    i have recently obtained a 6610 of a friend who had no use for it as he
    bought a new one...
    he told me it worked but when i had a look the power button on the board
    is missing.. that dont seem to be a problem as i can short the terminals out
    for a sec till it turns on. the problem i have is the lack of display, the
    screen is blank. the screen and keypad lights up but there is no display.
    if anyone has any suggestions on what could be the problem or
    how i could repair it it would be apprricitaed. Thanks. David.

    Aneuploidy said those words of wisdom from the arcane mages in
    sci.electronics.repair:
    I think the best you can do without service info, is checking the display
    connections or try another compatible LCD.

    True, my Nokia 51xx series phones are prone to display problems. I've had
    several, and they all have over the years developed a problem where the
    display blanks out, and I have to 'reboot' the phone to get it back. Very
    occasionally, I can twist or tap the phone and get it back, but usually I
    must turn it off, then back on. It's always some sort of physical shock or
    bump which blanks it out. I had one repaired at my cell companys service
    center, with a display from an unused phone. When I got the loaner unit
    back, I played with it a bit. It appeared that the display itself was okay,
    just the connection to the phone was at fault. The display simply
    'contacts' the circuit board--held on by metal tabs. Apparently this
    mechanical connection gets faulty over time and lets the contact get
    intermittant...no idea why turning the phone on/off re-establishes the
    connection, or why I can't just 'shock' it back.

    I don't know if your series phone is the same, but I'd think it likely. As
    for the missing button; most Nokias have interchangable faceplates so that
    users can customize their phones. Many of these come with a new rubber
    membrane keypad, which might replace your missing power button.
