You need to try Silica Gel Packets to dry out your phone. There was a good article on associatedcontent.com that explains how to dry a wet cell phone, iPods, or any electronics.

You need to place your cell phone in a zip lock bag with Silica Gel Packets. Silica Gel will remove all the moisture from the phone and its components, something air drying will not do!

Just Google "Silica Gel Packets" and you will find several companies selling these products. There is also a web site called: http://www.SilicaGelPackets.com that has them.

Phone fell in water


If it's at the point where the screen isn't working properly, it's dead. If you have some kind of extended warranty, it may cover it, but there's no real way to bring it back from being water damaged, unfortunately.

Dropped my samsung eternity in water


You phone needs to be taken apart and dried out. You probably shorted the battery, it will need to be replaced. If it got really wet, boards start to corrode and phone may not be fixable. Every connection on phone needs to be taken apart and dried, hopefully your phone will work again. Sometimes I get them to work again, and sometimes I don't. Good Luck

My Samsung Eternity got wet - now the screen


Hi,

phone can be fixed.

The water that entered the phone has stayed in the phone for too long and it has affected the screen of the phone.

Even till now the water has not fully dried up in the phone and it might still get some other damages if not serviced to dry up the remaining water in it.

Unscrew the phone and use a methylated spirit and a brush to wash of the board of the phone.

After washing the board of the phone, put it under something to heat the board to dry faster and couple the phone back.

i will advice if you do not have the knowledge to fix up the phone, you can take it a mobile engineer to fix it for you in other to cause further damages to the phone.

Have a nice day.

Use genuine battery


keep your phone on the heater for a few days .I had the same problem with my e65 but worse.it was in the washing machine and i found the phone soaking wet.so straight away i got a dry towel and wiped it and left it for a few days.3 days later it was working fine.

so why don't you try it ,it worked for me so hopefully it works for you

My samsung impression dropped in water and touch screen broke


I also dropped my Samsung Impression in the toilet, I immediately took the phone took the protective case off, took the battery cover off, and took the battery and my SIM card out and towel dried it as best as I could. Then I sat it on the floor next to my fan and let it dry until I got to my grandparents a little while later and I put it in a bowl of rice, completely covered the phone and battery with rice and left it sit overnight in the rice and all of the next day, so far i've had it on about 20 minutes and have had no problems with it so far, another solution is to sit it in the sun, to further dry it out. Water damage will void warranties on your phone and battery and your provider will know instantly if the damage was water related when they take your battery cover off, there is a small square sticker that when dry and hasn't touched water should be white, but as soon as it comes into contact with water it turns red, there is also one of these stickers on the battery. My stickers were red and after sitting in the rice they look like they got lighter in color considerably, I don't know if that is really possible but appearance wise it looks that way. I hope this helps anyone who has had this problem. Good Luck!

Got my cell phone wet now it vibrates all the time but otherwise works fine...


bet it's irritating as hell, and kills battery life! can make no guarantee, but most modern electronics are very tolerant of good old isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol- 91%, if you can get it. remove battery cover, then battery pack and sim card- gently dab opening with paper towel- pour about 1/4 tsp. alcohol in the phone (it hopefully won,t get drunk!)- slosh it around a little, in the phone- let it drain-on a paper towel, and dry for a couple hours- replace sim and battery pack. that may solve the problem- shouldn't hurt the phone. the alcohol mixes with any excess water, and causes it to evaporate more quickly!
good luck!

My samsung eternity will not turn on. please help


First of all, DO NOT put the battery back in. Let it dry for AT LEAST 24 hours. Leaving it in a container full of moisture absorbing material (i.e. rice grains) should help in taking out the remaining water residue.

My phone got wet


I fixed a few "got wet" phones by doing the following:

> First, check phone's manual or search on internet to see if it has some type of fuse. If so, check this fuse for continuity. If fuse is OK, proceed to dry out phone using one of the methods below, or think of an arrangement that would be just as good.

> Take battery out, dry it with towel. Keep battery out of unit and away from heat.

> Using a gas oven that has a working pilot light (small single flame), you can dry out the rest of phone by placing a cookie sheet on oven's middle rack..place a small towel on cookie sheet...and put the phone (with the battery cover off) on towel.

> Making sure pilot light is on, leave phone in oven for at least 2 days (48 hours). This technique will dry out the phone without turning it into a lump of plastic.

> If need be, make sure no one turns the oven on during this time by taping the oven's temp knob so that it won't move easily. Also, having an explanation note taped to the main knob helps.

> What if I don't have a gas range? Use a food dehydrator with at least 6 trays, phone on top tray-well away from heating element. The dehydrator should be set at lowest temp. Still use 2 days as drying time.

> Do not use an electric oven unless it can be set for 120 degrees F and does not go much above that temp.

> Use of a thermometer with ANY drying method is recommended. Place thermometer right next to phone. If temp goes above 120 Deg F, adjust whatever you can to keep temp in check.

> If you have no other choice, an electric lamp with a 60 Watt light bulb will suffice.....just get a cardboard box to contain everything......and play with the arrangement for correct temp and most important, make sure light bulb is not near anything that might possibly catch fire.

> With any solution that uses heat to dry phone, make sure you check temperature several times during first day and a few times on the second day.

> If everything goes as it should, your phone will be dry...inside and out, ready to check!

> Replace battery and it's cover, hook up phone charger......and see what happens.

> If it still does not work, that would strongly indicate an internal short circuit....especially if phone was turned on when it got wet. Time either for a new phone, or have original phone fixed.
