    Just a slang word for a go, a turn. I think you might call it a shot? I'm not very cultured :laugh:

    since it worked when my PSP got water in it i've put the oven on 's' and i'm hoping it'll dry the phone out

    EDIT:Just looked at the paperwork, the warranty covers accidental, liquid and malicious damage so i should have no problems sending it back if it doesn't work

    I thought "shot" was a standard Scottish slang for a turn. A Scottish guy who used to lodge at my old house always used to say "Gis a shot" when me and my brothers were playing SNES etc.

    Yup, I'm waiting to see the results. It worked for his PSP so um yea why not :laugh:

    yeah it worked, turned it up onto gas 1 cause i got bored

    and no, it's not technically oven baked, as the lowest setting on mine is something like 90

    i put it in the grill, and turn the oven below (they're the same unit), and wait until the phone gets to the point where you can't hold it for very long

    it appears to of worked, there's no water inside the screen now and it's been out of the oven after and hour or so, and has been balanced on top of one of my inlet fans on my PC for a while now, thinking of putting the battery back in, the warranty says you have to notify them within 48 hours so i've only got till tommorow morning now

    and oven baking it probably won't do anything, people here do their graphics cards all the time

    You're very brave! Well done for doing it without melting your phone.

    By the way, there's no screen in a graphics card :p The screen is the first part that would die if you proper baked your phone.

    the screen was water cooled so there's not much risk there :laugh:

    i'm not brave, i just don't like waiting for these things to dry out, i can't stand not knowing whether they're working or not

    Next time put it in the microwave and it will be "done" in seconds lol. Seriously there is a difference between taking a chance on something that is pure dead and just drying something out. Most of the time if a card or something wont work then if it still doesn't work you didn't loose out.

    The other option of course is get grain of rice and let the rice absorb all the water from the phone.

    If you saved all your files on a memory card,if your HTC does it use you can just copy files off the memory card via memory card reader.

    I do, but i don't think it's everything, main reason i want access is because i don't want the warranty company getting away with all my details/contacts etc
