Unhappy [Q] Help!! Nexus 5 Water Damaged

Hi all,

Need your help here. I dropped my Nexus 5 into water and I immediate dry it with a hair dryer. I am able to turn it on the second day, but the below issues came out:

1. Cannot detect and connect to any phone network.
2. Keep on restarting
3. Heats up quickly
4. Battery drain out very fast (in 4 hours, the battery will drain out, it is just turned on and off, restart and restart)

Does anyone know how to fix it?

Default dry a device

Hello,
droped my Samsung Galaxy S2 also in Water. There was absolutely no function.

I disassembled as much as possible (remove back cover, battery, SIM-card, SD card, ...) and rest it 3 day on a top of a radiator (normal temp). After this I put it in a cookingpot.
To prepare the cookingpot as a dryer:
-bottom layer 10mm salt
-upper layer 20 to 30mm rice
- last layer your device and all parts you disassembled.

Cover it or put it in a plastic bag to prevent fresh humid air coming in and wait for another 7 days.
After this remove your device out of the cooking pot, assemble, recharge battery and good luck

Remove the battery from your phone and place your phone and its battery into a ziplock bag of uncooked rice for a long time the rice wants or any lingering water and may save your phone. I saw that trick on several tech shows but never actually tried it so look it up on YouTube before you do so
