Question about Samsung Blackjack SGH-I607 Smartphone

9 Answers

Blackjack turns off after Windows startup screen.

My blackjack was laying on a table when a glass of water got spilled. The water went under the phone for less than a second or two before I picked it up. The phone worked fine all evening, but the next day it would not stay on. Every time I put the battery back in, the windows startup screen comes on then the phone turns off. Is there a code or something to override this auto shut-down? The phone is clean and dry.

    Opened the phone days ago and swabbed with alcohol. Put back together and then sat it next to dehumidifier. I know its dry. But it still won't stay on.

  • player87 Jul 06, 2008

    I have tried both batteries while it is plugged in and it does the same thing.

  • player87 Jul 06, 2008

    Still need a solution!

  • player87 Jul 06, 2008

    What type of repair center? I've been told Samsung won't even touch it if it had water damage.

  • player87 Jul 06, 2008

    I guess there is nothing that can be done since this all happened 5 days ago. The phone was working so we left the battery in it while it dried. Maybe its shorted out. I thought maybe there was a code to override this kind of problem.

  • player87 Jul 06, 2008

    Don't know what the motherboard is or what the lcd connection looks like.

  • player87 Jul 06, 2008

    The phone won't power up unless I take the battery out and put it back in

  • player87 Jul 06, 2008

    I re-scrubbed the leads and board with alcohol and it is sitting in a dehumidifier zone. I disconnected the lcd from the motherboard and am waiting for it to dry before I reconnect.

  • player87 Jul 07, 2008

    It's put back together and everything seems to work, except it says it doesn't recognize any of our Cingular sim cards. Now what do I do?

  • player87 Jul 07, 2008

    Would a total reboot help the sim problem? or is there a code?

  • player87 Jul 07, 2008

    I need to figure out how to get it to load everything on the sim. If I type in a number from my contact list on my sim it recognizes it, but I can't get the entire contact list from my sim to appear.

If you pulled the battery out in time, cleaning the inside of your phone with cleaning alcohol (alcohol will displace the water) or contact spray will fix your problem.
If there is even one drop of water left inside, it can ruin your phone by corroding it and making the wrong contact.

Now if it's not recognizing the SIM cards then you may need to clean the sim card contacts. Do these SIM cards work OK in other phones? If so then your blackjack's SIM interface could be beyond swabbing with alcohol. Are you using 98-99-100% isopropyl alcohol or rubbing alcohol? Rubbing alcohol has minerals and detergents that can make things worst for electronics.

If you do a search on eBay you should be able to find replacement boards for te Blackjack and since you've opened the phone up already then it should be quite simple for you to replace it.

If the water soaked the back of the phone it is poissible that the battery has been damaged.
Try a replacement battery before taking the phone apart, this can solve the problem.
If you take the phone to a shop they can test it with a spare battery before selling you a new one.

    If it still does turn off after drying up and testing a new battery, it means it is faulty. A samsung Blackjack does not turn itself off in this way just because of a setting, phone going off it means it is faulty. Either water inside phone had left some oxide causing contact, or water have shorted some circuit causing something to blow inside phone or something had not be reassembled properly after taking it apart (connectors, power switch).
    Check your guaranty terms and eventually contact Samsung following instructions at the end of your owner manual.

No code will work because its not a issue to unlock a code,
with the current problem you should go to authorized centre of your mobile to get it repaired.it may be required to change certain parts to get it on again.

Your cellphone is shorted that is the symptom of a shorted cellphone, its automatically shut off,you can repair it by yourself .Open your cellphone,take out the motherboard ,then detached the lcd from the motherboard,and brush the board with a toothbrush with alcohol and dry it under the heat of the sun for three hours ,or if you have hot air gun ,its better.When it finish to dry up,back it again ,then you can use it again...

    why did you use alcohol on drying the phone I don't get that. Put it in ice for a day or two.

  • Ekse Jul 06, 2008

    Not in ice, Rice

  • Ekse Jul 06, 2008

    Ok, I got the part about the alcohol



    In most cases, if you pulled the battery out in time, cleaning the inside of your phone with cleaning alcohol (alcohol will displace the water) or contact spray will fix your problem. If there is even one drop of water left inside, it can ruin your phone by corroding it and making the wrong contact. If your phone is powering up but still acting strange after you have cleaned it, then you've missed some liquid or the corrosion has already occurred and disassembly and cleaning with a toothbrush and appropriate solvent may fully fix it. For the fainthearted, a skilled technician or engineer can often fix such an issue easily and quickly.

  • Ekse Jul 06, 2008

    take the phone with you to a local phone shop mate, they can direct you to someone who can do the repair. if not try another phone shop.

I think you need to take it to a repairing center. try using another battery to see whether it works.

My blackjack ii just stopped working. I turned it


IT sounds like a software glitch.
the phone will most likely need a hard reset to repair it.
Sadly this will delete all of the personal data on your phone, and reset the phone to its factory defaults.
To perform a manual Hard Reset, press the Up Navigation key and the (Power) key.

Samsung Blackjack I607 went from slow to no text to completely disabled


You will need a replacement. This happened to me TWICE since I got my BlackJack2 in March (once in May, once in July). Also happened to my co-worker who got the same phone at the same store. Tech support said they've gotten a few cases like this. I was told if it happens a third time, then they would allow me to choose a different type of PDA. If your BlackJack is still under warranty, they will give you a refurbished one to replace it. If you have insurance, same deal. If not under warranty and no insurance, you'll have to spring for a brand new phone.

Samsung Blackjack II Screen Stays Black


I have a solution. Call at&t. they will send you a new one. I have had my phone for 5 months and it happened to me also. There's a warranty on the phone itself that covers it from the day "you" started using it. I bought mine from a friend. Cool!! It should be here in 5 days free shipping.

Unlock my blackjack 2


i think all you have to do when the phone is locked is push the top left (...) button right under where it says "unlock" on the screen. Then push the */sym button next to the zero. I have never needed a code to unlock. also, when your phone is locked, you have to lightly push the power button on the top of the phone to get the screen back on.
