    phone has minor water damage, half of one water damage indicator turned pink (the one on the phone, but it is touching the battery as well). It works when it is plugged into the wall, but unplug it and it goes black. Even with the battery out of the phone it works and has a blank screen with the words 'Battery Required' Will a new battery fix it? Should I get a new phone? Any other fixes for this problem?

My phone got wet not soaked but wet and now when it is plugged in it says Charging halted


Hello, There is still water inside the phone that's why some part are still working and some not working yet.

What to do is this,

Unscrew the phone,
Get a Methylated spirit and a brush,
Bring out the board of the phone and use the methylated spirit to brush off remaining water on phone.
Keep under heat to dry off,
After board is dried, fix it back and screw back phone.

Am sure after doing this phone will work well.
But if phone still doesn't work ,that means water has damage some component inside the phone.
You will need to consult a phone technician for assistance.
Hope this help in solving the problem , Take care

Hi i have a htc hero on the 3uk network running 2.1 i got it a little wet yesterday and today it thinks the headphones are plugged in? i can now only make calls my plugging the head phones in ? i know its...


Turn OFF THE PHONE first then try dipping the tip of your headphone jack in rubbing alcohol not good whiskey (lol). insert it repeatedly into the hole. blow into the hole to help it dry faster. See if that works. Keep trying till it works or you get tired of trying. This should clean the contacts inside but won't help if the circuit board has been shorted.

Revived wet phone only works when plugged in


Yes if it only works on the charger than that means that the battery is fried due to the water damage if you replace the battery the new will hold a charge and it should work. cause the water damage probably is keeping the old battery from holding any kind of charge. Hope this works for you

You can try to have it checked through a service technician but there is no guarantee that it will still work, it depends on how much damage it has.

Getting an error that says car kit on phone


Mine said car kit and I kept reading it was because it got wet, and my phone didn't get wet. I noticed a little corrosion where I plug the phone in starting to form and I rubbed a little off and the car kit on the main screen went away.

When your phone gets wet.


If your phone ever gets wet, DO NOTHING until it drys. If you let it completely dry before trying to use it again, it should work just fine. it's when u turn the phone on when it's wet that ruins it.

This suggests that the IC of the phone is damaged beyond repair.
