C5-00 dead while updating firmware in ovi suite

Hi, I work with a Nokia C5-00 operator locked (Movistar Spain) one month ago. When I connect it thru Ovi Suite (in a Windows 7 box), a firmware update was available, and yesterday I tried to do the upgrade.

 

Ovi Suite detected my phone, and a few moments later, backup its contents, and started to download the new firmware.

 

Troubles came when Ovi Suite began to do the update, as it failed with a "Network Connect Error" when started to do the process.

 

Screen of my phone went completely white, and after disconnecting the USB cable, the phone simply died, except when I press the red button (it makes a vibration, but screen doesn't turn on). If I reconnect the phone to the computer, Windows try to install a "Nokia USB ROM" device, but unsuccessfully.

 

Any advice? Can I make a sort of "reset" to revive my phone?

 

Is this error covered by my warranty?

 

Regards

Its covered by warranty, but to fix it you may have to do a hard reset which will delete everything in the phone. This is likely the same procedure they will first try in a care center.
