Question about Sony Ericsson W710i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Taking the phone apart.

I got corrosion damage on the charger port of my phone. The outside part is cleaned off (you can clean off the corrosion with achohl and a cotton ball). But I have to clean it off the part of the port that is inside the phone but i cant find a screwdriver small enough to open the phone p and do it. Does anyone know what screw driver I need to use? Or any place I can send it that can fix corrosion damage.

My galaxy 3 phone will not charge properly how do i fix it

Charging issues is a process of elimination. First the charger....many chargers will fit but not all that fit will work. A bluetooth charger will fit but would never charge your battery completely. Make sure you are using a proper charger. 2nd is the charging port on the phone. If the charger is loose it could be a bad port or the prongs on the charger are not it loose? Or if there is corrosion on the port. If corrosion, clean with alcohol and tooth brush. 3rd is the battery. If its swollen, then it's toast. A li-on battery will start to decrease after 400 to 500 charges.

Having problem with phones battery charger, won't charge sometimes, seems to be a problem with the charger port

Sometimes you will have to buy a new charger. If it is the phone, you may have to rig your battery to the charger itself.

I dropped my pantech ease in water for about two seconds. I removed the battery and put it in a container with uncooked rice for a day. I put the battery and sim card back in. The phone lights up when...

No... taking it apart .. unless you KNOW what you are doing is not smart.. take the battery out.. when the sun is out and there is NO chance of rain..sit it outside in a bowl of uncooked rice.. it will dry out.. you might have to clean the contact surfaces where the sim card goes.. With the battery OUT.. use a magnifying glass (this is a tiny area and a tedious undertaking) and a long sewing needle to lightly rub the contact surfaces to remove any corrosion.. make sure the contacts are clean and reinstall the sim card and battery,,,

The chager part to my phone is not working

Dear Sir\Ma,
Have you tried to change the charger to see whether the charger is the problem and if probably you have done that, then the problem is from the charging port. Two causes may cause this problem 1. Dust or Dirt Try to use a tissue with a pin to clean the charging port, after a well and proper cleaning try to insert the charger to see whether it works, if the phone is still not charging then the problem is that the charging port is damage. 2. Charging port is damage. Get a phone repairer in your area to replace the charging phone for you or go to the phone service center for a repair, they will definitely replace it for you.

I accidentally washed my LG VX5300, please help.

When electronics get wet, they MUST be taken apart as soon as possible and dried out. It probably has some wet areas inside that may have fried some connections. Water or corrosion by the water have short circuited something inside. There is still hope I hope to either take it apart and inspect and clean the corrosion off of all electronics or take it to an electronics shop and get them to do it.

Above the Date and time it says -Car Kit- I do not have a Car kit and I can not make any calls I just now banged the connector end against my desk and I think that fixed it. Why would my phone do...

YOWZA .. Car kit means the pins in the charging port are either liquid damaged or bent and touching eachother.

with a tooth brush and some NON Corrosive cleaning spray .. try cleaning out the port ... Canned air wouldn't be a bad idea either.

If the damage isn't bad you can usually take the phone out of car kit, but if liquid has corroded the board then im afraid it's time for a new phone.
