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 holding....is 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.

My phone won't charge


Hello, when a phone does not charge, it means that the phone charger or the port at which the charger is inserted in the phone is faulty.

Might be due to dust or dirt. You can Clean charging port on the phone with a brush and alcohol to remove dirt.

After cleaning it,if still not charging, you can test charger with another phone to be sure if the charger is working. And if the charger works with another phone,that means the charging port on the phone is faulty and will need to replaced.

Take care.

Vx8300 stuck in car kit


I just ran into this problem myself (besides that fucked up white main screen i have). So after reading all these other solutions i played with the thing and found that its one of the right-most pins in the charging port. Probabily a pin touching the metal housing or another pin completes the same electrical circuit used to determine if a car kit is hooked in. I figured this one by shoving a knife through the opening to clear out any debris and every-swipe made the "car kit" banner dissappear. so check for pins touching something it shouldn't. ( i said F-it and ripped that pin out!)

Hope this helps more

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.

Car kit mode???


The Car Kit message is usually caused by corrosion in your charging port. Yes, holding * may revive the phone, but your best bet is to get some contact cleaner and a toothbrush and clean out your charging port.

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.
