Quick fixes if you have tablet water damage

When your tablet comes in contact with water, the key is to act fast. If you don’t, corrosion can set in and short-circuit your device.

  • What to do with a water-damaged tablet. If it’s still turned on, turn it off before an electrical charge damages it further. You should also try to remove the SIM card, memory card, outer case, and anything else inside or connected to your device. Dry it with a microfiber towel, and store it in a plastic bag.
  • What not to do with a water-damaged tablet. It's best not to move your tablet more than necessary to avoid the spread of more water. You’ll also want to avoid pressing buttons or turning your tablet on within 24 hours. Do not use a hairdryer or heat gun to dry your device—they can fry its components or start a fire. A bag of rice won’t really help either.
