Switch on key stopped working and Nokia Sw Update dont recognize it anymore


My phone navigation keys werent responding, so I removed the battery, and returned it. After that phone booted and worked fine.
But then, switch on button on my Nokia 6288 simply stopped working and when I press it nothing happens.
I tried to update the software, but NSU doesn't recognize the phone.
Beside all this, phone works perfectly fine.

Phone didn't suffer any drops or hits any time.

So if anyone can help, thanks a lot!

    I took my mobile to the authorized repair service, and after they took a look onto my phone they said that main board has corroded due to moisture inside, which is completely impossible cause phone hasn't been even close to anything wet or exposed to rain. So, final answer was that it cant be repaired..

    After i got it back i tried to switch it on...and it is working ever since..

    Thank you all, Vehdad

Try a software reset, just make sure your contacts are backed-up first. It could either be *#7780# Restore factory settings or *7370#

I remove the protector of my phone..touchscreen is not working anymore..:'(

Dear user ,

Dont worry is it completely not working or working slow. if you can reach the "calibrate screen" option in your phone via the screen or by navigation keys if the are designed to work that way then try calibrating the screen normally , removing the upper screen guard wont may it stop functioning, it's just a issue of setting change, if it still does not work show it to the nearest service station

My nokia 3110c phone blinks thrice and switches off. PC does nor recognize the phone when connected. The phone does not remain on therefore I am not able to update the software. Please help.

Helo ,
Do the following step,
Here's how to hard reset or format your Nokia mobile phone:
1) Switch off your phone
2) Press and hold these 3 keys together:
-green dial key
-the star key(*)
-the number 3 key 3) Power on the phone

Warning: Do not release the keys until you see a formatting screen and even after the phone has started. Wait until the initial sound starts to play and the hand animation is displayed.
Hope this helps.

Hi my Nokia N85 got wet and is partly working - it switches on and screen and buttons light up, the number buttons work fine but all the navigation buttons on the front don't work so I can't do anything...

Hi, when a phone get's wet, it usually causes a lot of problem and it makes phone to malfunction.

What is making the phone's navigator key not to work is because the water is inside the navigator area.What you need to do is to remove the face cover of the phone and clean the keypad area and problem will be solved..

You can pass across your comments if you have any.
Take care.

My phone n79 key pod are not working?

I m having the same problem with mine... I took the battery out and put the phone in the freezer over night thinking it would remove some moisture... don't know if it did anything but today it works. Thinking about replacing it with a 5800 if it does not work.

The navigator 6710 won't work as a phone only the navigation switches on. When you switch it on the screen does not show the menu or the contacts. Noen of the keys work except the start for navigation.

amazingly the auto zoom in out is not a software problem.. it's hardware problem nd that's is why nokia is not getting in to help as its gonna cost it alot. the problem is that the upper portion has become touch sensitive. the acceot key , hang up key,the two selection keys and the navigation keys are made touch sensitive "delibrately" or intensionly.


Switch on button not responding

Hi your problem will be with a stuck key this not allowing other buttons to work the only way to solve this problem is to remove the outer casing and clean the pads behind the buttons it might have evn got damp and coroded as this causes the problems your describing.

The big problem is taking the phone apart as its not east to do and it also needs to be undone in certain order else you can warp the board destroying the phone completely and when putting back to gether it has to be done in certain order and the screws have to be tighten up to certain tension else the board will also warp.
If you are unsure of what you are doing then dont do it as you can destroy the phone beyond repair ok

You can try searching online for instructions on how to remove the cases but these are hard to come buy but would be of help to you.

Of unsure take it to phone shop as it wont cost to much to get repaired and it would save you destroying the phone beyond repair

Its not just the screws that need undoing their are also clips running along edge of the case and as its a slide phone their is a spring between the two halves that need removing before the ases can come off but this spring can destroy the ribbon betweent the two halves so be warned ok

3310 stops responding and restarts

HI valsys;
haven't encountered that but you may want to try resetting it as the last option. not sure what information will be lost if you do this but again, last resort. *#7780# reset to factory settings.

dont have a nokia phone to try though but i hope it helps,

if the problem still occur...hmmmm... did your phone had a hard fall lately? might be hardware problem
