    Whenever the phone was dropped into the water, the thing should be immediately done is discarding or removing the battery, so that you can avoid short-circuits that are to be occured. After that, take a zip bag and fill it with rice. After that, leave your phone in that rice bag. So that, your phone sink in the rice. Let it be like that upto nearly twenty-four hours and now try using the mobile keeping battery in it. The water will be absorbed by the rice. So your phone will be wet free after applying this technique. Even though you have any problems, take your phone to service centre and show there. Almost, the issues will be minor. So no problem. But Taking care before drop phone into water is much better

    Hello Guest,
    You should handle your device with care. Any device for that matter, would stop working after falling into water. This is because the electronic items and parts get damaged/short-circuited with water. This includes the IC, Processor, Display chips etc. For getting it fixed, you have to go to the nearest Samsung Service Centre and get your phone's screen and damaged parts replaced. This indeed will cause you great money loss, but then it can't be helped. Just be careful in future to avoid such losses. Thank You. Hope this helps.

    Heyy

    Try drying the phone . Take out the battery sim card, sd card and dry it using a dryer.

    Make sure it doesnt have any water content in it.Leave it to dry for some time. After that try turning it on.

    If it doesnt turn on then try hard resetting your phone by pressing the power button plus the home button key.

    You phone should start if it doesnt then am sorry but it might have got damaged.

    Go to a service center and check it out.

    Thank you

    Hi,
    The First and foremost thing that is to be done when a phone falls into water is immediately remove the back cover and the remove the battery after the battery is removed you can either keep the phone is sunlight or you can put the phone into a air tight container that should be filled with rice the rice absorbs the moisture present in the phone so that it will not have any water marks in the phone and also do not shake the phone after it is taken from water. Best method to repair a phone which fell into water is to keep the phone is sunlight for 24 hours followed by the rice package for the next 48 hours once this done put the battery in the phone and switching it ON and it should ON perfectly if that doesn't happen then take the phone to a Authorized service center.
    Hope this Helps.
