Question about Pantech PG-3600 Cellular Phone
I have a pantech duo red (c810) phone and the screen has shorted out due to water damage. The phone still works, but it seems that teh screen is dead. I would like to find a place to get the screen replaced..... My zip code is 72034. Thanks..
Try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .
it sounds crazy .
Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.
Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.
It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).
beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.
This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

I had the exact same problem. My son dropped his in the water - phone worked but the screen did not. I took it apart, dried it out, and it now works fine. I would suggest trying this first (if you are comfortable taking your phone apart) and seeing if it works before purchasing a screen. Soldering will be required if you decide to replace the screen, which can be purchased from http://www.rmslogisticslp.com. If you are not comfortable replacing the screen yourself (if it comes to that then you will need to find a shop - possibly RMS Logistics - have to ask).
Here are the steps I took. You will need a very tiny philips screw driver and someplace uncluttered that you can place the parts in an orderly fashion.
1. Take out the battery and the SIM card.
2. There is a cover around the camera lense that just snaps off. Remove this.
3. You will find 6 tiny screws (2 under the camera lense cover) that you will need to remove from the back of the phone. The back then unsnaps.
4. Carefully lift and unplug the circuit board.
5. First slider, there are 4 silver screws that hold this in place. Remove the 4 silver screws.
6. There are 4 screws in the corners of the piece, two of them covered. Remove the cover then the 4 screws.
7. You will see a circuit board and mic. The mic has sticky on it to hold it to the case. Carefully pry the mic from the case, taking care not to break the wires. Now lift the circuit board and carefully unplug it. Again, you will probably find sticky on the plug also.
7. There are 4 black screws holding the next slider in place - remove these screws.
8. Now you should see the LCD. There are 4 screws, two of them covered with a long sticky piece - remove them.
9. Check for moisture on all your parts and use a tshirt or a soft cloth to blot dry. It would not hurt to let it sit a bit to make sure it is dry.
10. Reassembly is just reverse of these steps.
If the phone does not work, then you may need to replace the LCD (although that may or may not be the problem - hard to say). If you decide to replace the LCD then you will have to follow steps 1 - 9 and when you get to the LCD, unsolder the speaker from the old LCD and solder it to the new LCD. Reassemble.
I hope this works for you.
