Re: won't turn on/critical error

The problem with the phone is in the firmware. There are a few websites who will flash the phone for you for a fee or you can take the phone to a repair shop to be flashed. The water damaged one will need to be taken apart and cleaned first. If you have any questions i provide these services my self and i would be glad to help!

Re: won't turn on/critical error

After losing my phone in the snow for three days, it had to dry out, it's been working perfectly fine, but here for about a week now, it freezes and wont let me push any buttons. Then I take the battery out and put it back in. Once my phone comes on, it keeps flashing "Critical Error CAA5 A1AD". Anyone know how to fix this problem?

Wow, alot of people have the same problem as i did. You phone is busted, broken. You can't retrieve anything from the phone drive. So all you have is your sim card.

I dropped my phone in water i dried it out and left it alone for a day now when i try to turn it on it says critical error caa5 a1ad what should i do

If your device gets covered in water, act fast and rationally, and you may be able to save your device.

2. Pull out the battery.
3. Please your device and battery into a bowl of uncooked rice to absorb any moisture.
4. Please it in a warm, dry place where it can receive direct sunlight.
5. Be patient. It is recommended that you leave it in there for at least 48 hours.
6. After 48 hours, put the battery back in and power on.

Phone in water

Don't turn it on. Take battery off. Put in a bowl or bag of dry white rice, Leave for 3 days. If you are lucky it will be ready to charge and like new after the rice pulls the moisture out.

V3 dead but keypad flashing

I had exactly the same problem. After unsucessfully looking for a solution on the net I removed the simm chip and set it aside. The next day, I put it on PC usb charge and left it overnight. The next day, I powered it up and it worked. I turned it off and replaced the simm and it is now working fine. Go figure...
