Hi emmababey123

Red indicates that your BlackBerry had suffered a moisture intrusion or your device got wet in the past ,Can you confirm that .. think carefully ? If it's then I doubt a simple software reload will work .

Re: white screen of death

Hi there,

 

If our BlackBerry ever got wet then we should not try to Turn it ON to see if it works . Should immediately remove the Battery , also SIM  and Media Card. We should place it in a bag of Uncooked rice which absorb the moisture . Should leave it for atleast 3 to 4 days unless we are sure that moisture has been completely absorbed . Then we should place our BlackBerry on any heat emitting surface like stabilizer , Or in the dashboard of a car on a sunny day. Before inserting the battery we should be sure that it is completely dry.

 

Have you done this after your device got wet ?

 

Still after following those steps it is not guarantied that our device will be trouble free and will perform as earlier , because when moisture or any liquid substance enter our BlackBerry  it starts corrosion which leads to problem like quick battery drainage , problem in typing and many more .

 

In all condition we should try to avoid our BlackBerry from any moisture intrusion or any liquid.

 

So if you ask me my personal opinion then my advice will be to buy a new device or even a used one will work better then repairing your water damaged device .

Hi emma

 

It's a good decision to visit a repair shop , but first ask them about repair charges , if it's more then average then you should go for a new device or even a used one . Sometime repairing a water damaged device cost much and even that repair shop will not guaranty about the long term success . So invest your money wisely.
