    Long story short, I spilled something on my phone (LG G4 H810), thinking it was a little more waterproof than it actually was, I rinsed it off semi carefully. Well the water seeped in and wrecked the phone for a day or two. After letting it dry out I turned it back on and everything seemed to be functioning, until I rebooted it. After rebooting it, the speaker did not work and I had no cell service anywhere. There is also a 5-7 second lag when pulling down the notification tab after launching a new app. About every 3rd reboot both the speaker and the cell service work. It has been almost 3 weeks since the incident and the problem is still there. Does anyone know what the problem could be? I think it could be something with the MOBO or Voltage, I tried another battery but the problem remained. Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to Android Central.

    Unfortunately, there is no way that we would be able to diagnose this type of problem.

    You'll need to take the device to a repair shop and have them take a look at it.

    I agree with Laura Knotek. The problem with water damage is that its effects can be unpredictable, since it might affect multiple components in the phone. If you replace one thing, it might not address all of the problems caused by the water damage. Pretty soon, you may find yourself spending more money on the repairs than the phone is really worth.

    As soon as a phone gets wet, your best course of action is to turn it off (or remove battery if at all possible). Put it in a ziplock bag and cover it completely with uncooked white rice. That's the easy part. Then leave it in there for a solid 72 hours, more if possible. This is your best bet - and you just may save your phone!
