Wet Sony Ericsson w880i

Well..... unless you have the proper torx driver to take the unit apart, you are going to have to send it into Sony for repair.

If you do have the right driver and some patience, you should be able to take it apart CAREFULLY as there are several delicate components and ribbon cables that can be damaged very easily (And I do mean EASILY!).

You more than likely still have moisture trapped inside of the unit and it is causing the unit to short out. Also most likely the battery has been destroyed and WILL need to be replaced. Give it a shot if you want, otherwise I would suggest that you call Sony Ericsson Tech Support and get a tracking number and send it in for service. They might cut you a break if it is under warranty for the parts, but don't count on it.

Wish you best of luck.

Cannot switch W880i phone on ?

Your phone sounds like the software has crashed and it needs to be flashed (software upgrade) i do them at my shop and have fixed many se w880 with this fault, you will probably find some one to do it in your local unlocking shop or if your phone still has warranty send it back to se however this will take 2 weeks

Remove the battery from the back of the phone. Put it back and and restart the phone. When it turns on it should be back to normal.

If this still doesn;t help, give me a shout @ [email protected]

Se w880i - phone starts then wont show anything on screen

Ok, so whoever said you need the flash, shold flash their brains! Your backlights are burnt on the LCD - to change it costs about $80 because you need a new LCD screen at the same time.
