Question about Nokia 3230

1 Answer

Won't turn on

I bought my Nokia 3230 about 4 months ago on a visit to Ukraine. I came back from Ukraine (to Canada) 2 months ago....The phone has been dead for 2 months now. Shortly after I came, when I tried to turn it on..I would only see a white flash (3 secs or so) on the screen (happens before it starts up), but there was no startup....Curious thing was if I pressed the "turn on" button, and while the screen was still white, plugged it in to charge...It would stay white for as long as It was plugged it. When I plugged it out, it dissapeared. Now it's totally dead....It doesn't even react to the "turn on" button....If anyone knows what the problem with it is, I'd really like to know...I've grown to like the phone and would not like to throw it away.

Thanks,
Vlad

You should take the phone to a mobile service center and have them try to revive your dead board but i think you may need to purchase a new mainboard or new phone.

Blank white screen, then off after 10 sec.


Try using a different battery. If that doesn't work, phone's IC must be damaged. Get the phone checked from a Nokia service centre.
