Exclamation 8830 Water Damage Indicators - WITH PICS

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone,

My 8830 won't turn on and won't seem to take a charge (aka no lights light up when I plug it in to charge, and it doesn't turn on).

I was worried about Telus claiming possible water damage, as I have heard that the indicator changes to pink even if you bring it in the bathroom with a shower on.

I pulled my battery, but I am not sure what the water damage indicator is. The battery has a white sticker with a red line through it that looks a lot like a water damage sticker, but I know there has to be one on the body too, or people would just swap the battery and get a new one.

My questions are:

1) is the white label with the red line on the battery a water damage indicator?

2) is the white little square in the top corner of the blackberry, under the battery (circled in red in the picture) also the water damage indicator? If so, are there any more? If not, where is it?

Thanks guys (and gals), I really appreciate the help! :buddies:
