If you are an old school Nokia fan, you have probably heard about the three-hand-salute. You basically did this if your Nokia wouldn’t boot up, or if it failed booting up. I remember doing this three hand salute hard reset on several of my Nokias, it always got me out of problematic situations. Well, if your Nokia Lumia 800 is not turning on or fails to boot up, you can try performing a button hard reset on your Lumia 800. It will erase everything, but it will hopefully save the phone. Here’s how to do it:
- The phone should be off. Hold in this order and at the same time: the volume down, camera, and power buttons.
- Keep holding the keys for another 5 seconds after you get some kind of response
- You are done, hopefully your Lumia is booting up by now.
