U700 touch keys

I have a u700. its been working fine for months, suddenly, my touch keys, wheel, and middle button key will not work when it is slid up. when slid down and unlocked, it works perfectly fine. When i raise it all the way up, it will not work, sometimes if yu wait a little bit it will work, but if yu lower the slide about half a centimeter, the lights on the touch pad turn off. and lower it a little more and the reappear. Other problems is that the screen will sometimes turn black while the phone is on, the colors will invert and the screen will mirror itself, etc. I have tried a reflash, and it doesnt help. Can anyone help me with this problem? is it the flex cable, is a wire loose? hellppp~

The FLEX (white film strip inside your sliding phone) is already worn out. if your phone is still covered by warranty, it will be replaced for free by any samsung mobile service center, but if not, you have to pay for its replacement..

In my case... I wait until the screen like sleep and screen is like turned off. then when i press the middle button everything will be back in its form. While in the case of black screen while turned on... I just wait for a couple of minutes and it will all go back to its form.

Why suddenly wont my key turn in my ignition?

Try turning the steering wheel a bit and holding it so that it takes pressure off locking mechanism. Then turn key. When I first got my 530 I had to call the dealer to figure this out.
Hopefully it works for you.

"front" of phone doesnt work

Try opening up that "front" cover of your phone (if you dare) and check if anything's blocking the connection. Sometimes it might even be the inner part of it spoilt.

Touch Keys and Screen

I think this a problem related to the flex cable that connects the main phone body to the sliding screen. Over time the flex cable wears down as it slides and results in a whole range or problems such as: display acting weird (eg. mirror-image and inverted colours), speaker not working, off-button not working etc.
Flex cables are cheap to buy on ebay (a few dollars) and there's internet sites that show you how to open the phone and replace them. (google: samsung u700 replacement flex cable)

My SGH-U700 touch sensitive keys and the function keys are not working. i can see the screen, and i can enter number. please help?

Usually the pins on the FLEX shorts out when liquid gets between the connectors and dries. Or the connectors are just loose, this is because you don't take good care of your phone.

Well you have to let someone replace/reconnect/check the FLEX of the phone, Replace cost's around $20-$40 (or around 200-500Php)
