugal force to try to get any moisture out, then bury the while thing under at least an inch of DRY RICE, leave for a day or so in a nice warm place, and this may just fix it. BTW, always remove the batteries immediately, if it ever gets wet, whatever it is, and shake it violently, to immediately, get as much liquid out as is possible.
Another thing that also may work is Silica Gel, this is a commercial desiccant and pulls moisture out of things and absorbs it itself, it is extremely hygroscopic, meaning it attracts water.
Also any of those product that say they remove dampness & mildew from cupboard & wardrobes etc, that too will work in a pinch.

My screen is always white, and rarely does it work, I've had two samsung propels do this now, and I did get sand in both of them but not wet sand? what can i do to fix this?

If you are certain that sand has gone into the phone then the phone must be opened and the boards taken out and cleaned using a jet air spray. Brush out all the sand using a tooth brush , check and see if there is corosion if this was sea sand. If so use spirit to clean.
Also dry the board before you set it in and hope it works failing the board can be a suspect.

My camera stopped woking because it got wet how do i fix it


Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Std water or sea water? If sea water throw away.

Std water get into you hot water cupboard to help dry out or It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

N95 got wet with sea water.No 9 do the same as " play " button

depending on how long ago it got wet.... if it was recently, take it apart and put it in a bag of uncooked rice, the phone and battery apart. if you keep it there about three days, it should work fine.
