Tip: The max point reward for answering a question is 15.
I had a friend who was a repair guy who often had calls from an office where somebody would tell him they had spilled tea or coffee or a soft drink on something that ceased to work. His first question was "did it have sugar in it?"
If the drink didn't have sugar it was worth trying to resurrect it but if the drink was sugared it would be more economic to write it off.
If something is just wet, I usually take off what covers I can to expose the innards and then dry what I can and then give it a couple of weeks...
If the unit turns out to be ruined perhaps your domestic insurance covers that sort of accident?
It seems bad. Usually problem with PCB. Ask your daughter if there was possibility to get even drop of water (rain, drink...) inside - in that case you should let the camera dry, but your chance is not big. I´d like I was wrong...
been through this one with you just the exact same.
I never dropped mine aswell. though what I descovered is that
samsung make their phones only to last for up to 6 months till they need 2 be repaired.
The thing that I think is up with your SGH-E900 is that you
must have over chagered it for to long and burned up the sensors
or you have been pressing the buttons too hard.
sorry that I couldn't be more of a help though if you still have
your phone under the 1 year warranty you can get it repaired, they might not accept it if you only have a couple of days left of your warranty because they won't get it back to you by the time your warranty has ran done.
The main point is to act quickly, not to give the chemicals time to react. Coffee is real bad, and if you just left it there for too long, then you're in trouble.
in any case of dropping into liquid follow these steps:
Remove the battery immediately; rinse the handset in distilled water. Why? Distilled water isn't ionised and has a high breakdown dielectric; ordinary tap water is ionised and conductive.
leave it in your airing cupboard for a week to dry (if there's any sign of damp anywhere on the phone, just put it back in the cupboard for another week). Reattach battery. If it doesn't appear to malfunction (bear in mind the battery may be flat), try putting the phone on the charger. If it appears to charge (and holds the charge), and still works, you've probably
got away with it.
If a phone is dropped into a soft or sweet drink drink rinse more thoroughly in distilled water before drying.
Carbonated, sugared drinks and hot, sweet coffee are the worst. You may be lucky if your phone survives.
If the liquid is greasy (e.g. coffee with cream, soup etc.) You can use a mix of iso-propyl alcohol and water. IT types use it to clean computers.
The water dissolves all the water soluble sugar etc. and the IPA dissolves the grease.
A word of advice for the future: leather phone cases (the ones with leather, not elastic, sides) are your friend. They can protect the phone from splashes and even brief immersion, with only the end connector significantly dampened.
