You may be able to go on Ebay and find a replacement keypad for the A900.  What has happened is etching and a form of electrolysis.  When you got it wet, you must have left the battery in the phone.  The power from the battery along with the water around you keypad, actually will cross migrate copper from one contact to another and short out the keypad permanently.  Your contact that took the phone into download mode is shorted.

Dropped phone (Samsung SPH-M540), may have gotten wet. Screen will only show Download Mode --Mode: Emergency Port: USB

Try & press the reset button. It is near or under the battery. You night need to use the end of a paperclip. If that fails see your provider.

Blue screen on main display

You most likely need a new ribbon cable, which is the cable that connects the two halves of the phone. They are not expensive and can be ordered on eBay, and they come with the tools required to disassemble the phone and replace the cable.

Samsung Sync

Its one of the most common problem in Samsung SGH-A707.It is mainly due to one reason i,e. your cell got wet.....!!!
But you can try following steps to get rid of it:
  1. Takeout the battery of your phone.
  2. Leave your cell in air for a day or two without attaching battery and battery cover to it.
  3. Put the battery back,it should work.If still problem exists, then I'll recommend you to buy a new battery for your cell........and before you put that new battery in your cell,leave your cell in air for another two days with the same procedure.

VOICE RECORD

Sounds like the phone may have gotten wet.

Check behind the battery, there is a white sticker that turns RED if its gotten wet.

Otherwise, there may be a short in the keyboard.

It may need to be replaced.




Best of Luck.
