Your screen needs to be replaced... there is no easier way. you can purchase a cheap used phone off ebay and get the screen and replace it.

Tea got spilt on it. It worked for a few min. then screen dark and won't light up. Everything else works. What do I need to replace?


Karen...

Even "clear" Water left with electricity will continue to cause damage... It must be dried before power is restored.

There is an immediate and urgent need to get ALL the power removed from any ELECTRICAL device that has moisture exposure.

If it was tea with milk... (mine was coffee with cream & sugar... full cup turned over on my DELL PC in 2002)...

I learned right there how to pull the battery... pulled the hard drive
rinsed it all the rest with clean water... and again with 90% rubbing alcohol... gently blew everything dry with compressed air and let it all dry for several days... turning parts over each day.

Three days later I reassembled it all back together
and it is STILL running TODAY.

Hope this helps!!

Hi first I would like to thank you inadvance your technical support to me. the problem is that the screen is not functioning it stayes dark.


I assume that you can at least see the display like texts or images on the screen even if it's dark. There four things which can cause this, first the display cable (flex cable), second the display connectors on the display or on the board of the mobile/phone,third is display ic and the fourth is the display itself.

To troubleshoot this, it's a must to open apart the set, you'll need appropriate screw drivers and spares like display and flex cable.

Open the case, disconnect the terminals of the display flex cable from both the display and from the board, do some cleaning with alcohol/spirit/ipa solution with a soft brush, and again reconnect them after it's dried. If this isn't successful, go to next step.

Next replace another cable (display) and check if you can see the light on the screen or not. Again there's no light? Next step...

Connect the other display (should be a working display of the same model and type). If the problem goes, then your solution is replacing the display. If not the display ic which only professionals and trained technicians can handle.
Hope this helps.

Good luck.


Thanks for using FixYa.

I dropped my phone in tea, the phone still works but you cannot see anything on the display screen. Is there something I can do to fix it. Sony Ericsson Walkman W350a.


Short answer: No. Long answer: Your phone has water damage. Warranty is void if your phone has water damage. Since you KNOW you've dropped it in tea, you should consider it a lost cause and move on. For others - if you do something similar (dropped in water): Immediately turn it off. Take the battery out, then proceed to completely dismantle the whole phone. I have in the past used kleenex paper to tuck into places I can't dismantle, to get the water out, but they usually say to dismantle it, then let it completely air dry. It may take a week. If it, after it's completely dry, still works, then maybe you got lucky, and maybe it'll start acting up in a while, problem by problem as the electronics corrode inside the phone. I have heard of phones surviving water damage with only minor problems, but it's rare.

Dropped my Sanyo Katana cell in a cup of soda!!


probably too late but he first thing to don in that sit. is rinse the phone in a 75/25 solution of alcohol and water. then open up as you did and let it dry. if you can see water on the display screen your probably out of luck but keep it warm and dry for a few days and see what happens.
