BLU Users: Known issue is occurring after updating, preventing you from logging in. Update at your own risk! Released December 2015 as a budget smartphone from BLU.
you’d have to clean it just like other devices that experienced water immersion. You will have to take it apart.
Remember do not try to charge, sync or otherwise use your phone. This potentially can make a bad situation worse.
The very first step I would take is to disassemble your phone. Since we do not know what odel your phone is, we can not help you with the how to disassemble your phone. Once disassembled take a careful and close look at all components and connectors. Truly assess the damage. Look for major corrosion, evaluate the pins in the connectors etc,. Take a look at all connectors as well as cable ends. You must remove all the EMI shields. Once you got the gross contamination cleaned, use 90%+ isopropyl alcohol and clean your parts some more. For a proper cleaning, use this guide. It was written for a Apple iPhone 3G but it is still pertinent to your phone as well. I can not stress the importance of a good cleaning enough, so do it over and over while replacing the alcohol after each cleaning. Do not use compressed air for the cleaning since that can drive liquid as well as corrosion particles into areas that will cause trouble later on. Do not use drinking water, if you need to use water, use sterile water. Also, you do not need to leave it to dry for a day. Isopropyl alcohol in the higher concentration will evaporate quickly and dissipate the water. The importance here is the cleaning. The best cleaning of course would be with an ultrasonic cleaner, so consider to get it professionally cleaned Do not forget to replace the battery. This is a must and not an option. It will fail if you do not take care of it now. After all the reassemble your phone and re-evaluate. Keep in mind that water damage is the hardest to troubleshoot and to repair.
