Hi. I found you on the Fix Ya tech support page. We have a LG Trax phone from AT&T and my daughter got it wet -- not submerged -- just wet. Now it tells us there is a fatal error on it and to reset it. AT&T say they can't reset it and LG tells us that they can't reset it but AT&T can. The "dot" under the battery is pink and AT&T claim that the phone has to be replaced due to water damage, which I think is crazy! I have washed more phones than I can count and ALL of them have worked after we dried them out. Can anyone help? Do you know how to reset this phone? We have only had this phone for 4 months.

The first step is to leave your phone alone! DO NOT try to turn your wet
cell phone on. Turning on your wet phone can permanently damage the
Next step is find a bag of rice, preferably white. White rice can
absorbs the most water. Ensure that you have enough bag of rice to
completely submerge your wet cell phone.
Now, place your wet cell phone into the bag of rice. Place the phone in
the middle of the bag so that you can no longer see your wet cell phone.
Next, place your bag of rice in a dry and warm place. I left my bag of
rice in the back of my car on a hot day.
Leave your bag of rice to sit for several hours. I left my bag of rice
in the back of my car for 8 hours. After time has elapsed, you can
finally pull out your cell phone and try to turn on your phone.
you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried
If the phone was still on while it got submerged, then you may be out of luck. Had it been off when it was submerged, using the rice trick might have worked. I would try removing the battery, and drying it out some more, but the damage may have already been done. Sorry!
no i didn't.
but you guys ****.
stop trying to sell me your service and fix my problem already.
I'm sure you can make money just off the advertising (word of mouth) alone.
thanks, but no thanks.
i'll figure it out by myself.
Did you ever get an answer for this? I am considering this phone, and am keenly interested in the answer to #1. I am also very curious about syncing the address book and calendar to my PC. Have you done that successfully? thanks
I recently bought a similar adapter for my trax and had the same problem. Taking the plastic cover off of the adapter, I found the following on the back of the 18 pin connecter: a jumper from pin1 to pin 11, a jumper from pin 9 to pin 10. audio l and r wires to pins 14 and 15, common audio wire to pin 18 and unconnected pin at pin17. By accident, I found that if the unconnected pin 17 bent over to touch the wire to pin 14, the headphones started working. So, solder a wire to connect pin 14 to 17 reinsert these pins into the correct slots and you have a working adapter.
