How To Save Your Phone From Water Damage;
During the current rainy season, heavy rains are falling at several places in India. Since mobile phones are always with us, it is more likely that water will be damaged due to rain. This article will show you a scientific first aid guide on how to protect your phone from water damage.
I want to tell you that we all know that abstinence is better than cure, so we need to go out whenever it rains in the rainy season. If we go out, we should be able to keep our mobile. Or you can put it in your waterproof bag.
STEP #1: REMOVE YOUR PHONE FROM THE WATER IMMEDIATELY
As long as your phone is submerged in water, its circuit is more likely to be damaged. Quick Reflex makes the difference between a working phone and a dead phone.
STEP #2: POWER OFF AT ONCE
Immediately remove the phone from the water, turn it off. If the phone is already locked, do not try to turn it on or force it to boot.
STEP #3: REMOVE THE CASE
Because if the phone is in the case, it is holding in the water. So removing the case will allow the drain and the phone to breathe. Remove SIM card and memory card.
STEP #4: DRY THE OUTSIDE OF THE PHONE
We all know how important mobile is to us, so we need it to be that too, so we need to love it with tissue paper to make it light.
Be sure to drain the water from the charging port, buttons, and headphone jack.
Remember: Do not shake the water too hard to try to shake it. Because of this, water can penetrate deep into the phone and spread inside.
STEP #5: PLACE IN A VENTILATED PLACE
Many guides will suggest using a hairdryer or rice bag to remove moisture from inside the phone in this move.
Do not use a hairdryer to dry the phone. This is because the water can be blown inwards or the phone is damaged due to high temperature.
Many articles will say that putting your phone in a rice bag will help get the water out. This has been proven wrong. The only effective way to fix this is to dry the phone.
STEP #6: WAIT AT LEAST 48 HOURS
The longer you wait, the more successful your drying process will be. Wait at least 48 to 72 hours.
After 48-72 hours, congratulations. If your phone works, you’re successful! Check for any problems for a few days as there may still be some issues. Regularly check the display, microphone, earphones, charging, and all buttons.
