Question about Samsung SGH-E900 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

'Soft Buttons' aren't working.

Hi, I have a Samsung SGH-E900. Supposedly, there are 'soft buttons', which I am led to believe are basically backlight buttons. These buttons aren't appearing, and when I press the space in which they are meant to appear, nothing happens. Does anybody have any idea what is wrong with it?

There could be a problem with sub-boar, or with components next to SIM card reader. Check if all of those small components (black and brown ones) are there and I'll bet with you, that one capacitor will be missing. If there are no scratches around sim card reader on the board (marks of abuse) and your phone is in the warranty , than will be repaired for free.

Key pad buttons

Can't believe this, simply go to "Settings" and then "Sound Settings" and then "Keypad Tone". You can change the tone or turn it off completely.

As per symptoms it looks like keypad IC fault or CPU falult. But it is true it is hardware type of problem and should be treated by skilled technician. It is not advisable to try if u r not skilled.

E900 joystick buttons and number buttons dont work? Take IPA or strong alcohol and a teeth brush and clean the mainboard and the sub-board. NOT LCD.
