Dropped phone in water for about 2 sec and pulled it apart right way and let it dry, can it be fixed


problem can be solved.When a phone drops into water the water stays inside the phone.When the water dries insid the board of the phone, it might bridge two IC together and cause demage or makes the phone to act in a strange way.

In order to remove the water from the phone the phone needs to be serviced for it to work properly.

Get a screw driver that can loosen the screws on the phone, unscrew and remove the board of the phone, get a methylated spirit and a brush to clean the board in other to remove the water inside the phone.

After brushing the board, leave it to dry for 10 minutes and fix it back into the phone and the phone will be back to live.

NOTE: if you can lose the phone , i would advice you take it to a mobile engineer to fix it for you in other to cause further damage to the phone.

Have a nice day.

I have a Samsung B2100... It has water under the screen....

Ok , but i don`t think it will recover, water is the worst thng for mobiles.

Firstly remove the battery cover and the battery, dry both with kitchen towel.

Now take all the parts to a warm room , leave for 24hrs then retry.
Fingers crossed for you!

Unable to turn the phone on the only thing that happens is that the screen lights up for 1 seconds

Cell phones get worn out and break from daily use. The Motorola Razr is no exception. While this phone may be durable against minor accidents, it can still stop working without warning. From a blank screen to water in the phone, there are a few simple methods you can use to try and fix your phone before you pay for costly repairs or resort to buying a new cell phonemag-glass_10x10.gif. Try these tricks to get your phone working again.
  1. tep 1 Check your warranty. If the phone is still under warranty, contact your cell phone provider to get it fixed for free.
  2. Step 2 Turn the phone off. Take the back cover off the phone. Remove the battery and reinsert it. Replace the cover and turn the phone on. Sometimes the phone will begin working again with this simple step.
  3. Step 3 Turn the phone off and back on if the phone will turn on but won't work or has a blank screen.
  4. Step 4 Buy a new battery if the phone won't stay charged. Check that your phone's charger isn't broken or damaged. Make sure the phone says "Charging" when the charger is plugged into the phone.
  5. Step 5 If the phone has been dropped in water, take off the back cover and remove the battery. Dry the phone with a paper towel and a hair dryer on the lowest heat setting. Stop every two to three minutes and let the phone cool down before starting again. Wait three days, then reassemble the phone and try to turn it on

My cell fell in to a water bawl

Hi there,

Please do not panic as this is a simple problem. Please take up your cell phone and unscrew it. Meanwhile, if you can't unscrew your cell phone then you'll need to visit a service personnel.

Basically, if you can do that then you'll need to take our the phone's board and use a brush stick soaked in spirit to clean it. Please make sure you use a soft brush to avoid scratching off the board. Please carry out this cleaning process with spirit for 15-20 minutes.

Use the brush on other parts of the phone that needs cleaning, after that please air the phone outdoor. Best if you've got it under the sun for 30-45 minutes.

Fix the cell back and i assure you that your cell would work fine.
