Don't turn it on for a couple days. There is a chance of shorting it out if you power on while it's still got moisture inside. I have done this and worked hard drying it and had it work. It certainly can happen. Good muck man.

I dropped my phone in tea an dryed it out with rice I can see the screen now but I can't dial


Hi Kacey.

The devil will be in the details. You likely are not fully dried out yet. Rice can be helpful for absorbing moisture, but it takes time. If the phone opens at all - remove SIM card, remove battery, etc. Pull as much out as you can. Wrap in a dry paper towel to keep dessicant away. Put in appropriate container with rice, dry baking soda, or such. Put in your oven at the lowest temp. there is often a 'keep warm' setting that is 150-170F. If there's nothing removable, turn the phone off before continuing. Put the wrapped phone-in-dessicant into the oven and leave it overnight. Heat accelerates evaporation.
In the morning, remove it carefully and let it cool to room temperature. Don't put it in the fridge or freezer, you'll just condense water back into the phone. Charge, if necessary, and try again.

If you're still having problems, back it up if you can, and try doing first a hard reset, and then a return-to-factory reset. This tends to be the mid-late advice for just about any smartphone rehab, so getting a full backup, if possible, is a really good idea here.

As a cheap future investment, go by a craft store and get a package of flower-drying dessicant. This is stuff specifically made to suck moisture out of other things. If you have a wet phone problem in the future, you can use that (just wrap the phone in a layer of paper towels first so you don't get dessicant grit into the ports.

Good Luck!

My iphone 4 drop in my dishwater with bleach will it dry out and work again


Dropping a switched on cell phone into bleached water will certainly damage the electronics in the cell phone.
You can remove the battery and dry it out, but most likely it is damaged beyond repair.

The hot water in our Aprilaire 440 is running constantly through the filter and down into the sump pump. It continues to run even when the furnace is off.


The automatic shutoff switch from the furnace to the humidifier has probably gone bad and will need to be replaced. However If the humidifier has a float valve in it like a toilet tank, it may be hung in the open position,which allows the water to continually run. Take the top of the humidifier and check the float valve's operation. It may simply need cleaning.

Cleaning internal humidifier


Try using vinegar and distilled water.
If this does not work try using a little bleach and water. Repeat till mildew is gone.
Rinse thoroughly Again & Again.
Everyday humidifiers should be cleaned.
After your last uses try blow drying it. Before you put it away. If it's dry it will not mold or mildew.
Mold & mildew will cause you to get very sick.
If the mildew does not go away replace your unit.

G1 in the toilet


Let it dry for a longer period. As, if the water has gone into the screen area, draining the water is a real issue. If it still doesnt respond, get it to a service station before the condition worsens.

This is the link to your manual:
http://www.crane-usa.com/manuals/HumidifierManual2008.pdf

CAUTION:
Always be sure that the appliance is unplugged and switched OFF before cleaning or attempting to store the item. NEVER PLUG OR UNPLUG UNIT WITH WET HANDS.
DO NOT leave water in water tank or water basin when unit is not in use as it may result in the build up of mineral deposits and bacteria that can inhibit the output efficiency of the humidifier.
PLEASE NOTE that if water remains in the water tank for more than a day or two, bacterial growth is possible.
ALWAYS use fresh cool water when using unit.
NOTE:
When removing water tank, water may accumulate under vapor lid and on the bottom of the water tank. It is recommended to have a dry cloth ready to dry wet surfaces.
DISINFECTING THE WATER TANK AND WATER BASIN
1. Fill water tank with 1 teaspoon of household bleach in 1 gallon of water. Let stand twenty minutes, shaking vigorously with two hands every few minutes, drain and rinse with clean water until the bleach smell is gone. Dry with a clean cloth or paper towel.

2. Wipe the water basin with a soft cloth dampened in the bleach and water solution. Rinse the water basin with cool water to remove any bleach smell. DO NOT IMMERSE WATER BASIN IN WATER.

3. Wipe all exteriors surfaces of the base with a soft, dry cloth. Do not immerse the base in water or use water to clean the base. An electric shock may result or the humidifier may be damaged.
NOTE: It is recommended to clean humidifier with water and bleach solution as stated above after using the humidifier the fourth time.

GENERAL MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Before any cleaning operation, switch the humidifier off and unplug it.
1. Always unplug the unit before cleaning.

2. The humidifier must be drained and cleaned before storing.

3. Once unplugged the exterior of the unit may be cleaned by wiping with a soft dry cloth. Caution: The ON/OFF switch must be thoroughly dry before unit is again plugged into power source.

4. There may be some lime deposits in the nebulizer, particular in areas with hard water. Overcome this drawback by cleaning the nebulizer with water and vinegar on a soft cloth regularly, as follows:

A. Dampen a cloth with vinegar and wipe the nebulizer gently, until the lime deposits disappear completely.

B. Rub down gently with a dry cloth and remove remains of humidity.

C. Do not rub the nebulizer with solid objects.

D. Do not clean with chemical products

5. When cleaning the water basin do not place the nebulizer directly under the water tap.

6. Never immerse the unit in water or let water enter the fan vent (see figure 3) or any other openings.

7. It is normal for water to be in the water basin. However water must not get inside the central body. If this should happen, take the humidifier to an authorized service center before using it again.

8. Clean the inside of the water tank at least once a week, as follows:

A. Fill the tank with clean water adding a few drops of bleach. Close the tank completely with its cap and shake by holding the tank with both hands. Do not hold by handle while shaking the tank.

B. Rinse thoroughly.
Water Level Sensor- The water level sensor is made of three key parts. When cleaning DO NOT MISPLACE these parts and MAKE SURE that you assemble these three parts correctly after cleaning and before operating humidifier. They are as follows:
Plastic Cap – this part has 4 flat tabs coming out from the bottom and is placed on top of a plastic pin.
Water Float - a small round part resembling a "life saver" candy located underneath the plastic cap.
Pin – plastic pin that secures water float and plastic cap.
To clean the water float unscrew the plastic cap from the pin. Remove the water float and clean by wiping the parts with a soft damp cloth. Replace the parts by first putting the water float onto the pin and re-screwing the plastic cap onto pin.



Good Luck.
