Hello evans3958,

Well, most electronic circuits can be repaired providing that it is affordable to you and that replacement components are available. You can contact cell phone repair shops on the internet. I do not have experience with their success rate or the fees involved, but most of them offer free estimates.

I've been able to revive many phones that "went swiming" without troubleshooting or component replacement but, I haven't been successful with phones that got chemicals like detergent/softener in them. If you feel inclined to give it a try yourself, I'll let you in on one of my tricks to try to revive them (no guarantees, just a good try) let me know.

In the mean time, remove the batteries out of the phones until some repair action is done on them. This will avoid any further damage to the circuits and your wallet!!

Hope this helps you.

I have alot of particles in the bottom of my washer at the end of the cycle.. if i run another cycle with no clothes they stay in the bottom of the washer..appears to be dirt, leaves..etc

Hello, Suzanne -

So someone, whose clothes are washed in your machine, picks up "crud" on his or her clothes. (My dad used to collect "crud" in his pants cuffs and pants pockets, so my mom would make sure she emptied the pockets and cuffs over a wastebasket before putting his clothes in the washing machine.)

First, make sure pockets, cuffs, and whatever else clothing parts might collect "crud" are emptied over a wastebasket prior to placing in the washing machine.

"Crud" like pet hair or disintegrated facial tissue left in a pocket may still be left over in a washing machine tub after clothes are removed. I use a wet sponge to wipe out the washing machine tub when ever I see left over "crud."

Newer washing machines have lint traps, which are not as easy to access as those on clothes dryers. The washing machine lint trap may need cleaning out.

Best wishes.

Norstsar M7208 Corded phone cannot use handsfree feature

Your problem is in the phone system programming. I would need to know how old your main cabinet is in order to tell you how to fix it. On most Nortel systems you use "Feature Key" **266344 (Feature **CONFIG) . You will need to program from a M7310 phone because you need the 3 soft keys under the display which the M7208 does not have. The top 4 keys on the phone are used for programming (2 LEFT & 2 RIGHT) . I'm referring to the 2 vertical rows of keys (5 LEFT & 5 RIGHT). Upper left key is up a menu, upper right key is SELECT, lower left is BACK, and the lower right is NEXT. I believe you need to find the CAPABILITIES menu for your station/extension and use the next button to look for the handsfree setting use the key under the display to change it. The manuals are at

My Rumor went through the wash cycle in my pants pocket. The button lights on the face of the phone and the slide out keyboard. The display does not do anything but the side lights on the display do come...

You need to try Silica Gel Packets to dry out your phone. There was a good article on that explains how to dry a wet cell phone, iPods, or any electronics.

You need to place your cell phone in a zip lock bag with Silica Gel Packets. Silica Gel will remove all the moisture from the phone and its components, something air drying will not do!

Just Google "Silica Gel Packets" and you will find several companies selling these products. There is also a web site called: that has them.

Cell Phone was washed in the washing machine

You are far better off buying a new phone. Put the old one on Craigs list - looking for a repair person - for this problem and or say you want to sell it out right and take that as a down payment.

I also have a Sony Ericsson K850I and dropped in the water.

you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried
