Hi. I'm using nokia c3 mobile phone since my battery was very low i tried charging my mobile by using ten rupees currency note by placing it at the center pin of the battery and tried switching on it...

Dude, It's not because of what you did by the currency note. There might be some other problem.
Try removing the battery and then place it again.

Sony Ericsson K850i not switching on

Try reading K850i Firmware Overview.. There are some issues with firmware. Such as random reboots and BROD (Blue Ring of Death) i was recently victimized by this BROD. 037 firmware is the most stable firmware so far.. i would advise you also to downgrade your firmware first until SE releases a new and more stable firmware..

It keeps switching off by itself


when a phone keeps switching of by it self, there are two thing that will need to be checked:

The battery,
the phone board.

The battery cell might be too weak to power the phone steadily, i will need to be replaced.

The phone board might has lost some memory to cause the phone to switch off.

The phone will need to be flashed to restore the memory lost in the phone.

When flashed the phone can now working properly again.

Take care.

Hi , my phone is not swiching on again. it suddenly got switched off. can you please help me regarding this issue. I went to the near by nokia service center also. they told it was a software problem. but...

There is no such a big problem,actually the battery being used in your phone is not getting perfect cnnection from the point slot..
To avoid this switching of your handset, please clean the slot that receives current from the battery along with the battery points,.. Now provide a small packing of paper folding, so as to maintain connection even if the battery is loose.
With regards

I have a problem with switching my nokia 3110 classic answer pls!

The Problem with Nokia 3110c – Switching off and automatically restarting This is what happens. Nokia 3110 hangs, gets switched off and restarts randomly. More often, it restarts around 3 times or so and then gets switched off.
Possible Causes and Solutions Cause 1 – Phone Memory Full – Nokia 3110c mobile phone has got 9MB of internal memory.
Solution – Keep the free space between 350 to 500 KB, so as to keep things running smoothly on your phone and prevent Nokia 3110c from restarting.
Cause 2 – Changing Themes – Some people have reported that the phone restarts automatically when they try changing display themes on the phone.
Solution – Don’t get your phone loaded with too many themes downloaded from the internet or atleast, don’t switch themes frequently. These themes, mind you, also load up things into your already falling Nokia 3110c phone memory.
Cause 3 – Memory Cards – Some people have reported that Nokia 3110c restarts due to some issues with the memory card.
Solution – Remove the card, get it formatted and then insert it back and then restore factory settings. This just might solve the issue.
Cause 4 – Transferring data via Blueooth / USB data cable (or) Updating Music Library – A few people have reported that their Nokia 3110c mobile phone restarts when updating the music library.
Solution – Don’t try updating of music library frequently or don’t often transfer data in/out of your Nokia 3110c phone.
Cause 5 – MP3 files
Solution – This may seem dumb, but consider converting all your MP3 music files to WMA and then store them on the memory card. Some users suggested this.

Also try this:-----
It ll work . you dont need to go 4 the firmware v5.05
If ur phone restarted 3 or 4 times and switched off automatically. Try this
1] Remove the battery and Micro SD card
2] wait about 5 minutes
3] Then switch On the phone WITHOUT the memory card

Now ur phone working well without restarting

4] Then you must restore Factory settings frm the Settings Menu
[default security code:12345]
{i know most of people have done this thing,but remember u have 2 go
with the correct order.Unless it will not work.OK}

5] Now apply a theme. The theme's size should be below 100kb

6] Now ur phone working fine without the Micro SD

7] Then wait about 5 minutes and Switch off ur phone

8] Remove the battery and insert the Micro SD
{Don t Format the memory card}

9] Switch On ur Nokia 3110c phone.
10] Now Keep ur free Phone memory space [Not the memory card's free space]
between 470kb - 499kb.

Now surely ur 3110c working fine about 5
months.During these time u can
1] Send/receive any file via bluetooth.
2] Enjoy Music,video, GPRS,Yahoo Go .....etc
3] Also u can Update music library anytime.
but remember below DONTs
1] Don t try to change themes.{u have to stick with a theme}
2] Charge ur phone in ON mode
3] Dont fully discharge the battery
4] Start charging ur phone when there is only a bar on Battery indicator
5] Dont erase calender notes

Make sure about above 5 Donts

Dont worry if ur phone restarted once.{U know the problem is restarting several times
and automatically swiched off.}

After 4 or 5 month there is a possibility to occur the problem again.
if so Follow the above steps again.
Good luck
To be frank, This mobile has this as a generic problem. As I told, The problem can come back again.

Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.
