Re: How to hard reset Nokia 5800 Xpress Music?

Hi Guys,

 

I have a problem with my Nokia 5800. I did the soft reset, but it didn't help me to solve the problem.

 

Then I try to do the hard reset, but it didn't work. I pressed the Green + Red + Camera + Power simultaneously when phone is switched off, then phone just boot up as normal. I didn't get chance to enter the lock code or select the country.

 

My firmware version is 51.0.006.  I don't know that didn't work. Please help me.

Re: How to hard reset Nokia 5800 Xpress Music?

Please make backup before applying this type of reset, since it will restore the phone’s settings to factory default as well as erasing all the data in the phone memory.

 

1st option

Soft Reset (when you CAN still use the phone's touchscreen)

 

  1. You need to use the touchscreen dialer to enter these codes:
  2. *#7780# if you want to restore factory settings only and it will NOT delete data.
  3.  *#7370# if you want to reformat your phone and delete all the data in it.
  4.  Press Select.
  5.  Voila, your phone is back to normal.
  6.  Congratulations.

 

Last option

Hard Reset (if you CANNOT use anymore the phone's touchscreen)


  1. You need to use the phone's buttons and your 4 fingers to do this trick. :smileywink:
  2. Switch off the phone. (Remove the battery if you cannot turn it off)
  3. Press the buttons: GREEN + RED + CAMERA + ON simultaneously (DO NOT LET GO OF THE BUTTONS) until you see the “Select Country” option after the Nokia's Handshake Welcome Logo appear.:smileysurprised:
  4. Choose your country, enter the date and time.
  5. Voila, your phone is back to normal.
  6. Congratulations.
Note:
If you were asked for a code, just type: 12345 (unless you change it):smileysad:

Re: How to hard reset Nokia 5800 Xpress Music?

Hey, would the default apps from XM 5800 be restored automatically upon hard reset? Now lemme xplain what's going on with my phone. I get an error when I try deleting a msg while in the reading mode. I have to go back to the Inbox to delete any particular msg. I cannot got to the previous or the next msg with the help of the arrows on both the top corners while in the reading mode (Error again, have to go back to the inbox to read the previous or the next msg.) I cannot select my memory card to store msgs. My phone freezes forever if I do so. Ultimately, I have to remove the battery from the back to get it back to the normal mode. I can only store msgs on the phone memory. The phone freezes up while opening up a new msg and I believe this makes my phone lose the frozen up time on the clock, ultimately delaying the clock (maybe 25-30 on each instance) which adds up in losing about 3-5 mins every week. Have given the phone into the service centers infonite times with these problems but to no resolution. :smileymad:

I really don't feel like selling it off for these reasons. I'd really appreciate if someone could help me with this.

Re: How to hard reset Nokia 5800 Xpress Music?

[ Edited ]

After a few updates my phone less hangs

but currently my phone delay a lot

I heard no more software update for this model?

Is this true?

 

Sometimes I dont know why

for some reasons my phone would say Don't removes the memory card without bla2~

I wonder why

cause I didnt even touch it, just that I saw the light on saying so...

What Is the problem?

 

Often when I unlocked my phone, the screen got lines with colours before this it was blank...

sometimes when ppl call also appear like this so I cannot see who's calling me....

Then, I hv to re-locked and re-unlocked then it will be ok

 

Will soft or hard reset helps solves these problems?

thx in advance

 

by the way my software version is 52.0.007

Re: How to hard reset Nokia 5800 Xpress Music?

Are these codes can only be used / entered while the SIM is inserted?

The reason I ask is because after I enter the codes provided, it displays that 'Unable to use network phone currently in offline mode.

 

You wrote "Press Select", since there isn't such a thing, did you mean to press the green button, or the the icon showing a handset?

Re: How to hard reset Nokia 5800 Xpress Music?

That's the only way to hard reset the 5800. Make sure you give it a few attempts. Depress those 3 first buttons before hitting the powerbutton. Hold those 3 buttons in untill youre past the Nokia handshake logo screen. Hopefully it works.

If not you will have to visit a Nokia care point for help.

It would have to be very early firmware version for Red, Green and Camera keep depressed whilst powering on until Nokia "Shaking hands" logo appears not to work.

 

Any Nokia Care Point can reset lock code to default 12345, although proof of purchase may be required.

Re: How to hard reset Nokia 5800 Xpress Music?

Hi, My Nokia 5800's touch screen is dead and doesn't respond to any touch what so ever. All other 4 buttons (red, green, camera, power) seem to be OK. I tried the 4 buttons hard reset. I got the "Choose country" option, but since my touch screen is dead, I can't go on from there... Somehow I get the feeling that it is a software problem, rather than hardware (I think the touch screen is physically OK). Any suggestions? Is there any software that can be installed that automatically starts the calibration process after that hard reset? Thanks, Eldad :smileyhappy:

Re: How to hard reset Nokia 5800 Xpress Music?

No. There isn't any software that can be used by the USER. You will have to take the phone to your local Nokia Care.

BTW, If the USB connection is set to Nokia Suite as default ( i.e. Ask on connection -->NO) then you will be able to connect the phone to PC and re-install the existing Firmware and confirm whether it is really not due to the software...

Re: How to hard reset Nokia 5800 Xpress Music?

Hi. I had some of these problems before , So now : install NOKIA SUITE v.3.4.49 ( Latest on July-07-2012 ). Connect your 5800 to the pc and let it find your mobile and make a back up of what you think is ipmortant for you ( Contacts mostly , You have many choices to make There ). Then check for the latest Software updates, and if you have the last one ( as you updated it before ) , You can now Reinstall it from within the Nokia Suite to Solve your problems. if after REinstalling the Phone Software ( 60.0.003 is the latest to me ) , and the Problem is not solved yet , you can Hard Reset it now to have a Second Chance for solution. I hope you succeed. Be careful to not lose the connection or power failure during this updates , and be patient . You can do the software update via Wifi , but if you have the latest version , you cant go any further from there. SO do it from inside the Nokia Suite for your last 2 Chances. Mine has Always been solved . having this handset for more than 3 years now. Just dont worry & Relax & there is always a solution to all the bugs for this Phone , Strong & Stable for long time , Having almost all kinds of abilities that new phones have today. Mostly the variety of Connctions you can have in every place is an advantage you have with this Good Prices phone. ( 5800 Xpress Music ) Good Luck.
