PROBLEM WITH THE NOKIA 5300 XPRESS MUSIC

Hey Guys hope you can assist, I have the Nokia 5300 x-press music, I went to change the front and rear cover on the phone as the old one had marks, as I changed the cover there is a small gold looking little resistor thing and also a black small rubber rubber that goes on top of it (THIS IS ON THE FRONT COVER OF THE PHONE)I changed these and put them on the new cover as well, now all of a sudden I cannot be heard if I call someone , I can hear the person on the other end but they cannot hear me, I have tried making a call without any of the covers on and it is the same thing, so I am not to sure what I have done, please help if you can.

    The same sound problem just started on my Nokia 5300 tonight. Only I haven't opened any of its hardware, haven't dropped it, and haven't gotten it wet. My call recipients hear only static. I hear them perfectly.

    The screen is EASILY replaced for $20 bucks or less. Just go to ebay, and search nokia 5300 lcd screen. I got a replacement and it took me 2 minutes to replace a cracked screen!! I was sooo happy I did not need a new phone.

Aol videos has a repair solution for the microphone,,,,thier is a small connector on the faceplate itself that you need to take off and put on the new faceplate.it is where the mic is located,it looks like a small black rubber with two brass pins in it..good luck!

Well, i just discover the same problem when i got a new cover for my 5300. I fixed it by carefully taking off the mic out of my old cover. Take a toothpick and poke it through the front hole of the cover and it should pop right out. be careful to not touch the coils or it is ruined. Then put it in your new cover and it should work. I hope this helps out cause it cost $15 for a rubber mic.

Okay. I just turned off my phone for 30 minutes, turned it back on, and now the sound is fine. Could the microphone be sensitive to cold weather? I hope this isn't a glitch with the 5300. So far this is the only place on the Web where I've heard of this problem with this phone.

You´ve messed up the microphone, I have no other solution for you than getting the phone repaired be a pro.
Take it to your nearest Nokia Service-Center and have them take a look at it.

 

DIY-repairs sometimes go wrong.

For the microphone buy a microphone 5300 nokia on ebay for 1.99 and replace it sits next to the keyboard on the underside of the front cover. for the charging problem buy a damaged 5300 and change the back mother board two screws and two clips and a ribbon to remove.

One of my old phones had the same problem where I could hear the other person talking but they couldn't hear me. To fix it, I also had to shut my phone off for awhile and then turn it back on so it's not just with the Nokia 5200, which I now have.

Make sure you didn't loose the two little coil springs that came off with the outside cover. They are suppose to be in the two little holes. That is what makes the connection in the microphone.

I was listening to some music on my fone then the screen just went blank!! i turned the phone on and off to see if anything would happen but it didnt every time i turn the phone on it has a blank screen...


Its manufacturing defect. If your phone is covered under warranty then you can get a new phone because it is covered under warranty. But if your phone is old and not covered by warranty then you have to change its LCD screen.

I forgot my security code


there is a hard rest for all nokia S60 phones that will sercurity code.
press and hold 3, * and the green call button, hold these down and power up the phone, keep holding until you hear the nokia tune and your phone will be retuned to factory settings.
Make sure you backup you phone first as this will wipe the phone memory but will leave the memory card data intact.

PROLEM IN TRANSFERING MUSIC FROM PC TO CELL


I had some problems at first but don't think i had this. Anyway, there are at least 3 different ways to copy music that I can think of. Nokia Music Manager (tho this can be slow), Copy from 'My music' in Xp (Music in Vista) or copy from Windows Media Player. You could also put your phone into Data Transfer mode rather than Nokia Mode and transfer the files in file manager. Hope this helps. By the way, if anyone wants to upgrade to a 5310, it should be a great little phone similar to 5300 but slim but I've had problems with it cutting out during playback and re-booting. My old 5300 which my friend now has, the speaker has just bust! I will be getting Sony Erricsson next!

How can i chang the front cover of my 5300 cell phone?


It just pops off like the other covers. But be Very careful. Part of the microphone comes off with the cover. You will have to remove it from the old cover and put it in the new one. Also there are two very small coil springs (and I mean Small!) that are in the part of the microphone that comes off with the cover. If you loose them people won't be able to hear you. So be cautious of this.
