My LG IS620 wont turn on because i dropped it in water what can i do to fix it?

Did you try removing the battery and wiping everying down in and out with rubbing alcohol and then let the phone sit in the rice for 24 hours?

Other than that, my only suggestion would be to open the phone apart and clean all the parts inside and make sure everything is dry.

Backlight won't come on after water damage.

The only thing you can do is to dry it out.Remove the battery panel and battery.
Wipe inside battery compartment and battery with kitchen towel, then move all pieces to a warm room(not on radiator) and leave for 24 hrs.
Then fix in battery and battery panel.Turn on ,that will be the best as you can get this phone. Fingers crossed for you.

Same problem. dropped in water. cannot find service.


The first thing you need to do is remove the battery and also the sim card from your phone.Next dry your phone.You can make the use of a towel to remove as much of the water as soon as possible, so you can save it from getting into the phone. Shake it out without dropping it, then use a towel.Next make the use of a vacuum cleaner for up to 20 minutes in each accessible area of the phone.Be careful not to hold the vacuum too close to the phone.Using the vacuum cleaner is the fastest method and can completely dry out your phone and get it working in thirty minutes. Leave the phone in a bowl or bag of rice overnight the rice would absorb any remaining moisture.

Now test your phone if you still face the issue then you will have to take your phone apart and clean the inside with a towel.If the phone is under warranty then do not do this because it will void the warranty.You will have to send this to repair if it is under warranty.

If you need any more help let me know.

Thank you.

Water damage LG Shine

This may sound crazy, but it has worked for every phone me or my friends have had water damage to.
Take the phone apart as far as you can go (like take off the silver plate backing and take out the battery, and simcard) and place it on a dry rag and put it in the oven. Then heat the oven to its lowest setting. My oven can go as low as 175 degrees, so what I did was to open the top a little bit to let the heat out. Believe it or not, this heat shouldn't ruin the phone, but only dry up the water that is blocking the circuits. Be very careful though. The ideal temperature is about 125 degrees. 
Considering water boils at 212 degrees, it SHOULD take more heat than than to actually damage your phone. Leave it in the oven, turned off, for 24 hours or longer. Give it some time... be patient. Then try turning it back on. It has worked for me and my friends, as of now we are 5/5.
Good luck.

My Phone got wet, and the screen is starting to get dimmer.

You're right in thinking it will cause you worse problems in the future. However if you take all the removable parts off, then give the phone a good 'shake dry' and try pushing down slightly on the screen to push out the water, then use an hair dryer on low heat to dry it, you might be lucky and save your phone from death.
Unfortunatly water and electricity (AC/DC) don't go well together.
Good luck.

I dropped my phone in the toliet.

Seems like your lcd and or flex cable might be gone. Also, u may have a short on the board, u probably tried to turn it on and it was still wet. Water damage can cleaned, and the parts are all replaceable. Check my profile as we may be able to help you.

Phone will not turn on

If you had gotten your phone wet, even having the phone sitting on your sink while you showered, or talked on it in the rain... any moisture at all can fry your phone if it is still wet when you power it on.

The internal components can get wet also without activating the water mark, example- water enters the phone through the keypad. In this case, Verizon will still honor the warranty as long as the water mark on the phone is not showing liquid damage.

If you water damage your phone, and it works fine, problems can arise months down the line from corrosion on the inside. If you can open the phone up, you can take some alcohol and clean off the corrosion in some cases.
