To repair a wet, non-fuctional cell phone, works on I-Pod too!

to repair a wet non-functional cell phone:
get a disposable bowl and, a bottle of 90% isoprophyl (rubbing) alcohol; this can be purchased at a drug store.
remove the sim card and, the battery from the phone; place them to the side. place the phone in the bowl to insure that the phone lay flat in the bowl and, that the bowl is high enough for the alcohol to completely cover the phone without overflowing.
take the phone out of the bowl and, pour the alcohol into the bowl; lay the phone face up in the alcohol; make sure that the phone is completely covered with the alcohol.
leave the phone in the alcohol for one hour then: take the phone out, dispose of the alcohol safely and, let the phone dry for 24 hours on a paper towel. then: put the sim card and, the battery back into the phone. turn the phone on.
the phone should be working again; this almost always works but, in the event that the phone does not work it will need to be replaced.

My blackberry scrollball is not working. It canonly go left to right and vice verssa but can not move up or down

Have you tried cleaning it? The best way I clean mine is using a q-tip, dabbing it in rubbing alcohol, be sure to squeeze the excess out of the q-tip, and roll the wet q-tip all around the ball. Make sure you roll the ball so that all of it gets the alcohol on it. You can use the other side of the q-tip (dry side) to dry the ball.

The phone is not giving out ringing sound, even on chckng settngs

if you have tools to open your unit,you can open it.try to clean the speaker connector and earpiece connector and the the board where the coonector is connected.Clean and rub it with pencil eraser, or a cotton buds wet with small amount of rubbing alcohol.(be sure that never wet the board not to produce a short circuit)..
if you have already dis cleaning method and your fon is itill dont have any sound from it,then you will need to bring your cp to a qualified technician becoz you fons problem might be on the amplifier of your cp which is an integrated circuit.

Got my trackball a bit wet and now wont work, what should i do?

You might have damaged some circuitry, but can try cleaning the trackball with alcohol and a Q-Tip. You need to roll the ball around with the alcohol-soaked Q-Tip, then let it try. This will have the nice side effect of helping drive off any leftover water, too.

I have a LG vx 5200 that displays the words "Car Kit" after getting wet

Take your phone apart, an using a soft toothbrush clean the CN302 connection at the base of your phone, next to the connector there's a U204 IC with identinfication AAD1 on it. Those are the main areas that needs to be cleaned. For better results you can use a bit of NON-alcoholic cleaning detergent. This will solve your problem.
Best of luck

Car kit

there is no setting to find. clean charger port with rubbing alcohol and a tooth brush, be gentle. turn off - let dry and recharge for 2 hrs. worked for me. pain I know. taking battery out will not help. but should check battery conections to see if they are clean,do the same as above. if purple you have water damage. verizon warranty is void if this is the case.
