Nokia E7-00 system error after hard reset

Hi Guys I did a hard reset on my phone today as my phone would freeze at times but it seems that it has given me new problems

 

  • Firstly, Everytime I restart the phone, the system error message comes up on the homescreen, I would click ok but it comes up 3 or 4 more times
  • Secondly, I cannot access my contacts at all, whether I try accessing it  from the menu or from a shortcut I have on the homescreen.

 

I have tried to solve this myself...

  • I have re-installed the phone software after doing the hard reset, 
  • I have restored my phone from the backup I did, 
  • and I have rebooted the phone a few times but I still get the same thing

 

The software is Symbian Anna, I understand that there is a Belle update but it is not yet available for the phone that is on the network that I am on (which is network Three)

 

I have had this phone since september 2011 and it is under warranty. This is the first time I have encountered a problem.

 

Other than that, everything else works fine; I can install apps and make calls and use the internet etc. I just want to get rid of the system error message, and have access to contacts without having to send the phone off for repair!

Trouble is "hard reset" removes data from both C:\ & E:\ and if taken to Nokia Care Point device could be re-furbished with 1.3GB of material restoring device to 'Out of box" state.

Happy to have helped forum with a Support Ratio = 42.5

Re: Nokia E7-00 system error after hard reset

The issue could also be caused by the restore ? I never do a full backup and restore when doing a reset as the restore may apply settings/data that caused an issue. My advice would be to backup Calendar, Contacts and Notes ONLY. Dial*#7370# followed by 12345, if required, then re-install the latest firmware using Nokia Suite. After this restore your contacts etc, then set up the phone manually, hopefully this would resove any issues, bit of a pain, but should work !!

Good Luck
