Ever felt that helplessness of dropping a phone in water or seeing your phone wet in rain?
Well, cell phone getting damaged by water is potentially destructive, but most of the time nothing can be done apart from few home remedies with the help of few common household items.
It’s okay if you drop your phone in water. Something is better than nothing. Try settling the matter rather than sitting numb. I would like to instruct you a few tips and tricks to get your phone dried out quickly so that it start working properly again.
1. Open up the phone
The moment your phone gets wet you are in no condition to reach out the mobile repairing experts and get it done. So, first of all, try dissecting the phone. Start with the phone’s back cover and head to the battery, memory card, and sim card as soon as possible. Take a soft towel and carefully blot each piece gently.
Once the water in the surface gets bloated immediately get a hair dryer and show its mouth near the phone so that the sophisticated parts dry sooner. Remember, never ever use a hair dryer at first, it will push the water droplets further inside the phone as a reason the recovery will be impossible.
2. Further Approach
Uncooked rice has a greater water absorbing capability. So after you have completed the above DIY trick, place your phone inside a bowl full of rice and then change its orientation every hour so that water gets absorbed from every possible side. Keep the phone inside over a night and the next morning wipe the rice dust in order to charge it.
But, before that make sure the charging port is free from water droplets. After charging the battery for an hour or two try switching it on. If you are quick enough in making efforts in order to dry your phone chances are in favor that your phone will work normally. But, if you have delayed in the process then it might not work because by that time water would have reached and damaged the sophisticated parts. In that case, you have to reach out the customer care.
The repair may be cost-effective, try resolving the issue by replacing the cell phone if the price doesn’t work in your favor.
