Question about Nokia 6288 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Speaker Hi, the mobile got wet and after careful drying out, the only function that doesn't work is the speaker.  So no audible ring tones, no hands free music, voice commands etc.  I have to rely on the vibration effect for incoming call alerts. Is this worth getting fixed? Can I buy the part and do it myself? Many thanks, Bryan UK

The speaker is not working, the microphone is not working (voice commands). To repair it's beyond the average person, you need special tools, also some of the screws have to be replaced, you can only use them once. Some parts inside are glued, so you need the glued stickers to replace after removing old ones. In the end water and electrical equipment don't mix very well, in time it will probably give you more trouble. It all depends on how long the phone was in water.
By the time you've bought the parts, the service manual (you'll need one) and spent hours trying to sort it out!. It's not worth it.
I would either take it to a repair shop, to get a quote, and weigh the quote against another phone. Or say a few nice words and give it a decent send off.

Where can I get a description of what the lg icons are other than what is on the phone? Eg.What does ring and speaker mean? What does one beep and one beep &speaker mean? Roaming icon means what?...


Depends on what model it is BUT generally....

E911 is emergency calls only, meaning no service.
Ring and speaker is audible only
Beep and speaker is vibe and sound
roaming means you are on another carrier's network, other charges may apply depending on your plan.
1X is comparable to dial-up speed. If your in high speed area, you will see EV or 3G
Location is your GPS function on/off

No ringtone no sound in speaker . i can receive call


Your ringing speaker may get damaged.You can open the cover of your phone and just press hardly where the ringing speaker is situated.Then check with any ringing tone if the ringing speaker is working or not.If its work you can contact a mobile phone service center and tell him to clean the connection of your ringing speaker and mother board.

Or you need to change the speaker to get rid of it

I got my i870 from my sister a week ago, i got it for boost mobile but the ear speaker doesnt work either, i took it apart and i ordered the flip part of the phone which comes with the whole top section. It should work after i put the new part. it was only $26 off of ebay. the parts were only held up five screws. really easy but you have to be careful and gentle.
