Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

My blackberry pearl flip got wet

I let my phone dry out and turned it on, it all seemed to work but there was water between the lcd screen and the phone case. I went online and learned how to take the phone apart. I did notice corrosion around the connector of the lcd screen & tried to clean. Anyway I put it back together and turned it on, now the screen does not work. The phone seems to be fine except for the screen. Is there any tests I can perforn to diagnose the real problem?

Sorry to tell you but the back light on your blackberry pearl probably burnt out. That is one of the most common issues with a wet phone.

You can find blackberry flip 8230 and 8230 LCD screen replacements on ebay. Took a while but they are available now.

They are a little tricky to replace but not to hard.

Blackberry flip phone got wet


Try not to power it on untill it is dry. I hear a good way to dry electronics is sticking them in a sealed bag with rice in a warm-ish area. The water evaporates and is absourbed in the rice. If you are still having problems, either disasemble the phone and make sure there isn't any sediment on the board. I'm sure someone can recomend a good electronics cleaning product to purchase.

good luck

Call the provider. They may replace it,. if you have theft, you may be better off going that route, there will be a charge. If it dries out and works you lucked out, but we are looking at a minimum of 1 to 2 days, and the phone has a little part built in to tell them if it was exposed to water. So don't try to get over on them, or they will know right away. I think it may be a 50 dollar repalcement fee if it's a new phone, you really have no other choice at this point,

Phone won't turn back on


No. There are some sellers on ebay which sell you a kit to clean up water damage on your cell or BB, but it's super hard to do without breaking the device. Even with instructions, it requires you take everything apart etc.. And its like $40-50 for the kit.

Sometimes you get lucky and up to 3 weeks later the device will dry out and work, and I've had some work the next day.. but only about 33% of the time do they come back at all...
