You didn't let it dry out all the way so the liquid in there is acting like a conductor screwing everything up . The computer inside shut down to save itself. What you have to do is take out battery and sim card and then cover to expose insides. let air dry in well ventilated space for 24 hours and then start over. It should work but it might have been too late and in which case you need a new phone. If you ever get anything electronic wet, shut it down immediately take apart and let air dry and in some cases if the goo is too bad then you need to take an alcohol swab and clean off the components. Electronics are great but they are not invincible.

What can I do, my Kindle Fire got wet?


Pour a bag of rice into a mixing bowl. Now put the kindle down into the rice and leave it a day or two. The rice will absorb moisture from the Kindle, possibly allowing it to work again.

Do not power it up. If only water it will eventually dry out but beer is sticky and requires proper cleaning. Maybe take apart, rinse with water to remove residues and allow to dry thoroughly covered in rice to aid drying. However if it was on when the spill happened it may well be fried.

Soda was spilled on sharp el1179p


do not power on the device, it is crucial that you leave it to dry and as soon as possible put it in a bag of rice. The rice will absorb the moisture in the device. You should give it about two weeks (the longer the better) and you should have completely removed all battery components at this point if there are any. After a generous waiting period of two weeks or so, take it out of the rice and give it a try. I spilled a full 8 oz cup of hot coffee RIGHT into my laptop keyboard and it immediately shut off but I followed the above steps and I am using it right now just fine and it is a year later. Good luck!

My blackberry has water damage dried it out,powers up when you install battery then screen goes dark ,acts like keyboard isn't working ,how do i troubleshoot?


Do not turn on the phone again before taking out all trapped moisture. the phone and battery should be completely dried out. Take out the battery, sim card, etc. You will need to wrap each piece in newspaper, the phone and battery and then put in a rice container and wait at least 24 hrs. The newspaper and rice will eventually absorb the moisture. I hope this helps!

I recently jumped into a pool with my cell phone in my pocket (SAMSUNG Reality). I realized it 10 minues or so after. Dried the phone. A day later, the phone will turn on when connected to charger...


When phone gets wet NEVER try to turn it on. Take battery out right away shake water off and put both in bowl of rice for at least 24 hrs. If your not home or don't have rice right away take battery out and get some. We have a bowl of rice on the counter all summer long for those who jump in the pool with phone in their pocket. I have washed them dropped them in the toilet my son jumped in pool with his phone, put it rice for 24 hrs and we were up and running with the exception of the one in the pool, that one cost me new battery on Ebay ($4.95) but phone worked fine, didn't even lose contacts or pictures. But the key is to NOT try to turn it on after its been wet. Water and batteries don't mix.

Spilled water on BB Curve


After getting a phone wet, the best way to dry it out safely and quickly is to pull the battery and bury the phone in a bowl filled with (uncooked) rice for a day. The rice acts as a desiccant and remove any excess moisture.

If the phone still does not work correctly, it may be time to find a replacement.

I got my Palm Centro wet. I took the screws out


do not put your phone in ANY liquid, even rubbing alcohol! any liquid puts your phone at risk of corrosion in places you cannot see. even if it works fine now, that is no guarantee that there is not still small amounts of moisture inside that may still cause damage later. take your phone apart, put all the pieces of your phone in a ziploc bag of uncooked rice, and LEAVE IT IN THERE for at least 24 hours. having the battery in at all when there may be moisture inside puts your phone at risk for more damage. save yourself trouble later by leaving it alone in the rice for as long as you can. two days would be better.

I dropped my sidekick 2008 in the toilet


really the only thing to do in this case is to let it dry COMPLETELY before putting any power to it. if you let it dry completely now it may still work but if you tried it already and it failed i doubt it. try a new battery if it wont turn on. i dropped my nokia in the toilet and let it dry for 3 days then it worked; had a buddy spill his bottle of beer on my blackberry and after the defrost and over night it worked fine.... good luck
