Before rushing to the store and having them possibly charge you for damages, try putting it in a bowl of rice, and make sure none of the phone is showing, and leave it for a few days. it worked for me :)

The top of my nokia 5230 got dropped in water and now the screen is blank but it still switches on. what can i do to get the screen back again

Open up the phone and dry it in the sun, or do a blow-drying. Ensure that every trace of water is out of the phone. Then try switching it on. If the screen still appears blank, then the water must have severed the connection between the board and the screen. Open up the entire phone (screws and all ) and first with a soldering pin, melt off totally the solder initially joining the screen to the board, then re-solder it.
I hope this helps.

I dropped mt Nokia Nuron 5300 into water, it turns on an stays on but the touch screen dont work so I can enter my password to unlock it.?


You will need to take your mobile to a Nokia service center to get it serviced as the water may have damaged the touch-screen by short-circuiting it.

Thanks and have a nice day.
