    Ihave the same problem with az1anb0ya. In the middle of the update my n73 turnoff and my laptop's screen keep on flashing that the usb where my phone's cable is connected is not recognized and malfunctioned. I was bothered and did the computer suggestion and that is to take off the battery and its attached charger but still my n73 is no power when i put back the battery and its charger.

There's nothing you can do to your phone. A repair shop might be able to re-program it. But it wont be cheap. Read below for future reference.
WARNING
When updating software on Mobs, be sure to:
HAVE A FULLY CHARGED BATTERY INSERTED;
PUT IT ON GENERAL PROFILE;
TURN OFF YOUR PIN NUMBER;
CONNECT YOUR CHARGER TO YOUR MOB AND SWITCH IT ON;
DO NOT ----- DO NOT ---- TOUCH YOUR PHONE WHILE THE UPDATE IS GOING ON;
THIS CAN TAKE 30 MINUTES OR MORE.
And obviously don't unplug the phone from the PC.
Be patient, you may have to do a restart or two on your mob afterwards. Even remove the battery to get it going again (not recommended). But give it plenty of time.
--------------------------------------
It is also wise not to use your PC while updating software, just in case the PC freezes.
If the PC freezes during an update, you're up the creek without a paddle...

I did an update on a Sony Eric 810i it took nearly two hours.
--------------------------------------
More... Your phone turns itself on and off, sometimes more than once while updating software, you should leave it well alone during the update.

Before updating software you should check that there's a newer version of software.

I am updating my N73 mobile software, but after updating .cellphone is not on.


I am sure your handset does not completed is updating during installation from net. Reason network or data cable connection disconnected from computer. Same problem was happened with my Nokia N73. If i am not wrong then when you press your power button, nothing is happened. Its look like a dead body. Don't worry just visit Nokia service center and tell them you want to install the update version & hand over the phone. You can't install the software from home, because your hand set complete dead. Its takes 2-3 hours for installing. But as per there work load may be its take 2 - 3 days for service center people.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

My N73 is off


when the software updating process is happening the PC must not be turned off.. if this happens then there is a possibility of the phone software getting corrupt.
think that has happened to your mobile also.. take it to nokia priority show room and reinstall the phone software.

Hello,help me,please.I was updating my n73 Music Edition via Nokia Software Updater,when my PC stopped working.Then,I held my mobile,but I found it turned off by itself.I need your help,please


It won't turn back on huh lindsey? The same thing happened to my n73 while I was updating it. During the update process, it's formatting the entire phone operating software and replacing it with a new one. If the process is interrupted when it hasn't completed yet, it won't turn on anymore. What I did was get my phone reformatted by a technician I knew in the mall. This was in Philippines, so you should ask around where you can get your phone reprogrammed. Let me know how it goes.
