Eseries / Communicators :: E7 Lock Key Switch Does Not Work
Oct 9, 2011
Lock key stopped working during some update today. I installed the phone from scratch and installed anna over previous os.At sometime on the process lock key stopped working. It does not work neither as led torch switch.I have found no place to change this key behaviour.
Yesterday I wanted to unlock the phone and unlock switch literally jumped out. It doesn't seem to be damaged in any way. I tried to put it back without any sucess. Phone is still under warranty, but since I use it alot and according to my previous experience with nokia service in my country, it can take up to two or three weeks, if and how could I put the switch back myself?
Just bought the nokia E7. Well had little problems with it but have been solving them bit by bit.The problem that I haven't solved yet is that when locking the phone and creating the password to unlock it, it doesn't seem to work.
I touch the power button to lock and it locks. A screen with number appears so that I can put the password and selecting any number or even pressing cancel unlocks the phone.
So of course there's switch mode from work and "play". I have this issue where when I switch from one the theme changes and if I switch back the theme doesn't change. I thought this would be fix, but I guess I was the only one with this issue. Just updated to .54. I'm of course not going to do anything about it I'll just work with it. Seeing that nothing else is wrong with my phone but that. Which is GOOD. Anyway wanted to see if and one else has this issue. I've had this issue since .52 didn't have it before that.My N8 as current Green running Xeon^4 3.2.1My E72 as backup 1 WhiteMy E63 as backup 2 BLUE (Where's my Icon...?) and..[URL] with the popup notes Nokia sheesh I don't need help from you :/I run Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit/Ubuntu 11.10 64bit on my HP Dv6 1030us (DiViUs)Windows 7 64 bit Pro on my Desktop (Giniro)Green Nokia N8 Current Phone running Xeon^4 3.2.1
I took my Nokia E5-00 to unlock it.The display showed the normal screen you see, when the phone is locked.However there was a big black square right in the middle of the screen AND the phone wasn't reacting to inputs.It did not look like a failure of the display itself.Therefore I believed it might be a problem with the OS.Trying to solve it I removed the battery and installed it again a few minutes later.Since then I was not able to switch the phone on any more. It is just doing nothing. Pressing the on/off - button, loading the battery, connecting it to a pc, checking the SIM and SD-card do not make the phone show ANY live sign.Even my PC (Windows 7, connected via USB 2.0 ) does not react to the E5-00 any more.
When the left shortcut key is pressed long the message reader starts reading my mail. I don't want this because sometimes the button gets pressed just because my phone is in a rather tight pocket and my pants starts talking (reading the mail). When my keyboard is locked, it should lock all keys, including this shortcut key.
after update 081.004 torch light doesn't on but the flash light is working.before update i use to switch on by pressing space key, or it has been removed to other way.i tried all way to on but doesn't..
every time I plug the USB battery charger (nokia standard model), or when I connect E52 to my PC the phone goes in locked state and ask for the security/lock code to unlock it.I know it because it's the default 12345 and after pressing OK the phone continues to work, but if I disconnect USB and connect it again, it goes again to clocked state (like doing it with the power button). firmware is 71.004I have this problem sice some months, but I'm not sure when it started ... may be the last firmware upgrade ? Or the last reset of the phone ....
My E52 has proble. After enanled function phone auto lock period 30 mins, I could not disable it. When i goto phone autolock period, change, select NONE, then it appeared error: phone unable to unlock.
I tried factory reset and reinstall software but still can not change. I have to enter lock code after every 30 mins phone unuse.
Is there a way to lock the E7 screen lock without screensaver or black screen? With the almost over-sensitive touch screen interface there is a constant danger of hitting a function by accident, therefore one must have the screen locked at all times. However, it would be important to see the home screen or the running application. I need to see the screen, with or without backlight, not a clock display or blank screen. With S60 this was no problem, that's why I have an E72 for backup and SSH use. The E7 would be a better phone for this, if only it would show the contents of the screen while being screenlocked.
On my E52 I have phone lock which activates automatically in 10 minutes. The problem is that the phone lock code expires for every 24 hours.It is really annoying to enter old phone lock code, new phone lock code and finally confirm the new lock code every 24 hours. I think it maybe has something to do with the security issues in Microsoft exhange.
How can I turn off the keyboard lock function? If I don't want it to auto lock after 5 mins but stay active, can I turn the auto lock off completely? I've checked Control Panel - Settings - General - Security - Phone and SIM Card and there appears to the the option, but when you try and select 'off' it doesn't allow you to turn it off...
