Re: My phone hangs and failed to start

Have you tried to format your 6600 ?


Turn of the phone, Press and hold " 3 " - " * " and " green ", then turn the phone back on while these buttons are pressed down.

Its kinda tricky, but can be done.

If this doesn't work, you have to bring your phone to your local Nokia Service-Center and have them repair it.

My nokia 6680 can't start up is telling me to contact a retailer

Press the " *, Green, 3 " it boots the phone like normal.
You can make phone call and everything.
(it actually BYPASS "contact retailer" screen)

But when it auto shuts down or low in battery.
when you switch it on again.
It comes back to the screen
"Phone start-up failed"
"please contact retailer"
So the above mentioned is the temporary solution. For permanent one please contact customer service center.

Dont forget to rate me. Thank you.

Mobile startup failed . contact the retailer

Your phone's memory card must be infected with virus or has some fault. Please remove the memory card and try to start the phone again. If it goes through, please back up the data in your memory card and format it. In most cases, this procedure solves the "Phone start up failed. Contact the retailer" error.
I'd advice you to format your phones internal memory as well, it will flush out any errors present. save your "phonebook" data somewhere and Make sure your phone's battery is fully charged if not plug the charger in and proceed. NB: interrupting this process might render your phone useless. So, be careful.

To format press *#7370# it will prompt you for security code, enter it and the phone will reboot. Your phone will be reset to "factory settings."
