    Default Put Samsung Galaxy S4 Active in shallow water, screens not working but everything else does.

    So i put my new samsung galaxy S4 Active in shallow water today and i made sure everything was pushed down and shut so no water gets in, but while taking the photo the screen went black so i took the battery out and dried it now my phone is in rice. is there any way to fix this problem?

    how new? take it back.

    short of that, leave it in the rice for a day or two and see what happens

    Take it back must be a crack or improperly sealed case

    Why did you put the phone in water?

    Did you make sure all of the connections were snapped in? Theres one under the camera that will let water in if its not snapped

    If you had to dry the battery you had a bad seal that rubber seal is what keeps water out its either from the battery door or you didnt cover a port with a flap either case congradulations you now have water damage
