Repaired my Nokia 9300 Myself...

on Feb 14, 2009
Yes i have a Compass box mobile. Nokia 9300. :) After working faithfully for 2 years the external Display just went out. Blank white light. Was operating the cell with the internal display from last 3 months. You may ask didn't you go to repair it...?? Yes i Did. One whole day i was roaming Mangalore going to each Nokia Care just to get that answer that they don't get parts and all the crap stuff and they just cant repair. They just never want to open that Handset.. Damn Buggers lazy people..... :@

So Finally the day came. I took it on my own hands... Went to a friends mobile shop (Ya this friend suggested me to take it to Nokia care as it's a delicate set and he refused to open it also), Took his tool kit and opened the mobiles outer part by myself. Taking the whole risk of making it go Catapult I simply took the chance with high risk.. Opened the external panel of mobile by unscrewing 4 screws and slowly opening the lock (Open the single lock and lift it, the double locked site releases itself) and i can see the display with a small connector. Removed display out from connector, asked friend which display is this. He told this is a 6020 display. He gave me one of the displays he had, We tried it on my Nokia 9300 and for my shock, It worked... Ya man It worked....
So finally taking risk and making my cellphone work again was a good feeling for me... Now i know who is calling on the external display, and i can read messages easily.. no need to switch to internal display every time for every task.... I feel so happy... I am on Cloud number 9 on this Valentines Day... :) Just because my cell is back and Working... Now i just need to Upgrade the Firmware of my Nokia 9300 which is at 4.53(04) to a new Version 6.22... How..?? Will see, maybe again i have to do it myself as Nokia care guys are just good in showing their hands Open and Empty for me...

To update your firmware you might want to try Nemesis Security Suite or Nokia Software Updater :)

@Cj Firmware Upgrade is not supported via Nokia Software Updater as it supports only the latest Phones :(.
Have to see about Nemesis Security Suite, Thanks For your Reply.
