Question about Sony Ericsson K700i Cellular Phone

2 Answers

Joystick/toggle switch - is it repairable??

The toggle switch or 'joystick' is a common weakness on these phones it seems to me. Is there any repair for the toggle switch - or is the mainboard scrap when this occurs. The switch is anchored to the mainboard by two soldered 'feet' , one top , - one bottom , (also there are 3 soldered terminals each side).
On mine , one of the anchor points has fractured/sheared. I dont know if the two anchor points also make an electrical connection or 'grounding' . The switch still works in a very random/ unreliable way. Does anyone know answers to any of these questions ? Ian.

    You say replace the joypad - but do you have any more detailed advice - like how to remove it - ie unsolder all of the eight contacts. and are the two mounting feet also 'contact' points - etc

    Re: K700i/750i toggle - Hi - and thanks Ginko for help etc - I have dismantled the phone already - which is not a problem. I think actually it is not really possible to remove the joystick/toggle switch from the mainboard and replace it, as you would have to 'un-solder' eight contact points. It does not appear to be designed for easy replacement , which means any phone with this fault is only good for spare parts . Oh well. Thanks again - Ian.

Hi! I'm just going to ask regarding the joystick of my n73. I'm having problem with it, since I can't use it already. It seems like it is already pushed, like if I'm using it, I can't...


Hello there,

The problem with the phone is that the joystick is weak and is not sitting anymore on the phones board, it need to be replaced. That is what you have to do, they sell the joystick in stores or you can get a phone that no longer works and use the joystick.

You will have to take out the joystick by disassembling the phone, and reaching for it,then replace it with new one. That works all the time,if not the phone will be out of controll as the navigation button is what shows its functions.

Hope this helps
Goodluck

Problem with joystick on Jazzy 1103 ultra


You will need to take it in for repair. 8 bar flash usually means you have a bad joystick/controller. They can sometimes send it in to the manufacturer to have it repaired. Find a reputable dealer and relay this info to them.
