Phone shuts itself off

When I push the center menu button or when dialing out my phone will automatically shut itself off. Then, when I try to turn it back on it takes it a few minutes before I can get it to work. I can answer IF it stays on buy can't dial out now. The phone is only 2 mos. old.

Re: Phone shuts itself off

I had a similar problem, and replacing the battery fixed it for me. I got a new one on eBay for less than a dollar, and didn't have to send the phone in for service.

Since then, the phone has not shut itself off again as it often had in the past.

Nokia6263when i switch it on it shows a white screen and aflickering screen it shuts itself down icant dial or see the numbers besides this it just do things with out a command

There are only three possible cause of the problem:

1. Defective LCD

2. Defective battery or components - if the battery is defective or if there are some faulty components inside, the phone is not getting the right amount of power that it should get. So the phone usually shuts off.

3. Corrupted firmware - once you have a corrupted firmware, the phone might not either work correctly when opening some applications, or it would automatically shut off.

You need to bring the phone to the Nokia Care Center near you. If the phone is under the warranty period, you will not pay even a single cent. However, if it's out of the warranty, the charge is low.

Thank you and good luck!

Try replacing the battery. Also check to make sure that the battery itself is secure and can't move within the phone casing.

If it's the SGH-D900i phone that you have... Go to Menu... Settings.... Phone settings... Slide Settings... in there you have to change the "Down" from 'Continue operation' to 'stop operation'... save and slide the phone shut, that should once again lock the keypad.

Yes that's possible with every phone just go on settings, security phone settings on automatic key-gard(keyboard) and turn it off. But before you need to know the code for locking and unlocking like in all nokia is green button and *.Not sure for samsung.
Good luck!
