    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

Buttons don't make any sound but can hear dial tone, speaker phone doesn't work, phone dies fairly quickly - would this all be caused by bad battery and what is the life of battery in a Panasonic cordless...


First off, try changeing from tone dial to pulse dial and try calling out. If that does'nt work, touch bad is probly bad. As far as the speaker phone it does not work off battery's it works from the main base which is powered from the A/C. And for the battery life, when you have a cordless phone you have to build the life to the battery, what I mean is : first time you charge it for 12-14 hours, after that use the phone and do not put it back into cradle, the battery will hold a charge for 8 hrs, if you use it for 30 mins and put back on cradle untill next use, use another 30 min and continue doing this the battery will build its life to 30 min and always die after 30 min, try to get into leaveing off cradle all day and charge while you sleep and keep off cradle all day.

I've had the same problem with my Uniden DECT 6.0
You need to buy a new battery. Almost every electronics store that sells phones should have 'em

Hope it helps!

Uniden cordless phone not working


Yr battery is probably Shot. With these type of batteries they can fall over if they go below 25% charge for a length of time. The charger is not charging even though it says it is. If the phone is not to old then get a new battery and try again. cheers

V tech dect 6.0...both my handsets die out when i go to use the speakerphone..Is it time to replace the batteries as I've had these phones for over two years now?


Try to fully charge them first and check for how long do they keep charge. But, yes, for some batteries 250-300 recharge cycles is a life span.

W810i. phone is turning on but the screen stays blank.


you have either a connection problem where they ribbon connects with main circut board or your have some how damag.ed your screen this can be caused by dropping the phone water damage.
but before rushing and purchasing a new screen try software update as this can alliviate the problem sometimes. just goto the sony ericcsson site and download the pcsuite and install it. within the pcsuite you will get the option to update the software choose this and follow instructs. please note your battery must be fully charged or you will destroy/currupt the sofware if it dies part way through the process. if this fails then itstime for a new a screen we sell on ebay as a power seller 4onesexpress-07802458019 and will send detailed instrucions for changing screen

Hello -need help with phone


It's not charging the battery, clean the contacts on the base, put it on another base to see if it says CHARGING.

Verify that you have power to the base.

Battery might be bad. Try it in another handset.

Charge/in use light


Typically the charge light will stay on as long as the phone is on the charger. After 16hrs, the battery should be fully charged. Leaving it on the charger constantly can actually overcharge the battery, shorening it's life. The best thing to do is use it until it tells you the battery is getting low, then charge it uninterrupted for about 8-12 hrs. Of course, that's ideal and can't always be done, but the more you can do that, the better.

Hope that helps, and please rate my answer, good OR bad.

Good luck!
