Well when ever a phone falls in a liquid or water, the first thing you would have to do is put the phone off and dismantle the parts for it to dry out completely. This is because, the way a phone's main board is designed, any liquid on it will cause a malfunction.

This is what can be done; The phone's main board must be cleaned very well with 'cleaning alcohol' and allowed to dry . To unpack the phone to do this, you would need expert hands to unscreew and dismantle the phone. If you are not sure of how to do this, see a mobile phone technician or any experienced hands.

Normally, you are assured of getting all the keys to work but not all the functions of the phone; though all may work. This depends on how long the liquid still remained on the phone.

The good news is, you don't lose your phone.
Thanks

My 3 year old has changed the language on my sony ericsson w190i phone from english to arabic. I have been trying for hours to get it back to english, but no luck so far. If possible, please help.


just remove your current sim card, get another spare sim card or your friends sim card and insert it in your phone and switch on then follow the instructions for basic setup on your phone and it will directly lead to the language options of your phone, then select the language appropriately

if this did not work go to settings (differentiate menus using the icons) 1st option (general) use your track pad and press it twice this will land on the language menu then press the center button or select button

Call key, end key & clear key do not work. Unable to make a phone call


Possibe accumulation of dirt in the front panel or damage to the pad switches. You will need to open the phone and check on the board, clean and set them , use some methy spirit to wash carefully the accumulated dirt . check the specified pads carefully for any damage to the tracks.
If this wont help must confirm if the interface IC is defective.

I have a Verizon Moto Q. The buttons are not working properly. When I hit the start button, back, the arrows, or center select button, mail button and certain letters it just enters numbers or letters and...


Hi, from the question you posted, there are three likely problems to the phone. One it's either the key button pad is bad which needs to be replace, the interface of the key button pad is dirty which needs to be cleaned, or the glass I.C which controls the key button is bad which also needs to be replaced.
But i think what the problem is the cleaning of the key pad button interface because the buttons are working but they only misrepresent whatever function you try to perform on the phone.
You just need to get a mobile phone technician or an electronic repairer around you to help service and clean the board and key pad button interface, and the phone will start working fine..

Take care
