I left v3 in pocket and went swimming. It dried out and worked fine for 2 weeks. Then my son spilled his soda on it and it quit working completely. I charged it up and key pad lights up for a few sec. but phone does not work. Can I take screen apart and clean it or the rest of the phone? I have lots of contacts in the phone book and no insurance on the phone to get it replaced, can someone help me please?
Thanks S. Berman

try taking it apart and letting it all sit straight up for one week thats what i did it works sometimes if not your best set is to find a local cell phone shop not a franchise one like in a mall and ask if they can get it fixed or refurbished..
If a phone gets wet, turn it off, get the strongest rubbing alcohol you can find (we have 91% here) and immerse the phone in the alcohol. Let it sit for a minute or two and then take it out and let it dry. The alcohol will either wash away the water or mix with it to make it dry faster so it shouldn't corrode the contacts. This had to be done with the phone still wet from the original spill. Taking it to the vendor, they will look in the BTTY compartment and see that the phone was wet (little paper sensor that changes color if it ever gets wet) and that voids the warranty so you are kind of stuck sorry.
what occurs with liquid damage is a cemical reaction. the fluid and the electicity create an alckaline which looks a lot like mould but acts like acid. when this happens it eats away at the components in the phone and eventually the phone dies or the prob persist until you just can't stand it anymore.
u shouldnt have switched on your dvd after u spilled soda on it but still u can repare it
1) remove your battery,and all wires connected 2 the dvd
2) THen open your dvd player if u find any slots or anything like tat remove it from your dvd
3)then wipe the ic and all the components of your dvd player an with a slight wet cloth
4)alloy it to dry for 24 hours or more
5)do not use blow dryers or fans to boost up the process
6)then put all the parts on their place
i am sure it will work best of luck
My phone (in a cotton phone bag) was very slightly damped by a spilled drink about 4 months ago. The keyboard immediately stopped working (only power button works). My friend told me to blow dry it, so I tried and it worked. Just today, my keyboard stopped working again even though there was no further water damage (at least not to my knowledge), I used the blower dryer trick again. and it worked again. So ... you can give it a try.
