Question about Nokia 9500 Communicator

Front Panel not working

Can you tell me the location of the switch which tells the phone that the Front Cover is Closed?

I have just replaced the Cable which connects the Keyboard to the Screen. Unfortunately I now cannot use the phone on the front - the unit keeps asking me to "Please Close the Front Cover", even though it is closed.

I assume that there is some switch which tells the phone that the Cover is closed - but I cannot find it.

Rear windows on my toyota celica cabriolet wont work.have checked switches there fine power getting to them

When The switch is closed is there power after the switch? That will tell you if the switch is working. then check for power at the window motor when the switch is closed. If you getting power to your motor than the motor is you fault, if there is no power somewhere between your switch and your motor than you need to inspect your wiring and connectors.

Phone works for about a minute then goes black and dies

The keyboard cable is worn or broken, take it to a service center for replacement. The keyboard cable has a small magnetic switch that detects when the phone cover is open or closed. If the keyboard isn't working and the internal screen is blank, the phone detects that the cover was closed.
