I accidentally dropped my phone in water and then the power button (red) wouldn't work. But then I took out the battery, plugged it in the charger, and then replaced the battery while it was still plugged in. It worked!

SOURCE: Pantech Matrix water damage T-T

honestly within the past two days I have gotten my matrix soaked...once in the shower and then my boyfriend threw it in the toilet when we were playing around. the first time I used aerosoft keyboard cleaner and sat in on the vents on top of my tv. The second time I wasn't at home so I filled a bag up with rice and silica bags and then turned it on the next day and it's working fine...I just get this random beep every now and then. And I can see moisture in the corner of the screen. My phone has been through hell. Just do what you think is best and go for it. Not in the freezer though...BIG NO NO

SOURCE: Replacement Screen for Pantech C810

try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

SOURCE: My pantech jest will not

I just started having this problem as well so you aren't alone. Maybe they are from a bad batch. I tested the battery with a multimeter and it has a good charge so it looks like the phone isn't taking in the power from the battery for some reason. I think the only solution is to have it sent in, unfortunately.

SOURCE: my pantech jest phone is

The push button contact pads inside the phone are either dirty, oxidized, or worn. If the phone is still under warranty, enforce it to have it fixed. If not, take it into your provider and see if they can assist you in fixing it, since they often know how to do this. If the unit is out of warranty, and the provider can't assist you, you can take it apart, and try to clean the button contacts with an electrical contact cleaner, or a qtip and alcohol, or a pencil eraser. If that doesn't help, the phone will have to be serviced. Contact Pantech for assistance:

Good luck, and hope this helps.

SOURCE: i have had 4 pantech

Make sure you're using the Pantech charger you got with your phone. I had this problem, got a new one, and realized I'd been using my old charger charger. Plugged it in with the wrong charger, it wouldn't work. Plugged it in with the Pantech charger, it started charging up and worked fine again.

Few drops of water got on my Pantech Slate phone..now keyboard does not respond..help!


you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

Phone wont turn on


You'll need to take it to a tech so they can clean the water damage and oxides that have accumulated inside. You answered the problem on your post by saying the phone has water damage.
