THL W200 "Can't connect to camera"
Solution for "Can't connect to camera".
Sometimes camera do not work on THL W200 (Sometimes both cameras and
flash). Rebooting device helps temporarily. Sometimes you can see
vertical noise stripes on camera window. As somebody posted: sometimes
removing and putting back cover - temporarily solves problems. If You
have this problem here is permanent solution:
Be aware if You do this on Your own or by some technician not from THL You'll loose Your warranty.
(There'is a warranty sticker on a one screw). And as always - I take no
any responsibility. Do it if You want, don't do it if You're scared or
haven't disassembled any small part electronic equipment.
First I used manual from "showtopic=477275&st=3420#entry25822546"
from 4pda.ru to disassemble phone's case "plate" on 12 screws I have
noticed that soft small pieces of rubber which is attached to case plate
on inner side is surely overheated and melted, so it doesn't press well
on camera's flex cable socket (I have also noticed heat coming from
this place on heavy phone load):
(Photo 1) - One melted small piece of rubber
(Photo 2) - Place to put sticker (in red on photo) rectangular cuts.
(Photo 3) - I placed them in two layers because of them being very thin
(both - 0,3mm) (And i know that I wasn't accurate to cut well )
Problem disappeared completely. So real fix would be to replace those melted pieces of rubber with temperature resistant ones.
