I have a strange water like droplet in the centre of my screen (9300). The screen works fine, and the drop seems to be trapped in between screen and top plastic cover.
I dont know how it got there, it was never wet. I put it on top of coffee vending machine. The spot disappears but comes back when phone comes abck to normal temp.
Please help. It seems the vapor has no way to come out of the screen.

Plastic Cover? As in the original shipping protective plastic? Good discovery...though I honestly didn't even consider that...I always remove those shipping plastics when I get any new device. Good find!

HEY i just put my phone in the washer it was only in there for tops 3 mins,but i was really wet when i took it out, i took the battery out and blow dryed it then tried t check if it worked then took the battery out again and put it in rice im freaking out! now what?
How well would you do under water for three whole minutes?
If you keep putting the battery in to check it, you're going to fry it and kiss it bye bye.
Follow the instructions below, especially the part about REMOVE THE BATTERY and 3-5 days.
It sounds like what I have seen multiple times on a device with moisture damage.
Even sitting on a bathroom counter during a hot steamy shower or bath can cause keyboard and trackball problems UNTIL properly dried out. It really is more common than you think.
1. Remove the battery immediately!! Do not attempt to turn on your BlackBerry.
2. Let the device dry in a warm, dry place for 3 to 5 days* (see below)
3. DO NOT "check it each day" by placing the battery in. Leave it be to dry completely. This takes time. Replacing the battery to check it can only damage it more (moisture + electrical current = disaster).
4. If the device is warm after the drying period, allow it to cool to room temperature before placing the battery back in.
Suggestions on drying your BlackBerry in a warm place (open, with the battery out):
*Place the BB in a container of dry UNcooked rice, and then you might also place it in any of the locations mentioned below.
*On top of any dry heat emitting electronic component: TV cabinet or CRT, LCD, cable TV/Satellite converter box or plasma monitor
*On the dashboard of your car on a sunny day

Hi, I had my blackberry in my bag along with a bottle of perfume. The perfume leaked all over my bag and onto my blackberry. I turned it on and the screen is blotchy and half of the keys dont work. It is currently drying but do you think it is dead or could I get it repaired?
