    Hello everyone. So yesterday after i came back from the gym and plugged in my GS3 for charging i realized something was wrong. It wasn't charging. I slid my back cover off and my phone was a little wet from the inside i guess because of the sweat. I cleaned it with a kleenex but still no luck. Buried it in the bag of rice overnight. When i tried it today the charging started just for a few seconds and then no luck :(
    Please help me if there is anything else i can do at home. Can't go to the store till the weekend.

    Hello and welcome Feliine:)
    Do you have another cord to try?
    Does this happen charging via computer or wall charger?
    Did you clean the battery contacts also?
    Try plugging it in without the battery, then insert battery.
    Does it fail charging when phone is off or on or both?

    Thank you. :)
    Yes i tried with a spare charger still the same. And it's happening with the wall charger I didn't tried it via computer. I cleaned it thoroughly. I'll try plugging it without battery as you said i just hope it works :( it's still in the rice.. I'll try to keep it there atleast fr 48 hours. And yes, whether it's on or off, there's no activity regarding battery. Is there anything else i could do if the rice trick doesn't works even after 48 hours? Thank you so much.

    Not that comes to mind, but I find it hard to believe that a little moisture/sweat would cause this. :thinking:
    Although I have heard about odd things happening to a device when it got a little moisture inside of it, whether it be from sweat, or just in a steamy bathroom when someone showers.

    Well, if I think of something else, I'll post back here.
    How old is the battery itself?

    Exactly. That's what breaks my heart the most. I've seen people getting their phone back to normal even after diving with it inside the pools :/
    I bought this phone in Jan 2013 and since then I've been using this battery with not a single tiny bit of a problem.
