Nokia N80 Slider


I've just replaced the housing on my Nokia N80. The problem I have now is that the phone no longer responds to the slider movement. Everything on the phone works fine apart from when I open the slider it doesn't respond to the movement. Also when I close it, it no longer gives me the option of locking the keypad. How does the phone recognise the slider movement and what could I have missed. The new housing is Nokia branded and everything appeared to be idientical to the old.

    Fixed the problem. There's a small magnet set in the housing under the screen. I'd missed it when transferring the phone to the new housing. It passes over a sensor in the main body so the phone recognises when the slider is moved.

Excellent! i had the same problem with the slider not getting recognized and took apart and put back together the phone several times. thanks to your post i finally found the problem (and luckily had a magnet from one of the old cases lying around)

thanks again!

The display goes off when the slider is opened on nokia 6210, with slider off the phone works fine

Hi Gaurav,
this seems to be a problem with the cable which connects the motherboard and the display in slider phones. You will probably have to get the cable changed at service centre and I would recommend you to go for original cable at authorised service centre.
