  1. I did something amazingly stupid last week. I left my nokia 5210
    mobile charging in a thunderstorm and it will no longer charge. I
    have tested both the battery and charger on another phone and they
    both work. Also my phone will still work when the battery is charged.
    I am not really confident about opening the back of the phone.

    I wondered if anyone knows if I can charge the battery directly from
    the charge.

    Many thanks!

    The charge inverter, or regulator in the phone is damaged, or the micro fuse
    in the phone is opened. If the fuse is opened, there may be some damage as
    well. If you are equipped to work on the cell phones, you can open the phone
    and check this out.

    Normally when there is a complex defect on these boards, the service centre
    will change the complete board. They then do a re-phasing alignment of the
    board, and re-initialize it. Almost all the troubleshooting, set-ups, and
    alignments are done by software in these phones.

    Take care that when opening the phone, some of these models are disabled.
    The service centre has the system and to reinitialize the phone for jig
    testing, and operation.

    Matthew Snape engraved with a +2 athame:
    A regulator on the phone may be damaged or a microfuse may be open.
    Without special test equipment, you can't do much repair on a cell phone - some
    disable themselves when opened. Repair centers have special repair techniques.

    I have several 5120 boards, plus two complete phones in good shape. Email
    if you want one, cheap. Sanyo makes an external charger which has a cradle
    for the phone, plus a slot for the bare battery.
