Exclamation Wet Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

Hello guys, last two month i was listening music through my blackberry in bathroom.
and i grabbed it with my hand wet. after a couple of minute, the keypad doesn't respond at all.

i pulled the battery out and let it for a day, but it still not working.
until now i still have this problem.

is there anyway i could fix this?

You probably didn't let it dry. The typical drying procedure is to remove the battery immediately and place the device in a bag of rice for 5 days.

As for a fix, toss it out and get a new one. Water and electronics do not mix well at all and too many things can be damaged.

No. If it got wet it is probably dead.

Interesting, how wet was your hand that it did this?
Never a good thing to use it in a bathroom
