    You really cannot switch that on by yourself. Your phone is empty. try
    to bring that to a service center, a reputable nokia care center
    because ordinary repair shops are having a hard time reflashing dead N
    series phones. I have the same problem as yours and until now I am
    hoping my phone can still be repaired.

HI,

Your problem may be that the software installation (New firmware)

got interrupted, which is bad news.


Nokia is hopeless when it comes to service. They

seem to be happy with telling you to buy a new

phone. Wonder why.

But there exist some ways to try it out.


**************************************************

*****

The first thing to try is to remove the phones

battery and leave it out for at least five

minutes. Whilst doing this take the opportunity to

reboot your computer in case you need it to help

with recovery.

Now re-insert the battery and try to switch your

phone back on. If it works then all is good .


if not ,


The next thing to try is a hard reset. This method

only applies to S60 smartphones with keypads.(N73

=possible)




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, hold the power

button for a second to switch on the phone.

4. Release when the phone shows the nokia hands

logo or shows other signs of life like the

language selection screen.

It may take a few attempts and very flexible

fingers.

if not

you have now tried everything possible to recover

from the failure yourself. The last thing for you

to do now is to contact a nokia care point in your

country for help

or

You'll have to take it to a repair shop where they

might be able to fix it.

Hope this will help you.

I am updating my N73 mobile software, but after updating .cellphone is not on.


I am sure your handset does not completed is updating during installation from net. Reason network or data cable connection disconnected from computer. Same problem was happened with my Nokia N73. If i am not wrong then when you press your power button, nothing is happened. Its look like a dead body. Don't worry just visit Nokia service center and tell them you want to install the update version & hand over the phone. You can't install the software from home, because your hand set complete dead. Its takes 2-3 hours for installing. But as per there work load may be its take 2 - 3 days for service center people.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Hello,help me,please.I was updating my n73 Music Edition via Nokia Software Updater,when my PC stopped working.Then,I held my mobile,but I found it turned off by itself.I need your help,please


It won't turn back on huh lindsey? The same thing happened to my n73 while I was updating it. During the update process, it's formatting the entire phone operating software and replacing it with a new one. If the process is interrupted when it hasn't completed yet, it won't turn on anymore. What I did was get my phone reformatted by a technician I knew in the mall. This was in Philippines, so you should ask around where you can get your phone reprogrammed. Let me know how it goes.
