If you ever tried debranding the phone youself and made a pigs ear of it, and your phone says " phone start up failed, contact the retailer" below is a way of reformatting the phone back to the original factory settings.

1 power the phone off, 
2 press and keep down the keeys green/talk + '3' + '*', - power on the phone at the same time
3 release the keys when the formatting starts.

I have a nokia e52..which on being switched on displays a msg phone startup failed. contact the retailer.. what should i do... thank u...

This means that your Phone has an error in the software and might need a re-installation. Remove the battery for about 30 minutes, remove the memory card , now set in the battery and switch ON. If the same fault occurs you might need the help of a Nokia support centre for re-installation.
