Nokia 1200 - Water - Test mode

My Nokia 1200 had a bit of water (not much, though) poured on it yesterday, and worked fine. However, its battery was low so it later turned off. When I got home and plugged in the charger, nothing happened at first. Several times a screen saying "Test Mode" appeared, but now my phone's all but dead. I can't even figure out how to open the casing to see if the circuit board needs cleaning.

    My 8 months old baby normally puts the port-end of my NOKIA 1200 phone into her mouth. Moisture from her mouth must have entered into the device. I opened it, removed the battery and dried it in the sun. It worked fine for some days and has since been showing me "TEST MODE" anytime I try to turn it on. Please help me !

    ugh i have the same issue. does this mean my battery is broken?

  • nikihiggs Dec 14, 2008

    I have the same problem. I wonder if I fried it by leaving the battery in too long. I have heard that water and batteries don't mix and will short out the phone.

I'm having the same problem as i type... a quick survey of forums showed that it happens most often with battery (hardware) compared to s/w problems.
next time ur fone meets water(loo) remove the batteries immediately and the screen guard asap, too. allow them to dry for some hours and u should be fine

I dropped my phone yesterday in water. I took it out quickly and dried it off. It works perfectly fine now but the navigation keys' back light won't turn off. When my phone is off the lights are still on...


There is still some water, perhaps corrosion now, inside the phone.

The best thing to have done is to pull the battery off as soon as it happened, and take it to retailer so that they can get it dried out before damage occurred.

Since your phone is now damaged, your recourse likely will be to replace the phone using insurance / oops protection, or start carrying an extra battery.

Nokia 1661 slight water damage - test mode


you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

Local mode in nokia1200


Hi
Nokia Phones usually gets into local mode when you are updating software or doing some software things on them , and main reason why they go into local mode is related with battery connectors because nokia Fbus cables connects through the back cover of the phone and those cables has some resistors to put the phone into local mode !
But the question is why your phone is getting into local mode ?
The problem i believe there must be some kind of water damage with your phone or with your battery !
Solution : You can easily check with another battery if you have one ! Otherwise you have to see some places those can repair your mobile phone

Best Regards

Test mode on nokia 1200


Test mode is used by engineers to repair particular problems with mobiles. It would appear you would need to take this phone to a mobile repair centre and get them to fix the s/w on it.

Displays test mode


To exit test mode, turn off phone.

Press *3001#12345#. Scroll up 1 to FIELD TEST (some phones may say NET MONITOR instead of FIELD TEST) and SELECT. Scroll to ENABLED and press OK. Turn phone off and then back on. Signal strength is the upper or lower left number. After test mode is enabled it will stay in your regular menu. To easily get in or out, press MENU, up 1 FIELD TEST and SELECT or OK. Dial 00 to get out and 01 to get back in.
