Angry Malfunctioning 8200

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,
So I suppose water got into my phone after washing my hands. The water damage thing is still I'm guessing not enough got in to detect it.
I can call people still. The scroll button scrolls but if I click it it takes me to the call area. I still receive texts but I can't view them. The arrow button types hl. other buttons work though if i want to search for a name to call.
I don't know what's going on or what to do...
Suggestions would be amazing.
Thank You!

Take the battery out and open up the phone as much as possible to allow air to get to it. If you have a fan direct it on the BB and NO NOT put the battery back or use the phone for 24 - 48 hours and MAYBE it will come back to life.

If the pad is just damaged you may be able to replace that yourself or clean it.
