I flashed my N95 to Euro 1..... gone through a fer updates (up to v.12) and i recently checked the supplied control.... nothing, no mic operation, no buttons working.

Anyone had this? any fixes?

if you open up the little device which is a pain in the arse you will find a battery which will be flat so replace it and all will be fine again

yes i am sure, if you open it up you will see for yourself, the battery is the size of a 10 pence coin model number CR2032 also its held together by a little screw under the clip on the back which you cant get to so just force it apart carefully.

I initially couldnt believe this myself, but it's true: Nokia has placed a rather fat battery inside the AD-43 control unit as you can see from the attached picture.

Since my control unit was already dead, I had to remove the clip on the back, unscrew it et voilà, the battery.

Considering that a lot of N95s had slider problems and an overall bad build quality (already had to drop in my N95 to a Service Centre 6 weeks after purchase), it's astonishing that even a rather simple device such as a headset dies just after 4-5 months in use. And I really don't use it that much!

Battery voltage reads 2.04V instead of 3.x...

*sigh*

Mines not working since firmware update either... I guess just a coincidence then? Time to change the battery?

What's the best way to get the clip off?

The clip hinge seems to have a tiny shaft going through it. Could you drift this out with the world's smallest drift?

Mines always been like this, just thought it was dodgy and forgot about it.

How to I get the clip off without snapping it?

I threw mine in the bin this morning thinking it was goosed... just hope it didn't land in beans or anything!

Actually I notice poor radio reception using it (compared to headphones directly into the socket) could that be due to the battery thing too? Seems unlikely.

You can buy a new one on line for a tenner - may do that - bet the battery will be about £5 anyway!

3Shirts, have you just upgraded to the new firmware too? Just trying to rule out this as the problem.

BTW: Don't think the battery should effect the radio reception.

Lol, yes you can, that is what I did.

A drawing pin works fine.

The other alternative to access the screw is to drill a hole right through the plastic clip so you won't need to force this stubborn pin out...
