Why is my Nokia Lumia 928 not working properly?

Question: Why is my Nokia Lumia 928 not working properly?

Hey guys, so I've noticed a lot of kinks in this phone since I got it about a year ago, but since updating to 8.1, the problems have gotten worse. This morning when I woke up I noticed airplane mode was on. I cant get it off, and then on top of that, my volume isn't working, and I have reason to believe the mic is dysfunctional as well, because when using the bing voice search it will not activate, and I cant record videos. Id love to say I could test the mic issue by calling someone, but alas, airplane mode cant be disabled so no calls/texts can be made.
I was told by a friend that downgrading back to 8.0 or lower could help, however I am unsure on how to do this, or unsure of where I can go online to do it.
If their is anything I can do to fix this besides sending my phone in for replacement, help would be appreciative.
I would prefer not to spend anymore money on this seeing as it hasn't lasted very long :/
Thanks in advance.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Why is my Nokia Lumia 928 not working properly?

There have been some "Airplane Mode" bugs... But it should have been patched. You can't download the patch as you are stuck in airplane mode.
Use the second tool on this page to reflash your device. (Lumia Software Recovery Tool.) It should put you up to date at 8.1 + patches. FAQ - How can I recover/reset/restore my phone software? - Microsoft - USA
If that does not solve it, you would need either the repair or a trip to XDA forums (search that) to get the instructions on flashing firmware and you also have to find the right 8.0 ROM...

The downloading and installation works perfectly but then it immediately says that it's not recognizing my Nokia Lumia Phone! They say elsewhere that there is a special app for the Lumia but this app is limited to music, pictures, videos, podcasts and
ringtones. So contacts, the most important for a Phone, is not even included. There are surely other makes where this is possible and where you can easily see and manage all contacts. On which cellphones this Nokia Suite is really working then?

I enabled encryption via exchange on my phone maybe 2 days ago and I'm not sure if its related but, nothing will load on my phone. What I mean by this is no contacts, music, pictures, etc will appear. All old text messages appears and any new ones appear coming from the phone number and not the original contact. I have checked on the files when connected to a PC and the space filled using storage sense and its all correct.
Applications will work fine in general use it appears but nothing old is loading.
Any idea what is going on and how I may be able to resolve it short of reinstalling it and having to reorganize everything?

I have soft-resetted the phone numerous times, and almost everytime, the phone's quick actions bar would be blank for 2-3 minutes. I wanted to do a hard reset, but the phone has been unable to do a backup for the past year. It has also been impossible for me to switch off my mobile data. How do I solve these issues?

Answer:My Nokia Lumia 930's power button has stopped functioning properly, and i can't lock or unlock my ph

Backups can get stuck when the old data is corrupt. You can go online to onedrive and view your backups and delete the old one. You'll then be able to backup with a fresh copy.
How old is the phone? If it's under 24 months, you cam send the phone away for repair. The button is probably not lined up with the actual button on the circuit board and would need to he put back into place.

Windows 8.1 update started on my phone but it has been running for the whole day (about 12 hours) I tried turning it on but every time I just see the spinning gears and then it shuts down again

Answer:Why is my Nokia Lumia 520 not working?

Power it down and remove the SD card.
Plug into the AC charger, it will boot and let the update roll. If it gets stuck again do a soft reset. (Hold Volume Down + Power until the phone vibrates and then release the buttons.)

My Nokia lumia 735 comes on ith no problem and even sends me updates but when I try to use the screen it doesn't work I've tried soft reset and it still doesn't work.

Answer:Why isn't my Nokia Lumia 735 screen working?

I think you say you can read text but if you tab on the screen it does not respond.
In this case you have a defect of your touch panel. (Do you maybe see a small crack). I would recommend to backup your data (connect it with your pc) and send it for repair/ replacement.
PS
Using a hard reset or the Lumia software recovery tool may help if it is software (but than the soft reset should have help)

So, I downloaded the most modern version of it. The version fit for 8.1 cellular smartphones. Then I used a two way cable. I plugged the first side into the place my phone charger would go on my cellular phone. The second side into the USB port on the back side of my PC box (not the mainframe/monitor). Then it said no connection found, so I redid it. I did this two more times, and it did not work. I did notice the cellular phone side didn't fit fully in though.

Unfortunately it seems that many new Lumias have problem with bad GPS.
Problem is not in HERE drive.
Test Your GPS with GPS test tool in Hardware tests (get for free from Windows Store). Switch internet and GPS off, move a couple miles away from Your place, switch GPS on (but not internet !). Count seconds until GPS gets ready. If You live on place with good satellite view, GPS should start for 3-5 sec.

(I checked the settings, it's on). And whenever I plug in the charger, it will charge, but it will not make a noise indicating that it has been plugged in. I restarted it, didn't work, I turned my volume to max, it didn't work. It is running Lumia Cyan. (8.1)

I just recently installed 8.1 on my windows nokia lumia 8.1 phone and now my internet wont work at all without wifi! I have tried resetting it and it didnt work

Answer:Why isn't my internet working on my Nokia Lumia 8.1?

Check if your phone was block on by the router--> go to your router settings--> mac filtering, some router may have different settings UI. Restart your phone, connect to power source--> reconnect to your wifi if that didn't help you may have to connect it to your PC and recover to the original OS version using the recovery tool, see if the wifi works after you recover it, if it didn't work it may need a repair.
Other info: Sometimes it lose connection be sure you're not blocking the antenna on your phone or the router, I experience it sometimes why I'm doing is I restart my router by removing the power source for about 10 sec and reconnect it again. It should work.

Hi All,
I'm having terrible experience with Lumia 730, I bought a phone 2 days ago and I noticed that the filter on the ear piece is missing, when I approached Nokia Care they said it's a manufacturing defect and asked the vendor to replace the phone. Today I got a replacement and in this phone the rear camera doesn't work. Microsoft Camera/Nokia Camera doesn't work, they just open and then get closed without doing anything. I tried resetting the phone 3 times, still it didn't help. The front cam works fine in Nokia Selfie app, but when I click on switch camera it gets stuck there. Now I have to go to the Vendor and then to Nokia Care again. :(
I was using Lumia 520 before, but I decided to switch to Lumia 730 as 520 was intermittently rebooting itself. Pretty bad experience.
I'm pretty sad that the brand I trust the most is no more providing good quality phones.

Answer:Why isn't my Nokia Lumia 730 rear camera working?

They handed you another defective/refurbished phone, it appears. 730 is a cool phone and it certainly does not have such defects. Just have it replaced again and hopefully you'll get the perfect one then:-)

A week ago while on vacation I dropped my Nokia 521 in the toilet. I immediately took it apart and dried it including where the battery and SIM card are located. When I put the battery back in it turned on so i thought it was okay. Later, I noticed that it had the fire bolt and gear on the screen. Not knowing what this meant, I plugged the phone in the charger and I then got the battery symbol with question mark. The phone has not worked since and will not turn on. I ordered a new battery but that is not the issue either. After doing some research, I saw something that said you can open it up and take out the battery and SIM card and put the phone in 99% alcohol. Has anyone heard of this? I am trying to get enough power to get my contacts and pictures transferred off of the phone. No, I never backed it up on the Microsoft Windows site.

Answer:Nokia Lumia 521 not working after dropping in toilet

Chances are it's gone completely, however this might work.
Get a air tight container or zip lock back fill it with rice, place the phone inside turned off and leave it alone for a few days or more (could take several weeks). I had a bold 9700 which met it's demise in a pocket full of Coca Cola. Long story short, a open can fell straight into my raincoat pocket at work when I was reaching for the phone (had a mountain of paperwork on my desk lol) - this happened several years ago.
I left the phone in there for several weeks, impatiently I took it out in a few days - nothing, 1 week - nothing, two weeks - nothing, then I left it there for 8 weeks. Phone turned on, but the screen was dead. I was able to recovery my data using the disconnect trick.

thanks in advance

Answer:text message contacts not working from IOS nokia lumia 639

Did you turn off imessage on your iPhone 5? I'm betting the contacts you are having issues with are iPhones. Try turning off imessage on the iPhone. If that doesn't work you might have to make some changes to your Apple account. And if that doesn't work. Have your friends make sure they do not have your phone # setup as an iPhone. I know this because one of my friend has went thru this issue.. imessage is a pain in the **** when going to a different OS.

then i turned it on and the power button works and volume buttons too
but the screen is untouchable nothing happens?

Answer:How can I fix my Nokia Lumia 520 that fell down from my bed and the digitizer isnt working?

The cracks damaged your touch panel so it does not work anymore.
You have to replace the touch panel to let it work again.
But at the moment the 520 is very cheap so i do not know what is cheaper.
Send your 520 for repair or buy a new one.
And if you send it to repair be sure that they use a genuine original OEM part to replace the broken touch panel.

Last month while walking i was listening songs and suddenly song stopped playing...i thought that my earphone was damaged so i switched to my headphones coloud boom when i returned to home...and yes they were working properly...but about from last week i'm suffering from weird problem... Songs were stopped if i slightly touch to upper part of male connector of jack(coloud boom) and then i have to remove jack and then reconnect it... today i got that my earphone and headphone are in good condition as i tried them on my laptop they are working very well...
So my question is what should i do to repair my phone's jack...should i give it to service center(as i bought it last year on 14th december so phone is under the warranty period) or should i try something at home?

I often text a family group consisting of nine members. I can receive their group text message threads, but when I try to respond, I get "Can't Send Message, Try Again" and no matter how many times I press "Try Again", it won't send.
I've called AT&T (my carrier) and the Windows device support several times. Windows support tells me to turn the group texting button in settings, to "off". Then I can send to the nine member group, but it goes to each individually, not to the group thread.
Very frustrating; enough that I'm considering not using this phone. Any help would be appreciated. I can't believe that a basic cell phone feature like this would be a problem. Thanks!

Hi! Yesterday I started having some issues with the whatsapp and messenger apps, in case of the messenger app it stays at the "connecting to network" stage even though my internet is working properly.
In the whatsapp case, images and audios would not download regardless of the fact that I have over 1GB of free space in my sd card, I tried to unistall and reinstall the app but now it wont verify my number, it displays a message telling me that it cant connect to the network.
I checked today and both apps are having the same issues, I have a nokia lumia 625 with windows 8.1.

I have recently purchased a Nokia Lumia 730 Dual SIM mobile device. I downloaded Facebook App Version 8.3.3.0 from Microsoft Store on it. The one issue that's been bothering me too much is that it's not notifying me the activities of my friends. For instance, it does not notify me when my friends update their status or upload a photo or video. The live tile on the Start screen only shows activities involving only me. E.g. it notifies me if someone has commented on my post or photo, if someone likes my post or photo, someone sends me a friend request or someone sends me personal message. To sum-up, it is notifying me with the activities involving only me. If my friends update their status or post something, it will not notify me that. Here, I would like to mention some important points about the settings I have made to my Lumia device. First, I have subscribed to the "Toasts and Live Tile" (which is checked for Wall Posts, Feed Comment, Feed Comment reply, Photo Tag, Photo Comment, Tagged Photo comment, Photo comment reply and Friend confirmation) option for mobile devices under the "Settings" of Facebook App. Second, I have also subscribed to the all available notification updates option available in the main Facebook account settings.

Hi,I bought this Nokia Lumia 820 in Jan,2013 from Chennai,India.After 6 months I faced some issues like low battery life and also a line at the center of the screen.So I went to Nokia Care, Taramani, Chennai-India,they told me that they will send it to their head office and may take a week time.I agreed and went back on the desired date .Then they told that Company has decided to give me a new Lumia 820 instead of my old Lumia 820 as they were not able to get the accurate solution.But the warranty will be carry forward.I agreed and came back home.From then onwards, I didn't faced any issues.Now after 2 years,I broke my LCD of same Lumia 820 accidentally in San Francisco,CA-USA.I went to one of the repair center here and the first question he asked me was "Did anybody tried to open it?".I replied no after in Chennai,India and that too was new.To my shock he said "It's a fake copy ...the screws were stripped."They cheated and gave me used phone instead of my new phone.
Is this the way they are cheating customers.
I need an answer for this from Nokia India.

I've read some similar (but not identical issues) on the forum. Hopefully someone can assist.
My phone battery went dead while using GMAPS which ate up the battery very quickly.
Been trying to charge it for hours, but all I get is a flashing WINDOWS symbol at the bottom of the phone, then the NOKIA logo appears about every 30 seconds, but then nothing else happens.
Tried pressing the POWER OFF and VOLUME BUTTON simultaneously for extended periods, but no joy.
I have too much stuff on the phone to do a hard reset, and I'm on the road, so kind of in need in a quick and easy solution that doesn't affect my data (if one exists).

Answer:Windows 10 Nokia Lumia 930 - NOKIA logo flashes up, but does not boot

Maybe the device is on a reboot loop somehow, when you try to charge it keeps on trying to reboot but fails because the battery is out of enough power to finish the boot.
Leave the device connected to the charger for a while as the device is deeply discharged then try the soft reset combo power off and volume button.

Please can you help?

The footage was no where to be found, not in my camera roll, not in any of the folders and not on my onedrive. I thought I must have made a mistake so I took about 10 seconds of footage as a test and it saved fine. I also turned my phone on and off.

Hi guys, greetings from Nairobi. I've had my Nokia Lumia 620 for a little over 6 months now. I was on 8.1 through the developer's preview. So I was just sitting there, hadn't used my phone for around 15 minutes. When I checked the phone, it was stuck on the Nokia screen. I assumed that it was restarting so I left it for a couple more minutes. It's been on the screen for around 5 hours. I have tried the soft and hard reset several times but still nothing works. I'm still stuck on the Nokia screen and the device is not detected when I plug it on the laptop through the USB cable. Seen a couple of videos on using Navifirm but can't do much because the device isn't being detected. Hoping I won't have to take it to the care center. Anything else I can try? Looking forward to your responses. Much thanks.
By hard resetting I followed the following steps:
Turn off the Lumia,
Pressed and held the Power Button, did not release until the phone vibrates.
Pressed and held the Volume Down Button, did not release until the LCD showed the exclamation mark.
Pressed Volume Up Button Key and released
Pressed Volume Down Button Key and released
Pressed Power Button Key and released
Pressed Volume Down Button Key and released.
The soft reset was simply power button and volume down button.
I should also point out that the USB cable I'm using isn't the one that I got the phone with :) lost that one.
Thanks guys.:)

Answer:My Nokia Lumia 620 has been stuck on the Nokia startup screen for 5 hours now.

Try a different cable and use Nokia Care Suite to reset the phone, you will lose everything on the phone but it should reset it to factory settings. You will then probably need to get it updated via Developer preview again...good luck.

This is a question that may have been asked previously so I apologize if this is a reoccurring thing. I've finally decided to leave the Apple ecosystem and start looking for a windows phone. Its come down to the Lumia 925 and the Lumia 1520 on AT&T. I've reports and blogs about problems with each, more so with the 925. I have small hands for a guy so the 1520 is somewhat intimidating. The 925 however, I've read has poor reception problems, battery issues, and heating problems. Would anyone be able to inform me if the 925 issues have been resolved through updates or if the problems still continue? Also, if either of the two phones developed problems with 8.1? (beta or if you received the update today since it has been released). Thanks so much

Answer:Nokia lumia 925 vs Nokia lumia 1520

Well I have the 925, was part of the dp and now have cyan as well... When I first received my phone the battery life was horrible, but after switching off some of the background tasks, draining it (a few times) and charging it again the battery life stabilized :) With 8.1 the battery life for most 925-ers improved a bit more. The heating issue did remain tho, however I should note that the 925 was made for casual use and not for intense gaming (anything that requires a lot of ram usage).. Personally i solved this problem by purchasing a terrapin back cover case :D The heating is still there (yes Im a gamer from time to time), but with the cover on you will barely notice it! My reception is pretty good, but I don't live in the US so we have that.. Wifi has been an issue, but apparently that was a general issue (not limited to the 925)...
I can't say anything about cyan yet, because I just updated lol

PS. RThe phone stils works properly on the kit etc... - its just the nusiance of listening to it connect (& disrupting radio/music eytc... while doing so).

When my phone begins to boot up, it crashes a couple seconds after the nokia logo pops up. Also, I don't think that the software is telling the hardware to charge the battery correctly because it has been charging for several hours but when detached from a charger, it immediately dies.
When on the charger, I tried a soft reset by holding the power button and volume down keys for 10-15 seconds which was ineffective I also tried a hard reset by holding the power button until the nokia screen appears, then holding the volume down button for the exclamation mark to appear but it shuts down before this happens.
Other notes: It shows the flashing icon light when on the charger and at times tries to boot up but when at the nokia screen shuts down.

Hello, I bought a Nokia Lumia 520 a while back (About two years ago or something i'm not too sure) It was perfectly fine until all of the sudden I couldn't hear anything apart from Ringtones (Couldn't listen to songs, couldn't hear people when calling etc) after messing around with the phone it turned out to be the earbud jack (can't remember the correct word at the moment) anyhow, I fixed it by basically shoving a tooth pick in it. So i'm like okay fine. But recently the phone got stuck in Airplane mode, I tried literally everything apart from going to the store to get it fixed because my warranty ran out and i'm not going to pay for this piece of crap. So, today I tried the "Windows Phone Recovery Tool", I let it do its thing while I take a shower but when I came back it was stuck on the red Nokia title screen. Unplugged the battery, re-connected it with my PC, pressed the Volume down button etc. Nothing works! And when it's plugged into the PC, the Windows Recovery Tool says "Acces is Denied. Verify Credentials"
So yeah. I am furious. I have never, ever had so many problem with a phone before..
Here are some screenshots:
Windows Recovery Tool: prntscr.com/69p0vf
The Red Nokia Title Screen (My Phone): prntscr.com/69p3wj

Answer:Can I get some help with my Nokia Lumia 520 (Red Nokia Title Screen)(8.1)?

1. Calm down ( you gotta have patience while working with gadgets )
2. You shouldn't shove things other than the hp jack into the hp port.
3. Airplane mode ? (tried going to settings and trying to disable it or remove the sim and put it back in / restart ?? )
4. That "Red Nokia Tile Screen" you saw was the firmware download screen.
5. One does not simply don't pull out a phone while its undergoing firmware loading.
6. Try with Windows Phone Recovery Tool again. (This time wait ... and have patience.)
7. The only and last solution is Lumia Software Recovery Tool. Be patient !

No clue.
First, we'd have the see the rollout begin, meaning the 630 probably won't be too far behind. My best guess is 8.1 Update 1 + Denim going out later this year, albeit starting.
Second, given the track record of US carriers in rolling out updates, you're probably looking at a few extra weeks or months.

So... I have a Lumia 1020 (ATT), and I was trying to roll it back to Windows 8 so that I could get the Cyan update. I know I should have been patient, but I wasn't. I knew that the mini USB connection on my phone was kinda quirky, and sometimes it would connect to my computer when I plugged it in and sometimes it wouldn't (Windows would tell me that it would connect and disconnect, repeatedly, and sometimes it said it didn't recognize the device.)
So while I was trying to do the recovery, it connected and disconnected, and the Nokia Recovery Tool didn't go anywhere. I was hoping that it would but after a long while, it didn't go anywhere again. (it was stuck at 0%...)
I restarted the Nokia Recovery Tool and my Phone...but the recovery tool won't pick up my phone, and my phone is stuck on the red nokia screen.
