Question about Samsung SGH-A877 Impression Cell Phone

1 Answer

I went hiking in the White Mtns. of NH this weekend and in the pouring rain on Friday my backpack with my cell phone (unprotected of course) went for a swim down the flooded stream. The white square under the back cover is pinkish in the center. After a few days of drying out, I can text and use the touch pad if I want to dial out but can't end the call without taking the battery out and I can't turn it off. I called AT&T and they only repair their phones if you bought the insurance. I called Samsung and they charge $70.36 just to look at it. This phone was a lot and I don't want to put out another $200+. Is this a goner or is there hope? Thanks, Nancy

There is still little hope, you will need to power off the phone, remove the battery and sim card, put them in a secure place, turn the phone over, pull the front casing to remove it, get a torx 6 screw driver, unscrew all the screws on the front panel and dry the panel, most especially where the end key is, there is still little water or the part is still wet, that is why it is not contacting, let it dry with a little mid temperature, after this as been done, screw back all the screws and couple back your phone.

That should fix the problem, if you can not carry out all this, it is better you give it to someone that knows about phone to help or a phone repairer.

Take care.

I have a queen Frontage inflatable air mattress. It's slowly deflating, how can I find out where the leak is? Please help

Put just a little bit of air in it submerge it in water and squeeze it until you can see where the bubbles are coming from.

Alternatively you could pour soapy water on it and look for bubbles that way.
