Question about Nokia N95 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Won't Turn On

I've had a lot of trouble with my N95's power button; had it fixed several times. But that might not be the problem. Typically what happens is that I'll get an incoming call, and try to answer it, but maybe touch the wrong button and the phone locks. Can't answer the call, call get it to hang up. It just freezes. Finally have to take the battery out of the back to get it to turn off, and then it won't turn back on. Is there a reset button or procedure I should try? If not, can anyone recommend a place to get it fixed? Nokia U.S. won't have anything to do with it because they say it was originally sold outside the U.S.

    Can't get to these steps because I can't power on the phone. Can't power it off either. It's just dead. Repair technician worked on the on/off switch for quite awhile, and claims that is not the problem. So I have an issue with a phone that is off, and I am unable to power it back on.

My HTC one takes longer than usual to charge how can I fix this and also when I turn my phone off a lot of the time it dosent turn back on normally I have to press the power button several times and then...

There are faults with your product battery - It may have been left on too long and over charged several times - battery change is the answer I think. J

Cant send sms. states memory full. close some applications and try again. nothing is open on phone!

N95 Memory Full Problem can not be resolve by simply restarting or by changing the network setting. You must "Manual Reset" it. Just Turn Off the Phone, Press the *, Call Button, Three and ask another Person to turn on your N95 by pressing the power button. Stay pressing the Three Buttons until the phone fully boot up and ask you to enter Date and Time. After that, youre phone will go back to Factory Setting.

Try the following manual method to hard reset/format Nokia N95:

1) Turn off the mobile device.
2) Turn on the phone and quickly Press and Hold the following three buttons: the green Call Answer button, the “*” button, and the number “3′ button. keep holding the keys untill the mobile phone restarts and prompts you to enter details time and country.

Warning: Make sure the battery is at least 25% capacity so the phone will not power down during hard reset. ( Hard reset normally takes about 2 minutes only).

Warning: Hard reset will format everythings in your phone ( Your contact, calender, photos, installed Apps, Etc.) and the phone will be returned to its original state as if it was purchaced new.

( Mini memory card MMC) will not be effected :)

I turn on my n95 and it vibrates the keypad lights up but it will go no further and can only be turned off by removing the battery

My N95 does this too. I have a fix that will turn the phone on properly.
1st take out battery,
2nd press and hold power button,
3rd insert battery while still holding power button,
4th release power button as soon as your phone vibrates.
That works for me.

Nokia N95 8GB

This function is not supported by the N95.
There could be several reasons for this:
Not all people like it, people want to answer calls while having the slider closed, e.g because they use a headset.
Also there are several slider positions, and due to multitasking, using several applications at the same time/while calling, it could
Or to prevent ending the call by closing the slider accidentally...
I don't know the exact reasoning behind it.

Anyway, unfortunately this is not possible and the chance that this functionality will be added in the future is small.
Sorry, you'll have to use the end button.
