My daughter has an lg c300 mobile phone when i try to ring her or anyone tries to ring her she can hear us but we cannot hear her. any solutions


hello

The mouth piece of the lg c300 phone is bad. It is the mouth piece that will enable you to hear from her.

You need to replace the mouth piece of the phone. Open the phone the with a screw driver, the mouth piece is located at the place were normally put her mouth when she talks on phone. Remove it, take to the store and my the exact type of mouth piece to replace with the old one.
Couple the phone and use it. i am sure it will work.

Note, before replacing the mouth piece, clean the pannel where the mouth piece is place with methylated spirit and allow it to dry. couple the phone and try if it works if the problem continues, then try the first method given above.

Thanks for your patronage

LG VX5300 Flip Phone broke in half.


Hello,

Your phone can work again, all you need to do is to get the flexi cable and fix it back in place.

It is not expensive.

It is about $15.

To fix this, these are the processes to follow;
  1. Get the appropriate screwdriver,
  2. Turn your phone over so the battery cover is facing you. Remove the battery cover and battery.
  3. Next remove the 2 rubber stoppers and unscrew the aerial.
  4. Remove the 6 screws,
  5. Next remove the 2 rubber stoppers & screws above the main screen,
  6. Prise the back part away from the rest of the phone by running your fingernail between where the two parts meet,
  7. Unclip the ribbon,
  8. After removing the ribbon cable, carefully lift the metal part that is beneath the phone. Another ribbon will be attached which should be carefully removed.
  9. Take the circuit board & keypad out and you'll be left with what's below it.
  10. Next remove the top part of the phone by pushing the housing in whilst pulling the hinge, which the top part is attached via, away from the phone. This is the hardest part and you'll need to bend and manipulate the housing the get the hinge out. Be firm but be careful so you don't snap the housing.
  11. To open the top half of the phone and get to the screen, run your fingernail between where the two parts of the housing meets,
  12. Try to open up the top part by splitting it open with a credit card,
  13. replace the ribbon and,
  14. Reverse the procedure for reassembly and it's finished.
Take care

I have sony ericsson w380i when i flip it open the screen is black but it still makes an recieves calls just cant see anything!!!


The flex cable from the display is shorting against the metal plate that supports it. The cable runs along the bottom of the display, and when the phone is closed, the buttons press against the display causing the wires to short against the metal.

Disassemble the top part of the phone, and place a piece of electrical tape along the bottom portion of the metal plate. This will solve the problem. Google "replace display sony ericsson w380". You should find instructions with photos about how to disassemble phone.

How do you change the faceplate on the nextel i95?


BASIC disassembly of your phone(i60/i90/i95)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This ONLY covers unscrewing the housing and splitting it open? that ALL. You'll need a T-8 torx driver for this.

Step 1: Turn you phone off, turn it over, take off your battery cover, take out your battery, and take out your SIM card. Be careful with your SIM card. Unscrew your antenna, remove it, and take out the metal antenna tube.

Step 2: Get your T-8 torx. Unscrew the THREE torx screws in the battery compartment. They are located in the bottom two corners and in the top left corner of the battery compartment.

Step 3: Peel back the right hand side of your ?Nextel? sticker just above the battery compartment. Peel it back ONLY A LITLE, until you expose the fourth torx screw. Use your T-8 torx to unscrew it.

Step 4: Carefully separate the two halves of the housing. BE CAREFUL, and keep in mind that at the top of the phone (near the flip hinge) there are cables still attached (the flip ribbon cable and the headphone jack). You will not be able to separate the two halves of the phone body all the way and will want to make sure to keep the top part of the housing relatively close together. If you screw up and damage the cables up there? don't try to blame us? we warned you.

Step 5: Do whatever it is you wanted to do that required you to split apart the housing in the first place (e.g. replace a keypad, PTT buttons, etc.), put the two halves of you phones body back together (carefully aligned) and screw the torx screws back in.

Step 6: Put your antenna, SIM, and battery back in, and you're done. Enjoy!

**Now let's talk about the flip. This ONLY covers the removal of the front and inside lenses of the flip. If you want to remove your flip completely, or remove the LCD of the i90. SEARCH the forum for info on how to do that. You'll need a T-6 torx, a SMALL flat-head screw driver, a hobby knife, and a blow-dryer for this.

Step 1: _This is optional, but is ideal for those nervous people out there who don?t want to take any chances. Remove your antenna and battery but put your battery cover back on.

Step 2: FIRST, open the flip. With the phone facing you (as if looking at your screen), look into the gap between the flip hinge and the phone body in the very center of the flip's hinge. You're going to see a small slot in there. Remember that slot? it's important.

Step 3: Close the flip and turn on your blow-dryer. Keeping the dryer about 4 inches from the surface of the front lens (the blue thing on the i95 or the silver thing on the i90) heat up the lens surface. Keep your blow-dryer moving around? DON'T concentrate it in one spot, you'll end up melting something. All you want to do is soften the glue a little. You don't need to use the dryer for too long to accomplish this. A minute or LESS should be fine, use your GOOD judgment.

Step 4: Once you have heated up the front lens enough to soften the glue underneath, quickly open the flip and use your small screw driver and poke it through that slot we talked about in step 2. You are pushing on the back-side of the front lens when you do this. BE GENTLE! You should be pushing the top of the front lens away from the top of the flip. Manipulate the phone in your hands as necessary so that you can hold the top of the front lens away from the phone. Remove your screw driver and close your flip (careful not to let the part you pushed away slip from your grip.)

Step 5: GENTLY pull the front lens away from the flip a little bit and use your hobby knife to cut away at the glue. BE CAREFUL not to knick or cut ANYTHING EXCEPT for the glue when you do this. In this process you will cut a little, and pull a little further away, cut a little, and pull a little further away. Continue this until you have completely removed the front lens. Once completely separated, make sure little to no contact is made with the glue on the back of the lens or the front of the flip. The more you touch it, and/or the more **** that falls onto it (dust or dirt or whatever) the less sticky it will be.

Step 6: Use your T-6 torx driver to unscrew the four torx screws on the front of the flip. These screw hold the inside flip lens down, so once they are out, be careful when you open your flip.

Step 7: Open your flip and gently remove the inside lens. BE CAREFUL. On the i95, the LCD is NOT glued to the inside of the flip. It is held in by the inside flip lens. You'll need to GENTLY remove it from the lens. If you're not careful.. you'll damage your ribbon cable and be screwed.

Step 8: Once your done doing whatever it is you wanted to do that required you to take your lenses off in the first place, just reverse the processes in step 7 and step 6 to attach your inside flip lens again. Then simply pres your front flip lens firmly back in place. If you were careful, the glue should be undamaged and would be PLENTY strong enough to hold your lens securely in place. Presto, you're all set! Enjoy!
