Question about Nokia 3120 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Fading Signal Strength

I've notice that the longer my Nokia 3120 is 'on' it has a problem maintaining a signal. It will slowly loses its signal strength until it fades out completely. I've ordered a $1.99 'internal antenna booster', which may just be a gimmick but worth a try. Do you have any other ideas or suggestions as to why it does this and if there is anything else I can do or try?

    Dear Mble Maniac,

    Well, that narrowed the problem down to a 'possible cause'...

    Now, is there a solution or a repair that I can do to fix the problem?

Could be a worn rf modulator
this controls the radio frequencies.
If you are having trouble with dropping calls that last for a little longer than normal 1-2 mins then that would be my guess

    you can try replacing the antenna first if you are not suffering call dropouts that I mentioned.

    However if the phone is dropping the calls then a service technician is my best suggestion

It is a recommended practice to repeat the channel search routine periodically as the DTV environment is subject to change. Also, the antenna connection to your TV may not provide sufficient signal strength to maintain picture quality. Even weather can be a factor.

CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.

I have a poor signal how can i make it better nokia 5230 so i can call on my phone


First of all,put the SIM card into another phone which you can be sure that there are no faults with it and check whether you're getting a good enough signal strength than your nokia 5230 phone.
If you're not,then its not a fault with your nokia 5230.
If your area has a poor signal strength from your current service provider,move into another service provider who has more signal strength within your area if you can.

Most of the channels breaking up despite auto retuning


could be one of a few things,
low signal strength, aerial out of line with transmitter.
bad coax connections losing signal strength.
coax broken inside, or old and not low loss.
Get the aerial checked for direction, half a degree out of line over a few miles and you will lose a lot of signal strength, as will old coax (aerial cable) and if you are using an unshielded coax you could be losing signal strength through the cable itself. Replace the connecters and try to use a straight run of cable instead of having joins in it as these joins, even if using connecters, will cause a weak signal. If yiu are running more than one tv off your aerial, invest in a booster.

Losing signal intermittently every 1-5 minutes


This problem is probably due to weak signal strength from the cable to the television. Buy a signal amplifier for you cable line in and use another cable out of the amplifier output to your Television input signal source, This should bring up the signal strength for you.You could also have your cable company check the input signal strength to you house or apartment and see if the cable itself needs repairing or replacing.If this does not help with your problem , then you need to have your television tuners signal input circuit tested it may have weakened from age. This may be adjustable in the tuner box, but this is something for a service technician to determine. customer service number for Insignia is 1-877467-4289. Hope this helps you with your problem

Fading Signal


Several factors can affect the overall signal strength. One is that there might be more interference in the area using the same frequency. i.e cordless phones. Cordless phones transmit on a frequency of 2.4 mhz...oddly enough that is the same frequency that most routers transmit on. One way you might be able to aleviate some of the interference is to go into the router settings and manually change the channel. Just make sure that you go into your wireless adapters settings at each of your wireless computers and have them changed to the new channel as well.

Hopefully this clears some of the issues up for you.

Good Luck
