Question about Sony Ericsson K800i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Dropped phone in water

My phone was dropped in a small amount of water - it looked like the circuits went out as lights flashed and then it was dead. I removed battery, etc. and am drying it out hoping for it to work within a few days. Is there hope? And if not, is there any place I can get a second hand version? Thanks!

Your doing the right thing by removing your battery. From my experience Sony Ericsson units don't do well when liquid damaged. If the unit was recently damaged (24 hours) try to get it very hot... like hot sun or place it in the plate warmer of an oven.
If this doesn't work try ebay for an unlocked unit.

My iphone 4s went completely blank black screen and it is not dead or powered off. i can hear it if it rings and it vibrates aswell. what can harm this to happen? is it old age?it is 5 years old.


water will have an affect on it if it has not been dried out properly the screen controller chip that is on the logic board will get damaged, =, they are not waterproof, you will need another logic board to repair this fault., can also damage the battery and the screen being in water for any amount of time.

My iPhone is dead...need a replacement


First thing to do is check the water indicator.

Look directly down the headphone socket on the iphone, using a light you should see a white marker (or red if it's water damaged)

If it's still white take it back to apple and get a new one (if it's still under warranty.)

If it's red and you need a new one, the options are:

Ebay or get a pay as you go iPhone with no contract and unlock it (expensive but no contract)

Fell in the sea and the phone went dead


you will have to get a new phone.
the sea water inside your phone will corrode and damage everything.
you can try placing the phone in a baggie with uncooked white rice and seal it for about a week, then replace the battery with a new one and see if it works.
thats your only option besides getting a new phone.

Display screen is backwards


Sounds like the LCD is missing a signal getting to it. One of the signal lines is either damaged, possibly still has a small amount of liquid on it and is getting a bunch of resistance it shouldn't be.

Open the phone up, and let it sit and dry fully for a few days.

You could always try dropping it back into the rye & coke, it seemed to prefer that to water =0)

Once you drop a phone in water if the battery is plugged in it will short circuit all the links that the water touches. It is quite possible that it is only the screen not working. But my guess is that the phone is a goner. You may want to search ebay or craigslist for a replacement as your model of phone will have a water damage indicator installed.

V3 dead but keypad flashing


I had exactly the same problem. After unsucessfully looking for a solution on the net I removed the simm chip and set it aside. The next day, I put it on PC usb charge and left it overnight. The next day, I powered it up and it worked. I turned it off and replaced the simm and it is now working fine. Go figure...
