    So my phone got wet..

    It was raining really badly, and even though I had a jacket, my pants got soaked and so my phone was still in there and it got wet.
    Its a touchscreen, so at first, only a little part of it wasn't working(like only the down-side), and when I plugged it in to the charger, the next day it wouldn't react at all.

    Screen works fine, all buttons work fine, sound is fine, only thing that does not work is the touchscreen. I can touch w/e I want, it won't react.


    Its been since tuesday and yeah..
    Any advice?
    I put it in dry rice yesterday for like 10 hours, didn't do much either
    Need a custom image title? Check out my thread

    Take the outer casing off and simply leave it on a rag to dry.
    Sometimes it may take days for all the componenets to return to normal.

    Once dropped my old phone in the washing machine, and it got completely submerged.
    After 4-5 days it was fine.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    I'll trust that, but all the times it got wet before, it always had the screen somehow reacting
    I feel as if something has burned or smth

    Same thing happened to me during the summer when I was coming home from work. I didn't have an umbrella so I came home drenched & my phone's sound stopped working. I threw it in a plastic sandwich bag filled with rice for about 4-5 hours and it was fixed.

    get 99% isopropyl alcohol, open you phone, find any corrosion and scrub it until it is gone, wipe down, let dry. Your phone should be 100% functional again. Works for all water damaged products. 99% isopropyl alcohol is non-polar, therefore it does not effect electronics, and it is acidic enough to get rid of the corrosion. Hope it helps you out. Had much experience with this type of stuff.

    Scrub with a toothbrush.

    It's not a fucking game...

    First thing you should NOT do is trying to turn it on! Did that to my phone after being washed in the washing machine. Totally ruined it. Then do as aborted said
    My skype: PM me for my skype.
    Make sure to check with me first on the website before adding me on skype

    Make sure to use an OMM for all your trades for a safer trade
    Need an OMM? Just want to talk? VM/PM

    Well first off what type of phone is it?

    If it's an iPhone you are fucked. Unless you have the right tools to pull the back off and let it dry don't even bother trying to fix it. Take it to a local apple store or there will be a phone shop at a mall near by, either place will fix it or replace it.

    If it's any other type of phone just pull it apart completely and leave it in rice to dry, leave it for a good couple days and change the rice so it's still absorbent.

    There might just be some water still logged under the touchscreen that needs to get out.

    As previously said, take it apart, and let it dry in a rice.
