Question about Samsung SCH-A990 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Keypad doesn't work except for the power button

My phone recently went through the wash. I let it out to dry for a while, and now it will turn on and recieve calls like normal except for the fact that none of the keys work. What can I do? Is it worth it to keep the phone?

There may be a way to fix this, but this will certainly void the warranty, and should only be attempted by someone familiar with electronics. It may be possible to restore the conductive material (graphite lubricant, as I understand it) between the button and the electronics. If you can find someone who knows something about this, it might be worth a try; you can't break it much more than it already is. If you've let it dry completely and it still doesn't work, the only way to fix it is going to involve opening it up.

Phone turns on fine but nothing happens pushing buttons except power.


If your phone has a keypad lock option, make sure that the keypad is not locked. Refer to the user manual to know how to unlock the keypad.

It is also possible that the keypad is defective and needs to be replaced.
