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 there,

Try formatting your phone and see if it works.
First make sure your phone is turned off.Then press the following buttons simultaneously (at the same time:

Power button + * + 3

This will restore and reformat your phone into factory settings. Hopefully your phone will be able to start again as if it were being used the first time from the box.

Let me know if it works,

Hope I have been of assistance to you,

Cheers :)

Nokia 3230 start-up failed


have you tried reformatting it??

try this

12345 is a standard code and 00000, but if you change it and you have forgotten your unlock code, you'll just have to reformat it

key combination which is used to hard reset the phone (similar to #*7370). It is useful in some cases, for example when the phone cannot reboot.

The trick is
Switch off the phone.
Hold down the following three buttons: Green (call answer) button, * button, and ‘3′ button
While holding these buttons, press the power button and switch on the phone
When the message ‘Formatting’ appears on the screen, release all of the buttons...


reformatting your phone will delete all your data and also will restore all the defaults of your phone, and any corrupted application will be reinstalled, but if the formating doesn't work, you'll just have to re flash it, the safe way is to go to a near repair shop of your phone and have then to re flash your phone,

Problem is""phone star-up failed. contact the retailer"


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.
