No service after water damage

I set my razor in some water on the counter...oops! It actually appears to be working pretty normally after it dried out but now it says no service and reset the date and time. Is there anyway to fix it? It isn't a verizon problem but the phone. Help me please!

I dropped my phone yesterday in water. I took it out quickly and dried it off. It works perfectly fine now but the navigation keys' back light won't turn off. When my phone is off the lights are still on...


There is still some water, perhaps corrosion now, inside the phone.

The best thing to have done is to pull the battery off as soon as it happened, and take it to retailer so that they can get it dried out before damage occurred.

Since your phone is now damaged, your recourse likely will be to replace the phone using insurance / oops protection, or start carrying an extra battery.

My Samsung guru 100 mobile is giving continuous beeps.


you can try drying the unit out: carefully take the casing apart until the inside circuits are exposed and let it sit for 24 hours. you can also try using a hair drying on the lowest setting to help speed up the process. however, with water damage, it's pretty much hit or miss on whether it can be repaired outside of having the damaged receptors replaced.

Nokia N76 flashing screen


Hey my mom had this phone and she dropped it in a bucket of water and she experienced the same problem. I had an e8 on which i dropped coffee and had my phone randomly going to some applications and just flickering. Notice I said HAD.
Now if i have to say one thing it's....RUN TO THE SERVICE CENTRE. Don't sit and dry it it won't help. At the most it's going to delay the inevitable. Go to the Nokia service centre or any really good service centre and tell them your phone's experienced water/liquid damage. The only fortunate thing is that you have a nokia which is easier to fix than any other manufacturer. They'll have to open up your phone and then dry it and remove every last drop of water because your phone will rust from within if thats not done. The worst part here is that it'll take a week or two to happen. Just when you think you can't believe your phone actually made it through this and can't believe your luck your phone is going to have a major breakdown. So trust me after having two phones spoilt by water damage i wanna tell you to go as fast as you can. Don't delay it or pretty soon you're gonna find yourself online asking which phone is a good choice to buy.

Pantech Duo water damage. Can I take it apart, dry it out and repair it like I did my Razor cell phone? Bill


If it is still wet, do not try to power on your phone. Wait until it is fully dry then you can do what you like to your phone.

Water damaged Moto razor


I know you don't want to here this, so be kind with your rating, but the best solution is a new phone. The reason is this: no matter what you do, water is a conductor and the dried residue it leaves behind will also short things out. And water will get to places that you can't.

Sorry, hope that helped save you some time...

Phone does not work properly


Since cellphones have ways of indicating water damage (internally AND externally), warranty service is pretty much out of the question. You can TRY using a blowdryer (on LOW heat) to make sure the insides of the phone are dry, and put the battery back in to see if works. Incidently, the lithium-ion batteries in cellphones are potentially dangerous; anything that might short them out, like physical damage, water inside, could cause them to catch fire and burn like a flare! Also, you don't want to get them too hot, say over 140 degrees F-same result.
