New Delhi: Holi is going to come in just a few days. Holi is a festival of colours. If you want to enjoy this festival, then you have to take it out of the house. Many people play Holi with water. Along with this, nowadays people have a habit of capturing every moment in the camera. In such a situation, if your phone falls into the water while clicking photos from the smartphone on Holi, then you do not have to panic, rather think about drying the phone. In this news, we are telling you some tips which can be useful if the phone falls into the water. With these tips, you can save the phone from getting damaged.

What to do if the phone falls in water?

If your phone has fallen in water or got wet, switch it off immediately. Actually, if the phone is not switched off then there can be a shot circuit. In this case, do not try to check whether any of its buttons are working or not. You just turn it off immediately.
After switching off the phone, separate all its accessories. If possible, separate the battery or SIM card and memory card and keep them on a dry towel. Actually, doing this will reduce the risk of short circuit.
After separating the accessories of the phone, you have to dry all the parts of the phone. For this you can use paper napkin. Apart from this, the phone can also be taught using soft towels as well.
After drying from outside, it is also necessary to dry the phone from inside. For this, keep the phone pressed in dry rice in a utensil. Rice works to learn moisture fast. Apart from this, if you have silica gel pack then you can also use it. Silica gel packs are kept in shoe boxes or gadgets boxes etc. They absorb moisture faster than rice. You have to keep the phone in a silica pack or rice pot for at least 24 hours.
When the phone and all parts of the phone are dry after 24 hours, turn it on. If the phone is not turning on now, then take it to the service center.

Don’t do this at all

If the phone has fallen in water, do not try to dry it with a dryer. The hot air from the dryer may melt the phone’s circuits. If the phone is wet then do not use its button as it increases the risk of short circuit. Do not use the phone’s headphone jack and USB port until the phone is completely dry.
