it wont turn on and the screen flashes white every 10 seconds or so. it's fully charged. anyone else had this?
my samsung slidey thing (i forget which one) went nuts because of a loose connection. totally fucked the phone in the end
is the phone trying to fix itself. advice on a forum says to charge it for an hour then try again???
is another option (apparently!)
it says its fully charged and is now continuing to flash at me
take it into the carphone warehouse or something tomorrow maybe?
did you try connecting it to your computer?
otherwise i suppose i'll take it in tomorrow : (
mine's a nokia n73 and it's possessed.
if anyone has any advice?
these things often sort themselves out
new firmware is needed. that or they'll have to do a system flash and restart the phone entirely, beyond factory settings even. you'll lose everything on the phone that's saved to the internal memory, unfortunately, but you'll get a working phone again.
happened to me cos i had too many messages in my inbox. do you have too many messages in your inbox?
and it didn't turn back on after that. i don't mind losing everything really. i took it to phones 4 u and they said it would cost at least £30-40 to send it off. madness
if they give you any trouble tell them to choke on my nuts too. bloody crooks.
go to carphone warehouse. a big one. if they have a technician person there they will do it for free for you.
i'll try and find one tomorrow, it seems like a total rip off
most carphone warehouses can do it on the spot
i went to carphone warehouse but they told me i needed to prove my phone was not stolen, which i couldnt, but then i got told about this shop out of town and they fixed it for £10!
glad it's fixed :D
tenner isn't too bad, considering price quoted by phone 4 u. glad it's all good.
