Question about Samsung SGH-a737 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Dropped phone into water

I dropped my sgh-a737 phone into water. I pulled it out immediately and removed the battery and let it dry for a bit. When i put the battery back in the phone turns on and works normally but now the select button, down button, and end call/turn off phone button does not work when pressed. Any solutions?

You can try to disassemble the front cover and clean the joystick.

The ultimate solution is to replace the joystick yourself or at a repair store, since samsung probably wont accept the phone for warranty effects

Good luck

I dropped my phone in the toilet. I took out the battery and let it dry. When i turned it back on the screen just says downloading error v5.50. I dont know what this means or how to fix my phone

Hello my friend,if the phone`s board is oxidized now there is nothing you can do anymore.You should immediately open your mobile unplug everything and try to dry everything with a hairdressers gun and leave the battery and the Sim card out for some hours when you dropped it into the water.Also make sure that Sim card and battery is completely dry before install it again.The only thing you can try is to go to your manufacture support site and download the latest firmware and reinstall it.

My smasung sgh-a737 cell phone fell into water, and stopped working. It has been 'drying out' for more than two weeks, but it still does not work. Is there a way to repair it?

In this kind of situation, immediately remove the battery when it falls into water. Now if you didn't do this, there could be a possibility of damages of some components due to short circuit. The best step to do is to get it repaired from a repairing shop near you.

Dropped my phone in the toilet and doesn't stay on now

Hey, it happens! Next time though, find a bottle of alcohol, remove the battery, and soak the phone in a bowl of rubbing alcohol for a few minutes. If alcohol isn't available, sink it in a bowl of water until you can find the alcohol- Bring it out of the alcohol, THEN break out the rice, etc.
I'd guess the logic switches are compromised, preventing the turn-off.

any water or liquid exposure on the phone will damage it's mother board. It needs to be fixed and needs a replacement on other parts on it, there is no assurance that it can still be fixed.

My Samsung sgh-a737 won't turn on. I have tried everything. Taking out the battery. I mena everything. I have dropped it a few times.

I would suggest to replace the battery first. That is usually what the problem is. If you have done this and you still have same problem then it is very likely you have a loose capacitor or resistor that may need to be re-soldered

Cell phone will not turn on when only using battery power

Have you tried leaving it over night plugged and on and see if that helps? If u pulled it out of the water quickly, that might do the trick.
