It must because firmware problem. This could be due to partial installation of updates. It would be better to go to your nearest Nokia service center and get it repaired.

Thank You

The phone should be okay, the moment the above is done.

Note that your computer must be connected to the internet when performing the above.

Also read and follow instruction on how to use the software updater on nokia site.

If the above does not work, it means you need another phone.

My nokia 6300 will not power up.

You can try updating the firmware using a Windows XP computer, which will also reset the phone to factory defaults (and thus probably fixes your problem).

Download the Nokia Software Updater from:

Connect your phone to the computer using an USB cable, run the program and just follow instructions. Please note that you'll lose anything stored in the phone's memory (but not the SIM contacts !).

Whenever you still have warranty, you could take it to a Nokia Care center and have them update/reset your phone ...

U can get rid of this problem by resetting the ntire phone to factory settings, but before that make sure to backup all your database which is important as resetting will wipe everthing off your phone and bring to factory conditions.

the code u have to type is *#7370# and security default code prompted later is 12345 and u are done the phone will now reboot.

if the above doesnt solve your probem, download update manager from nokia website for your specific model and then after battery is fully charged with a sim inside the phone, attach a datacable and start the update, preferentially the update should be done with a laptop or a computer having backup power against power outage other wise your phone will get screwed.

the entire process known as reflashing will take around half to one hour depending on your internet connection.

the above should definitely solve all your problems
