Question about Nokia 6133 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

I got it wet!!

A couple weeks ago, I dropped my phone in water. I took it out, but didn't act quickly. I just came home took the power source out and blow dried it. The phone works fine, the front screen works, but won't light up. The Main screen doesn't work, the screen is completely black. If i put it up in the light, I can see it,but I have to look real hard. And the keypads and stuff won't light up. How can I fix this?

The first thing is to know if the phone dropped in salted or fresh water. If was in salted water, forget it, you let it pass so much time, but if was fresh water, try to open the phone ( get a Torx 6 or 8 screwdriver in home depot) and use pure alcohol with and old toothbrush and clean the mineral deposited on the circuits, gentle brush it and let it dry, then reasemble the phone a it will work perfect

Charging port may be damaged. Take it to your cell provider or repair shop and let them look at it. Could also be the phone is damaged some how. Did you drop it or did it get wet in ANY way?

Same trouble with my Curve a few months ago. You are likely going to have to get a replacement.

Once the damage is done, it's done. For future reference, the longer you can afford to let it dry out (a week or more even), the better chance it will work and keep working.

Wet phone; incomming calls cant hear me..


if you took the phone apart and let it dry but its still acting funny you very likely fried the computer board inside the phone. If the phone was on when you dropped it in liquid you probably did. Also, the lemonade having sugar has likely caused corrosion inside the phone. you could clean the inside of the phone with alcohol and see about getting it to co-operate, but be careful and keep yourself grounded and leave the battery out when you clean. You might be s-o-l

Dropped in water


I got my i870 from my sister a week ago, i got it for boost mobile but the ear speaker doesnt work either, i took it apart and i ordered the flip part of the phone which comes with the whole top section. It should work after i put the new part. it was only $26 off of ebay. the parts were only held up five screws. really easy but you have to be careful and gentle.

Phone won't turn on/charge


Kikimenor: Advise. If this is your 3rd RAZR V3, you must encourage Cingular (Now is the new AT&T) to replace your whole unit with another model. A friend of mine exchange his phone 4 times, until Cingular replace it. Motorola had too many problems with RAZR phones and that's why they launch quickly the SLVR L7. They still producing the RAZR, because users love the style and shape of the phone, but reality is that Motorola had several heavy issues with RAZR (Bluetooth, batt, microphone, etc.) If you're paying for an insurance on your unit, encourage them to replace it.
