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.
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.
Well this is the issue i'm trying to explain to some expert who believes that RICE is NOT TOTALLY EFFECTIVE.as a technician for several years.i never EVER heard that this solution totally accurate.
We are not talking about the phone must be dry inside,we are talking about It must be clean & dry inside,obviously that is different.
If you let the the water runs dry on your phone,rust or corrosion will be the result after.some parts would be damage if this rust EAT the metal parts usually PIN GRID IC as well as ball grid that connects into the PCB or mainboard,dis advantages are,some functions occurs such as keypad,display.tones etc.,mobile parts such as IC's is different from an appliances IC's,it is more functional as well as very sensitive.
If you can dismantle the phone and clean it as well (dry it of course),a big change to make the phone all functions work well because,no parts will be corroded or damage.
Take a look at this amateur video,this will guide you to dismantle your phone instead of explain it literally.
All you have to do is provide the following.
* a rust solution (such as WD-40) or a lacquer thinner
* a cotton and a cloth
* hair blower
* a toothbrush
* upon dismantling the phone,apply the wet or corroded parts which is affected by water with a rust solution,gently brush the area,rub it it after with a cotton and wipe it with a clan and dry cloth,reheat the area with a hair blower in low level.now assemble the phone and test.
Well if there is some malfunction keys and encounter program abnormalities,you need to bring the phone to service center for a complete diagnosis and troubleshooting.
It ispossible that this can be ahardware issue so check if there was any chance of water or moisture that has crept into the keypad. If so dry out, check for visible damage to the LED's, if non eo fhte LED's light up it can be a common rail and switch point which has lost out, maybe a break or a driver failure that needs to be probed.
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.
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.
you have a software problem. take your phone for flashing. but if there was water damage, then the phone might be dead. flashing the phone replaces the phone's firmware with new firmware, making the phone brand new
Take battery out let dry for a couple of days. see if it will power up without the battery. And the phone hooked to the charger. If not try same procedure with battery in and power up while charging. Either way take battery out for a while.
