Question about LG C1500 Cellular Phone
PERSISTANCE IS KEY!
My Palm Centro sat in a small puddle for a few seconds, and the only thing that was wrong was that it was, like every other poster here: Stuck in Headset mode. For 3 days I read posts / forums all over the place, getting similar ideas about inserting/pulling out the speaker cord rapidly / soft or hard resetting / pulling out at a certain point etc etc.
The real problem was that inside the 2.5mm jack there is a little microswitch that enables / disables the headset function, and if it gets stuck open- nothing can override it. --- Again --- 3 full days of twisting, pulling out, screwing with the jack and wasn't able to get anything out of it- was about to say screw it.
THE ANSWER!!! -- I read somewhere that using a Qtip could increase my chances of snagging the switch down; I doubled my odds and sprayed the **** out of it with WD-40 (with the fore-idea that the switch got all gunked up and is stuck in the open position)
--To test it out, start playing a music file or anything that should originally go through the main speaker (or just call your Voicemail)
-- I got the tip wet with the wd-40, and since I have a 2.5mm jackport (not even the qtip stick fits in the hole) I started twisting the cotton off of the stick into an elongated portion of the wet cotton; long enough to fit in the port. I stuck it in (twisting in the same fashion as the twisted cotton) and just started twisting. About a minute worth then I yanked out and-- WaLaa! MUSIC
Only thing that worked in 3 days; I figure the individual cotton strands snagged on the thing and pulled it down, although I contribute it finally moving to the WD-40.
GOOD LUCK =)
