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.

Orange light mean

The orange light indicates its stuck in charging mode.
Hold volume down and power for 15 seconds, you should see the bottom buttons flash a few times and it will go into recovery mode.
Use volume keys to highlight restart phone and press power once.

Press the left upper button on the inside keypad, then the right upper button, then # 4, then "OK" That should take care of the inbox, the sent, and the drafts.

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,

Keypad problem of sony ericsson

It could be any number of problems, jhoyz0018: a fault, it has been dropped, or it may just be dirt/dust that has lodged under the membrane and stops the keppad from working properly.

You have three options:

1. If you bought the phone from a store or direct from a manufacturer or Airtime Provider, return it for replacement/repair.

2. If you have Phone or Home Contents Insurance, make a claim for a new phone on that.

3. If you bought the phone second hand, off eBay or similar, then carefully remove the fascia, clean the membrane and keypad with a lint-free cloth or air-brush and re-assemble. If still not working, you will need to return your phone for repair/replacement.

Good luck!

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!

Disc read error

Hey, i bought a ps3 almost 2 years ago now, its been more reliable for me than my old ps2. i would try and phone them again if you aint recieved the case soon,
it does sometimes take a while for them to repair it and send it back ie if its the same console, they might just swap it for another ie once u get it sent away :-).
sounds like a problem with the laser, im sure you will see the case soon, and touch wood have no problems with the replacement ps3.

Nokia phone keypad

well its posted for a 6300 nokia , right, i think the keypad ic must have faulted , only if u have dropped the phone or exposure to liquids, take it to some nearby local nokia service centre or near by phone shop and get it repaired for the keypad ic problem.

one unique troubleshooting , if it works see if u can get it solved by removing the memory card, sometimes faulty memory card does produce such problems

also it could be due to uneven powersupply from battery try with a genuine battery or a good battery.

if all of the above doesnt work then only alternative is to get the keypad ic changed.

I have had this problem multiple times. It is apparently a flaw with the keypad on the phone. The keypad emits too much oil and causes it to stop working. I've sent my phone in twice to get the keypad replaced (there are companies selling replacement pads on ebay), otherwise, I've just learned to take my phone apart, wipe off the contacts and it works fine.
