Question about Nokia 6682 Handheld

My Nokia 6682 was water damaged two months ago and would not power on since. I sent it to Wireless Solutions also known as Mobile Gallery in New York. They said that they had to order a flex (something to do with mother board in order ot retrieve phone memory from the Nokia 6682. Please explain and thank you.

    The repair tech said that it was a flex cable (to the motherboard?) that may help to retrieve phone memory and text message data. Is this the only solution, or are there other solutions to recover phone memory, note data ( in note file) and text message data from a water damaged phone that will not power on?

Hi Its unlikely that you would recover anything from the phone. But to fix a water damaged phone, what you need is a heat gun, that heats around 100'c (less than 200'f) even 50'c will do, too much will melt the phone and burn your fingers as well. Take the phone completely apart, open up any covers that open, and dry the phone with the heat gun, constantly moving it around / over the phone, dry all the parts and from both sides as well. You will need to have the parts of the phone separated, and preferably also the display removed from the mainboard, but that is optional. That will take around 10 minutes note that if you heat the display too much it will be ruined. this is repairable, I just fixed a phone that visited the toilet few days ago. but since its been two months already, I suspect that there might be some lasting damage.

Flex is the phones software. They will basically will try to reinstall the software of your phone,a nd try to pull the data saved on the phone.

Think of it buying a new copy of windows for your comptuer after it crashes and stops loading. Then installing it, so you can see what was on your comptuer..

If this was helpful please mark this fixya.

My samsung mobile had water damage 1 month ago.i bought it 6 months's display has worked for 20-25 days even after what is the best possible reliable solution?what will be the...

hello,when it got damaged by dropping into water,did you try to dry up the panel before putting it on,if not that would have affected the panel and also the battery,does the phone still power on,if no,you will have to get a battery from a store or a friend who uses same kind of phone to run the test in powering it on.since the screen does not display any longer i suspect the screen is faulty or the pones flex,so you will have to get a new one
the assumed estimated cost for both the screen and flex is about 30-50 dollars,
please kindly rate the solution if it's helpful,

take care.

Nokia 6682

hmm i think it is not a simple solution for your 6682 phone'
your phone IC driver for simcard socket is damage' your phone can't read your sim'
but first try to check all contacts in your phone sim socket'
and try it to turn on' and if the prob. is desame, your phone IC is damage, offline mode means insert sim....

if there is a cellphone re-pair shop nearby'
much better to bring your phone to a cellphone technician...

here is the pic.
