Try this method

When your device fails to start, it show one of these symptoms:

1. Totally dead.

2. Trying to restart, LED activity only.

3. Failed to start, a white screen with an error message.

__________________________________________________ ________

1. Physical damage, water is the worst enemy of delicate electronic device. Try drying it with a desiccant and replacing the battery. If there is no activity, you can still try the last ditch technique, nothing to loose anyway.

2. Your device is not able to start, something has gone wrong and the OS is corrupt.

3. Geeks call this an "Uncaught exception error". That is a polite way of saying, the last thread has terminated, the OS has halted because it is corrupt.

In many cases, the Application Loader can be used from Desktop Manager or Windows.

__________________________________________________ ________

The good news, starting from scratch, you will be back in service in a couple of hours. i cant turn on my phone - biggrin.gif

Note: Windows 7 beta is not compatible with these instructions.

1. ...

2. You need to install a BlackBerry OS file that is specific to your device. The original version, as supplied by the carrier, is the safe choice, but you can use any model specific version.

3. Once the OS has been installed, you have to prepare it for the device.

Select Start / Computer and select the Drive C: Icon.

Open Program Files / Common Files / Research in Motion / AppLoader.

Navigate to the bottom and delete the file Vendor.XML file.

4. You are now ready to restore your device. Verify that BlackBerry Desktop Manager is NOT running. Plug the device directly into the computer's USB port.

We are about to venture into the bowls of the beast. Windows is not suitable for this job, we are going to invoke the Command line interface with an option switch. This was the way all 'computers worked prior to Mcintosh and Windows.

Windows XP: Start / Run... / Command

Windows Vista: Start / Command (type this into 'start search')

The screen on my phone went completely black and will no longer turn on from what iv tried i cant hear or seen anything and there is no sighn of water damage what do i do?


I will try and keep this short. I have a Motorola Razr (puchased in the USA..... this will make sense later) and I lend it to my brother when he visits me from Canada. (Roaming charges for Canadians using their phone in the US is insane) He too has a Motarola phone that he brought with him. The Charger that he brought with him was for a Canadian phone. Apparently, you cannot use a charge for a Canadian phone, on a USA contracted phone..... I'm not sure why, but it is the case. He attempted to charge my USA phone with his Canadian Charger and the screen went blank. The phone was still on and could even receive calls. Even when the calls came in, the screen still remained blank. I won't bore you with any more details.
Here is how I fixed it:
- Unplug phone from Canadian Charger
- Take the battery out of the phone.
- Plug in USA built charger (without the battery in the phone)
- The phone attempt to charge
- Screen should turn on. Wait till screen indicates (Cannot charge battery)
- Plug battery in.
- Hold down power button to turn on the phone.
- Phone should be in working order.

I don't claim to be an expert. This may only apply to my particular situation. Hope it helps if you happen to use the incorrect charger. Take care.

This is because your battery is so flat it doesnt even have the power to turn off properly,and the program does often get "stuck" when this happens. Remove the battery, recharge the phone and it should be ok.

Broken screen =(


Contact NOKIA Authorized sevice center nearest in ur area and they will remove the broken one and connect a brand new screen but first enquire abt the charges and stuff if ur mobile is not in warranty and even if it in warranty
Check whther u would be charged or not
Coz in many cases they dont charge u at all
But u might be charged as screen broke as it was not any problem that came with the phone ....
Dont go to any local engg to fix the problem, they might put a cheap or a fake screen which will work but they will not give u any waranty ...
VISIT http://www.nokia.com/
and check which is the nearest service center in ur locality

Interesting problem


make sure the pins going to the usb port on it are all ok and they are not touching then, find someone with a similar D600 and relace your mem card and see if there is a difference, then try the battery and also note any difference. if its the battery, wich is likely, get it replaced, however there are cases of ic damage from faulty usb's, so if a working battery or mem/flash card dont work, send it to a repair man, after backing up all your personal stuff onto computer via BLUETOOTH. good luck!
