    My iPhone accidentally dropped into a plate of shallow water, the bottom half first. So the speakers and dock got soaked. Thankfully I moved fast enough that it didn't stay in the water for longer than maybe 5 seconds.

    There isn't any problem with my phone's screen or whatnot, the only thing is, the external speakers aren't working anymore. Music, sounds from apps, you can't hear it from the external. But it works fine through earphones. The ringing alerts work as well.

    What's weird is that when you try adjusting the volume with the rocker, the bell thing pops up but the bars doesn't show.

    What should I do to get it working again?

    My friend when you press the numbers key do they "click" ? If not confirm that the phone is not stuck on headphone mode :D it happend to my father one time; if thats the case you have to suck hard on the hp jack or plug-unplug several times.

    How long should I bury it for?

    ----------

    Yes, the keyboards make the sound. As well as when you press the sleep/wake button.

    How do I know if it's stuck on headphone mode? I tried the plug/unplug already but it doesn't seem to work as well.

    If the keypad (phone app) makes sound its not stuck on headphone mode; to tell if stuck when you hit the volume rockers it will state headphones.

    But i think these is not the problem you are having.
