@ Gaganpanwar - ONLY thing you may try is remove the battery (depending upon your phone model..) for a couple of minutes, insert and see if the phone switches ON .. Else, you need to visit Nokia Care..

Hi ImYourAngel,

 

The possible things you can perform to get your phone up and running is provided in this thread, message 2 to be specific and this is what it said.


radical24 wrote:

try code number 2 and see if it works. perhaps restore has your old phone imei imbedded somewhere and hence does not want to work i dont know. if this does not work take it to nokia care for assistance. the default is always 12345 and remove the memory card if doing formats and such.

 

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.
2. *#7370# - Reformat your phone

3. This you perform as a last resort. Nothing else is working.If the phone is dead proceed with reflash if not, turn off your phone, hold the following buttons while pressing the power button. (the default code is 12345)
re-flash - hold the following buttons *, 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

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


You can also try the below procedure given by Farby.
