Question about Sony NWZ-A816 Digital Media Player
Sent 6 month old NWZ-816 back to Sony after volume and back buttons wouldn't work. Sony have sent back letter sating it is water damaged and not cost viable to report. They now want £34.08.
I know for a fact that it hasn't been anywhere near water and ranted on the phone to the Sony repair centre. Wanted to speak to the engineer who diagonsed the problem and after much persistance was told they are sent to Hungary for repair. Really annoyed as feel that I'm being ripped off.
Anyone else had this problem?
Try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .
it sounds crazy .
Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.
Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.
It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).
beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.
This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.
