I just want to know if I screwed up my warranty by taking apart my e260. all i did was take the back cover off and the face plate so it could dry; it went through the washing machine =( =(. I’ve only had it for a few days plz tell me my warranty isnt gone.
WOW! Nevermind, I guess it still works. I did the wrong thing and tried to turn it on while it was still wet and it did not work. But then I let it dry out because I thought there was still hope and while I was putting battery back in… bright blue light! I guess I got lucky lol; the screen did look a little funky though. Maybe it is still drying off, maybe not. So I guess I should still see if where my warranty stands.
sounds like its voided…
putting it inside washing machine is not ‘normal device operation’ lol
ok lol, well at least i know it still works
My daughter’s e260 was put through the washing machine a couple of months ago, too. We took it apart & dried it as well and it did work …for a while. I was impressed that it did anything at all after a thorough soak in the washer! Oh, and that funky screen thing will get better over time, so don’t worry about it.
Anyway, I was looking through the forums today because my daughter’s has stopped working. It started by saying the battery was low (even after charging), so we ordered a new battery. That didn’t change anything. So…I am trying to decide what to do next. I put it in recovery mode, but it didn’t seem to do anything when I updated the firmware. Now I can’t get it to even come on at all. After reading some of the postings, I don’t know if this recent issue has anything to do with it getting wet. Did you find out anything about your warranty? Are these things like cell phones & have indicators in them that show if they have been wet or not?
ouch! Thats a tough one lev.
At least its clean though!
no pun intended. But yeah, sounds like your warranty may be voided.
A technical detail:
You may only take off the back cover, if you take apart anythign else, that automatically voids the warranty.
Hope this helps
