Try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

I dont get picture text with my helio cause my provider is cricketwhat do i do


An Ocean on Cricket cant be flashed for picture text because Cricket uses MMS and there is no MMS Client in the Binary of the firmware on Helio phones because Helio phones use a different server-type to transmit their data. They use a MMSC/PictureMail based client. However a good flasher/tech can flash Internet/WAP on that Pantech Ocean.

Maybe your phone has water damage. You could try spraying the inside with wood cleaner. Or take it to the shop.

Whats up hope you help me


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me'. Unfortunately the Helio Ocean is not available in my country and neither do Helio nor Cricket have a service here in the Philippines.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Helio Ocean..blank screen


I managed to fix mine! It takes some doing and is probably not for the faint hearted. You have to disassemble the Ocean from the battery side, removing the qwerty keyboard, to gain access to the slider assembly.

Disassemble the slider (pay attention to the spring!) and clean all contacts and make sure all of the flex cables are seated completely. Mine was working OK the qwerty way, but was blank and/or garbled the long way. Now it works great!
