Re: Front Screen Not working in Nokia9300i
I would try to take off the phone covers and take off the screen. You will need a Torx T6 screwdriver or similar to do this. Once the screen is off, you can clean the contacts with one of those plastic pencil erasers. Put everything back together and see how it goes. You will need to be careful of the screen positioning.
I've done this with other Nokias (not had to with my 9300 yet) as I find the dust gets in and collects round the contacts...
If no joy, get a broken 9300 from an auction site or similar, one with a broken internal screen maybe, and have a go at swapping the screens.

It could be a connection problem. Try this steps:
1) Turn off your Ericsson, then turn over the unit. Slide down the battery door and pull it off the unit. Lift the battery out of its compartment and set it aside.
2) Run your fingernail along the seam where back cover meets the body of the unit to pop it out of place. Remove the back cover and set it aside.
3) Remove the two screws from the top corners of the back of the phone.
4) Turn your phone right-side up and run your fingernail along the seam where the front cover meets the body of the phone. Pop the cover out of place and set it aside.
5) Lift the keypad, located just below the screen, up from its side and place it to the side of the unit.
6) Remove the two screws on the metal plate just underneath where the keypad used to sit. Remove the metal plate and set it aside. The orange screen cable will now be visible just below the screen, connected to a port on the green circuit board.
7) Unplug the screen cable and plug it back in, making sure it is secure in the port. This should fix the connection problem with the screen. Reverse the steps for reassembly.
just try this.. enter service menu by pressing jog dial up, *, jog dial down, jog dial down, *, jog dial down, *.
jog dial is rounded things at the right side of the p1, slide it up or down, follow the instruction.
then enter the menu hardware test, lcd test, write something in ur touch pad, if the letter u wrote visible it mean ur lcd fine.. so , just close the menu and its magic.... its worked.
Hi,before replacing the screen,why don't you dry out the LCD screen to get rid of the moisture,you can use a hand dryer to dry out the moisture of the screen after taking it out.If after drying the screen the problem remains,then you can go ahead to get a new screen.
Here is a detailed step on how to dissassemble your P1i;
Tools required: Torx 6 screwdriver, Phillips size 0 screwdriver
First remove the battery cover, battery, memory card and stylus. Remove the three screws you see
Run your fingernail around the join of the back cover and then pry the back cover off
Now remove the two screws you can see at the top of the phone
Now run your fingernail along the join of the front cover and you'll hear the clips, which hold the cover on, click. The front cover is on quite tight so use some force to pry the cover off
Remove the keypad and lift the part underneath from right to left, this will reveal two more screws. Remove these screws
Remove the metal plate that the screws were holding in place and you now have access to the ribbon which attaches the screen to the circuit board
Detach the ribbon to remove the LCD screen. The ribbon attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift the ribbon up away from the circuit board to detach it
You have now removed the LCD screen
then you dry,
Reverse the whole process to reassemble.
However,the LCD screen costs $92.if you have the reason to purchase it.
Thanks and take care
Did the phone drop from you? anyway, the screen of your Bold 9000 is malfunctioning, i suggest you get a torx 6 screw driver by your side.
Turn off your phone, remove the battery cover and battery.
Turn the fone over and remove the front cover with your screw driver, pull off the front cover and afirm the LCD screen very well to the panel of the phone, recouple back to test, if it is still same thing, i suggest you change the LCD screen of your Bold 9000.
But if you can do all this, i advive you get a technician or somebody who can do it for you.
HI, Just took T6 and took out the 4 screws and then carefully pulled off the front cover.Then Remove whole dust from it. But Be careful. Although the screen cover actualy comes off with ease using a little tool. Nokia have one called the SRT6 and is £8 from here:http://www.phatphones.com/nokia-srt6-phone-opening-tool.htm
Let me guess ... you dropped the phone at least once recently?
Well, I did the same, and the first three times I got it working by smaking it face-up on the table (literally!). However, this morning was the last straw, and I could not get it working again.
However, I now know this is an easily repaired problem that someone with very basic skills and tools can tackle. With the earlier crude remedy I suspected a loose contact, and this was confirmed by squeezing the phone just right between the power light and the speaker I got the backlighting to work. To fix it, the steps are:
- Remove battery cover - Remove battery - Start disassembly by removing top rear shell (the bit with the lens cover) by gently prising with a small screw driver. There are five catches - one middle left, one middle right right, one center bottom, two at the top +/- 1/2" from the edges. Gently remove the in the same direction as you would the battery. - Remove front shell by undoing 4 screws now visible on the rear of the phone, one at each corner. Itis a funny torque screw, but I used a small flat and it worked OK - Turn the phone face up. Right at the top and about 1" from the left there is a red screen connector (you'll see the copper of the screen's strip cable terminating there). Gently press down on this connector to reconnect, and Hey Presto! - While you're about it, remove all the dust and muck in the phone. - Reverse the steps for re-assembly
If you do not feel up to it, take the phone to an agent or repair shop with these instructions. It is a 5 minute job and they should charge accordingly!
Unfortunately, when it comes to touch-screens, it's much more difficult to fix.
The reason being that the screen is placed in the chassis of the device - with precision, so that none of the parts in the device or the chassis/cover of the device itself is applying any pressure to any point on the screen.
If there is any point on the screen which is being pressed by the cover of the phone or any part of the phone such as a wire or PC board, the screen will be reading TWO inputs whenever you push a button on the screen. Most touch screens will lock up if it detects two points of pressure...or it will pick one input and run with THAT one. (Hard to say if it chooses the first or the second input.)
I have a Dell handheld PDA that I can't put the cover back on as it works sporadically when I tighten the screws back down. I know the general region where the pressure is being applied, but no matter what I have done, it just won't work. (It's not worth my time, so I haven't really continued working on it for some time now.)
Sometimes when I flex or bend the chassis of the PDA and I use the stylus on the screen, it'll work for a while. But then you grip it in a certain way and it starts going crazy all over again. When I bend the chassis by twisting it a bit, it releives the point of pressure and I'm able to use it normally for a while. Sometimes I tap the sides of the device to knock the screen back into place. (Although that can be harsh on the device.)
Quite honestly? I would take that phone to a service center and either have them service it or replace it. (But you most likely voided any warranty you still had when you opened it; if any.)
Not much that can be said for it unless we could actually physically inspect it. But this is the internet. :P
Try jarring the screen or inspecting the bottom side of the front cover to see if there is any point that is touching the screen when you secure it. Try removing the screws in certain, contained areas in a slow manner to see if releiving pressure in those areas might show you where there may be something touching the screen. Take it from there. Might consider using a file to file down the area that is touching the screen.
First and foremost, though... Just check to see if the screen is centered right where it's supposed to be.
Good luck with that. I hate touch screen repairs. :P
