Cell Phone Repair Question?

Question by aarie37: Cell Phone Repair Question?
I went swimming with my phone in my pocket accidentally about a month ago. I took the battery out right away and dried everything out. I took just the phone and saked it in alcohol to help it dry. I let it dry for 3 days then put the battery back on. It worked, but the backlight on the phone does not work. I can barely see the screen but the phone functions perfectly except for the backlight. I got an estimate from CPR (Cell Phone Repair) and it was $ 65. I told them I am not paying that much for it to be repaired, since I bought the phone for $ 50 dollars. It its a Motorola V325. Can anybody tell me what is wrong with it, or how much it would cost to fix it.

  1. It could be that the light shorted out or is about to burn out due to the water damage. If you are handy with a solder gun and good with electronics, open your phone and find out if Radioshack carries that particular light.

    If they do, it is a simple matter of removing the old light and soldering in the new light.

    Keep in mind that it might be worth it to just buy a new phone. You can get a no frills phone on eBay for as little as $ 5.

    Best of luck.
