1) put your phone in a vesel which has lot of tiny holes and put your mobile with battery removed and all panels and back panel removed into it.

2) the above suggested vessel or contration shouls be smaller now inset this vessel or contraption in a larger vessel , in which keep any hygroscopic salt like easily available calcium oxide crystals from your local chemist to absorb all the mosture.
note keep the salt and piece away as it absorbs moisture it will melt and become watery.

3) otherwise if u are a bit of techie open up the screws and piece with a screw driver till motherboard and clean with nail polish remover i.e, acetone chemically known or any ethyl achol i.e, a strong locally available liquor with a wade of cotton with anti static gloves , i.e, even medical gloves clean the piece and leave it under the fan for a day.

4) that should do the damage control and keep your fingers crossed , switch on the piece ONLY WHEN IT IS FULLY DRY.

when I recently forgot my password and I exceeded the number of attempts to unlock my phone it made me wait one minute before it would let me try again, the next try failed and it doubled the wait time, and doubled it each time thereafter. Could you have accidentally, maybe pocket dialing, locked it up?

I replaced the valve prematurely! Check the power to the valve FIRST! My had no...

Your washing machine will not fill up with water. You have checked the hoses, cleaned the screens, and still no water. Now what is next?


First make sure that you unplug the washer to prevent a shock. Then you will have to get to the valve. For some washer this can be done by an opening in the back panel. And for other you may have to remove the entire top of the washer to access the valve body.

Hopefully you can get there without removing the wiring, so that you can check to see if you are getting power to the valves. Once you can get to the valve body, then carefully get a meter on the connection to the coils, then plug in the washer and start the cycle where the water would normally flow. If you have power at the coil and the water does not flow then you know that the coil is bad or the valve is stuck. There are ways to clean the valves but usually a new valve body will be under $40.00 and it is not worth the mess and the possibility that the valve will soon get stuck again. If you find the problem there, just replace the valve, it is much easier.

If you are getting no power to your valve then you know to look back in the wiring further. You may have a bad switch in the timer. Follow the wires and trace the back to see where the power is stopping at. If you have power going to the timer and no power coming out then you have found your problem there.

Troubleshooting appliances is often just a matter of following the problem back to where it starts. Be patient and be very careful when working with electricity. Always make sure you have the appliance unplugged when you are not actually checking for voltage. Also be aware that some appliances have power on what you would think to be the neutral.

Its possible you had some air pockets in the cooling system from replacing the thermostat.
I would check the radiator cold from time to time to make sure it is full.

I was going to wash a load of towels and the washer filled up but I realized it wasn't enough water in it so before I could set the dial for more water, it stopped filling up so I set the dial for more...

Look around at outlets that are close by and make sure you didn't trip one of your GFCI breakers or plug in something to the same outlet and make sure you have power at the outlet where the washer is plugged into.

Try deleting SMS messages one by one, then, after all the SMS messages are deleted, restart your phone. This worked on my W230 for a while, then it didn`t work anymore. You will have problems in receiving messages as well, soon. I don`t understand why Motorola doesn`t announce a solution to this problem. Maybe they don`t care. That`s why my next mobile phone wasn`t a Moto :)
