Nokia :: 5530 Slows Down And Apps Stop Working / Start Working After Restart
Jun 5, 2010
Im using nokia 5530 and usually it goes slow and some of its apps stop working like music player hangs but remain playing. it slows down while sending or receiving messages even when messages are in outbox. Its RAM remains 80mb full even when no application running only 40-45mb is available. Sometimes its headphones' player buttons stop working and start working after restart.
I can't download the iOS software update on my 3G. it starats the download and then starts to prepare the update but then says an error has occurred with update and has the option to closse or click on settings and when i click on the settings it goes right back to the original screen of the download and install screen. I have tried to download this update numerous times now
Info: iPhone 3G, iOS 5.1, help downloading iOS update
I've been using the Wifi on my 5530 since I got it in December and it's worked fine, but today, although it says that I am connected to my Wifi connection, it won't let me go onto the Internet. It says:"No gateway reply" I've tried with many different website URLs but its the same.
I have a BB 8900 on v.5 on Rogers (in Ontario) with no data plan. When I do a battery pull, when the phone first comes on, it says EDGE at the top and apps such as twitter, sirius sat radio, and bb app world all work fine for about an hour. Eventually, the EDGE changes to edge (as I believe it should, since I have no data plan) and these apps stop working- well they work, but won't connect. The browser still works fine. Data services set to on, roaming off, connection=wifi preferred. Is this to be expected since I don't have data? I don't remember having this problem before I upgraded to v5...
this browser is said to be good at Internet videos on the symbian phones. well i got my hands on it.... and was disappointed! yes, the actual Internet looks great, but it lags very much. it's like, i have to wait for about 30 seconds for the video to pause after i press the pause button. it seems the video area is almost non responsive and the video itself lags.is this normal or am i missing something?
Everytime I connect my Itouch 4 into the computer, my apps stop working. Neither of em' load. I have to Re-download them in order to work. This has never happened to me before, it just recently started occurring.
I accidently dropped my 5530XM, which was in an ipod sock, from about 1 metre high onto my wooden floorboards. I found that the volume button suddenly stopped working. When i turned it off an on again it worked!So, im wondering if this is a phone problem or software problem? because ive only had it for 2/3 weeks and i dont wana be stuck with a faulty phone!
1. My 5530 camera isn't working. Whenever i click it, it runs and when i open the tast manager, it is running but it never opens up..
2. My phone memory is full, and 70mb of data is in the 'other' category, when i checked via. the memory details facility. I updated my phone's firmware, so does that have anything to do with is :S . How do i free the data?
I have this 5530 and just noticed some problems with the software.. i dont know i it is a problem or what..
Phonebook - You can save a same number to a new or existing contact. With my old nokia phones, when you try to save a number that is already in your phonebook, it will prompt you if you would like to either continue or update the number... but with the phonebook for the 5530, it doesnt prompt the user.
Logs- i chose to keep the logs for the last 30 days but when i open my logs, it only shows the logs for aroung past 10 days.. i tried waiting for few hours for the information to load up but still it cannot go farther than 10 days.
Real Player- i transferred video files from my PC to my fone.. when i tried to play it on the phone, it says file not supported.. i checked the file format and it seems that the format is listed on the compatible formats for real player.
i already updated the software of my fone but still the same problem
after i updated my nokia 500 to belle,it has stop working after i start.touchscreen works for some seconds then it stops and no keys are working as well.i have to take battery out to restart but again same problem.
I come with an interesting problem regarding my N73. It is a bit long. Here is a bit of back story:
I have(or had) two Nokia N73 one was a North American model and the other from Japan (called Softbank 705NK). About 2 weeks ago, I gave the North American one to my brother because he was without working phone. Last Thursday the battery in that phone took a dump and needed to be replaced. He turned the phone off to go into a meeting and when he went to turn it back on it would not turn on(It had a full charge on it when shut off). Putting it on a charger did not work. I tried charging the phone up with the other Nokia charger I had and it did not work. Then I tested the battery by putting it into the Japan Market N73 and the battery still did not work. I then put the JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) N73’s battery into his phone and the phone turned on. I also checked both chargers on this phone and both worked on his phone with the JDM N73’s battery. I concluded his battery was dead and gave him my battery and promptly ordered a new battery from Nokia for the JDM N73. (I was not using it anyway at that time)
Here is where it gets interesting, on this past Saturday I decided to try the “dead” N73 battery one last time before I tossed it out and I put it in the JDM N73 and it worked and it charged and performed well under heavy use (i.e. picture taking and surfing the web). Today I put it down and it shuts off (with a full battery). I figure I must have pushed the off button on it and turn it back on. All is well until I slide the camera cover open and it shuts off again. I turn it on a third time and tap the left side (the non side button side) absent minded while pondering something and it turns off a third time. So this time I power it up and tap the spot above the IRDA (on the side without side buttons) and sure enough it shut off. I duplicated this a third time with the same results. I then took the battery cover off and discovered the battery does have some side to side play but looks secure. I was able to get it to shut off with a really hard wiggle but it does not seem to break contact under normal duress.
The shutting off when opening the camera lens cover and the tapping of the side of the phone lead me to think it is a lose battery. This phone never gave me an ounce of trouble with the original OEM battery that came with it and likewise the North American N73 never gave me trouble with the battery(until it died). So why did it start now? Would a battery that is on its last legs be more susceptible to vibration/movement? I will be trying it with the new OEM battery arriving from Nokia (should arrive ether Mon or Tues) to see. Should it turn out to be a loose battery, how does one fix it? Would wrapping a strand or two of electrical tape around the sides of the battery to thicken out the battery fix it or will the old paper on top of the battery help?
So the update is available for the UK phones and I updated my 5530 to the v.20 firmware. Unlike what most users say that the phone is faster, I dont really find that to be the case. When I startup, it takes awhile longer. Sometimes the wallpaper appears and then disappears and then reappears again with the contacts bar and everything. The problem really seems to be the home screen. Every time I go back to the home screen or click on menu, theres a black line in the center, a flash n nothing happens or a flash n it works. Sometimes, the flash is not there and the menu just opens up. I dont really know how to explain that, but I hope uve got an idea of what i'm saying. I'm wondering if I should soft reset.
I got a new phone (Nokia 2630) a few months ago. About 4 weeks the menu button stop working. When I push it the menu doesn't open but if I use the navigation keys to open, for example the Camera, when I push the menu button, the menu button works to take the picture.I didn't made any moditications into hardware e/or firmware on the phone.I don't want to take it to Nokia Care now.
I was downloading applications on my phone and during the process it would stop working. I closed out of the Ovi store and now it will not even open. I click on the Ovi store app button and it pops up the symbol(Nokia Ovi) and sits there for eternity. I have reset the phone 3 times and to no avail, it continues. I have uninstalled the application 4-5 times and even tried to download the earlier version. I still can't get into the Ovi store.
I am not sure what happened. I contacted Nokia and they say that my phone doesnt support the Ovi store. My question is HOW was i downloading apps for a week and all of a sudden it just doesnt work. Why would ONE phone not be supported by nokia when clearly on the box, in the instructions, etc., it states that the Ovi store is accessable? I have had this phone for a week and a half and it already has these problems? What kind of smart phone CANT support or download applications, themes, and games.
My 5530 Xpress Music does not start anymore, It just hangs when i start it .Just shows as White screen with Blue Nokia Logo on it. and does not go on and continue booting.Tried removing the battery,sim, etc
How can I stop some Apps from loading automatically into memory. I do use Task Killer App, but few seconds after I kill the running apps, they load again. I don't want to uninstall the apps becuase I do use them sometimes, but I don't want them fill precious memory, that slows down my phone tremendously.
when i get connected through WiFi , the only app working is the browser and the reset of the applications not working , and after restarting the blackberry phone every thing working fine for just 24 hours then it come back down again and i need to restart again
I'm not sure whether this is a 9700 problem or a problem with Orange (UK) but it seems that every time I restart my BlackBerry, be it a battery pull or a restart from removing an app, my phone loses the ability to connect to UMA ("ISP or wireless network error"). The first time this happened I rang Orange and got them to reset my service and this seemed to do the trick since shortly after my UMA connected again.After installing and then removing App World and restarting my BlackBerry, it's gone again. Obviously I can't ring Orange support at all hours of the day and every time this happens.
Has anyone else had this problem? I'm totally stumped on this one..My Bold is running OS 188.8.131.521 (The latest version on Orange)I've tried numerous battery pulls, resetting the router, wiped my handset, re-sent service books, all the usual stuff.The wifi icon is white and NOT greyed out. All other wifi features are working except UMA.
My iPhone 4 has turned off, which seems to be a common problem. Everything I can find says to hold the power/lock screen button + the home button together, along with a combination of plugging it into the computer/ wall, etc. Unfortunately my power button stopped working ages ago (another common problem it seems), so that method of restarting my phone is out. Aside from the power button issue the phone is in pristine condition, the LCI's are normal, no scratches or cracks. I'm not in a place where I can easily obtain another phone and need it for work purposes,
All of the apps made by Ovi are not working on my Nokia 700. I received the phone earlier today, and all was fine until a few hours ago when the Maps Suite, Social, Store, Ovi Music, etc stopped working (the loading wheel spins for 0-2 seconds and then goes back to the previous screen). I have tried installing various versions of each app, performed a hard reset and I am on the latest firmware.
I'm having a bad experience over here cause I cant use or Uninstall ANY java app on My nokia 5530."Internal Error:Sending stop app request to JavaCaptain Failed".I have been trying all to solve this but I cant.
My camera and camcorder don't work, I take a photo with the camera and it does all the right things but does not save the image, the camcorder pushes you out of the camcorder screen when you push the record button and back to the home screen, I have tried to clear the Cache data under phone settings. If I turn the phone off and on again it works fine for a little bit but I shouldn't have to do this everytime I want to take a photo or movie.
