Your phone is bricked....bring it back to where you got it and ask for exchange/replacement....before the warranty expired.

During update nokia 6300 my phone ruined out off battery so the install was not complete and my phone wont start on help me


Your best bet is to bring it to an authorized service center as the phone's internal memory might have been 'bricked' as it was being written to during the update which was interrupted and thus causing your phone not to work anymore.

Phone does not turn on


If I am understanding this correctly...
The phone was interrupted during the install/update process of its firnware on to the phone.
This is a serious problem with the phone. Disurpting it like you had done has caused the install to fail. There is no way to fix this problem. You pretty much bricked your phone. Your going to have to take it back to the store or get it replaced. 
This happens a lot when users upgrade their blackberrys but they must NOT have anything go wrong with the process. If so, there is nothing that can fix the phone because there is no OS or anything workable on the phone.

N73 start up problem


Your phone needs to be reprogrammed, only a repair shop can do this for you.

You need to download the latest Nokia PC Suite to do an update on your phone.
Before updating software you should check that there’s a newer version of software available.

WARNING
When updating software on Mobs, be sure to:
HAVE A FULLY CHARGED BATTERY INSERTED;
PUT IT ON GENERAL PROFILE;
TURN OFF YOUR PIN NUMBER;
CONNECT YOUR CHARGER TO YOUR MOB AND SWITCH IT ON;
DO NOT ----- DO NOT ---- TOUCH YOUR PHONE WHILE THE UPDATE IS GOING ON;
THIS CAN TAKE 30 MINUTES OR MORE.
And obviously don’t unplug the phone from the PC.
Be patient, you may have to do a restart or two on your mob afterwards. Even remove the battery to get it going again (not recommended). But give it plenty of time.
It is also wise not to use your PC while updating software, just in case the PC freezes.
If the PC freezes during an update, you’re up the creek without a paddle...

I did an update on a Sony Eric 810i it took nearly two hours.
More... Your phone turns itself on and off, sometimes more than once while updating software, you should leave it well alone during the update.

Stuck on nokia start up screen


Try this:
Take your SIM card out.
Make sure your phone battery is fully charged.
Press * 3 send at the same time and turn the phone on. Keep them pressed until the reset screen appears.
Give it time to reset.
Yes! I know. You need someone to press the ON button.

Tip! Only use one Anti Virus Application on your phone.

If the above doesn't work try another update. (it may have mis-updated).
