Question about Nokia 6267 Black GSM Mobile Phone
I am sure that you are very annoyed with some solutions, but since we experts cannot see each other's answers, sometimes we used to repeat the same answer when there's confusion. Well, I've read this thread from the beginning to the end. In one way, you are lucky, and in other way, you are unlucky. You were very lucky that you could backup the contents of your phone. I myself have tried the same method on other models as well without success. In most cases, it's related to hardware, not the software neither firmware. The actual formatting/resetting code is *#7780# as you said, no other techniques will work with this mode. But as you've mentioned it crashes before completing the process, I assume there's software issue as well. But it's less likely. It's possible the phone just restarts itself ignoring the process instead of crashing while restoring. I hope you understand.
You have three options, first: formatting the phone memory, second : Update/Flashing the mobile and third: Checking the hardwares and pcb (circuit board).
To format, since the code *#7780# didn't work, you have to do it with a flashing software otherwise it wont be possible. There is no other method to format this model's phone memory than through a flashing software. But the problem is that you'll need to visit a Nokia Care or a local mobile repair shop to get this done.
Updating the firmware will be helpful, but since it keeps restarting itself, I am afraid this will work either. Updating a phone's firmware takes a lot of time and the phone should be On during the process. But you can do it with a flashing software. One thing is that updating and flashing will cost you more or less similar, so it's recommended to flash than updating. Both are done at Nokia Service Centers and Mobile repair shops.
If after doing all of the above methods and the problem still persists, then the issue must be with the PCB (Printed Circuit Board). For your information, Nokia mobile PCB has 5 stacks of circuit layers. It's hard to repair and difficult to diagnose. Only experts can do that. This is the most expensive methods and no one can assure that this will definitely fix if there's not a minor issue but a big issue like broken circuit track/s etc..
Now, the decision is your's, and I know that you do not want to hear what I've said above and you may not expect such answers, but please understand that there are conditions.. What I mean is, buying a new phone costs much more lesser than repairing a used and problematic phone. If you really want to repair it, go ahead with what I've said but I can't guarantee that you'll definitely be able to get it fixed. Since you've done whatever is possible from your end, I don't see any possibility from your end.
Don't take it otherwise, but I am only sharing my ideas with my experiences and expertise. If you wish to ignore my suggestions, I won't mind. Let me know if you need more info.
Thanks for using FixYa.

The phone does not complete startup.
There are 4 possibilities.
1) The phone does not complete start up completely because of a defective battery.
2) The phone does not boot up because of corrupted firmware.
3) The phone does not boot because of a defective main board.
4) The phone does not complete boot because one of the device checked in boot (initial) test is defective. (memory card, keyboard etc.)
Here what you can do.
1) Go to a phone shop and test a new battery.
2) That is fixed doing the hard reset which will reset phone firmware and software to factory. You have done it already I read.
3) Data recovery will be very expensive and can only be done accessing memory chip in a difficult and expensive way.Must be done by a technician.
4) The phone must be disassembled and started with card reader, LCD, and key pad disconnected. Parts such as the charger connector and antenna wiring must be tested for shorts.
This phone is quite basic and does not have built in OS. I think there is not much more you can do. If the phone does not start reset to factory settings and test battery. The rest involve disassembling, and even in that case it will be difficult to recover data.
Reset can sometimes fix it, but it will delete data. There is no way out of it. Data recovery for phones in this conditions is charged several hundred dollars.
Reset can be done in different ways.
1)Restart and PRESS and HOLD the "Call Button" + " 3 " + " * "
2) If phone starts enter *#7370# - non applicable in your case.
Here reset more in detail: Nokia Support Discussions.
If that does not work the phone it is not worth repairing.

Yes it seems the phone has hung up because there are errors in the software. Hence to confirm if this is a hardware or software issue we need to first try a full reset.Hence remove the battery and the memory card from the phone. Using your PC , scan the memory card for any corrupt files or media files with virus- it is possible when they are downloaded from unsafe sites. If so remove all files to a folder into your PC and then format the card. Now replace the card and battery and switch on the phone.- you can also try without the card or with another card to confirm. If the phone boots up but with a low display then it is possible that there are errors in the hardware and will need assistance from a Nokia center. Also if the software is corrupt it can be confirmed by a code test at the center and will need a reinstallation. Seeking help from the authorized service /support centre is most ideal. Take estimate and decide

the problem is as a result of software corruption. Your phone operating system is corrupt for one reason or the other. The phone operating system might have gotten virus through bluetooth transfer, internet browsing or via the memory card.
Perform the reset because that's the solution to your problem. There is also every tendency that the restore might solve the problem, but try it first. But the reset doesn't solve the problem, read further. Have it at the back of your mind that your phone operating system is corrupt (virus).
To solve the problem, you need to flash the phone. Flashing the phone means reinstalling the phones operating system software files. The phone will be fully formatted and a fresh operating system files will be reinstalled.
I don't think you will be able to flash this pone yourself because of the tools involved. You will be needing the phone's flashing cable, flashing software and a computer.
Phone experts are the ones that have this software and cable for various phones.
Therefore, I would suggest you give your phone to a phone tech to help you fix this problem. The phone tech will help you flash the phone and your phone will be perfect again.
I am recommending you to a phone tech because this is not what you can do yourself.
I hope you understand this.

Hi, when a phone it is continuously rebooting, it means that memory has been affected by VIRUS.
VIRUS can damage a phone in no time. VIRUS can be caused by downloading applications on your phone through the internet, or might be from data transfer from a phone to another phone.
To remove the VIRUS, you will need to flash the phone memory. Flashing the phone will restore back the phone to it normal state.
You can use this link to see how to flash your phone
Flashing a cell phone will erase carrier data from the memory. Cellular companies can usually do this for a fee. Online buyer sites sell the software kit that will flash a cell phone from home computers.
To flash a phone you will need to rewrite the PRL file by connecting your phone to a computer with the needed equipment. Your best bet is to take your phone to a dealer that flashes phones on a regular basis. For more information
After flashing the cell phone, make sure you format the micro SD card before insert into the cell phone.
