Hi, the phone has to be opened and cleaned properly. when a phone is liquid damaged, as time goes, will keep corroding. so u need to have the liquid cleaned with proper chemicals. just take it to your nearest service centre asap

Water spilled on my huawei android

Water and electronics don't mix.
Immediately, (too late for that), remove batteries.
Wipe off any excess liquid with absorbent paper or cloth.
I have heard that if you bury it in rice overnight, with the battery out and cover removed; that the rice will absorb moisture.
Next day put the battery back in and turn on.
However if there was damage done instantly, you will just have a dry android that doesn't work.

What can I do, my Kindle Fire got wet?

Pour a bag of rice into a mixing bowl. Now put the kindle down into the rice and leave it a day or two. The rice will absorb moisture from the Kindle, possibly allowing it to work again.

Spilled soda inside xbox360

If it's under warranty, send it back. If not, do the rice thing, but take it apart first. Make sure no power goes through it until you clean it. Take it apart and find a bowel big enough to put the insides into. Grab a bag of long grain, bleached white rice from your local grocery store, and make sure to cover all the components with the rice.Let it sit in the rice over night, about 8 hours. This technique also works with cell phones, and pda's if dropped in water. Good luck.

your screen have been affected with water. When you accidentally drop your phone in water, DO NOT turn the phone on yet instead put the phone in a bag of rice, the rice helps to seep water. Since you turned on the phone already, there is nothing to do but get the phone repaired or replaced.

After water damage, apps aren't working that I added to my iphone. Safari, text, camera, phone calls, etc all work. Any suggestions? It was only in water 1 second. Dried it off, used warm blow dryer and...

If its only user installed applications, just delete one free one (such as facebook, pandora, etc...) and redownload it. That updates the rest of the apps on the iphone and should put them all back in working condition. (If that fixes only the free application that deleted and redownloaded, do the same for the rest of the applications).
Otherwise if all else fails, restore the iphone through itunes and resync the app's to it.
Im amazed that you got the phone working again though. I spilled a can of pop on mine for like 2 seconds, and it was toast so congrats :p.

I drop my phone centro palm into water! I charge the phone and the red light turns on but my phone wont turn on at all. What can i do

Get a bowl of rice. Remove the battery from the phone. Leave the phone back open. Put phone and battery in the bowl of rice, cover and leave overnight.

The rice will hopefully soak up any water inside the phone and battery. If this doesn't work there may be permanent damage to the phone from the water and charging afterwords.
