Default [Q] (Q) Water damage Moto G

So my Moto G fell in the water for like 5 seconds, and then I was stupid and turned him on after 10 minutes. Well the screen worked but speakers, camera and headset plugin we're defect. So then I putted him in a bag of rice for a day, but now he won't start up, he doesn't shows the 3 white leds. Is it the 0% bug?

Sorry for bad English.

if you are sure it is 100% dry, then plug it in the charger and hold the power button for 2-3minutes. the white led should blink few times. leave it charging for an hour and than unplug it and hold the button and it should turn on.

Ive seen people put their Moto G in water for 30+ minutes, and it was fine. That nano protecting coating is supposed to help.

How long did you put the phone in rice ? It s at least 24h, and even 48h in several cases. Did you take off back cover and sim card ?
Other solution : put your phone in classic (not microwave ! :-/) hoven (not sure of the english word) during 15 minutes at low temperature : 60 to 70 degrees max.
Already tried this tips with a Motorola Milestone 2 and it worked.
Good luck.

Take off the battery cover and dry it out if you haven't already.
This girl put it inside the water for a full 30 minutes, and if your phone fell in for 5 seconds im pretty dam sure it could live.

I like the phone. But guys, it's misleading! My phone didn't even survive 5 seconds. Don't trust that videos. Or try it out yourself. Hmm, now it's in the charger and the white led is constantly on. But I can't swich him on.

But does it seem completely dry inside ? Strange you can t switch it on at all.

I think you made a big mistake by turning it on after 10 minutes, might have caused a short circuit......
