Re: how to format nokia 6680...

This code will fully format your phone wiping all data.

Hard reset:

1. Switch off the phone.

2. Hold down the following three buttons: Green (the call answer button), * button, and '3' button.

3. While holding these buttons, press the power button and switch on the phone.

4. Release when the phone shows the nokia logo or shows other signs of life like the language selction screen.

Chances are that this will not fix the vibrator as it's likely to be a hardware failure that has caused it to stop working. A care point/service centre can fix it.

Re: how to format nokia 6680...

Hello,
I just made a big bobo...I was in the process up updating to newer version on my nokia 6680, and the USB cable came loose, so lost connection, had to disconnect, now the phone does nothing, then I turn it on I only get the NOKIA word comes on and fades off, then comes on again and fades off, this is all the phone does now. I tired to format it using the e keys (green, *, and 3 key), tried many times, but nothing is happening, the phone was working perfect prior to this update, now it's not working at all, I love this phone...PLEASE help me bring it back alive. Thank you.

Re: how to format nokia 6680...

take it to the authorised service centre and then they will reload the software. it has happened becasue during updates the phone should never be disconnected.

It is always better to do your firmware updates from an authorised service centre rather than a web update.

You will have to take a trip to one as it's the only way to get it working again. If that isn't an option then it's time to buy a new phone.

Re: how to format nokia 6680...

Sir, my phone won't start and it displays a message that says "Phone start-up failed. contact the retailer.  I tried your procedure how to hard reset, but it doesn't seem to work on my phone. I also tried changing my keypad because i suspect that one of those keys is not functioning the way it should be, but still nothing. Is there any situations that the hard reset procedure won't work? Do you think this is a hardware Problem rather than corrupted files causing the phone won't turn on? If yes, what should i do next to fix my phone? I really hope you will help me..

 

Thank You in advance..
