My samsung impression slider is falling apart, springs falling out and small black rectangular thing-y covering the upper left corner of my keyboard. i do not drop my phone, no water damage, it is in a...

I've seen it in this phone before too. And if you don't fix it soon other parts will start breaking like the flex cable. If you managed to keep everything that fell off, the good news is you can fix it yourself if you are mechanically inclined. The springs just snap in once you get the phone apart. If that doesn't appeal to you, there are some sites you can send it in to for repair, and there are sites like ours where you can trade it in for another phone.

On my smasung U600 mobile phone the contact and ok


It's a flex problem. The flex that connects the phone board to the those keys is bad. This is very common with Samsung slide phones. I have see a lot of problems like this and when the flex was changed, it began to work perfectly well again.

I would advice you take the phone to an expert in your area to replace the flex for you. That's that only way forward, trust me.

Best wishes.

hi :)
Well, your problem is mine problem, and the problem of all U600 with some use. The problem is the Flex Cable that connect to LCD is "broken". So, you just need to go to the Samsung office (if you have guaranty) or do the same like me... I have no guaranty left so, I will buy a new flex cable in ebay, and then I will make the changes by myself... but of course, you shouldn't do that if you don't understand nothing of that... :P I'm just waiting a letter from ebay to complete my account and "Voila" :) If you just need to know how to open your phone to change, there are a really good video on youtube about that ;)
Good luck ;)

No sound Have the same problem, my phone work perfect for about 1 year, and now suddenly doesnt sound, no music, no speaker, no keys sound. But the ring does sound, I make a full reset and the problem...

Is your speaker not working _only_ when the phone is 'opened' (with slider all the way up)? In that case, the problem could be the flex cable of the slider. My cable is broken and I need to get a replacement. The headset (whether the original one with cable which came with the phone or a bluetooth headset) works OK. I have the service manual of the U600 with good instructions how to open it. If needed, I can e-mail it to you.

Hi. I have the same problem before with the same phone. I have my flex replaced. Flex is the slider ribbon. At first it will work when the phone is closed or the slider is down,but eventually it will worn out. The flex is very sensitive and it should not have any scratch but the thing is, since we need to slide the phone everytime we use it, this cannot be avoided. You have to bring your phone to the nearest samsung service location store and ask for replacement. :) This thing is a bit costly.

Case Creaking

that creaking sound is the spring maybe its been dislocate or cut in a half. go to your nearest service center if they can replace that spring cuz' if you wont get that spring out it could get worst cuz' it could damage your flex cable.
