N 6288 Blank Screen and skewed graphics

I think the ribbon on my phone is damaged as when I open or close the slider the graphics sometimes skew or the screen goes blank, sometimes coming back and sometimes not. Also the 4 way button causes the same sometimes. How do you get in to the guts of the phone to take a look at the ribbon.

    same problem over here. screen is completly blank (black) even. power is on, all functions work. it is just a problem from the small lcd screen. the funny thing is that this happened to me over night, literally. when i went to bed I set the alarm clock on the phone, and in the morning (when it started ringing) the screen was all black. the battery in/out or sim in/out didn\t work for me. I'm gonna see a technician.

It just happened to me yesterday and all I did was to send my phone to a Nokia technician and he just replaced the ribbon in it and it is now perfectly fine!

The front screen of my Nokia 2720 is just blank, how do I get to work


The micro ribbon wire may be damaged if its blank if the phone is old this may be the case opening and closing breaks the ribbon wire after time. If it is new return for replacement. also in menu, phone, display is where all adjustments are.

Hi there. Our Canon ImageRUNNER 3235i has been skewing papers about for months. Service techs can't seem to find the problem as it is sporadic. Any suggestions?


Hello,
These can be a quite pain, this copier when it works it works it fine, but when it doesn't works it doesn't work with style.

Please give me more info, where the paper is skewing? in duplex assy or before or after the fixing unit or while going out of paper drawer...?

I had a problem that paper was skewing in duplex and I've chaneged the duplex vertical roller axis.

HOW DO YOU CORRECT A SKEWED COPY ON THE COPIER? HAVE CHANGED REGISTRATION ROLLERS, SKEW IS SAME FROM ALL TRAYS & BYPASS. TRIED ADJUSTING THE FOCAL LENGTH ON THE MIRRORS, AND STILL HAS ABOUT 1/8 INCH...


First you need to determine if it is optical skew or mechanical skew.
If the machine is used as a printer then do the computer prints come out skewed? If it is not connected to a PC then print out the counter list using UserTools/Counter. If that prints straight then you are dealing with optical skew. Ricoh's in general are bad about the left front corner of the machine drooping from someone pushing down on that corner. If you have optical skew try lifting up the left front corner of the copier and try making a copy. That might fix your problem.
If the UserTools/Couter print out is skewed then your back to a mechanical skew and there are numerous causes for that.
The optical skew is more likely so let's start there.

When I try to slide my phone open to type the display skews at an angle and becomes unreadable. If I close it back, part of the screen will go white. sometimes the top and bottom go white, but you can...


Maybe a magnet has come loose in the handset, Or you have exposed it to a magnet. Or there is a loose conection when you slide the handset. Either way you will need a new display

Blank display


You seem to have a issue with the Flex Ribbon Inside. The Display has a Flex ribbon that connects to the keypad area. there seems to be a fault with that ribbon. this is common problem with **** shell phones/ Slider phones.. best solution would be to take it to a repair shop. unless you have warranty.

Nokia 6288 screen problem


if you can dismantle your phone here is what u do to know.. 1st check if the ribbon its cut,, or been damage and that will be the solution change it, next if it is ok u still have to try new ribbon for it to check sometimes ribbons even if ther's no physical damage still faulty.. and then if u change it and its still the same u've got a problem either in lcd or your display ic, so u have to bring it to d tech. to save money for buying those unwanted parts.

Paper skewing


There should be an access door on the back of the printer. If you open this you can check the rollers to see if they are damaged or have debris on them.
