Panasonic SA-PT460 disc tray keeps opening. When system switched on disc tray opens, then closes and then opens and stays open. can't play a disc.



Original fault tray would not stay closed,opened up 460 case and then removed 2 screws on rear of drive. unplug 2 ribbon cables.
unscrew 1 screw in micro switch pcb rotate and spay cleaner into switch and rock switch several times until the reading across switch is 0 ohms before you start you will find the switch has about 2.5 k of resistance across it witch is too high.
as long as you have about 4ohms it will work.

The screen on my Samsung Intercept is black. The phone is on and working, but nothing shows up on the screen. Someone had advised us to fix the flexi ribbon in the phone. I need to know how to fix a flexi...

you will need to buy a "OEM Samsung Intercept SPH-M910 Motherboard Flex Cable Ribbon" they are 10 dollars good search that and an online store will pop up

then you need to dissemble your phone unscrew all your screws and take it apart, the ribbon cable dose not pull out it lifts off and insert the new one just take your time and be patient some parts need some force to come apart but not alot

here is a disassemble guide for an htc slider at 3:55 you see the ribbon cable

Picture rolls when view finder is fully open. When partially closed it stops rolling. Sometime it stops rolling when view finder is slowly opened to full position.

Most likely a ribbon cable with a bad connection on one or more of it's conductors. It requires dismantling the camera to expose both ends of the cable to check the plastic clamp connectors to this cable on both ends. Another possibility is a partially damaged ribbon cable making intermittent contact. If it's the cable, it requires a replacement. Do you feel you are capable of this level of service? If unsure, then best to leave to those who are comfortable with this type of work. Nimsgame

Any way to unfreeze the screen on a samsung behold. It lights up, but in is unresponsive.


Firstly, to unfreeze a samsung behold. Try to remove the battery and install it back in.

If that does not work, then you have to flash the phone with the appropriate cable and software.

If that also does not work, than you have to open the phone with the appropriate screwdriver and fix the flexi ribbon or cable.

The flexi cable is the ribbon that allows the screen receive information from the panel of the phone.

Take care

I can turn it on and off and use buttons on the side but the touchscreen doesn't work at all.


The reason the touch screen is not working is simply because there is a problem with the sensor board of your phone.

If i knew the specific kind of phone, i would have proffered a solution for it.

But the general solution to that, is to get the appropriate screwdriver and open the phone systematically,
Carefully locate the flexi ribbon cable that connects the screen to the panel of the phone.

Replace the flexi cable and reverse the process to reassemble your phone.

Take care

The screen is all white

You need to re-seat replace the ribbon cable that is connecting screen to main board. Possibly out place after unit was dropped.

hi friend,

go to website

Then consider changing the Flexi PCB (ribbon). This is a common failure as the ribbon can suffer wear as the phone slider opens and shuts. Eventually the ribbons become worn and often this results in a screen failure. Changing the ribbon can cure this in most cases... We advise that a new ribbon is added when the screen is changed it’s a good way to service this type of part. So if you do have a screen problem including a screen failure then consider changing this part before you spend good money on a screen.

thank u for using fixya

The swivel screen displays an image until it is partially opened.

It is the flexi/ribbon cable that runs from the camera body to the screen that is at fault. It has got broken tracks.
It might work occasionally when the tracks are touching but after a while it will only get worse. A new ribbon cable is needed, which should be a straight forward job for a repair shop or if you can get the cable yourself, an electronics wizz kid !
