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.

The wireless charging feature is pretty exciting. But it looks like a WP 7.5 phone, right?

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?

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.

I've had the phone for a month and the only app I've gotten to consistently work is my text messaging so far, and I'm curious to see if it's just me. My most recent issue is getting music onto the phone and I have tried the ridiculous Windows Phone App (the only use after two hours of trying to get it to work has been multiple repeated restarts of my phone and at one point, I think I got to name my phone though the name I gave it is long gone by now), the OneDrive App for the computer as well, which, in addition to not allowing me to upload any files, it won't even let me download the one thing that somehow made it to the storage.
At this point its a fancy flip phone, so I'm glad that it can still make calls (though getting calls to actually start is pretty spotty on occasion) and send and receive texts. Anyone know of anywhere I can go to get help with this awful excuse for a phone and terrible "apps" for my computer beyond a simple google search?

In general, as someone who has changed smartphone platforms several times and tried many more as a hobby... I believe a common problem when switching platforms is ingrained habits. Many times users try and make the new device behave as the old one did and they get frustrated when it does not work that way. That may or may not be your issue, I'm just making an observation. Take from it what applies and leave the rest.
Good Luck.

Hello,
I recently got a Nokia Lumia 635 (I think it had Windows 8.1). I had a few questions about my new windows phone.
1. Where can I find out my mobile phone number? I've been told I can find it by clicking on the phone icon and then going into settings, but I don't see it there (I see things like voicemail number).
2. When I click on the magnifying glass to do searching, it says "search web or phone." Is there a way I can change it so that searching is only done within the phone and never on the web?
3. My voicemail number is blank under phone settings. Why is this the case? Shouldn't it be the same as my mobile phone number?
Thank you.

Answer:Nokia Lumia 635 Windows Phone Questions

1. If you go to settings then go over to applications then chick phone you can find your number.
2. If you are on Wp8.1 and your regional and language settings are set to us with your location on you can use Cortana to search your phone to some degree. On WP8.1 Update 1 you can use Cortana in the UK and some other countries to do the same but they are in beta right now. Your only real alternative is to check the site for an app from Microsoft called Files which acts as a file manager.
3. Not really sure why this is blank, maybe someone else can help you with this one or you can check your providers website to help figure out what the number should be.

You can not. The developer, Niantic Labs, has not written it for windows 10 or 8.1, and they have locked it down so 3rd party apps don't work. You may never be able too it just depends if the developer decides to put it on Windows.

I have had a problem for the past 2 months, my Nokia Lumia 925 with Win 8.1 keeps shutting down spontaneously. This is my third phone in the last 2 months (warranty program keeps sending me replacements) and it shut down for the first time this morning. All 3 have developed the same problem, the phone will shut down spontaneously and the only way to start it up again is a soft reset (Volume down + Power for 15 seconds). I have had a total of 10-15 shutdowns between the 3 phones and this is a conservative estimate.
I am thinking that this has to be a setting or an app that I use (and few others do) that is causing the shutdown since I have only seen a few other similar issues in the forums. Here are some of the basic facts about my situation and some of the actions I have taken:
- I have wiped the phones repeatedly (3 phones wiped a total of 3 or 4 times not including the initial setup of the replacement phones, which is getting really old--really fast).
- I have tried turning off NFC, but that obviously wasn't the issue because NFC was off this morning when it shut off.
- I have tried trimming the screen protector/screen guard I installed as suggested in one of the other forums even though that seemed ridiculous (I think that was a different model phone too, but I gave it a shot)
-I have not noticed any common occurrence such as
--when a certain app is running
--when it is on/off charger,
-- When the battery is full or low (it was 24% this morning).
-I have 2 chargers, 3... Read more

Every time I turn off my phone (aka need some piece and quiet w/o turning on silent) , the phone turns back in within 3 or so minutes. It even turns back on while charging.

So your phone is turning back on even when it is not plugged in to anything? I know all windows phones will not allow you to keep the phone off if it is plugged in to charge but I have never experienced it doing that any other time.

I'm in the UK, and yeah, apparently the windows phone 8.1 update was meant to have started rolling out from the 24th June. I've got a Nokia Lumia 520, I'm with EE, and my phone hasn't updated yet. Have been tempted to sign on with the developer preview thing but haven't been sure about whether it was worth the risk.
Any help or answers to why I haven't received the update? Cheers!

Answer:My Nokia Lumia 520 hasn't updated to Windows Phone 8.1

Simples... the support lifecycle for WP8.1 started on the 24th of June. Release of the update itself is in the hands of the networks. While you can get 8.1 via the Preview, you won't get the firmware and stuff that comes with the Cyan update until it's released. Cyan also includes 8.1 so if you're not on the Preview you will get 8.1 as well - Preview people will only get the firmware side of the update that enables various cool features in the new OS.

If so it says you can save it to SD card and that it's M4A which means you can play it on other devices or computers.
I'm going to assume you were saving your files there as you own a 625. If that's the case you should be able to access them via a PC.
There's nothing to suggest this app is no longer available so there's something wrong with your phone. Have you tried a soft reset? (doesn't erase anything)
Soft reset -> volume down and power together. Wait for phone to vibrate. Stop holding and phone will restart.
If that doesn't help you have other issues.

Alternatively you can connect your phone to a PC/Laptop via usb -> navigate to the folder and delete them that way.

I was just listening to my music using Nokia Mix Radio when I noticed that the song I was playing sounded different to how it usually sounds. I actually converted this song from YouTube on my PC and copied it onto my phone (my bad!) so I don't understand how the phone just managed to change it. I came to the end of the song when I suddenly heard cheering? I'm so confused! I have played this song on my phone for ages and this has never happened before. I opened Xbox Music and played the song there to see if Nokia Mix Radio was the problem but the same thing happened there; I heard cheering at the end of the song as if I'd converted a live performance of the song and put it onto my phone... Which I definitely did not! I think it has something to do with the update to 8.1 but I'm not entirely sure. Anyone know what's happened here?

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?

I already happened several times, but today's "update" finally did it. The phone is rolling in a loop, settings wheels, then some progress, then battery empty sign then battery sign with a question mark (note that the battery was full!).
Tried the following:
1) Hard reset using key combo - DID NOT WORK
2) Windows Device Recovery Tool - DID NOT FIND THE PHONE, COULD NOT CONNECT TO IT
The phone keep rebooting in a loop which never stops. None of the methods above worked. The phone is finally dead.
As much as I love Windows Phone, more I hate Microsoft now. In fact, these rubbish builds have been killing my phone, but now finally I cannot recover it any more.
So dear Microsoft, I'm ready to sue you. That's the least I can do. About the rest I will talk to my lawyer. See you soon!

Had the same problem but finally it's working after turning off McAfee's On-Access Scanner, which scans everything you plug into the computer, and by installing Nokia Care Suite, which installs the "Fuse service" that is used to communicate with the nokia phone via usb. I also installed Lumia Software Recovery even though Microsoft has taken it down (googling can find 3rd party links) but it failed to retrieve information from the server but suddenly Windows Phone Recovery could identify my phone and even made it past the "Reading information from the phone" screen that I had also been stuck on :) I'm downloading the files to downgrade right now so hopefully my phone doesn't brick in the next critical steps.
tl&dr: I turned off McAfee's scanner, installed Nokia Care Suite + Lumia Software Recovery (which doesn't do anything but installs some critical files i think), and suddenly my phone could communicate with my computer again. Windows Phone recovery can now do its job.

Answer:nokia lumia 800 charging problems

Their repairs should come with a warranty of at least 30 days. Could have been a defective battery they put in the device. Try plugging it in for a couple minutes, while plugged in, hold the power button in for about 15 seconds or until you feel it vibrate. If it does not vibrate or turn on (assuming you've tried multiple chargers) then it is more than likely defective and they should fix it again no extra cost.

Answer:Nokia lumia 520 turned off and not charging

You may have run the battery flat.
That puts the chip inside the battery into a "coma." Leave it plugged in for a few hours and don't interrupt the cycle by pushing buttons or disconnecting the charger. It will "wake up" and show about 3-5% and then start charging normally. Let it charge to 100% before disconnecting from charger and then resume normal operations.

When your battery goes to 0% it puts the chip in the battery into a "coma."
Use only the Factory Charger (if you can) and don't push any buttons, just leave it charging. It will take several hours for the battery to "wake up" and when it does the phone will boot and start charging normally after that. Leave it on the charger until it gets to 100%.

I changed the digitizer as it broke and after doing so I had slightly damaged the power/volume camera button strip, so there was a little problem as the on/off button stopped working this was fine initially as it powered up once plugged in, so all fine then about 30 minutes later it was off and very hot at the top/back of the phone and would not power up when plugged in i decided as it was becoming hot to detach the internal battery, on closer inspection I had noticed the on off button strip thing had broke completely so I ordered a new part and replaced etc but the same problem exists

I am using Nokia Lumia 730 for over two weeks now. Usually when the phone is switched off, and charger is plugged in, the phone will be charged in switch off mode. But this phone, even when we switch off the phone and try to charge it, the phone is starting again automatically. So is there no option available to charge a phone in switch off mode?

Answer:Nokia Lumia 739 charging in switch-off mode.

All Lumia's since the older WP7.x devices only charge when the device is on. If you try to charge them with power off, they boot up. That's because the Windows Phone operating system manages the battery itself. Some older devices don't do it like that, and neither do some Androids. It may seem strange, but the WP way of handling it is MUCH better for many reasons.

Originally Posted by Windows Central Question I've already bought a new recommended data /charging cable thinking that would solve it but it hasn't? I've also tried the soft reset which worked for the freezing problems and my time and dates are messing up again now there's no battery for it to come back on .. Soft reset includes resetting the date and time, so that is normal.
For your charging issue. Is your phone really not charging or won't it just power up? The phone needs a minimum charge for it to power up, so when the battery gets fully drained (especially immediately after a few restarts/resets) it is expected that the phone won't start up. Just leave it plugged in to a charger for around 30 minutes and try to power it up again.
If this still doesn't work, then the battery might have been damaged especially if it has been drained completely repeatedly. In this case, the battery needs to be replaced.
