Question about LG Shine KE970 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

It won't turn on

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?

Dear braycroft

The whole process of assemblying/dissasembling the phone is shown at the link below. You will find it very usefull.

http://www.formymobile.co.uk/Dismantle/ke970disassembly.htm

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)

IMPORTANT:
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

Tip

SENSOR DRY IN SAMSUNG DRYERS


As a tech, I'm constantly fielding questions about loads of clothes not drying properly in the larger Samsung dryers--and this tip can be used for a lot of dryers with the sensor-dry feature. Sensor drying uses a pair of metal strips located on the filter holder or on the back wall in the dryer. When wet clothes rub against the strips, this sends a signal to the main board which tells the dryer to keep going. Unless large loads are used, the consumer should use "timed dry". This is because smaller loads won't hit the sensor strips often enough and cause the computer to count down too rapidly. Also, consumers should try to make sure like items are placed with like items( shirts with shirts, pants with pants, towels with towels, etc) Thick clothing(jeans, heavy sweatshirts, etc.) usually will have damp spots like pockets due to the moisture not being able to contact the sensor strips--the technology is not 100%. Also, if there are problems with the timer starting to count down too rapidly all the time, and dryer sheets are used, the sensor strips may be coated with a waxy layer. Use some super fine emory cloth to polish the coating off of the sensor strips. You very well might find that the problem is solved and not have to initiate a service call!

Installed a new graphic cards for Gateway DX4710-UB801A, it works for a day, but the next day, it wouldn't turn on, the power supply is not running.


Pull the new graphics card out to see if the power supply will start up, if no change, you will need a new power supply module.

Our 8 year old kenmore dryer won't do anything when you press the start button. We don't hear even a hum. It worked one day and then just wouldn't start the next day. We checked the fuse box...


Here is a good link for basic troubleshooting... But 10 to one the culprit is a thermal fuse or thermal cut off.... they are usually pretty cheap and easy to replace....

http://www.partselect.com/dryer+dryer-wont-start+repair.htm

One final note on these: if you find your thermal fuse\cut off (or element) open, before replacing it, be sure to check the airflow out your dryer's vent system. Even though these devices do 'wear out' with age, poor airflow's the #1 cause of failure of these devices, and if your vent's partially clogged, a new thermal won't last very long, but will do its job again, and leave you 'cold' (a new element won't last long if the vent's clogged, either).
