Touch Screen Not Working - SAMSUNG GT-S5233S Mobile Phone

I had purchased a SAMSUNG GT-S5233S Mobile Phone sometime in August 2010. I told that story in my post SAMSUNG GT-S5233S MOBILE PHONE - A REVIEW.


Yesterday suddenly the touch - screen of the phone stopped working, nothing could be done with that, though the other features were full functional. But as you know, in absence of the screen menu the phone is almost dead! I searched online for remedial help, but got no fruitful result! Then started the common practice! Restarted the phone - opened the battery, SIM, memory card - reinstalled them and restarted the phone - but all in vain! Finding no other alternative today I rushed  to the nearest SAMSUNG Mobile Phone Service Center. There they changed the screen only and it again started working. That was a hardware error. I also put a screen guard (cost `150/- only ) as they advised.

  2. "...what exactly was the screen replacement " -
    The Screen here means the 'touchscreen' we refer to, the electronic visual display system. it's in a particular a hardware part of the phone. As because my phone was within the warranty period, I had to pay nothing. But as far as my knowledge goes, it is something around `1500/- in Indian currency. Thanks...

  5. samsung mobiles are the worst ones in reliability. I purchased 2 mobiles of samsung ( STAR and 5233) worth rs 10000 each and first one was repaired 4 times including full screen and motherboard replacement, and second one now got defective touch screen just after 10 months of use..will never buy samsung mobile in future..

    1. I just got the same touching issue, what I did, just rubbed your touch screen and then see what happened, it worked for me.

  6. Hello Everyone
    I am from India and using Samsung Galaxy Y. Some days ago, I went to Samsung Service Centre, as got some water damage. And they checked that, and told me that the phone touch and jack are destroyed and have to replace these. I said okay coz my phone was under warranty. But they told me that they would charge me 4000/-. As it was near the half amount of new phone’s price. Then I went to another service centre and they told me to charge 1600/-. So I gave my phone to them as they were charging less amount then first one. But my some of friends told me that they have charged me unnecessarily. Because if our any product is under warranty, the company pay for their repair. So I contacted the centre for same but they didn’t respond me for my issue. So, I filed my complaint in Consumer Court. I just hope for great help from their side as soon as possible. I just shared my experience to aware you guys. I hope it worked.
    Thanks!
