Hi, I have a Nokia 5500 Sport that dosn't turn on. The reason for that problem is a firmware update failed! The cellphone blocked during the update and after a while the computer gives me the message that the connection between the computer and cellphone is lost! I try to update again the phone several times but without success, because the phone is not detected by the Nokia Software Update. When i try to turn on the phone, a red light appear in joystick pad for a few seconds and disappear again.

Your phone is dead but you can fix it by taking it to a cellphone repair center. They can flash your cellphone so that the firmware will be fixed. Updating your firmware is simple as long as you have sufficient battery because when the update has been interrupted, it will result to what happened to your phone. Also make sure that the usb cable will not be moved..
If your phone became disconnected during a firmware update and your phone no longer turns on/fully boots up, then unfortunately your phone is likely "bricked" and will need it to be re-flashed. If that's the case, the best bet is to find and visit a Nokia Care or service center. Do-It-Yourself re-flashing can be done, but requires special cables and software which maybe more cost and trouble than its worth.
Unless you've done this already, before you give up completely try the following:
Removing the battery and turn the phone on as normal. Wait for a few minutes until you're absolutely sure it won't boot up. (This is a long shot but worth a try.)
I have somekind of same problems, but I made a few solutions too: 1. You can open menu if you just press the menu button ONCE and NOTHING ELSE. I think it's caused by memorycard if it's full of stuff. 2. Ok, this may sound kind of weird, but try to blow or **** the microphone. It helped me.
