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

You should try to install NOKIA SOFTWARE UPDATE to ur phone to install the new firmware .It is just software problem not any big to worry.You can go to any nokia center to reinstall the firmware and got ur phone A1.

Keeps playing first few seconds of music files

Start by taking the battery out and reinstalling it.

If this doesn't work, and the keyboard is still responding, use the "soft reset" code - *#7370# - you will need to enter the phonecode (12345 if you have never changed it).

If that doesn't work, then use the "hard reset" code *#7870# - but be aware that this will delete all data that's stored in the phone memory - the contents of the memory card are not affected, however.

Finally, there is the phone reformat, which will also erase all the settings and data on your phone - to do this, remove the battery, reinstall it and hold down the "*", "3" and "Answer (green phone)" buttons and while holding them down press the power button. Hold the keys down until the phone starts asking the startup questions again. Having 3 hands helps for this proceedure.

If this doesn't help, then the last thing to try is to reinstall the phone firmware using the Nokia software update service -

If it still doesn't work after that, then about the only option is to take it to a Nokia service centre and get them to fix it, since it sounds like a hardware problem.

How to reset my factory setting in my n95 phone? i forgot my pwd.

Be warned: backup any important data before attempting this with your phone

Press Call(green button) + 3 + * simultaneously during the bootup(startup) phase untill you see the first screen , forces the N95 to do a complete wipe of internal memory.
This will reset the phone back to 100% standard factory configuration.
