Have just fixed this problem on my 3120 everything else was working on it except this. If you take apart the phone starting with removing battery, then the face plate and touchpad, then using a T6 screwdriver remove the 6 screws holding motherboard to the chassis and remove motherboard. Then remove silver metal base plate to expose the Antenna Assembly, very gently remove this part as this is where the ringer is. When you are looking at this you will see two little spring loaded balls on the left hand side, you should be able to put your finger on one of these to get a clicking sound. Both of these should be in the up position if not do this, with a very thin blade gently go into the seam nearest the spring loaded balls and cutting thru the glue go along edge of seam until they pop up. Then put it all back together again and hopefully this has sovled your problem. My phone was out of warranty and i had 3 quotes of $70-$90 to fix so i had nothing to loseby doing this.

And 6 years later... so I found this web page after Googling the problem of my Nokia 3120 not ringing after I dropped it.

Roxydog1's reply about the two little spring loaded balls made me think that maybe I could make them get back to their correct position by banging the phone against a hard surface.

So I did that several times and eventually it worked. After banging the top right edge of the phone against my desk, the ringing started working again.

Where the "A" of Nokia is on the front of the phone, hit the edge of the phone (not the back or front or top or bottom) near the very top of the edge against a wooden surface, like a desk top.

If at first it doesn't work, hit it a bit harder, but use your common sense! Don't hit it so hard something breaks - you just need to shock those balls back into the correct position.

Worth a try if all else fails.

No sound on incomming calls


Hi,why it does not ring out is because,the ringer is damaged..and it needs replacement. Before you replace it,you can clean up where the ringer is,there might be dirt stopping it to work.But you have to unscrew the phone to see where the ringer is.

Please if you have no knowledge about the phone,you can contact a skillful personnel for assistance.

Before that you can trythe below step,might just be a setting problem.

1. Go to Menu > Settings > Profiles
2. Select Profile and then Select General.
3. After selecting General you will be given 3 options (Activate, Personalize, Timed)
4. Select Personalize.
5. In the Incoming Call Alert field, select Ringing.
6. In the Ringing Tone field, select your favorite ring tone.
7. Scroll down, (push down button) the next field would be Ringing Volume. For now select the max.
8. Scroll down to the Vibrating Alert field and set it to Off.
9. Scroll further down thill the very last field where it says Alert For, select All Calls for this field.
10. Save your modifications.
11. Activate the profile and see if it works now.

Only and only If it doesn't work, it may be due to software corruption.
In that case reset your phone to the factory default settings by going to:
Menu > Settings > Press UP button.
Select Restore Factory Sett. give your Security Code (default = 12345) and viola.
(Make backup of your messages ad contacts before attempting this)

Have a nice day.

The ringer is gone bad. Go to service center and just ask them to change the ringer. It will cost less than 100 rupees.
Make sure the phone profile is not in silent or in vibration only...
