My dear friend, the problem with your phone is the flex is bad. The flex is the cable that connects the screen to the main board of the phone. First check if there is no damage on the screen, before replacing the flexi ribbon of the phone. Then you replace the flexi ribbon of the phone. If you want to replace it yourself, follow the steps below:

  1. Turn off your phone, Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Four screws need to be removed,
  2. Run something like a credit card around the join of the battery compartment to release it.
  3. A ribbon connector, needs to be disconnected. It attaches like a plug and socket so just lever this up to unplug.
  4. Now pull the circuit board to the side (a few clips around its edge hold the circuit board in place) and you'll see it's attached to the rest of the phone by another ribbon connector. Again, this attaches like a plug and socket and can be levered away from the circuit board.
  5. Remove the six screws you can see and you'll then be able to remove the slide part.
  6. The flexi ribbon that is behind the screen is what you need to replace, or you can replace the entire screen, but i will advice you replace the flexi ribbon only.
You can get a friend to do that for you once you find out you cannot do this on your own.

Take care and good luck

Can i know the exact steps to activate bluetooth in samsung S3500 mobile phone. Because there is no display, but phone working.


Once you get the flex of your phone repaired, then you will be able to see things on the screen. Turning on the bluetooth of your phone, then you will have to be very logical in operating the phone. I will advice you get the flex of your phone repaired, if not, while trying to operate the phone blindly might land you in locking your phone without knowing it. So it will be good if you fix the screen before you try to carry out some operation on the phone.

That should do the job.

Take care and good luck
