First the flash staying on its acctually the flashlight that is one of the features of this phone, so that is normal.

yes there is hope. there is always hope.. It has to dry completely, days with the battery removed. replace the battery and re-charge full 4 hours with the phone offf. Then cross your fingers and turn it on. You might have to reprogram it

Its a waterproof and shockproof camera. I tried taking pictures underwater for the first time. Today i took a couple pictures with the camera and later on, I turned on the camera but is a black screen I...


Well, your first problem is that the phone is not completly waterproof. (as in taking it for a swim) Many consumers have complained about this phone not actually being waterproof. I would get myself to the wireless store and complain pronto!!!!

I also have a Sony Ericsson K850I and dropped in the water.


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

Razr V3 water damage


Sounds dire. If you look inside the back of the phone, there should be a small spot that turns from white to pink when the phone gets wet. If that spot is bright pink, most repairers won't even bother trying to fix it. Best off buying another phone!

White screen blank


The picture you saw was actually the "Screen Capture" that was taken when you pressed the "Home + Power" button giving you a copy of what you had on the screen. A faster way to fix the white screen is to just hold the Home button + Power button + Volume Up. that would restore the iphone on its booting stage. The pineapple logo was the software used when it was unlocked before using pawninage tool. other than that i think you restored the iphone using the default firmware from itunes and thats why its locked back to its original state.

Wet Phone - White Screen


take the phone to a service centre who will attempt to do what we call an ionic bath. this is a bath of electricity and pure alcohol.
they should then use i fibre glass pencil to clean trhe contacts properly. you may also need a replacement screen depending upon how badly the water damage is.
