I don't think you can enter the code if the phone does not go to the desktop (homescreen).

Re: E71 Hard Reset

While pressing * 3 and the green call button, press the power button. Hold the four button for about 30 seconds (or until u see the phone powering up) This will hard reset the phone.

Re: E71 Hard Reset

Just to make it easier, the power button does not have to be held down in order for it to restart.

Steps:

1) Hold down the green call button, the * key and the 3 key.
2) Press the power button while still holding the three buttons in step 1.
3) Once the phone boots, you can let go of the buttons and go through the set up wizard and set up the time and date.

turn your phone off.

 

hold down * key and 3 key

 

press and hold down power key (green call button) while still holding down * and 3 buttons.

 

you can let go once the screen powers up.

 

The phone will reinstall it's OS. this will delete everything you have on the phone (contacts, messages even some bundled software)

The green call button is not the power key on the E71 - it has a separate power button. So the question is, for an E71 do you hold down * and 3 AND green button while pressing the power button, or just * and 3 while pressing the power button (which is not the green call answer button)?

 


If I've helped you, you can thank me by clicking the green 'kudos' star on my post. Cheers.

Re: E71 Hard Reset

May be some people didnt understand the procedure of (Green+3+*(star)) buttons. all you have to do switch off the phone, Lift the bettery a lil bit up from terminals now press the above mentioned buttons on the Keypad serially, Connect the bettry & Immediatly Switch on the phone dont leave these three buttons until ur phone lights on with Nokia Logo.

Thats All,

I tried the same Method thanks to Every one

Re: E71 Hard Reset

Alright I'm done with the hard reset as mentioned in previous posts. I restored the backup I made earlier on my memory card but it restored each and everything, can anyone explain me how can I restore the contacts & messages alone and leave the rest as fresh as it is after the hard reset? :smileyhappy:
