Question about Cell Phones

2 Answers

My Phone got wet, and the screen is starting to get dimmer.

I was just washing my hands, and Ericsson W580 was on the counter. It accidentally got splashed with water. I remember when i picked it up, there was water all over the screen. I wiped it dry with a towel and my shirt, but now it looks like there's water inside of my screen. I tried shaking it out... and it seems to be moving around because the screen is getting dimmer. Which is the opposite of what I want. You can see the light shining though and making shadows in my screen from the water. I'm scared this is going to cause even worse problems in the future. Everything seems to be operating perfectly. Is there anyway I can fix this and remove the water from my screen? Should i attempt taking it apart? I'm scared that I'll make problems worse. Please, help!

You're right in thinking it will cause you worse problems in the future. However if you take all the removable parts off, then give the phone a good 'shake dry' and try pushing down slightly on the screen to push out the water, then use an hair dryer on low heat to dry it, you might be lucky and save your phone from death.
Unfortunatly water and electricity (AC/DC) don't go well together.
Good luck.

Sony ericsson W580 cell phone


More than likely you will need to replace the LCD screen. The backlight may have burned out making it blank or it the LCD connector may have come loose.

A new LCD screen runs about 15 dollars shipped from ebay.

The W580i LCD is easy, easy to replace. Probably one of the easiest I have ever done.

Check out the following link for instructions on replacing the LCD display and links to buy the screen.
