Nokia 3230 My Nokia 3230 when opened, lighthed-up and got sounds but no display. Per suggestion of ZCHLUGGER, i opened the case (housing) and tinkered on the LCD and its connection to the mainboard. Detached the LCD connection from the mainboard, cleaned it and reconnected again. But it didnt work. The LCD just lighted-up alright but just the same, no display. What should i do next? Somebody out there, the EXPERTS, got more suggestions or recommendations what to do next?

    I am using Nokia 3230.

    When i switch on my phone it is not moving further forward from NOKIA msg and it is giving some sounds.

    I am able to get my IMIE no by using the code "*#06#".

    I am not able to format ny phone even using 3key boot trick.

    I am not able to use the code *#7073# because it is not giving me any options to give Ok or something else.

    I am not even able to restore the factory settings also,by using the respective code.

Yo, BDEATH. Greetings from the Philippines. Thanks for the #2 solution. I already followed the instructions on But how can i see what appears on the has no display whatsoever. It remains lighted-up...but no nothing. I's time to visit the cell phone shop. What do you think? Any more suggestions? By the way, are you a phone repair technician? I might ask you some suppgestions one of these days...also about mobile phones. I still have old model, low end cells which I think worth tinkering with. Repair shops charged us exorbitantly...its expensive here, you know. What do you say?
