Nokia Lumia 520 with Nokia CK-100 Car Kit - Windows 8.1 problem

Question: Nokia Lumia 520 with Nokia CK-100 Car Kit - Windows 8.1 problem

Hi. Having a problem with Nokia Lumia 520 and Nokia CK-100 Car Kit.
Was connecting & running fine while phione was Windows 8.
Immediately after the Windows 8.1 upgrade this changed.
Now every time I start the car the phone "connects" multiple times (used to do so just once).
So it goes "Phone Connected", followed by "Player Connected" about 2/3/4/5 times at the start of every journey.
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).
Tried un-pairing & re-pairing the devices etc... - no joy.
Any ideas?

Please can you help? Normally I have no troubles taking heaps of photos & videos with the Nokia Pro Camera App on my Nokia Windows phone, but last night I recorded about 3 minutes of footage and after recording it had completely disappeared. 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. This morning my friend tried to record about 4 minutes of footage, and again, afterwards- the same thing.. no where to be found :( Any suggestions?

Also make sure the app has been updated to the latest version (now called Nokia Camera), and then go to settings, scroll to the bottom and click 'find photos and videos shot with Nokia Camera'

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).
Thanks

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,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?

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.

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?

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 !

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

Hi All,
I got the Windows Phone 8.1 update yesterday and I started the install. However, it took such a long time and also drained the battery like anything, even while my phone was connected to charger. Now, I am not able to install the update, as the phone is not charging. As soon as it starts charging, it also restarts the install, but after a while, either it drains the battery or gets too much heated that it shuts down. It's always in the same loop and I am not able to use my phone any more neither can I complete the 8.1 update.
I would really appreciate if someone can suggest any resolution to the problem.
Thanks in Advance,

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 entered correctly and successfully logged in. Then in next window it asked for syncing my facebook account with my windows phone. This page had two buttons "configure" and "not now". I chose configure. Then moments later next page comes up which asks for "using facebook photos on your lock screen".
This page also has two buttons like previous page "configure" and "not now". Problem is none of these two buttons are sensitive. Not able to proceed further from this page as not able to press any of these buttons. When I close the app and open it again the same page comes up.

This normally only happens if you've ejected the sd card from your device without properly safely removing it from the system beforehand. I suggest you format your sd card, copy everything back over and in future you'll go into settings -> storage sense (also available from the app list of course) -> sd card -> remove sd card.

Are you deleting the history, not resetting IE's settings?
Also, if you clear history that often, you might want to use InPrivate mode, accessible by the three dots in the lower right when in tab view. A workaround, but I think its a workable one.

So I put it on charging and when the phone restarted the top icon for the charging was empty and was showing that it was charging. I let it charge for more then two hours and yet the same sign was coming. When I checked the battery life remaining however it said it was 100 percent charged. Also the same icon of the charging with the battery being empty keeps coming even when I take it off charging and then after a few minutes the phone dies.

Have had my phone for a week - several times now the touchscreen has "frozen" in that no areas of the screen work. - I can't even press the "start" button to bring the menu back. The side buttons also don't work - I can't turn it off or anything. If I leave it for, say, 30 seconds it all just starts working again. I did have a screen protector on, so took that off and thought that had solved the problem but today it has done it three times already. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Answer:Nokia lumia 625 touchscreen problem

Did you buy the product new? Or secondhand? If it's new you can turn it in to Nokia or Microsoft with a receipt and probably get a new one. If it's secondhand, they can't do anything for you. Try a hard reset, and see if that works, though. Hard resets often fix bugs like that.

Hello.
I need your help regarding a problem with my Nokia 520's firmware.
Because of a problem with 3G Browsing (it couldn't load any page on 3g, but on wi fi everything worked fine), I tried using official nokia recovery software. My phone was bought online. It has Hong Kong firmware, but I'm in Romania. After using that software, it re-installed the operating system, but now, here is the problem: all menus are in Chinese. Even the initial setup is now in Chinese. I could not use it anymore.
Could you please help me on how to resolve this issue.
Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Hi,
I have a Nokia Lumia 920 wp 8.1 NOT GDR 1. I have a problem backing up my phone. It gives me an error and I tried deleting my old backups via "manage backups" but it gives me the error even so. What to do???
Thank you!

Answer:Problem with backing up my Nokia Lumia 920

If you have installed live lock beta screen then that is causing the problem, as by default it will add default background to lock screen which is of more in size. Just try changing the lock screen background to any image less than 1MB and try backup it will work..

Hi Guys,
I'm using a Nokia Lumia 820 and every time I open the Photos app on my phone, it crashes and I'm unable to open any other folder/ app after that- including Settings. I have to open up my phone, remove the battery and start it up again in order for everything to start working again. But when I go to Photos again, the same problem occurs. Also, the phone does not turn off by itself (it gets stuck after swiping down to power off) and therefore I have to take out the battery to re-start again.
Anyone else facing the same issues? I'd be grateful for any help!

A dear lady who I am trying to assist has purchase a Nokia Lumia 930 Windows phone. The local 02 shop transferred her data from her old phone but things like her Contacts log have become muddled. It is far easier to resolve issues like these, together with backup, on a PC rather than on a mob. phone so I downloaded Nokia Suite onto the PC. Unfortunately her phone, for some reason, won't connect to Nokia Suite. I have spoken to Nokia who referred me to their support company B2X who were about as useful as a chocolate teapot! So far the support from Microsoft, Nokia and B2X, for a new item has been non-existent. Has anyone managed to connect a Lumia, particularly a 930 to a PC application/software programme in order to access it. Yes, I can access the date via My Computer but that doesn't give me full control over the 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.

Officially? Unclear.
I'm sure MS will make an effort to make it available, but Verizon could easily decide "nope".
However, when the Developer Preview launches (or more stable Insider builds come around) I'm sure you will be able to get in on that action.

Hello everyone, new member, first post, apologies if it's in the wrong place!
I work at an independent carpet shop. My boss has tasked me with finding out about updating the way we do things with phone/tablet technology.
There are 5 people here who would need to be involved. By that I mean would need a phone/tablet.
We want an electronic diary to do away with the large 2-page-a-day diary that we currently use that keeps getting misplaced. This is used for booking appointments for measures and quotes. Each morning, rather than gather round the diary, we could all have a synced calender of our own in our hands. We would all need access to it while we are out and about to put information in it.
I am an Android user, as are most of my friends. We all have a google calender each and we share them with each other. This way we know what we are all doing (work shifts and that, so we know when we're available for beers and such) and if need be, we can make an event and add the time and address for all to see.
This is the sort of thing my boss wants but for us sales guys and the fitters. I'm sure that windows can do similar if not the same sort of thing. If a measure can't be done by one of us, another can, and he will already have the time and location on his synced calender on his phone/tablet.
Also, related to this, we'd like to be able to access our price lists too. Currently these are all on Open Office spreadsheets. I know these can be converted into Excel files and I'm certai... Read more

Answer:Can Nokia Lumia's and Windows do this?

The last time I tried to hard reset it took me about a week. Does anyone else have this problem with the phone?

Answer:Never ending hard reset problem with nokia lumia 520

What I would do, is install the nokia recovery tool, and run it in "my phone can't/won't start" mode (there's a button for it). Hit that, then plug your phone in when it tells you and hopefully, it will sort it out.

Hi! I bought my Lumia in last November and since then it has faced various difficulties but I was able to solve it via net. I first downloaded Six Guns in February via PC and installed it without any problem. But since it had been updated I again downloaded it via PC (I do not have a Wi-Fi connection so I couldn't download it on my phone) but this time it is not installing moreover Asphalt 8 is also not installing. I searched it on the net and did a hard reset twice but it didn't help. Yesterday I installed many other games like Temple Run 2, Kingdoms & Lords, Ice Age Village via my SD Card and all installed perfectly and other apps and games from store also installed perfectly. Whenever I try to install it shows an error : "We're having trouble installing this app. Tap and hold the item, then tap retry, If you're trying to update an app and the problem continues, you might need to uninstall the app then install it again." The last line confuses me because I have not yet installed an app but it still shows to uninstall the app and retry. Further there is no problem with the memory because I have 4.10GB of free phone memory. Hope I'll get the answer here.

Answer:Problem installing Six Guns and Asphalt 8 in Nokia Lumia 520.

Memory and Storage are 2 different things. The Lumia 520 has only 512 MB of RAM and there are many apps that require 1 GB. RAM provides space for processing tasks while you are using the app; storage is like the hard drive on a computer, where files are stored, waiting to be called up to use RAM.
I have Asphalt 8 on my Lumia 920, but my daughter is the real Asphalt 8 junky. It would be my guess that the intense graphics and the speed at which scenery changes would definitely require some RAM. I noticed in the reviews for it in the WP App Store that others have also been unable to install it on a Lumia 520.
Reviewers in the Six Guns listing do indicate they are running it on the L520, so that one should be do-able. Since it is an XBox game, your stats may be stored in the cloud, but you might need to uninstall/reinstall that one, possibly losing all your stats (yeah, that sucks). If you decide to do that, I'd recommend uninstalling, restarting phone, then going to Storage Sense > Temp Files and clearing those before reinstalling.

Im reposting this, i just registered on the website
Hello guys,
So this is my first post on this website. I think you are the only people that can help me. I am buying a Nokia lumia 1520 rm937 from China (yes it's original) but the seller is telling me that the RM-937 version in CHINA has only 2 languages, but you can update the software normally like any other phone. I told her i want the international version with 30+ laguages, she then told me that she will be able to install a firmware for that, but i wont be able to update to 8.1 by my own (or any other version, and it's currently on WP8)
Please help me guys, what should i do? do you think i can install all the other languages AND be able to upgrade by myself?
Thanks :)
BTW i think she explained wrong. I do only need English as a language for the phone, but can i install ANY other language for my keyboard? this is what is important actually.

Answer:Nokia Lumia 1520 problem with seller regarding software?

If in doubt, walk away. You probably want to avoid anything that involves a custom or non-standard firmware - as you've been told, there's no upgrade path from that.
