The ribbon refers to the flex cable which (basically) connects the bottom half to the top half of the phone, and it is something that slider and flip (or folding) phones can't do without.
Flex cables are prone to tearing.
The bar code reader application can be downloaded free from the Nokia N-Series web/wap site. Since the N80 does not have an autofocus camera lens, you have to switch to macro mode to make the reader work.

what is a ribbon??i m using ths fone for a years n its stil working well.
if i wasnt mistakin ur problem with the screen is because of teh memo card.. i once used a 2 gig memo card and the phones screen kept going white and stuck till i changed my card.. so good luck with that...
The lag experienced whenever you send out messages had been rectified years ago with the SMS Accelerator made by Nokia and can be downloaded from both the NSeries web and wapsites. You also get the SMS Accelerator and the APServer when you install fring on your N80.
About those asking of the N80's video and photo qualities versus the N70, the N80 may take better pictures but the N70 still takes better video what with a dedicated chip to support its camera module and is something the N80 does not have.
If you want to test whether your N80 is having a Flex Cable (ribbon) problem, try sliding the top part up or down very slowly. When the screen turns white halfway, then you got a problem (even if everything goes back to normal later). Other symptoms include having a faulty 2nd camera, inaudible keypad tones (even when set to the highest setting), and a faulty earpiece.
Hope those things help.
when I saw this phone on the advertisement.
I really got fascinated...I like its shape and love the whole features of it.I bought it with out any hesitation.But after using it for a few months I started to have problem.especially when sending text messages.It takes time before it will sent.Even in calling its always stuck.So after having it for 18months I decided to swap it to another unit.
if some one having bettery problem and mobile is being stuck, i can solve it. here is ur problem.
2-things are causing this.
(1) don,t charge the mobile more than 2 hours or don,t leave (sleep)while the mobile is in charge
(2) stop buting songs,video,games....etc in ur mobile every time(day) this causes virus and bettrey problem.
i have this phone for a year and didn't have problem lately, but i have a problem regarding the display screen cause can't lit up and but on and off for few seconds then off all the time.
u can change the casing but u need *Star type* screw driver to change the case. If battery facing problem after change new one, Try buy original battery because the BR-05 battery recently facing problem like unable to charge to full or drain so fast or full but only can stand 5min after that empty. but n80 also drain battery kinda fast(1day+). This Phone still perfect for me even me change phone every 1 week+, by the way, 10 over 9(FLIP, TWIsT,Slide) phone having ribbon problem, already normal.
I have this phone 1 year ago. I'm very happy with the feature for this phone. But i always facing the skrin problem because of ribbon. I already changing 4 times my ribbon with rm150 each. Also i can't changing the casing itself. The batery also got problem where the original batery already broken. So, as a conclution form out of 10, i choose 7 for this phone.
Gayanath if me not mistaken u having problem with the ribbon, me look around alot forum, mostly they have same problem because the ribbon. Try Less Use the slide, try unlock by power button, and save all contact, so can less damages the ribbon on it. but the ribbon cause quite cheap around MYR50.
i have this phone for 2 years but its really a good phone,but the only problem is the ribbon on it.
I have a small problem with my Nokia N80. That is sometimes it gives a error message mentioning "System Error" and then the phone gets stuck. The screen also goes white and I have to remove the battery to switch off the phone. I appriciate your valuable comments on this matter...
Me using third day including today, not big problem, first need master reset because the color run off(if u having green line or color run off than try master reset), 2nd meet battery life(Br-5 battery, so what u think? ), third is unlock keypad keep appear but i think it respon to my Pouch(magnet on it) tat why. but it great phone, nice camera, so small n quite slim if u compare with another pHone(dun compare with slimer). afterall nice phone, love it.....
I have this phone for almost 2 years now. It's a good phone. It almost have everything that a cell phone can offer. Only the 'loading-time' takes forever when you switch on.
hi! Some time ago, i took my fone to be fixed and when it came back, it had totally different settings. When i switch it off and on again, it always requests for date and time. How do you get it to have an auto update so i don't punch in those things everytime i switch it on?
