Son got water in his phone, tried to dry with silica beads and sunlight, still did not work, screen would go on, but battery life said 100% as soon as it was unplugged from charger it would go off. Saw a sign in Staples about Tek Dry Device Rescue, if it didn't work, I wouldn't be charged-nothing to lose. Low and behold, new life was brought to the device!! Works great...get it too a Staples Tech Center quick- tech said works best within 48 hrs.
Phone dropped in the loo for seconds - tried everything to dry it out as it had message 'BATTERY TEMP TOO LOW' and wouldn't charge. Samsung told me it was beyond repair.
Two weeks later I have my phone fully working!!
Put the phone in the oven . . . Yes the oven! At 50.degrees. Keep the door open to warm and dry out the phone. Leave for 2 hours then plug the charger In and keep in the oven. Mine fully rexharged after about 3 hrs. Worth trying as a last resort. Especially if you didn't back anything up !
dropped my phone in the potty. lol. well. I dried it with a towel as fast as possible. noticed condensation on the camera. I got my hair dryer out and used it on all the openings till the condensation was gone. Luckily, it worked. For a minute it was acting funny, ie, the keypad while texting wouldn't work properly. Shut my phone off and used the hair dryer again. Kept the hair dryer about a foot away from the phone for about 10 minutes. Charged it. And it works like nothing happened. Hope this helps. Btw, it was only in the water for about 1. second.
Wpb, 18 Mar 2017Does that really work cause I had drop my 6s edge in the toilet but it was working fine after ... moreIf you have a samsung galaxy s6 and you drop it in the toilet like i did, it will survive if you put in a bowl of rice for about 2 and a half days. It will fliker a few times but nothing major will happen. The charging will be slower and downloading apps take a while aswel

I dropped my phone in the pool for like 7 secs and took it as quick as i could and wiped it, it then went black. Showing nothing, i thought it was the battery so i charged it and in doing so, my screen stayed black and there's now a constant red light.
I was watching youtube while bathing and then I closed my eyes. When I opened my eyes I was shocked to see a corner of my phone inside the water. I immediately took it out and then opened the sim card slot and try to shake the droplets out. Then I went to my fast charger to charge it. It charged, and I could use it fine, but when I unplugged it it just turns off. It only works when plugged in. Any ideas on what I can do?
My s6 fell in the sink while I was brushing my teeth and it won't fast charge, help!!

I took it for repair under... moreMy Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge fell in the bog after trying to dry myself just after a quick shower. l was using it to play my favourite YouTube music in the bathroom. l had placed it nicely in it's leather and plastic pouch and tucked it inside my big drying towel, so that it doesn't get condensation water inside. It all happened in what seemed to be a split second, l lifted my drying towel and that's when l heard the bang sound and the music turned off soon after. l saw my phone in clear toilet water, in a rush to pick it up, l managed to pull the cover first, the phone slid in. l had to pull it out on it's own and started drying it with my towel, that's when l saw that it had shut it's self down. l didn't know what to do, l banged it repeated on my arm, to try and force water out, holding it in the middle. l then did a daft thing, plugged it into charge and tried switching it on. It brought up the first Samsung logo nice and bright, all of a sudden the screen went green and twitchy, then quickly faded away until the lcd was just black. l then unplugged it from the charger and used my hair dryer to blow dry it, l was surprised to see water droplets come out of the edges of the phone, every drop l managed to get out, l dried it with my towel. After about 20mins, no more water was coming out, so l switched it on thinking that it was in the clear. l don't know if you were born during the black and white TV's, when you were trying to search for signals by tuning the knob, it would often display a horrendous display filled with lines of dots of black and white scattered about. l then went on Google to see if anyone else had gone through what l was in and lucky me, l wasn't alone. l had not realised that the S6 Edge was not waterproof and l mustn't have tried to switch it on because of the possibility of frying the wires inside. That's when l realised that l couldn't switch it off by just depressing the power button, so l left it like that and inserted it into a loose plastic then filled it with rice to absorb the moisture all day. l made sure that the rice was completely covering the phone, some people had suggested to leave it tied up for 2 days but knowing myself very well, l wasn't gonna wait that long. So l went to work and left it with the screen on, l was hoping it would drain out all the power by the time l get back in 9hrs. l wasn't expecting much when l came back home but l was relieved to see that screen turned off. l just opened the plastic bag and took the phone out, pulled some rice out of the sim compartment. Of course the battery was drained, so l put it on charge hoping that the rice did it's job. For about 2mins it didn't show any sign of charging, then it suddenly showed the battery with a little green line and twitched off, l did not remove it from the charger. This continued for the next 5mins or so until l was bored of the happenings. l touched it to feel it's temperature, it was freezing. l thought to myself if the fast charger isn't making it hot by now, l have to use my body's heat to warm it up, so l put it under my chest and slept for about 3hrs then woke up to see if anything had happened. The battery was full up, so l smilled in knowing that it had stopped twitching. Turned it on and it took a little anticipation and boom everything l have was exactly displayed as it was. l first checked my private G+ profile, everything was normal, l then checked my pictures, then YouTube, then sound, everything was normal except for the water droplets in the back camera compartment which is making the pictures blurry, l hope the droplets to have disappeared by the time l should be waking up in 3hrs. l can't help it but say, l'm so relieved, l thought l had lost my 500quid just like that, see l paid cash for my phone and never insured it which was a daft thing to do too hahaha, l'll never learn, for now l'll go back to sleep and see what happens another 3hrs. l'm sleeping on it again.
I dropped mine in toilet but despite rice trick it wouldn't charge. I took it for repair under warranty and kept quiet about the toilet praying they wouldn't detect water damage. Any they didn't so replacement mother board at no cost. Ok lost my photos but small price to pay. The rice is essential!
