If you do turn it on when wet then there is a high chance you will short the device
I would lay it out in some towels for a few days and let the water dry out. You can help it by blow drying every so often.
Wait at least 2 days before trying to power it up. IF it does power up, try to use the Palm Desktop software and get all the data out of the device before you actually start using it.

Sekonic Flashmate water damage

It may be permanently damaged. However you can try this - pack it in a bag of uncooked white rice and leave it there for a few days. Uncooked rice is hygroscopic - it absorbs moisture from the immediate surroundings.

My cell c902 fell in water now water to me is dry

If you open it completely and sit it in front of a heater or hair dryer it may work for a little while.. but be warned.. the connections on the inside probably will rust and corrode in the future.. then you will experience all sorts of problems!

Fell in salt water, dryed it for 3 days, is displaying "battery is required... powering off" when the battery is in. ALSO " Repair mode, please remove the battery to reboot your phone. Is it a write off?

the fact that it fell in salt water is proberly affecting it, try rincing it in pure clean water and then let it dry out, that might help. water shouldn't affect the phone, but the sault would.

My phone fell in a bath of water

if you can disassemble the unit and remove the PCB...great. Simply place the board in an oven for about an hour at 100deg C. Be careful of the LCD.....if this is wet through there will be no way to recover it. Now if you cannot disassemble it place the unit in a hot press for at least a week. You could also try drying it ou using a hair dryer.

Submerged in water

hi Inga,


Remove the battery for 2 days, Run hair dryer on it for aout 15 minutes too. keep it in a dry place for at least 2 days with no power from battery at all. If this doesn't work your probably not going to get it to work again with sending it to a repair shop for estimate of damages and repairs needed to recover.

Check out my website, we may be able to get it working again for a reasonable price.Just get the battery out  and keep it out for at leat 2 days. Hit it with a hair dryer again before you put the battery back in.
