Question about Motorola Mobility i580 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Dropped the i580 in a glass of water

I mean it was totally submerged, for like a 1/2 second. I took the
battery out of it and let it air dry on the deck. When I put the battery
back in it, it powers up then it says insert SIM.

Remove the battery immediately if not sooner. Or, you may have a total failure.

My phone was submerged in water for about 90 seconds. Will it still work and how long should I wait before trying it?


You should probably wait for a few days to ensure it's completely dry on the inside. I have heard other folks suggest that putting the phone in a bowl of white rice for a few days is a great way to dry it out. The rice will absorb the moisture.


Did the case cover the entire phone or just the sides and back like most?

Take out the battery and put the phone in some rice. It should help completely dry your phone out.

Water damage


I am sorry but whenever any modern day electronic equipment is exposed to water, especially if it was on. Then it will be a total loss. You see there is an instantaneous, chemical reaction, as soon as the water and the electronics mix. Current tracks, where it is NOT meant to be, and causes catastrophic damage, and no amount of "Drying out" will ever do anything, as the damage has already been done. You will have to get a new phone, it is as simple as that sorry.

I dropped my lg dare in the toilet. it was on and i couldn't take the battery out. that was last night and now i finally managed to take the battery out so it's out drying in the sun. what should i do for...


To get the *best* chance of having your phone (especially a touch screen) to work after being submerged in water, you need PATIENCE.

Generally, the phone doesnt die when it first goes in the water. It usually dies when the user tries to start the phone too soon, before it's dried out.

The fastest drying method i've seen is to get a small tupperware (sealable) container, and completely submerge the phone in white dry rice. Seal the container, separate the battery, take off the cover, and get as much exposure to the rice as you can.

The rice keeps the air dry inside the container, and will pull moisture out of the phone faster than air drying. Leave it there for at least 2 days. At least 2. Hope that helps!

PS - You will *probably* need a new battery, generally batteries are damaged by even a small amount of moisture. You might as well buy a new battery.

Dropped phone in water


SIM is probably bad or a little wet. but wait and let everything dry out and see if it works. Mine was soaked and the next morning worked fine. at least you probably won't have to buy a new phone.

Sidekick 3 dropped in a cup of water. Water got into screen.


Is the screen blank all the time?

If you look really hard can you see the items on the screen but they are really dark? If so the back light for the lcd may have burned out.

Take a look at the following site for instructions on disassembly.

http://www.gsfx.org/disassembly/index.htm

If you feel comfortable with it, you can easily replace your own.
A new lcd runs about 50 dollars shipped. If you buy it from ebay, they will usually come with instructions and the screwdriver you need. A T6 torx driver is the type needed.

Good job on drying it out and pulling the battery. Thats the best thing you can do when you get it wet!

Hi,

There is a good chance that the phone will work once dried...but make sure it is totally dry (try to absord all water ad give it a few days to dry out) before attempting to turn on. If you take it part and dry out the parts...even better.
