Question about Samsung Jet S8000 Cell Phone

2 Answers

Samsung Jet Cell Phone is "dead"

The phone got wet when I was caught in the rain yesterday. dried it off OK, opened it up and found no visible water ingress. Phone was not working other than showing the main screensaver. The battery indicated flat so I put it on charge overnight. This morning the battery showed one bar less than full charge. I took it off charge and tried to activate it but it went onto a red & blue screen telling me it was "in Download Mode" I could do nothing to change this. Eventually I removed the battery, and replaced it after 5 minutes. Phone then switched ON with the CALL-END button, but went immediately to "Download Mode" Tried to access it via PC Studio, but only managed to upload the firmware upgrade. Same problem exists after the upload. I put the phoner back on charge for three hours, and it is now warm but DEAD...
It is still under warranty.
Help, please.

    When charging the battery, the phone and battery get warm, which never happened before now. The battery voltage is only 3V which I am sure is considered to be FLAT. However, I have no other method of charging the battery than via the phone and its charger. Is there a HARD RESET button on this device?
    Help gratefully accepted...

My samsung smooth got wet i let it dry but will not turn on

Wet Cell Phone
Immediately remove the phone from the water,turn off the cell phone remove the battery and SIM card. When you have driedthe cell phone by putting in a warm sunny place for several days or in front ofa warm fan heater for several hours then reassemble the phone. Hopefully itwill work properly but if does not work then it is faulty and you need a newcell phone.

Moisture from hot tub got under the touch screen of my cell phone, and now it's not responsive to touch. Is there anything I can do?

When most cell phones get wet or aquire moisture the circuit boards on the inside rust as they dry out so if the phone is insured I woudl just suggest replacing it because the rust on the inside will continue to affect the phone even after it is dried out. Depending on who your carrier is you maybe able to have a tech open up the phone and clean the circuit board with some solution. This is not something you should attempt your self because it would void any warrenity remaining on your phone. If you have a warrenity and you phone is not visibly wet and all your indicator on your phone are still negative for water damage (stickers located on or around your battery to show that your phone has water or moisture damage) then just take it in for a replacement but, leave out the part about moisture just tell them the touch screen is not responding

My phone is damp on the inside

Remove the battery and leave the phone under a vent overnight, or try using a hairdryer. Either should remove the excess moisture.
