12 Simple Steps to Get My Cell Phone Working Again
- Get the cell phone out of the water first.
- Switch off the cell phone next.
- Remove the battery of your cell phone to shut it down immediately.Then place it aside on a paper towel and let it dry.
- Remove the sim card if your cell phone has one to prevent losing your contact numbers.Remove the memory card as well.Place them both on the paper towel to dry as well.
- Remove the casing to expose the interior and leave it out to dry.
- Use a vacuum cleaner or plain dry clean piece of cloth to remove excess moisture from within.
- Never use a blow dryer as it can force water into crevices,thereby worsening the problem.Otherwise keep the blow dryer at a distance from the open cell phone.
- Never ever stick a cell phone,wet or otherwise in a microwave to dry.
- Leave the separated cell phone parts in a bowl of uncooked rice.This will absorb any moisture present.If you do not have rice handy,use moisture absorbent silica gel.
- The next day,reassemble your cell phone and see if it works. It should work perfectly but if it doesn't,remove the battery and connect it to the power supply using the wall charger.If this works,it means that you need a new battery.
- If the above steps were of no use in getting your cell phone in order,you are advised to take it to your dealer.
- If the internal repairs did not get it working,simply tell yourself you need another latest model of cell phone.Good Luck!
