    switch it off totally and then ON it after 2 hours

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jan 22, 2008

    Remove the battery and sim card. Replace the battery w/o the sim card after one hour and then power it ON. see if this helps

    do you have a bill for purchase??

    ok, go to the tmobile store that you bought it from and bring the recipt or a bill and id so that they know that it is your phone, and they will fix it for free

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jan 22, 2008

    u need to let it charge for at least 1 day it seems.. try turning it ON after that...

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jan 28, 2008

    it seems some boot loader has been courrupted.. so try reinstalling the software by taking it to some authorised shop.. that will fix you

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jan 29, 2008

    oh.. then i will saythat the problem is with your faulty sidekick3..

    problem must lie inside your power circuit..

    dont take it to some local tech man. they will change the chips.



    so take it some authorised person. even he asks for few dollars extra you can take it to him without any fear.



    but i would suggest you to buy a new one..

    thank you..


  • dewan nafees ahmed Jan 29, 2008

    dont worry power circuit wont cost you more.. its just a small portion of a complex circuit/....

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jan 29, 2008

    no no.. dont do it..



    technician is best.. because problem is in a circuit.. so we need to check the circuit stage by stage.. then only we can find the problem.. that is very difficult to do it..

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jan 30, 2008

    for that flex cable only will be a problem.. i dont think it will be the problem with internal hard ware..

    but when ever deciding to replace a part a step by step checking is very much necesasry..dont forget that...

Last night the screen for my Motorola V365 stopped coming on. I hear the usual musical tones when the phone is turned on or off, and the keys light up for a few seconds as usual, but the screen remains...


Hello,

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.

In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Moniter stays blank


I used to repair LCD flat screen from Dell. I am not sure that my method might be applicable to your CRT monitor. Anyway this is how to examine what wrong with the monitor. You have to check if you can see the image on the screen or not after it went blank (Power on both CPU and monitor) by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. In my case, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.
Thank you

Cd ejection


Look for a tiny, recessed Reset button on the front of the unit with the face removed. Press this button with a pen tip; it should spit out the CD and work correctly afterwards. This will also erase your station presets and audio settings.
