The plastic covers on cell phones are fairly tight, but water can enter the phone in a short period of time, perhaps only 20 seconds or less.If you feel comfortable doing this, try taking it apart. First, make sure that you have all of the right parts and know exactly where they go. Be sure to put everything back in its proper place once finished. As you're disassembling it, pat each individual part dry with a small towel and use the vacuum cleaner once more on the crevices (but be careful not to accidentally **** up any loose parts - keep them well to one side, or stretch a length of old pantyhose over the nozzle).

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If the phone was immersed in a bucket of water there is a possibility that the main board will be bad. The only solution ofr this kind of issue is to let it dry then try to turn it on if not then you need to bring it to a service center just make sure you remove the battery to avoid more damage.

Any device that is using a battery or electricity and get wet becomes faulty due to short circuit

Thanks

DO NOT SWITCH A WET PHONE ON .
If possible take the battery and SDCard / SIM Card out.
Place in a warm area such as an Airing cupboard laying ontop of a bowl of cooking Rice. Leave for about 2 days as the rice will draw out the water naturally.
Or put ontop of a dry towel ontop of a radiator . Do not let the phone sit directly on the radiator or it may ruin the plastic on the phone.

No... taking it apart .. unless you KNOW what you are doing is not smart.. take the battery out.. when the sun is out and there is NO chance of rain..sit it outside in a bowl of uncooked rice.. it will dry out.. you might have to clean the contact surfaces where the sim card goes.. With the battery OUT.. use a magnifying glass (this is a tiny area and a tedious undertaking) and a long sewing needle to lightly rub the contact surfaces to remove any corrosion.. make sure the contacts are clean and reinstall the sim card and battery,,,

ok, first remove the battery cover and battery and sim leave them in a warm room for 6hours or overnight.

Putting it back together and try it.if it still doesn`t work, try a battery change at your local dealer.

By the way a phone that hasn`t been charged for a while may not show any signs of working until maybe 30 mins.

Mobile phone TM 506 Sony Ericsson get wet


You have to leave it to dry in a warm - not hot - environment with everything taken out so the electronics have a chance to dry properly.

You leave it for around 24-48 hours then see if it works, if it doesn't then you need a new phone

My cell phone fell into water bucket for five minutes


DO NOT USE HEAT. You will damage the tiny components of your phone. 
The best thing to do is that the moment you get water in your phone, disassemble it. Remove the battery as soon as possible. this is very important. Then, open the casing and seperate whatever you can, like the memory card, the back cover, the keypad etc. Shake out any water that you can from the openings. When you shake it you will most probably get some water out. 
Now, use a dry cloth to dry your phone. Dry as much as you can.

Next, take a bowl and fill it with dry, uncooked rice. Yes, rice. :) Put your unassembled cellphone in this bowl. All of its parts should be in the rice. Now leave this overnight atleast. If possible, leave it for 2 days.
Then, assemble your phone again. It should work fine now. Atleast mine did. :)
Hope it works for you too.

Plus, as you have already done the first part and dried it, just leave it open under a fan etc overnight and it will work fine.

Phone in water


Don't turn it on. Take battery off. Put in a bowl or bag of dry white rice, Leave for 3 days. If you are lucky it will be ready to charge and like new after the rice pulls the moisture out.

Sometimes you can save them by not turning it on and putting it in the hot water cuboard for couple of days, but if you have tried turning it on already... well sorry mate its got liquid damage and thats the worst thing you can do to a phone . Best advice replace it.
