Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone
Sensor for send key not working is this repairable
Okay well I have repaired my chocolate many times..
the thumbnail trick does work you can also try pressing down on the send button a with a bit of force what.
whats going on is you had soem water or moister on ur phone. and it seeped down in
the sensor is like aluminum foil with adheisive on it. that is stuck like tape to the front of the phone. it did not move.
the reason for it acting up. is either water has gotten down in it.
but if your send or backspace key simply will not work. but it does not scroll on its own. it means your sensor is faulty.
I do not recoment trying to replace the sensor seeing is its stuck to the front of the phone.
your best bet will be to find a broken phone off of ebay.
and using your mainboard with the the front of the phone you got on ebay.
all your contacts. everything that makes your phone what it is.
is stored on your mainboard
everything else is replaceable you will not lose any data nor will your connection to your wireless carrier be halted.
to disconect the ribbon cable. you have to lift the little brown clamp that runs the with of it. try using a small pointy tipped knife.
be very cautious and sure not to cut your ribbon cable. they sell those on ebay for 3 dollars if you tear it.
once you have lifted the little cable clamp.
simply pull up on the cable. there is a bit of adheisive behind it holding it down just pull sedily and it will come loose. do not use a knife or anything to try to pry it. only pry open the cable clamp lever
also for those of you having white out. or camera problems it is probly because of cable failure.
if anyone can use a screwdriver but would like some help feel free to email me at email@example.com
to all the people with chocolates that still seem to be working. please please keep them away from water!!!!

I think this phone is ****, since many of us have the same problem with the sensors. I will never buy a chocolate again..improved or not. Better to stick with a phone that has keys, rather than sensors.

The last guest entry was pretty helpful, it actually worked. which leads me to believe that the sensor maybe has moved....i took the phone apart, but i didnt get as far as that chipboard cause i couldnt unhook the cable going to the video screen from the chipboard, but maybe i will try again
