Water damage resolution?

A small amount of water has entered my e61 thru the keypad and the crack between the LCD and the phone...which is causing keypad malfunction. Please propose ideas as to how to dry the inside of the phone, or any other work around.

    fixed (for now)

    turned off the phone, removed battery, and placed in front of a table fan with air-flow directly on the face of the phone for 2-3 hours. everything works now.

How should I take care of foundation cracks?

Foundation cracks can be a concerning issue, as they may indicate structural problems or water damage. The appropriate care for foundation cracks can vary based on their size and underlying cause. Here are steps you can take:

Assess the Situation:

  1. Size and Type of Cracks: Measure the width and length of the crack. Generally, small, hairline cracks are less concerning than larger, wider ones.
  2. Location: Note the location of the crack - whether it's on an interior or exterior wall, basement, or elsewhere.

Hairline Cracks:

  1. Sealant: For small, hairline cracks, you can use a concrete patch or sealant designed for foundation repair. This helps prevent moisture from entering and worsening the crack.
  2. Follow Manufacturer's Instructions: Ensure you follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer of the chosen sealant. It typically involves cleaning the area, applying the sealant, and allowing it to dry completely.

Larger Cracks:

  1. Professional Inspection: Larger or wider cracks could indicate more serious issues. It's advisable to consult a professional such as a structural engineer or a foundation repair specialist to inspect the foundation.
  2. Professional Repair: If the crack is deemed a structural concern, the professional might recommend methods such as epoxy injection, carbon fiber strips, or underpinning to reinforce and repair the foundation.

General Tips:

  1. Monitor the Crack: Regularly check the crack's status, especially after heavy rain or changes in weather.
  2. Prevent Water Damage: Ensure your gutters are in good condition and direct water away from the foundation to prevent further damage.

Signs That Warrant Immediate Professional Help:

  • Sudden or Rapid Growth: If the crack grows rapidly, it might indicate a serious issue.
  • Interior Damage: Signs of the crack causing damage inside the house, like doors and windows not closing properly or visible damage on walls, should be addressed promptly.

When to Seek Professional Help:

If you're uncertain about the severity of the crack or its implications, or if you suspect structural damage, it's crucial to get professional advice. Foundation issues are best addressed early to prevent costly repairs in the future and to ensure the safety and stability of your property.
Remember, while some minor cracks can be addressed by DIY solutions, larger or more concerning cracks should be assessed and fixed by experienced professionals to ensure the structural integrity of your home.

Why is my coffee weak?

If it is a drip maker, only gravity drives the hot water thru the coffee grinds. If the coffee is ground too fine, it immediately packs up and doesn't let water flow thru it and the water flows around the coffee instead of thru it.
Try using a coarser grind, and if not you can use a lot smaller amount of coffee and water. A smaller amount of coffee is easier to diffuse thru than a large amount.

Another thing is to slow down the water speed entering the coffee basket. I found the best way to do that is to use water just above freezing and place that extra cold water in the reservoir. The cold water takes extra time to be heated up by the coffee maker so less water is released over the coffee grinds per minute.

If your coffee maker overflows a lot, that is a good indicator that the grind is too fine and/or your coffee filters are too flimsy and are plugging up the channels in your coffee basket and the coffee can't enter the flask, so it overflows.

But the easiest way to check out your coffee maker is to use extra cold water and just run half batches (5 cup) of coffee instead of 10 cup

Numbers 2, 5, & 8 do not work on my Uniden 6.0 cordless handset.

IF YOU ARE mechanically inclined you can take the phone apart and under the rubber keypad and contact board, with a small amount of soapy warm water on a cloth rag, wipe the gold contacts and the board, the keypad can be lightly scrubbed with a tooth brush under running warm water..NOW dry everything ! reassemble. it might be soda pop that's blocking contact or dog drool ? (my dog says the cat did it !) any how this is your best chance, and is not that difficult of a task, works for tv remotes too but they are harder nut to crack, generally phones come right apart, tools needed (small screwdriver kit) good luck Patsy. and if'n I was of any help, a reply would be nice.. jay

Hello, I have a nokia 6100 and when I try to turn it on, all it shows is a blue screen. I went to the beach with it and when I arrived home it was like this. You think that has anything to do with it? And...

Well, possibly yes if the phone went into the water, or spilled water on it.
If you are saying that it is now blue screen, check first if it still emit sound, try pressing buttons and hear out sound coming from it(keypad tones etc), or try calling or texting the phone, if the phone rings or can be contacted or recieves messages, or you can even call using it, the damaged part is the LCD, have it replaced.
If the results are the other way around, possible that it may need re-programming or aso possible is a hardware fault, again have it checked by a technician.
Dont try to push the LCD in an attempt to fix it, it may cause more damaged than anything good, the LCD might crack, or even worse puncture or tamper the connection points of the LCD to the board, might get it grounded of some sort.
The best solution is have it checked by a technician. Dont try to open the phone by your self, because, again, the LCD connector of that particular phone is just a snap on with a thin connector board, wrong procedure in taking the lcd out could cause the connection on the board to go with the lcd connector, rendering it somewhat useless phone, because it is quite difficult to reattach the connector to a tampered board. 6dc0010.jpg

this is what will happen if you remove the lcd wrong

note the two pieces on top of the lcd, those are the connector of the lCD, and the connector that is connected to the board, it is now tampered.

I just got this razor phone and i drop it and now it want come on

this would indicate the lcd ribbon that connects the screen to the motherboard has been damaged or pulled free from the motherboard connector. The screen should light up still if its just cracked [not always, but a majority of the time].

Frozen keypad

The first thing to do is remove the battery for about two minutes, then put it back in and try it, most likely it will work just like new! If not does the phone have any history of liquid damage? Even a small amount of water, juice, pop, beer etc., can damage a cell phone however if you gently dry it out with the battery removed and without charging it by placing it about ten inches above a baseboard heater for a day or two, with it folded open, like you were on a call, it can often solve the problem. Good luck!
