What if you’ve dropped your htc phone in the bath, or left it out in the rain, or even spilled your cup of coffee all over it. Don’t worry, its easily done and there are thousands of other people who have done exactly the same thing.

The thing is, if you’ve done it then other htc owners just like you have done it as well. Hey we all make mistakes. I have a htc Magic phone myself and I love it, I couldn’t get by without it. Well, maybe I could but you know what it’s like these days. You feel naked if you haven’t got your phone on you! You want it back pronto.

Well Where is the htc Water Damage Indicator Exactly?

Here’s what you need to do. The htc water damage indicator is located inside the phone by the battery.

  1. Firstly take the back off and see if any obvious water or liquid has entered the phone. Sometimes you may get away with it and there may not be anything in there.
  2. Take the battery out and look underneath for an area with red crosses, or sometimes it’s a white dot. This is your liquid damage indicator sticker.
  3. If it’s not under the battery, check down in the bottom right.
  4. The little red X’s under the battery  are designed to dissolve if they get wet, producing a reddish-pinkish tone over the whole area. On my htc Magic, I can find it if I take the battery out and turn it over. There it is, the elusive small area with red X’s.
  5. If it’s still got the red X’s, you ok. No water damage, Bobs you uncle!
  6. Anything else, you may want to get it check out. It may be water damaged. Follow the link below on what to do next.

Well my fellow htc owners, you will now realize that once you know where that elusive water damage detection sticker is, it’s not so difficult to find. The key message though is that once you do find it and you have the reddish-pinkish tone over the whole area, take action quickly.

All you need to do is make a new fake water damage sticker thats all white and replace the old sticker with this new sticker, and bring the phone to Srpint for free repairs. Good day.
