Let me guess ... you dropped the phone at least once recently?
Well, I did the same, and the first three times I got it working by smaking it face-up on the table (literally!). However, this morning was the last straw, and I could not get it working again.
However, I now know this is an easily repaired problem that someone with very basic skills and tools can tackle. With the earlier crude remedy I suspected a loose contact, and this was confirmed by squeezing the phone just right between the power light and the speaker I got the backlighting to work. To fix it, the steps are:
- Remove battery cover
- Remove battery
- Start disassembly by removing top rear shell (the bit with the lens cover) by gently prising with a small screw driver. There are five catches - one middle left, one middle right right, one center bottom, two at the top +/- 1/2" from the edges. Gently remove the in the same direction as you would the battery.
- Remove front shell by undoing 4 screws now visible on the rear of the phone, one at each corner. Itis a funny torque screw, but I used a small flat and it worked OK
- Turn the phone face up. Right at the top and about 1" from the left there is a red screen connector (you'll see the copper of the screen's strip cable terminating there). Gently press down on this connector to reconnect, and Hey Presto!
- While you're about it, remove all the dust and muck in the phone.
- Reverse the steps for re-assembly
If you do not feel up to it, take the phone to an agent or repair shop with these instructions. It is a 5 minute job and they should charge accordingly!

Your device is experiencing software issues. You try by removing the battery for 30 seconds and then replacing it. This is soft reset. If the device still fails to load software, then you should visit your local repair shop for a replacement.

Check if battery on the phone depletes fast. If there's nothing wrong with the battery try poercycling the phone (turning phone off and removing battery from the back and insert battery after 1-2 mins). If the problem persist try master resetting the phone. Remember that by doing the master reset it will delete some of your saved info on the phone.

That means your phone got a corrupted software installed to its memory. A hard phone reset can solve this problem. Typically a nokia symbian series phone can be formatted using this code *#7370# then the default key is 12345.
Hope this could help.

Testimonial: "yes, it did get corrupted by a software and I had to give it to some workers at nokia to fix it, I lost the info on the phone (except memory card)"
SOURCE: my nokia x3 wont start
Remove the battery and the SD memory card, check the card for corrupt/virus infected files that have corrupted the software. Now have it scanned on your PC and remove/format the card.
Reset to the phone and check , if the fault comes back then the software must be installed on the phone. have this done at the Nokia care/support center.
