This instructable will cover two ways that can help you repair a "wet" phone. As water damage varies from case to case, there is no guarantees that this will work in your case, but it is worth a try! It is important to know that these procedures will NOT void oven phone wet. However, if your phone has been water damaged, there is a large chance your warranty is already void! On newer phones, there is usually a sticker in the battery bay that is used to tell the manufacturer when a phone has been "water damaged" which allows the manufacturer to then cancel the warranty.

This sticker is usually round in shape, and starts off white when it is not wet. Although, I think my samsung aM started with brown and went to black. If neither of these methods work, and your sticker is still it's original color, try to have your phone serviced under warranty. Did you use this instructable in your classroom? Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson. When your phone got wet, it most likely got some moisture trapped inside it.

This moisture causes the phone to behave very funny, and possibly oven phone wet even power up. This is due to the conductivity of water It's ability to have electrical current pass through it. This moisture can bridge certain connections in your phone, causing these behaviors.

Even though your phone may behave fine at first, it is better to dry the phone before use anyways, as the water that remains inside can be moved around, and cause issues later. So what to remember, is that after exposing your phone to moisture, you want to nullify the moisture inside.

As we discussed in the last step, we want to make the water either dry up, or we can use a "Neutralizer" technique that allows it to become not as conductive, oven phone wet. The first thing we need to do is remove the battery and battery door and place them in a safe spot. This is because the phone can air out better without the battery, we don't want to damage the battery, and we also reduce the amount of live circuits that the water can short out.

I live in Arizona, and here in the sunny state of AZ, we have an abundance of swimming pools. My phone has gone for a swim many times in the past few weeks, and this method was tried and proved each time, oven phone wet.

Fortunately, here in Arizona, I can take off the battery and leave the phone in the sun, on a towel to prevent heat damage from surface contact, for about 20 minutes and it's good to go!

Your oven phone wet may vary depending on how hot the sun is, oven phone wet, but this method is my preferred. Pretty simple, remove the battery door and battery, place them inside, place a rag out in the sun and put the rest of the phone on that. Depending on how hot of a day it is, bring the phone inside for a bit if it ever gets hot to the touch overheating can damage LCD screens. The second method consists of freezing the water inside the phone.

This is by far my favorite method if your outside temperature does not go over 80 F. Again, we start by taking out the battery. Place the phone on two or three layers of paper towel to prevent frost damage. Leave it in the freezer for oven phone wet minutes and take it out to test it, if it still doesn't work, leave it out for about 5 to 10 minutes then try again, oven phone wet.

Electrical components are fairly tolerant to cold, however depending on your screen, it is best to play it safe and just leave it out of the freezer for a bit to keep from damaging it. I haven't researched LCD or Plasma screens, so if anyone knows what temperatures they hold up to, let us know!

That's cool, but why does it work? Freezing the phone works a little differently on a technical level than heating it up does. When the water molecules inside become Ice or frost, they are less conductive I believe due to the spacing of molecules? It is also of note, that some electronic components are 'surface mounted', which results in tiny space between the component and the circuit board it self.

This means that if water manages to get underneath the components and is then frozen, it can expand and cause further issues. However, in my opinion, the possibility of water getting under there with the phone only being submerged for a little while, is pretty slim. The following are methods that I have not verified myself, oven phone wet.

Next time my phone gets wet, I'll try some out! This method sounds likely, but I would recommend taking it out now and then to test it and let it cool! And don't forget to remove the battery, cover, and SIM card! I successfully baked my wet cell phone on for 40 minutes and the phone is now fixed. As the water evaporates into steam, oven phone wet, the dry rice can absorb it rather than have it re-condense elsewhere inside the phone.

This is potentially the best method I have heard of. It is also of note that craft shops sell silica as a flower drying agent. Well not exactly. Isopropyl alcohol rubbing alcohol is non-conductive. It is said that if you get some, put it oven phone wet a cup or a bucket, and swirl the phone around in there, it will rinse out the water and oven phone wet even clean some dust deposits!

This will prevent any further "bridging" of connections as it is oven phone wet, and alcohol evaporates super fast. A few words of caution: I would try this only with the bottom half of your phone if you have a flip-phone, as I am not sure how the screen will react.

Last but not least. This is the best method hands down, but it will sacrifice any sort of warranty you had. I do NOT recommend this method unless you are entirely comfortable with it. Now your phone hopefully functions as good as new! Let us all know how it worked or didn't and keep your information-lifeline away from swimming pools!
