I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

On the current Redstone build, it's virtually a tie. I was getting two days between charges on my 640 XL running 8.1. 14393.5 will give you two days charge as well.

No idea what has caused this. All battery apps give the same wrong estimate of time remaining. Over 6 days when it should be something like 1 Day xHours. The battery discharge rate seems to behave as normal percentage wise.
I've just updated it to Windows 10.0.14393.321 - still the same.
I've done a soft reset (power + volume down button) - still the same.
What else can I do? Is the OS dumb? Is the battery screwed?
The phone is under a month old.
p.s the battery gets quite hot under any semi intensive load but this seems to be a very common trait of the phone.

So I've updated my Lumia Icon to Win10 a couple weeks ago and it worked quite fine.
Today I've found my phone at 17% battery charge. Plugged it in and forgot about it for a while. Couple hours after - 12%! Went to the battery saver setting and saw (plugged in, not charging) message next to the battery charge percentage.
Replaced the battery - same problem. Computer sees the data from phone as usual. Tried a different USB cable - same story. Tried to charge it with a wireless charger that worked just fine for me recently - same issue. Did a regular restart, and a couple of soft resets - nothing changed. Not sure what else I can do now. Don't want to do hard reset until it's the absolutely last chance.
Any ideas guys?

1. I would not recommend make the switch but it sounds like you're keeping your iPhone around which should be fine.
I would spend even less on Windows though given MS's disinterest, maybe a nice Lumia 640 will work.
2. Depending on where your contacts are stored, you should be able to sync them with Windows Phone. (whether by Gmail, Outlook or iCloud, those can be added to W10M.)

Welcome to the forum sukle.

Can't really help with your problem but a few ideas while you wait for one of the experts to come along and help.

Is your phone completely up to date ? Do you have the 8.1 update on your phone ?

I only have the Lumia 520, I have no problems with this on my 8.1 Update 1 Asus Notebook, I've just plugged it in so of course it's charging, usually charge through the mains adapter so very rarely plug it into the computer as everything can be done from the phone.

Sorry I can't help but I'm sure someone will be along soon to help you out.

When I hold down the power button as per the reset instructions, the phone takes about 20 seconds to turn off. It reboots to the square icon. The instructions then say to hold down the volume down button, but after 2 minutes it has not responded.
Is there a way to force it to reset without having to have a working operating system on it? How do I force it to install windows 8.1 again?

Is there a way to force it to reset without having to have a working operating system on it? How do I force it to install windows 8.1 again? There's the hard reset key sequence:
1 - unplug phone
2 - hold vol up and simultaneously plug charger
3 - keep holding until a ! mark appears
4 - leave button and follw the sequence one key once:
vol up, vol down, power, vol down
5 - gears should appear, you phone should replace last downlaoded build
If doens't work, plug your phone to a pc and use WDRT.
holding power button is soft reset, and is useless now. For all the rest, keep in touch and join forum, we can help you

I have surfed, but didn't get any solutions or cautions for that issues. I have enough internal memory in my mobile, i thought there won't be the issue cause. Can anyone help me?

Sometimes apps crash.. Just restart your phone it'll work fine.

All my other devices are connecting to the wi-fi network, but whenever I try to connect after the upgrade it says your phone cannot connect to the wi-fi network. I have tried restarting the phone and the router, also deleted the network and tried to connect it. I have tried to change the MAC filter address of my router. Please help, I am in a big trouble. Is there any solution? Or the only solution is to revert to windows 8.1?

I already happened several times, but today's "update" finally did it. The phone is rolling in a loop, settings wheels, then some progress, then battery empty sign then battery sign with a question mark (note that the battery was full!).
Tried the following:
1) Hard reset using key combo - DID NOT WORK
2) Windows Device Recovery Tool - DID NOT FIND THE PHONE, COULD NOT CONNECT TO IT
The phone keep rebooting in a loop which never stops. None of the methods above worked. The phone is finally dead.
As much as I love Windows Phone, more I hate Microsoft now. In fact, these rubbish builds have been killing my phone, but now finally I cannot recover it any more.
So dear Microsoft, I'm ready to sue you. That's the least I can do. About the rest I will talk to my lawyer. See you soon!

I recently updated my Lumia 1520 to the official w10 version. But as soon as I did that my battery life has been so short that it does not last three hours. Sometimes it can go off even when the phone is saying there is 80 percent power. Then when charging, it can go from 40 to hundred percent just like that. I have tried to hard reset it twice, but that has not been effective. I also did the battery callibration thing, but my phone still eads powere percentage wrongly. My 8.1 was working flawlessly before.
Is it a microsoft thing, or something is wrong with my phone? I have to say I do like the w10 update,but this issue with the battery is killing me

Hi there. Which flavour of W10M are you running? Did you just do the standard upgrade from 8.1? The advice of many others, and the standard reply would be to do a hard reset. This will allow the software a clean slate for installation, and eliminate any incompatible elements left by 8.1. It is an unfortunate fact that this is common place.
If you are up for it, go to settings > About > reset your phone. The other advice often given is not to restore from a back up. Any apps you have will be in store, and emails and texts, should be restored when you sign in. You could restore from a back up and see how it goes, but any issues will have your resetting again.
Hope that helps, and why not join the forums? There is a dedicated thread for the 1520, and plenty of info regarding updates etc. Unless you are brave, stick with the release software as it's pretty stable, and the 1520 absolutely rocks on it. If you think 8.1 was visually good on 8.1, just wait until you get 10 running properly!

My Lumia 950 will not charge or be recognized by the pc until I restart. I have done a Hard Reset (turn device off and on with volume down, followed by volume up, down, power, volume down again) and Windows Device Recovery. My last attempt restoring my Lumia 950 was installing the latest Release Preview of the insider program. I was not installing any insider updates before.
The battery drain is quite consistent. If everything is turned off (wifi, bluetooth, glance, cellular data, no apps open in background) it almost uses the same amount as using the device, roughly 10% drain per hour.
Any advise what to do?

I have two Lumia's: 925 and 625.
Since we try to have as less radiation as possible (if possible at all, but I don't want to go into that discussion) around the house we switch our phones to airplane mode as much as possible. Off course also at nights.
Now, I discovered with a special measuring device, which is able to measure all kinds off radiation) that these lumia's frequently send a signal even when it is on airplane mode (with Wifi, NFC, BT off). The strangest thing is even that this is NOT occurring when the phone is normally on, but only when the lock-screen is active. (with or without Glance where applicable)
I notice a peek in send-signal every 5 seconds. I tried playing around with several settings but the devices keep doing this..
Is anybody familiar with this?

Please give the call recording feature on my Lumia 535 by update or application. just please give this important feature. That's just one think is missed in anniversary windows 10 update. I was thought that feature is also going to be include in update but their is not provided that's very worst think. I hope you will try to give this feature in upcoming next update. Just let me know is this feature is coming or not?

A:when the call recording feature is given in lumia update(e.g.lumia 535)?

Welcome to Windows Central! We are a Windows products fan site and not an official Microsoft website so any complaints or ideas you post here will not reach Microsoft.
You have a Lumia 535 so the chances of getting the call recording feature are slim. According to the latest news, only phones that shipped with Windows 10 Mobile preinstalled (so in other words; when you booted up the phone it started with a version of windows 10) will get that feature.
All other phones (those that came with windows 8 or 8.1) will probably not see this feature. It also depends on hardware according to Microsoft.

When it boots it will advise that no SIM is in and you can dismiss the message, then use it on WiFi or without data connection all you want. No unlock code is needed for SIMless use.
IMHO, it is still a great toy to have. It basically is the same as the 520 inside. You may like this old thread: Project: Five2Oh

A:Mobile Hotspot on Lumia 640 with Cricket $70 unlimited plan?

Insider Preview doesn't do anything to unlock the restricted tethering option. W10M/WP check with the carrier to see if your IMEI is authorized to use tethering. I've been poking in the registry to see if I can disable this, but I've had no luck thus far.
I'm on: L640, W10M Fast, Cricket.
If you want to tether without anyone bothering you, FireFoxOS.
