Question about Sanyo PM-8200

1 Answer

No signal after replacing screen and casing...

My Sanyo screen had been smashed So, I replaced the the whole top part of the phone along with the rest (I switched everything, but I kept the same board.) Now I cant seem to get more than 1 bar, usually the phone will have none. What happened?? I was wondering if it was a compatability issue, or if it is an easy fix?? Please anyone, I cant stand not being able to figure it out myself... I appreciate ALL help! Thanks

Re: no signal after replacing screen and casing...

I would double check all the connections. Sounds like the antenna may not be connected properly.

I have a nokia n95 and my screen started flicking and started going funny.Sometimes the screen doubles up the picture and then went off and buttons freeze.Its not broke or smashed.Over the last week now i...


The problem is not from a virus or a software update. It is a hardware problem, the problem is that the flex of the phone is weak, that is why it is acting that strange.What You have to do is to replace the flexi ribbon that connects the screen to the main board of the phone. To do that, please follow the steps below:
  1. First remove the battery cover, battery and memory card. Move the slider down and remove the two screws you see.
  2. Now move the slider up and remove the two screws at the top of the phone.
  3. Run your fingernail along the edge of the join of the front cover to unclip it.
  4. You should now have the front cover removed. The keypad should be loose as well.
  5. Flip the keypad part back to access the ribbon which connects the LCD to the phone.
  6. The screen is attached to the circuit board by a ribbon which attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift the connector up to unplug it.
  7. Take off the screen,
  8. Disassemble the rest of the phone to be able to gain access to the back of the socket where you disconnected the screen from,
  9. It is the relay ribbon that is the flex,
  10. Replace it with a new one and reverse the process to reassemble the phone back together.
That is how to replace the flex, after fixing the flex, the phone will work perfectly fine once agin. Hope this helps. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

Screen replacement


To replace the screen, carefully follow the process below.

  • Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Four screws need to be removed.
  • After removing the screws, then you run a credit card along the sidelines of the phone so seperate the front and the back of the phone,
  • Unscrew the rest of the screws you will see,
  • Lift up the panel of the phone, then detach the flexi ribbon that connects the screen to the main panel,
  • Lever up the screen with the credit card.
  • Replace it with a new one,
  • Reverse the process to reassemble the phone.
Take care and good luck

Dropped LG VX 5500 in water. Screen no longer lights up. Can receive and make calls. But cannot see screen.


When it fell in water, it entered the screen and damaged it that is why the screen is not lighting up.

The solution to that is to replace the screen, to get to the screen follow the process below:
Turn your phone over so the back is facing you. Remove the battery. Now remove the 4 screws,
These screws may be covered by some plastic covers. These simply peel off.
Next remove the 2 rubber stoppers & screws above the main screen,
Now remove the two screws below the main screen,
Run a fingernail along the join of the housing to unclip it,
The top of the phone should now be in two pieces,
Unclip the ribbon. This attaches like a plug and socket,
Now detach the top of the phone from the bottom. This involves a little force as it is a tight fit,
Double back the ribbon on itself so it is away from the LCD screen,
Use the screwdriver to lever the old screen out,
Replace the old screen with new and reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.

Take care and good luck

What you have to do is simple.
1. Remove the battery cover, battery and SIM
2. Use the screwdriver or tweezers to gently pry off the RF grommet located on the antenna cap (below)

  • Removing the antenna cover:
    3. Carefully use the flat end of the tweezers to release two latches on the top end of the antenna cover, then carefully lift the antenna cover away from the phone.
  • Removing the transceiver PC board shield:
    4.Using the T5 screwdriver, remove the 6 housing screws from the phone. Set the screws aside for re-use (see Figure 10).
    5.Lift the metal shield away from the phone.
  • Removing the housing:
    6. Insert the plastic shim between the front housing and the chassis assembly. Slide the plastic shim around the phone between the front housing and the phone to release the housing catches along the sides of the front housing
  • Removing the housing:
    7. Carefully lift the bottom end of the front housing over the phone. The earpiece will still be connecting the front cover to the rest of the phone at the top of the phone so be careful
  • Removing the earpiece speaker from the front housing:
    8. Use the plastic shim or tweezers to separate the earpiece speaker from the front housing
  • Removing the LCD screen:
    9. Use the tweezers to release the display module assembly latch located at the side of the display module
  • Removing the LCD screen:
    10. Lift up the top edge of the display module
    11. Carefully thread the display flex cable through the slot in the chassis assembly and lift the display module away from the chassis
Replace the old screen with new an
d reverse the whole procedure for reassembly

Take care
