Question about Nokia 6300 Cellular Phone
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 ...
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.
