Question about Samsung SGH-d407 Cellular Phone

2 Answers

No response from keypad input?

My sgh-d407:
-Turns on via the normal power button
-Boots up, and from there, refuses any input from sidekeys OR the normal full keypad.  The only way to shut it off seems to be to remove the battery.
-When I open the phone, the screen and keypad light up, but no matter what I press, eventually go back to sleep as if I weren't pressing anything.
-When I get a call, I can open the phone and talk to the person, but I can't terminate it with the 'end call' button, or do anything with any other buttons, for that matter.

I'd think it's a hardware problem with the keypad, except that I can power it on with the normal red power button.  I'm thinking maybe it's a firmware problem; is there any way to hard reset it?  I've tried removing the battery for several minutes, with no change.

    Also, I should mention that the screen is not frozen, since the animated background is working.

    I checked for stuck keys; there doesn't seem to be anything physically stuck about them, and they press fine.

    As for opening it, all I can do is take off the back and remove the battery.  To do more than that requires a very small screwdriver.  I work in IT and I don't have one that small on hand.  :/

    Further, because it responds to the power button (the end-call button) before it's started up, but not after, I don't know if it'll be a hardware issue.

    Exactly the same problem. Started spontaneously while in a vehicle. Called AT&T who were no help at all.

Had the same problem and fixed it this way removed the battery and sim card. Put the battery back in and turned the phone on. You get a message "Insert Sim card". Remove the battery and insert the sim card. This resolved it for me

Check your volume keys or any side keys that get stuck... or if you can open your fone check its keypad for any shortage...

Samsung sgh d407 asking for sim lock


If your Samsung is SIM locked then you need to unlock it. You can unlock it using codes. Unlock codes are provided by the network provider or online providers. Network providers may take a long time to give the code. At that case you can contact online providers like Mobile-Unlocker.com who give the codes quickly.

I have encountered this kind of kpad problem before.only power button works.i thought it only a program,but i found the main problem is in the sidekey only.you need to disassemble your phone carefully and clean the sidekey interface.remove the membrane and clean sidekey interface.100% tested.If you have enough money to buy a new keypad flex,then you can replace the keypad flex.

WRONG CARD


Maybe the card isn't compatible with the D407? Google D407 SIM card model number, or bring the card and phone to either a phone store or Radio Shack, they can check it for you.
