N8 keeps freezing and turning off

the phone worked great in the beginning but then started to freeze and turn off on its own all of a sudden. sometimes it doesn't turn back on for hours and when it does it just repeats the same problem.

Now it started to turn on for an average of 5 minutes then shuts down again. is there anyway to fix this problem? or is it a defected product?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

yeah I'm angry, it shut off and hasn't turned on at all ... this is just disappointing and no one seems to know how to fix this problem either.

why don't you contact the phone supplier? should still be under warranty as it's less than 1 year old..

Hi there,

This is a known issue with the N8. Nokia has accepted that some units have some minor faults in the power section and is ready to replace the device under warranty. Unfortunately you guys are the unlucky ones to have experienced this problem....

Regards,

Roy

I experienced the same thing and I found a solution. It's so simple. Just push power button for ten seconds then push it agin an the device will work properly.

Sometimes this happens after someone has dropped its phone and the pins of the battery widen a bit and so the phone receives less power. A quick solution is to open the phone unscrewing the two screws below , take out the battery and press the pins together (there are 3 on the battery). Insert back the battery and it wark perfectly. Anyway it worked for me. Malta
