Question about Nokia 6300 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

I have the same problem, though it did go in the open sea.

I dipped my phone in sea water and that sort of killed it. Now when I start it up, the backlight and keypad lights are not switched on.

When I start it up with a SIM card, it just goes blank and the LCD is on with a battery symbol on the top left.

When I start it up without a SIM, I am asked if I want to continue with Accept or Reject as the options. I tried pressing the keypad on both options, but nothing happens ... probably a broken keypad as well.

I opened up the phone and tested the LEDs for the keypad and they do light up when a voltage is applied to them.

I dried all the other components on the phone printed circuit board and even cleaned it with a brush and a bit of alcohol, but can't get access to the phone memory.

I don't mind losing the phone, but I really want to get access to my calendar, contacts, msgs and notes if possible.

Any help is greatly appreciated ...

    I have placed the phone in a lab oven with the temperature controlled at 50 deg C in an attempt to dry it out. I left it there for more than 24 hrs ... but still no luck

Please dry up the phone with your hairdryer without putting the heat on. There may be some traces of water playing dirty tricks. And dont be in a hurry. And you should have removed the battery immediately to avoid any short circuits. Hope there are none so far.

My 20hp Honda motor quit on the water about 1.5 hours into our day. The green oil light was on but it just stopped and then would not start again. It pulls easy but just won't start,,,, any ideas?

Check oil level on dip stick, probably low. If that's not the problem check fire at spark plug. If that's not it remove and replace kill switch key, check for fire again.

It can be a defective=> W10408180 Water Inlet Valve
or the problem can be a defective=> 2162361 Micro Switch
2162361 Micro Switch Can you unplug the wires going to the W10408180 Water Inlet Valve? I am here to help you solve this problem if you like. If the wires going to the W10408180 Water Inlet Valve are disconnected and the water continues to flow the problem is most likely the W10408180 Water Inlet Valve being mechanically stuck open The 2162361 Micro Switch can be tested after we prove that the=> W10408180 Water Inlet Valve is not stuck open.

Temperature in fridge is 32 degrees

If the model number above your post is correct the your model has a 67003411 Auto Damper9_26_2012_4_50_40_pm.jpgand if the damper door is all the way open causing the fresh food compartment to be flooded with freezing cold air from the freezer side. It is not uncommon for thes dampers to fail due to a leak in the thermostat on the side of coiled up on the damper. Look at damper t confirm there is no frost keeping the damper door open and if you like I will post how to examine by taking the damper out and placing the damper thermostat coil and dipping it into a glass of ice and a little water. The damper door should shut if dipped into ice water. If not the damper will need to be replaced in order for fresh food section temperatures to be regulated. I will be here should you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

2002 gti sea doo wont turn over on the first try

if you have one of the kill cords that is round and it snaps onto a round button that has a silver dot in the center that when the kill lanyard is snapped into place makes a connection to the silver part inside of the kill lanyard itself. most the time its because it is still verifying that it is the right key. they are programed to match you CDI box/ignition module of your ski. this prevents theft. if you clean both the key and the button the key connects to with some rubbing alcohol to insure a good clean connection will most likely solve the problem. when you put the key on the ski you should hear a beep then wait 5 to 10 seconds before hitting the start stop button . that gives the ski time to recognize the key is in fact the correct key to the ski.. hope this helps

My nokia e51 dropped in sea salt water ten days ago, I dried it and opened its cover under the keyboard and cleaned it , it worked very well for a whole week, the problem is now the battery is not...


The sea salt water has made the charging port corrode. So get a screw driver, open the phone and bring out the charging port. The charging port is where you put our charger. Use methylated spirit to brush the charging port and the panel where the charging port is place.

Dry it for 30 minutes and couple the phone and it will start working fine.

Turning on a wet camera almost certainly will fry the circuits. Salt water will continue to corrode the electronics inside the camera. Start shopping and be careful next time.
