    Question my pearl fell into the toilet :(

    Advertisement



    So my blackberry pearl fell into the toilet and i got it out right away, and took out the battery and sim card and dried it with a towel. I left out all the pieces seperately to dry, the red LED light flashes red if I put the battery back in, is there still any hope? or is the red light a sign of RIP?

    How long did you leave it to dry? I would say 24h+ .. you can also use a hair dryer (dont place it to close to the device, you'll risk damaging internal parts).

    Maybe its an idea to dissassembly the unit and leave them to dry.

    Red light isn't good I assume.. but maybe with a few battery pulls?

    anyways to answer your question. If you think you dried it out enough base on the post i gave then i would try putting the battery in and connecting it to your PC. if it doesnt come up then I would try reloading the OS with this post

    yeah just follow the threads above and a few others on this forum (if you need them) to dry your BB.
    please tell me you were not talking on the phone while using the restroom... that's the one time the BB should be in a pocket/holster (if my friends do that with me on the phone I just hang up on them - don't need to hear it, and you can tell just simply from the echo)

    Good luck

    I done much the same and left it drying for 3+ days. It still took another 3 weeks before the speaker started to work again. Once you get it quick you should be ok. Just let it dry out and when you think its dry let it dry some more. Your hot press or on a window which gets sun will do the job.

    Good luck

    Reading your emails on the throne again? Dangerous business!

    An opportunity for a joke........

    A guy and his wife were getting ready for a date in the bathroom together. The man had a $10.00 bill on the counter, and as he turned, he accidently knocked it off, and it landed in the toilet. His wife saw what happened, and was horrified when he took his BlackBerry Pearl, and threw it in the toilet, and then reached into the toilet and removed the $10.00 bill and the BlackBerry Pearl.

    "Why in the world did you throw your Pearl in the toilet?" she asked, almost screaming. The man looked back at her and said, "Hey, I wasn't going to stick my hand in the toilet just to get a $10.00 bill!"

    When a Blackberry imitates a dingleberry sometimes it's best to wipe it and start over again.
    Just funnin.Glad to see you got it working again.
