Question about LG enV VX9900 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

My phone in salt water.

Around November i went to the beach. I was in the water for about 30seconds and realized my phone was in my pocket. i ran back to shore and tried to turn it on(stupid thing to do) then i put it inside my bag and left it there till i went home. when i got home i went online to see how cqan i fix it. i tried that alchohol thing and dried it but it didnt work. then i left it out for about 2 days to dry with out the battery. when i tried to turn on my phone the LCD light wasnt working. then i left it one more day. the phone was ok till it turned off. sometimes it turns on but the automatically turns off. i even tried putting it infront of a fan overnight. still doesnt work. since i cant charge it i always use someone else battery. recently my phone is eating up the energy from the battery really fast. now i put in a fully charged battery in and it doesnt want to turn on. what should i do now?? We were swimming in the wate at the beach and didnt realize the tide was coming up. My phone was sitting there so i guess the water just kept hitting it (along with my iPod and camera). Nothing will turn on now and I have tried drying them out and everything.

Salt water corrosion will not be the problem. Salt water will cause short circuit in the components. Highly unlikely you can fix this player even if you clean it up.

Tip

If your cell phone gets into water...


Two differents situations can occur when you drop your cell phone in water: depends if it is salt water (beach) or fresh water (rain, etc). I use to repair cell phones for 6 years, and this is my best recommendation.
If the phone gets into fresh water, just remove the battery immediately, because the battery normally creates a short circuit inside the phone, then try without battery and if you can remove part of the housing, do it and put a small fan or a hair blower ( not too hot) aside the phone at least for 15 minutes continue, moving around constantly. This has to be done immediately, because the minerals in some types of water can cause bridges between the IC (integrated circuits), and cause malfunctions.
If the phone gets into salt water, and this include if you drop it into the toilet while urinating (remember, the urine if full in chemicals, most of them are salts), although it sounds crazy, just immediately remove the battery, and give a fresh water wash, I mean, try to wash all the salt from the phone, and then start doing the process to dry it as described before. 
Two tips more: It is probably that your battery will damage permanently, and nothing can be done. And, this not guarantee that the phone will work, because it depends on how long it was soaked. In a next opportunity, I can give you a little higher difficult level to do in order to completely recover your phone from future problems due to water damage.

Actually i went to a beach and i enjoyed much in water. After that i didnt remove the strap. i kept it like that only. Then after 2 days i tryed to remove it but it is so tightened. I couldnt open it. so...


It could be that when the salt water dried out and it left salt in the catch mechanism.

Try putting your watch in warm water and shaking it about. (The idea is to disolve the salt inside the catch, so use water as hot as you can stand). Be patient, it may take some minutes!

Good luck!

Yes the beach, two of camera worst enemies, water and sand. The camera should be taken apart to check for sand and water damage. Camera that are even exposed to air around salt water will develop problems.

Sometimes when electronics are dropped in water, you can still use the. Circut boards have a silicon coat over the circut boards for instances like this. Depending on how long it was in the water, you may be able to still use it. Let the phone dry out for about 24 hrs (take out battery and back cover) then try to replace the battery and start it back up. If it doesnt turn on the circuts were affected and it broken.

Sea water in my phone!


Hi, It may never work again BUT!!! Take the battery out, take the phone apart as much as possible and place the phone on a register vent with the fan switch set to ON or in front of a fan for about 3 or more days and try it again. water usually does not hurt electronics as long as there is no power to it and it is dry when you put power to it. If this even happens again, Get the battery out of it as soon as possible an DO NOT REPLACE IT OR TRY TO CHARGE IT until it is completely dry. Water and powered electronics do not get along in any way shape of form. Especially salt water. You will probably have to replace the phone. Your saved information may be on the sim card. Good Luck. kstfas

My phone in salt water.


To anyone who drops their phone in salt water. Get the battery out immediately. When you get home or sooner if you can put the phone in something that will allow fresh water to immerse it entirely. Keep water running in the container for about 3 days continually flushing the phone. Now take all of the water out and fill the container with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol. Let the phone dry out for at least 2-weeks before trying a fully charged battery in it and turn it on. Should work and you have just saved yourself buying a new one. Then don't leave it in your pocket when you go to the beach, drop it in a Ferry Salt Water Toilet, etc., where it it is immersed in salt water. If it is most cell phone providers will refuse to even look at it from their tech depts. A Radio Tech/Inspector in Canada.
