Question about Nokia 1600 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Sim card phone was dropped into a cup of coffee. Took it apart, dried everything. Phone was working fine. Now it says insert sim card even though sim card is inserted. Took it out and cleaned it off, reinserted still won't work. Ordered new one but hard to wait several days. Is there some store like Radio Shack where a new sim card can be purchased locally?

I have a motorola clutch my phone was sitting on the able when it lit up! when i grabbed it and looked at it, it restarted itself then the screen said insert sim but the sim card is already in it!


Your problem could be with the sim card, with the sim interface on the phone and or sim ic on the circuit board.

1. First, let's check the sim card, switch off the phone > remove the sim card > clean it properly using a small ball of cotton dipped in alcohol or acetone, > let it dry > Now put the same sim card on another mobile > if it's working then go to next step, if it's not, then the problem is with your sim card. You need another replacement.

2. Now clean the sim interface/connector on the mobile using cotton dipped in alcohol or acetone, After they are dried, insert the sim card and power on the phone. How is it? Is it working now? Let's hope................ go.. yes it's working.
Oops, it's not, then next step..
3. Open it apart and clean whatever is possible, [use a soft brush with alcohol or acetone to clean the components]. When everything's dried, assemble it an insert the sim card again. If it's not successful. Your last option is to get it done from a mobile repairing shop or from a servicing center. They will check the phone on the computer using the specific software and hardware, then they will handle with your mobile's hardware, possibly sim ic and sim connector.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Wet cell phone-blank screen


Well it depends on the type of screen you have in the phone. Some have edges that can split open and lose the fluid that projects the picture so your best bet is to just replace the phones screen, if every thing else works fine

Dropped phone in water


SIM is probably bad or a little wet. but wait and let everything dry out and see if it works. Mine was soaked and the next morning worked fine. at least you probably won't have to buy a new phone.

My LG Vu says Emergency download after I dropped it in water. And it won't do anything but go to that screen fell into the toilet and when i tried turning it on i saays Emergency Download


Take out the battery....then put it back in. Do not try to turn on the phone yet. Next plug the phone up to charge. Wait until the charging screen appears and then power the phone. Worked for me.....good luck.

Insert SIM Card message in nokia 6080 though SIM is inserted


May be its detecting your sim card properly. Check your sim card in another handset. Verify if its the propbelm with sim card not your handset.

Razor phone not reading sim card


Have you tried a different SIM to make sure that isn't the problem? I'd say 3 out of 4 times when the phone gets wet the other stuff works after it dries, but people constantly have problems with reading the SIM afterwards. Hopefully swapping the SIM card out will help, otherwise your only option is to have a repair shop fix it up for you.

No signal!


There is most likely corrosion from the water, or liquid on the mother board. It needs to be professionally cleaned if you want to have some functionality back. Best of Luck.

SE K750i displaying 'insert sim' even though sim is inside.


This problem is due to your phone's sim card IC malfunctioning. It may get damaged due to phone dropping gently into rough surface and its crystal structure may break due to it. for any queries mail to mahesh_vr@yahoo.com

No buttons work...not even the volume and others along side


I had the EXACT same problem this morning. After leaving the cingular store where the guy just wanted to sell me a new phone, I went home and took the phone apart - just took off the battery cover, battery, sim card and the rest of the back cover, reattached cover, put everything back together and everything works fine now! Try it - good luck! You need a T5 torx bit to remove the two screws holding on the back cover.
