Question about Cell Phones

2 Answers

My phone was well charged, and i left it on the bathroom side for most of the day. I went to get it and it was fine then i went out side (into the rain) then got into the car. I went ot look at my phone and it had just turned its self of. When i tried to turn it on again it glowed but didn't show anything. Its a samsung toko lite and i have charged it and left it to dry over night incase it was wet...but no difference. What do i do? I need my phone!

My wife & I both have Samsung phones. Mine the 229,hers 239. Hers dropped in a puddle a couple months ago, & after almost 3 hours of taking it apart & drying it with cotton swabs and alcohol I got it working again. Well it happened again but this time I used a stuff called Silica. Lots of companies, when shipping goods, throw a small packet of silica into the box.You may recognize it as a little envelope about 1" or a white little cylinder about the same size. Most are filled with small tiny white beads in a little square flat bag. You may have seen this B4.
This is used to prevent any moisture from ruining the product during shipping. Most flower shops carry it. It's used to dry out flowers.You can try your local flower shop or get a small rechargeable tin.
I found some at this address on the net. .

What you do is put the silica container in a large closed ziploc bag. Remove the battery and sim card (if any) from your phone and put it in the bag with the silica. Put the bag in a warm dry place.
If you think about it,what would happen if you put the wet phone in a closed zip-lock bag all by itself in a warm spot? Condensation would appear on the bag. The same principle applies except the silica absorbs all the moisture in its surrounding area.
I hope this helps.

I have seen many phones get wet.I have seen many phones left out to dry overnight no matter how wet(little-lots).Not once have I seen one come back on.Sorry,just being honest.I would rather tell you that than have you try stuff that won't work anyway.
Good luck! Greg

Bought a new samsung wave 3 weeks ago went to charge it would not switch on again left battery out for 1full day it then powered up used it for another day or 2 went to charge it same problem.went back to...


Check the water damage indicators on the phone and battery. They are white stickers, and they will turn red if they have gotten damp or wet. Be aware that some phones can get water damaged from condensation, or being in a moist environment like a bathroom.

If the damage indicators are clear, they cannot prove that it has damage and you should take it back and talk to someone else.

Nokia e63 won't switch on or charge


hello,

this have nothing to do with your phone battery and the phone charger

from your statement what you need to do to fix up the problem is that you have to make a change of your phone charging port this is well the problem is from
the charging port bad

dole it will give a sign that it charging but the same time it will discharge the power and this can cause a damage on the battery bass on constant charging

what you need to do is that you are to make a change or replace the port with a better one

if you can not do the fix up your self then you will have to take it to a very good phone work shop around you to do the fixing then your phone will work fine again

thank you .

V3 dead but keypad flashing


I had exactly the same problem. After unsucessfully looking for a solution on the net I removed the simm chip and set it aside. The next day, I put it on PC usb charge and left it overnight. The next day, I powered it up and it worked. I turned it off and replaced the simm and it is now working fine. Go figure...
