I have a Nokia 500 on which a friend of mine accidentally (read 'idiotically') spilled tea and it's touch screen stopped responding.
Obviously the warranty is void now and I am not willing to spend a lot of money on it either by sending it to the Nokia care centre. I tried changing the touch screen panel but it didn't work - either the panel I got was also faulty or there is some other issue in the phone itself.
Any ideas where the problem might lie if it is not the touch screen panel?
I think you can't say that this is an issue of the Nokia 500 since your phone experienced a water damage. maybe because of that the phone might not function the way it use to be. Sending it to a care point would be the best solution to get this fix..
