Question about Nokia N73 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

LED Problem My phone was exposed to steam and a little bit of water but it was not soaked in water (like...I didn't drop it into water or spill water on it) Then for a short while the key pad was unresponsive. But it just works again in a few minutes. The same thing happened twice. Now whenever i put the battery in my phone, the blue LED on the bottom right side of the phone turns on (the camera and photo buttons) even when I did not turn the phone on. I took the phone apart but the inside is not wet. Is the circuit board short circuited? Should I get it fixed? I think this might use up a lot of battery power. If I don't get it fixed, is it still safe to use? Please help me fix it!! Thank you!

How to get almost ANY stain out of carpet! WITH ONLY WATER

This is a super simple way to get just about any kind of stain out of carpet, I used it on a grape jelly stain that was about a day old, and it worked.


Fill a bowl with at least 5 times the amount of whatever caused the stain.

STEP 2. (optional)

put a little bit of laundry soap in the water, swish it around.


Dump the water onto the stain, DON'T RUB IT IN!!


Soak up the water with a towel, paper towels, whatevers handy, blot it, but don't rub it in--the rubbing or scrubbing you usually associate with getting out stains is what smears the stain cause into the carpet, or fabric fibers. It's important to not let the spill get "enmeshed" into the fibers, the water sort of will lift the spill off of the area.


Repeat steps 3 and 4 until spill is gone.

My shark steamer is not steaming like it should

you used tap water and it is clogged from mineral deposits. You can try soaking it in CLR to dissolve deposits or use a fine piece of wire or a needle when it is cooled off and unplugged and not under pressure.

Got a little water on a H881C phone...wont operated properly

Normally when electronics are exposed to water there is nothing you can do short of taking it to a professional for repair and even then there may not be hope for it. If it does happen (exposed to water) leave it off for several days put it in a bowl of rice. The rice may soak all of the water out. If you can remove any battery doors the sim or anything else easily taken apart this may help. The main thing is not to turn it on until you are sure the water is gone.

Good luck

I have a nokia c5 mobile, everytime i'm on the phone to someone the volume during the call is very low though the volume is maxed out. This did not happen before.

If you spilled water or any drinks or liquid on your cell phone, or if it was in the bathroom while you were taking a shower, it is possible that the audio is damaged. I spilled a little bit of water on my cell phone and had the same problem.

Just purchased crofton sm 102 steam mop. instructions say will steam when light turns green. ok, it steams for about 10 seconds and thats it!!!!!! tried several times with same results

I had the same problem. Seems the little gizmo in the base that pushes up the water release valve is set a bit too low. With the water tank removed, you'll see a plastic circle with a plastic "x" in the middle. A tiny drop of glue on the "x" to raise the level a bit did the trick for me.

I dropped my phone and it could not on now

Due to hazard some phones are not working. If you dropped in water try with this steps.
  • Use cotton swabs to soak up water in crevices and on any fragile, exposed circuits. If you have dropped your cell phone in water, it is also helpful to disassemble it if you can and let all the parts dry separately.
  • If the phone will turn on, you can try to make a call to be sure it is working properly. If you put your water damaged cell phone back together and it won't turn on, it is likely that some water has gotten down inside the phone.
If dropped in floor, please bring it to service center for repair.

We had the oven on, and steam came from area behind the back right burner. Food burned a little bit.

Hello- Oven vent exits this area. Very hot exhaust - you will see smoke and or steam when sumpthin burns. Scrape and clean spills w/water. Avoid 'self-clean' function- NOT healthy for ANY range-no matter what the salesman said. - Hope this helps- ED

Can't get milk to foam

Place 1/3 part distilled white vinegar and 2/3 part water into the water reservoir. Turn the machine on and wait for the heat light to go off. Once the heat light goes off, turn the steam vs. water knob to the water drop icon, and turn the main function knob to steam/water. Make sure to have your frothing cup underneath the steam element ready to catch the water. The vinegar/water solution should clear out the calcium that clogs the steam element. Also, remove the cover to the steam element and dip it in a bowl with vinegar for about 5 minutes, and use something like a pipe cleaner to clean out that cover. Then apply vinegar and hot water to a rag and clean the calcium off the shaft of the steam element. Once you are all finished with this, run plain water through the espresso maker on the steam/water setting to clear out the bitter vinegar residue. Now, try again to make espresso and froth it.

Since milk contains calcium, the steam element has to be decalcified more often than a regular coffee maker. The EM-100 is a beautiful machine, but it is definitely high-maintenance - you will probably spend more time cleaning it than making cappuccino, etc.

Good luck!

Dirt/Collection Tank Bissell Little Green

I had the same problem, so I took out the black stopper, and soaked the whole thing in bleach water for about an hour, then I took a hand full of " aquarium " rocks and put them inside the tank, and shook them inside using a bit of the same water and then got rid of the rocks,( the rocks worked as an scrubber ) .... it worked pretty good
