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!

My Akira Pedestal Fan stopped working suddenly

the major problem with fans is the bronze bushes that the armature runs in get dry from use and seize on the shaft. IF you are capable get to the bushes and you may find a piece of felt next to the bushes . Put some machine oil into the felt and spin the fan with your finger until it loosens up. Otherwise scrap it

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.

Ge electric dryer. suddenly stopped working. Will

Hi Stv,
There isn't really major problem, but a problem.
You will need to unplugged your unit and take it apart. Are you handy?
If and when the unit is apart look at the motor and the fan exhaust and see if there is a coin or screw is jamming the motor or the fan
while you are in there you may want to clean it up,
That should be the problrm

I have a Hailea pond pump about 1 1/2 years old which was working perfectly up till yesterday, suddenly it stopped working, according to the manual it says need to change the impeller. Can you tell me how...

the problem is things arent made to last anymore and if you replace the impeller then the chance of the motor burning out is high because pumps dont last long anymore and if you have a problem with one it the first year or 2 then thats all that pump is ment to last.

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.

  • please go to LG service centre rather than going to local repair centre.
  • as i think that they give first service at some concession rate.
  • i do not think it is much.
  • as no part in tv is that  costly
  •  except crt which is rarely fails in two years time.
  • please call them they will come to your home and will do that.
  • it is not major problem.
  • hope this will help
  • good luck.

GE SpaceMaker Microwave suddenly stops while heating

I had same problem last week. My GE JVM1650 Spacemaker stopped after a few seconds of heating. Owned 16 months, manufactured Jan 2005. It was the magnetron, which was replaced yesterday. The magnetron has a 10-year warranty, but I had to pay $161.00 for labor by a GE technician. The call-out fee was waived at my request. I don't know what that amount would have been, but I can't believe the $161.00 for what was about 1/2 hour labor once diagnosed. Good Luck!
