Hi, thats the worse thing you could have done, your mate has not done you any favours by doing that the heat would have fried the circuits and the banging around wont do it no good either.

what you should have done is as soon as you got it out of the loo you should have got a vac on it with the small attatchment on it and you should have then sucked all the water out, then you should have placed it on a table with a desk top lamp above it about 30cm away and left it their for about 12 hours doing this would have dried it out and got it working.

all you can do now is leave it off with the battery out for 3 or 4 hours then try switching it on if it still dont work then the chances are the damage has been done and you need to get a new phone

sorry.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

My phone screen went blank after dropping in the toilet


You should have left it dry instead of turning it on, you probably have corrosion now, find a local place that works on phones to see if they'd work on it.

If you want to try to completely dry it, put it in rice for 24 hours minimum to draw out all moisture.

I dropped my phone in the toilet. I took out the battery and let it dry. When i turned it back on the screen just says downloading error v5.50. I dont know what this means or how to fix my phone


Hello my friend,if the phone`s board is oxidized now there is nothing you can do anymore.You should immediately open your mobile unplug everything and try to dry everything with a hairdressers gun and leave the battery and the Sim card out for some hours when you dropped it into the water.Also make sure that Sim card and battery is completely dry before install it again.The only thing you can try is to go to your manufacture support site and download the latest firmware and reinstall it.

Dropped razor in toilet


Sounds like it is done for, yes. I know a way to save electronics if they are dumped in water, but it requires to fill it with water replacing fluids. Putting it in pure alcohol right away (remove battery first) might save it, as ir should replace the water and then evaporate completey when you take it out. Some contacts have probably corroded in your phone, so unless you are (or know) a repairman of electronics you'll probably need a new phone. :-/
