Consider yourself luck. My spill lost all life in my phone and so I lost my contact list. I wish I had transferred my list to Verizon.com where it can be stored.

Numbers 7 8 and 9 not working


This is a generalist answer not one specific to this phone!

One of two problems here, the circuit board still has dirt or water residue on it preventing the signals from the keypad from being interpreted properly (a short), or the keypad its self is not conducting the current from the button pads properly when pressed.

Because there are three keys not working then I would imagine its the first problem as the circuits for a keypad circuit is arranged in a grid and this look like the row conductor is not working.

Damage like this often occurs to mobile phones months after they get wet as they slowly corrode with the smallest amounts of water left sitting in between or under the chips on the boards. If the phone has had water spilt on it then it isn't usually a problem if dried properly, anything else though usually is more of a problem.

The rubber keypad can be removed and washed in warm soapy water. The underside of each button is a conductive rubber and needs to be free of any 'stickyness'. these are usually pretty robust. (Only the rubber bit with the printed numbers on it!)

Once cleaned pat dry, even put it somewhere warm dry, or use a hair dryer.. once your happy there is no water left in the buttons etc put it together and try the phone again. I suspect it wont fix your problem though but that's the easiest fix of the two. If you don't want to pay for it to be repaired then have a poke around as its not going to be much use as it is, you'll need to do a bit of investigative work.

Take the phone apart, look for a track on the main circuit board that goes to each area where the 789 buttons would sit, follow it from the buttons and eventually it will go to a black chip on the circuit board, somewhere between that chip and the button pads is your problem. Look how clean the circuit board is near that chip, its likely the 789 button track goes to one of the pins of the chip and it is shorting to one of the pins next to it. if you confident use a pin and gently scrap between the pins, check both sides of the board in the same area for anything dirt related.

If you can get hold of an air line blow under the chip where the tracks go, (make sure nothing is around that is loose on the board that can blow away)

Other than that without a friend with a soldering iron there's not a lot else you can do.

Water damage


Remove the battery and let the unit sit for a day or two. It takes a lot longer to dry out than it seems. If it doesn't work after that amount of time, the water probably did permanent damage. The cell company's regular warranty covers defects, but their premium insurance should cover even water damage. If they don't cover it at all, the repair cost probably isn't worth it if you can get a deal on a new phone. Definitely worth a shot to call or stop in your cell company's physical store and chat them up.

Display and keypad lights not coming


If your keypad lights and display is not working, then you have to service it. The display might got have damaged if it fells down or if some water spilled on that.. Make sure you keep your electronics free from water.

Thanks

Spilt water on mouse. Now red light on


if the mouse is working properly then you might just want to leave it, is it a rechargable mouse?

If you do want to try and fix it , you could try carefully opening it, you should not need to use much if any force and then make sure everything inside is dry, using a hairdryer on low heat can be useful.

there is a chance the water has damaged the electronics of the mouse and so you might not be able to fix the problem.

I've spilt water on my Nokia 2760 mobile phone. The phone still switches on (it still makes the welcome tone) but the screen is blank. Any ideas how I can fix it?


If you had known, you should have blown it with air dryer before switching it on. The thing is try to dissasemble the display unit and wipe the connection points (either silver or gold metal connectors that attach it to the phone) with dry cotton wool. You can still blow it with hair dryer. If it does not work after this, try fixing another display unit.

Water Damage


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.

Nokia N70 doesn't display anything?


You have to open it up to dry it up with a hair dryer , there is still water inside the phone. Do not turn it on until you have dry up all the water other wise you will damage the phone. Good luck
