The touch screen on my env touch won't work at all and it is not cracked or damaged


I'm sorry to hear about your misfortune.

There are many causes for a device such as a cell phone to stop functioning correctly or at all.

Dropping it, getting it wet, design flaw, manufacturing defect...Regardless the only way you could get that fixed is threw a manufactures warranty...check your paperwork that came with the phone. Or if you have phone insurance you might be able to get it replaced.

(Getting it wet usually voids warranty's and phone insurance.)

If neither of these apply to you then you are basically out of a phone and will have to buy a new one. You will have to contact your service provider and have your old number and everything switched to your new phone. If it takes a Sim card just pop it in the new phone and it should work.

Post back if you have any further question's or comments.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Dropped phone in water now phone will not turn on

Take the phone apart and slowly dry. I droped my phone in the lake and dryed on the dash of my vehicle for a day or two. then turned on the phone. Never try to power up a wet phone, let it dry COMPLETLY first. Good luck.

My cell phone got wet and i may need a new battery would that erase everything on my phone or is there a way to get everything on my new phone

if the phone got wet it is done, the contacts will corrode over the next two weeks or so if it already has not done so. I have worked for years doing part time work in the industry- If you mess around buying thhis and that then you are wasting money for a lost cause. I am terribly sory to be the one telling you, but if you have the insurance this is covered. If it happens again- drop the phone and battery (seperated) in a pot of dry rice , then use that compressed air to further remove sedimenet once its dry. Hope this h elps and have a nice day

I dropped my LG Chocolate in water and put it in a bag of rice for 24 hours. Everything works perfectly except the screen, which turns blue when the phone is on. How do I fix this.

If you have insurance on your phone getting it wet will invalidate all warranties and insurance. The only time insurance can be used if the phone is malfunctioning (not from getting wet), or LOST. If your phone is lost, they will give you a brand new one under the insurance policy.

The only piece of a mobile that can go bad when dunked is the LCD screen if it has liquid in it.

1. If you do not want to purchase anything, you can try to remove the lens from the LCD screen and see if any water is between the lens and the lcd. (the lens is the glass that covers the lcd which is usually stuck on with double sided tape.)

2. You can purchase a new lcd and install it.

3. to disassemble the phone follow these instructions:

4. replace the screen, and the phone should be good as new.

Buttons and screen do not work


Did your phone get wet or was it dropped before this happened ? The reason I ask is because it sounds like the phone's lcd or possibly the mainboard was damaged.

If you didnt get it wet or drop it then there is a chance the phone was just defective. If you have phone insurance replace it if not you might want to decide between getting a new one or having that one repaired. Normally its more expensive to repair it then replace it.

Dropped phone in puddle only screen is broken PLEASE HELP MEE!!!!

Unfortunately, I would suggest you not trying to fix this. The reason is once water gets inside, any of the parts that got wet will eventually corrode. It might work a day, a week, I actually had my phone work 2 months, then it will stop. You could replace the screen and have it work right away, but nobody could gaurantee that it will continue.

Dropped in water

I got my i870 from my sister a week ago, i got it for boost mobile but the ear speaker doesnt work either, i took it apart and i ordered the flip part of the phone which comes with the whole top section. It should work after i put the new part. it was only $26 off of ebay. the parts were only held up five screws. really easy but you have to be careful and gentle.

Can I Have my razr repaired

Then you should take the phone to a repair center and have it fix for a fee.

The white dot on the back of the phone is to safeguard the manufacturer from malicious damaged or use by the customer.

So if it is red that means if had to come into contact with liquid , moisture or water at sometime.

AT&T isn't going to fix it.
If you recently got it I suggest you buy a warranty and wait a week and then get it fixed threw the warranty.
