Bummy phone

Post by keymaker » Fri Jan 18, 2002 2:58 am

I got my new phone.
Doesn't work
He wants me to send it back<p>The problem is bad contactor things
u know the little black things under the buttons that make the contact when u press a button?<p>Neither one of them work on talk<p>I can press talk using the contacts from other buttons, and the talk contacts won't trigger any other button<p>I tried writing on the contacts with lead, didn't work<p>I had to screw a small screw into the talk contact things so when I push the button from outside the heads of the screws make the contact<p>At least it works,
Only it makes contact by itself all the time now<p>How can I fix this properly?

Usually the problem is dirty Contactor pads. Try swabbing the exposed traces and the carbon bads with rubbing alcohol to clean them. I have to do this on my calculator semi-regurlary.<p>Another problem could be a broken track, but I dont think so if screws work.<p>Eric CArson
