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.

Ti 84 water damage

TI calculators have an annoying habit of dimming the screen when the batteries are changed so that it appears as if the calculator isn't turning on. Turn the calculator on (or at least press the ON key). Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Up-arrow key for a few seconds and see whether the screen becomes legible.

Water not retrieving from over flow bottle

Get your head gasket tested, with eider compressed air or so called a TK test. Subaru head gaskets can start leaking without having straight away big water losses. And get also your radiator cap checked/ tested .

It could be that thelittle ball that stops the water from leaking is broken, you will need to get anew one so for the time being put a little bowl of water in the nest, make sureyou change the water regular though as it will get bedding in it.

The camera will turn on/off But No image on the LCD

For this I would like to know if any water got into the camera.
If it did, then it more than likely has been shorted out, since you said you turned it on.
Good for parts if that is the case.
Any kind water in any camera spells doom.

If you ever have a digital camera which has any water exposure, then immediately remove the battery and if possible open the camera case by removing at least the back's screws, making a note where each goes. Let the camera dry out for a few days minimum.
Even after this, most digital cameras will not survive the water damage. The circuits are so small and delicate that any water will cause damage. Corrosion will do the most damage as a result of water causing chemical reactions with the solder and other elements. Any small damage to these tiny, delicate circuits will spell doom.

Water Damaged

ok there is one fix that i used with my canon sd700
again, it dropped it in the water and it stopped working
i took of the screen and changed the batterey wattage to 65w instead of 45w using a zxd breaker
then the "hotfix"
i pit it into a oven for 30 sec to get all compo. hot and then let it cool
i pressed the power button, and it worked!!
bad thing is the battery lasts about 5 or 6 hours only because of wattage change!
