Hey. I have this Nokia N900 lying around, and I kinda want to fix it. The stuff that doesn't work is the camera (doesn't even start), touch screen (stopped responding to anything, heavy scratches) and the USB port (really loose, it's almost impossible to charge it), accelerometer (doesn't work at all).

Is it possible to replace/fix the above? If so, what will be the cost? And finally, where can I find these parts that'll be shipped to India?

Thanks.

Nothing more?

Anyway, if you want repair it by yourself, first requirement is good soldering capabilities to fix the usb port.
Then, digitizer:

Camera problem could be just a sofware issue, if not:

If you want to ask someone to fix it.... probably i suppose the cost would be bigger than the N900 "commercial" value.

I remember the camera problem surviving reflashes, so... I think it's hardware.

And I want to fix it myself - otherwise I wouldn't have bothered. :P

Accelerometer?

Thanks, BTW.

The cameramodule is the same as the one used in the N97. Maybe you could replace it with if it isn't a software issue.

Replace camera and dizitizer and reinforce the usb with little solder or follow the great usb fixing thread .camera will cost around 700rs and touch plate around 1200 you may get lower or high prizes though but quality can suffer.

Awesomesauce - so I can expect a total of around Rs 2000, right?

Also, nobody is saying anything about the accelerometer - is that replacable?
