Suddenly my screen has "Test Mode" written across the front and now the phone responds to nothing including my efforts to turn it off. I took the battery out, but when I put it back in - it came back with just "Test Mode" and the phone doesn't respond to any key.
It's an older Nokia Cell Phone from Cellular South - it say BL-6C on the back of the battery..

The test mode display is activated through the test mode command: <b>*3001#12345#</b>.
Once you enter this command, you are given a list of options, including
'Field Test'. Select Field Test and then hit 'Enabled'. You must power
down the phone and power it up again to get out of the test mode menu.
The test mode screens may vary somewhat between different firmware
versions and providers.<br />
Once you power up the phone you are given a new menu choice at location
10 called 'Field Test'. There are several different test mode screens.
Type in a test number to get the screen listed below. Alternatively you
may use the arrow buttons to move between the 199 different field test
screens. Entering test number '0' will disable the test mode, but will
still allow you to access the test menu.<br />
If you are using the field test mode and are unsure what the screens
mean then hold down the # key for about four seconds to get a brief
description of the screen. Repeat holding the # key to return to the
test mode values. <b>Thanks to L. Tee for this tip</b><br />
If you would like to see what is behind the test mode screen then
keyguard the phone, wait until the 'press unlock and then *' screen
disappears, and then press one of the numeric keys to see the regular
screen. <b>Thanks to L. Tee for this tip</b><br />
Note: If you make or receive calls while in test mode, you may not be
able to change the speaker volume. To turn off the field test mode you
can select field test '0' or enter a few digits and then clear these
Actually it sounds like the phone is merely off. Perhaps the battery actually died. If so and then the phone is off. When you plug in the phone with while it is off it will show the logo then it will say please wait and the the battery icon and say charging. If the phone is charged it goes dark.
Just hold down the "end call" key for a minute and see.
This actually happened to me once. I thought my phone was broken. Just as I was about to call AT&T I decided to try turning it off which is done the same way as you turn it on. Imagine my surprise when it started right up!!!
This problem could only be solved by the nokia care centre.
1.This problem is happened due to chip failure, that leads to the displaying of text "test mode".
2.This chip is too small,so only nokia care centre can fix this problem.
Sounds like a faulty hard drive that is locking up the system. Take out the hard drive completely and turn on the computer and see if it goes past the HP screen. If it does then the hard drive is bad. If it still locks up on you then reseat the memory one stick at a time in one slot at a time. If this doesnt work then you might be having motherboard issues.
Try these things and let me know what happens and I'll help you further.
