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!
I dropped my S6 into my sink whilst I was brushing my teeth... Pulled it out straight away but now I just plugged it in and it won't charge :'( SHIT! What do I dooooooooo?!?!?!?!

omarqayum83, 07 Aug 2016brother i have samsung s6 edge plus.yesterday i used my mobile in rain.it was working fine.but... moreThis happen to my the baby drop off my s6 edge in the bathtubs just few seconds and when take workin fine but in few minutes the phone turning off and try to tunr on the screen change the colors and don't response the screen i put on rice bag zipplop take out the air and place on my dashboard for couple hours is very hot day in the night take out mi car and waiting one day more now is working perfect and this happen two months ago.
So I had my phone in the back pocket of my pants and as I was going to the toilet it fell out into the toilet. It was submerged for about 5 seconds before I pulled it out. I immediately dried it and swung it around. I grabbed a ziploc bag and some rice to put it in. I only turned it on to shut it off but a notification came through and the sound didn't sound right. So anyway after shutting it off I put it into the rice and set it on the car window in the sun.
When I got home that night, about 12 hours after the accident and it sitting in the sun in rice, I put it in the oven at the lowest temperature and kept the door cracked a little. I've done the oven heating twice now in the last 48 hours of it being off and in rice under heat. I took out the sim card yesterday and there doesn't seem to be any water damage to that and all my camera parts don't have any fog or water in them.
I'm praying like crazy that it works! I've left it off and have tried to do everything I can for it. I will probably use my hair dryer to gentle blow in it. Going to continue nursing it today and tomorrow and I might try to turn it on tomorrow evening.
Any suggestions? Anyone had this happen before and taken these same revival steps? How did your phone do?
I have the Samsung S6 and last night I dropped it in the toilet. I don't exactly remember what happened after I removed it, however it is off and I have tried several times since to turn it on. It is sitting in rice now and it has only been a few hours. Did I possibly ruin it by trying to turn it on?
jackx, 08 Jun 2016Total success...I said in my post last night my camera on phone was still not working properly... moreHi jackx,
I left it in rice for 20 hours or so and switched the phone back on. It's working. However, the front camera isn't. The screen brightness has also dimmed down a bit by 10% so need to make it brighter. Also switches off randomly when not plugged in to a charger. I'm at work right now and will take about 7 hours to reach home. Do you think I should put in rice for a couple fo more days and be (more) patient? Will keeping it on for 7-8 hours be a problem? Kindly let me know, your solution has helped me out.

I have a Galaxy S6 Active. Yeah the whole waterproof thing is a total scam/joke. It fell in water at the bottom of my raft while on the river, maybe 1 inch of water for less than 3 minutes and now it won't tunr on. When I plug it in to charge it the blue light comes on after like 10 min of being plugged om but thats it. It worked last night but the screen faded into a white screen then went totally black. It's in rice now.... I hope this works! Someone told me to put it in the freezer with paper towels but I'm not sure if that's not going to make it worse!

My s6 edge was exposed to w... moreIf the rice method fails and the phone keeps short circuiting it can still be fixed.. You have to heat up the back cover with hair dryer and slowly pry it off with guitar pick ... Remove any screws to access motherboard. And then you carefully wipe down every wire plug and chip (every piece of the motherboard that u can physically access wipe it down with alcohol swabs.) Then u can blow dry the inside and glue the back cover on again and your phone will work like new. This last resort method always works because it allows you to clean off all of the corrosion and water damage that happened inside. Good luck
My s6 got exposed to some water, I left it off for a day wth air blowing into it. When i turned it on everything was fine, the screen turned on, nothing was flickering but...... it only stood on for at least 10 seconds. I really want all my pictures and videos from my phone but its hard to back up the pictures on google when it only stays on for a few seconds. Is there anyway I can recover the picture while the phone is off and connected to my laptop via USB ?
Any ideas would be super helpful, please thanks
