Question about Nokia N73 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

N73 hangs frequently

5 months after purchasing a N73 normal (not a ME or IE edition), vry often it just hangs for 5 to 10 secs, while doing any activity. Mainly at the time of accessing anything like Music, calendar, messages, contacts, while browsing the pics in gallery, etc. Anything.....

Whn the problem started the phone also used to switch off 2 / 3 times a day. Dont knw how bt, that stopped aftr 2 weeks.

I hv a 512 memory provided with the set, use no games, hv more thn 70 songs, few clips, more thn 100 photos, 2/3 themes, etc. An average 100 mb free at all times.

Mean I am a average user bt, cant understand why the phone hangs with such basic structure. Its vry annoying sometimes.

I dont think it is bcoz of space constraints, as u can see my usage. Dnt know whether it is bcoz of OS or Firmware upgrade or anything as such ???

It is the sexiest cell for an average person in that budget.

Well I m a fan of this phone & do not want to degrade it. I dont think format shud b the solution & also not sure if formatting will really help & that too how many times !!

Solution 2 the ‘hang & switch off event’ alwys welcome.

My nokia N73 phone is always hanging in every 5 minutes what to do?

Please remove the memory card, restart the phone and see if this fix or not. If it does, then there's problem with the memory card, perhaps it's been infected with virus. You better scan it using an updated antivirus or format it. If you still have the problem do let me know. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Brother something must be wrong with some parts of the internal hardware. If it has a warranty you may bring it back to where you bought it and have it replaced. I've been owning an n73 for a year now, but experienced a few bugs with it. Complain that they sold you a substandard good and demand a replacement.

N73 Hanging Problem

If the bottom of your N73 is getting hot soon, it means that your Power IC catchs more Voltage than it nees so, the problem comes from your Power IC, and you have to change it! 
You can't do that on your own, coz you need an special heater in order to lock off the power IC and change it. Just bring it to an EXPERT technician!!! 
Another problem which will occure after this problem is that your charging IC would be deactivated and you have to change it too!!
Again, take care about microphone IC as it is similar and near to your Power IC!! This would disable your hands-free and microphone!
