LG Env Dropped in water, little else known

Hello, I have been looking at buying a phone for cheap. One of the phones that crossed my eye was an LG Env that was supposedly dropped in water back in January. The only information that I have is that it was dropped in water, currently will not send or receive calls or messages, and sometimes it turns off when the charger is connected.

I don't know much of anything else, like if the battery was taken out, if it was dried, if anything is shorted, if it is still wet internally, etc. I know about the rice technique and to dry it out, but is that still effective after so much time has passed or if anything has already shorted? Is there any way to salvage this, or should I just pass over this offer? Thanks.

-----------------------------------------------

Here is the original offer. Thanks again.

This Green LG envy was dropped in the water, however everything is still functional on the phone. The only problem is the phone will not send or receive messages or calls. It can also turn off sometimes when the charger is connected. You get this phone with the charger and manual. I got this for christmas and used it for 3 weeks then dropped it in the water. It looks brand new, I can't find a scratch on it. You get this phone AS IS.

    kinda of an old post. but anyways, if you dry out the phones they sometimes seem to work. you can tell by pluging it into the charger. but usually the battery will stop working. I know batteries are sometimes cheep. but... since i dropped mine in the towlet. I will fix my battery instead of buying one. I will post the results.

    My phone worked after 1 hour of being in the oven under warm setting.

Ok, the oven for an hour at warm temp got it working, then had no battery but worked on charger with batter in. took battery apart and found the that ground from the battery was not connected to the ground (-) of the termial. I soldered a small jumper from the battery ground to the termial ground and battery was fully working. then had problems with phone shutting off all the time. today i lightly soldered all 4 pins of the battery and the 4 pins on the phone. then put battery back in and melted 2 corners of the plastic together to keep battery from moving around. this was the oppasit side from the battery eject button. phone is 100% working now with no problems. cost $0
good luck with yours!

Maybe a new battery? it should work because i have the same problem. and im thinking of doing that. but my front keys do not work only the end key and no numbers. but the inside from what i've seen is working just fine.

What do you do when you drop your lg env touch in the bathtub?


Remove its battery cover, battery, SIM card and memory card, give your device some good shakes, in order to try to expel as much water as you can, and leave everything resting for, say, one week. Then, shake it a little bit more, trying to see if there is no more water left there. Join everything together again, cross your fingers and turn your device on.
There is no assurance that it will work, but I really hope it comes back to life. Otherwise, you'll have to send it to LG to be serviced.
Cheers! Carlos

Lg env touch internal screen flickers white/colors after h20 expo


go ahead and take it apart... but be extra careful with the flex part,, dont use aclohol it may corrode some parts, try using lacquer flo, and dry it out with mild heat using hair blower or some sorts

maybe that would fix it, but if the lines you are saying doesnt go off, well you have no choice but to replace the lcd itself

The people I call can't hear me on my LG Envy


You can tell if your phone has gotten wet by taking out the battery. There's a little sticker both on the phone and on your battery that is white with little red crosses on it. If it's faded and red, you have water damage. I recently had the same problem though, without any water damage. They told me that it was not a common problem.. but it's happened to me twice, on two different Env's. Soo... sounds like a common problem to me.

Lg was dropped in coke.. any way fix?


MOST LIKELY YOU WILL GET MORE PROBLEMS WITH THIS PHONE IN THE FUTURE WHAT CAN HELP SOME IS IF YOU OPEN UP THE PHONE AND USE A TOOTHBRUSH TO CLEAN OFF THE CHARGING AREA FROM THE OUTSIDE FIRST THEN GO TO THE INSIDE, I WOULD RUB DOWN EVERY PART I COULD, IT MOST LIKELY WILL HELP FOR NOW BUT I WOULDNT TRUST THE PHONE, WATER DAMAGE CAUSES THE PHONE TO CORRODE SLOWLY.
