Question about Samsung SGH-E900 Cellular Phone
Hi do you need to resolder the ribbon
Posted on Aug 27, 2008
Sounds like you need a new ribbon cable 1st buy ribbon cable from ebay here are the instructions to change your ribbon cable remove battery/sim card undo 4scews tiny cross heads they are slide phone open ans at the bottom of the phone theres 2 more scews to undo these are under little plastic covers once removed starting from the bottom of the phone insert a thin wedge i use my fingernail just get it inbetween the bottom of the casing and slowly move it round the phone open the casing a little but not 2 faras you have 2 slide the casing off the tophalf of the phone once you detached the casing there will be a plug(loud speaker)just unplug this now you should be a stage where you have removed the back casing,we continue carefully prize out the main baord this will be attached to a ribbon cable so be careful remember to first remove the button and then run your fingernail where the buttons are affixed (there stuck to the casing) ok you have the main board free now turn it over so as you dont damage the cable remove the green sticker which covers the cable then you need a soldering iron to free the cable as its attached to the main board flip up the holding strip and remove the ribbon cable from the main board ok next there are another 6 tiny little screws which attach the sliding chassis remove them and remove the slidehousing ok now you need to undo 4 more screws 2 are in plain view the other 2 are hidden under the top plastic covers once they are removed the slide mech comes away freely and you can see where the the other end of the ribbon is attached again remove green sticker and desolder the pionts lift up plastic retainer and remove the ribbon replace with new ribbon and put back together the same way you undid it sound a bit tricky but its quite simple really. well i hope this helps mrjazon
