If it was submerged for only a few seconds, the damage may be minimal if the phone was promptly dried. Cell phones have a moisture sensing pad about 1-2 mm square located in the battery compartment to tell the vendor the phone has been wet. The pad turns pink on exposure to water. That says volumes about how common it is and and how sensitive cell phones are to the experience. That said, you may want to try these:

1) When you power it on, does it power up normally? The battery is probably fully discharged, so a full charge cycle is recommended.

2) If the display has blotches or fails to display at all, water may have damaged it. Not much hope in that case.

3) Do all the keys and buttons operate correctly? If not, it may be possible that some moisture is still trapped there. Careful disassembly and blow drying may help as well as a very careful polishing the contacts with a cotton swab or pencil eraser might remove any light corrosion. Always blow off the phone again before reassembly.

4) Many cellular services offer insurance for a nominal monthly fee. If you work or are around water a lot, it is cheap protection. So is the most secure case you can find. Next time.

I keep waiting for the vendors to offer a 'sport' or 'off-road' version of popular phones that have some nominal weatherproofing and will withstand a quick dunk. Sony used to make a personal electronics with a signature yellow-orange case that were so designed. I loved them, and their reliability.

Phone fell in water


If it's at the point where the screen isn't working properly, it's dead. If you have some kind of extended warranty, it may cover it, but there's no real way to bring it back from being water damaged, unfortunately.

Fell my xperia s in salt water


This happened to my phone once, I just took it apart (the bits I could, sim card, battery, cover etc) then dried it for quite some time with a hairdrier (on a cool setting) then left it over night apart. Put it back together in the morning and it worked. I'm guessing there was still water/ moisture inside of it to stop it working..

My nokia 5030c phone was fell in water


Thank you for writing in regard to your concern about your phone has fell under water.
Let me help you with this.
Normally, in this typr of scenario, your phone may not be fixed already, most especaially when the phone has been in the water too long, the hardwares as well as the other parts of the screen will be rusty by the time it will dry. It would be best if you brought the phone immediately to the nearest center to see if it can still be fixed.
Now, I have red some articles about this one. It says that when your phone fell off to the water, you immeditaely renoved the battery, housing or casing and other parts immediately and place all the parts inside the rice container full of rice of course. The phone should be merged deep inside the rice. The rationale for tis one is that, the rice willsip all the water particles of your phone making the phone dry. Please be reminded that you need to let it stay there for about 24 to 48 hours.
Also, the trick that I have provided is not credible. Hope this will help.
Lastly, if you think you will spend much repairing the phone which is hopeless, I would highly suggest you to buy a new one rather to spend much on repairing.

I have a nokia 1108 phone but it is not working because it fell down, i have given repaired to Nokia priority care but it is not repaired. the actual problem of the phone is {INSERT SIM} and {DISPLAY...


If Nokia says beyond repair it means that the main boarrd is faulty and the cost of replacement is more than the cost of the new model phone with advanced features. So please understand that youmust not waste any money to get this done but maybe some dealers might take an exchange for spares and trade a new phone.

NOKIA 6300 FELL IN WATER AND DEAD.CAN IT BE REPAIRED?


Hello,

What to do is this,

Unscrew the phone,
Get a Methylated spirit and a brush,
Bring out the board of the phone and use the methylated spirit to brush off remaining water on phone.
Keep under heat to dry off,
After board is dried, fix it back and screw back phone.

Am sure after doing this phone will work well.
But if phone still doesn't work ,that means water has damage some component inside the phone.
You will need to consult a phone technician for assistance.
Take care.

Hi!

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
