No idea if u have resolved the issue . but here is a guide . Back bottom of the phone two long screws . Under battery there is two screws one top left and one under the void sticker . Then take off the cover over the camera and there will be two more screws . slowly clip off the back case . Then this will reveal the m/board for the phone in the centre there will be a phillips screw wich releases the keypad from the front of the phone .

Hope that helps

Dropped phone in liquid. Now it vibrates constantly, even when turned off. Can I fix it?

Once electronic equipment has been dropped in fluid and powered up it rarely comes back to life properly. You can try turning the unit off, dismantling and spraying the boards with a WD40. Then spray with a good electronic cleaner. Power back up and hope for the best. Cheers

If you read the manual that came with the phone, it will tell you which port to put it in, quite often these are consealed behind a small flexable flap on the side or bottom of the phone.

I dropped my phone in tea, the phone still works but you cannot see anything on the display screen. Is there something I can do to fix it. Sony Ericsson Walkman W350a.

Short answer: No. Long answer: Your phone has water damage. Warranty is void if your phone has water damage. Since you KNOW you've dropped it in tea, you should consider it a lost cause and move on. For others - if you do something similar (dropped in water): Immediately turn it off. Take the battery out, then proceed to completely dismantle the whole phone. I have in the past used kleenex paper to tuck into places I can't dismantle, to get the water out, but they usually say to dismantle it, then let it completely air dry. It may take a week. If it, after it's completely dry, still works, then maybe you got lucky, and maybe it'll start acting up in a while, problem by problem as the electronics corrode inside the phone. I have heard of phones surviving water damage with only minor problems, but it's rare.
