Hi there, I'm in the middle of doing a repair job on my Nokia C5-00.

 

I attached a new housing, and got it all looking nice and it works great at the moment, except the headphone jack doesn't want to work. When I attach an amplified source to the headphone jack I can hear sound except it's all scratchy, and faint and I can't make out a single word.

I'm not looking at getting a new phone, instead I want to get the one I currently have repaired. (I have a habit of doing my projects from start to finish)

My gut feeling is that one of the components on the mainboard related to the internal amplifier has failed. I have no intention of repairing this myself, as the solder components on the circuit board are very small and I don't have a soldering iron big enough to do that, and I'm scared I'll stuff something up permanently.

Question is does anybody know of a mobile phone repair company that specializes in repairing such problems, and doesn't cost the earth?

If it will be any cheaper to repair, I have another mainboard from an identical model that's totally stuffed (Won't turn on) I'm sure that the components related to the internal amplifier should be fine.

I was thinking of Omnitech, since there's one located just down the road from us and I've heard nothing but good stuff about them. However, I get the feeling that they only replace replaceable parts ie screen keypad circuit board etc but not actually replace components on the same board.

Anyone know anything about this?

Thanks

Uhh, it might be cheaper to buy a new one, given parts + shipping + labour..
