The friends battery was from a c600 fully charged, still would not switch on.. Its now on the ac charger but no lights nothing, looks like a dead one
Just an update.. The phone started to boot the orange start up screen days later after being left the turn itself off and then nothing for at least 20 mins, then the same, orange start up screen then nothing, kept trying to to a hard reset but could never get it to activate. Left a few days with battery out then tried a hard reset . This time it caught the press zero to continue screen which i did it then went blank and stayed like that for a few minutes doing nothing like a normal reboot..
Finally it said no sim press to continue which i did and it just hung on no sim screen. Getting desperate i did it again with a sim in from a hard reset. This time i got past the valid sim screen and it then said Cold reboot phone restarting which it did.. ( heart Pumping madly) and wahoo
its back to normal..
What happened, corrupt firmware ? who know's. Just one thing when i take battery out it loses date and time is this normal or has the onboard battery died. Don't seem to remember it doing this.
