Question: nokia lumia 635 red screen with nokia logo.

I installed win 10 preview on my nokia lumia 635 recently, but when i tried to do a rollback to windows 8.1 using the recovery tool my phone got stuck on a red screen with nokia logo in white with infinite restarting by itself, and i can't figure out what to do. I wish i hadn't installed that damn windows 10 in the first place.

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.

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.

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.

Answer:Why is my nokia lumia 925 crashing at the nokia screen?

Hi, I had a similar problem. First I thought it was the battery, until I eventually figured out that it was the motherboard. Changing it won't be easy, so take it to a shop

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:

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 !

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.

Answer:Fraud:Nokia Care ,Chennai have given me fake copy of Nokia Lumia 820 after I faced some issues. What do I do?

I refurbished phone isn't a fake phone. It's a refurbished phone.

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%...)

Answer:Is screen calibration there in nokia lumia 520?

There is no Screen Calibration in settings (like where you tap different targets to lock in accuracy for how you touch the screen).
Typing automatically? So the keyboard is too sensitive, yet the screen is not sensitive enough?
Check settings > touch > put sensitivity to "normal" (if it is not) or "high" (whichever is different) and reboot. If that solves your problem, go back to the sensitivity setting you had before and reboot again.
?If your problem does not get sorted; run a backup and do a hard reset.

I have a Nokia Lumia 925. The screen freezes and the phone acts dead. You can't reset it doing the volume down & power. After this happened again today, I'll be getting my 4th one in about 6 months. After calling for a replacement, the battery finally died on this and I was able to reboot it after I plugged it in to recharge. Oh yeah, it got hot enough to fry an egg when the screen locked up. It does this without warning. My last phone locked up while I was at the airport getting ready to fly home. With no way to contact my family, I would have been sitting in a airport in the middle of the night. I never had a problem with my Nokia Lumia 710. The only reason I quit using that phone is they quit publishing apps for it so I needed to upgrade to windows 8.

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.
Using a hard reset or the Lumia software recovery tool may help if it is software (but than the soft reset should have help)

Hard Reset... But you loose your data? So that defeats the purpose.

Hi guys,
Since yesterday I have a problem with my 920. The screen looks like this: (not my photo, I found it on google and looks exactly like my screen).
What can it be? This happened after I wanted to upload a video from my phone to One
Drive. I tried soft, hard reset and nothing. Curious is that I can hear the notifications, or if someone calls me, but the screen still the same.
Can it be fixed?

This started about a week ago - when I went to my carrier they simply restarted it and it fixed the problem. But since then, every other time I receive a phone call the screen turns fuzzy with black and white static noise. I have been restarting it every time that happens - but it seems like a short term fix. Is there anything else I can do? Or is it a faulty phone?

Does your screen light up and the phone vibrate, but just doesn't ring, or it makes no indication that a phone call is coming in?

I just recently reseted my nokia lumia 830 today and after the gears logo had appeared and the usual initial set up, it got stuck to the point where it says "a few more apps still need to finish intalling. It should just take another moment or two" for about an hour already. What should I do? I am extremely panicking right now, because I really am clueless to what's happening to my phone at this moment. Please do help me. Thank you!

Answer:My Nokia Lumia 830 is stuck on the installing screen, how can I get it off of this?

DO NOT PANIC! I repeat... DO NOT PANIC... Now that I have that outta my system...
Give it another hour (just walk away from the phone, but make sure it's on charge)
If your not willing to wait any longer, soft reset the phone (press volume button and power button at the same time and hold until you feel the phone vibrate, then you let go). This will restart the process..
If that fails after an hour as well, report it and we'll go for a hard reset

My phone since 1AM this morning has been stuck in the sleep screen. It still shows the time correctly, maybe freezing for a minute or two and still bopping around, but nothing I do wakes it up. If I double tap it it does nothing and when I press the button on the side it does nothing. I had an alarm on and it went off but it still didn't wake up so I had to wait for the alarm to turn off itself. Someone called me and it stayed on the sleep screen as it rang. It still vibrates when I get notifications but still stays on the sleep screen. I've had this phone for two years now and I really hope this isn't permanent. Please help!

Answer:My Nokia Lumia is frozen on the sleep screen, what do I do?

Press and hold volume up and power button till your phone shuts down and restarts. It fixes the issue, but why is it happening I simply don't know. Bring your phone to the repair service.

I'm usually really good to my phones, never having dropped them in water, always careful with them, ect. My brother who lives in Nebraska (I live in Washington) put me on his Cricket plan and got me the Nokia Lumia 630 which I absolutely love.
Anyway, last Thursday I had a ****ty week. I mean I had one of those kill yourself because then it'll get better weeks and to top it off, my boyfriend and I had just had a huge fight. I was upset, wasn't thinking because I was too upset and stupidly had my phone in my back pocket of my jeans which I almost never do.
I went in to use the bathroom and... That's right, my phone fell in the toilet. Actually fell in the toilet. I immediately got it out, dried off what I could and did everything I could think of; putting it in front of a fan, taking out the battery, sim and SD card, using a bit of rubbing alcohol on the back of the phone to counter the water, putting it rice for days, ect, which leads me to my problem now:
My phone does turn on. It actually seems perfectly fine; the sounds, the display, everything except the touch screen. I touch it and there's no vibration, nothing. The touch screen simply does NOT work when I touch it. But I also lost the SIM card by accident, so I was wondering if the touch screen could be dead or if it's not responsive because it doesn't have a SIM card?
I realize this might be an extremely stupid question and I do apologize if it is, but the Nokia Lumia 630 is the only phone I've had that requires a SI... Read more

Answer:Nokia Lumia 630 touch screen fried?

The touch issue is not due to a missing SIM card. And Cricket should be happy to send you a new SIM.
One trick to try is to [GENTLY] press along the top and bottom edges of the screen. Some connectors may have gotten loose. If that does work it may only be temporary. You might want to check a repair shop for an estimate to see if they can do anything.
Good on you for doing the rice thing... Unfortunately, there is a water detection strip inside phones now and it will have shown your phone got submerged. That voids any warranties.

I have a Lumia 520 that had a small dink on the upper right hand corner with the tiniest crack on it. I was using it like I do normally, and then 5 minutes after I put it in my pocket, a long crack is diagonally across my screen. Bearing in mind this had a case on, I was wondering what caused that crack to grow so big. It's rendered the bottom half of the crack of touchscreen unusable and I don't have the money to repair or replace it. So what should I do?

Answer:Nokia Lumia 520 unorthodox screen crack?

Well, it was chipped, once you damage glass to the point of cracking/chipping, the glass will crack along the grain very easily, more than likely you flexed it a bit while it was in your pocket and under the stress the crack worked its way down, the only thing you can do is replace the glass or buy a new phone.

Welcome to Windows Central.
For the "lock screen", could it be that what you're seeing is the Glance Screen with your custom background image?
Nonetheless, if you're having troubles with your phone (the charging issue) just two days after purchase, you could bring it back to the store where you bought it together with the official receipt and have it replaced.

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

I purchased this phone last Nov 11 from a Nokia store. I only noticed them after a week of using my Icon (not sure though if they have always been there or not). There are 3 curve lines parallel to each other that I see on my phone's screen. The lines stretch from that part between the home key and the search key to the left middle part of the screen. I do not call them scratches. They couldn't be. I cannot remember putting my phone in my pocket or inside somewhere it would scratch. And the lines do not seem to be on the glass' surface. They seem to be beneath it. I did'nt bother returning the phone back to the store - it still functions perfectly. And the lines, you will only see them if you turn the phone off or lock it and look closely. It's just strange. Might be a manufacturer defect. Look at your Icon, you may have the same. Anyone knows what these lines are?

I powered up my Nokia 630 last week which had been inactive for about a year, as I was keeping it as a backup to my 735. All was fine and working but them it offered to install an update, which I accepted and let it roll the wheels on. Now there is a blank grey screen where the tiles page should be. Switching it off and on plus a soft reset doesn't change it. Basically I get my pin number page then empty grey after tapping it in. I can see signal level, battery level etc icons at the top of the screen but nothing else. The phone was working fine prior to the update, I'm assuming this was not a Windows 10 update as the 630 doesn't qualify...?

I have an unbranded Nokia Lumia 1520 running Lumia Cyan with the latest Developer Preview version. My phone worked perfectly until a couple days ago.
Now, when I turn on the screen, the display looks fine for a few seconds but a white veil slowly appears, getting brighter and brighter to the point where the screen almost becomes unreadable. I also noticed a drop in the display quality, which is clearly not a 1080p but resembles more that of a Lumia 520.
Has anyone ever had this problem before? Could you tell me whether it is a hardware or software issue?
Thank you very much for your answer

Answer:Why does my Nokia Lumia 1520 have a white veil on the screen?

it sounds as though the ambient light sensor is defective or being obscured. If you have a case/screen protector, try removing it and see if that fixes the issue.
You can also try going into settings->brightness and turning off "adjust automatically and see if that sorts it out.
If that's not the problem, your screen might have given up the ghost.

So I've started having an issue where the display will just black out on me and won't turn back on. I've found that by pressing down on the screen itself, I can get the display back, but if I move it around too much or leave it in my pocket for a while it will "break" again.
The actual touch response is fine, just difficult navigating the phone on a black screen, so I'm hoping somebody here knows of any possible fixes to check? (Note: I'm comfortable opening and have opened electronic devices and re-soldering/ed components that needed it. I'd just prefer to know what I'm looking for in advance if it comes to that. I'd imagine it is probably a banner strip if it is the screen blacking out on me.)

I assume you mean the live tiles have become smaller. This can happen if you turn off 'Show more tiles' in start+theme and then turn them back on. To change the size of live tiles, hold them for about a second, they will start floating. Then tap on the bottom right corner of the tile to change their size.

Currently have a Lumia 720 and maximum time out is 5 mins which does not help with golf GPS apps such as Free Caddy as it locks soon after each shot rather than be free flowing. May upgrade to 735 if 'never' function is available - as it seems to be in a random selection of Lumias.

Answer:Does the Nokia Lumia 735 have a 'Never' option for the Lock Screen Timeout?

It's not a random selection but a ROM limited feature. Some ROM variants have it, some don't. Same could be said about the static IP option in Wi-Fi settings and field test mode. I don't have a 720 myself so can't really tell you which ROM had it enabled but if you managed to find one you can always flash to that ROM to get the lacking features, a phone change is really not needed.

Hi All,
Please provide your valuable inputs in the matter related to screen issue that i am facing with my beloved Lumia 1520, my first windows phone.
Few days back, after attending a call, when i put down the phone it was dropped on the table from a distance of 2 inches..and I instantly notices two flashing white dots in form of a star on top side of phone, on both sides.
When I deliberately bang the top end of phone from a distance of 2 inches again, I again saw those flashing white star dots on screen.
The color changes to black when the background is white and it is also visible on glance screen.
Now please advise, if this is an issue related to hardware or software? Does anyone else has faced similar condition? Should I visit Nokia care and have the service people a look at the issue.
The phone behaves normally otherwise, apart from the touch sensitivity issues that is faced globally..!!!
Thank you for your valuable inputs..!!!
Regards- Niraj

Answer:Nokia Lumia 1520 Screen Spots when hit from back

Hmmm it appears that there might be some damage to the screen from what I can tell. I don't think this would be software related. If this is constantly visible I would definitely try visiting Nokia Care to see what they can do for you. If the screen issue is only visible when you hit the top end of the phone with force then I would not worry about this at all.
Hope this was helpful!
