REMOVE THE STICKER!!! :)

DId you let the phone dry out completely? You need to have done that first.

Next try to see if you get a light when charging.

- other than that you might be out of luck.

A hard to find water leak on 2005 chevy trailblazer 4.2. i think its the resivoir or a hose but not sure exactly, is there a common leak with this vehichle in that area?


Use a white paper towel and dip it on wet spot, if no color then it is water, probably from A/C accumulator which is normal for all vehicles with A/C, if Pink (dex-cool) or green its antifreeze which could indicate a problem. No towel?, taste it on end of your finger, sweet means coolant no taste means water. Do same thing for wet passenger floor area to determine fluid. If sweet or colored there is a coolant leak from the heater core , if water it would be from some other source unless heater housing broken and rani water leaking down from the heater fan cage.

Dipped my Canon 7D in the water, only a little bit wet. Removed card and big battery and lens and dried it. When I put it all back on there was no life at all. Any ideas Steve


Not sure what "dipped" means. Was it fully immersed? If so, water got into the electrical circuits. If you turned it on while still wet, you probably "fried" them. You should have buried the camera in a bowl of uncooked rice for a week first.

Check the water damage indicators on the phone and battery. They are white stickers, and they will turn red if they have gotten damp or wet. Be aware that some phones can get water damaged from condensation, or being in a moist environment like a bathroom.

If the damage indicators are clear, they cannot prove that it has damage and you should take it back and talk to someone else.

white background with detailed pink 'x's across the top is a dry indicator on some phones, such as LG ENV3. If the sticker gets wet the pink 'x's dissolve and the sticker becomes pink. Be careful some people at verizon or other cell phone companies think all indicator stickers are white....this is why they work at a cell phone store 5 years after high school, they don't understand continual education and reading literature.

Yellow light. Won't charge. Ugh.


a yellow light indicator usually means that the battery is charging incorrectly could be caused fromgetting wet the whiten sticker on your battery compartment if it is red then it got wet or being dropped the only solution to this problem is to get a new battery and it should work fine after that go to ebay to get a new one cheap hope this was helpful:)

I dropped my blackjack 2 smart phone and the battery popped out, then a sqaure sticker in the back of the phone turned a red color and now it wont turn on.


well for the sqaure sticker thats a moister indicator, when this is red this means that the phone as been in or around water. SO the phone prob got wet at some point and thats why the phone will not turn on die to corrosion ,

Moisture Indicator location question Samsung Gleam


Samsung's have 2 indicators now. One inside the battery compartment and one attached to the side of the battery.

The moisture indicator inside the battery compartment will turn pink if exposed to any moisture (including sweat, steam, etc.).

The moisture indicator attached to the battery will show up with pink/red + signs.

Hope this helps.

I am replacing mine right now so I can get a legitimate warranty problem handled.
