Numbers 7 8 and 9 not working


This is a generalist answer not one specific to this phone!

One of two problems here, the circuit board still has dirt or water residue on it preventing the signals from the keypad from being interpreted properly (a short), or the keypad its self is not conducting the current from the button pads properly when pressed.

Because there are three keys not working then I would imagine its the first problem as the circuits for a keypad circuit is arranged in a grid and this look like the row conductor is not working.

Damage like this often occurs to mobile phones months after they get wet as they slowly corrode with the smallest amounts of water left sitting in between or under the chips on the boards. If the phone has had water spilt on it then it isn't usually a problem if dried properly, anything else though usually is more of a problem.

The rubber keypad can be removed and washed in warm soapy water. The underside of each button is a conductive rubber and needs to be free of any 'stickyness'. these are usually pretty robust. (Only the rubber bit with the printed numbers on it!)

Once cleaned pat dry, even put it somewhere warm dry, or use a hair dryer.. once your happy there is no water left in the buttons etc put it together and try the phone again. I suspect it wont fix your problem though but that's the easiest fix of the two. If you don't want to pay for it to be repaired then have a poke around as its not going to be much use as it is, you'll need to do a bit of investigative work.

Take the phone apart, look for a track on the main circuit board that goes to each area where the 789 buttons would sit, follow it from the buttons and eventually it will go to a black chip on the circuit board, somewhere between that chip and the button pads is your problem. Look how clean the circuit board is near that chip, its likely the 789 button track goes to one of the pins of the chip and it is shorting to one of the pins next to it. if you confident use a pin and gently scrap between the pins, check both sides of the board in the same area for anything dirt related.

If you can get hold of an air line blow under the chip where the tracks go, (make sure nothing is around that is loose on the board that can blow away)

Other than that without a friend with a soldering iron there's not a lot else you can do.

Uniden 6.0 phone got wet.


If the phone got wet it will probably not work anymore. You might try tossing it in a bag of rice to dry it out completely. But in most cases, dropping the phone in water will ruin it.

We have dropped the handset in a bucket of water. How can we get inside it to dry it properly? Will it work again?


remove the battery immediately, open the housing and spread all equipment. if you have pure alcohol then clean the parts (except battery and LCD). leave it for 10-15 minute and reassmeble it. now check the battery condition if it is dry then insert and power on but if the battery is wet then wait for dry that naturally. dont try to heat them or dont let them in direct sunlight as this act can damage your battery. after some time you can power on your phone.

vote me if found helpfull.

Dropped the phone unit into water last nite, tried to dry it out with a hair dryer, still not working... battery seems fine tho


You need to try Silica Gel Packets to dry out your phone. There was a good article on associatedcontent.com that explains how to dry a wet cell phone, iPods, or any electronics.

You need to place your cell phone in a zip lock bag with Silica Gel Packets. Silica Gel will remove all the moisture from the phone and its components, something air drying will not do!

Just Google "Silica Gel Packets" and you will find several companies selling these products. There is also a web site called: http://www.SilicaGelPackets.com that has them.

My cordless phone fell in the toilet, it worked briefly after it happened but now is dead. Anything I can do?


Once a piece of electronic equipment gets wet, you need to disassemble it, remove the battery and dry it carefully using a lint free cloth. Then use a hair dryer2_bing.gif to dry it out. Do not put the hair dryer too close as you could overheat and damage the item. If you wait too long to do this, the water may have already fatally damaged your phone as things begin corroding quickly. Good luck!

Cordless phone fell in water, can it be fixed


Normally after drying out, It should work, If its not tho, you will prob be better off replacing it... If you have a nice one, With built in Answering machine and all that, check to see if its expandable, If so then just buy a expandable headset as a replacement, That way you keep the same phone system, get a new phone, and it works as good if not better than your old one.

My iphone fell in hot boiling water for a catering tray. now it is fried / dead


did you take your battery out as soon as you got it out of the water? this is why water kills cell phones when you get one wet and there is power then somthing is going to short out, but maybe if your lucky it may still work,you want to get the battery out dry it with a hair dryer on a low setting then put it in a closed container with some silica packets or bury it in some dry rice for 24hrs then you will put your battery in charger and pray and turn it on
