My 920 freezes up a few times a week where the screen is black and it's unresponsive. I need to press volume down and power for 10 seconds to make it reboot.
I've seen other people online are having the same issue. I'm still not sure if it's a hardware issue or WP8 issue.
Has anyone been able to solve this issue? Is it only s 920 issue?

hmm if it's an OS issue, how come there have not been any articles written about it on any of the news sites and why is it taking them so long to release a fix. Plus if it is a bug they should let ppl know instead of wondering if they should return the phone or not.
I even contacted Nokia and they said to reset the phone to defaults and if i still had the problem, id have to send it in to get looked at. If it was a software bug they should say so and then i would just wait for the fix. Why would they want to waste their time evaluating my phone.

Get it replaced, but I'm warning u, their refurbished phones r a piece of ****t, I got my 5th Lumia 920 yesterday and vibration rattles and looks like someone was tampering with the SIM card tray hole, and light leaking pretty bad at bottom of screen. I'm furious. Their sending me a 6th phone.and they refuse to give me a brand new one

That stinks. My vibrate rattles too, I just figured it was normal. I may try and get a replacement from the place I bought it from first but it's been over 30 days. Nokia said I need to send it in but then they said I should contact retailer to see what my options are. Other than this issue it's a great phone but it's very annoying as u can't rely on it to wake you up. Plus if you're on call at work and it's locked up while your sleeping, you could be in deep **** with your employer.

OTA is always risky due to unstable connection. The best way to do it is to flash a new copy of OS into the phone, backup before you do it tho. Then test if the problem persist. If yes do another flash with another USB port to make sure it is not another disrupted installation. If is still the same then get a replacement, no other reason than a faulty unit.

Happened to me today for the first time ever as I tried to switch it on from standby. Screen was black but the 3 bottom buttons were light up. Tried to push the power button again and then it freezed completly, had to do a soft reset. This was a few minutes after my HDR photo camera crashed while saving a Photo so I think it has something to do with this because a freezing like this has never happened before...
