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.

Hi, Ihave a C:21:00 symbol in my screen...and another one look like a water drop....I can't put my cassette inside the machine...what can I do ???? Thank's Isabelle


The water drop is a condensation warning- the camera has sensed damp in the works. Damp will cause the tape to stick and get tangled in the transport mechanism, so you need to dry the camera (and tapes) out thoroughly before proceeding. Leave them in a warmish dry place for a day or so- longer if needed.

Phone is dead after drop into water


Remove the battery and allow the unit to dry thourouhly. Take a hair dryer to it if need be. Once dry, reinsert the battery. The unit should boot up. Water doesn't tend to cause any lasting damage. Pop (soda) or wine or anything that is sugary will fry the unit though. Good-luck.

Mobile LG gone into water - need repair centre in Sydney City or West


When a phone drops into water, first thing to do is to remove the battery, loose the phone, and dry with heat. Allow phone to dry very well and allow it to cool before you couple the phone back. After all these, put it back on and don't be surprised to see your phone working well again.

Most at times when phone drops into water and battery is not removed, or phone is not dried immediately, the panel in the phone will begin to rust and it might be hard to fix.

I wish you the best of luck.
