Unhappy Blackberry keypad not working

Please Login to Remove!


Last night my Blackberry underwent accident I dropped it at a club and I also think some of my drink spilt on it when someone knocked into me.

It stopped working, so I removed the battery and left it overnight. The next morning I plugged the charger in and the phone recognised that it was being charged but the keypad (and the trackball) weren't working at all. About an hour later it started working and so I could use my phone. After a bit the keypad started messing up- when I typed a letter a different letter would come up, and when I went back to the main screen numbers would type even though I wasn't typing.

Now the keypad has completely stopped working again. When I plug the charger in it doesn't even recognise that it's being charged, so my battery is slowly dying.

Any ideas?

Thanks so much

First, if you get a blacberry wet, overnight is not long enough. The best advice seems to be 3-5 days. If you get the battery out right away, and you get it good and dry before you power it on again, you have a good chance of salvage. You may have ruined the device.

And if there were sugars and whatever else besides alchohol and water in your drink and that is in the blackberry, you've compounded the problem.
