Coffee damage to a Nokia 3100

Today my child split a cup of coffee on my phone. Unfortunaetly this was not cleaned up straight away. I think my phone spent around 3 hours at most in a small puddle of coffee. Please can someone give me some advice as I can get my phone to turn on but I cannot get some of the buttons to work. Any advice? Thanks

Re: Coffee damage to a Nokia 3100

Have you wronged this child in any way? not only s/he kills it with coffee, but s/he just leaves it there??? ;] my sympathy. I posted a while back an answer to a very similar problem, hope you manage improving it -,p97334/Samsung-12-Button-LCD-Prostar-DCS-Phone.aspx The most important thing to spend time and money on is your SIM, with all the memories. Take it out ASAP and if it doesn't work on another phone find a lab that will work on it, give it a chem bath, anything. The 3100 sells here for 50 Euro or less, so its not that tragic. it's just a shame to loose all the numbers. Good luck!

Tea got spilt on it. It worked for a few min. then screen dark and won't light up. Everything else works. What do I need to replace?


Even "clear" Water left with electricity will continue to cause damage... It must be dried before power is restored.

There is an immediate and urgent need to get ALL the power removed from any ELECTRICAL device that has moisture exposure.

If it was tea with milk... (mine was coffee with cream & sugar... full cup turned over on my DELL PC in 2002)...

I learned right there how to pull the battery... pulled the hard drive
rinsed it all the rest with clean water... and again with 90% rubbing alcohol... gently blew everything dry with compressed air and let it all dry for several days... turning parts over each day.

Three days later I reassembled it all back together
and it is STILL running TODAY.

Hope this helps!!

My mobile fell into a cup of coffee, how can i dry it out?

You could possibly dismantle it & dry it that way but any moisture in the parts you can't reach will/may prevent it from restarting. What I'd do if it was mine is take it to a phone repair shop ask them for a price.

Coffee got on phone.I took battery out right away,put everything in rice.After 24 hours put battery back in .no picture or anything on screen,but i was able to make calls,i then put the phone on charger...

when a phone is liquid damage especially salt water, coffee and soft drinks then very likely it will not work properly especially the screen as the liquid sips through the edges of the screen

Phone swam in coffee, vibrate problem.

If the phone is worthless to you without vibrate mode, you should remove the battery and immerse the phone in distilled water. Agitate it for a few minutes, then dry it for another week, rotating the phone to a different position every day.
If that doesn't work, call your service provider about replacing your phone. I think you will find repair to be the most expensive option.
You can save money by downgrading on some features. For instance, do you really need a phone that will work after being dropped in coffee?
