Question about Samsung SYNC SGH-A707 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Samsung a707 dropped my Sync in the toilet for 10 seconds. Took off extra skin, removed battery cover, battery, sim and memory chip. Shook as much water out as possible and dried it with hairdryer for a while. Phone works for the most part, but there is moisture under the top cover, inside the front window. and I can see a ghost rectangle in the middle of the inside window, although the window works. I tried to remove the 6 back screws but have only been successful with 5, which did not come out completely, just got loose. Other 1 is reluctant. How do I slide it open when tne last screw is loose? Do the screws need to be removed completely? As for the front cover, I removed the two screws i could see near the camera's backside but cannot figure out how to open slip off the cover. Can you help on front or back or both? Lisa

Sorry for the delay in response...

Once you have the screws loose, they sometimes stay in the housing. That is okay as long as they are loose from the mounts. The top half only has the two screws. Once they are removed, work the seem with an opening tool, or strong fingernails. Gently pry open the seem and it will start to pop apart. Be careful in the top half because the flex for the surface buttons is attached to the outer housing or front cover. Once you have it snapped loose, you have to unplug that flex, so be careful not to tear it.

Once you have the phone apart, brush all components (not the screen) with 91% rubbing alcohol and a soft bristle brush.

If you want, you can also try leaving the phone in a bag of dry rice. That tends to wick out moisture quite well.

The only risk there is that once moisture is in a phone, it tends to start corroding. It can work fine for quite some time, and then have problems later so I recommend disassemble and clean if at all possible.

    Also, use the hair dryer to dry alcohol out under chipsets before reassemble, because it takes longer to evaporate under there.
