My N73 Hangs-up After Connecting to My PC

My N73 hangs-up after i transfer my video files to my PC. I guess my N73 unit is infected by a virus. I found out that after I scan my computer units there were viruses found.

I want to format my N73 unit but dont know what is the Operating System to be used for N73.

Does anybody know how to format/fix my N73?

That code *#7370# is indeed great amy but i guess one even better solution is to have your unit's software upgraded. we have the same unit model. mine is an n73 music edition original. i havent upgraded my unit yet.

I have your solution - there is only one symbian virus and it basically sms's everyone on your contact list to spread. N73 comes with free trial F secure software. Just download and install and clean.works for 30 days. Otherwise do full format but you will loose everything. if you backup you will save the virus.Format mem card too.

Amy you don't have to upgrade your OS.

My n73 had all kinds of problems like being really slow or unable to open some programs, screen freezes, and stuff like that. This usually means that the phone memory is full of junk that can't be removed and/or viruses. To completely rid yourself of that problem, try hard formatting the n73.

To format

  1. turn phone off.
  2. hold the following keys WHILE its turning back on: (3 + * + green call key)
  3. do not let go until it asks you about your location
Your phone will gain 44mb back and go back to normal. Phone will respond a lot faster too, as if it were new. Viruses would be deleted as well as other junk stuffed inside.

Important reminder:

If you have anything stored on the phone memory that you woudn't want to delete, such as pictures, videos, or whatever, back it up to your memory card or computer. The format process deletes all stored memory on the phone, but not the memory card.

My N73 radio not working..plz help


Possible that the phone has hung up because there are errors in the software. So to reset remove the battery and the memory card from the phone. Using your PC , scan the memory card for any corrupt files or media files with virus- it is possible when they are downloaded from unsafe sites. If so remove or format the card. Now replace the card and battery and switch on the phone. If the phone hangs up then it is confirmed that the software is corrupt and will need a reinstallation. Seeking help from the authorized service /support centre is most ideal. Take estimate and decide.

Laptop hangs during anti-virus scan


which anti-virus do you use?
If it's McAfee, then it's quite usual. Leave it there for some time or skip the file.
I would recommend you to use Norton 360
