Startup problem, start screen keeps restarting


I apparently got this wet according to the Telus store when I sent it in, they said it'd cost 180 to fix due to water damage. Now I took a look at it, its brand new, theres no water damage, I believe It's a software problem but im not sure.

Anyway the problem is whenever I start it, it displays the start logo like the telus logo, then reloads it to the telus logo again and again and again... Over and over, and the only way to stop it is to remove the battery.

Any ideas. Thank you.

Best Regards,

Re: Startup problem, start screen keeps restarting

Oh tell me about it!. Geat phone, but now mine just displays the telus logo as well, and I know i didn't get mine wet. Taking the battery out is the only way to turn off now. Of course this happened no more then a week after my repair agreement ran out. Had to buy another phone at full price, now the 8100 sits on a shelf with all my contacts on it and no way to get them :-(.

Try bitpim to get your contacts out, but I sure would love to have that phone if you can't use it.. I need spare parts.

not sure with that model, but you can usually do a reset by turning it off and holding volume button and power down to restart if its an android.

I had to go to the Alltel store and apparently my phone had gotten a little wet, somehow. I do not know how though. And because it somehow got wet the warranty was voided and I had to pay $50 (only 50 cause I had insurance) for them to give me a new one.

China mobile

have a china made handheld double sim touch-screen phone. The device is Winkoy T6688. The touch screen got damaged and after reseting the device, the following notice appears after turning it on:

"Calibration wizard. You have to calibrate the touch-screen. Click anywhwere on the screen with your stylus to start calibration".

Of course you can´t but there´s no other option because it won´t accept any other input until it´s calibrated apparently. Does anyone know how to bypass this calibration wizard on start up?

Can't use mp3's as my ringtone

Send the MP3's to yourself in a message. The MP3 should be 30 seconds or less. One you receive the MP3 that you have sent to yourself, look under OPTIONS, you should see something that will let you save it as a ringtone.

"Downloading Telus now"

Seems to be a internal phone problem. Your phone is booting into the telus bootloader. Take it to the telus store and they will replace it

Nokia 6265i freezing issue

I've had the exact same problem with my nokia 6265i for almost a year now. I bought mine at Future Shop, so their express exchange program has now sent me my fourth nokia of the same model because I've had the same issue with every single phone. Clearly there is an issue with this model. If you bought it from Telus they may have a different program when the phone is still under warranty. If it's not, then Telus gave me two options. 1) get $100 off of a new phone (at non-contract p[rice) and renew your 3 year contract with Telus. (oh goody!) or 2) They are offering a samsung phone.. can't remember the model, you can phone them. But they are offering that for $80.00. In other words.. the phone is useless, and you will still end up forking out money either way. Telus will not make up for this. They told me to contact Nokia about the phone. I don't know how that could possibly help my situation. I'm done dealing with them until next month when the Nokia breaks down again.

I have no clue on what happened!

Sounds like a huge tech. problem, I would contact your purchaser instantly, have you tried taking out your sim card and seeing if it still does this? Another this, If your phone got wet, It could be doing this, It has done this to me before, and If it did get wet I hope you have water insured! Ways to get water out are putting your phone in the freezer for a day - That is, if it got wet.

Lg vx8100

I do not have a suggestion for you, only sympathy. I have been putting mp3s on my phone for about 3 months and there are always a few that seem to be corrupted. They will either not play or more commonly cause my phone to reboot. (even though they work perfecly when burned to cd or played through vlc or winamp) It goes to the telus startup screen and stay there until the phone flashes off and back on. I have tried re-encoding the mp3s with no change in performance. I wonder if anyone knows of a different media player for this phone. Have you called Telus? I know they are a pain to deal with but there may be options. Alternatively I might suggest flashing the firmware and starting fresh.
