Cant go left with the joystick more in msg

I can't go left with the joystick at all...but when I open the phone right on the white part near what i think is the joystick box and a little space between the joystick box n white part if i lightly press on there with my finger nail in the correct spot n hold it, while i am holding it, the joystick will go left, otherwise it does not go left what so i need to replace something, just clean it or does it require more then above? I tryed blowing in there for dust / dirt repsonse, my friend who gave me the phone told me he put a piece of plastic between the joystick center "joystick box" and the white part on the left of the joystick and tape over it and it worked for so long now it dont do anything unless i press on the phone at the right spot, the person that could help let me know and i can maybe email a picture of exactly where i am pressing to get the joystick to work to the left...i really want to use this phone but it is limited due to not being able to go left, any help would be appreciated greatly!! :) thank u

Z525a screen comes on but stays vacant.

If you have access to a laptop computer that has an Infrared Port or Bluetooth communications, you can download your videos and picture files via either of these two methods. I use an old IBM Thinkpad 600 with IR port to download mine. You have to put your z525 phone into Infrared mode first, its kind of tricky with out seeing what you are doing. First, open your phone, press upper right (-) sign to get menu, click joystick control down 2 times then right 1 time. next press upper left (-) sign to select. next joystick right 4 times, and down 1 time. press upper left (-) sign, then joystick up 1 time. press upper left (-) 1 time. Your Infrared Port will now be turned on, and your I.R. enabled laptop can now receive the files from your phone. Close your phone, open it again, press upper right (-) , press joystick down 1 time, then left 1 time, then press the joystick center select button 2 times. Joystick right 1 time, press joystick select 1 time. press upper right (-) 1 time, joystick down 5 times, joystick right 1 time, joystick down 3 times, joystick center select 1 time. Hold the lower left corner of your phone toward the I.R. port of the laptop, it will receive the first photo file in your camera pictures file. Another possible method would be to obtain a usb connector cable for the z525 phone to connect it to your computer. Using the usb cable the computer would recognize the phone, you could click on the phone icon, under "MyComputer" and transfer the files to your hard drive. I hope this helps. -Mike

Setup wizard

First open your phone, then press upper right (-) key to get to menu. press joystick down 2 times, then right 1 time, to get to Settings. Press joystick center select button, press joystick down 9 times to get to Master Reset, press center select button. Joystick down 1 time to get Reset Device, press center select, then press upper left (-) key. This will delete all user settings & data, including pictures, messages, data, sounds, games, contacts etc. The phone will be restarted. If this doesn't fix the problem, you will most likely need to replace the internal wiring harness.(Not a job even I would enjoy!) Hope this helps.
