    put your phone in a plastic bag with uncooked white rice for a few days it will help it dry out. don't put the battery back in until it's dry. in about 4 days put your battery in and charge it. if it works great if it doesn't work try a new battery, if the new battery doesn't help your phone may be dead. Water damage is very hard to fix if you don;t have skills, but take it to a tech maybe they can help

Sounds like you still have moisture in the device, which is causing the keys to short and behave the way they are.
Completely disassemble the phone immediately, and do what you can to dry off any excess moisture with a cotton swab. Then put the unit in a bowl of uncooked rice overnight to draw out any excess moisture. Hopefully that will alleviate the symptoms and the contacts will not be corroded.
You can get an AT&T GoPhone in the meantime so that you don't have to go 'phoneless'. Just put your SIM card into the GoPhone and your number and service will stay the same.

    You may take out the retaining screws; nothing is going to hurt the phone at this point.

Selectronic redring shower powering up , no water coming out and then turns off after approx 10 seconds


There are some troubleshooting actions mentioned on page 6 and 7 of the manual at this site

http://www.aroundtownflats.com/manuals/Shower%20Manuals/Redring/New%20Selectronic%20Instructions.pdf

The shower is designed to turn off within 30 secs if there is no water flowing through. The issue is why does water flow stop.
It can happen if shower is in overheat shutdown. Need to find if temperature setting is too high. There is a purge sequence to overcome this. See manual.

Moen single handled shower the hot water turns cooler then cold after a minute


Your whole house is likely plumbed wrong so that it is impossible to have equal pressures of both hot and cold at your shower. If you had your home plumbed with aquapex using a radiator for the hot water and a radiator for the cold water and have the radiators fed with a 1 inch line you can have close to perfect pressures.

Low water pressure from my shower.


You probably have a water flow reducer in the shower head. It is a rubber disk with a few holes in it. Just remove it and put the shower head back on. They are installed at the factory to save our environment. (Mine are all removed)

Ceiling mounted shower head (Danze) leaks water for a good 30-40 seconds long after being turned off


you really can not because of the overhead piping holds lots of water and so does this big head....that is just normal for these things...i am a licensed plumber for over 34 years and have done these...its just draining out all the overhead water....

I have 70 psi water pressure at my street meter but only 50 psi or less at my house which is not more than 30 feet away with less than a 4 foot rise. What would cause such a drop in pressure?


Find the pressure regulator and adjust accordingly. It can be found between the street pressure gauge and the hom's pressure gauge. It is usually adjusts by turning a screw.

When the water is turned to hot, it slows down and stops. Plenty of cold water, though.Valve is less than 3 years old.


This model of shower control is a "balanced flow system." This means that water pressure from both sides of the control is equalized by the control.

There is likely something restricting the flow of hot water into the control.

You might try this......

Turn off the water suppling the shower (turn off the water main if nessacary)

Remove the cartriage from the control

remove any visable debris

briefly turn the water on (just a second at the the most) *** make sure the curtain or door is closed first as there will be alot of water coming out of the control itself... Be prepared to clean up some water

reinstall the cartriage

if this does not solve the problem you might consider replacing the cartriage

you might also find that Moen has more helpful info their phone # is 800-289-6636 they have been very helpful the few times i've called

No cold water comes out of one of our bathroom shower


Obviously your plumber when they were building the home hooked up hot water lines to both faucets and never hooked up a cold water line.

MOEN POSI-TEMP GOES FROM HOT TO COOL AFTER 30 SECONDS OR SO


Wow A Mystery Faucet!!! SOUNDS LIKE THE WATER LINES FEEDING THE FAUCET MAY BE SWITCHED. CHECK TO MAKE SURE THE COLD FEED GOES TO THE COLD SIDE AND THE SAME FOR THE HOT. SOMETIMES MISTAKES ARE MADE WHEN INSTALLING THE FAUCET. MAKE SURE THEY ARE CONNECTED THE SAME AS THE 2 THAT ARE WORKING. IF YOU HAVE THE TIME AND PATIENCE, YOU CAN TAKE A WORKING FAUCET AND INSTALL IT IN PLACE OF THE (mystery faucet) AND SEE IF YOU HAVE THE SAME RESULTS. IF YOU GET HOT WATER IN THE TEMPORARY FAUCET, THEN YOU HAVE A DEFECTIVE FAUCET. THESE ARE A FEW TROUBLE SHOOTING TIPS I HOPE THAT MAY HELP YOU.....JOE

Shuts off on its own constanly


Try opening both ports and allowing the internals to dry. I had the same problem and traced it back to water and/or moisture in the phone. The phone is water proof as long as the keys aren't pressed underwater, which in my case ruled out text messaging in the shower...

Hope this helps
