Open it up with a tiny screw driver and get a hair dryer. toast it up a bit not too much or you will mess it up. dry it just a bit bout 10 mins on low and occasionally on medium. then put it back together. if it works tell me. Rate me plz.

How do I dry the phone out after I ran it through the washer?????


If it's windy outside, take apart as many parts as you can WITHOUT using any pressure on them to avoid breaking them, and place them carefully outside. Otherwise, just put it there without taking it apart.

Dropped my Nokia n95 in the grass and it stayed out there while it rained for three days. When I found it, I dried everything but the screen does not seem to come on. The phone is coming on and it will...


****... i know this is late but if your phone ever gets dropped in water, quickly turn the phone off, take the phone apart (battery, and sim card), and put it on a bed of rice, and pour a lil more rice on top of the phone as well. I did this and left it over night and my phone was fine!
I know this sounds retarded but it works! RICE DISSOLVES WATER!
GOOD LUCK

My phone was well charged, and i left it on the bathroom side for most of the day. I went to get it and it was fine then i went out side (into the rain) then got into the car. I went ot look at my phone...


I have seen many phones get wet.I have seen many phones left out to dry overnight no matter how wet(little-lots).Not once have I seen one come back on.Sorry,just being honest.I would rather tell you that than have you try stuff that won't work anyway.
Good luck! Greg

Razr V20 Camera Doesn't Open


There are a couple things that may be going on here:

1) Take it back to the carrier and see if they will replace it. Just tell them that the camera doesnt work. You dont need to volunteer that it was wet. They will be able to tell if they want to. If it was wet, your warranty is voided and they dont have to replace it.

2) rain has parts of dust and dirt in it. Drying the phone in the sun would have left that dirt behind and it could be on the connectors where the phone's main board meets the camera. The only fix for this would be to take the phone apart and try to clean the phone with rubbing alcohol QTip.

3) The battery, when it got wet sent a surge and short circuited the camera.

4) This is definitely a hardware issue and not a software issue. Here is a solution from another expert on this site: https://www.fixya.com/secure/support/t124873-camera_says_unable_open_camera,

If you are not comfortable taking the phone apart, then dont.

Phone got wet & works fine but says network error


Cell phones do not recover gracefully from getting wet internally. The electronics were not made to get wet.
You would be better served to get a new phone. Getting a cell phone wet is almost alway death to the electronics, even if the phone is dried out completely, The problems caused by the damp electronics will cause strange and intermittent problems.

Wet Phone - White Screen


take the phone to a service centre who will attempt to do what we call an ionic bath. this is a bath of electricity and pure alcohol.
they should then use i fibre glass pencil to clean trhe contacts properly. you may also need a replacement screen depending upon how badly the water damage is.
