Question about Sony Ericsson Z520a Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Z520a wire pigtail

What's the quickest way to get a hold of the wire harness that connects the screen to the phone? I realize that a "White screen" is a common problem with this phone, but can be cheaply repaired. I just need to get a hold of the wire harness to get it done.
Any harness dealers out there?

    My screen is white and stays that way. It won't do anything else but stay white. I can answer calls and make calls without seeing the screen...but it's quite annoying.

I found the LCD screen and wire harness needed on Ebay, and didn't even have to pay money to just have someone from here tell me that was the solution.

Wiring pigtail input speed sensor on my 2000 sonata. The new plug came with three white wires but the wires from car are different colors. color wiring diagram ?

the connector is the same on both the old harness and the new pigtail. As long as you orientate the connectors the same way you just match up the wires. let me try to explain it this way. If you hold the old connector so the part that holds the connector to the sensor is facing up. Hold the new connector exactly the same way. cut the left wire on both and connect the new connector wire to the old wiring harness. Then cut the center wire and connect them. then cut the right wire and connect. No wiring diagram needed.

One thing I will add is to stagger the new connections. Meaning do nut cut them at the place. Cut one wire then cut the next about an inch or so further and then cut the next about an inch or so further than that. This will prevent the new connections from potentially shorting to each other and will keep the harness from becoming really bulky with all the but connectors in the same location.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Repeated melting of wiring harness of brown/white wire connection. replaced/spliced into new pigtail. Now blowing 15 amp fuse to instrument cluster,tail lights. Any ideas?

If the wire and connection keeps burning /. melting, it would suggest that whatever that wire is supplying power to is overloading the circuit. Trace the wire to see what it is powering and check if the component has shorted / jamming. Normally however, if something is shorting or overloading the circuit, you would expect the fuse protecting that circuit to keep blowing.

How to install a harness for trailer lights on a 1993 honda accord station wagon

The SIMPLE way to do it is...

You can buy replacement taillight bulbs with wiring pigtail wiring hanging out of the side of the bulb. You'd use them to replace your existing taillight bulbs and connect your trailer harness to the pigtail wires. You may need to drill through the taillight housing to get the harness wiring in to the bulbs - if you have to do that, seal it back up around the wiring with RTV silicone.

That's a lot easier than tracking down each wire, probing it to find out what it does, and splicing into it with pinch splices (which aren't very reliable), then periodically replacing the pinch splices that've gone bad and made your trailer lights fail. You can make a pretty good splice to the pigtailed taillight bulbs, and it's really easy to tell what each pigtail does - brake/turn or park light.

What is pigtail wiring harness for 1999 gmc suburban

Blower motor resistor

You can purchase a " pigtail " for the resistor,which will come with the plug and approx. 8" of wire ( each wire ). The pigtail should cost not much more than $ 20.00,whereas the big harness would probably run you around $ 800.00 ( just a guess ). Replace the resistor and the pigtail at the same time to ensure proper connection.

How do you install the frd03-dvd? mines came with no instructions.

Hello jeffery_armi,

The FRD03-DVD allows you to replace the factory head-unit and retain the audio and power to your OEM DVD player. With the FRD03-DVD, the audio from the OEM DVD player is connected to the auxiliary input of the aftermarket radio to allow the DVD audio to be heard over the vehicle's audio system.

The FRD03-DVD harness consists of a molex-plug, stereo RCA audio male connectors, and red and black wires ending in "pigtails".

1) Connect the molex plug into the OEM harness.
2) Connect the RCA audio connectors into the "AUX" inputs of your aftermarket head unit.
3) Tap the red "pigtail" wire into the "accessory" lead of the vehicle radio harness (also usually red).
4) Tap the black "pigtail" wire into the "ground" lead of the vehicle radio harness (also usually black). Alternatively, the black wire may be terminated with a ring terminal and secured to a metallic ground nearby.

Hope this helps.

Display screen blank can receive calls

The white screen is the wireing harness connecting the screen half of the phone to the lower half.
Only way to get it fixed is to contact a local cell repair shop that's familiar with the problem (which is extremely common) and then wait til that shop can locate some wire harness' for that phone. That's what I'm doing now. I love this phone, but the wiring is the problem

Fail to power up

Your phone is on if you get the white screen. The problem is the wire harness that connects the two halves of your phone. Very common problem with this phone, but hard to repair. Some local repair shops might have a way to get it done, but it won't be a quick fix. Wiring is hard to come by.

Screen went white last night - no known cause (didn't drop it, wasn't wet, was safely inside a pouch in my purse). Phone works, but can't see anything so not very useful. Help!

The problem with the white screen is the wire "pigtail" that connects the upper portion of the phone with the lower half. The wireing harness' are hard to come buy, but a lot of local cell repair shops get old phones in bulk from time to time and some of them may contain the harness needed.
