Lightning bolt and Small Cog Wheel

Hey

 

I just bought Lumia 720 and unfortunatelly first boot didn't work. Phone showed Nokia logo for a few seconds and then went to Lightning Bolt with small cog wheel and it shows that for over hour!!! Nothing happens else. Phone haven't started even once. What that thing is and what to do about it?

Try this Reset : Press Power + Volume(down) keys until the phone vibrates (about 8-10 seconds). See if it switches ON ..

If not wait till the Battery is completely drained. Then connect the charger .. Leave it for about an hour and see if it has switched ON on its own .. Else try the reset once again ..

Re: Lightning bolt and Small Cog Wheel

Dear Nokia support team

I am a customer from India, Mumbai. I bought Nokia Lumia 520 on 3rd August 2013 from the authorised dealer - Zoop, <<owner being Harshad bhai>> , at Charni Road, No - 66331075.

As on 29th September 2013, which is close to less than 2 months, my phone went dead. As in, Only the logo of Nokia appears and pursuant to that two white cog wheels appear to be spin on the phone screen. It does not go ahead of the same. the battery is alwyas empty and I charge it, it becomes too hot. and the cog wheels appear again. I vchecked on your website and saw that this is a problem prevalent with many nokia lumia series phones and the solution is to go to customer care centre. However, when I went to the customer care center in Anajli Building at Opera House in Mumbai, they said that the phone will not be covered under warranty period and they will charge extra and that the motherboard is tampered, when it has not been tampered by anyone. They refused to help me and gave me an ultimatum that I either pay extra or my phone is dead. I have one warranty on, why should I pay extra.

Further, when I went to my authorised dealer, instead of helping me he decided to play a blame game and decided to mock me, I dont know if he is responsible for selling tampered products. Maybe you'll can check into the same and check whether the dealer is doing right or is a screwball and engaged into illegal practices.

Please help me. I need my phone back in shape as it is my office phone and I have emails and contacts on the same which are very very precious to me.

hiralshah169 - This being a User-to-User Forum ..suggest you to contact Nokia India on 080-30303838 [Working Hours - 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. (Monday-Sunday, including public holidays)]. Hope you get a favourable assistance from them. 

BTW, If your phone is with you, what you can try is let the battery die completely. Then remove the SIM and put the phone on charging. Wait for upto a couple of hours and see if it switches ON normally...or at leat the Battery charging icon in display. If so, try a reset : Press Power + Volume(down) keys until the phone vibrates (about 8-10 seconds).
