Does it have a SIM card? You may still have water in the SIM card. Open all the access doors, take out the SIM card (if you have one), battery and put all parts in a ziplock bag. Get some dessicant bags from your shoe boxes, cardboard pieces, saltine crackers and put them in the ziplock bag also and put on top of your microwave oven or in the window where it gets direct sunlight. This will help draw out all the moisture better than the hair dryer. I have done this many times on cell phones, gameboys, etc. and it works everytime.

Yesterday, I was texting my boyfriend... I was in the bath tub, but I was drying my hands off onto a towel... I didn't think much of it, because my phone has been dropped into the dogs water bowl by...


Try this :
Bring a hair dryer ,then remove your battery and sim card,then turn the hair dryer on (the hot air)
make the hair dryer focus on the phone from the battery side becuase there are some holes wich the
hot air can get inside the mobile and dry the mobile hard ware.
Make the hair dryer focus on the mobile for 5 minutes but be careful and make a distance between
the hair dryer and between the mobile to avoid damage the plastic mobile case becuase of hot air.

After five minutes turn the hair dryer off and wait until the mobile gets cold,then turn it on
This way is effective 50% to 90 %
If your mobile worked that means congratulations.
If it worked but not 100% that means there is improvement and keep drying it by the hair dryer as
i explained before,,,every dry for 5 minutes only.
But if it doesnt work at all ...that means your mobile needs a hardware repair and you have to send
it to a mobile repair store.

Cell phone went through washer


1st thing is DO NOT try to power up the phone. Remove the battery and SIM card (if equipped). Let the phone set up for a few days to dry out. You can you use a hair dryer too but I still recommend letting it air dry for a few days (at least 3). Note: You may start to notice the phone acting strange (i.e. power cycling, keys not responding etc.) after a few weeks or months. This will be due to corrosion building up on the inside. So if you do manage to get it to work, back up any information that you don't want to lose because it may not come back on the next time you shut it off.

Samsung SCH-u340 got wet, now screens wont work


first remove the battery & dry it fully with the hair drier ...
after that switch on the phone..
the firmware has got corrupted.....
then i think you can access the menus so just if you give the restore factory settings(reset) all your firmware problems will be solved ...

this solves your problem .. you can work with your phone just like the previous days how you were doing ...
