Question about Nokia 3100

1 Answer

Problem with the screen

My phone fell down from the shelf as long as some other heavy things that they probably fell on top on the phone and they damaged the screen. It looks like sort of demagnitized. I cannot read anything from the screen except the very little top part. I need to find a way to restore it so I can save my contacts. I found that they are selling LCD screens for $27 on ebay but I am not sure if I will be able to install it easily. I was wondering if there is another solution. Thank you in advance

Re: Problem with the screen

Usualy all of your contacts will be saved on the sim card, in a small compartment under the battery that you pull open by lifting a little hinged metal bended piece. On some occasions it will also be saved on the phone memory, but I'm sure that at least most of your contacts will be on the sim. About a 27$ screen - that may be so, but over here you can buy the phone itself for 50 euro (=60 $ more or less), so if you can get it that cheap in your area, it might be worth to save the hassle of ebay and the chance that you won't be able to replace the screen, or that you damaged other parts along with it. Good luck

Turn off all and reboot again.
The previous is just suggestions.
Good luck!!

I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace. When the alarm went off, I pressed the home menu key as I picked the phone up, and was then unable to get to the screen where I could turn the alarm off. After a couple of...

GALAXY ACE-HOW TO TURN ALARM OFF - Hi, you've probably figured it out by now but just for any other new users who are still struggling, here is the answer: Galaxy Ace : When your alarm is going off and you lose the screen option to either snooze or dismiss, simply look in the top left of the phone and you will see the little alarm icon with an exclamation mark on it, on the top bar where the signal strength indicator and the battery icon is. You can scroll your finger down over this top bar and move it down over the top of your current screen, and when the alarm is ringing, the option to either snooze or dismiss the alarm also appears on this pull down screen. Peace at last!! Hope this helps someone.....

My handset fell down yesterday and the display is gone.Though I can receive and make calls


When the handset fell down, the flex that connect the screen and the panel has shift. Get a screw driver, unscrew the phone and try to adjust the screen.

If after doing his the problem continues you need to change the screen of the phone.

The display circuit strip least probably is damaged or most probably is loose from the connector. in either way contact the local vendor to plug it back into the connector between screen n motherboard of the phone. it ll be fixed.
