Hi , there is problem with my phone volume. I can


First of all, a temporary solution is for you to use a earpiece. You plug it on your phone and you will be able to hear the callers clearly.

If your phones main speaker is working, then it is the earpiece speaker that is bad. All you have to do is to replace the speaker with a new one. There are two speakers on this phone, one in front, which is the part where you get to listen to your callers from, then another speaker that plays your audio files and receive your calls on speaker mode.

To disassemble the phone, follow the steps below:
  1. Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Six screws need to be removed,
  2. Run something like a credit card around the join of the battery compartment to release it from the rest of the phone.
  3. Now remove the two screws and you'll be able to lift away the metal plate with the identification sticker on.
  4. A ribbon connector needs to be detached. This attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever it up to unplug. You can now lift the circuit board away from the rest of the phone.
  5. Remove the eight screws you can see. These screws hold the slide part in place.
  6. You can now lift the slide part away from the rest of the phone. Four screws now need to be removed. The two on the left are covered with black stickers which can be easily removed.
  7. Now run your plastic tool all the way round the join of the front cover in order to release it.
  8. Three ribbons need to be disconnected. The two left and right attach like a plug and socket. Just lever each up to unplug. The ribbon in the middle has a different connection. To release it just flick the black latch up and pull the ribbon cable away from its socket. You can now lever the LCD screen out of the front cover.
  9. Then you see the earpiece and where it is connected to, just disconnect it, replace it with a new one, then you reverse the process to reassemble the phone back together.
Take care and good luck.

NB: When making a call, do not put it on speaker yet, then you increase the volume from the side of the phone where you have the volume button. If you do not hear the person calling you, then you replace the earpiece with the steps above.

I have nokia 7230 mobile phone iwant to do security code wht should do

go to menu then click settings, security, change security code, type 12345 (default security code). after this step the phone will ask you to enter a new code after this, you will be asked to verify the code (need to retype your new security code then) then, your code is changed.

to activate the security code for your phone to use:

1. go to settings
2. choose security
3. choose security level
4. choose phone
5. restart your phone

after the restart, you will be asked to type first your new personalized security code before you can use your phone.

My sony ericsson w595 turns off when i flip open it

Hi,the problem you are experiencing with your phone is as a result of a weak flex connector has to be replaced,here's a detailed solution on how to replace the cable. STEP 1. Tools required: Phillips screwdriver, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card.
  • Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card.
STEP 2. Run something like a credit card under the metal plate at the top of the phone. It is stuck down tight with double sided tape but it will come away with a little force.
  • Starting near the top of the phone, run your credit card along the join of the front cover. When you have released the cover as much as shown below, slide the cover down to remove it (clips hold the cover on at the bottom which will be bent if you don't slide the cover off).
STEP 4 You should now have the front cover removed. Remove the small screw you can see. STEP 5
  • With the slide open halfway, lift the up the part you've just removed the screw from to reveal three ribbon connectors. Each connector has a black latch which you need to flick over the release the ribbon
  • STEP 6
  • You now have the LCD screen removed. You don't need to go any further if you only want to replace the LCD.
  • STEP 7
  • Remove the speaker and connecting ribbon etc. It's just stuck down lightly. Remove the two screws you can see at the top of the phone.
  • STEP 8
  • You now need to lift the keypad up. It's stuck down lightly with double sided tape. Remove the two screws you can see.
  • STEP 9
  • Run your credit card around the join of the grey part of the phone to release a number of clips. Turn the phone over and release a few more clips in the battery compartment.
  • STEP 10
  • Your phone should now look like below. Two small bezels (shown in the picture) will pop off when you remove the back part of the phone. Now remove the two silver screws you can see.
  • STEP 11
  • You can now remove the battery compartment. A ribbon is stuck to the side of this and will peel away quite easily. Remove the two screws you can see.
  • STEP 12
  • The circuit board will now be loose but still connected by a ribbon. Again, flick the black latch over to release the ribbon.
  • STEP 13
  • Disassembly is complete. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
