    Hi. So. This would be the second time I dropped my phone in a bucket of water. The first time I just continued to use it. It was fine n has been working for the last nine months. This time I contined to use it, n the same things happened as they did the first only, after using it for a while, the screens went black. Idont have any rice so I blow dried it a little n put it in some mac n cheese noodles. Is there any hope? Because I can't afford to replace it.

    Re: LG enV Touch Water Damage

    Contrary to common advice, it is not recommended that you use a hair dryer (not even on the "cold" mode) to dry out the phone. Using a hair dryer may force moisture further into the small components, deep inside the phone, as the air blows inward. And if it is too warm, it will likely melt them. If moisture is driven deeper inside, corrosion and oxidation may result when minerals from liquids are deposited on the circuitry. Using a hairdryer might be a temporary fix, but this will eventually cause component failure inside the phone. f you want to try and suck the liquid out of the inner parts of the phone, try using a vacuum cleaner. Remove all residual moisture by drawing it away with a vacuum cleaner held over the affected areas for up to 20 minutes although I'm afraid that this is too late now. Have a technician look at your phone to see if it's still repairable. Good luck!
