there are some locks in the cover. try to remove the cover with your nail. dont put in the battery untill you are sure that your phone is free of water and moisture contents.

    hello dear

    below is the proceedure i found some time ago and also performed successfully. you need two cards like credit cards and a screw driver. be carefull.

    1- Take front faceplate off by inserting card 1 between housing and silver key. As you pull up, take card 2 and slide it on the side of the phone prying the clips off.

    2- Unscrew these 6 screws at the edges with the T6 screwdriver and release the 4 clips surrounding the LCD screen.

    3- Slip the little black frame off of the LCD screen, and lift the screen. You should now see a screw. Removing this screw removes the back cover.

    4- That’s it! Put your new faceplate or housing in and figure out how to put things back by following the directions here in reverse order.

Wet cell phone-blank screen

Well it depends on the type of screen you have in the phone. Some have edges that can split open and lose the fluid that projects the picture so your best bet is to just replace the phones screen, if every thing else works fine

Maybe rzr v3m; black screen after dropping phonein water

you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

I had the same problem!! This might help: 1. Take out the battery, SIM card, and memory card (if applicable). 2. Let the phone sit in the sun for a couple of days. 3. Put the SIM card back in the phone and plug the phone charger into the phone. 4. When prompted, insert the battery into the phone 5. When battery is fully charged, remove the charger and depress the call button simultaneously.

I tired this and the phone is now working!!! Also, I do not seem to have lost any of the features!

Good Luck!!!
