Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Slider has seperated

Is there a way for me to reconnect the face portion of the phone back to the base? The phone still works completely, but it is just in two pieces. Bring it to the tech counter at verizon, or can I don something myself?

If the actual sliding mechanism has broken, then the phone most likely needs replacement or a trip to the manufacturer. If you have insurance on your phone, Verizon will cover it. Even if you don't have insurance, take it to the nearest Verizon shop.

How do i turn light on or off


If you're referring to your display brightness, you can control this in your Settings. Use the Settings App and Open the Brightness &Wallpaper menu. Select the brightness level on the slider and flip to auto-brightness if you like. This will adjust brightness based on ambient lighting detected by your front-facing camera. If that's causing you problems, disable the auto-brightness and just control it manually from the slider.

Replaced the broken glass front of my iphone 3GS. Everything looked fine, but the slider on the screen does not work... Did the replacement protocol all over again, but nope no slider. Any...


On touch screen phones like the iphone and N97, when replacing the screen there is a small ribbon attched to the back of the screen that connects to the main circuit board.This ribbon allows your phone to recognize you touching the screen and makes the screen work. Take the front cover back off and check that the connector is clean and dust free (on the new screen and on the phone) reconnect the ribbon and push down gently until its securely in place and re-attach the screen to your handset.

This should solve your problem and hope it helps please rate thanks

N95 slider problem . LCD goes blank on sliding . it appears that there is problem in Strip. do u get separate strip or it comes alongwith slider....


No the Slider strip doesn't come separately because the strip is merged permanently to a circuit that has your earpiece ,light sensor,and front camera you cannot seperate it in any manner because the only unlockable part over there is the LCD screen .i would recommend you to get your phone serviced from nokia care only because the strip is the most important part in a slider .. even if you get a local strip installed from a local mobile repair center it wont last for a month ..even i had the same problem 4 months back ..because quality of the strip matters .......

My iphone 3gs got stucked and i cannot operate any of the functions, not even sleep/wake mode also


  1. Turn off iPhone - Hold down the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the red slider. Ignore this step if your iPhone is already off.
  2. Press and hold down the Home button for about 10 seconds until a yellow triangle with a text which says Please Connect to iTunes appears. iphone-recovery-mode.jpg
  3. Plug the iPhone into Mac or Windows PC. Release the button if you haven't.
  4. Run and open iTunes if it's not already opened yet.
  5. iTunes will prompt a message that says iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Click OK.
  6. You will be taken to the iPhone pane. Then, click on Restore.
  7. Wait for the full restoration process to complete, and the iPhone will be back to the original settings state as when it left the manufacturing factory, typically a working phone again if you face any problem, unless it's hardware related.

Slider sticks


had this happen on my samsung impression press together the front and back portion of the phone to see if the case became misaligned. You should have 8 corners to ensure are snug. If that does not work you might have a broken spring.

I just want to completely disassemble my phone. how do i do it?


Start by removing the battery and the four small Phillips-head screws around the battery. Next, remove the plate on the back of the phone, below the battery panel. The panel is stuck in place with sticky foam and might be hard to peel off. Then remove the two small phillips-head screws. Next use a tiny (glass repair kit) flat-head screwdriver to pry the two halves of the base apart at the seam.

This is where it gets tricky. Gently take each piece off one-by-one. But to separate the screen you have to slide it half way and hold it in place while you unplug the ribbon cable from the circuit board in the base of the phone. Then disconnect the arm from the slider and slide the phone open to remove the two screws behind the silver stickers on either side of the camera "shutter". Now pry the slider housing apart as with the base.

How do I remove the LCD screen from a Samsung Blast?


you must take the back cover of and remove the six screws to access the lower portion of the phone. Once you've done this remove the qwerty keypad. When you slide the phone back down you should see the back of the slider and two additional screws. Good luck.

Faceplate


Found this on Howard Forums. Sorry no photos.

CHANGING HOUSING/FACEPLATE:

Take off your battery, unscrew the screws on the back of the phone with a T6 screw driver.

Pry off the back plate,lift up circuit board gently(be mindful of flex cable) remove the flex cable from mail board by lifting brown part by the connector,

Unscrew then next 2 set of screws(be careful of flex cable!) remove the LCD board from the faceplate.

Now put the LCD Panel into the new faceplate. Find the new back slide and put your sliding rails on.(you may also put the slide magnets on from the old housing) carefully thread your flex cable through the opening.

Snap the Back slider on and then screw in the screws, then take the keypad housing and screw it into the slide rails.

Reconnect the flex cable by putting the brown hatch up(gently with finger nail) gently feeding the cable into the connector until the white line is about to the end of the connector.

Then put the brown thing down and apply little pressure.

Put the mail circuit board back into the phone with the headset jack going in first.

Then snap it back into place.

Transfer your speaker over the the new back housing with the prongs facing up.

Then screw on the back housing.

Replace battery and your DONE!!!




Best of Luck.
