Samsung D600 dead after disassembly

Hi all – I tried to replace the screen on my Samsung D600 just now, but stopped after removing the internal ribbon cable as my screwdriver wasn’t quite the right size for the next set of screws, and I didn’t want to damage them. Unfortunately, having put it back together, it’s dead… is there any obvious stupid thing I might have done?

The ribbon cable was only taken out at the main circuit board end, and has been replaced carefully – seem fully inserted.

On the first attempt, the screen sort of came on, but was a blank, faintly white screen – any clues there? Then O took it apart again to make sure I’d done it right, put it back together, now nothing

I understand your choice to try and perform this type of repair yourself to try and save money but sometimes your new issue does occur.

Opening the casing yourself invalidates any warranty and introduces dust into the handset as your not in a protective atmosphere. Internal motherboards etc of handsets are fragile and any amount of things may have caused the issue.

Take the handset to a cellfone shop or at the very least a market trader to see if they can diagnose and rpair the handset.

At the worst you have learnt a costly experiance.

Good luck.

Thanks for your advice. No, not a costly experience – you can pick these up for £25 on eBay fortunately, and I got this one for free. The screen was full of dust, so I thought it’d be interesting to find out if I could sort it. Looks like I couldn’t… but that’s the trouble – having someone else fix it in the first place was likely to cost more than the phone was worth!
