Does the phone still have a vailed warranty? If so inform the developers and they will send you another. I the warranty has expired unscrew the back and gain access into the keypad, check the circut board for and miss soldurings and if you can't find any put it back together and take it to a repair shop

I didn't drop this phone near water but felt the moisture was the issue with hot summer temps. with the 8330 bb, none of the buttons (only trackball worked- no buttons) Leaving it in rice for a day didn't work at all.
On the last resort attempt, believe it or not, the oven trick did!
1. preheated for 200˚F
2. turned off oven
3. took battery out of BB
4. placed on plate
5. left bb for exactly 20mins in closed oven
6. once i took bb out I waited 5 mins and then placed battery and turned on.
7. worked like a charm

SOURCE: I have a clarion nx501.
Please read my post here: http://community.crutchfield.com/forums/p/22187/251957.aspx (pasted below).
I hope you bought your unit at a Clarion dealer....
Hi, (Team Crutchfield - please add this to your knowledg-base.)
I'm on my third NX501 (could have been the fourth if not for working directly with Clarion).
The SD Card corruption causes both loss of Navigation and intermittent Sirius start up (it'll never acquire signal).
Your unit needs to use the exact micro sd card it came with forever (it has a permanent serial number).
You have two choices:
1. Get Crutchfield to replace the unit
2. Call Clarion (I suggest this rather than ripping your dash apart over and over).
Here's what to do. Contact:
Customer Service Technical Representative
Clarion Corporation of America
800-347-8667 ext 4342
Direct Line: 310-217-4342
Ben will have you send your microsd and rebuild it for you and return it (likely with the firmware upgrade that addresses this issues on another microsd that can also be found here: http://clarion.com/ca/en/support/navigation_updates/NX501Fupdate/index.html).
While you're at it, update the Bluetooth firmware too: http://www.clarion.com/us/en/support/software/NX501/index.html
Once you get the card returned (THIS IS HUGELY IMPORTANT - EVERYONE WITH A Clarion NX501 SHOULD DO THIS!!!), back it up using Naviextras toolbox (the program clarion uses for map updates). You can get it here: https://clarion.naviextras.com/shop/portal/downloads
Once you follow these steps, barring your micosd physically or logically self destructing, you'll have an NX501 that's nearly problem free and backed up just in case that unfortunate corruption reoccurs.
Of Note: Ensure you insert the microsd card with the contacts facing up and do not force anything.
I'm extremely confident this will make a world of difference for you (and anyone suffering the microsd corruption of the Clarion NX501).
