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.
You could try this, but don't hold much hope:
Press * 3 send at the same time and turn the phone on. Keep them pressed until the reset screen appears.
Give it time to reset.
Yes! I know, you need someone to press the ON button.
Or try:
Hard reset code *#7780#

How to format nokia 3110c phone memory


try giving restore factory settings ..

if problem persists then you have upgrade the firmware ...

you can upgrade firmware if you just have the normal data cable..
first you need to download the nokia software updater from the nokia site given below is the site:

http://europe.nokia.com/A4579163

after downloading just run the program and then it will guide you to upgrade the firmware
you need to have the internet connection and remember one more thing you must not remove the battery or turn off the phone or pc while the updation process is going on, if you do so it will permanently damage your cell phone ..
first backup all your data and then proceed to upgrade the firmware ..


OR:
formatting is best for ur mobile momery card
bcoz when you delete something that is not erased thoroughly.
it can be experienced by using tuneup utilities in computers.
so formatting is necessary, so use these steps
*#7370# for reset settings
*#7780# for soft formatting
if you want complete format turn off phone,charge fully. then press green button, * button, no. 3 button, lastly I/O(power)button simultaneously.
your phone will be formatted in 3 mins approx.
Enter Default lock code is 12345.

My n95 lights up with grey screen and wont do anything at all not even switch off.


Try to format your phone. How ever formating your phone will erase all your data in phone memory. Your memory card data will not be affected though.
Use these steps to format:
1. Make sure you have at least 3/4 charge of battery power left.

2. Switch-off your phone.

3. Press and hold these 3 keys; Green dial key, * (star key) and no. 3 key and then press the power on/off to switch on the phone.

Remember, do not let go all of the keys, hold until you see a formatting word screen show!

4. After a few minutes when the full phone formatting completed, your phone will be back to original system and factory setttings.

If this doesnt solve the problem, it means your firmware (operating system) is damaged.
The solution to this is to take it to a service center and they will flash it for you.
Phone flashing will erase all data in your phone memory as new firmware is installed into the phone

it may have been caused due to an operating system bug, which could be resolved by upgrading your firmware to the latest which is v21. nokia recommends having ur firmware at the most updated version as they release alot of bug fixes with each firmware upgrade.
