Hello everyone, I hope you’re all having a great day. Today, we’re going to talk about how to fix a water-damaged smartphone in this article. This article contains all the information you need to solve this issue quickly, including what to do and what not to do.
Before going to the solution of this problem i want to discuss about what not to do in this situation so that you will not do any mistakes here.
- Avoid charging your smartphone while it’s wet as this can also damage the motherboard. After a water damage, turn off the phone, take out the SIM card, and pat it dry.
- Never use a hair dryer to dry your smartphone. I’ve witnessed far too many people do this. It might be the worst choice you ever make, in my opinion. Your smartphone’s circuit may become completely covered in water due to the heated air from the hair dryer, which could lead to even more issues.
- Using rice to dry your smartphone is not a good idea because, although it can sock the water molecules, the process is very slow and may take up to 48 hours.
How to fix a Water damaged phone that won’t turn on
Now let’s get to the main topic: how to fix a non-turning on water-damaged smartphone.
Use silica gel to dry your smartphone
Simply fill a boul with silica gel, put your smartphone inside, and let it sit for about 30 minutes. Once it is completely dry, try turning it on.
Place it in Sunlight
This seems like the easiest and best solution to this problem. It will dry your smartphone much faster in the sun than it will using any other method. Yes, but keep in mind that strong sunlight can also destroy a smartphone. Look for a spot with some light sunlight. When it is totally dry, try turning on your smartphone after that.
Visit any service center
In the event of severe water damage, there is nothing we can do. Corrosion may be the cause of a motherboard issue. Any professional can resolve this by cleaning the motherboard with isopropyl alcohol. I therefore advise you to go to the service centre of the brand of your smartphone and complete your task there.
