Question about LG enV VX9900 Cellular Phone
Hello, I have been looking at buying a phone for cheap. One of the phones that crossed my eye was an LG Env that was supposedly dropped in water back in January. The only information that I have is that it was dropped in water, currently will not send or receive calls or messages, and sometimes it turns off when the charger is connected.
I don't know much of anything else, like if the battery was taken out, if it was dried, if anything is shorted, if it is still wet internally, etc. I know about the rice technique and to dry it out, but is that still effective after so much time has passed or if anything has already shorted? Is there any way to salvage this, or should I just pass over this offer? Thanks.
Here is the original offer. Thanks again.
This Green LG envy was dropped in the water, however everything is still functional on the phone. The only problem is the phone will not send or receive messages or calls. It can also turn off sometimes when the charger is connected. You get this phone with the charger and manual. I got this for christmas and used it for 3 weeks then dropped it in the water. It looks brand new, I can't find a scratch on it. You get this phone AS IS.
Ok, the oven for an hour at warm temp got it working, then had no battery but worked on charger with batter in. took battery apart and found the that ground from the battery was not connected to the ground (-) of the termial. I soldered a small jumper from the battery ground to the termial ground and battery was fully working. then had problems with phone shutting off all the time. today i lightly soldered all 4 pins of the battery and the 4 pins on the phone. then put battery back in and melted 2 corners of the plastic together to keep battery from moving around. this was the oppasit side from the battery eject button. phone is 100% working now with no problems. cost $0
good luck with yours!

Maybe a new battery? it should work because i have the same problem. and im thinking of doing that. but my front keys do not work only the end key and no numbers. but the inside from what i've seen is working just fine.
