    I've heard of ways to take care of water damage to an extent like putting your phone in rice. But if that doesn't work I would consider calling awater damage in Salt Lake City service.

Htc 8s water damaged?


It is a water demage - with using to quickly you made it bad, I guess with pressing the screen you moved the water.

I would say ... give it another dry (smile)

Open the rear, take the batterie out ... mean let the mobile breath ... then leave it on a warm, but not hot place ... it has to stay on the side. We want that the water in the case vabours troughthrough the side buttos within the time.

Samsung mobile sgh e840 fell into water


remove all possible [parts, battery, back cover, sim card, memory card and other things you can open using a special screw driver, let it dry several days or use a hair dryer on cool settings until determined everything is dry.

As for the battery, let is dry under the hot sun before attempting to put it back in the phone.

after that make a simple power on test, if it works, you are in luck, otherwise consider your phone completely water damaged and will not be accepted for repair due to the red water damage mark indicator.

Hi,

Follow these procedure to save or revive your phone, remove Cell Phone from Water: Time is of the essence when it comes to saving a fixing a submerged cell phone, as soon as you see your phone in water, remove it quickly! Every second matters do this step quick.

Saving the Battery: In order to save the battery on your cell phone after it's been wet, quickly take the battery out of the phone as soon as you take it out of the water. Buy doing this you will ensure that minimal damage is done to your battery.

Drying the Phone Out: Quickly shake your cell phone to get all of the water out and reach for the paper towels. Press down on your cell phone to make sure all of the excess water has come out. If you have accessories such as cell phone covers, take them off promptly otherwise water will still be stuck in your phone.

Saving your Info: If your cell phone takes a SIM card, quickly remove it before the phone dries. While you may still loose some of your information, you won't lose it all if you take the SIM card out of your cell phone in time

.Removing Excess Moisture: To remove the unseen moisture in your cell phone you will need to cover it with either Desiccant gel packs or rice. Desiccant gel packs can sometimes be found when purchasing brand new shoes or clothes. Make sure your cell phone is completely covered with either one of these for up to 3 hours.

Vacuuming: Take your vacuum hose and place it up to 4 inches away from your cell phone with it on. While this won't remove all of the water, it will certainly eliminate the big spots of water damage.

I dropped my Blackberry in a puddle of water and its not working. What can I do?


Remove the battery, turn the unit on it's back and allow any water to work its way out. Let the unit sit for a day or so. If you can't wait that long, take a blow dryer to it and blow out any water. When the unit appears to be completly dry, insert the battery and see if it boots up. If it doesn't, it may not be completely dry yet.

The 7290 is a pretty versatile unit. I dropped mine in a lake twice on the same camping trip. Both times I immediately removed the battery, laid it out on a rock and let the sun dry it. It booted up fine both times.

Cheers!

Phone is dead after drop into water


Remove the battery and allow the unit to dry thourouhly. Take a hair dryer to it if need be. Once dry, reinsert the battery. The unit should boot up. Water doesn't tend to cause any lasting damage. Pop (soda) or wine or anything that is sugary will fry the unit though. Good-luck.

ok, first remove the battery cover and battery and sim leave them in a warm room for 6hours or overnight.

Putting it back together and try it.if it still doesn`t work, try a battery change at your local dealer.

By the way a phone that hasn`t been charged for a while may not show any signs of working until maybe 30 mins.

How do i fix my phone that i dropped in water without going to a shop?


Unfortunately, water and electronic devise don't mix.
You can try placing your phone in a plastic bag with uncooked white rice and let it sit for about a week.
then maybe it will dry out and you can try another battery.
Your battery is almost certainly toast.
Try a new battery and Pray it comes on.
If not, Buy a new phone, water damage is very hard to fix.

If this helps please leave me a vote

Dopped in sea water :-(


Water may have created short circuits and might have damaged both, the battery and the phone.

Since sea water contains salt and this is very damaging for all electronics devices, I would probabli advise you to completely clean the circuit boards etc with alcohol. You can probably set it from maplin or RS Components. They call it ethanol and is good for cleaning circuit boards as it evaporates quickly.

So after you cleaned it, leave it to dry and if nothing has been damaged then you may be a lucky person.

first thing when any electronic equipment is in water, we need to remove its power source like battery until its completely dry. to save it from more damage to circuit. You need to get it repaired @ HTC Service center.
