    How do I remove the internal memory? Also, another thread on this site said to let the internal power run out (How long does that take?) and then power the phone back on. Does that reset the memory?

There should be some way to reset the phone / handset - you could try and leave the battery and memory out for a while and put the phone and memory in a warm dry place for a good 24 hours and try it again.

If it still does not work then if its under insurance / warranty then get it replaced. If not then there may be a key combination you can do to reset it ie the power button and one of the other buttons on the phone holding them down together for several seconds for example.

Soft reset:
Smartphone devices don’t have reset button so simply:
1. Press the Power Button and turn the device off
2.
Press the Power Button and turn the device on
Any stuck program will be cleared from the memory
Alternatively remove the battery
Hard reset:
You can easily reset your phone to its default settings. To reset your phone:

1. In Idle mode, press the Menu soft key, then select Settings ➔ Reset Settings.
2. Select ALL
3. Press the middle button to make a selection press the OK soft key
4. Enter your “user defined”password and press the OK soft key. (There is no default one, so unless you created one you don’t need it.)

At the “Reset Settings?” prompt, press the Yes soft key to reset, or the No soft key to cancel. Once your phone has been reset to its default settings for those selected options, it will restart itself in order to incorporate the new settings.
Alternatively:
You can reset only your problematic area:
• Sound Profiles Settings
• Display Settings
• Phone Settings
• Alarms
• Bluetooth

    For internal memory there should be a slot on the side of the phone somewhere ( may be covered up by a rubber pad of some description ) which you can pull back and remove the memory card.

Hi,

Irrespective of any model of mobile phones when they come in contact with water high chances are there to have the circuit damaged. Its nice that you dried it out but still need to follow a proper method of drying the things. Please follow the bellow link which shows a video how to do it:

In your case since it shows "Download " on turning on the display clearly shows a memorey problem which has developed. Either remove the memorey and then try rebooting or need to replace the memory.

Thank You

Phone displays "DOWNLOAD" in a red bar across a black screen.


The phone has been exposed to moisture, so you must let the phone dry out. Take the battery out immediately, open your ports to expose as much of the inside and let it dry out a day or two. Should come back. Good Luck.

exposing the phone into water will cause problem to your phone. a corrosion inside of your phone might occurs that's why the screen messed up. I strongly suggest that you call Samsung hotline 1-800-726-7864 to fix your problem. Their representative will create a service ticket for you to be able to send it in for repair.

Wife dropped her Propel into glass of tea. got it out and dried it off, now displays "Download". What does this mean?


By "dried it off" I assume you just dried the outside, this will not prevent internal damage obviously, the best thing to do is immediately remove the battery to prevent shorts in the I.Cs and then remove the housing and place in the hot water cupboard for a few days. Your wife's phone has probably suffered a short and is probably therefore wrecked.
