Question about Sony Ericsson W850i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Water damage i have this w850i and i accidentaly dropped it in the sink, i was currently talking to someone when it dropped. i quickly removed the battery. the lithium paper already turned red, both on the phone and in the battery. i dried it up as fast as i can. i immediately bought the phone to the sony ericsson repair shop, but they said my phone is already beyond repair due to the corroded motherboard. is there anything else that i can do to revive my phone? that phone is really special for me... i dont want to give it up just like that...

    Same thing happened to me the same day! Got it out within seconds, turned it off, stripped out battery, 2gb memory stick & SIM. Dried it with kitchen towels then atop a radiator which cured the condensation behind the screen too.

    Several people I know have done this and got away without any damage. Mine now has a keypad logic fault that effects 7 and some others inc the ok select. Press certain buttons - it does something else etc.

    Is this worth fixing? Any help on this will be gratefully received :-)

1) Sell it on eBay to help cover the cost of a new iPod, you'll probably be able to get 50-70 dollars for it.

My nokia 7610 phone has been dropped in water


You should detached quickly its battery first. It is to prevent further damage to your unit. And dont try to power it on. Then bring your unit to a cellphone shop to have it dry and clean it for you, they will sometime automatically charge for water damage repair.

For minor damage only battery pack will get damaged. Luckily only cleaning and drying will get it running.

My mobile sony ericsoon W850i no open only flash


I think that your sony ericcson has been dropped somewhere or it is water damaged, if its a white screen which keeps flashing then its overheated or water damaged, it may need a new battery or will be about £30 GBP to fix. If this helps then please vote me!

Thanks

They are no doubt stuck on to the heat sink because the thermal grease which helps to conduct the heat out of the module drys out over time and acts like glue. Just whack on it good or pry it off. Make sure you don't gouge the heat sink though and you will want to scrape off the old grease and put on some new grease under the new modules and tighten them down till the grease squeezes out underneath.
Hope Ya Fix it!

Hi Aky,
The best thing to do is to take the battery out leave it to dry and your phone do not try to charge the phone for a few days that should solve the problem. if not the water has gone into the liguid lcd screen.and the lcd screen need to be replace.

Some buttons on the keypad won't work


I strongly recommend consulting the supplier, he/she is bound to know what to do, they may also give you a new handset!!, by the way may i comment on the good phone!!, but yeah, if they are unable to help, take it to a certified phone shop/dealer, they will know what to do!! BUT DO NOT mess around with it yourself!!, this could void your warranty and may definitely do more harm than good! is there any water damage, i have researched and found that this problem happens A LOT when there is water damage on the phone, check the moisture on the battery, there should be a moisture detector on the top of the phone, if this is pink, than it has been affected by water damage, ive also found someone who used SEUS to flash his phone, he said that the buttons were stuck and he had the same problem as you, when he flashed it he said that the phone had restored itself! i recommend trying it yourself BUT BEWARE that you can void your warranty if you do so!! but definitely contact the owner first!

hope this helps and keep ion touch!

Dropped it into sink


was there water in the sink at the time?
if so check the connections on the base if there is green corrosion on it the the damage is done you will have to find someone who will repair water damaged phones.
If no water and just the drop that caused the prob then try removing the battery while the phone is still turned on this may shock it back
