Nokia 6233 restarts

My nokia 6233 starts only for 10 secs.
Ok, this happened once again when I was changing a theme, it simply blocked and turned off. After that I kept turning it on and on but it was bugged : like it looks ok, then the screen becomes white with lines and then it turns off. I fixed it by taking out the memory card and putting it back again

But now the same thing happened probably because I turned off my phone by removing the battery instead of turning it off with the button. I mean come on, how sensitive is this fucking phone!? Isn't there a way I can reset it or something. The trick with the memory card doesn't work anymore. This phone is so buggy.
note that i have tried this *#7780# but doesnt worked but i m able to see my imei

Re: nokia 6233 restarts

Sorry, i dont have a solution either but am searching the net for one since my 6233 did eaxactly the same last ight on christmas when i hot swapped the micro sd card. it boots into a white screen with just the battery indicator, then either does nothing or just swithes off. If im lucky ill ge the signal inidicator and time displayed but for only a second or so before reverting back to the white screen or switching off. Ive tried the *#7780# but displays result unknown. Ive tried the firmware version display code but that shows nothing also. Also nothing on the IMEI code.

Ive also tried the other methods described above of taking the abttery out and sim out and micro sd out and the combinations of that but still nothing.
Any other suggestions?

Re: nokia 6233 restarts

Have you tried starting up the phone with out your sim and/or memory card? Try using the memory card in a computer (you can get usb adapters).

Re: nokia 6233 restarts

If your phone Built with Symbian operating system. Use *#7370# to Format the phone memory. if your phone could not even Boot up. Use 3 key trick Hard formating technique. before switching on your phone. Hold 3 & * & green dial button & on/off button simultaneously. Just make it a try. if fails Contact authorised service centre.

I have a problem with switching my nokia 3110 classic answer pls!

The Problem with Nokia 3110c – Switching off and automatically restarting This is what happens. Nokia 3110 hangs, gets switched off and restarts randomly. More often, it restarts around 3 times or so and then gets switched off.
Possible Causes and Solutions Cause 1 – Phone Memory Full – Nokia 3110c mobile phone has got 9MB of internal memory.
Solution – Keep the free space between 350 to 500 KB, so as to keep things running smoothly on your phone and prevent Nokia 3110c from restarting.
Cause 2 – Changing Themes – Some people have reported that the phone restarts automatically when they try changing display themes on the phone.
Solution – Don’t get your phone loaded with too many themes downloaded from the internet or atleast, don’t switch themes frequently. These themes, mind you, also load up things into your already falling Nokia 3110c phone memory.
Cause 3 – Memory Cards – Some people have reported that Nokia 3110c restarts due to some issues with the memory card.
Solution – Remove the card, get it formatted and then insert it back and then restore factory settings. This just might solve the issue.
Cause 4 – Transferring data via Blueooth / USB data cable (or) Updating Music Library – A few people have reported that their Nokia 3110c mobile phone restarts when updating the music library.
Solution – Don’t try updating of music library frequently or don’t often transfer data in/out of your Nokia 3110c phone.
Cause 5 – MP3 files
Solution – This may seem dumb, but consider converting all your MP3 music files to WMA and then store them on the memory card. Some users suggested this.

Also try this:-----
It ll work . you dont need to go 4 the firmware v5.05
If ur phone restarted 3 or 4 times and switched off automatically. Try this
1] Remove the battery and Micro SD card
2] wait about 5 minutes
3] Then switch On the phone WITHOUT the memory card

Now ur phone working well without restarting

4] Then you must restore Factory settings frm the Settings Menu
[default security code:12345]
{i know most of people have done this thing,but remember u have 2 go
with the correct order.Unless it will not work.OK}

5] Now apply a theme. The theme's size should be below 100kb

6] Now ur phone working fine without the Micro SD

7] Then wait about 5 minutes and Switch off ur phone

8] Remove the battery and insert the Micro SD
{Don t Format the memory card}

9] Switch On ur Nokia 3110c phone.
10] Now Keep ur free Phone memory space [Not the memory card's free space]
between 470kb - 499kb.

Now surely ur 3110c working fine about 5
months.During these time u can
1] Send/receive any file via bluetooth.
2] Enjoy Music,video, GPRS,Yahoo Go .....etc
3] Also u can Update music library anytime.
but remember below DONTs
1] Don t try to change themes.{u have to stick with a theme}
2] Charge ur phone in ON mode
3] Dont fully discharge the battery
4] Start charging ur phone when there is only a bar on Battery indicator
5] Dont erase calender notes

Make sure about above 5 Donts

Dont worry if ur phone restarted once.{U know the problem is restarting several times
and automatically swiched off.}

After 4 or 5 month there is a possibility to occur the problem again.
if so Follow the above steps again.
Good luck
To be frank, This mobile has this as a generic problem. As I told, The problem can come back again.

Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

there is no wallpaper as such for Nokia 1209, but still some good patterns you can change to under themes in display settings and once you go to themes you can select a theme and edit its wallpapers but only in-built once!

6233 turns on for 10 secs and then turns off

I think you have a screen prob more than anything else
or even software problems.
Unfortunatelly ou will need to have a tech look at it.
OH try a master reset first if you can get it to stay on long enough that is.
