Volume rocker broken in N95 8Gb

The volume rocker on the side of my N95 8GB is no longer working, so wondered if there was any way of changing the volume on things like radio, music player and even when in call or the ringing volume

Any help appreciated

Mine is broken too. The button to reduce the volume broke off the main board on the phone. Luckily I still have it so I could solder it back on at some point.

In the meantime, I connect the hands free that came with the phone to change my volume when watching videos and listening to music. Volume for phone calls can be changed during a call by pressing left and right on the directional pad / button (Ya know, the one just under the screen).

Ringing volume is changed in the same way under Profiles.

Hope this helps.

Can I ask then... does the flash work on your camera? Mine doesn't, and it stopped working about the same time as my volume button breaking off, so I'm wondering if I solder it back on it'll complete the circuit and fix both problems...

dodgy volume rocker

Hi
I too have had this problem occur to me a week ago. I was quoted £60+ from CarPhone Warehouse but googled for repairs in my local area, Glasgow.

They told me that a repair would be done free of charge as Nokia phones have a 2 yr warranty in place. I took it in personally to a large companny called TRS, 32 Fountain Drive, Inchinnan on Thursday evening and got it back today sorted.

I bought my Nokia 95 8gb off Ebay on close to 2 years ago and have updated firmware, provider, etc and had no problems. Their number is 0141 812 1111.
Best wishes guys

Cheers

Jim

@albie, if you're phones still under contract, you should be able to return it as faulty to your Service Provider. At least I was able to do that with O2 for exactly the same fault and they sent me a recondition unit in return. Granted, I then had to reinstall apps and personalise it again, but it still had about 6 months to run on my contract, so didn't want to last it out with that fault.
