LG (LG LP3900) slide phone

I had my phone on the window seal and it dropped into the toilet. I immediatly took it out and took the battery off and blow dried it. I put the battery back in the phone and it turns on but the buttons don't work. So I blow dried the buttons and Im letting it air dry. Is there anything else I can do?

Well, you an try placing the phone in a sealed container filled with a cup of rice for about 24 hours. No guarantees, just a last resort. This sometimes work.

I suggest you allow it a bit longer in the rice, atleast 3-5 hours to help dry all the moist on the phone, if the problem still persist after the hours, am afraid to tell you that the phone is damage and will need replacement.

Take care.

Got water damage and wont turn on

I dropped my phone in the toilet and surprisingly it still works. First I took the battery off and dried the phone and battery as much as I could. Then I took my blow dryer and a towel where I folded the towel in half and positioned the phone and the blow dryer under the towel and left it going for about an hour. The next day I took the phone and sat it in the sun until the inside moisture was gone. Then I charged it my phone has been working fine ever since and that was nearly two months ago.

I dropped my LG phone in a glass of water and now the screen says

When you obtained water damage to your phone you should have immediatly taken the battery out and put both battery and the phone in a bowl of rice and sealed it.

This would allow the rice to draw out the moisture from inside the phone. This would have to be done for at least 24-48 hours to work properly.

Even if you do it exactly like that its still not 100% certain to work.
The phone already sounds to have been damaged hence the random message on the screen.

Your only real option is to replace the phone as repairing a phone these days is not cost effective. Post back with any questions or comments for further assistance.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

I dropped my LG enV into a puddle of water.

Sounds like you will need a new battery. My env2 would only work if plugged into the wall charger after I dropped it in the toilet. I got a new battery and it works fine now!

I had the same problem!! This might help: 1. Take out the battery, SIM card, and memory card (if applicable). 2. Let the phone sit in the sun for a couple of days. 3. Put the SIM card back in the phone and plug the phone charger into the phone. 4. When prompted, insert the battery into the phone 5. When battery is fully charged, remove the charger and depress the call button simultaneously.

I tired this and the phone is now working!!! Also, I do not seem to have lost any of the features!

Good Luck!!!
