First remove the battery. If you have some small electronic tools such as torx bits, small screwdrivers, a thin plastic stick or a paring knife, some 90% isopropyl alcohol, a medium toothbrush, some cotton swabs etc. you can carefully take apart the unit and clean and dry everything. After letting it all dry out, put the phone back together. Put a fresh battery back in the handset and hope for the best! Please note that liquid damage will always kill any electronic item so even if it does come back on I would back up all of my data and start shopping for another phone just in case. Sorry I don't know of any better course of action.

The first thing which I hope you would have done by now is to take off the battery and let the water seeps off.
Now remove and keep aside while using a hair dryer carefully to dry the unit. Take care that the boards or the display is not heated up.
Keep aside and repeat with a gap of few hours until you are fully sure that there is no trace of moisture. Now try to reset and hope it works.

I have a Hoover top load 610 and it wont start wash cycle


These are a great little machine,I dont know why they have to go changing things.Anyway this sounds to me like the timer.It fills & the water cuts off so the inlet valve is ok.It drains so the pump is ok.It spins so the motor should be ok.Try it on other cycles like gentle or delicate & see if it agitates.I'm sure it will be the Timer.

Machine wont spin out items are full of water


Take the belt off and run the washer to see if the motor will turn without a load.
Newer style GE - long history of transmission/brake issues with these. Best course of action is explained at this link:

After getting home from work and taking the fone out my pocket the screen has gone balnk, the keyboard lights up but nothing appears on my screen. i have turned it on and off again but all i get is the...


Hi

The flex of your phone has shifted position. The flex is what connects the screen of your phone to the panel

Maybe while your phone was in your pocket you hit something and that caused the flex to shift

To solve this problem, get an expert to help you open your phone,remove and fix the flex back properly

That should solve the problem.

Great day!!

Forget my password on micro sd in nokia 6085


this depends on how password protected it is. i can advise connecting it to your computer and reformatting it as the first course of action. if this fails you need a brute force hacking program.
