I do receive a red light and then it will load half way then it says `ji error` i have no option to re set it then when i do it continues to do the same thing. Thank you for your help

SOURCE: i dropped my phone battery in water

you can try the rice method , lay down a bed of rice ( un cooked ) and then cover it with rice and the rice will **** it up like a sponge , but it takes about 12-24 hours before you see any change

Help! Cell phone black


I've dealt with a lot of cases of devices being dropped in water. Sometimes, you cann get lucky and get it dried off before damage happens. A lot of times, the effects occur later. The moisture has a way to find a spot and the corrosion takes a little while to happen. I'm not very helpful but it's a fact of life: electronics and H2O don't mix. Sorry!

Let it dry out for another day or two too make sure it's completely dry inside. Or you can you a hair dryers to blow out and dry the excess water inside.

In case none of this will work, it needs repair.

Ask a repair shop to take the mobile apart and clean it properly - just drying is not sufficient. There is a very good chance its permanently fried.

Do not use a mobile in the bathtub.

Recent phones dont agree with water to much, but what you can do is pull it apart and spray it all with a electric cleaner, but if you have insurance on your phone that would be the best way to replace it, warranty wont cover it. you could try to hard reset it but most likely wont work still

Okay heres what you do guys!!! Just happened to me today and I fixed it. Mine was at the bottom of a hottub for 2 days XD.

The power in the phone needs to run out
then, plug the phone up
wait about 30 seconds(download screen should be up and it is charging xD.)
Then Take the battery out and unplug the charge from the phone
Stick the battery back in
Wait about 30 more seconds
Hold down the Red Phone untill it turns on.

FIXED! YAYYYYY!

Black screen Sony Ericsson K850i


Hi,

I just had the same problem. I tried everything including resetting the whole phone upgrading the software etc etc.

I was convinced it was a softare problem, but my screen only went black when i press the buttons on one side of the keywpad so i started thinking it may simply be hardware related.

I tried taking off the case but didnt have the screw drivers to do this.

Eventually in a fit of rage I threw my phone on the floor (Carpetted floor) and too my surprise the problem got better! I basically gave my phone a few more whacks and it started to work fine again.

I am not suggsting you start whacking your phone, but i imagine if you took off the case and re-fitted it this would work.

Good luck.

I just dropped my Katana version one in the bath HELP


I'm sorry to tell you this but the phone is a goner.  You need to replace it.  As no amount of cleaning will render it reliable again.
Most phone companies have good deals and cheap phones.
When you receive advice from this website you have to understand that without the item in front of us, we are only able to provide "a best guess" as to what the problem might be based on you description of the defect.  If you haven't described a clear and precise description of the defect you decrease the chances of an accurate reply.  Thank you.

Wet Phone - White Screen


take the phone to a service centre who will attempt to do what we call an ionic bath. this is a bath of electricity and pure alcohol.
they should then use i fibre glass pencil to clean trhe contacts properly. you may also need a replacement screen depending upon how badly the water damage is.
