Question about Samsung Jet S8000 Cell Phone
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.
Under warranty will not count on liquid damage if you take the battery out you will see a red dot that tells you water damage i have dried out some mobiles take out battery and sim leave on warm radiator couple of days then try again if still the same then it spares cost way too much to put right needs mother board ,and connectors hope this helps
