methods to remove water from your speaker image

Have you dropped your mobile accidentally into the water? It would be frustrating for you not to hear the voice as well as before your mobile was dropped into the water. You must be in search of the best way to bring back life to your speakers and enjoy the clear voice you were enjoying in the past.

Don’t worry, I’ve got you on this. I am enlisting some of the practically possible methods to regain your speaker’s previous voice.

Wipe out the visible water

After you have dropped your phone into the water, don’t start to panic, immediately take it out of the water and absorb all the visible water on your phone and speaker with the help of a tissue paper and place it in an open shadowy area for at least 24 hours to allow the water to evaporate.

Shake your phone

This can help you a lot to remove any remaining water from the speaker. Shake your phone gently like you do to a pen trying to drip out some ink from it.

Use the Fix My Speaker Web App

Here I am talking about Fix My Speaker Web app sound. This kind of sound plays between the range of frequencies 20 Hz to 200 Hz. But we recommend a frequency of 165 Hz, which I have provided to you all, as this is the pure tone. This range is commonly referred to as “bass” frequency. To use the sound, press the button and let it go to 100 percent, try it at least 3 times before moving on.

Silica-gel packets

Some of you might have seen little bags of grains in the box of shoes or the handbags when you buy these items from brands. These packets are of silica-gel, which is used to protect the items from moisture and keep them dry. If using the online sound didn’t help you out, silica-gel packets are going to be your speaker’s saviors.

  • Immediately take it out of the water and power it off.
  • Absorb the water from your phone and speaker with the help of tissue paper.
  • Remove the SIM card, battery if possible, and any other removable accessories.
  • Take an empty box that can be closed and place your phone into the box.
  • Now put silica-gel packets enough to cover your phone
  • Now wait for at least 24 hours, 48 hours would be better.

Drying through Rice

Some people have said that placing your phone in a bowl of rice might help your phone get dried. For your convenience, I’ve tested this theory myself, and guess what it didn’t help instead it placed dirt on my phone, and also a tiny rice particle went into the charging socket and it gave me a hell of a hard work to remove that particle. Furthermore, this makes my phone dirty too.

So, instead of putting your phone into the rice save your rice for your stomach, of course after cooking. I wouldn’t recommend using this method. If it comes to this then this should be your very last option.

Using a Blower

We are talking about using a cold or normal air blower, not the hot air blower which is used to dry the hair, because using a hot blower would get some parts of your phone circuit melted due to overheating. Place your phone at some distance and blow some cool air on it for some time.

Consult an expert

If any of the methods given above didn’t work for you then take your phone to an expert.

Important Precautions

  • Immediately turn off the phone after taking it out of the water.
  • Don’t shake it too hard.
  • Keep the speakers facing downwards while shaking the phone gently.
  • Don’t charge your phone.
  • Don’t try to insert any hard thing e.g., wire, into the speaker or charging slot as it will cause damage to it.


Turn the phone off.

Dry out the phone.

The Silica gel method is the best.
