Salt water, chlorinated water or just fresh water. If it was fresh water there maybe some water vapour still inside just remove your battery and put it in the oven with door open on about 100c for about 5-10 mins but make sure you keep an eye on it. All you want to do is get rid of the water not cook the chipboard or if you are paitent stick it in the sun battery out and back off for a couple of hours if it was the other 2 waters your phone is propably lost the chlorine and salt eat the chipboards and they tend to short out the fix will only work if you got the battery out after it got wet but it sounds like you never and the lights and whatnot is your phone shorting

Dropped my phone in water, blow dried it and when turned it on it worked fine but now the screen is all messed up, i can receive and make calls but i cant see the screen


The only solution that can solve it, open up the battery and then let the phone to dry in sun for long hours. Restart it afterwards.

Otherwise, you need to replace it.

Tip

What To Do if I Drop My Cell Phone in Water?


The small convenient size of cell phones unfortunately also makes these electronics accident-prone, especially when it comes to water. If you drop your cell phone in water it is often possible to salvage it. If you drop your cell phone in water, you may have only seconds to retrieve it, so you need to act fast even if it means retrieving it from the toilet!

The next thing to do if you drop your cell phone in water is to remove the battery immediately without even hesitating to turn off the power. Dry the batter with a towel and set aside to dry thoroughly. The battery itself may or may not work again, fortunately batteries can be replaced fairly inexpensively. Even if the battery does work, it is a good idea to get a new one.

After you have removed the battery, dry off the cell phone with an absorbent towel as best as you can. Use cotton swabs to soak up water in crevices and on any fragile, exposed circuits. It is also helpful to disassemble it if you can and let all the parts dry separately. Just be sure that you know how to put it back together. If it is a flip or sliding cell phone, leave it open.

If you drop your cell phone in a beverage or in salt water, rinse the phone off with fresh water once you have removed the battery. Once you drop the phone in water, the additional rinsing will not do further damage, however, minerals or other materials will.

If you drop your cell phone in liquid that isn’t pure water, you may want to try giving it an alcohol bath. The alcohol will displace minerals and microscopic substances as well as aiding in the evaporation of the fluid. If it is available, you should use an alcohol concentration of 95% rather than rubbing alcohol that usually contains only 70%.

Once your phone is clean, leave it in a warm dry area or near an air conditioner for three days before you attempt to replace the battery and turn it on. This is very important, because although you may think that you have thoroughly dried it, the slightest moisture can react with the battery and cause it to short circuit. If droped your cell phone in water, and want to save it, resist the temptation of turning it on to see if it is working until you have waited at least 72 hours.

The next thing to do if you drop your cell phone in water is to remove the battery immediately without even hesitating to turn off the power. This reduces the risk of a short circuit which would render your phone useless. Dry the batter with a towel and set aside to dry thoroughly. The battery itself may or may not work again, but fortunately batteries can be replaced fairly inexpensively. Even if the battery does work, it is a good idea to get a new one so as not to risk it leaking battery acid in the future.

Unless you have insurance for your cell phone which covers water damage, there is no point in sending it to the manufacture with the hope that they will replace it under warranty. If you drop your cell phone in water, the technicians will be able to tell immediately due to moisture sensitive stickers that are contained inside almost all cell phones. The best thing to do is to try the tips mentioned above and repair it yourself.

I dropped my phone in tea, the phone still works but you cannot see anything on the display screen. Is there something I can do to fix it. Sony Ericsson Walkman W350a.


Short answer: No. Long answer: Your phone has water damage. Warranty is void if your phone has water damage. Since you KNOW you've dropped it in tea, you should consider it a lost cause and move on. For others - if you do something similar (dropped in water): Immediately turn it off. Take the battery out, then proceed to completely dismantle the whole phone. I have in the past used kleenex paper to tuck into places I can't dismantle, to get the water out, but they usually say to dismantle it, then let it completely air dry. It may take a week. If it, after it's completely dry, still works, then maybe you got lucky, and maybe it'll start acting up in a while, problem by problem as the electronics corrode inside the phone. I have heard of phones surviving water damage with only minor problems, but it's rare.
