Question about Nokia N95 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Gps connection My N95 has just come back from repair (lcd leak) and I can no longer get a gps connection. The satellites appear to be there, but I can't get to my GPS pos on the maps. The software seems to have been upgraded during the repair.

    Thanks, on the way to work I had the map feature on for 40 minutes or so, and still didn't get anything - I have just phoned vodafone, and got through surprisingly quickly. They think it might have been reset to factory settings (not sure why that should be a problem) and have just sent me new settings. Just got to wait until I go outside again to try them out.

    Thanks - I'll try that

It can take a long time to get a GPS fix for the first time on a phone, either when new or after repair, as the memory will have been wiped. Leave the phone somewhere with a good view of as much sky as possible, with the GPS active for half an hour, and it will download the satellite data again. Then next time it should get a fix more quickly.

If your phone has an application for assisted GPS that downloads the satellite data from the internet, try running this.

Sometimes, there can also just be bad times for getting a fix, if the satellite geometry is bad.

    Make sure you leave the phone somewhere still for a long time. GPSs often take longer to get a fix when they are moving.



    Maybe try restarting the phone and leaving it somewhere as suggested?

N95 slider problem . LCD goes blank on sliding . it appears that there is problem in Strip. do u get separate strip or it comes alongwith slider....


No the Slider strip doesn't come separately because the strip is merged permanently to a circuit that has your earpiece ,light sensor,and front camera you cannot seperate it in any manner because the only unlockable part over there is the LCD screen .i would recommend you to get your phone serviced from nokia care only because the strip is the most important part in a slider .. even if you get a local strip installed from a local mobile repair center it wont last for a month ..even i had the same problem 4 months back ..because quality of the strip matters .......

NOKIA N95 8GB NO DISPLAY BKEY PAD LIGHTS ON


The LCD display has most likely failed or the internal connection to it has been dislodged.

Without special tools and equipment there is nothing you can do to fix this properly, although a dislodged connector can sometimes be temporarily reseated by giving the phone a sharp sideways tap. Doing this can also completely dislodge the connector, but as the display no longer works you have nothing to lose.

If the sharp tap solution brings the display back then all you've done is to confirm that you probably won't need a new LCD display but either way the phone will still need a professional repair.

Sorry to disappoint you but sadly not everything is fixable on a DIY basis.

Screen has gone black, but phone still works


Your LCD could have loosen its connection with your cellphone's motherboard or you already got a bad LCD that needs replacement. Also, if there s no light from the lcd at all, you might also need to change the bulb.

Try to gently press both sides of the lcd, if screen will appear. If you can no longer make it appear by pressing at any sides, then you need to take it to a mobile repair center and have the faulty parts replaced.

GPS for china mobile


For china mobiles manuals, software and drivers check chinamanuals.com (check for CECT N95)
I don´t think there is a GPS available, because the N95 does not support java.

N95 slow GPS


hey! i've found out no need to hack hardware or use a-gps. open GPS data in connectivity folder , look at satellite status and hold the phone far from your body. I always get lock in less than 1 minute. then exit GPS data and open nokiamaps. Garmin also locks faster than nokia maps, so i suspect the problem is in nokia maps sotware. I put GPS data icon in active stanby applications for quick launch.
