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?
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.

LCD and plasma screens have a anti-glare coating or anti-reflective
coating. This is so any bright light doesn't reflect and wash out the
picture. It does help but it also makes cleaning the screen a bit of a
As this is a coating on glass it is actually possible to clean t off by
using the wrong cleaner. There are great glass cleaners out there but
most are chemically based and too aggressive. In other
words they attack the coating.
So what do you use? Paper towels, a drop of dish washing or
liquid soap and water. And you need to use a bit of a technique or you
will see smears or smudges on the screen.
You need to get two sheets of paper towels. One is your dry wipe. Wet
one with water. Then add a drop of liquid soap or detergent. Give it a
couple of gentle squeezes to distribute the soap. Then give it a bit
harder one to get rid of excess water. Depending on the coating you may
want a second piece that has only water and just damp not wet.
Now we clean the screen. First take the soapy towel and wipe down the
screen getting it wet. You don't want running water just enough to wet
the screen. If you have the soap right you will just see the odd bubble.
Once you have the screen wet, wait about 30 seconds and now scrub it
using the soapy towel with a circular motion. If there is
anything on the screen it should come off. If something is stubborn just
keep scrubbing it or use a fingernail to scratch it off and wipe with
the soapy after.
Now we need to get the soap off. If the screen dries and has streaks you
may need to use the wet un-soaped towel to wipe/rinse of
the soap before drying. To dry the screen we want to use the dry towel
and use large circular motions. Go over it once and turn it
over so the dry side is being used. Keep using those big round motions
and at the same time ease up of how hard you push the towel. The idea is
to have little pressure on the towel as you finish. That's
the trick to getting it streak free.
This takes a minute to do but lets you safely clean your display without
damaging the coatings. It also works on any glass surface.
Just returned from the parts store, they had sold out of drive belts for the auger drive on snow throwers... figured I could help out here;
Wet snow is heavy, duh right? Before you run your snow thrower disconnect the spark plug, for safety. Check the chute, and sand any loose paint rust etc. you want a smooth chute.. paint if needed, let dry 24 hours before use, spray with silicon lube spray, this will loessen the stress on your auger belt and hopefully keep your machine running all season. Good luck!
wow, next time wipe it down with clorox disinfecting wipes they are like a $1.50, if it was recently wet, you could dry using a blowdryer, i dropped my iphone in the snow once and had to do use a blowdryer
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.
once it is coroded there is a chance to clean it but guarantees are not givin this works :
take a stick with two peaces of paper (also used to clean your ears , sorry don't know the english word) put a little (max 2 drops ) of pure alcohol on one side, silide open the battry component , go inside with the wet side first , do not press to hard and go up and down the battery component holder. once wet , take the other (dry side) to clean the battery component
repeat steps until it looks good, than leave it a dry place (normal room temperature) for 24 hrs / 48 hrs , check if the unit is dry after 24 hrs, if so insert batteries like GP / VARTA etc do NOT use cheap cells and i recommend buy a set of 2700 - 2950 Mah NIMH accu''s witch powercharger and hopefully you have a working camera with power
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.
