Question about Samsung SYNC SGH-A707 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

HELP!!! My phone seems to have a software problem to where the buttons aren't reading right. The "Menu" key goes to the calendar and the "7" key types in a "1" among other problems with pressing keys. I can't seem to get to the master reset through the software itself, is there any other way I can reset the phone? I can't press the menu key or "7,8,9" on my phone

    it types in when you press the buttons, they just enter different numbers...

  • MrsKurtonic Jul 02, 2008

    it works after you leave it alone for about an hour and then it goes back to not working...

    My husband went and short circuited the phone when he got a hold of it... it forced the software to reset in a more manual way and fixed the phone.

I think the keypad sensor is the problem ...
if your good at opening then just remove the handset take off the keypad check the keypad is it in good condition or not ..
if not you replace with the new one ...
& also clear if there is any obstacles in the keypad sensor ...
this will solve your problem .
it cant be the firmware problem so just do this it will be fixed ..
if you are not good at opening then just tap the phone lightly so that if there is any loose contact in the keypad with sensor it may get fixed .... otherwise you must & should open the handset & do it ...
if you are afraid then just visit the technician ...
it is just a matter of some bucks ... i think you can only do this simple thing by opening...

any doubts reply me
i am always here to assist you
thank you
bye

How do I get birthdays to show up in green on my calendar?


Under the options button you should see "calendars to show" or "enable calendars", click on this. When you see the Birthdays option, there should be a color pulldown menu where you can select the green color. Hope this helps.

Here's a trick to play Tetris, also known as Klotz on a Siemens S1.
Turn the phone on. Enter PIN. Before the telephone has logged in to the your GSM net do the following steps.
1: Choose F 9 (function settings)
2: Choose send own number and push the right button for choose.
3: Push 9
USE 2 as < and 8 as > , rotate the klotz with 5 and drop with 4.
[I have just heard from one of the programmers of the phone that Tetris was in the phone during development, but it was removed before it was produced. Apparently someone has the patent on games in mobile phones and Siemens didn't want to pay the licensing fees. It was either in Menu F-9-9 or it's not there at all.]

W902 Sony Ericsson. My Walkman button and my volume up wont work properly.. i'we already opened up the phone and cant seem to find any damage or visible faulties on the buttons. They seem unharmed and they...


Seems like a known issue with the W902. Same here, dropped my w902 a few months back and the Walkman button and Volume up keys not workin now.

Walkman button not really an issue as you still can navigate to it via the menu system but no volume UP key is annoying. You can't increase volume especially when you volume it down. Power the w902 down and up, will reset volume to 6/10.

Solution: I came across a site where you can change volume without the volume up key.

1. Ensure you lock the phone (* and Contact key)

2. While holding down the disconnect button (the one that you switch the phone off) and camera button (on the right side, bottom button), pressing 7 will decrease volume while * key will increase volume.

You need to hold both button for 7 and * to work. Works great for me as I dont have to replace my phone, hope this help.

As per symptoms it looks like keypad IC fault or CPU falult. But it is true it is hardware type of problem and should be treated by skilled technician. It is not advisable to try if u r not skilled.

Keypad troubleshooting


when I open my phone it seems to be stuck on the right arrow button so it goes to "IM account". I was really confused this morning because even if I click exit, it goes back to the same thing on its own. when I get a chance to press menu, it just whirls around as if I'm pressing the arrow over to choose a category but I'm not.. its weird.. probably the weirdest phone I've ever had
