    Help/ Advice on k800i

    Dropped it in some water. The battery swelled up so replaced that and turned it on. Basically it comes up with a white screen then turns off then white screen.

    Anyway to sort that problem out?

    did you dry it completely before you turned it on?

    Not really its was a week ago. No actual water in it, probably the odd bit of moisture. Wasnt that bothered to be honest, now i am! lol

    I do have another working k800i though so I can test things. So for example i can swap screens to see if thats the problem. But dont want to risk breaking a working one if its not going to be the screen
    water is deffo got into the inside though because i can see abit of moisture on the camera under the protective glass

    my phone did this it started flashing black and white - i didnt drop mine in water though
    i had to re-install all the software back in ti the phone from the sony ericson website
    works perfect now - touch wood!

    Ok little update when I connect via USB. It finds it then it disconnects when the screen goes off then connects again etc. just like the screen. could this be software like bambu says?

    when i conected mine to the usb - screen didnt change kept flashing black and white still,
    it took a long time to download all the software back to the phone, but well worth it
