Re: sea water get in my n-gage
Hi Miss Lisa,
Remove the battery immediately.. Keep it out for a day or two. If you have a Water Pik, Spray out the memory card slot real good. You need to let it dry Dry Dry, absolutely no water or moisture in it beofer you put the battery back in.

Not sure what skill you have, but I would try to use some air from a tin called duster (air under pressure for electronic equipment) and blow into the memory slot. I also would check with a little flash light if something is in the memory slot, something like a little piece of paper. When looking into the card slot, you should be able to see a little golden switch on the site the lock notch of the memory card is. If you tried duster and it can't blow it out what is sitting in the slot, use a plastic tooth picker (no wooden, because it could leave little parts in there and the cure would be worse than the illness, and try to get the debris out. Please if you do not have technical skills, don't start, because the inside of a camera is very delicate. You easy can damage the inside bend repair.
Formatting won't make it any easier for any recovery program to find the photos, so I definitely wouldn't do it, but leave the card as it is until you've successfully recovered them. In my opinion, the best program to use is called PhotoRec and you can
find it here. It's free, released under the GNU licence. (Be sure to save any photos you recover to your computer... not to the card itself.) If that fails, then move on to try paid programs if you wish.
After you've recovered all the photos that you're going to get, only THEN would I format the card (in the camera please) in order to re-use it.
Hi, its a bit funny this one to do, but if you take the battery out, you will see what looks like a sim card holder like in a normal phone, how ever in the wave its for the memory card, the sim card slots into the black part at the top of of the phone, if you take the battery out then look where the memory card goes will if you go slightly to the left of this and look under the lip you will see a little slot the sim card puhes into this slot
if you click on this link and scroll down the page till you see the video box and press play it will show you exactly where the sim card goes, ignore that the sim dont look the same but thats just because they have cut it so you can fit 2 sim cards in how ever this is not worth doing as 1 sim can get stuck in the phone and leave you with a damaged un usable phone
In your case the
problem is not with the card but rather with your
camera's card reader. This is a rather hard problem to fix yourself but
here is what you can do.
Open the card slot of your camera and
peer inside with a sharp light or torch. You should see a little metal
tab or switch inside the card slot. This is the write protection
switch. Contrary to popular belief , the switch on the card does not
impact the operation of the card itself but rather tells the camera
that the card should be locked by depressing the little pin inside.
you put a protected card into a camera with no protection switch , the
card would operate normally.
, with time and repeated use , the switch will start to bend slightly
until it will no longer depress when a unlocked card is inserted.
toothpick or needle , slightly and very gently push this tab up a
little bit. (some camera's will require you to pull the tab down), This
will allow the switch to operate once again and should solve your
Perhaps it has a latch mechanism - you have to push it a bit deeper inside, and then it will latch into place. To remove, push it again deeper and it will pop out. If it's not the case, perhaps your socket is a bit worn out, and/or the card is thinner then usual - you can try to increase the friction by applying some self-stick paper or tape on top of your card to make it a little bit thicker.
The T42 can support up to 2 Gb of RAM.
The laptop comes with 512Mb of RAM under the keyboard and a spare memory slot on the bottom of the laptop.
To install 2Gb of RAM put 1Gb in the memory slot under the kerboard - need to remove the old RAM and put the other 1Gb in the memory on the bottom of the laptop
64-bit Double Data Rate (DDR) non-parity SDRAM memory
PC2700 at 333MHz
Two 200 pin SO-DIMM memory slots, one slot is pre-populated with 256MB or 512MB, leaving one socket available
Its a very easy one to fix... if you look at the memory card, you will see a little notch or a plastic catch (depends on the card) and all you have to do is to move it.
So if the notch/catch is UP at the top... just move it DOWN...or if its DOWN move it UP.
Its that easy to do.
The memory card is a bit like an old floppy disk...if you remember a floppy, it had a hole on its top right side with a slider under it. You moved the slider to close the hole if you wanted to write to the disk and you opened the hole if you did not want to be able to write to it.... its the same idea for memory cards.
Hope that helps you, so please leave a rating so I know if it has.
well.. you have to do this immidietly after the phone get in the water becase as soon as the solvent like water , chemical , etc start to make short circuit inside the phone so you must remove the battery immidietly. and its rear that the phone works properly after getting in the water but it won't get seriouly damage as you said you tried to keep the phone in the sun and it won't work this mean that you phone has some problem in the power section . look some one to repair for you and i am sure it won't cost you much
