E51 - Firmware update issue

[ Edited ]

Hello

 

after updating to the new firmware (400.) I have the following issues:

 

* SMS text messages which contain access point settings for my provide do not open... I get the message that the message format is not supported. I could easily open the message before, and applying the settings using the pin code

* wifi access hangs, it connects but then hangs. There is no way to switch it off. I have to turn the phone off and on again to get it going

 

is there any way to revert to the factory firmware or something like that?

 

Thank you

No unfortunately I don't believe you can revert back to older or original firmware.

Re: E51 - Firmware update issue

a few days ago, last Thursday I think.

 

Another issue I have is that the usb connection seems to fail sometimes. For example I load my messages with the communicator, and after 30 something s, they disappear. I can't send any messages using the software anymore either...

 

Aargh, if it isn't broken, don't fix it I presume

Re: E51 - Firmware update issue

correct, there is no way to revert to an older firmware but you can try reinstalling the most current firmware and see how that works for you and if there is any change. remember to back up all your data ofcourse. the only place where you could revert firmware is nokia care pionts but they are not very keen on doing so as it has potential for more damage then usefullness. it will also cost you to revert back. it is definitely not adivsed to do so at all.

Re: E51 - Firmware update issue

 Hi,

 

I too had that error several times, and fixed it by removing both my SIM card and my Memory card from the phone.

 

Hope it helps, don't forget to do a full backup before you upgrade!

Re: E51 - Firmware update issue

upgraded to the latest firmware and now the music player stopped working. not sure if its the firmware's fault or some other deeper internal issue.

Re: E51 - Firmware update issue

Hello,

 

I managed to fix it yesterday.

 

Apparently there was an incompatibility with some of my phone settings and the new firmware.

 

When reinstalling the new firmware, and only restoring messages, notes, contacts but not the settings everything worked fine.

 

It took me a while to setup everything again, but wifi and usb works again flawlessly.

Re: E51 - Firmware update issue

Hi all,

 

here is my finding with new fw 400.34.011 26-05-2009:

- default voice recorder time limit <=1 min! Only High quality <= 1 hour. (may be ok)

- sometime light does not switch ON. Only reload helps.

- my old bluetooth headset stop working (may be coincidence)

- phone reload two times during two days!!!  Never see that before.

 

 I'm regret that I did upgrade. Don't do it without real necessity. No way back without Nokia Care Service.

Hello

 

I've Updated my E51 firmware to 400.34.011 but occures the following problem:

 

The Wifi icon is always on the top of my phone screen( i think the status bar it called)& also it can find the WLANs which are available but it can't access any pages thru internet.

 

is there any way to fix this problem or the only way is to revert to the privious firmware(200.34.36)

 

Thank you

Re: E51 - Firmware update issue

I upgraded to the new firmware and having the same issue with the music player on my e51! I'd really like to see Nokia correct this issue. In the mean time does any one know of a GOOD, free music player?
