Question about HTC G1
My g1 was in my bag and so was a soda can. I didnt know the soda can had exploded so the soda kept on leaking and soaked everything. Now my g1 buttons are sticky (except keyboard) and when i turn the phone on, nothing comes up but a warning sign.
I hated that happened to you but I hope that you have insurance on it. Anyway for the stickiness very lightly damp a Q-tip or the tip of a towel and rub against the buttons that are sticky. Use water and a very small drop of rubbing alcohol. Now for the warning signal maybe just leave the phone alone for several hours or days and then test it later or open the phone take the battery out and see if it looks like the soda had gotten down in the phone . If it doesn't it might have a good chance of coming back on but if it does place the phone in a draining position so that the remainder of the soda can drain on a cloth or something. Please do not use a blow dryer if it is still wet because it might make it worse that what it is. But even though i don't recommend it if you want to try it hold the blow dryer back a few inches and move the phone in different positions as you do it. If all these fail (I'm not an expert) call customer service.

You can try to open and clean it yourself, there is a T-Mobile G1 Repair Guide. Once you have it open try to brush the residue of the liquid damage off the affected parts. If that doesn't help replace those parts , they are ususally available on Ebay. If all else fails there are third party T-Mobile G1 Repair Services but that can be quite pricey.
