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.

How can repair a wet mobile cell?

Samsung Galaxy Smartphone: Water damaged phone: How fix:

Hello.. the procedure:

Electricity and water do not mix. If continue to use water short circuits chips inside making your phone's motherboard burn out = phone as a paperweight

1. Do not try to use your phone. Power it off. Immediately, if able to: remove the battery back door and take out the battery.

If you turned the phone on after getting wet, you probably shorted something out.. If you never turned it off and kept using it thinking it is fine.. but time passes and the phone continues to act up.. you are probably killing your phone as the water continues to damage the motherboard. Once you turn off the phone, consider the phone dead, because trying to turn it back on with spark energy to the motherboard frying it in the process. (I've seen that happen several times)

(if for example, you have a s6 family/note 5 whereas the phone where the battery does not come out without breaking the glue seal to take it out, leave it in. just power off the device.)

2. dry it off with a towel, shake out any loose water droplets inside the phone

3. use a hair dryer on low setting to try to dry out the phone... no hair dryer? set your phone out in the sun, but don't bake it.. (what you are trying to do dry up any water that might be inside)

4. get a empty container that's bigger/taller than your phone by at least 1/2 inch on either side, fill it with rice and submerge your battery-less and battery backdoor-less phone for 24-72 hours.

(the rice will dry out your phone. this takes time. water is usually trapped underneath the chips on the motherboard where you would not be able to get to dry off unless you un-solder the chips)

5. If you phone doesn't turn on after that.. it means that the water has either fried the chips on your phone and/or corrosion from water that is undried in the phone has effectively made it useless. You can't send it back to Samsung to fix, because it is your fault. Water damaged phones will cost anywhere up to $300 to fix. Consider all data on the phone lost. Time to buy a new phone.

If the phone turns on but something doesn't work, it means you shorted that part of the phone out.. Don't bother sending it to Samsung to fix because it was your fault. Take it to your local cell phone repair shop to fix. Ask them for a quote or at least get a diagnostic inspection to see what might be fixable. Explain it was water damaged upfront. Assess the damage costs to decide if you want to repair it or not

If the screen is black and you get a constant flashing red light that won't stop.. that indicates to service technician that your device is water damaged. Don't try to trick servicing shops about fault, there are water indicators in your phone that tells them it was your fault. Best to man up and tell the truth before you waste your time and money.

Water damage

water damage generally = dead or unreliable phone. If you did all the stuff ... removing the battery and rice for a couple days ... you will probably have to replace your device.

What to do is this,

Unscrew the phone,
Get a Methylated spirit and a brush,
Bring out the board of the phone and use the methylated spirit to brush off remaining water on phone.
Keep under heat to dry off,
After board is dried, fix it back and screw back phone.

Am sure after doing this phone will work well.
But if phone still doesn't work ,that means water has damage some component inside the phone.
You will need to consult a phone technician for assistance.
Take care.

Cell pjone water damage

Turn your phone off for at least a day. Dry off your phone if you haven't already. Take out the battery, dry out the inside of the phone. If you have a sim card, take that out and leave to dry. Leave the battery out of the phone for a day as well. Put it back together after a day and try to power it on. If it doesn't come on, try plugging it in without the battery in. If it works that way, you simply need a new battery.

If this doesn't work you're probably going to have to get a new phone. Your cell phone provider will be able to tell if it's water damaged, so check with them to see if they replace water damaged phones.
