how to get water out of cell phone screen

Question Posted Saturday August 8 2009, 4:24 am

ok after i went swimming i wrapped my phone in the capris and then when i went to wash my capris my phone dropped in the washing machine when the machine was going so it got water damaged. i have it sitting a bowl of uncooked rice ( i took the battery out and its also in the rice) so my question is. if the rice trick doesn't work is there any way i can take apart my screen from the LG Voyager phone to clean out the water? or is there any trick where i can get the water out from under the screen.

I just did the same thing but in the dog bowl, like 5 minutes ago and I have the Chocolate Touch so its in under the screen so I put it in rice in a bag with everything apart as well, just thought I would let you know that.
Well good luck with your phone(:

I dropped my phone in a toilet and let it sit in a bag of rice out in the sun for 2 weeks. I didn't think it was gonna work cause after a week it still wouldn't turn on, but now, it works perfectly fine. You just gotta give it time to work.

I heard you can try oatmeal too. Give it a go. It can't do any harm.

Im not sure how to take apart a phone like that But if it is in your screen then there is absolutely no way to get it fixed.You may have to buy another phone.I did that to my SANTO KATANA 2 and i tipped my phone upside down with the screen facing down and all the water dripped from the phone luckily it saved my phone but i dropped mine on wet grass so that may be why mine was able to be saved.With what happened with yours though I really dont think you can save i and it'll be like 500 dollars to get it fixed.I would honestly suggest to buy another phone it saves time and money and not only that it save trouble too.Hope this helps.
