    Hi All,

    My UK 1020 (8.1) will not turn on. Has not been dropped or anything, just the next time I came to use it the screen was off.
    I thought that maybe the battery was dead, as the battery life is shocking since 8.1, however it had not long been charged.

    Have tried soft reset, hard reset and even disconnect/reconnected the battery (replaced the screen a while back so have done it before).

    I have just attempted using the Nokia Software Recovery Tool, however I get the error 'Phone is not supported' 'The selected phone is not supported by Nokia Software Recovery Tool'.

    Not sure if this is because of the dev 8.1 version?
    I even tried both the UK and US version of the Recovery Tool as the phone is of course set to US currently.

    Any help or advise would be appreciated
    Thanks

    Try the Software Updater for Retail. It'll revert you to 8, if it works, but it's worth a shot.

    Thanks for the suggestion...
    I thought it was working at first but it effectively times out and requests that you hold down power & vol down until the phone vibrates/reboots. Unfortunately that never happens.

    I did notice however that whilst holding down the soft reset buttons when requested, windows acknowledges the phone connecting/disconnecting by the usual noises it makes. Makes me think the phone isn't completely ruined.
    I did think it may just be the screen that's gone, but as there is no vibrate I would have thought it rules that out...

    Hey mate,

    Have you been successful restoring your Lumia 1020? I'm with the same problem as you and honestly, I'm almost giving up on trying to fix it.

    I was either running 8.1 and once I've tried to reset the phone and install the 8.0, it's bricked.

    I'm really thinking about taking it to the warranty centre.

    Cheers!

    Windows or Mac? I restored mine last Thursday from dev preview to try and fix a battery drain.

    Guys, same problem with my 1020.
    It started recovering, the usb driver showed it as "NOKIA FLASH" or something. Now the usb driver shows "QHSUSB_DLOAD" and the Nokia tool say "Phone is not supported"

    Anybody, please?

    EDIT: Sent it to Nokia Care and they just fixed my phone! It's working! (They changed the chipset...)

    Okay, I was trying to roll back my L1020 from DP8.1 to 8.0 by Nokia Software Recovery Tool 1.4.3, and I got this message "Yo can install software version 3051.40000.1346.0001 to your phone". But the phone displayed is Nokia Lumia 909, Type RM0877.
    Since my 1020 was not correctly recognized, I did not proceed.

    If cyan doesn't bring anything new to DP8.1, I just stay with DP8.1, but nevertheless Software Recovery Tool should work and recognize the phone correctly for other events like bricked. This isn't good.


    EDIT: Okay, so I searched this forum, and found that L1020 is actually Lumia 909.
    I wonder if I can proceed with the Recovery Tool or not.

    EDIT2: The recovery tool 1.4.3 actually worked fine. Showing my model as "Lumia 909" was just confusing. The software should have some ability to display common name, instead of inherited code name or something.

    The model name has always been "Nokia 909" as showed in Settings -> About
    Lumia 1020 is the successor of the 41mpx Nokia 808 PureView (with Symbian OS)
    But I understand your confusing :)

    I seem to be going through the same thing with my 925. Seeing as the program registers it well enough to say it's not supported, I'm holding out for an update that (hopefully) should restore 8.1 devices with the Cyan update. (assuming that's where the problem is)

    Hi,
    I reached out to Nokia and while they tried to help out, ultimately the problem lies in the fact that my phone is dev-unlocked and as such lacks support from them. While I understand that going in, I knew I'd be voiding my warranty, I think it's bit ironic that they wouldn't support the efforts of their (new) parent company. So, until such a time that Microsoft intervenes, we have some pretty paperweights. I'll try my local Nokia store and get back to you though.

    hello guys...

    my friend's lumia 520 recently dead and seemed to be bricked because it wont launch the WP, instead showed "Error: unable to find a bootable option. press any key to shut down" for no reason.

    ive tried to use the Nokia Recovery Tools but after finished downloading it said it didnt support the phone. i haven't tried to use the NSU but i'm not betting much on it :(

    and if i bring it to Nokia Care, will it charge me for a fee? because my friend got her phone from Microsoft Student Ambassador Program for free and didn't get a receipt for warranty claim.

    UPDATE: i've tried using Nokia Software Updater for Retail but it still failed updating. i've tried using different USB ports, different USB cable. turning off firewall and anti-virus, none of them works. :(

    I have tried Nokia Software Update for Retails 4.3.2. It says it has supports for cyan phone. But all my attempts are going in vain. After downloading a 1.5 GB package it says it does not support my phone!!! and cannot install the package.

    Every site I visit all I can see is Microsoft doesn't really have a solution except replacing the motherboard. Without the phone being under warranty that would cost at least 3000INR !!!

    Had it been a android phone I could have already fixed it. Already regretting the decision of buying a Microsoft phone.
