Question about Nokia N70 Cellular Phone

4 Answers

Phone won't switch on

I have an N70 which I use occasionally when I'm travelling, to host a SIM for whichever place I'm at. I've just tried to switch it on for the first time in 3 months, and nothing happened. I put it on the charger, thinking it was just a flat battery, but it showed no sign of charging up, and after several hours, I tried switching on again - still nothing.

I've tried taking the battery, SIM and MMS cards out and switching on while plugged into the charger, in every possible combination - no luck!

Is there any kind of fix for this or should I just accept that I've had good life out of it and get a new handset?!

    Hi Iqbal

    My dad had the same battery in his phone, which I stuck in mine, and it does seem to work. The question now is, can I save myself the money and time of buying a new battery? How do I make a hard flash to the old battery?

    Thanks

Hmmm its sound like your battery got dead-level as it was not in use for last three monts. In that case you can't re-charge your battery.

  • If you can make a hard flash to your battery you can get it back.
  • Or just use anyother working battery.
  • I think its better to test the battery check first before making any other things.

If any question just Ask me.

Good Luck
Iqbal

    Michael,

    They techperson do that easily, or

    if you have any ac/dc adoptor which produce more than 4.5 and less than 6.00 DC volts.

    Then put the +ve node to the +ve node of tha battery and -ve to the negative (extreem left and xetreem right).

    Put this connection only for 10-15 seconds. Beaware if you will leave for more than 20 seconds, your battery may expolite.

    Then you can try, if no success then do the above process again.



    But I will recommend you to take your battery a tech person and tell him about your battery.



    if you are satisfied with my solution please rate my solution as fixya.



    Thanks

N70 is still a good phone, not very different from newer N90.If you leave the battery to drain up completely, and then do not recharge the battery for a long time, the battery will not hold any charge anymore.
If you buy a new battery it should work again.
I suggest going to a shop which sells Nokia and buying a new battery. Before buying the battery ask the retailer to test a full charged battery, they always have a spare battery for testing.
In rare cases, when is not the battery, it may be oxyide on battery socket inside the phone. Most likely solution is changing battery.

Its possible there might be a hardware side fault in the phone - connector - battery assembly.

It might also be a software side corruption, but in that case you should alteast get some image out of the phone.

I would take the phone in to be checked by a professional, as we cant do that over the internet :-)

It can be fixed.

Still can fix it not by you,, in the service center they're going to put cable in your fone, and check your phone if there's no hardware to repair. and if it's all ok and did boot.. the're just going to reflash your fone ... with firmware.. and everything will back to normal... did your power switch bounce? if not that will the problem and they can fix that and less charge...

My nokia n70 is not selecting any other network operators


You can use only a single network operator at a time which is the one active with your SIM card.You can try and search for other networks available at a place but you cannot switch the operator unless you current network supports Network switching.For details regarding Mobile Number Portability you have to contact your customer care and ask them to switch your phone to your desired network without changing the phone number.Hope you are satisfied with my solution.Your valuable feedback would be appreciated.Thanks for choosing Fixya.

SIM card registration failed


You might have filled up the memory to the brim and the phone doesn't have enough to switch on.
Try reformat to original settings. anything you stored on the phone will be lost.

How to reformat your phone, first turn it OFF. Press * 3 send at the same time and keep them pressed while you turn the phone on.
Give it time to work.

Remember, do not let go the 3 keys until you see the formatting screen.
After a few minutes when the process is over, your Nokia N70 will be back to the original delivered system.
