Question about ZTE Cell Phones

1 Answer

My brand new zte merit z990g phone keeps reseting itself over and over again. Even after a hard reset (battery out for a few minutes, back in and power on) it just shows ZTE logo then the TracFone WIreless, Inc logo with power up sound then goes black and powers up again over and over... black then showing the TracFone Wireless, Inc logo again and again... Please Help. Bought it new from a store a while back that was going out of business and held onto it for few months to wait for my other cell plan to expire to transfer my number to this one, so that means no return to exchange.

Sounds like the system image is corrupt.
you are gonna have to locate another image from the internet, plug the phone into PC via USB tether cable, and perform system update using either official software or perhaps a hacker app.

SOURCE: my phone will not power up past the tracfone blue logo screen what should i do??

The below steps will resolve many small issues.1.Power off the phone.
2.Press and hold "Vol+", "Menu", and "Power" key until the phone goes to recovery mode.
3.Use "Vol+" and "Vol-" to move the cursor up and down.
4.Move cursor to "wipe data/factory reset", press "Back" key to select it.
5.Now move cursor down to "Yes - delete all user data" and press "Back" to select it.
6.The data will be erased.
7.The cursor will be on "reboot system now" at the end, so just press "Back" key to reboot the phone normally.
WARNING: All user data will be completely cleared; the phone will be in a factory reset status.So before you reset backup data first!! gud luck!!

SOURCE: nokia 1100 resets its self

I believe your phone is fine and all others experiancing this type of problem. This will typically occur after you have enter wrong codes. Even perhaps if you have taken the SIM chip out and attempted to try it in another phone, then put it back into your 1100. If you call Tracfone they will tell you that you need a new device as they told me. I refused that notion and simply tripped the device as I have done simularly with other devices for a long time. Dont take it to the shop first or reset to factory settings or get a new phone just yet. When the phone resets and turns on immediatly preform a manually shut-down of the phone. This should discontinue the phones cycle of turning on and off. Take the batt out and put it back in if you need to. Manually turn the phone back on and immediatlly toggle between pressing the volume keys the enter button and the clear button in sequence untill you can get to the menu, or just press the clear button. "Long end short" get to the main menu as quickly as allowed. This must all be done in a quickly performed sequence before the phone decides to reset again. Get into your menu, go to your prepaid option, go into code entry mode. Your safe!!! You should notice that when you make it into code entry mode the phone stops resetting. I attribute it to the idea that tracfone network aka (telecom) thinks that you have spent some more $$$ on their pre-paid mins. So the phone has stopped resetting once in the code entry mode. Wait a few minutes. Then exit out of code entry mode, and resume normal function. Your phone will have stopped random reset and work normal again as you successfully tripped the system!!! This is a system problem or some standard protocal the system runs!!! If a couple minutes in the code entry mode does not work. Try again just give it a little more time. Not sure for same on all phones in all areas-
