Re: How to hard-reset Nokia 5530XM ?

these are the official available codes at the moment not referencing the 5530

 

1.. *#7780# - Restore factory settings - resets all the settings to the default ( you will not lose any data) Make sure you back up your data as you will lose all of it when you perform option 2 or 3 on this list. The default code for ALL operations listed here is 12345.

 

2.*#7370# - Reformat your phone (out of the box, tho keep in mind that most newer nokia phones at least n series, e series and s60 based phones have udp - user data preservation so not ALL data may be lost. still it is a good idea to always do a back up of your stuff.)3. This you perform as a last resort. Nothing else is working.If the phone is not showing any activity, proceed with hard formatting , turn off your phone, hold the following buttons while pressing the power button. (the default code is 12345)

 

 

 

3. hard reset - hold the following buttons * (star key), 3 (number button) and talk/green key. turn on the phone and do not release those buttons until you see the Nokia boot up screen. once you feel the phone power up you can let go off the power button while still holding all three buttons ( for Nokia 5800XM - use the following buttons to do a hard reset, /GREEN/RED/CAMERA keys pressed all at once on power up. this will only work on 5800's that have firmware version 20... and up. ) For Nokia N97 (unofficial version but works) is SHIFT /SPACE BAR / BACKSPACE while holding the power button. Again do not let go until you see the handshake screen.

If these codes are not working the only thing for you to do is contact your Nokia Care Center/Service for assistance.

thanks again, the problem is, 5530XM does not have any buttons on screen, there is no green or red hard-buttons, so maybe we should use the camera key with volume keys, I've no idea, maybe I'm gonna contact Nokia Care.

"use the following buttons to do a hardreset, /GREEN/RED/CAMERA keys pressed all at once on power up" don't work.

 

Do you have a solution ?

That s fun,

 

Mine does, they are supposed to be under the screen and the camera button to the right of the phone. But they are only green and red when screenlight is on.

 

Good Luck!

Re: How to hard-reset Nokia 5530XM ?

Hello, I have the same problem, the screen is not responding so no hard reset can be done with the pad code, does anyone knows how to hard reset using the buttons available (camera, volume, lock??) in the 5530?

Hmmm... so there is no hard reset for nokia 5530...

 

Is that a firmware issue or an engineering mistake?

Hi to all.

The code *#7370# works just fine and does that it should do on my Nokia 5530. No data will be kept on your mobile, so, create a good buckup first.

Hi. Did you first search in the following directory for the missing programmes? Menu>Internet?

In my phone (firmware V 20.0.080) after the formating with the *#7370# code the HI5, Facebook and Amazon application icons are in that folder.

Hey Xiang32,

 

I formatted my cell phone a few times, and even after the firmware update the icons (including facebook) are still there... I live in belgium so i guess you have the same firmware as me, or is your cellphone provider locked?

No pow, the Facebook icon is not still in the "homepage" of the phone, and I mean it is not in the quick start menu in the "homepage". But you are able to change it.... Did you search the app under the Menu>Internet , as I told you? Did you find it or not, I have not your answer. My firmware is Greek, but, it should be irrelevant...

My device loked up in the startup screen. I solved this by removing the memory card, booting up, inserting the memory card back in and then removing the application files that made it lock.

 

Hope this helps.
