I was just reading about a similar problem the other day. Make sure you don't have any of the buttons locked down in the pressed position.
Specifically, they were talking about the gallery review button, next to the camera shutter button on the right side of the phone, the one with the little PLAY arrow and the checkerboard pattern on it.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. goodluck!

4)You phnoe should say, formatting and all your data would be reset to factory orginal
CAUTION: You will loose all the data and contacts stored in phone memory, But this is the only way
Hey, Matthew here, First thing you should have done is to take out the battary. Leave the phone to dry for 2-3 days. If this still does not work you can get some "dipping alcohol". Still with out the battery dip it into it for about 15-20seconds and leave to dry for about a day- this should work if you took out the bat but might still work even if you didn't. Hope this helps. Matt. PS you can get the alcohol in a harware store or the likes:) Please rate me
try this : This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .
it sounds crazy .
Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY .
Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.
Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.
It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).
beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.
This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick. related link is here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-Otjgd48nY
do not consult a technicition i have had this problem and solved it for my friend, you were trying to update your n95 firmware using nokia software updater then it said please unplug and remove battery you should never touch a mobile during an update... anyway to fix it your n95 thinks its still in a middle of the update so charge your phone for 10 minutes (DONT TURN ON) then connect up to the computer via usb to your n95 then open up software updater and press start update it it says could not find deivce keep retrying it took me 20 minutes but could last up to 1 hour then it willl recognise the phone and continue update and turn itself back on only problem is that your phone will be reset but you still keep your memory card data
post back asap dale goodwin
