My phone stopped working, none of the buttons work apart from the red disconnect call button, therefore I can't unlock the keypad. The flash light at the back randomly comes on.
I removed the battery several times, then put it back in and its still not working.
P.S.. Its been like that for about a week and then randomly it started working today...for a few hours and now the same thing happens again!
Is there anyone that could help me? Please
I have that same EXACT problem. I think our phones are dead pal.
Water spilt on mine though. I immediately took out the battery for like 2 days. During that time i placed in in a small bowl filled with rice grains (I heard that 's supposed to help with getting rid of the moisture). Afterwards I tried it and it worked at first for a few hours but now its doing exactly what you described!
i have never dropped in water. my phone started working again, for about 2 weeks and it has stopped working AGAIN like 2 days ago, never buying a nokia again!
Dear all, I have been using Nokia E5 and it was great. The last 2 months I installed Whatsapp application and it was working perfect. All of a sudden, it started hanging whenever I press any button. The flash light comes and go randomly and currently I can not even unlock it as the keypad doesnot work. I suspected virus, but I am not really sure. It seems this E5 has a common problem!!!
Any assistance will be appreciated.
Could only suggest that you use Nokia Suite to backup your files by going to Tools and then Backup then reset device by keying in *#7370# followed by 12345 (default Nokia lock code unless altered by user). Try device without restoring "Settings" as may re-introduce software corruption.
