Phone won't turn on ¶
No matter what you do, you can't get your phone to turn on.
Drained/bad battery ¶
If your phone won't turn on, especially if it has not been used recently, you may simply have a drained battery. Plug your phone into your computer or AC adapter and see if anything happens. Ideally your phone will recognize it has been connected to a power source and charge its battery. If it will no longer charge, the battery must be replaced.
Bad display ¶
It is possible that it appears nothing is happening because the display is bad. If the buttons light up but the screen remains black, the display must be replaced.
Bad motherboard ¶
If your phone does nothing when plugged into a computer, the problem most likely lies in the motherboard.
Bad power button ¶
Sometimes the connection of the power button to the circuit board can be damaged, resulting in an unresponsive button and the inability to turn on your phone.
Screen won't turn on ¶
There is a giant spiderweb across your screen.
Glass needs replacement ¶
Follow our repair guide to replace your screen without having to pay a professional.
Camera is not working properly ¶
A black screen or blurry image is displayed when camera app is launched.
Photos are blurry or distorted ¶
The camera lens may be cracked or severely scuffed. Follow our guide to replace the entire camera unit as there is not a replacement option for the lens alone.
Camera app remains black ¶
You are either having software issues or the actual camera has lost connection to the motherboard. The camera may have to be fixed/replaced. Follow our guide and get a professional outcome.
No Sound Through Headphones ¶
You just want to listen to music, but nothing plays.
Check your headphones ¶
The problem is often not even related to your phone. Headphones often short out long before the headphone jack has any problems, so try using a different pair of headphones.
Bad headphone jack ¶
Sometimes the connection to the motherboard is damaged or the inside of the jack becomes stripped. Either way, you are going to have to replace the jack.
Phone will not lock/unlock ¶
The phone is unresponsive when trying to lock/unlock it.
Motherboard is malfunctioning ¶
If the phone will not lock/unlock the motherboard is most likely the problem and will need to be replaced.
Unresponsive touchscreen ¶
The touchscreen is unresponsive when touched.
Touchscreen will not respond ¶
If the touchscreen will not respond you can try turning the phone off and on. If this does not work you will most likely have to replace the touchscreen digitizer with our installation guide.
Unable to hear phone noises ¶
You cannot hear any sound coming from the phone.
Phone volume is mute ¶
If you cannot hear any sound coming from the phone try turning up the volume. If that does not work, check to see if the phone is set to vibrate.
Speaker is broken ¶
If the volume settings are not the issue then it must be a hardware problem. The speaker unit will need to be replaced using factory parts.
Unable to be Heard from Other End of the Line ¶
When you make a call the person on the other end cannot hear you.
Microphone is not working ¶
If while making a call the person on the other end of the line cannot hear you, check to see that the phone is not on mute. If the phone is not on mute hang up and try calling again. If the problem persists the microphone will most likely need to be replaced.
Trackball is unresponsive ¶
When using the trackball the phone does not respond.
Trackball is broken ¶
If the trackball does not work it will most likely need to be replaced using our installation guide.
Dirty trackball sensor ¶
If the trackball is jumpy or unresponsive it could simply have foreign materials jamming it's functionality. Follow our installation guide on how to replace you're trackball but simply clean out the unit first and test to see if responsiveness returns.
