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.)

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?

I tried to replace them thinking I had done this.
I found that all the pictures were missing for them too.
Never mind put the tiles back.
Then found those contacts had been doubled or even quadrupled and had to link them all to get the messages etc.
Was this an fault of an overnight upgrade or an Outlook [or hotmail or outlook.com or outlook mail or mail or whatever it is] update/upgrade.
Is this going to happen to all my windows phones.

I powered up my Nokia 630 last week which had been inactive for about a year, as I was keeping it as a backup to my 735. All was fine and working but them it offered to install an update, which I accepted and let it roll the wheels on. Now there is a blank grey screen where the tiles page should be. Switching it off and on plus a soft reset doesn't change it. Basically I get my pin number page then empty grey after tapping it in. I can see signal level, battery level etc icons at the top of the screen but nothing else. The phone was working fine prior to the update, I'm assuming this was not a Windows 10 update as the 630 doesn't qualify...?

I am facing a curious problem with my Microsoft Lumia 950XL Windows 10 device.
My OS is Windows 10 Mobile with Build 10.0.14393.321.
Firmware Revision No. is 01078.00053.16236.35013
Hardware Revision No. is 4.0.3.1
Whenever I am on a call and trying to Add Call for Call Conferencing, the screen goes blank when my finger nears the screen.
Same thing also happens when I am trying to press keys in response to Interactive Voice Response Systems during a call.
This stops me providing any inputs to the IVR System as well as adding any other party to the conference call.
Is there a fix already available for this?

Hi there, Nokia Lumia 635 doesn't have a feature to save the Contacts list in a Micro SD card. In the Microsoft Store, I was able to see a few Apps (free) and one of them (sorry, forgot the name) came directly from a Microsoft site but it was not to be
seen in the list of installed apps. Another one found could compile all the contacts in Excel and email out. But I would like to know about one that can save it in a Micro SD, restore it to the Phone when a need arises and much more, if any. So, please advise
if there is a paid/free App that would do this. Mine is W10 upgraded.Thanks.

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.

Hello Kirby,

When you're at a place where you can see your phone's screen, you could use the method in the tutorial below to turn off automatic adjust brightness level, and manually set it to brightness level you would like instead. I like medium.

I have the non xl Lumia 640 and the battery is a beast. If you can do without Zeiss optics I'd give you this 3rd option. Also to my knowledge the 650 cannot capture 1080p video cause of the snapdragon 2** series but I think that the performance deference of the 650 and 640(xl) is not noticeable. Edit: The 650 has an oled screen while the 640xl has ips, judging from my phone if you want a screen visible under the sun the 640 is a no go.

I recently bought a Nokia Lumia 930 and its was working perfectly fine, but I dropped it (on carpet) and now the screen has gone black. The 3 flashing keys (the home button, the arrow button and the search icon) light up but nothing else does. I would love some help with this. Thank you in advance.

A:Why has my Nokia Lumia 930 screen gone black?

Have you tried a soft reset? Hold the Volume up button and the power/lock button until the phone vibrates, this will restart your phone.

OK... Problem from the first time i opened the phone... It has done all the synchronizing and app updating, etc... BUT:
It does not show the "tiles screen" AT ALL!!! It goes straight to the "all apps" screen where it lists them in order alphabetically... wtf???

Glance screen auto off via proximity its not practical and itwill just drain your battery if its always on but you can't see it because of the cover or the phone face down on the surface.

Hi I bought my Lumia XL three months ago from Amazon UK It worked flawlessly and I loved it until three weeks ago when I dropped it and the screen got cracked from the top and bottom I booked a repair on Microsoft device support website and sent it off They charged me for a quot Standard exchange quot When I got the phone back I noticed that the IMEI number was different and looked to be lower than my phone which got broke so I assumed it may be older production restarts 950 Lumia 30 seconds screen? XL my does every on Why glance wise As soon as I set it up it started restarting every Why does my Lumia 950 XL restarts every 30 seconds on glance screen? seconds or so when on the glance screen and ONLY when not connected to the charger So I reset it hard reset it tried to restore from backup and also tried fresh installation but to no avail I also updated to the latest version and that also did not help So I tried to re-book for repair on the same Microsoft site which now showed the current IMEI number for my registered phone and shows the status quot Out of warranty quot My phone was only three months old and they sent me a phone which is now showing as out of warranty I even started a chat with someone on their website who wasn't able to help except giving me Microsoft's number which does not let me contact anyone and says for Microsoft Mobile Device support go on their website and that's it I am really annoyed with Microsoft as I have been using Windows mobile since early days almost - years ago when HTC used to make them but this is the first time I have needed support Can anyone please help me to figure out what is causing my phone to restart when it is on glance screen and only when it is not connected to a charger I have tried disabling the glance screen but problem persists I am thinking it could be the bad battery they have sent me but then again if it was the battery then why doesn't it restart when in use Thanks in advance for any help

You will have to reset your phone and loose whatever data is not backed up.
Power off. Hold Volume Down and tap Power. When the exclamation screen (!) appears release Volume Down.
Now tap Volume Up / Volume Down / Power / Volume Up...
The spinning gears will show and your phone will reset.

I have filed a feedback item for this.

A:I have a Lumia 640 and it won't show lock screen notices, is this a known issue?

Not all apps have this ability currently. The developers have to enable this (afaik)

A:My Nokia lumia 925 is just dead, buged lock screen. Could you help me?

Try a Soft Reset. Hold the Volume Down + Power buttons until the phone vibrates and reboots (about 10 seconds). Soft Reset is a great go-to to solve many types of glitch.
If that does not work then you need to try a Hard Reset:
Hold Volume Down > press Power > keep holding Volume Down until you see the exclamation (!) screen, then immediately release the Volume Down
Now tap Volume Up / Volume Down / Power / Volume Down
You should see the spinning gears and your phone will reflash the last OS version held in recovery. You do loose data, but get your phone back. Sign into your Microsoft Account and restore your backup during the set up.

Hello, so yesterday I had my Lumia on my hands and I just took the case off it and the battery dropped. It happened in the past with no problem. So I put the battery back on and I tried to boot the phone. Since then the phone vibrates, nothing appears on the screen (just black) and after some seconds it vibrates again... and again.
I tried:
- Removing and putting back on the battery
- Hard resetting the phone (It seems that it doesn't even get the signal to hard reset. Just restarting all the time)
- Using the WDRT to flash it but the process fails because before its complete the phone restarts (plus it is not recognized)

As i read in the Microsoft forums, about the similar issue i have come to the conclusion that it is an hardware issue and should not be confused with the software.
i hereby quote 93tid ( Microsoft Forums Community Moderator)
" The 1520 suffers from a lot of screen problems due to lower quality components as a result of cost cutting. In order to eliminate any potential software causes you can first try performing a hard reset from settings > about > reset my phone. If that does not help, go for a full firmware reinstall using the Nokia Software Recovery Tool . If the problem persists, take it to a Nokia Care facility for inspection/repair."
Following his steps you should have a visit to nokia care or the one providing authorized service in your area.

A:Lumia 640 win mobile 10. stuck on low charge screen wont turn on off charger

So one day I reset my phone due to my phone slowing down, and it would not turn on.
For info purposes I have a Lumia 640 updated to win 10 (originally 8.1)
After this I put it on the charger, it would load the Microsoft logo. then go to the charging screen with plug icon.
This is odd due to being at 80℅ of battery before I rebooted. Often it'll sit there with no result, sometimes it'll reboot multiple times.
If I remove the charger the phone instantly turns off. This has been going on for 5 days. Yesterday when I plugged the phone in it went back to tiles, but when I removed the battery to put my sim back in the issue came back. It also showed 72℅ charged so can't be the battery, and I don't know how that happened.
Windows recovery tool can't see the device and when I choose the find option the fix won't get to the phone. When I plug my Lumia via USB it reboots over and over and disconnects over and over as my computer keeps making the USB sound. The only time this doesn't happen is if i hold volume up or down when I plug it, sometimes, and that just freezes it on the ms logo. When I continue from there the phone will reboot as the installation is loading.
The issue is clearly not the battery. As it's 70℅ or so, yet Iget the 0 charge icon and the phone won't turn on outside the charger.
I have no clue what the solution to this problem is.

Lumia randomly restarting, on on a number of debilitating problems with my lumia which is a shame because they are the same problems that made me leave android for the WP platform To start off my phone has been randomly restarting The restarting seems to have started after the anniversary update version There's nothing common between one reset to the next Lumia 950 randomly restarting, sometimes black screen on wake, sometimes no touch on wake. why? just that they become more frequent as battery life reduces starts at around This is also sometimes accompanied by a streak yellow across the screen I don't know if this is relevant or not My second issue which has been happening the longest is that the screen will sometimes be completely off when I wake up the phone I will put the phone into sleep with the power button and when I wake it up with the power button the screen is black I know the phone is awake because windows hello will try to sign me in I have reason to believe that the touch digitizer is also still working This is fixed either by trying to sleep cycle the phone or by holding down the power button until the phone prompts me to power it off This seems to wake the screen up the screen also sometimes wakes up when windows hello signs me in but this is rare This problem has become less frequent since the anniversary update My third problem is that sometimes the touch digitizer doesn't work on wake This is similar to my last problem except that it always goes away by sleep cycling my phone This problem has also become less prominent since the anniversary update Any advice would be greatly appreciated I'm probably going to take my phone to a windows store this weekend to see it they can do anything about it but I'm not hopeful exactly I've had bad experiences with my last windows phone a lumia icon so I'm starting to lose trust with Microsoft

You can replace the screen yourself, it's a bit meticulous and time consuming but it can be done by the avg. user. Or you could have it done at a local PC repair shop, estimated cost is around $150 parts/labor. I would repair it by either means.

Originally Posted by tejanaqkilica Hello everyone. So, the wirdest thing happened to me today, I have a Nokia Lumia 830, been an fast insider since day one, rocking solid Windows 10 Mobile. Few hickups here and there, but nothing major. A week ago I reset the phone using WDRT, (It went back to 8.1). I updated the device using Upgrade Advisor, then settled on the Release Ring. So far so good, for an entire week. Yesterday, the Store wasnt working, so I though maybe is something at Microsoft. Today (after a simple reboot) the store got back at working, but then the phone start rebooting randomly and wasnt turning on. At all, just loop at booting, after I performed two times, hard reset, the phone sims to get back at normal, except there is something wierd with the screen, if you lock it, it loks, you hear the sound, but the screen doest turn off, since this model has an LCD panel, you can tell easily that is still turned on, its frustraiting me and its draining the battery like crazy. Does anyone know a workaround this, or what is causing it? I appriciate the time and effort. Thank you in advance. You made the error of using WDRT instead a hard reset, (a hard reset install again last downloaded build) so now you must restart the update procedure. Are you sure you got back Denim instead Cyan?
Sounds like phone its tryin updating all core apps to 10 version but they are stuck in Store, check list and control.
Warining: STORe app itself must be updated first
Then check sync settings, byt default all videos are synced to OneDrive, disable it!.
Last workaround is getting back 8.1, using Upgrade Advisor for getting last official Win10, letting phone sync and updating via wifi for at least 2 days, and checking store list and settings.
After thatm you can join again insiders.
REMEMBER: every phone needs a couple of days for completing updating after an hard reset, especially older phones like yours
