Question about Samsung SYNC SGH-A707 Cellular Phone

Keys type wrong # after getting wet

Our phone got wet and seemed to recover except that it had a password on it and we can't get back in. I finally discovered that all of the numbers work except the 7 types a 1, 8 types a 2 and 9 types a 4 and that is probably why it won't accept the password. Any clues on what we can do from here?

You can try taking the phone apart and brushing it out with 91% rubbing alcohol. It sounds like the switch relay module has corrossion under it. You need a very tiny phillips screwdriver. There are a total of 6 screws in the back of the phone. 2 at the bottom, 2 under the batter cover, and 2 more at the top under some rubber bushings. Once the screws are removed, make sure if you have as SD memory card that it is out of the phone, the battery is out, and the SIM card is out. Carefully snap the back cover off of the phone. This will expose the MB. Once you have the MB exposed, unplug the main flex (top right, you'll see it) and the keypad flex (top left, under the board) and the antenna (bottom right). Be very careful because if you damage any of these, your phone will not work correctly. After unplugging all of these, the MB (mother board) should come out. Use a toothbrush and 91% rubbing alcohol to brush out any visible corrosion. Don't be afraid to get the phone good and wet with the alcohol.

Let the board dry fully, reassemble (carefully) and see what happens. If that doesn't take care of it, you'll need the phone professionally cleaned and possibly component replacement. If you end up needing this, i recommend www.wirelessunlimitedinc.com, or www.myspace.com/wirelessunlimited.

They are fast, efficient, affordable, and have most of what you would need in stock.

Good Luck.

Just set up my brand new hp laptop ,password e.c.t. But now it won't except my password ,so now I can't open it at all.


Check to make sure that you haven't accidentally enabled either the numlock or CapsLock keys before trying to enter your password. (or they were enabled when you first entered the password!) Passwords are case sensitive. Some keyboards have alternative number entry defaults when the numlock key is active, so when you go to type letters, if the numlock key is active, you get numbers instead.

You may be able to reset the password from the HP recovery partition. Check your manual on how to enter the recovery partition. If you can get to another PC, here are some tips for recovering the password on HP laptops.... forgot my password for my hp laptop

LOST WIFI SECURITY KEY WORD
If you have lost your WEP/WAP wifi key phrase there is no way to recover it except go into the router administration settings and see if it is in plain text there. If not then you will have to make up a new key phase and apply it to ALL your connected devices.
In future, write the key phrase down on a piece of tape and apply it to the bottom of your router. You can use a hint instead of the actual phrase.

I have a dodge caravan tonight while it was raining.. my car lights kept flashing on and off over and over until finally my car died and the lights just stayed on. my keys were not even in the car. this is...


Hi, I happen to own a van too with the same problem except that I know what my problem is. I can tell you that you have a leak somewhere where the wiring to your lights is getting exposed and wet and the sooner you find the leak, the better. If you let it go too long, something is eventually going to short out and leave you with bigger problems and hopefully it won't be the ECM. So I suggest you turn the garden hose on and give your car a good wetting and follow the wiring from the headlights, all the way back to the harness/firewall. Im sure youll find exposed wires that are wet. Good luck

My phone got wet.Now the keys won't work,except the turn on/off key.I can't type in my PIN code.That happned yesterday.What should I do?


When your mobile gets wet you need to immediately remove all you items in the phone like SIM, Memory card and Battery and wipe . Immediately after that go to a service centre and give it for repair. They will wipe your mobile with petrol and check if the mobile is in good condition even after getting wet in the water.
