Question about Nokia 5120

1 Answer

Display not lighting up

My son squeezed my phone real hard and now the display won't light up. Several weeks later, the ringer started ringing at a lower volume. This volume lowering continued until now I cannot hear a ring at all. Can you tell me how to fix this? And what parts should I get? It would probably be cheaper to just get a new phone, but this one was my first cell phone given to me by my granddaughter and I would love to repair it and just save it for sentimental reasons.

Re: Display not lighting up

You need to repalce the LCD if the phone is open try reattaching the LCD and the buzzer. Also try and clean the contacts with an eraser, it will work. Good Luck.

The phone won't ring. How do I make it ring? I have gone to settings, sounds, ringer and alerts. When I click on that, the phone makes a ringing sound, but when calls come in, it is silent. Please...

Have you checked the switch on the top left of the phone?
That's the mute switch. Flip it in the Up position and that should fix your problem
If the phones ringing when you test the ringer in the settings, the ringer works. It's probably just muted..
I hope that helps...
Thank you

Phone won't ring. Checked everything.

Hi, When a phone does not ring out, it is usually a fault from either the ringer or from the flex of the phone.

The ringer is like a some object inside the phone that makes aloud noise and it set as your ringing tone for calls..When it gets damaged,it will not make any sound..Till it gets replaced..

The flex is a thread like object inside the phone that make the screen display,some sony ericsson flex phones some flex controls both the ringer and the phone..

So first you will need to disassemble the phone and test the ringer inside the phone (round in shape),by using a meter..

After testing then you will know the problem from there if it's from the ringer or from the flex..

Hope that helped..

The ringer doesn't ring, only vibrates. I select "settings" but there is not ringer volume level so I can hear the phone actually "ring', it only vibrates

First, make sure your Jitterbug is open and confirm it's on.

Next, Press the volume button on the outside of the phone below the Outside Display. Press the top of the button to increase the volume and the bottom of the button to decrease the volume.

There are several ringer options available to choose from. If you need additional help, you can call a customer service expert available 24 hours a day 7 days a week at 1-800-733-6632 and they will walk you step by step through the process.

How do you get the jitterbug phone off vibrate and to ring?

First, make sure your Jitterbug phone is turned on and open. While looking at the inside screen, adjust the volume by using the rubber volume button, which can be found on the outside of the phone. Press the top of the button to increase the volume and the bottom of the button to decrease the volume. The inside screen will display the ringer volume level. The ringer volume ranges from Vibrate to Max.

If you need additional help, you can call a customer service expert availalbe 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-800-733-6632 who will walk you step-by-step through the process.

Ringer problem

Hi, problem can be solved... The flex of the phone make ringer to function. When you replace the flex of the phone it will start ringing out. The flex is located close the screen and allows the screen to display and also controls the ringer. When the flex is damaged it will affect both the screen and the ringer of the phone.

When you replace the flex of the phone, phone will work perfect again.
if you have any question,you can send me a comment.

Thanks for using fixya.
