    Please get the firmware re-installed as it has become a SW problem. The phone HW seems to be fine as it has booted and the screen is displaying whatever the firmware is asking it to. With the firmware reinstalled the phone would work as per the (factory) settings. You would have to reconfigure it to your way of working.



    Thanks for this, how do I get the firmware re-installed? and what do you mean by SW problem,and HW , :-}

    SW if software while HW is hardware.
    The problem with these Chinese phones is that only the dealer would know how to reinstall the firmware. Or you can ask the dealer if there is a service center close by. They can do it real fast and reliably well. So, please pay them a visit.

user manual above, above that a forum,
OK I have searched the 'net for an answer, this is a common problem, it seems sometimes the doing of what you did, "Bricks" the phone, IE: makes it useless. There doesn't seem to be a "Fix" as such? If you can, do another hard reset and a soft one too, and see if that helps, but I fear you may have ruined your Phone. Also have you taken out the battery and done all those things?

My zte model z813 is locked. I forgot unlock pattern and it doesnt give me any recovery options


You can try hard resting your phone

1. Power off your device
2. Hold the recovery buttons
Volume Up + Home + Power
Volume Down + Power
Home + Power
If none of the above work, do a web search for your phone’s model plus “recovery mode”.

3. Use volume keys to navigate and home button to select
4. Select factory reset from the menu and then select yes
5. Everything will be set to factory settings

Samsung galaxy ace duos S6802 incoming call always busy. I try to hard reset nothing happens. Call forwarding are disabled. Please help me to fix.it


When a Samsung cell phone becomes unresponsive or when the device slows to a crawl, a reset may be in order. There are two primary methods used to reset the phone. Users should always start with the soft reset when the phone locks up or programs slow down due to memory or software response issues. A soft reset is akin to a reboot of the machine and usually solves most problems without any loss of user data. A hard, or master, reset is required when the phone completely locks up and becomes unresponsive to any cellular signals. This second and more drastic reset deletes all personal data, preferences and settings so that the device is restored to the original factory configuration.
Perform a Soft Reset
Step 1 Press and hold the power button for 10 to 20 seconds.
Step 2 Release the power button and tap the "Power Off" option under the "Device Options" menu that appears. Tap "OK" to initiate the shutdown.
Step 3 Press the power button again to restart the device.
Perform a Hard (Master) Reset
Step 1 Tap the "Menu" key from the home screen and then tap "Settings."
Step 2 Go to "Privacy" and tap "Factory Data Reset" to review the Factory Data Reset information.
Step 3 Review the Factory Reset options. Place a check next to "Format USB Storage" to clear your device of user data, such as music, pictures and other account settings.
Step 4 Review the disclaimer and verify your changes before tapping "Reset phone."
Step 5 Tap the "Erase Everything" or "Yes" buttons to confirm the reset the phone to factory settings. The device initiates the restoration process to the original factory configuration.
Perform an Alternative Soft Reset
Step 1 Power off the phone. If the phone does not turn off, remove the back cover of the phone and take out the battery. Wait between 10 and 30 seconds and then replace both the battery and the cover to restart the device.
Step 2 Simultaneously hold down the power/lock keys.
Step 3 Release the keys when the Android screen appears.
Tips
  • The ATT Samsung SII models have an alternative hard reset that requires you to simultaneously hold down the "Volume Down" and power keys after an alternative soft reset, and then release the power button, bringing up the menu titled "Fastbook, Recovery, Clear Storage, and Simlock." Use the "Volume Down" key to navigate to "Clear Storage" and then press the power button. Press" Volume Up" for "Yes" and "Volume Down" for "No." This will reset your device to its original factory setting.
  • A soft reset on a Galaxy S phone involves pressing the "Volume Up" key simultaneously with the power button.
  • Some older Samsung models have a reset button located behind the battery cover. Press the reset button using a small, blunt object.

Warnings
  • A factory data reset removes all user data and settings associated with the current account. Make a backup of all data on your device before starting a hard reset.

How do I hard reset my virison lg vs920 modle phone


Follow the following steps:

  1. Turn the Power Off.
  2. Touch and hold the following keys at the same time for 8-12 seconds: Power/Lock Key + The Volume Down Key.
  3. Press the Power/Lock Key when you see the pop-up "Permanently Erase User Data & Reset Settings?". Press the Power/Lock key to confirm, or touch any Up and Down key to cancel.
  4. When you press the Power/Lock key to confirm, another pop-up stating "Are you sure you want to continue with erase?" will show up. Press the Power/Lock key to confirm or touch any up or down key to cancel.
  5. After pressing the Power/Lock key, your phone will be restored to factory settings.
Please remember that when you perform factory reset, then all your user applications and user data will be deleted.


Please make sure you back up any important data before a factory reset. I recommend Titanium Backup (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup&hl=en). However, your phone should be rooted.

The picture attached should show you the buttons highlighted in green.
8_17_2012_12_15_55_am.png

However, if your phone is still in working condition, then you can follow the following steps:

  1. From the Home screen, touch the Menu Key.
  2. Touch Settings > Privacy > Factory Data Reset.
  3. Note: Touch the check box to erase all contents from your microSD card when the phone is reset.
  4. Read warning and touch "Reset Phone".
Hope that helped.

Cheers,

Hard or master reset


A hard reset restores the original factory settings and may erase all downloaded content, including ringtones, images, programs, and contacts stored in the internal memory. To perform a hard reset, follow these steps:


  1. Back up all necessary data by copying any files you want to save from your phone to your computer.
  2. From the Start screen, swipe left.
  3. Tap Settings.
  4. Tap about.
  5. Tap reset your phone.
  6. Tap yes.


Hard or master reset using hardware buttons


If the phone is locked, frozen, or unresponsive, you can hard reset it using the hardware keys instead of the menu. A hard reset restores the original factory settings and may erase all downloaded content, including ringtones, images, programs, and contacts stored in the internal memory. To perform a hard reset using hardware keys, follow these steps:


  1. Back up all necessary data by copying any files you want to save from your phone to your computer.
  2. With the phone turned off, press and hold the Volume Up and Volume Down keys.
  3. While still pressing the Volume keys, quickly press the Power/Lock key.
  4. When the device displays 'This operation will delete all your personal data, and reset all settings to manufacturer default. Press Vol Down to restore manufacturer default, or press other keys to cancel.', release the Volume keys.
  5. Press the Volume Down key to reset the device.
