Volume buttons won't work, camera button wont work, and speakerphonew button wont work. Happened out of nowhere. Cannot lower/raise volume on side of phone, only vibrate works.

Welcome to Fixya's Community.
These problems HAve been related to a damaged flex cable.

This is the cable which in the U700 connect the lower part of the phone to the lcd part (with the screen, speaker, camera and touchscreen buttons). All the data such as screen images, camera pictures, speaker sounds pass through this cable from the main board which is located in the lower part of the phone.

Unfortunately, each time one opens the phone, the cable slides between the two part of the phone. In the long term, as the cable is thin and soft and this movement causes frictions between the cable and the parts, the cable consumes itself. the damage of the cable could results in weird effects on the phone.

In order to fix that you need to replace that part.
its easy.
just take the phone apart and locate the flex cable and replace it.
believe me you can do it yourself.
  • The Flex cable of your phone cost 3 $
  • A phone repair shop will fix that for 25 $

see if you can find it on eBay.
remember its SCH-U700 Not SGH-U700 there is a big difference.

Good Luck

How do i take pics?

Well, the easiest way is to use the botom button on the right side (edge) of your phone.

The other way is to press the Main Menu button on the main screen. This is the middle icon at the bottom of the screen that has 4 dots then go to Media Center.
Select Pictures & Video then Take Picture.

Point and press the camera button (bottom right edge)

To switch between Video and Pictures, press and hold down the camera button until either the camera icon or the video (movie camera) icon appears.

Once you take the picture, you have to select the second icon down on the right to save it to the phone.

Automatic camera

The camera buttons on the side are jammed down. This happens with the W850i and is a design fault. The reason you notice it randomly is because your hand will often brush off the camera buttons which are now so sensitive that the lightest touch will set them off. Same happened with mine but instead it switched the phone off when they were touched... When I realised, I popped the buttons out and stayed away from them as you can still take pictures using the touch screen :) I have the official repair document on the phone and it's easy to remove / replace the side pad but why bother. If it's contract then it's a well known problem and you should return but not accept the same model as a replacement as it will fail also. If return is not an option, then remove the side button and the phone is otherwise quite robust.
