You have only one option to "Do It Yourself". Remove the sim card and the memory card from your phone, power on the handset. If the same message shows on the screen. There's nothing you can do except to get it flashed from a Local Mobile Repair center or from a Nokia Care. If it's software issue, flashing will definitely fix the issue (flashing = reinstalling the operating system of the mobile).

It could also be related to hardware, so I can't guarantee you that it could be 100% repairable. Some hardware issues could be fixed through jumper tricks, refreshing, etc.. etc.. But if it's related to CPU or Power Supply IC, then it's not worth repairing, what I mean is cpu repair is not done anywhere, I don't even expect it's done at the Manufacturing Site since mobile handsets are not recycled.

You'll know the condition once it's flashed.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My Nokia n72 phone fails to start says contact the retailer.what should i do to fix this and im in ghana and i do not know the retailers number.pls help

This means,your phone software is corrupted due to some instances like full memory,system failure etc. .The only thing you can do is try to hard reset your phone.By doing this,follow this procedure.

Remember that there is no way to retrieve all of your data.because your phone system failed to start up.

Here is the procedure.

1. turn off your phone
2. remove battery
3. remove sim card
4. remove memory card then put the battery again.

5. press * (asterisk) , 3 (three) call button simultaneously then press POWER ON, (continue pressing the three given keys (you can release the power switch now) until the phone open and selecting the country (you can release the three keys now.)

If still on "Phone start up,contact the retailer",just repeat the procedure 3 times.

If does not work? need to reprogram the phone and it will be possible if you bring it to any mobile service shop near your location.

Hoping that this method works...Thank you for visiting Fixya.

Hold down the following three buttons: Green (call answer button, * button, and '3' button.
While holding these buttons, press the power button and switch on the phone.

OR you can do a hard reset by typing *#7370#
