Default Curve 8520 keyboard and trackpad problem

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all

Unfortunately I spilled some beer over my Curve 8520. The keyboard and trackpad didn't respond so I've put it the last 4 days in a bowl of rice.

Thankfully it works again, but after a couple of minutes it's the same problem. The keyboard doesn't work, but the trackpad does (doesn't click though, so only the navigation). It also select the 'n' 'm' automatically and when pressing the n it types the m and vice versa. When this occurs the back button also registers as the letter 'n'.

Is it ready for the bin or should I leave it in the bowl for a few more days? Or can I do anything else.

The cellphone is a couple of months over 2 years old and I really don't want to buy another one....

Thanks!

It is likely dead... Once it was powered back on the circuits got permanently damaged.

Well I guess I'm in luck, it's been running for over a day without any problems.

Don't count on it lasting long however. Make sure you do a backup as soon as possible since it is likely to quit at any time. It is living on borrowed time now.
