I was using WP8 developer review and reverted to WP8 in order to install Cyan. Ever since I updated to Cyan, when rebooting the phone, Arabic keyboard is added automatically. Phone is CV GB, set to US region for Cortana with English keyboard.
So I just got out to LA for my 17 day vacation and 2 days in, my 1520 decided to just continuously reboot itself.
I took it to a Microsoft store today and the tech attempted to use the software recovery tool. But he plugged it into a PC so it never got enough power to even boot up to the home screen and he told me there was nothing he could do.
If if I plug it into the wall, it'll boot up to the home screen for about 20 seconds and then just shut off and boot right back up and do the same thing.
Would a hard reset with 2% battery be a bad idea? I really don't want to use my upgrade right now with windows 10 devices right on the horizon.
I was having some issues with my SD CARD (it had to be scanned for errors constantly) so I eventually took it out. About the same time the Phone started to randomly reboot itself over and over until I plugged it in. To be more clear it got stuck in a reboot cycle where it would start to boot and then shut off and then start to boot and then shut off. The only thing I could do to stop it would be to plug it in.
Steps taken: Took out SD Card Factory reset
Carrier: AT&T Windows Phone 8.1 update
When the battery is full or plugged in I can't reproduce the issue, but when it's lower then 60% or so, I can repro the issue by changing between apps or selecting airplane mode and then switching the wifi on. Basic multitasking appears to set it off.
My Lumia 1520 (ATT Version) has had this reboot cycle problem for about a week now. It started a week ago when it was at 2%, died and when I tried to charge it, it started freezing and rebooting and freezing and rebooting. Originally I thought it was a power issue because it always had 2% when it restarted. I got it home to my Nokia original cord plugged into my surface pro charger and charged it and fiddled with it like turning it on airplane mode, deleting unread messages before it restarted, etc. But then recently its been doing it more and its been doing it while at 40%, 12%, etc. Even when its plugged in. It seems to get very hot every time I do this. During all of this, I have Xbox music songs I have pending download. I was going to let those finish over WiFi but it won't let me turn on WiFi. I'm wondering if the 53 pending downloads could be causing this issue but I'm not sure. I'm running the latest dev preview and cyan. I have a ton of apps and music and all that installed on my SD card.
Don't know if it's just me, but occasionally I'll get my Wi-Fi tab (in Action Center and Settings) reporting that networks are "available" but it can't connect to any. Even my own network to which I connect all the time.
I have discovered that after a Reboot everything is back to normal. Wi-Fi connects fine.
I seem to have isolated it to when you leave a premises still connected Wi-Fi and let it drop-off you get this behaviour.
But surely you shouldn't have to turn Wi-Fi off every time you leave a place!!!
I would really love to use the 1520 as a work/personal note-taking device. I already use OneNote extensively. I saw the 1520 at the AT&T store today and fell in love, but the final thing for me to justify a 6" monster would be the keyboard issue.
On my 1520, at times the calendar and messaging app keypad will go to a light color and becomes blurry. Sometime it comes and goes. Sometimes I have to reset it. Sometimes I have to reset it multiple times to make it go away.
Having difficulty with disappearing keyboard when trying to fill in fields like user id and password. The keyboard will appear and disappear in less than a second, making it impossible to key in any text.
At first I thought it was a hardware or screen protector issues, but having tried other applications and UC browser, I did not encounter this phantom phenomenon.
i've bought a chacha but every time that i tried to change my writing language to arabic nothing happend ! but when i changed my phone language to arabic i could switch between english and arabic keyboard by using lng key ! why lng key not working when i changed my phone lang.. to english ! it just typing english !
I have recently purchased Nokia Lumia with Windows mobile 7 and it's installed with English language. I'm wondering if there's somehow or somewhere I can download an Arabic language package to install in my regional settings. I don't want to have an Arabic interface, I just want to be able to read Arabic mails or SMS.
My phone is registered in HK and there's no update yet... Should i wait or flash a new rom. How to flash a new rom?I'm currently downgraded to WP8.. I don't wanna go back to WP8.1 dev preview as well. I hate the lags.
I am transferring music to my 1520 using "Windows phone app for desktop" but roughly only half of my album art shows up. I know that all my album art is embedded and is there so am not sure why this is happening. My other option would be to use another music player which has the option to add art.
I have three Lumia phones, a 920, a 1020, and a 1520. With each I just attach a USB, copy the camera roll files to my PC. With the first two, I open the video mp4 files on the PC and Windows Media player has no problem. Not so with the 1520, with any video file copied to the PC, it says: "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file." Again, the same video file plays fine on the 1520 that shot it.On the PC, Quicktime and Movie Maker choke on video files too. I tried a hard reset of the 1520 but it did nothing.
When listening to the Music app on my 1520 (16 GB ATT) and using my headphones, sometimes the volume will randomly get louder then quieter in a rhythmic motion.
It does not go from 0 to 30, its more like 5 up, then 5 down. The actual numbers of the volume stay the same, but I can definitely tell there is an increase and decrease. I've encountered this a few times from different artists (so it is not a style of the artist). Also, it seems to happen whenever the headphones are accidentally pulled out mid-song. After the song is over, the next song seems to be fine. Is there a work around other than waiting for the next song?
