Question about LG Shine KE970 Cellular Phone
I'm not sure if it got damp whilst in my coat pocket but it worked ok for the whole of the next day but wouldn't turn on the day after. can you undo the four little screws and have a look inside to see whether it got damp and is it easy to put back together?
The whole process of assemblying/dissasembling the phone is shown at the link below. You will find it very usefull.
You should find a white sticker within the phone. If it has turned red then moisture has indeed penetrated the phone. The service centers at this point will probably deny warranty repair. (If you have a warranty that is valid please go to them first)
The only thing you can do is to inspect the phone for moisture and then put it on a baking tray and do a drying cycle of 2-4 hours at max 60-65 degrees celcius. Maybe this will bring your phone back to life. (If moisture is only causing a short now and has not cause total failure on IC's)
By any means baking an electronic device can be dangerous so be carefull. It is standard practise for the engineering world but not for the amateur.
I wont be held responsible for any problems you may inflict to the device.
Regards and good luck
