V3x minor water damage - no signal and no SIM recognition

My V3x was sitting on charger on bench top when 5 y.o. splashed water about. Phone stayed on charger sitting in puddle and when discovered cleaned it with PCB solvent and dried out fully. Now boots OK but says emergency calls only (no SIM card will work) and there is no signal strength on the indicator. Fixable? Thanks. Mark.

    The phone has been dry now for about 6 months. It was sitting battery side down and no damage to screens or sound or keypad. When powered up HelloMoto graphic comes up, plays audio file and sits at insert SIM screen. Battery OK - charge circuit OK.

Place the phone in a airtight container filled with rice for a day or two, take it apart as much as possible.

have you tried calling 911 - does it go through?

Well the only possible solution by us was to allow the mobile to dry for 2- 3 days and may be clean the mobile with alchol lighlty..It should get to work after this..But now as you say it doesnt recognise the sim card so now i will recommend you to take the mobile to a Motorola service centre as the sim card sensor might have got damaged due to the water splash on it!..Do claim you warranty if you have one..!! Thank you

Kind Regards!!

Try first to turn off the camera and open it so it will be fully dried for about an hour..

Set is not getting charged


Hi, when a phone does not charge, possible cause forphone not charging is,

: The charger,
and the charging port.

The charger might cause phone not to charge if it is damaged.You can test the charger with another phone if it will charge to confirm if the charger is working.

The charging port can also make phone not to charge, it's located at the low end of the phone where the charger is inserted in the phone.

You can check both to confirm which is faulty.
I think that will help.

Take care.

Maybe rzr v3m; black screen after dropping phonein water


you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

Samsung T629 stuck at splash screen


Take your sim car out and try using these codes to reset the phone.
*2767*2878# and *2767*3855#

Your phone software could also be corrupt.
If you go to samsung you may be able to update the firmware in the phone over the internet.

If all else fails have the phone re-flashed by a technician.

LG PHONE STUCK ON EMERGENCY DOWNLOAD


I had the same problem!! This might help: 1. Take out the battery, SIM card, and memory card (if applicable). 2. Let the phone sit in the sun for a couple of days. 3. Put the SIM card back in the phone and plug the phone charger into the phone. 4. When prompted, insert the battery into the phone 5. When battery is fully charged, remove the charger and depress the call button simultaneously.

I tired this and the phone is now working!!! Also, I do not seem to have lost any of the features!

Good Luck!!!
