Question about Nokia 3230 Cellular Phone
Which parts need to replacr, to solve the network problem, for most of the set.
In most cases, replacing is not so important, but since i used to repair this model Nokia 3230, i know there's default network problem with this model. I came across several times, seems not with the hardware, but with the case (cabinet) where the network antenna is coiled around. I used to clean them using the IPA solution with soft brush (or you can use alcohol/spirit/acetone, but the best is IPA solution since it's made for the similar purpose). But before this, you need to disassemble the handset, otherwise you'll not be able to do it.
On the other hand, refreshing (giving heat with Pcb blower using a specific paste) the network ic do the trick. We always need to be very careful handling the blower since a slight or a little higher air pressure can blow away the network ic. I hope you know all these since you are going to repair it.
You can also flash the mobile to make sure there's no problem with the software.
Your last option is replacing the network ic, but i don't recommend this, most technician will charge you very high for this, as you know it's risky and if it fails, they'll replace the handset. We charge nearly the price of a used same model, and no one can assure that it'll definitely work after replacing the ic.
The problem could be related to many issues, so there's no specific solution as well. I am just giving the most common and basics solutions for the same.
Thanks for using FixYa.
