How to Dry a Wet Cell-Phone??

How to Dry a Wet Cell-Phone??

Step 1: Get it out of the water as soon as possible (Obviously! Duh!)

The fact is that cell phones are designed to handle small amounts of water. So, if the cell phone is just slightly wet, nothing much will happen to it. The problem comes when the cell phone falls into a pool of water completely and the water gets into the cell phones circuit board. Then the cell phone gets “short-circuited” and it goes off! So, the point is, if you can avoid the cell phone from getting too wet, avoid it!



Step 2: Dismantle your phone

Remove the battery AS FAST AS POSSIBLE! Do not even waste time thinking about it! Just do it! It is very likely that your phones circuits have survived. But, if they are still powered by the battery, they will short-circuit when the moisture reaches them! So you have to cut the power. You must remove the battery.

Remove the SIM card and the front panel and back panel and any other part of the phone that can be removed! Basically, as we said earlier, dismantle every piece of the phone that can be dismantled!



Step 3: Dry everything that you can manually

Use a tissue or a soft cloth to wipe every part of the phone you can wipe and remove all the water of the surface of all the pieces of the phone.



Step 4: Be patient and let the phone dry! (The hard part)
Now it is VERY important that you DO NOT try to put in the battery and switch on the phone! Let all the parts be dismantled and let the phone dry. This is a hard thing to do. You will have a constant temptation to put the battery back in “just to see” if the phone is okay. But, DO NOT do this! Leave the phone in pieces and let all the pieces dry.

Once of the best ways to dry your phone is to put your phone on the “heat vents” on the back of your computer of your TV!

Turns out, the amount of heat coming from the “heat vents” is just the perfect amount required to fix your phone! So place all the pieces of the phone carefully over the heat vents such that the wet insides of the phone are exposed to the heat.

Please Note: Heat other parts of the phone on the “heat vents”, but do not heat the phone’s battery! If you heat the battery, it is likely that the battery will leak and get spoilt.

How long should you leave it on the heat vents? For at least 2-3 days!



Step 5: Test your phone

After 3 days of patient waiting and letting your phone dry, now you could try to put in the battery and all other parts and test your phone. If it works, hurray! If it does not, switch it off quickly and let it dry for some more time. Give it a day or so…if you have the patients!

However:This way of saving your phone may not work if the phone got wet in a liquid containing salts, sugar or minerals etc.
