To me it doesn't seem to be a software issue though still
for
Soft Reset: *#7780#, 12345 and then Yes.

Full Reset: (clears everything off the phone memory!! Be sure to back up your contacts!!): *#7370#, 12345 and then Yes

trun off your mobile then press green button + * + 3 + power on button for formating mobile

I would recommend check out for repair options for your phone

Sir,
if you are aware of updating firmware then you can upgrade otherwise please take it to Tech so they can do it for you because if you are not well familiar with it then it would be more worse than it is.
another thing, mobile never would be in previous position once housing is replaced on it.

Good luck.

This is a common issue in Nokia 7373.

The reason being "Software corruption".....


Even if you reset to factory settings, it would not solve your problem.

Try one thing, Update the firmware.There is a slight chance you might get it rectified.

usually you need to send it to nokia service centre, they would set the issue for you.

More likely, we can try if the issue would be resolved by updating.

Thanks for using Fixya.

    To understand the reason :)



    The phone uses two magnets which are located behind the lcd screen to sense when the screen has been swiveled away. There are two sensors which are built into the keyboard which senses the change in magnetic flux. I guess that there are two so that one can determine to which direction the screen was swiveled. So what could happen, is that the keyboard does not make proper contact with the main board within the phone and this can be the cause to the problem. It seems like when too much pressure is applied to the keyboard over time, that the contact pads on the keyboard wears out. So by replacing the keyboard pcb, the problem would likely be solved. One could of course try to fix these pads. One other possibility is that there is something wrong with the magnets behind the lcd. Either missing or misplaced or they are so old that they do not have a sufficient magnetic flux any longer, but I guess that is less likely....

You need to use Nokia Communicator cellphone...to fix this issue.

In that mobile you can format the MMC even though it has password protected.

Once you have formatted the MMC you can use recoverprofor all software to recover MMC data.

Nokia 7373, Powers up but the LCD displays 2 vertical lines.


Your display circuit is broken, even if the LCD-panel,
seems to be ok the display is damaged.

Your broken display might shortcut your phone,
making it unaccessible with the broken display in place.

This is a very common problem in Nokia phones.
The only way to fix this is to change the display.
You need a T-6 Torx Skrewdriver to do the job.
You can find displays for fair price at :

Permanent upsidedown display Nokia 7373


somehow the files got corrupted, you will need to have the phone reflashed to the latest firmware. The problem is it is BB5 so only a limited number of service centers can help with it.
If you don't find someone local, let me know and we can arrange it for you - sales@horizonwirelessonline.com
