Question about Sanyo SCP-3100 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

I dropped it in the snow.

It got wet. this is bad, i know. for a while, i just let it dry. Once it was dry, only the front screen would work. NOW -24 hours later - BOTH screens work but it keeps restarting itself. Not even going through a shut down... just restart-restart-restart.

do I have to take it in? Is there something I can do to fix it here?

Re: i dropped it in the snow.

Most likely it's shot! But try taking out the battery and making sure it's completely dry inside. The only other suggestion is to take it to a repair shop like Sprints' and see if they can fix it...or replace it.

My daughter spilled juice on her cell phone, it can receive calls but she cant answer them because the touch screen will not work

You should never turn on any electronics that are wet.
  • Remove the battery
  • Place phone in a bag of rice
  • let it sit for 24/48 hours
  • Replace battery

Once it has dried out from the rice, you should be good to go, if you have not damaged it by powering it up while it was wet

I hope this helps

Dropped phone in puddle only screen is broken PLEASE HELP MEE!!!!

Unfortunately, I would suggest you not trying to fix this. The reason is once water gets inside, any of the parts that got wet will eventually corrode. It might work a day, a week, I actually had my phone work 2 months, then it will stop. You could replace the screen and have it work right away, but nobody could gaurantee that it will continue.

I got it wet!!

The first thing is to know if the phone dropped in salted or fresh water. If was in salted water, forget it, you let it pass so much time, but if was fresh water, try to open the phone ( get a Torx 6 or 8 screwdriver in home depot) and use pure alcohol with and old toothbrush and clean the mineral deposited on the circuits, gentle brush it and let it dry, then reasemble the phone a it will work perfect

There is a good chance that the phone will work once dried...but make sure it is totally dry (try to absord all water ad give it a few days to dry out) before attempting to turn on. If you take it part and dry out the parts...even better.

LG VX6100 - Won't stop vibrating

my phone barely got wet at all but wont stop viberating either.everthing else works fine. i set it on a table to go on the computer and the viberating just stopped and i dont know why but right after that it just started viberating again. i got some tips from some other people that didnt work 4 me but it might work 4 u. u could try doing a master reset which just taking out the battery when the phone is on and it resets or u can try blowing on the battery in case it somehow got some dust on it.

Anytime anything electronic gets wet, the first thing to do is remove the battery, electricity and water don't mix, it'll corrode the circuits inside, then let the gadget dry out completely, putting it somewhere warm is good, it might take a few days, if you can get your hands on some fresh dessicant packs (you know, those little "do not eat" packets you get in electronics and cameras and such now and then) they might help dry out the phone if you put them and it in a ziplock bag for a couple days.

if the circuits inside aren't corroded from having electricity on while wet, then the phone may be fine after it's dried out.

good luck.
