Question about Nokia N73 Cellular Phone
I have a nokia n73 that has an intermittant lcd screen problem , The screen sometimes goes dark with lines allover, the logic in the phone works and you can see things change when pressing buttons but the screen is unreadable different colored lines allover , Then after a while it will come back ok again , Ive master reset phone , updated to latest version.still on first switch on i have to wait till it clears
It's probably a faulty contact strip for the LCD display. There is a ribbon cable with VERY fine tracks on it that clamps into a connector on the main board. If this has shifted, you will get the problems you describe. It can be unclamped, but often breaks the lugs.
If you wish it to be repaired it is possible, but may be a 50-50 for a positive outcome.
If it is still under contract or warranty, then go through the providers, otherwise you haven't anything to loose by having a go.
Buy a decent set of jewlers screwdirivers, and prise up the edge of the clamp. It's like a hinge with catches at the end. Remove and replace the ribbon sheet(cable) and click back into place.
This may solve the problem, or cause more of a problem. as I said - 50 - 50% success rate.
