Hmm.. i have a sony ericsson w580i and i dropped mine in a lake a year and a half ago, after 3 days of airing it worked just fine. My situation may just be a fluke but i would need more details to find a solution to your problem, such as why would you think your phone has water damage?

Post more details in a comment and i will get back to you ASAP.

The Sony Ericsson w580i is one of Sony Ericsson's lines of Walkman-branded handsets. These music focused phones are popular globally, but few of them have made it to the United States. The W580i is one of the few that has, carried by AT&T. And it's a good pick for the carrier.
The sound quality through the included stereo earbud headphones is superb and if you turn on the MegaBass boost feature in the Walkman player, the phone outputs full and powerful sound that booms. The W580i also has support for A2DP which allows the phone to play music via Bluetooth to stereo headphones. Like other Walkman phones, the W580i supports music files in the MP3/AAC/AAC+/e-AAC+) formats and you can rip music CDs using the included Disc2Phone software for Windows or using Sony Ericsson DVD Ripper for Mac.

My back key, up key and left key stoped working!!!!!!!


YOUR PROBLEM IS NORMAL. YOUR PHONE'S KEYPAD MUST BE USED VERY FREQUENTLY. JUST GO YOUR PHONES SERVICE STATION AND ASK TO CHANGE YOUR PHONES KEY PAD WITH A NEW ONE. IT CAN SOLVE THE PROBLEM.

SONY ERICSSON W580I DISPLAY PROBLEM.....


More than likely you will need to reseat the lcd connector.

Worst case is you need to replace the lcd screen.

A new LCD screen runs about 15 dollars shipped from ebay2.gif.

The W580i LCD is easy, easy to replace. Probably one of the easiest I have ever done.

Check out the following link for instructions on replacing the LCD display and links to buy the screen.
