Question about Samsung SGH-t629 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Phone stopped working suddenly

I have had this phone for almost 2 years. i have never had any major problems with it. EXCEPT, yesterday, i opened the phone, and the screen didn't light up. i pressed the end button, and then the screen worked. as i closed the phone, i noticed the screen blink, at a certain spot in the slider it would go black, and then come back on. after about 2 hours it reversed itself, to the point that the screen only worked at a certain point, not open, and not closed. then the phone shut off, and will not power back on.

This sounds like a flex cable issue. You will need to have a tech examine the device to see if the flex cable needs replacement.

The flex cable is the ribbon cable that connects the screen to the rest of the electronics and allows the slider mechanism to slide and have the device maintain proper electrical connection. After two years it may very well be worn out.

    Cell phone spare parts are a hit and miss sort of thing. Check your local shop, check the world's largest on-line auction site. See what you can find. Good luck!

Problem with the incoming and missed calls in Motorola Silver L7

you must have to make reset to factory default, go to the MENU, and ask to restore. see your owner manual, or download from your supplier company or go to www. and get it.
However you must try to see if the battery charger adapter is o.k or battery this is very importante, because this would be a problem . test it.Otherwise the software is corrupted.

You might not have the correct operator settings. Contact your network provider to update your settings, especially if you just got the plan for your phone.
