I dropped my phone in water and it wont turn on...?

Yesterday i was on a dock where i fell into salt water for about 10 seconds with my phone in my back pocket. the whole bottom half of the phone was in the water but only for a little. i took it out of the water and the lock screen was working fine. i then put it away and biked home where it would not turn on. after a couple minutes it started turning on with the apple sign and the screen would go white with weird lines. i sucked out the water from the charger and headphone jack with my mouth and lots of saltwater came out which is when i continued to put it in a bag or rice. it has been in the rice for 12 hours and this morning i took it out but it still will not turn on or do anything. it is now back in the rice and idk what to do. i just got this phone.

With water damage, you have to decontaminate the logic board before doing anything else, otherwise there will be latent issues down the road.

Not every water-damaged phone is recoverable and depending on the kind of liquid (salty, dirty, filthy), sometimes the success rate is quite low. That said, IMHO, it's always worth a try otherwise we are just piling up the e-waste.

The rice myth kills too many phones...

The water is inside the phone, on the logic board and under the shields, even under the IC's. The rice is nowhere near where the water is. So while it “may’’ soak up some water vapour, the real problem is the mineral deposits that can cause short circuits or the corrosion that is taking place as the water evaporates. Leaving the power on the device accelerates the process. The longer you let a phone sit in rice, the more time you are giving corrosion to damage your logic board. The saltier or harder the water is, the more damage will occur. The water needs to be displaced, not evaporated. Here’s a great video that summarizes these issues.

On some phones, rice treatments appear to work. But those are phones that had minimal water ingress and not anywhere near a danger area on the logic board. They would have recovered regardless of the intervention.

Sorry about that, now on to helping you.

  • Open your phone and remove the logic board (follow this guide)
  • Inspect the logic board, especially around the connectors and look for corrosion.
  • Inspect both sides of the board. Unfortunately, most of the board is covered in shields. That's usually where the damage is occurring.
  • Put your board in a container with >90% isopropyl alcohol and let it sit for a while.
  • Use a soft brush, like a toothbrush and lightly brush away any corrosion you see.
  • Rinse in alcohol and repeat.
  • Let it air dry for a day.
  • Re-assemble and hope for the best.

You should also replace the battery if it has swollen. Resist the temptation to pop it to let the gas out. A compromised Li-ion battery is a fire hazard. If the device appears to power up but behaves erratically, then use a tool like 3uTools to flash the firmware as it may be corrupted.

A professional repair shop that does water damage repair may be able to recover your phone or the data because they have access to pro-level ultrasonic baths and specialized cleaners as well as the skills to troubleshoot your board. Many shops have a no fix/no fee policy so you don't have to spend money to find out if the phone is fixable or not.

Hi There,

Four days ago I dropped my Samsung J1 in the loo :( (Thank goodness the water was clean!) I shut it off, opened it up and dried the sim and all that I could with a tissue. My son put it in a bag of rice (for about 10 mins) which I later read doesn’t work. I gave it a short shot with a hair dryer and later found this also is not recommended as it pushes the water into the mechanism.

I put it in the sun all day. Turned it on and had it going for 3 seconds. Opened the case and removed the battery again to help it dry out.

Next day, turned it on - . After about 4 seconds it went black and off. Mmmmmm. Opened it up to help it dry some more. I was being very optamistic. Yet I still ordered a new phone . I love this phone so I ordered a J2 version from Dick Smith for AU$165. Covid times - so expected to be waiting for a week for delivery.

Day 4. Reassembled it again and bingo! It works! it has been going all day now -ie 8 hours and still going strong. I am sooo happy. Thanks samsung for making such a good phone

So my advice is be patient, keep it open and dry it out in a normal room after using a tissue. Simple!

Warm regards and good luck from Anne
