How to Solve Nokia Lumia 800 Vibrator Problems?

The vibrator type used in Lumia 800 is known as Linear Vibrator, and is fitted over the motherboard of this phone, hence its removal and testing is very different as compared to other vibrators. However the problems of this vibrator are same as the others.

Problems

There are only two types of problems that a vibrator of any phone faces, these include:

  • No Vibration.
  • Low Vibration.

Reasons of Problems

  • Vibrator might be damaged due to any kind of moisture, water or physical damage.
  • Problem might be due to Vibrator IC; as if Vibrator IC is found to be faulty then your vibrator won’t work at all.

Workaround

  • Check vibrator settings / sound settings, as your vibrator might be turned off! It normally happens when you accidentally change your phone’s profile.
  • Restart your phone and check, as most of the time a simple restart gets the job done right.

Tools Required

  • Multi Meter.
  • Heat Gun.
  • Plastic Separation tool (For Disassembling your phone).
  • Star Screw Driver (For removing Lumia 800 board and disassembling your phone).

Hardware Solution

For Low Vibration

  • If you are encountering Low vibration problem in your phone then you need to change your vibrator, as there is no other solution than that.

For No Vibration

  • The very first thing that you need to do is to check the continuity of the vibrator’s positive and negative terminals, however you can’t just check the continuity between positive and negative terminals directly, as these terminals are under the vibrator’s shield. In order to check continuity between the two terminals, you need to check the continuity between above mentioned points (Point 1 and Point 2). If there is no continuity then change vibrator.
  • In order to change vibrator, all you need to have is a heat gun, as vibrator is placed over the motherboard. Gently heat the vibrator and remove the entire vibrator module.
  • Gently heat Vibrator IC and check, if it still fails then replace Vibrator IC.

The above steps are surely going to resolve your problem. Hardware solution of this problem is surely very simple, although it is way much different as compared to other types of vibrators. Normally a phone’s vibrator doesn’t go out that easy, but if it does, all you have to do is to follow the above mentioned steps in order to overcome this problem.
