N 95 keypad light and slide problem after body change

Hey guys,

I recently changed the front and back panel of my N95. After that i noticed that whenever i slide my phone up or down, nothing happens.. The phone remains in the same state and even the screen des not lite up..!! When i press some button, the screen and upper keypad show light but lower keypad does not have light..!!

Also, when i switch the phone on, the keypad light switches on with the phone and then goes off after the phone installs.. !!

What's the problem..?

Thanks... !!

That is absolutely amazing! I am searching the internet for more than a day to solve this problem and it seems that I am not the only one!!

I have exactky the same problem mate...

I changed the housing and then when I slide the phone nothing happens!!!

I believe that there should'nt be burnt leds or something else because at the boot of the phone I can see them lighting!!!

I really don't know where is the mechanism that turns the screen and the lights on when sliding.

I suppose here is a connection error with this one while assembling.

Any ideas on this one????

I have had the covers off my N95 to replace all the speakers, built it back up with no problems, it would appear that you have disturbed a connection, or the new covers are making one of the switches contact, just a guess really, try stripping it down again check all connections and possibly try refitting the old cases

Thanx hippyguyman!

I connected everything back and nothing happened...

I also put back the old case but the same problem...

It seems there is a connector somewhere I broke or moved...

If anyone knows where is this "jumper" or connector I would really apreciate it...


body, change, keypad, light, problem, slide
