Hi, I would ask them to show proof of the water damage for starters! Check your reciepts of purchase for the serial number for the phone you paid for, and check that number to the one they show you, to keep them honest,(there are dodgy repairers out there) and if its the same place you bought it from, yet the serial number is different, they are pulling a swifty!!
These phones are quite reliable.
PS: Has a friend maybe spilt a drink on it at a party or such, but not telling?
Failing that, speak to consumer affairs.

Some of my buttons stopped working what can I do?

Most of the time when the buttons stop working on a cell phone it's because either, the user does a LOT of texting or liquid (like water, sweat or moisture) has gotten into the phone. Or, it's been dropped. Either way, it will need to be repaired.

If it was a liquid - like sweet tea (sugar) or sweat (salt) - you may never get it to work right again.

If it's from a small amount of water, a lot of texting, or has been dropped it will need to be sent to a repair facility to have the keypad repaired or replaced. - if there is no other internal damage that has been done to the phone.

Also, you need to consider the real possibility that repairing this phone will not guarantee that the same problem will not re-occur. In my experience, it usually does in a short period of time.

My advice is to get an estimate from a repair facility and then decide for yourself if your money would be better spent purchasing a new phone after learning the cost of the repair.

As a final note, the non-working buttons may also be caused from an issue with the phone's software. You won't know for sure what the problem really is - or how to correct it if it can even be corrected - until the phone is checked by a qualified technician.

Leica disto A3 button broke

Leica does not sell replacement keypads, if the unit is less than 2 years old they will cover it under warranty. Contact the dealer you bought it from and they can handle the warranty exchange. If it is over two years old, it is out of warranty, but they offer a "repair" option, which will replace your damaged A3 with a new D3 for about $215. If you bought it from a reputable dealer, you shouldn't have any problem.
Hope this helps,

2003 altima cruise control button broke off.

I've had the same problem on a 2004. The SET button has popped off for the second time now. Last time I bought the cluster and repaired myself. Hey, plastic parts break but my complaint is that Nissan should supply a $5 plastic button that would just pop in the spot where the old button was. As is you must buy the whole control cluster. That's just wrong!

G600 keypad not working

Take your phone to your local market & ask any market phone repair vendor to fit a new keepad membrane, if this doesn't work it's trobably irriparable damage either caused by water or the fumes of some kind of solvent for example super glue.
