It also might need calibration.

Tap Settings (100 times), General (100 times), then Calibration (three times).

Then just follow the onscreen instructions.

Try resetting your sensitivity. Refer to your users manual for how to do this.

Can an Instinct that has water damage be repaired? Is it worth repairing?

You can put it into a bag of rice (dont laugh) for about 3 days after removing the battery and then try to see if it will work but if that fails then I am afraid it is dead.


BTW the rice draws out moisture.

Touch keypad randomly stops working

your phone is a devfector or it has been dropped or exposed to water. my friend had this problem and he took it to sprint. they told him to get a different phone because the data was corrupted by an outside source ( wter, droppage etc.) or it may have a virus in which someone prohibits you to do certain things

Touch screen wont work

Have you tried removing the battery and waiting for a minute and replacing it in the phone.
The phone will reboot and possibly your screen will work again.
