    Thanks.
    I should have given more info.
    I bought the phone off Ebay about 9 months ago knowing it was water damaged. The seller hadn't tried a new battery - I thought that was an obvious thing to do, so I bought a new one.
    The phone is as described before - what could I try next?

  • show_thyself May 05, 2008

    Thanks again.
    No, it was sold as water damaged - I knew it didn't work.

    Is it worth spraying with WD 40? If so, where do I spray?

    Anything else I can try?

I would suggest to open it and use a hair dryer to dry completely.
There might be some water still in the phone circuitry and if that is the case, it will not power up.

    Did the phone worked when you bought it?

  • Jaime Hernandez May 05, 2008

    If the phone was expose to water and some might got into the circuitry and connectors and it was not dry properly; by now those connections around the LCD display might be oxidize and the phone may be not fixable.

    WD 40 will not do any good to the phone.

    If you open the phone, look for the place where the front display is connected using a flex cable and unplug it, once unplug you can use rubbing alcohol to clean the contacts and see if that might work.

    If that does not work, the phone is damage and might only work if you can get another broken phone(same model) and swap the display.

Those screens do NOT like water, and it's likely that the water infiltrated the membrane, and shorted out the drive to it. happens to those sort of devices..you know..time for a new one, misfortunately

My htc incredible s won't charge, I've tried


It sounds like the charging port on your phone is broken. This could have happened a number of ways. Either by dropping your phone, putting the charger in wrong, or taking it out wrong. If you call HTC(866-449-8358) and it is still under warranty they will probably fix it for free as long as it doesn't have any water damage(http://www.ehow.com/how_4479971_check-cell-phone-water-damage.html). Otherwise you could also get a new phone.

EnV touch phone won't turn on. Charged overnight, went to unplug phone and it would not turn on. Screen stayed on charging screen What to do?


Unplug the battery. Leave it for half an hour. Put the battery back in and then try to on it. If it still won't on, try to change the battery to a new one. If it still doesn't work, that means your phone power chip has been damaged.

Battery shows fully charged, stays on for 3 minutes and freezes.


I've had this happen. Try a soft reset, if that doesn't fix it - try a hard reset. If it still does this, you will need to replace the battery. It may either be a problem with the battery itself or the power regulation circuit that is built into the battery. Either way, replace the battery and it should fix it. Word of warning though, some aftermarket chargers actually reverse-charge the battery - I had a USB charge/data cradle that did this and I still have short-lived battery life on my new E2 battery if I use that cradle. I just stopped using it because it kills my E2.

Battery charge is finished very soon without even using it( in about 5 hours)


The proper way of charging the battery on your phone is by waiting for your phone to indicate that it's running out of powe but not completelyr, if you frequently charge your phone even if it's not yet necessary(battery life indicator show half-way) the ability of the battery to store power will deminished hence the battery life is shorter. Last resort would be trying another battery unit to test if it's your battery of your phone that's causing the unsual battery drain.

Or you can try the following steps on conserving your phones battery life;

  • Turn off your Infrared and BlueTooth when not in use. Even when they are not in use, they do keep drawing power looking for signals.
  • Switch off the vibration alerts. Vibration causes a lot of power usage thereby making battery drain fast.
  • Re-adjust your screen brightness to around 50%. Screen power is another silent killer.
  • Usually, presetted Backlight durations are of pretty high order, this can be readjusted to get more from your battery. Try reducing the Backlight duration.
  • Often we don’t understand that playing games requires Light, Sounds and Shakes. This in turn leads to tripling of battery drainage.
  • Lower Ringing and other message sounds. This too helps saving a lot of battery.
  • Finally, do charge your battery before it gets drained fully. This enhances battery life.

K800i PHONE DEAD


Try this, for I had the same several times.step 1) Take out the battery completely and bring it back in again. Turn the phone on and if it still doesn't work it might be the case that the phone needs to be charged first. do step 1 again but don't turn the phone on but charge it for about 1 hour and check it again.Good luck, Rebecca

Phone will not charge up


Common problem, I've had countless charging problems with Sony-Ericsson.
Is this USB or Mains charger? Mains charger seems to be more effective. I had a problem with my K800i where it ran-out of battery completely, then when I charged it, the screen would stay white. I would have to keep it there for an hour or so, then take it off, turn it on, then charge it again and it would charge fine.
Another problem I had was with a K750i - the phone would state it was charging, but when you took it off charge, the battery would be low. I think the battery was just old in that one. A new one may have sorted it. I took it to my nearest operator store and they sent it off for repair. It took around 2 weeks and it still wasn't fixed, so I got a W810i as a kind of 'Sorry your phone sucks' free replacement.

So, how old is the phone? the battery may need replacing with new, they're around £10.
You may be able to send it off for repair.
Try a different charger from a friend or local store - just ask!
Try the method I explained for my K800i.

Problem with new mobile


If you can try another fully charged battery, in your phone and it works then it might be a dodgy battery problem. leave the phone off to charge the battery for 10 hours and see if its better.
