My Lumia 800 will not power up using the suggest tricks in the other thread. I've tried holding the reset button for 10 seconds, I've tried to hard reset the phone, I've tried plugging in and out the USB cable while holding the power button, I've tried all kinds of combinations of pressing this button then that button and nothing, I've tried using different USB cables, I've trying charging it from my PC, my laptop and my wall socket and still nothing.
It was working for about 1 hour since I got the phone today. I'm not impressed with this at all!
What charge is on the phone when shipped, maybe my phone is completely dead and needs to charge for x amount of hours before it will turn on. I can't find any answers to this only try the suggested tricks in the other thread.
Whats going on Nokia?
My best suggestion is to do the following :-
Plug the phone into charger and leave it for two hours.
Then unplug the usb cable
Hold in the power button for as long as it takes for the phone to switch on.
Hopefully you should be good to go after this

just had a very similar experience - tried wall charge, laptop, different chargers holding buttons in.
Then I took the SIM out and put it back in - all working again - the battery shows it had run out of charge - really hope this helps!
I had same problem as this, the "holding the power down while plugging it in" seemed to do the trick. Its weird that the phone charge was at 100%. Massive nuisance that the alarm didn't work while it was in the 'I'm a brick" mode.
I also faced the same problem, but after long google tried the steps of URL #http://geeks.ms/blogs/jlguerrero/archive/2012/10/1
