Open up the phone and dry it in the sun, or do a blow-drying. Ensure that every trace of water is out of the phone. Then try switching it on. If the screen still appears blank, then the water must have severed the connection between the board and the screen. Open up the entire phone (screws and all ) and first with a soldering pin, melt off totally the solder initially joining the screen to the board, then re-solder it.
I hope this helps.

I think the display unit of your cell is gone for a toss. You need to goto the Nokia service center and get the display unit replaced.

My Nokia 5230 will switch on but the screen is completly blank, can't see a thing. 3 have looked at it & said it can't be reapired!! Just trying different avenues

It seems that the mother board has failed and so replacement of the mother board seems unrealistic as the cost may be as much as a new phone.
But there is not much that can be done on the outside but it is best to take an estimate from Nokia service.

I dropped mt Nokia Nuron 5300 into water, it turns on an stays on but the touch screen dont work so I can enter my password to unlock it.?


You will need to take your mobile to a Nokia service center to get it serviced as the water may have damaged the touch-screen by short-circuiting it.

Thanks and have a nice day.

You need to replace the flex cable on your phone. You can find them on ebay
for around $10 and do it yourself. Or most cell stores will charge $30-$40 on average.
