Try this, it might work for you. First remove any extra memory card and sim card inside your phone. After doing that, turn on your phone without those things. If there is message "Please insert sim card" then your good to go. Put your sim card back to your phone and then turn it on again. If it is successfully start then next thing to do is to insert the memory card back to your phone and then start up your phone again. But if in this stage your phone failed to start, then the memory card it causing the problem. If all fails, then you need to format or hard reset your phone. Hold the * + 3 + green call key and then start up your phone while holding those buttons until you see a screen that shows formatting. Make sure you have enough battery power to do this procedure. You can plug the phone charger to make sure that everything will be okay.
Please leave comments for further instructions. Thanks..

Hi Friend, As you have mentioned that you have problem in the switch ON and OFF status,so kindly follows the below mentioned steps,which is known as hard reset as follows,
1.Switch OFF the mobile 2.Remove the sim card,battery and the memory card. 3.Hold the Switch ON/OFF button for 20 to 30 secs. 4.Replace the battery and the sim card alone. 5.Switch ON the mobile 6.After it has been switched ON about 1 to 2 minutes after replace the memory card
The best solution for this problem is to format the phone memory. U may think format will erase all applications but it is false . The essential softwares like mp3 player, camera, etc. are not erased.
The process for format of phone is :
1) turn off the mobile.
2) press and hold ( green dial button + 3 keypad + * ) and turn on the phone holding these 3 buttons(dial button + 3 + *) until formatting screen appears.
3) When formatting screen appears, just leave the keys. and ur phone is formatted now.
4) When finished, it asks for restart of phone.
5) Restart ur phone, and ur phone is ready.
