Galaxy S8 - No cellular signal

I replaced the cracked display on my S8 and re-assembled it. Everything works great except that I can't get a cell signal. I just the “no” symbol (circle with a slash through it) where I should get the signal strength bars. I’ve tried adjusting the various cellular network settings without success, but even without that, I’m pretty sure it’s a hardware problem.


Any ideas on how to fix it?

I also have this issue. The repair went as smoothly as a repair could yet, when I put the SIM card in I receive the no signal symbol, as well. This is the second one I've had do this but the first one was simply a bad connection. Has anyone ever determined if maybe a microsolder breaks on or near the connector on the motherboard that may just not be a visible issue?After all, it does take some pressure to connect those wires.

Its 2020 and still no traces of any solution to this problem. Anyone?? I am, unfortunately having the same issue!

Mine just happened out of nowhere. Just randomly got a no network service. Tried another sim, worked for a day went back to no network connection. *sigh

von

Same. 2020 and my s8 has been sitting on shelf for 6 months now because theres been no answer still ;(

von

@Rob C time to revive this question then. Give us the details about your case and let us know what is going on with it.

von

Swapped the screen assembly and reassembled and I get no signal whatsoever. No service. No visible damage. Replaced the cables and charger port but still no signal.

Perhaps you may have forgotten to plug the antenna cables back in from the charging port to the logic board?

Also if some antenna contacts are broken on the logic board that connect to the plastic antennas that go over the logic board and are usually held down by screws that can be your issue too.

Refer to step 21 of this guide:

I've checked and rechecked the antenna leads so it's not that.

Can you elaborate on the second point? Are you referring to the board held down by the screws in step 14 (above)? Because removing that was about as far as I got in the tear down. I didn't need to go further to replace the display.

von

Yes, step 14 the black plastic cover shroud that covers the charging port and has the loudspeaker integrated on it has the antennas for 3G / 4G (Cellular Signal)

von

Where are they exactly? There is a ribbon cable on the shorter segment but I thought that was for the speaker. I'm not trying to be obtuse but I want to ensure that I replace the correct part and not inadvertently break it again.

I have provided an edited image of the antenna contact locations on the charging port dock assembly:

Here is another one for the loudspeaker assembly which integrates the antenna with it:

I solved this problem on my S8 Plus.

After changing the screen the network was no longer working, then I tried to press the lower part of the phone (near the home button) and the 4g network started working, I disassembled the phone, on the second board(the smaller one) there are some pins, which touch the plastic shell, with tweezers I lifted them ( a little bit ?) to make better electrical contact, I cleaned them with acetone and a piece of paper.  then I reassembled the phone and it is now working perfectly! These pins touch some metal pieces in the plastic shell, to boost the antenna signal i tink.

I have tried all the solutions did not work for me

Then I took the phone apart and looked In side

on further investigation I found a loose flex cable on the mother board where the main antenna connects by the charging port on the left

Do you have any more info what that cable was to or where it is? Do you have a picture?

I think the obvious thing is to disassemble the device and put back together methodically ensuring that all connectors and antennas are replaced properly and that the antennas are connect to the correct points on the board and not swapped over.

Factory reset the device, update the software and test again.

If none of that works I would assume that there is some damage to the bottom board and would swap that out. Once swapped out I would software the device again and then test.

If all of that fails it really needs to go to a professional who may diagnose a PCB fault.

There's one solution that worked for me. I just changed the Sub PBA (charge port) and it worked.

Make sure you connected the antennas in their according places. There could be the possibility of a damaged charge port. Make sure you replace it with the correct version that corresponds to your device as there are a couple different variants. Look up the model number either on the back or in the settings and find the charge port that is compatible with that model. Good luck!

The problem is the charging port. First go in settings and check if imei number is showing. If it dosen’t then reconnect the charging port then the signal and imei would return

Perhaps these two cents may help you all. I too had this issue with my Samsung Note 8. I made sure my connections were solid and it still didn’t work. Gratefully, my old charging port worked outside of the actual usb port itself. I compared the new one versus the old one and my old one would connect to the network and the new one wouldn’t. That’s when I checked the model numbers. My device is the N950U model (for the US) and the new charging port I was trying to put in was the N950F model (for Europe and Australia). Oops! Verify that first and see if that may be the conflict. Hope this helps!

UPDATE: Received the replacement N950U charging port and the data reception is flawless.

Same problem. Happened all of a sudden. Cant even make emergency calls. I checked the coaxial cables and the metal contact points that contact the physical antenna (plastic part). Everything seems normal. IMEI is showing normally. Dont know what to do.
