    Nexus 5 Dropped In Water, Now Red Blinking Light, Hope Or Death?

    Hi,
    I droped my Nexus 5 in water and a red blinking light is now flashing after 3 days of "rice treatment"... What does this light mean? Is there hope? Should I changed the battery, or charger?
    Thank you in advance!

    I don't recall but is the battery removable? If so yes, always remove the battery...
    3 days should have removed any water...

    I read about a new protocol when drying out phones. Kitty litter, rice has been a popular material to use when drying out a phone because it helps to absorb the moisture, often returning the phone to a functioning condition again. But kitty litter, particularly the kind which contains crystals, is now preferred because of the silica which is in the litter.
