    Ok, so the XT1080 is officially dead. A green light briefly appears when I plug in the power, but after a 24 hour charging session, the phone will not power on.

    This is the Droid Maxx that went into the hot tub back in June. It spent a few days in rice, then over a month with its back off in a bag with a giant bag of dessicant.

    So, having resigned myself to the loss, and having replaced the phone, how do I get the data? There area pictures, videos etc. A lot of it is back up, some not. Is there a micro SD card buried somewhere in there I can get out of it, or is it locked up in onboard storage somewhere?

    Have you tried both charging from wall outlet and pc usb port? Sometimes one will charge where other has failed.

    Yesterday I had to hold down the power button for about 10 seconds while plugged into a wall charger to get a Maxx HD to power on. Maybe try that if you have not already?
    To Mt knowledge there is no hidden SD card, just the regular internal hard drive

    Sadly your data can not be recovered if the device will not power on. The Droid Maxx does not have an SD card slot. All storage is built into the phone.

    Hmmm... I had only tried an AC charger.
    I just now plugged it into a USB port on my system, and the green light STAYED ON.
    So, I will leave it for several hours as advised, and the we shall see.
    Thanks to all for your advice and sympathy!

    Any luck with this? I've had tablets which didn't power on, but I found out that the USB cable was bad. A new cable solved the problem.
