Hi

You should use methylated spirit and brush to clean the panel and dry the panel in the sun or close to electric bulb.

Good luck.

MOTOROLA ADVENTURE V750 POWERS ON TO VERIZON LOGO FOR FEW SECONDS THEN GOES TO BLUE SCREEN....WAS RECENTLY DROPPED IN WATER AND SHOULD HAD PLENTY TIME TO DRY OUT AND HAVE EVEN TRIED PUTTIN IN RICE TO MAYBE...


Hi its a good indication that you still have water inside the phone.
to get rid of all the water in the circuts, you will need:

1 get a loner phone ( bcause the process i will show you here takes 10 days minimum to work).

you need a zip container with a lit, some desiccant bags 2 or 3 will do just fine.
salt can also be used as desiccant, but it should not touch the phone, use a papaer envelop or something

2 Blow dry the phone
3 put it in the container without the battery
4 put the desiccant bags inside
5 close it hermetically,
then go hide it in some dark spot for 10 days and be patient

Note that you might need a new battery.
Hope this helps

My phone fell into the toilet and I need to fix it


First thing is to ALWAYS remove the battery to prevent electrolysis.

Clean with de-ionized water (distilled) with battery removed.

LET dry thoroughly for a day or more before putting battery back in for trial.

Do not heat the unit to dry more than placing over a furnace register for slow gentle drying.

My motorola rival A455 cell phone got droped in water


try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

Phone fell in the toilet and need method to dry.


Remove the battery, do NOT try and power it on. Get a bowl and pour some rice into it, place the phone in it and let dry for a few days.

If you try and power it on while there is ANY water left inside it, you can short it out and ruin it permanently. This is the best known method, but is not guaranteed to work.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Motorola - E6 Smart Phone fell in water for 2-3 seconds.


First of all, do not turn it on. Take out the battery, and completely dry the phone before trying to use again.
Here is the procedure to take out all moisture trapped in the phone: Dry the phone, battery, any accessory, etc. with cloth and wrap each piece, phone and accessories, in newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped phone in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your phone because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the phone. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs.

first thing you should have done is remove the battery immediately. The battery with water will fry the phone. The phone needs to dry out. I have heard several people have good luck by putting the phone in a bag of rice for 3 days. Rice will remove the moisture. Give it a try and good luck!

Nokia N70 fell in the toilet


To help drying out the phone, I suggest taking the phone apart. (i.e. battery, sim card, back cover, etc) putting it all into a container of rice, Use a container that you can put a lid on. Let the phone set in the rice for a couple of days. The uncooked rice will draw the moisture out of the equipment. This will dry it out, but whether or not it shorted the unit out is your next step.
