Re: 5250 Hard Reset

Try pressing down answer call+ reject call+ camer a button and hold those down while you press the power button. Keep holding them down untill you're past the nokia handshake logo.

It will wipe your phonememory, but I'm sure you already know that.

Re: 5250 Hard Reset

I see, it was just a bad hunch I got. Will have a look at it. Have you tried removing the battery for a minute beofre putting it back together and tried turning it on again?

doesn't work.
I heard some where that,because the theme might be corrupted or not compatible with my phone,thus it hang at start up and doesn't go to menu.

And it doesn't even get passes the handshake,it only shows the word "Nokia"

 

 

Thanks for your quick reply though.

Yeah, but it wasn't much help was it? :smileywink: I'm checking it out atm but I'm not sure if there is one as the end button also is power. Anyway, did you install the theme on a memory card? If you have done that or have a memory card try pulling that out and check if the phone boots without the card installed. If it does, you should probably format the memory card. If the theme still shows as installed you could try a soft reset if you can get the phone.

 



What you could try but what's possible to be just BS from me is various combinations:

call, menu, camera and then on button

call, camera and then on button (press those two first).

Call, camera, volume down + on
call, camera, volume up + on
call, menu, volume up + on
call , menu, volume down + on

or menu, camera, volume up/down + on

Wouldn't that be all combinations? :smileytongue:

Sorry for my mess, but if you have the time, you could try them all. If non of them works I would contact a Nokia care point. You can find your nearest care point by starting locating it here:http://europe.nokia.com/support/repair-and-recycle/repair/care-points

Give them a call and hear if they have any clue about this:smileyhappy:  If you should get a good answer I would be happy if you could post it here!
