Hi Team

I think my niece pushed a whole bunch of buttons at the same time and now some of the buttons dont work. Seems like it's locked itself on vibrate mode. if you adjust the volume to max, then it automatically goes back down to vibrate again. Ive got a feeling one of the keypads is been pushed down so its on all the time. I thought i'd have a go at removing the keypad but dont want to end up bashing the phone and rendering it useless in the process.

No warranty as it was bought from trademe. Can anyone suggest a place i can take it or send it to get to fixed? Is there anyone on the forums who does these kinds of repairs. Dont want to take it to a Vodafone agent  and be charged some ridiculous figure to repair.

Any help much appreciated

Cheers

Update

I emailed mobilefonerepair and was advised theres a $50 diagnosis fee lol i emailed to say i already know the problem but they didnt have a bar of this so ended up fixing it myself. its well outside the warranty period so thought some DIY might help.

Bought some appropriate sized tools from trademe ($8.00) to open the phone and discovered the side contact keys (volume up/down) were pushed down hence stopping any other key from working. Lightly lifted the key off the metal contact on the phone and voila.. done . Phone repaired!

I can pretty much guarantee if this was repaired by mobilephonerepair, it wouldve been maybe another $50 or $60 on top of the diagnosis fee!
