My mobile phone won't turn on?

My mobile phone won't turn on?

I switched off my mobile phone like usual before I started work this morning. Then when I tried to turn it back on at lunch, it would turn on but would not reach the sign in screen but remain blank until I decided to turn it off and try again. I tried this several times but it did not make any difference. The phone is relatively new but is nearing the end of its 18-month contract now. It's a Nokia 6220 :smileyhappy: All help and advice gratefully received! :smileyvery-happy:

Welcome to the forum!

 

Have you tried leaving battery out for 10 minutes and replacing?

 

Does it make any difference if memory card removed?

 

Although you would lose all data, as a last resort you could try keeping the following buttons *, 3 (number button) and talk/green key depressed whilst powering on the phone and do not release those buttons until you see the Nokia "shaking hands" logo.

It still turns on like before but still won't go past the 'Nokia' screen before reverting back to a blank/white screen when normally it would proceed to the network screen and then ask for my password.

WSOD = White screen of death is never good news and looking likely that visit to Nokia Care Point is necessary and consequently your data is probably going to be in jeopardy.

So if you want to avoid Nokia Care, try the reset mentioned above.

Is 5200 a Symbian handset? If not, then that's why the trick that was mentioned above doesn't work for you. Sorry, but you have to visit a Nokia Care point.

5200 is S40 phone, so indeed Nokia Care Point is the way to go.

Re: My mobile phone won't turn on?

I have nokia c5-00 based on s60 3rd edition, when i switch off it doesn't get switch on. Although it vibrates but further the screen is blank, after trying the switch on button many time it sometimes get switch on which i only think is due to my luck.. Please sought it out.
I also took my mobile to Nokia care point and they told me the problem related to power (don't know exactly) and after that my mobile start working properly for some months but now again the above mentioned problem start., and moreover after getting repair it from care point, headphones in my mobile also stop working (they had taken out the IC of headphone from my mobile as told by my cousin who is mobile engineer)..
Pls sought out this problem and also tell me action against that Nokia Care point (if possible)..
