    Okay so let me start off by saying that about a week ago, my lumia 900 had a glass of water dumped on it by my cat.

    I immediately turned the phone off by holding down all the buttons until it shut off. I then put the phone in a bag of rice and left it there for an hour. When I came back I noticed that my phone had turned itself on! Now all my phone does is display a black screen with what i expect as it wants me to plug it into a pc. The only problem is that when I do plug it into a pc then start up the windows phone program, it flashes for a second saying "connecting to device" then goes back to the "Connect your Windows Phone to Continue" text.

    Can anyone help me?


    I have attached a photo of the screen.

    It looks like you need to flash a new ROM, go to xda forums and check there. I think that will help.

    Is it Zune you mean when you say "windows phone programme"?

    It is also possible that the device might be irreparably damaged from the water.

    Yeah that's what I think, but it doesn't hurt to try!

    I'm going to move this thread to the Mac OS X forum.

    Oh, sorry, I didn't notice that you were on a mac. Then it's probably damaged by the water :(
