A few years ago I was carrying my 9210 in a plastic bag with some other stuff like a bottle of SPA (water) . The bag didn't leak , but the bottle wasn't closed tight enough . After some time I wanted to use the phone and I found it completely drowned in the bag . No working at all . I took out the battery , and after about one week drying in the sun (summertime) it was working again .
Advise : take out battery and dry the device , maybe you can use a hairdryer ?

Hi,

thanks for the reply-

I still have the phone and the most intriguing thing is that the problem is intermittent.

Sometimes number 2 doesn't work [along with *, gallery and camera and top right menu button] and sometimes it all works perfectly.

This suggests to me that the problem is 100% hardware and most likely a connection problem, possibly caused by corrosion or mineral deposits - making cleaning it the best option.

With this in mind, does anyone know where I might find expertise in this area. Where do all keypad functions input into the phone?

This guy has a good demo of dismantling an N95 8gb: http://www.noeman.org/gsm/hardware-f...cs-inside.html

but where would I want to examine/clean in order to correct this intermittent problem?

Guy open your phone and expose to the sun for some minute and close back.
Enjoy your phone.
