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

Local mode in nokia1200

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

The 1-4 cup setting actually loops the water through the heating element twice. It's a good wrokaround for people who like extremely hot coffee, but not for iced coffee fans like me.

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.

Most likely it is your tank heater, but look on the top of the tank heater, because sometimes the wire will burn off the top of the element
