Question about Samsung SPH-a660/VI660

Fell too many times

Hi, My phone has been dropped one too many times. Recently I noticed a piece from the front was missing which helps it to close (just a small piece by where the little light flashes). Today the whole top came right off, after doing some internet research, I think the "OEM Flex LCD Ribbon cable is snapped". I really don't know anything about fixing a cell phone. Is this worth fixing. I also found an ad for someone selling the same phone for cheap. Might it be a good idea to buy the other phone and use the parts I need? Please help! Thanks, Mary

Re: Fell too many times

HI Mary As you know that most small cell phone case was made by plastic. Therefore, if you has droppd so many time, the impact causes most damage to the hinges and connector and if you love your phone then you can purchase the OEM housing on Ebay and have someone to replace it. The OEM LCD ribbon is always paired with the main LCD so if you purchase this cable, you should have the LCD as well. However, since you dropped the phone too much, it is not worth to fix if you don't know how. I can fix the phone and can replace anything in it but I still prefer to get the new one since even I know how to fix, parts and time to spend is already cost more than the new phone ususally cheap today if you need to use as a communication tool not entertainment tool or work one like PDA, Smartphone. Phone has too many time dropping will not work well one day and can die anytime. so buy a new one and keep this as replacement part. good Luck. Regards, Jospeh

Recently, people are saying they can barely hear me when I talk on my LG neon. I use my bluetooth and its just fine. Dropped it on the ground like a week ago but these problems started a couple days ago.


The problem is that the mouth piece of your phone is bad that is why the cannot hear your voice.
I advice you get the mouth piece of your phone replace because it is bad and that is why your callers cannot hear you.

All you need to do is to change the mouth piece of your phone and you will see that your callers will hear after you have replace the mouth piece of your phone.

Meanwhile, you can get hands free pending the time you will replace the mouth piece of your phone.

Take care.

The microphone of my cell phone isn't working


since it fell down, the mouth piece (microphone) must have shifted from its right position or loosed contact from the phone board.

You need to loose the phone and set the mouth piece to the right position and the problem would be resolved.

Take care.

Main display screen flashing in and out every 5 seconds

Best to take it in to AT&T. There are two VERY small metric size allen screws when you take the battery out. I have sand in my phone and I cant get it out. Driving me nuts. I dropped it and it fell between my horses front hooves. Lucky he didnt step on it! I am hoping they can open it and dump the sand out. If not, I have insurance. Or I'll by the same dang phone at Target as a pay as you go and put my SIM card in it. It works, AT&T told me I can do it as long as it is an AT&T phone!

Front keys on my phone won't respond

My phone did this. It was six months old and Verizon replaced it no questions asked. They ship you a new phone and you have ten days to mail the old one back so you have time to take them both to the store and let the tech move the contacts over.

"Bolt" replacement on Razor Phone

Be very carefull with the phone. The main cable runs through that left side.

Look on Ebay for a Left hinge pin for the V3. Also knows as the left knuckle.

Make sure you look for the V3. Not Razr.

If your speaker goes out, or you lose display before you get the Knuckle, you need to get a keypad flex also.

If not, get the Knuckle, and it just slides in. MAKE SURE before you pop it in that there are no pieces of the old one in there and that you don't pinch that cable.

I can fix it for you if you send it to our business, but if you're careful, you shouldn't have a problem.

Phone doesn't turn on, randomly shuts off

The same thing is happening to me and I didnt drop my phone at all... and this is the replacement phone from my insurance that I just got 2 weeks ago... My old razor would blank screen and I didn't do anything to that one either... I think they're just crappy phones now.
