HTC diamond dropped in water

Hello , groan...

We had a celing flood at work and while we rushing around filling buckets My o2 PDx Ignitio (HTC diamond) took a dive into a full bucket of water.

I rescued it almost immediately and switched it off and have removed the battery and left it to dry for a day. The base lights come on ok now , BUT the screen does'nt seem to light up properly any more. It does for a few minutes and then goes streaky and then black.

is there anything else i can do or am i facing installing a new screen? It is 3 months old.

help

Toby.

    also does anyone know where i can get the removal and fitting instructions for the screen. Despite my typos (above) it is a HTC diamond or sold her ein the uk as an O2 Ignitio.



    thanks

    Aloha, thanks , I've tried something close, Eg leaving in as open as possible on a towel on a radiator for a couple of days.

    but the screen twitched once ,showed me the buttons , and since then has remained stubbornly black. I know the rest of it is working as i have managed to link it to my PC and extract some pictures (of the flood..)



    any other ideas? Also do ou know where i could get instructions/guidance to installa new screen?



    cheers

Try using a hairdryer on it. Open it up as far as you can without voiding your warranty. Don't let it get too hot but the moisture is inside and you may be able to get it to dry out in a couple of days.

    Alas, no, I don't know how to change the screen. I have 2 more feeble suggestions: 1 you're in Hawaii, leave it out for "Mr. Sun" to warm and change the moisture content inside then 2) google for the screen replacement (I found instructions on the web, for changing the skin on a Motorola I730 a couple years ago and it worked exacactly as written, hairdryer and all.)

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Sir, Its sad but true that if you are referring to HTC Touch Diamond Phone, then there is unfortunately no option for extendable memory. You can see the specs here. (In the Memory section) Got 4Gm in built memory, 192Mb RAM and 256Mb ROM.
If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.

I have dropped my htc diamond (sprint) and the screen does not turn on.


I don't know if this is the same problem I had, but I think it is. I dropped my HTC Touch Diamond (standard version) yesterday and when I turned it on the screen didn't show anything.

I took it apart and found out the problem was caused by loose connectors between the main-board and the lcm- and navi-board.

The main board (green rectangle marks the problematic connectors):

Which connect to (green rectangle):

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Htc diamond freezes frequently and chipset overheats. signal is rubbish and calls keep dropping. this is happening on approximately 70 phones. the record for resetting per day is 30 times in 1 working day


You got a bad lot.  Call the cell phone provider for new replacements or upgrade to a different model.  Stick with Samsung or LG brands because they are very reliable contraptions.
