Have you done an effing battery pull?

Yep, its gotten effing wet or in a effing steamy bathroom during a shower, or such. Very typical keyboard problems from moisture.

Read this: Got Your BlackBerry Wet? - BlackBerryFAQ

Don't worry about disassembly, just remove the battery NOW for 4-5 days and place in a bag of dry rice per the instructions.

My wifes Pearl has been in the kitchen sink twice (yes twice!) and both times I followed the destructions how to take it apart and cleaned the circuit board with some solvent on a cotton bud then dried it with another cotton bud and put it back together and it worked but this is probably down to luck as much as my skill as a phone engineer.

So I guess your options are:-

1,take it apart
2.get the rice out and make a Blackberry chow mein for a few days or
3,your effed.

Hang on though,there's always the microwave,hmm...............

Don't mention the effing microwave....someone might actually effing do it.

Post #8 is the safest bet.

Are you saying don't use the microwave?I thought that was what people meant when they said they'd nuked their Blackberry!

It's a good job you told me because next time "she who must be obeyed" does her party piece and hurls her 8110 in the sink I was going to try a couple of minutes on defrost and see if that sorted it out.I suppose I'll have to rethink that one and get the screwdrivers out again.






Please note:No Blackberrys were harmed in the making of this post.

Yep. Check out Post #10 as it is right on track for recommending Post #8, which recommends Post #7, which points out the sage advice of Post #4.

Eff yeah!
