Question about Nokia E61 Smartphone

Keys not working

Hello.. some of the keys on my nokia e61 keypad, when pressed, are not registering...e.g. when someone is calling me and I press the green (YES) key, the call is not getting picked up. Similarly, the "A" key is not working when pressed. Possible cause is sweat damage from face when speaking into the phone in hot conditions. Please propose solutions.

    fixed (for now)

    turned off the phone, removed battery, and placed in front of a table fan with air-flow directly on the face of the phone for 2-3 hours. everything works now.

There's a foreign object between the keypad and the sensor pad ... dust or lint or a hair or a scrap of paper ...

This is an easily repaired problem that someone with very basic skills and tools can tackle. The steps are:

- Remove battery cover
- Remove battery
- Start disassembly by removing top rear shell (the bit with the lens cover) by gently prising with a small screw driver. There are five catches - one middle left, one middle right right, one center bottom, two at the top +/- 1/2" from the edges. Gently remove the in the same direction as you would the battery.
- Remove front shell by undoing 4 screws now visible on the rear of the phone, one at each corner. Itis a funny torque screw, but I used a small flat and it worked OK
- Gently dust and clean the entire phone
- While you're about it, make sure the screen connector is properly engagde. Turn the phone face up. Right at the top and about 1" from the left there is a red screen connector (you'll see the copper of the screen's strip cable terminating there). Gently press down on this connector to reconnect.
- Reverse the steps for re-assembly

If you do not feel up to it, take the phone to an agent or repair shop with these instructions. It is a 5 minute job and they should charge accordingly!

Good luck!

My N73 shows a message like this"phone memory is full" but i have deleted ALL of my datas in phone memory, i really dont know what else should i do!!!


Hello
You might have to format your phone memory.

Unlock your Nokia N73's keypad by pressing the left soft key found just above the green call button and then pressing the "*" or asterisk key.

Press a series of five keys on your keypad following the sequence "*7370#" without quotes. Assume that you are dialing this as a number. The N73 should show a confirmation message right after you press the "#" key.

Read the Warnings section before proceeding and choose the "Yes" option from the confirmation message to tell the Nokia N73 to format the phone memory.
