Question about Sony Ericsson W550i Cellular Phone
I got caught in a torrential downpour yesterday but, as much as i tried to keep my phone as safe as possible, it did get quite wet as well. I didn't notice that it was messed up until a couple of hours later that the only keys that worked were the back button, the side play/pause button, the 9, and the 1. I let it dry for several hours with the battery and sim out, and the orange covers as well, and then the phone starting acting really strange: Now the power, play/pause, volume, web, walkman, back button, the button right above the back button, right, left and middle navigational buttons, the 9, 1, 8, 0, and 5 buttons all work correctly, however the others are a real problem. If the phone is automatically locked, then the lock side switch works, but if it's unlocked and I use that button to switch it to lock, it plays my walkman. The up and down navigational buttons don't work unless you hold down the button and then let go, hoping that it stops on the desired selection. The C button turns on the web. The button right above the C button does whatever the button on the opposite side does. The camera button plays the walkman. And all of the other number buttons do odd combinations (like pressing ?2? comes up 762 and # comes up 8, etc.). I let the phone dry again in the same manner overnight and still the same situation. I just bought the phone (online and not as part of a special offer or anything) and I really want to see if there?s anything I can do before I bring it to a specialist... My boyfriend suggested resetting the phone (as the sim card is not affected)... Do you think this would work? Help!
