Question about Samsung SGH-t629 Cellular Phone
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.
