Water in the touchscreen

Some water got into the touchscreen. I wanted to set it up again but the touchscreen doesn't seem to be responsive any more. Is there any way to fix this?

The only thing I can think of is to remove the battery, then use a blowdryer on low heat to help evaporate any water still remaining in it before it causes any more damage. Once you think it's completely dry, pop the battery back (after drying it off) in and try to turn it on. (Note: Don't risk plugging it in for a charge for a while, as electricity and water don't usually mix.) If it turns on but the screen doesn't work, you can still recover any data on it, followed by the option of having the screen repaired or replace the PDA. If it doesn't turn on at all, pray you have a backup of the data.

Whirlpool dishwasher wont wash

if the bottom tub is filling with water but not washing the issues is with the wash motor, some of this model use a start capacitor that can fail, if it has a capacitor on the side of the motor it may have failed but are difficult to diagnose but are cheap to replace so worth trying, if this doesn't help or if it doesn't have a capacitor then the fault is with the wash motor.

Dropped my phone in water and now the touchscreen doesn't work at all

Hello there,
You will have to disassemble the phone, then try to dry it with a hand dryer. Do not place it too close to the phone so you will not damage any part inside the phone. Then reassemble the phone back together and the touch screen will work perfectly fine once again.
All the best. Elect_Comp

Water doesn't seems to get into the dishwasher

Is it no water or little water? You could have a clogged inlet valve and this could be the cause. Check your water source coming into the unit, clean the screen and try again. Look for kinked water supply line as this can cause the same problem.
If this is not the case, get back to me with what you find out.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

My touchscreen doesn't work,

Usually when touch screen doesn't work, it's a sign of water damage. It's also possible that you dropped it at some point and ruined the sensors inside. But it's PROBABLY water damage. What you can do is bring it to your phone carrier's closest store and ask them to check if your phone suffered water damage. They'll open the phone up and look. If it is water damage, you'll probably have to pay for a new one...If you're insured, it probably won't be that expensive.

The good news is, if you bring it there and it ISN'T water damage, you probably won't have to pay anything at all for them to replace it. Hope this helps!

Please rate my solution!
