Hi, u have one of the following problems.....liquid, influencing yr power switch or IC, mother board has hairline cracks, or a virus....liquid, can be repaired depending on liquid and length of time since damage, motherboard...not worth repairs, virus, a complete redo of software loosing all data on yr fone.......
The best treatment for a liquid damaged cell phone is to remove the battery and dry the phone out. We take these devices for granted and use them a lot without thinking anything should go wrong. They are so inexpensive that electronic manufacturers would rather just sell you another one every time the lens is scratched. First back up all the data if the unit powers back on. Then either take the phone apart if you have some electronics experience, or take the phone to a service center and hope the technician can salvage your phone. Sprint is one carrier that still has walk in service. The techs are busy (and under paid). If you think the cost for repairs is too much, shop for a replacement.
If your phone is damaged by water, be sure you dismantle the break away pieces and submerge them in a bowl of dry rice for at least 3 days. Rice can help extract and evaporate liquids in the surrounding air.
If your phone is damaged physically or was ever dropped, it's possible that a loose connection formed within the device. Considering liquid crystal displays are made of many individual touch sensors, if your "keys" are on the touch screen. That could be why it doesn't work. Verify if that portion of the touch screen works for anything else. If it does, install a new keyboard on your phone or reinstall the existing.
sounds like some liquid is in your phone? if so how long has the keyboard been inoperable and if its recent and it was liquid try rice...submerging in it for a couple days if it doesnt work hope you have insurance
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!
HUH?!!?!? ... If you take it to a Verizon corp. store it shouldn't cost no more then 50 bucks to replace so long as it's not liquid damaged and within 2 years of purchase date.
Whoever told you 200 bucks was about to pop open your phone and play bar room mechanic on it. Cell phones these days are no long the "pop open and fix em " types ... You do more damage to a cell phone opening it up and trying to fix anything. Hence why all manufacturers now just replace broken electronics ... NOT "fix them"
