    Ipad2

    My iPad was dropped in water, someone told me to put it in uncooked rice and leave for 2-3 days as it will suck all the moisture in it. I did the same and today after 3 days took it out and connected with the charger, it showed the battery charging sign for a short while then disappeared. Did the same again for a couple of time and it would do the same again. And I could also see some moisture trapped in behind the screen as it shows the sign, please somebody advise what to do now.

    You can try putting it back in a ziplock bag or tupperware container with rice and leave it for a few days and see if it helps. It may be that too much water got in and nothing will save it. If that's the case you can take it to apple and see what options you have; worst case scenerio is you're going to have to buy a new one at full price or see if they have refurbs available for a discounted price.

    Your best bet is going to be trying to get a new one via your insurance company, Apple won't touch it once they know it's suffered water damage

    Please don't take this as a suggestion - just some information to consider.

    There are products on the market with about the look, size, and consistancy of rice grains, that is made specifically to absorb moisture from the air - such as in an RV or the like. I'm a full-time Motorhome resident and that's how I learned about it, and an RV supplies store was the last place I saw some. I have a feeling that the absorbancy action of this stuff is far greater than rice.

    The thing I don't know about, and that which should be looked into, would be the chemical properties and possible corrosive actions on the items in close contact with it. If the device is a "lost cause" by any other actions, it probably couldn't hurt.
