My lg vu phone fell in a river and it has water inside the screen. im not so much bothered by the screen being a bit messed, but it keeps saying insert smartchip. i put my smartchip in the right way, but...


take out the chip, and the battery and put the entire phone in a pound of dry uncooked rice. leave it for three days. also put the battery into the rice separate from the phone. cover the container with saran wrap or aluminum foil to keep it as air tight as possible.

if you are fortunate by the end of day three the phone will be moisture free.

Smartchip not reading???


if you take sim and battery out for about 15-20 minutes and boot up your phone, you should be fine, i talked to my stepdad, computer freak, he said it could be caused from me not ever shutting my phone off and it just getting hot

Will not read smartchip


I had the same problem but i fixed it. I'm not sure if this will work for you though. I took off the battery door and noticed that although my battery fit, it was somehow off by a few millimeters maybe. I took a tiny piece of paper, folded it and then fit it near the edge of the battery. This pushed the battery exactly where it should've been and then the phone could read the sim card again. I don't know how it got knocked outta wack but this seemed to help.

Sony Ericsson W580i phone will not turn on


same thing happened to mine last year--you need to update the software: http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/support/softwaredownloads/detailed/updateservice/w580i?lc=en&cc=us
your phone should have come with a usb/computer hookup wire (it's gray). Download it onto your phone. It turns out that this same problem happened the other day (so I am downloading it now). it's the only problem ive had on this phone... hope it helps
