    18 hours ago, I reset my 920 by Setting - About - Reset
    All I can see now is the 2 gears
    During that, I've tried to do things such as:
    Restart by holding power button and lower voice control, it did restart, but then back to the gears
    Reset by holding the three buttons .. etc, it did restart, but back to the gears as well

    Btw nothing happens when I plug it into the laptop

    It is definitely not normal. hold vol. down + power keys and soft reset the phone. while you are holding those keys, the phone will vibrate and "nokia" logo is shown. Now, it is very critical, AS SOON AS you see "nokia", do this very quickly;

    press vol. up
    press vol. down
    press power button
    press vol. down again

    press those keys once, like , "click" "click" "click" "click". and your phone will boot as expected, with the blue windows phone screen

    It is back to LIFE, horrrrrrray
    Hey guys, I really appreciate your fast replies
    I did exactly what "kivancio" told me to do, but the respond was : battery drained
    I put it back on the charger then I went out for an hour
    I came back to it and I found it WORKING
    Btw my 920 was full of apps and games
    More than 120 games and more than 140 apps have been installed and uninstalled during the 8 months before the RESET
    The memory was 14GB media, 14GB apps+games
    So, I'm not sure if the reason is "WAITING" more than 20 hours, or because I did what "kivancio" told me
    Anyhow thanks a lot guys, especially you "kivancio"

    Cheers
    kivancio and Muessig like this.
