Learn to Solve Vertex Water Damaged Device
Have you dropped your Vortex device into the pool? That’s just a few of the hundreds of ways your handset could come into life-threatening contact with liquid. Well, a voice tells you that nothing good will ever come out of the situation you are in. That voice might be right. Need I remind you that saving your Vertex water-damaged phone is pretty much a coin flip?
Nothing can guarantee the device will actually be rescued. Statistics show that only a handful of devices if taken from a lot of hundreds of water damaged smartphones survive. But, at least you have a chance. I always think that panicking could increase the response time and would cause the phone to get more damaged.
Thus, my first advice is not to panic. Instead pf panicking, act fast and maybe your Vertex device will continue to function.
Solve Vertex Water Damaged Device:
- When you realize that the phone is inside the water or either you or someone spilled water or any other liquid on your phone, you need to take out the phone immediately. Then, place it on a dry surface;
- Do not turn on the phone. No electrical components play well with water when operating. Don’t plug it in either! For the same reason, obviously;
- Don’t shake or blow into the phone. This could also push water into deeper areas of the phone. Do not stick it in the oven, as some may suggest. The heat can damage the delicate electronics inside;
- What you can do instead is to wipe the exterior. You can use a paper cloth or tissue or microfiber cloth to wipe off excess water;
- Next you have a few different options for your Vertex handset:
- One option is stuffing your phone in a bag of dry rice, and letting it sit for 24 to 36 hours or more. This is cheap, easy, and can be done in a pinch. But this method could have some negatives: I am talking about the rice mess stuck in its creases and I/O ports. So, to prevent that from happening, wrap the phone loosely in a paper towel before dropping it into the rice;
- Use a special product such as Dry-All. If you have one, seal up your phone inside the pouch, which is filled with desiccant, and then wait the specified amount of time (24 to 48 hours) to let your phone dry out;
- Silica gel may be helpful, but only if you use a large quantity. I’d suggest a container that’s at least 1-2 quarts;
- And if you don’t have silica gel, a pouch or instant rice, don’t worry. Leaving your phone in open air works pretty good too.
If there’s no way if getting it back, head on over to those sites where people may look for components. Your drowned device is probably still worth some good money, so trade your device and you can use the cash to help pay for a new one – or a waterproof case.
