Question about LG Shine KE970 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

It won't turn on

I'm not sure if it got damp whilst in my coat pocket but it worked ok for the whole of the next day but wouldn't turn on the day after. can you undo the four little screws and have a look inside to see whether it got damp and is it easy to put back together?

Dear braycroft

The whole process of assemblying/dissasembling the phone is shown at the link below. You will find it very usefull.

You should find a white sticker within the phone. If it has turned red then moisture has indeed penetrated the phone. The service centers at this point will probably deny warranty repair. (If you have a warranty that is valid please go to them first)

The only thing you can do is to inspect the phone for moisture and then put it on a baking tray and do a drying cycle of 2-4 hours at max 60-65 degrees celcius. Maybe this will bring your phone back to life. (If moisture is only causing a short now and has not cause total failure on IC's)

By any means baking an electronic device can be dangerous so be carefull. It is standard practise for the engineering world but not for the amateur.

I wont be held responsible for any problems you may inflict to the device.

Regards and good luck

The whole top half of my phone is not working on my samsung messagertouch

Hi this is a very common problem with all flip and slide phones and even laptops and notebooks, the problem is to do with the data ribbon that connects the screen to the circuit board in the bottom of the phone.
now inside this ribbon are several single strand copper wires and over time open and closing the phone causes these to break and you then lose the connection with the screen.

as this is such a common fault it makes the part itself cheap to buy and cheap to get fitted. it isnt something you can do your self as you need specialist tools to take the phone apart and to fit the data ribbon.

if you want it repaired the cheapest place would be one of those small independent phone shops as the bigger one will have to send it off and you will be charged extra for this, the smaller phone shop should be able to fix it whilst you wait or the next day at the latest.

its up to you if you think the phone is worth getting fixed then it wont cost much to get done.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

I can hear on my nokia but the caller cant hear me

Hi this is a very common problem with your model of nokia, now its usually happens if the phone has got damp or any liquid got into the mouth piece where the mic is, the only way of solving the problem is to get the microphone replaced, the cheapest place to have this done will be a small phone shop and not one of those big branded phone shops.
The phone shops in markets would be your cheapest option and its an easy job to do so they should be able to do it whilst you wait, it wont be expensive as its a common problem and the cost of the part is next to nothing so if you want to keep using the phone then its worth getting the part replaced as it would be a lot cheaper than replacing the whole phone.

One trick you can try is to blow into the mic as hard as you can sometimes this will un-stick the mic if it has stuck due to condensation or damp.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

When i charge my battery its all full bars i hold the phone in my pocket whole day (its still fully charge) when i got to bed at night and wake up in the morning the bettery is (half way) i hold the phone...

Depends on whats running and what you use it for during its use. Technically shutting it off to reset it once a day is good, but it being half dead a day and half later is pretty normal

Sony Ericsson W995 LCD Screen-fixable problem?

Dude I had the same problem with you. but in my case, I put it in my pocket (jeans) and the next thing you know, it goes all black and with a few strokes of color just like yours!

sadly, there is no way you could fix it by yourselves. you have to replace the whole LCD though..

I just had my LCD replaced and it cost me $$$. I thought after I replaced the LCD everything will go back to normal but apparently, putting W995 in your pocket is also, a very bad, idea.

Lucky me the newly replaced LCD is still in it's guarantee period. Which I'm gonna go and check with the phone centre tomorrow.

Oh the price to have a W995 in your hand..

Camera light stays on samsung g600. tried everything, settings, left battery out. helpppp

I recently had this problem too. It started when i first tried the flash settings on the camera. I woke up the next day, turned my phone on and the light wouldn't turn off.

I discovered that by cycling through each flash option (always on, auto and always off) and taking a photo on each setting would sometimes turn the light off for a few moments before the phone crashed and had to be restarted.

Whilst showing this to a friend last night somehow the light went off and the phone didn't freeze (this might be because i had reset the phone to it's factory settings earlier in the day). The light is now off permanently, although i'm hesitant to use the flash again for fear of causing the whole problem again!

if the phone is working when the charger is in the problem is with the battery.

from what you describe its a battery issue, so replacing the battery is the solution.

Phone won't turn on, took battery out and put it back in, still won't turn on, it acts like it's about to turn on and then blinks back off. Battery is charged up, I've only had it for 4 months

When you power up first let it going into off chargeing mode, then hold the power button to turn it on, continue to hold it through this whole process, then after the sitck together box has been completed (which may take a few attempets) rapidly push the right soft key until your phone jump in and out of the t-zones area which should be your default right soft key buttong then you should be able to use your phobe normally, note that it did take me a good half an hour of doing this to make my phone through the whole process. :)
