water damage Samsung galaxy note 3
Please help I drop my Samsung galaxy note 3 in the toilet I take the battery out and put it in rice....it turns on but the screen is black? Please help!?
phylicia sifuentes, safe the rice for some cooking. It does no good in electronic repair. It is a big myth and is equivalent to doing absolutely nothing. Remove the battery and do not try to charge or to use your phone. It is time to disassemble your Note. Use this teardown as an idea of what is involved. Once you have it open, clean everything with high grade (90%+) isopropyl alcohol and a soft brush to clean every part of your phone. Clean the connectors on the board as well as on the cables. Once you have it properly cleaned, replace the battery then re-evaluate. Hope this helps, good luck.
without more information its hard to say, but heres some general suggestions, pull the battery, there is likely still water or corrosion inside witch may cause more damage with power going through the circuit, if your conformable with it i suggest taking the phone apart and cleaning the board with isopropyl alcohol.
