I dropped my Galaxy Note 5 in water.
I didn't want to purchase my Galaxy Note 5 due to fixed SD Card & battery but esp. SD card. 1st time dropped a cell phone in H20~4" of clear water, top up & pulled out quickly, LCD screen flashed on/off a few times, (there were minor scratches, tiny outside edge chips before dropped) the front face went black. I did not have any rice so I used a cool setting on a blow-dryer a few minutes on sides. I took it to Best Buy (where I bought it) and we hooked it up to my computer to charge it and the green light at the top was on the whole time but still black face so couldn't access it or download Samsung Smart Switch software. A good thing green light was on, a sign the SD card probably was OK. I have insurance but only get it replaced. 5 hrs later, I put it in rice for 48 hrs. and after charging, no green light shows up. I had phone deactivated & activated my old Note 2. so still want to retrieve contacts, photos and data. It is a cumbersome phone to take apart to gain access to my SD card only "Just-in-Case" it works but worth a try...not $300.00 worth so help? I've seen 3 YouTube videos to take it apart and not one of those show which part is the SD Card and if we can easily take if off the mother board and method of accessing it??? HELP!!! Katherine
