Dropped phone in water for about 2 sec and pulled it apart right way and let it dry, can it be fixed


Hi,

problem can be solved.When a phone drops into water the water stays inside the phone.When the water dries insid the board of the phone, it might bridge two IC together and cause demage or makes the phone to act in a strange way.

In order to remove the water from the phone the phone needs to be serviced for it to work properly.

Get a screw driver that can loosen the screws on the phone, unscrew and remove the board of the phone, get a methylated spirit and a brush to clean the board in other to remove the water inside the phone.

After brushing the board, leave it to dry for 10 minutes and fix it back into the phone and the phone will be back to live.

NOTE: if you can lose the phone , i would advice you take it to a mobile engineer to fix it for you in other to cause further damage to the phone.

Have a nice day.

My computer volume was suddenly stop working while i was watching movie, i checked all volume set ups but didn't work so please solve that problem


1. Was this a movie that came from a video store or was this movie on the hard drive?
2. How old is your PC and or your DVD optical drive?
3. This could be due to a bad burn ( the movie that is)
Some movies that are burned sometimes are interrupted and therefore will create a "halt" state on some DVD players and some PC DVD burners.
4. Also dirty DVD's will halt a movie in progress the laser is try to read the data through multiple finger prints or grease
5. Washing the DVD with dish washing liquid ( a drop or 2) and the rinsing and drying thoroughly usually renders the DVD playable again. Do not use hot water on the DVD disk it will warp the disk.

Mobile LG gone into water - need repair centre in Sydney City or West


When a phone drops into water, first thing to do is to remove the battery, loose the phone, and dry with heat. Allow phone to dry very well and allow it to cool before you couple the phone back. After all these, put it back on and don't be surprised to see your phone working well again.

Most at times when phone drops into water and battery is not removed, or phone is not dried immediately, the panel in the phone will begin to rust and it might be hard to fix.

I wish you the best of luck.

Installation ended prematurely because of an error >> office 2003


Firstly is this a copy or original and were you online during install. A copy i cant help with.

However, cd's have the problem of grease or dirty surfaces. and although the underside needs to be clean its the top that you should protect from damage as this is where the data is held. Try taking the cd to the sink and washing it with a drop of washing up liquid and drops of water. wash entire disk and swill with wram not hot tap water. when desoapped, drip dry and dabb onto a clean kitchen cloth. never rub towel onto disk surface. hold disk by finger in centre hole and on disk edges only. ensure entire disk is dry before insertion. Check cd rom drive head is free of hairs fluff etc.
