smartphone liquid damage recovery
  Smartphones have found their way into the hearts of many. There’s so much value attached to these gadgets. As if to entice us more, mobile developing companies have continuously developed more advanced phones that are not only pricey but also a show of class and elegance. That said, accidents do happen, or we get clumsy at times and before you know it the highly treasured gadget can find its way into water or any other liquid. This blog post discusses some of the dos and don’ts of recovering water damaged phones just in case you find yourself in such a situation.

The Do’s

Take your phone out of the liquid it’s dipped in. Going by the prices of some of the smartphones today, no one wants to lay eyes on such a sight. As much as the situation would be devastating for many, the first step to possible successful recovery of your smartphone is aptly taking it out of whatever the liquid it’s dropped in. If you allow your gadget to stay a second longer in the liquid, then you are only reducing the chances of it surviving the ordeal. So here’s what you do, take it out and immediately switch it off. Your phone may seem just fine but it is very important that you shut it down just in case the opposite is true.

If the phone has SIM cards or memory cards installed, safely remove them from their slots. You can also remove the phone from any protective casing or accessory such as flip covers and back covers. This is important because the covers could be holding some water/liquid within the corners of the protective cover and keeping it that way only allows more contents of the liquid to find a way into the internal parts of your smartphone. If the battery can be removed, then quickly remove it from the phone. Try and wipe all the liquid that you can see on the surface of the phone with a soft surface. You can use a towelette or tissue paper.

The Don’ts


Do not try switching on the phone again. I know the temptation is real; wanting to switch it back on to see if it is still working. The truth is that this could end up causing further damage to the phone. All phones have a series of electric circuits and by turning it back on, you are only increasing the chances of the charged circuits coming into contact with water. As we all know, water and electricity have never been a perfect match.
While opening the back side of the phone, be careful and desist from tampering with the parts of the phone that are covered by a warranty. Do not try to unprofessionally dry the phone using a hair dryer or anything of the sort. Why so? doing so might seem like a remedy but in the real sense, it could cause more damage to your phone. For example, drying the phone using a hair dryer could end up exposing your phone to excess heat which could damage your phone. Another danger of blowing the phone is that the act can end up spreading droplets of the water further into the electrical circuits.

Ensure your Airpods are in range of your iPhone

Apple developed these iPhone accessories to connect to your iPhone by use of the Bluetooth technology and it requires devices to be within a close range for it to function effectively.

Put your Airpods into Bluetooth pairing mode

Putting your Airpods into Bluetooth pairing mode enables a user to connect their Airpods to other Bluetooth devices not linked to one’s iCloud account. You should then go ahead to pair your iPhone with the Bluetooth device.

Reset all settings

common macbook problems
  MacBook computers are developed by Apple Inc. and target the consumer and education markets. It has been branded as the bestselling Macintosh as users don’t have to waste their valuable time troubleshooting problems. While this is true, a few issues arise while using Mac and listed below are some of the best methods used for MacBook repairs.

How to fix startup problems

Sometimes you will find that your Mac laptop will not turn on and this mostly is due to plugging issues. What you should do in such a case is change the socket you are plugged in to ensure it’s not the issue. Ensure also that power is going to the screen and the brightness level is turned up.
If the MacBook is flashing a question mark on the screen or you get a blue screen once you turn on your MacBook, then you have a startup issue. If it is displaying the flashing question mark you have a failed disk space and you should put your Mac in recovery mode and choose the correct startup disk which is Macintosh HD in most cases. In the case of a blue screen you should start it in safe mode and if the problem persists you should check your login items.

How to fix performance issues

Is your Mac running slow? The first step in the MacBook repair of this issue is to check the root of the problem. This is done by opening the activity monitor and clicking on the memory tab where a list of all the currently running problems pops up in either green or red color. Those in red color are the ones slowing your Mac down. You should select the application with the largest share as it is hogging your CPU and close them down from its menu.
We have all tried at one time to connect external devices to our computers via Bluetooth in vain. The MacBook repair for this problem is to restart your Mac. You should then click on the Bluetooth icon at the top right of your Macs menu bar and turn the Bluetooth on and off and then try to connect your device.

How to fix unresponsiveness

Your MacBook might freeze while you are in the middle of an urgent task and the recommended MacBook repair for this is to force quit. But be warned because you might lose important data. An unresponsive application might also be slowing your Mac. You should click on its icon in the dock and force quit.
A spinning beach ball might also appear on the screen of your Mac and this is attributed to low disk space. It also indicates that too many processes are running co-currently and it cannot take in any more commands at the moment. It is advisable to have a 10% of your total disk space free to have such problems.
If you experience delays in shutting your Mac down it might be because of applications that are still closing and you just need to be patient and give them time to close. You can either long press the power button or force quit if the problem persists. Forcing quit however is not recommend for MacBook repairs as it might lead to loss of data.
