Re: Phone dropped in water....789 keys not working

I'm sorry but those buttons are probably suffering from corrosion which is like rust in a car you can hide it but it is still there.

I dropped my phone battery in water

you can try the rice method , lay down a bed of rice ( un cooked ) and then cover it with rice and the rice will **** it up like a sponge , but it takes about 12-24 hours before you see any change

Is is fixable problem 789 keys not working?

Hi,what makes number 789 keys not working is because there is an IC on the phone board that controls those keys. The IC is bad and will need replacement for those keys to work.

When you replace the IC those keys will function again.

Have a nice day.

Dropped lg cookie in the bath 2 months ago turns on but all i get is a blank screen and cant put my pin in

It has a little red ot on the battery that shows them if it fell in the water. They all have their own policys concerning this, don't be shocked it they try to hit you for some cash to rectify this. It's the first thing they look at. Even on the phone, they will ask you to remove the plate and tell them what color it is, the only way yo may get around this is if you tell them whatthey want to hear, because the phone is going to be shipped someware else, "not to the guy you are talking to on the phone" and by then it's out of your hands and you got a replacement, just don't tell them I told you that. But first find out what color that little thingy is supposed to be before getting wet. Water is their out unless you have theft on your policy. Then just report it stolen, I normally don't give this kind of info to clients, but phone companys are like nasty greedy overpriced dudes, good luck'

I have had my samsung impression for 3 months. First issue is during texting, after sending a few text messages, it will not allow me to send anymore unless I turn the phone off and then back on. Okay,...

unfortunately there is no quick fix for this as far as i know. my first impression (that i only had for 3 1/2 months) decided to completely freeze the touchscreen, when i had absolutely no water damage and had never dropped it. i tried EVERYTHING took out the battery and the sim for an entire day, turned it on and off, and nothing worked. One thing i know, try your best not to drop this phone because my friend also had to get a new one because she dropped it several times, and they are VERY sensitive, and dropping it throws off the calibration, as does getting liquid on the screen. I went to a local at&t store and they said I would be eligible for a new phone because I had not caused the phone to stop working, but they could not give me one at the local store. i went to a DSC (device service center) for at&t, and the guy took one look at my phone, tried to play around with it, and within a couple minutes said I would be receiving a new phone that day. I received a new phone, and even got my numbers and my sim transferred for me. if your phone continues to freeze up, definitely bring it in. hope this helps :)

I dropped my in the bath tub giving my little girl a bath. I pulled the back cover and battery out and sat it upside down, back faceing up, under a lap and turned it over every hour. The next morning put the battery in and closed it up, no problems - till the next time it went swimming and had to repete the process.

I drop my phone

Give it a few days to dry out, remove the back and the batter and let those dry seperately. If you're lucky it will dry out and be usable. If not, you'll have to talk to your provider about replacement options. Good Luck.

Drop phone in bath

The only thing you can do is dry it out more with heat(hairdryer). Remove the battery while doing this. If you still have the same problem then yes, unfortunately the keypad has shorted out.
