5300 nokia display light not working

Usual cause of this phone is losing the flex connector on the upper board,this may happen when the phone drop off the ground or a force of sliding up/down.

To fix this problem,please follow this method.

1. turn off the phone
2. remove the battery
3. slide up the phone
4. at the back of the upper panel,pill the metal shield with a cutter blade.(it's a little bit sticky because of adhesive.)
5. upon seeing a flex connector,check if it's detach or loosen,gently push that connector until it locks or fit (be careful with the lcd in front panel when pushing that connector,might broke it if pushing over)

Now test if gonna work now.

Otherwise,it can be flex connector or LCD screen need to replace,it is more safe if you bring the phone to a mobile service shop for parts replacement.

Good Luck...

I have one nokia 5200 mobile but following problem are there 1) only seen complete blue colour screen 2)no connectivity with pc by using nokia pc suite i want to upload comlete contacts from phone so...

When LCD or the flex connector is damage,it should be readable by the computer,no matter this two parts is not connected.

No matter what the history is,might be drop on the ground or water damage,before doing software method,try to dismantle the upper panel,possible that the flex connector is shortening because its line is hitting some grounds that's why the phone is not powering.

This is my suggestion,

* Remove the back cover and the battery pack.
* Remove the front cover by release the side clips
* unscrew 4 screws connected on the metal frame of the lcd using a T6 screw driver or any tool that can twist or release the screw.
* remove the LCD connector and the LCD itself.
* gently lift up the top pcb or top boad with the lcd is connected,be careful because the is a flex connector underneath,the release the flex connector.

Now try to put the battery and connect the usb cable and turn the phone on,If there is a response on the computer,that means either flex connector or lcd is the problem.

This is the time that you can copy all important files if the computer recognizes the phone using nokia pc suite.

* If this method does not work,you need to ask assistance to any mobile service shop near you,and tell the if it's possible to recover the data on your phone without flashing your phone firmware.

Hope this solution can help you....

Touch screen not working

Hi, The problem with your phone is as a result of a bad flex connector cable which connects the touch screen to the panel,it's weak and needs to be replaced.
However,the solution is to take apart the phone and remove the flex cable which is in form of a ribbon situated behind the touch screen and replace it with a newly purchased flex cable.

Thanks and take care

I flip the phone open and the screen is blank. Cannot tell if it is on or off.


there is nothing wrong with your screen, the problem is from the flex that connects your screen to the phone's main board. This flex must have worn out that's why your screen is not displaying any picture.

The problem is common with flip and slide phones. The flex gets worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone.

I would urge you to replace the flex and I am assuring you that your screen will display picture again. You might also be lucky to find out that the flex is not well fix, that is, it may have loosed contact.

If you cannot change the flex yourself, maybe you should take the phone to a local repairer within your vicinity, so that the flex can be fixed/replaced.

Take care.

LG display is completly black, however the phone works

The problem is either in the the flex ribbon connector, connector terminals or LCD itself. Disassemble the unit then check the flex ribbon connector for any crack or damage. If no apparent damage is found, clean both the flex terminals and the connector terminals. Resoldering the connector terminals is also suggested. If no result, LCD is damaged, replace it.
