Try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

Recover data with pc nokia e7 water damaged and won't turn on


Well, friend! I am afriad that you can not recover data from the phone when it turns off. if your phone suffer from a water damage, you can try to put the phone into popcorn with a plastic pocket, and wait for the phone dry totally, then you can try to turn on the phone.

Might have water damage but power is off and won't turn on


Can u change the battery and see if that was the issue? If so and its not the battery you could open the watch on visibly check for black/scourched marks that would indicate that (probably the water) something has shorted said part(s) with the marks. If you see nothing strange then its time to use a meter to test parts.

DSC-T70 camera got wet and now won't power on. Battery seems to charge fine.


I'm guessing you tried to turn it on way too soon and fried the circuits. A camera with fresh water damage should be buried in a bowl of dry rice for a week before even attempting to turn it on. Salt water damage?....chances of a complete recovery are slim to none.

Hi. Since you're in UMD Autoload mode, you need to configure that in the PSP Settings. To do this, turn off your PSP and remove your UMD. Now, turn it back on and it won't autoload your UMD since it wasn't there anymore.
Now, go to "Settings" and scroll down to "System Settings" and press X. Scroll down again the selection until you see "UMD Auto-Start" and press X. At the right side will appear the options "ON" and "OFF". Select "OFF" and press O button several times to go back to main screen.
Insert your UMD. Now, try playing games from Memory Stick. You may have to turn off your PSP and turn it on again to finally play homebrew...
I hope this helps...

When water spills on electronic products it causes corrosion to the circuit board and to the components in different circuits, unless you went inside the unit immediately after the water went into the unit and cleaned the effected areas some components and circuit traces have been already damaged and the longer the water sits inside the more damage it can do. Circuit traces may need cleanning and some capacitors or other components may need replacing because water is conductive and can create short circuits to diodes + trasistors, IC chips.

My touchscreen doesn't work,


Usually when touch screen doesn't work, it's a sign of water damage. It's also possible that you dropped it at some point and ruined the sensors inside. But it's PROBABLY water damage. What you can do is bring it to your phone carrier's closest store and ask them to check if your phone suffered water damage. They'll open the phone up and look. If it is water damage, you'll probably have to pay for a new one...If you're insured, it probably won't be that expensive.

The good news is, if you bring it there and it ISN'T water damage, you probably won't have to pay anything at all for them to replace it. Hope this helps!

Drove car thru water. Car died instantaly. water was knee deep. Pushed car out of water. will not turn over now.???


when you say it won`t turn over do you mean it tries to turn over with the starter or it won`t start.if you mean it won`t turn over then when it dries out a bit(water has drained from electrical components)try it again.if it still wont then its possible it may have sucked up water into the cylinder.pull the plugs and try to turn the motor over.if it does then this is the problem.if you mean it won`t start then let it dry still for water in a component may cause electrical issues when wet.just suggestions.
