Resets to as was when you first turned it on. Back up all you want to keep to another device as it will all be gone to never neverland

How do i fix?


This can happen for a number of reasons. You could have a virus on the device, the operating system could be crashed, there could be a hardware glitch.

I would start with attempting to boot the phone into recovery mode. You can follow the steps attached to do so. Once you get into recovery mode, try to select the option that says "Clean System Cache" and then reboot the phone.

If upon reboot it still gets stuck at the screen, boot back into recovery mode and do a factory wipe.

My nokia lumia 521 screen went completely black after my phone asked to update. How can I fix this


I had this happen on my Lumia 920 a lot. I pressed and held the power button till it finally rebooted. I seemed like it took a minute before it finally rebooted, so don't give up after 10-30 seconds. If that doesn't work try the power button and volume down button till it reboots. Some sites say this is a hard reset that wipes the phone, but as a last resort, I tried it when the power button alone wouldn't "wake it up". When it rebooted everything was normal, so either it isn't a "hard reset" or it doesn't do the "hard reset" when the phone is locked up and the screen is black. I never tried the power and volume down reset when the phone was operational, so I don't know.

My phone keeps rebooting


I had the same exact problem but I hard reset my phone and no more problem. I have to say though, I hard reset my phone again and it started again but I hard reset my phone and it's no longer doing it. It was driving me nuts when it happened because it was to the point that I couldn't take a pic. All better now though. Hard reset, try camera a few times and good luck.

Samsung impression alarm clock only works sometimes


I currently have the same problem. I also notice that when this happens, my phone has a hard time sending texts and viewing pictures. Not sure of a permanent fix, but it seems to happen if my phone hasn't been rebooted in over a week. Once I reboot, everything works fine again. I came to the conclusion that like any regular computer that hasn't been rebooted in a while, it will act up in strange ways. My best workaround idea until I get it resolved with AT&T would be to set a reminder once a week or so to reboot your phone (and keep your fingers crossed that it will remind you to reboot).

Nothing happens on my dash


First make sure your phone is fully charged. Then check...
It may be the storage card - if you take the storage card out it will boot up and you can put it back in. - pain in the a## but it may work. Or Try taking the SIM card out, boot it up, turn it off, replace the card, and turn it on again.
Last resort is a hard reboot. If you did a hard reboot and nothing happened then you did not do it successfully. To do a hard reboot.

- with the phone powered off
- press the two soft keys, yes the left and right soft keys which are the two dash keys labeled - -
- while keeping it pressed, press the power button down
- keep the power button pressed down for 1 - 2 seconds and then release the power button while still holding down the two soft keys. Keep holding down the soft keys until a black screen appears and prompts appear
- now release the soft keys and follow prompts
- if you dont see the black screen with the reset option, pull the battery out, reinsert it and repeat the above steps
- when you see the black screen with the reset option, press the Send button to confirm the reset.
