Damaged Samsung Sync

Good morning - I got my Samsung Sync at Christmas and about a month ago I purchased Tetris.

My thumb nail has already damaged the left-right up-down plate at the the top. I is possible for me to replace only the plastic face on the control and if so what would I order?

    The Reply I got from Marie is not sufficient. I do not know the name of the part I require or if it is something I can fix. I need further guidance. (See original below.)

    I just do not see the part I need. With my Samsung open - looking at the keypad - in the top middle is a controller which can be pressed up, down, left or right. There is a silver border around it with a silver button in the center. The black plastic inside this border is cracked and somewhat broken. Is this the piece you are referring to athttp://www.cellulardr.com/GH98-03415A.ht... ?

    yours is the most cogent answer I have had. If I get the keypad could I install it or does it require specialized tools?

From you description it is the keypad that broke (the buttons themselves), so get a replacement keypad. Have you checked on eBay? I get all my cellphone parts on eBay, they have anything you can imagine.

    If it's the plaster that surrounds the keys then you should get the keypad housing.

    Usually you would only need a set of precision screwdrivers for the tiny screws. They may be hex screws but most of the time are simple phillips screws. I suggest to most people that are not experienced with taking apart small electronics that they take digital pictures or draw diagrams every step of the way so that everything goes back together properly.

Hello, yes I beleave this can be repaired by yourself, but if you dont have the tools to open up the phone it might be easyer to take the phone in for service?

    You've got the damaged phone in front of you ?



    Now if you check on the site I supplied for the part that looks the same - what else do you need.



    I'll be glad to be of assistance.

    Ok , lets give it a go then. You will need very small star srewdrivers like the one's used to repair watches etc.



    Take off the battery at the back and unscrew all the small screws you can see. Also take out the sim card.



    Slowly remove the top and bottom parts from each other and replace the old keypad with the new.



    Then make sure that the buttons line up with the keypad and screw back.

My screen has gone blank. It fell on the floor a few days ago, but only this morning it began to go "funny" and now it is completely blank (black). Any ideas how to fix it please?


bad sign... when the CP turns black, the CPU IC maybe damaged... an expert cellphone technician may fix it but it have a 50-50 chance or best to buy a new CP... sorry for your broken CP... but still hope that it can be fix or if you can afford a new one...

Samsung flight sgh-a797 broken, in two pieces.


Hello,

yes, it can be repaired. But it all depends on the repairer in your vicinity and the availability of the damaged parts.

Since the phone is completely apart, the flex must have been damaged and needs replacement.

The phone to a repairer and let the repairer check what was damaged, so the he/she can know what to do.

Take care.

Either the battery cover or the back housing is damaged. To fix it and fix it right, you need to replace the damaged part.

Look online, or check out www.wirelessunlimitedinc.com, or www.myspace.com/wirelessunlimited.

Other than that, the only other option would be to tape it on.

Ok the Part Number you are looking for is the Keypad : GH98-03415A and you'll be looking at about $25 for the part.

The replacement of the part on the other hand is not as easy as one might think and if you have no experience on doing this , you should rather take it to a repairer.

Video sending won't work.


maybe it depends on who you're sending it to, and whether or not they can accept video. or the service cuts out during sending after it says 'send successful'. try checking your outbox, and if the vids are in there, send them again.
