Dropped phone in toilet, some sound still works, some don't

Hey there,

I dropped my phone (xiaomi redmi note 4) in the toilet whilst it was flushing, about 2 hours ago. The phone was halve emerged in water, and it was in there for tops 1 to 2 seconds.

Now the issue is that the speakers don't produce any sound, but they do produce sound when e.g. my alarm is set, but when I play music it doesn't. They also work when my earplugs are put inside.

Does anyone know how to resolve this issue?

  1. You shouldve never turned it back on and rather had been patient and take it apart, take the battery out, if you can, and let it dry a few days. It most likely is ruined.

    Thought it was fine, it was on once it fell, just noticed an hour or so later that the sound didn't work.

  3. When a non water proof electronic device falls into water, even for 2 seconds, it most likely isnt going to be fine after it gets taken out. You should turn it off, now, and leave it off for a few days and even put it in a bag of rice to draw out the moisture.

    Sure, will do. The speaker isn't fully broken because sound still comes out of it, but only the alarm sound and not the music sound.

    depending on what was in the water as it dries the salts will concentrate and enable conduction. if the unit is powered the liquid can short the unit out.
    put it in a bag of rice for a few days and be patient

    Just regular tap water.

    even regular tap water has conductive salts in it just at low concentrations. I doubt there was distilled water in the toilet.
