H the hair dryer may have done more harm than good, i know its a bit late now to tell you this but next time if it ever happens get the vac on it with the small attachment on then **** all the water out then leave it to dry for 12 hours then switch it on and it should work

another trick is to get a table lamp and place the phone on a surface then move the lamp so its 30cm away and leave the light on for 24 hours, then try your phone and it should work.

the hair dryer could have casued damage to the lcd screen as it can cause damage their, all you can do is try switching it on if it works it will be ok but make sure you try ringing as the speaker could be damaged and also the mic, give it a try their isnt nothing else you can do

good luck.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have loads of unrated posts

Can i jump out the lid switch on washing machine

It's not the best of ideas to jump the switch out because the machine will keep operating with the lid open. There were many terrible accidents with people reaching into a machine on spin cycle and twisting their arms off their bodies before that lid switch became a mandatory safety item. Children, and kats, are especially prone to accidents with a washing machine.

That having been said, there might be a few reasons you might wish to operate the machine with the lid open, like when washing pillows.. The easiest way to do that is to insert the end of a pocket comb onto the switch - it will press the switch down while the lid is open, and keep it "jumpered".

Keep kittise, kids and "civilians" away if you run it like that! It is dangerous as hell.

If the switch is problematic, and it is a top-loading machine, UNPLUG THE WASHING MACHINE, open the lid, reach into the machine and grasp the front of the opening. Give it a 1-2-3 and a firm snap upward, and the top of the entire machine will pop off, and give you access to the switch.

Is best to spend the twenty bucks or so for a new switch, especially now that you know how easy it is to access it. Please don't even think of jumpering it to save money: someday you might give the machine away or sell it, and the new owner will be at even greater risk of injury or death.

Don't think the hazards are overstated, please. Frigidaire used to have a top-loader that almost dried clothes with its spin-cycle of 2,500 RPM. When the lid was opened, it took about two seconds for it to brake to a dead stop, and many people were killed or maimed by reaching into the tub before it stopped. Arms snap off pretty easy with that kind of torque - be careful..

Opening the phone ON was a mistake!

Remove battery and sim and place it (open) in a bowl full of rise (uncooked of course).
Leave it there for 15 hours minimum.

Rise have the ability to absorb humidity.

After that, test it.

Other possibilities are to use below product (or similar ones):

The phone should careful be opened and let dry for several days. The battery should also be replaced to avoid accidents. after several days let's say 1 week that it was left to dry try putting on a new battery and turn on. it should work.

IPod shuffle got wet in the washing machine

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.
