Smile Trial and Error

You will need a new display to see what is happening inside the phone really .
Otherwise it will be trial and error . To start this you will need a PC and cable connected to the phone which is still properly working .
With display not working do this :
Insert SIM card
Power the phone ON and wait a little time
Enter PIN + acivate (D-Pad down) and wait a little
Enter Security Code + activate . (In case code is set)
Connect to PC - preferably in Nokia PC-Suite
When PC sees the phone , press D-Pad down (activation of PC-Suite Mode)
Repeat pressing D-Pad down untill PC-Suite starts copying the Data .
I know : this is working in the dark . So trial and error .....

Regards jApi NL
