Preferred Solution: Why is there a red light at the top left of my Microsoft lumia 950xl?

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.)

A: Why is there a red light at the top left of my Microsoft lumia 950xl?

could be because of low battery , connect the phone to a charger and wait for phone to reboot normally.

Microsoft Lumia 950XL repeatedly getting hanged after latest cumulative update. Am i the only one facing this issue ? Does anyone have a solution to this ? This hanging happens every time i unlock the device, more often at lower battery levels, Tried the factory reset once (as suggested by Microsoft India) nothing changes. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I'm just wondering if anyone else is having issues with Spotify on their phones. It started off as not being able to load, so I restarted my phone, then I had to reinstall the app, then it now loads but won't play any tracks I've saved for offline play. Please offer any assistance. I have a Lumia 950xl on the T-mobile network.

I am NOT switching my entire network architecture to DHCP to satisfy Microsoft phone usage. Our network devices are hard assigned EVERY IP address by design to prevent 'easy' access. DHCP is well and good but you cannot dictate corporate network designs by your limited market phone. Please FIX THIS or MS phones will be continue to be persona non grata on our networks. Period.

I believe there is a new firmware for the 950XL which resolves the battery drain issue.
Can someone confirm to me this is true, and where and how i can get this firmware updated to my 950XL.
Also what is the latest firmware for the 950XL?
My current version is 1511
Firmware revision no.01078.00038.16025.39013
Hardware Revision no.4.0.1.1
OS Build 10.0.10586.494
Any advice would be much appreciated. Apart from the battery drain & sometimes gets warm, the phone is ok.
I also have a 640XL which i personally think is flawless, loved this phone until i unfortuntunatey dropped a cup on the screen and shattered it pretty bad.
Hence why i have a 950XL now.

Start witha soft reset (hold power 15 secs), elsewhere best for you is a hard reset for fixing all problems once

Immediately after my 1 year warranty ended my left hinge broke and my system began to overheat.  In regards to the hinge the use has been very light, generally it sits on a desk and stays open, clearly the design is very poor.  The over heating seems to have been building, but its not dust or obstruction, I suspect its the thermal paste, there have been quite a few posts on other sites about this.    Has HP recognized the hinge and overheathing as a design flaw or are they just letting their customers spend money to fix it?  What are my options.

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

I forgot the screen lock password i need to know how i can unlock my microsoft lumina 640

A:How do I unlock my Microsoft Lumia 640 screen lock?

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.
Unless you remember the password it is all you can do.

Hello. I have a Microsoft Lumia 640 XL since March and after a very short time the secondary camera seems to bug me. Every time I am trying to switch between the main one and the secondary it keeps showing me "SOMETHING WENT WRONG". I have even factory reset the phone and nothing good happened. Is there anyone that could help me? Please!

My Microsoft lumia 535 phone now charges very slowly. Also, the Microsoft phone charger that came with it has stopped charging it (the charger is still working fine because i have tested it on other phones). Recently i have been left with no choice but charge it with a samsung ipad charger or i use a USB cord to connect to my desktop or laptop, though not all USB cord is working with it. Also now selective with USB cords.
The problem started after my phone battery completely drained out flat. Since then, charging my phone has been an uphill task.
Pls help. It is affecting my communication as my phone is down most of the time now

Previously used this phone with Zune on my now-deceased PC with Windows XP (although even that took a while to establish). Now have an HP laptop with Windows 7 but Zune consistently refuses to recognize it and just comes up with the usual 'disconnect, turn off and reconnect'. I have downloaded both Microsoft Fixes and neither of them find anything wrong; I have uninstalled/reinstalled countless times; I have been into my certificates and made changes and/or deletions - and I m now simply running out of options ...and patience if I'm honest.

Almost all the internet advice suggests the fix is easy. Would the fact I've worked on this for over a month now suggest I am a one-off?!!!

A Google search revealed that there are many people who have had the same problem still unresolved after two years or so - just as often with other Windows Phones rather than Nokia. Can anyone help please?

Make sure that the file ends in the .pdf format. If it doesn't, it will not open. I would suggest going to File Explorer to try to locate it if you are on Windows 10 Mobile. If you are on Windows Phone 8.1, try connecting your phone to a computer and select to view files using File Explorer.

They do that to direct you to Microsoft Camera. Even if you installed it, it would direct you to it.
