Question about Sony Ericsson Z520 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Dropped sony ericcson z520

It will no longer connect to network. Keeps saying "searching for network". Had excellent reception before. Everything else on it works. I tried the sim card on a friends phone: it works fine. Off warranty. What broke inside and what can I do about it? Could there be something inside I can easily solder to fix it?

Re: Dropped sony ericcson z520

Sounds like you have dislodged the antenna or possibly broke a contact.
if you are confident have a go BUT I would take it to a tech for repairs

Dropped my LG 8700 phone, and now it just keeps "searching for Service" Everything else seems to be working ok. Any suggestions?

If you're encountering this kind of problem on your phone then

all you have to do is powercycle your phone.You can do that by

removing the battery while the phone is on.After 15 seconds

kindly reinsert the battery and turn the phone on again.If you

still have the same error message then kindly go to a different

location because it might be that the phone is not getting a good

reception.And if you still have the same problem then kindly

contact your service provider because its a probable issue with

the network,not with the phone.

My phone keeps saying its searching for service when im at home and i have always had service in my home. What should I do?

It is possible that the phone has dropped in its reception due to some issues in the antennae section. If you are able to work when you are out of the house then it is for sure that the low reception of the nearest tower is down. First of all check with your service provider if the tower is having an issue some times it may be operating in less power- a possible down condition. IF not check your SIM with another phone, if the signals look ggood then you may need to open your set to check if there is any traces of moisture , break or coneecction loss in the antennae output section. Look carefully clean and set back. If not the phone network IC may be defective/weak. Hope this works out. Good day

No reception on cell phone "No Network Service"

You need to check the RF. The RF is a component that pick up the signal. It is usually placed on the upper portion of the phone where there's a small exhaust so that the RF could pick up the signal better.

Once the RF gets wet, the component might become defective.

You need a phone tech to check or change the RF.

Have a great day!
