Nokia 7373, Powers up but the LCD displays 2 vertical lines.
My Nokia 7373 was dropped. Now when it powers up the screen displays 2 VERY thin vertical lines, 1 magenta and 1 green. There is no "startup" sound and no calls can be made. I have checked the ribbon conections to the LCD and all seems ok. Is this problem likely to be the LCD or something more serious. If it was just the LCD that was broken surely I would still get sound and the phone would still be able to make a call.

Re: Nokia 7373, Powers up but the LCD displays 2 vertical...
Your display circuit is broken, even if the LCD-panel,
seems to be ok the display is damaged.
Your broken display might shortcut your phone,
making it unaccessible with the broken display in place.
This is a very common problem in Nokia phones.
The only way to fix this is to change the display.
You need a T-6 Torx Skrewdriver to do the job.

LCD change on 7373. This will take you to the connector.
Switch off the phone.
Take SIM card out.
Take front faceplate off by inserting Credit card/Tweezers between housing and silver key. As you pull up, take credit card and slide it on the side of the phone prying the clips off. (Gently tease it out working around the phone)
Unscrew these 6 screws at the edges with the T6 screwdriver and release the 4 clips surrounding the LCD screen. Slip the little black frame off of the LCD screen, and lift the screen. (Prize it up gently from the swivel end of the mob.) There’s a printed circuit board underneath it is attached to the LCD by a hook type catch. Don’t damage it (the board). You should now see a screw. Removing this screw removes the back cover.
That’s it! Put your new faceplate or housing in and figure out how to put things back by following the directions here in reverse order.
You should use anti static gloves for this job, avoid touching the connections and the LCD face.
