Found 9th Feb 2011
My spare phone which I received yesterday from 'rhubex' and it doesn't seem to turn on, it has been on charge all night and is still on charge.


So my question is:
Has this happened to anyone, if so is there any way round it/ a solution?

Regards, Farhad.

Yeah, just take battery out and give battery contacts and phone contacts a blow out. May not work, but worth a go for the few seconds it will take

I obviously did that.

mumbojumbo

When you was charging it, are you sure the plug socket switch was turned to "on"? (_;)
Yes, obvo it was turned 'on' from the mains.



Then in my expert opinion... Its cream crackered.
When you was charging it, did it indicate on screen that it was charging?
Nope
In that case, it may well be the charger, borrow another Nokia charger (extremely common) and see if that works.
