    Hi, so i was at the beach today and the phone was exposed to very little amount of water for a really short time, I disconnected the battery, left it to dry in the sun for good time, then i put the battery in and turned it on, the Nokia logo appears on the screen for a long time then the phone turns off, i tried again and this time i got the nokia logo but for really short time and then it turns off.
    When i tried for the 3rd time it didn't do anything no vibration no nothing
    I think the phone is bricked, i tried connecting to PC but it won't show the USB connection, not even in the device manager.

    My question: Will nokia fix the phone as it is still in the warranty period ?
    is there anything i can do to fix the phone, because i wanna keep the nokia repair option to the end because i think this is a software issue?

    Please help me,
    Thank you all

    Water may have entered your phone's components and caused some corrosion. Place your entire phone, with the battery removed, inside a tub filled with uncooked rice for 2-3 days. Uncooked rice draws out water from the phone. Then try to switch it on. If this doesn't work, then you might need to go to nokia care.

    So this means that my warranty (12 months Australian warranty) will cover this issue?

    i think problem is with your SD card. change your pictures storage to phone memory in settings and then see if it make duplicated. and also format your sd card first via pc with card reader and then with your phone. it should fix your problem. :)
