N70 Crashes & Won't Power On

I have had x2 Nokia N70 which whilst both connected to my laptop (it's a clean laptop no viruses, as upto to date with Anti Virus Software and also used only at work for which there is a very tight firewall), each has suddenly, after being connected for a while, files (.mp3 clips) have been transfered, the phone was sync'd with my outlook and also I have sent text messages (All without problems).

I am now unable to power on the phone and it's dead as a dodo.

I would like another one, so it will again be return it under the 14 day money back option, but this is becoming annoying.

Can anyone help please?

Any advise suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi seraphim,

Thanks

I have the exact same problem. Was transfering an image using the "Create Wallpaper" software and then edit that image using the software on the phone.

The phone wont start at all no matter what I do (try to start in safe mode and a hard reset - no luck)

Re: N70 Crashes & Won't Power On

Hi exactly the same thing happened to me. Was connected by cable to my PC (incidentaly this took hundreds of attempts to get the synchronisation software working), the phone was getting updated with the new software. Half-way through, the phone shuts down and hasn't been able to power up since.

Anyone know what's going on?

Basically what has happened is that the firmware has been changing as the phone switched off, so you don't have working firmware in the phone and it can't power up.

Solution - send it to Nokia to get it fixed free of charge (it is their fault it has stopped working etc.)

Should be able to get the nokia support number from the website.

The same thing has happened to my n70 - can you tell me whether the reloading of the firmware was successful? Please tell me that it was and is now working perfectly! At least the backup of data to my laptop worked.
