Question about Samsung SCH-u340 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Left colum of buttons wont' work

Ok so heres my problem. i was an idiot the other day and got my phone wet. I pulled the battery out and let it dry before i put the battery back in and turned it on again. and it seems to be working ok. except that my left colum of buttons isn't working, the menue, send, 1, 4,7, and *.

my send button acts as my menue button, my 1, 4, and 7 dont really do anything, they will take you to my out going calls list.

then when i'm texting, it i drag my finger down the colum so that i hit like 2 or 3 buttons really fast i can get the letter i need in t9. but outside of that i cant.

any ideas?

There may still be some water or moisture under the keypad. The water may leave some conductive residue. The phone should be taken apart and properly cleaned and dried. It is also possible there there may be water damage and parts will have to be changed.
