No Response to Commands Entered Via Keypad ¶
Your Nokia cell phone is not responding to all or some of the keys of the keypad. Keys don't work or stick.
Drained/Bad Battery ¶
Start by checking the battery. Make sure it is installed properly and is charged. If it will no longer charge the battery may need to be replaced.
Dirty Keypad/Keyboard ¶
If the keys only work periodically or get stuck when depressed, there might be dirt or a sticky substance underneath them, preventing them from working properly. The keypad can be cleaned by removing the front case, and lifting away the thin keypad. This area must be cleaned carefully as it is right above the logic board and other liquid sensitive components.
Bad Keyboard ¶
If the keyboard is still not working, it might need replacing.
Bad Logic Board ¶
If your Nokia is still unresponsive, the problem most likely lies in the logic board.
Screen Malfunction ¶
You cannot view what should be displayed on the screen, either partially or completely.
Blank Screen ¶
First you should check the battery. A dead battery could always be the problem, and you don't want to waste time on more complicated procedures if this will do the trick.

Broken Side Buttons ¶
After opening the case these can be lifted out and replaced.
Poor Sound Quality ¶
