Question about Samsung SGH-t629 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Keys stopped working, and can not connect to the network

I like the phone, but this is MY SECOND ONE....
first of all, the keys started acting crazy.. for example if I pressed numbers 5-9 they didn't work, and sometimes the arrows don't work properly: pressing down actually goes up, and up still goes up, but left and right doesn't do anything. What is up with that? As if that wasn't annoying enough, it now fails to connect to any network, and is constantly searching for a network. I know I have reception, because once I put my SIM card in my old phone, I get full bars! What is going on? It doesn't seem like anyone has that problem.. but is there anyone with something similar?

Did you ever get the phone wet at all? i got a few drops of water on my keypad once and the keys started acting crazy like yours...if thats the second phone that youve had like that and its still going crazy...id go with a different phone. some phones just have a defect and always will. but try taking the battery out for a minute...then boot it up and see if it works....but if the phone is defective still....call your service provider and they should be able to send you a new one free of charge if the problem isnt your fault. at&t sent me 3 new ones because i kept having problems with the same phone each time they sent me a new one. crazy phones. hope this helps!

My arrow keys stopped working cause of humidity


There's a chip behind the arrow keys and back/clear keys. You can take th ephone apart and get to it, but it's like $60 for a new one and I don't know exactly how to get it out. This is the piece you're looking for http://www.cellphone-repair-shop.com/sony-ericsson-w580i-s500i-keyboard-mylar-with-flex-cable-and-side-key-buttons_SXK109745412.htm

Motorola RIZR 'Send' key won't work


When you have a device that is liquid damaged--no telling what will happen to it. You are really luck that that is the only thing that happened to it. For some people, their screens go out, the device will not connect to the network, or the whole entire phone doesnt come on and becomes short circuited and starts to smoke. If you have insurance, that is the only way to get another one for no charge. You cannot fix liquid damaged phones that have been submerged in liquids. There are many myths that say you can place your device in three cotton socks and put them in the dryer on low for 7 minutes or put your phone in a bowl of rice but you have to do that within minutes of it being exposed to liquid. If those keys dont work soon, you may need to purchase another phone because your motherboard is damaged. That is really unfortunate!
