Water damaged need help please

I have a ZTE BLADE ZMAX and a couple of days ago it fell in my dog's Water. It doesn't have a removable battery so I dried what I could. With everything still inside I place it in rice. But what I didn't do was turn it off I completely forgot that step. So when I woke up it was working fine so I went about my day but kept it in rice to be safe i guess. After a few more hours the screen just went black I could still here the ringtone and such. ... so I took the SIM and SD card out and finally officially turned it off and put it in rice in a zip bag covered up . ..... what should I DO

Hi,

As you know water and electronics and electricity are not a good mix.

The water causes corrosion and provides circuit paths for the electricity which were not in the phone's operating design and could damage the components.

Rice is good to eat but does nothing to fix the problems caused by corrosion

Don't Put Your Device in Rice. Here's Why

First do not turn on your phone and then you need to with the phone turned off, remove the battery as soon as possible from the phone to minimize further damage.''

Then you need to dis-assemble the rest of the phone and clean all the affected parts using Isopropyl Alcohol 90%+ (available from most pharmacies) to remove all traces of corrosion and water. Do not use "rubbing alcohol" as in some cases this is <70% IPA, can contain scents and is not as effective. If you do check the label to verify the amount

Here is a link that describes the process.

Electronics Water Damage

You may have to replace the battery as it is very hard to recover a battery from water damage.

As always with electronics, especially surface mounted PCBs be gentle when handling and especially when brushing away the corrosion. You do not want to remove any components from the board.

Hopefully after you have done all this the phone might possibly work correctly again.

Here is a link to a video which shows how to replace the screen in your phone. It is helpful as it shows how to dis-assemble the phone to gain access to the components.

If this process seems too daunting, take your phone to a reputable, professional phone repair service, experienced in water damage repair and ask for a quote for a repair.

If you decide to do this, do it sooner than later.
