Why my n96 turns itself on and off

Hello bonganimutee,

if it's turning off because it's lacking battery power even after a full recharge, then you have a hardware problem that you need to get checked by a nokia care pint, it might be the battery, the charger or even the phone itself.
if on the hand battery power is ok, but the phone still turns off, then it might be a software problem. try to update/reinstall the firmware by downloading and installing nokia software updater from here:
"remeber to backup your phone contents using ovi suite"
another way to update the firmware os OTA, instructions are here:

if you feel that you can't carry any of the above procedures, please leave this to your nokia care point to do, you can find the nearest one to you through here:

i hope that will solve your problem

Hello my name is Danielle and my nokia n96 will not turn over after I did an update that was not completed because it showed an error. What can I do? Thanks

Your phone is dead but you can fix it by taking it to a cellphone repair center. They can flash your cellphone so that the firmware will be fixed. Updating your firmware is simple as long as you have sufficient battery because when the update has been interrupted, it will result to what happened to your phone. Also make sure that the usb cable will not be moved..

Hi! My screen is white when turn on the phone. When I removed sim and memory card and turn on again, I see fabric black/gray background but can not see menu or any other commands.. Thanks in advance..

It seems to be a corrupted firmware. Nokia allows you to update the firmware over the net. How???
Fully charge the battery, backup the data on the phone, Connect the phone to the PC through a USB cable only. Start Nokia PCSuite and allow a few seconds for the suite to connect to the phone. It will display on the suite that Nokia 6300 is connected. Click on update firmware and follow instructions. When suite finishes, your phone would be as good as new. Restore the data to the phone.

N96 keeps crashing, shortcuts missing, messaging already in use

Its been a year so there must be definatel a newer firmware version available for your phone. Just get the Nokia Update Manager software in your computer and try updating the phone. Should solve all your problems and just make sure that you take a back up of your data because after an update you will loose all your phone memmory data. Mass Memory stays unaffected.
