Ribbon cable torn off front

My NEW Verizon cell phone went through the wash in a pants pocket. Samsung SCH-U660, or -U66O. Took back off, removed battery, removed front, left out to dry. Still not work, or charge. Took apart to try again, but this time ribbon cable tore off back of front face. How do I reattach the ribbon cable?

Ribbon cable is just pushed into where it came out of. There will be a locking mechanism on the point of connection. Ribbon wont go in all of the way until it is in the unlocked position. Once inserted, lock it again.

    Thank you Jerry! Tiny locking mechanism flipped up like a hinge. A line on the ribbon cable showed exact placement. So simple, with your help.

This is not a regular thing. Maybe if you buy a new battery that might work.

Well it depends on the type of screen you have in the phone. Some have edges that can split open and lose the fluid that projects the picture so your best bet is to just replace the phones screen, if every thing else works fine

SOURCE: how to fix my NAM on my samsung sch 700 cell phone

OMG my phone is doing that too.... i believe that you can take it to your Cell phone service provider and have them unlock it for you. to do this you must go to a technician. the problem that happened was that i knocked my phone off the network so basically its usless at this point so i will need a new phone unless they find out the code so if they cant fix it your going to have to get a new phone

Samsung brightside will not turn on.


If the phone lights up when you plug in the charger it is probably the ribbon cable that flexes every time you open the keyboard. About 25 bucks from cellphonerepairshop.com. Be sure to flip up the little latches on the flex cable ends before attempting to plug or unplug the cable ends.

Broke the hinge on my Samsung Alias 2. Need to repair it - have the parts! I had earlier broken my LCD and took the ****** apart, and put a new LCD in. Works fine, but not all of the original screws and...


The spring goes under the little plate that is held in by two tiny screws. Its visible when the phone is open vertically with the plastic cap removed from the hinge. Hope this helps. I took my hinge apart after I dropped it and the top half came off... now it's just holding by the ribbon so I'm going to order a new hinge. Verizon is completely useless. They don't want to even know about you if you're phone isn't under warranty and I have 11 months till an upgrade...

It wont turn on


Give this a try....place the phone in a zip lock bag with dry rice for a day or so to try to draw out any remaining water in the phone. If the phone still does not work, disassembly will need to be done.

It sounds like you pulled out the flex ribbon cable that is between the joint of the phone. It might have even gotten torn. You might try opening it again and looking for it as well as any other cables/ribbons that might have come loose.
