    since your lock key is not working..so try this,,,
    download NSU(nokia software updater) for retail version 4 or above...and when you connect your lumia to pc..NSU will show a device is connected..then at the bottom..it will say..my device doesnt boot up...click on it..i will donwload the latest lumia black firmware if available for your device and will reinstall the os..

    Hey,

    I had that kind of problem with a Lumia 800 a year ago. You may try a specific key combination which is illustrated here: Nokia Lumia 920 hard reset. I needed a lot (like 25+) of tries, but it worked! No flashing, no fear of bricking the device ;-)

    Good luck,
    Marcel

    If you have set a lock code so that you have to type a number to unlock the phone then that is what the problem is.. The phone does this when the maximum number of attempts to unlock the phone has been done. The only way around this is to either wait the specified number of minutes, or re-flash the phone. I had this problem with my L920 when I forgot the number I was using and entered the wrong number about 10 times (I think).

    I have done every possible thing...
    Have you tried waiting 470535 minutes? I think that might fix it.

    I'm kidding. Since you have the power button issue, I would honestly look at an online teardown guide and take the device apart and try to repair the button. Is that within the realm of possibility for you? Most are concerned with that sort of thing but after watching a few tutorials, you might be able to figure it out...then you can try the other options to reboot. But then again, if you get that far, then you've probably already done enough to solve the issue.
    Also, bborrow a spare phone, and let the battery drain on yours. Indid that for my iPhone when my power button and screen failed. It finally died and when I charged it again it turned on normally.

    (sorry for typos...when I use the wpcentral app I get double letters sometime. Not sure why. I'm editing when I find them but I'm lazy at the moment.)

    If this is the 520 just try popping the battery out and then plug it in to get it to boot back up

    Almost a year? I've seen more than one iPod touch locked for a minute count that added up to over 40 years.

    If it would be just remove battery and put it back to get past lock code, what is the point?

    Jokes aside, how about you take it to a Nokia Care Center and let them handle it? They should be able to fix it on the spot.

    If your mobile appears to be frozen there are a couple of things you can do to try and fix it.

    First, you need to try what is known as a 'soft reset'. If you can, take the battery out, put it back in and turn the phone on. If you can't take the battery out, try this instead:

    Press and hold down, at the same time, the Volume (down) and Power buttons (they're on the side of the mobile)
    Continue to hold down both buttons until the mobile turns off, which should take you around 8 seconds
    Turn the mobile back on and it should be working normally

    Now, if that doesn't work, you may need to return the mobile to its factory settings.

    This is a serious move as it will return the mobile to the state it was in before you set anything up on it. That means you will lose your contacts, your stored text messages, and any apps that you've downloaded to the mobile. As you start to return the mobile to the factory settings, you will see several warning messages to this effect. i hope i help out that's what i do help people out

    Use Nokia Software Recovery Tool.
    Much easier to use than Nokia Care Suite.

    Download from here - FAQ - FAQ - How can I recover/reset/restore my phone software? - Nokia - Canada

    Edit - oh this thread is old.

    Person above me, please don't bump old threads .-.

    1.Make sure your phone has enough battery power, charge your phone for at least 20 minutes.
    2.Switch off your phone, and disconnect the charger.
    3.Press and hold the volume down key, and connect the charger. An exclamation mark (!) is shown on the screen.
    4.Press the keys in the following order: volume up, volume down, power, and volume down. ( in case there is no power button don't have any idea )
    5.Wait for your phone to reset, during the reset there will be gears rotating on the screen for up to 5 minutes, after which the screen goes blank for ~30 seconds and then your phone will restart.
    6.Go through the initial phone setup, if the date and time are shown, ensure the values are correct.
    7.Disconnect the charger.
    ps: all of your data will be erased after performing those steps.
