Water in my phone speaker


The Masked Tulip

Question

The Masked Tulip

I have the answer for this so no need to answer. Thought it was useful to stick here in case others have the same problem.

I just spilt a bowl of peas in water over my smartphone. Despite wiping the phone quickly the sound of my speaker was muffled and crackly.

I tried a hair dryer which did not work. I tried sucking it, blowing it, sucking it again. You get the idea - jokes welcome.

I did a google and one suggestion was to play the below audio. I did so 4 or 5 times. It worked. My speaker now sounds better and louder than before the spill.

I assume this could work with tablets as well.

Another option for a submerged device... Buy a bag of silica cat litter. https://www.wilko.com/en-uk/wilko-silica-diamond-gel-cat-litter-38l/p/0433627 get a baggie and put phone /tablet  and lots of silica in. Leave on radiator for 24+hours.. remove battery if possible.  maybe worth wrapping devices with external ports in Muslim cloth to prevent dust ingress.
