| | i 'accidentally' broke my standby button....
Please Login to Remove!
i bought a replacement earpiece cover from CNN a while ago with the intent of replacing the original one because i scratched it....
i used the special plastic pry tools to carefully unclip the cover from the body. then there was the glue. i noticed a thin black ribbon that is connected to both the standby and mute buttons, but didn't notice that it was an electrical bridge that connects the 2 buttons, so i cut it at each end. the reason i did this was because it was attached to the glue and coming off with the cover i was removing.
so i start up the fone after replacing the cover, and the standby button doesn't work anymore. but strangely enough, the mute button still works when on a call.
the screen locks during power up unless i start pressing esc or any of the other 3 keys when it starts verifying security software (in this case, the screen does not lock)....i found the workaround since i can't use the mute key is to hold down the power key, then the screen will unlock and i can enter my lock code.
i realized what i did, so i peeled off the remainder of the ribbon from the old cover, i tried to reconnect the ends to where i separated them, but it still won't make the electrical connection properly, so i lost my standby function.
what's the most reliable app that works well to lock/unlock my screen ?
is there a way to buy the body of the phone with these buttons pre-assembled ? or at least the button assembly ? don't see it on CNN's web site....
