Tech News Desk – Like every year, this year too Holi will be celebrated with great pomp. While playing Holi, we use smartphones to capture the moments. But while clicking photos, the phones get damaged due to water entering the phone. The biggest problem is due to lack of water. While playing Holi, the phone should be kept in a pouch. But if water has gone into the phone and you are wondering how to fix it, then we are going to tell you the method that will get your job done.
Switch off the phone
If the phone has gone under water or got wet then it is advised to switch it off. Do not attempt to turn it on in this case. Do not press any button on the phone. Due to this there is a danger of short circuit.
dry with a hair dryer
Once the phone is off, take out the SIM card and memory card. After this, dry the phone with a hair dryer. But keep in mind that keep the hair dryer a little away so that the strong wind does not reach the phone.
put inside the rice
Clean the water visible on the top of the phone with a paper napkin. If you do not have a hair dryer, then put the phone inside dry rice. Be careful not to let the rice get inside the headphone jack, charging port or SIM tray. Keep the phone inside the rice for at least 24 hours.
Laminating the phone is the best option. This definitely makes the phone look old. But water prevents it from going. It doesn’t even cost much. There are also many types of liquid protection available in the market, so that you can keep the phone safe. If you are going to play outside on the day of Holi, then definitely keep polythene in your pocket.
Stick tape in phone holes
If you do not have polythene or it has become wet, then definitely do one thing in backup. Stick the tape on the mic, charging port, headphone jack, speaker and other places on the phone. This will cover your phone and water will not be able to enter inside.
