We all know that when a mobile phone drops inside water, automatically it won’t turn on or may not work up to your expectation and forcing it to turn on will literally burn down some chips in the deice there by damaging the phone forever.

But today, I will be teaching you some simple steps in which you can use to recover your phone. When it drops in a liquid.

1ST METHOD (FOR MOBILE PHONES UNDER WARRANTY)


1. If a phone drops in any liquid, first thing you need to do is to remove it from the water as fast as you can. Do not attempt turning the device on.
2. Then turn off the phone immediately and pull out the battery only if it is a removable battery, but if the battery is inbuilt, just turn the device off and place it in the sun for 24hr – 48hrs.
3. After 48hrs, you can then put back the battery (if removable) and turn it on.

2ND METHOD (FOR MOBILE PHONES UNDER WARRANTY)


In case you are not satisfied with the first method, then you can try this second method.

1. Once your phone drops in any liquid, first thing you need to do is to remove it from the water as fast as you can.
Now turn off the phone immediately and pull out the battery only if it is a removable battery, but if the battery is inbuilt, just turn the device off. Do not attempt turning the device on.
2. Now (a funny but working part) dip the mobile device into a bag of uncooked rice, make sure you dip it completely.
3. Leave the mobile device in the uncooked bag of rice for 24 – 48hrs.

The rice will gently drain the liquid in the mobile device, after 48hrs you can put in your battery (if removable) and then turn the phone on.


3RD METHOD (THIS METHOD IS FOR THOSE WHOSE PHONES ARE NOT UNDER WARRANTY)


This method is meant for those who their mobile devices are not under warranty, please do not use this method if you are not a professional or your mobile device is still under warranty.

1. If a phone drops in any liquid, first thing you need to do is to remove it from the water as fast as you can.
Then turn off the phone immediately and pull out the battery only if it is a removable battery, but if the battery is inbuilt, just turn the device off. Do not attempt turning the device on.
2. Gently loose the screw with a screw driver and unplug the panel from the screen.
3. Place the screen on the sun (not direct contact).
4. Get a mentholated spirit and a toothbrush, scrub the board with the mentholated spirit and tooth brush carefully (You could use fuel incase of no mentholated spirit).
5. After scrubbing the board, place it on the sun for 30mins or 1hr.
6. Now couple your phones together allow it to cool down and you can then turn it on.

If none of these methods worked, I will advise you to take your mobile device to a phone specialist.
