    I suggest going to Nokia care as they have the adapters that can power up ur chipboard.

    Its better than going to local repair shop

    Ok try this.

    If you can turn on your phone (without USB cable)
    As soon as phone turns on (even if screen is green or looks stuck) take out the battery (don't switch it off just pull the battery out).
    Replace the battery after it has been out for 2 minutes.

    Run the Lumia recovery tool on your pc

    Plug the USB in the phone.
    Switch on.
    Once the recovery tool sees your phone run the program as normal.

    **Note you don't have to put in your sim code or anything once the recovery tool sees the phone run it**

    A quick test of your motherboard if its done.

    Take battery out.
    Plug in USB in your phone (battery still out)
    If your pc makes the ding ding noise then its not the motherboard its your battery that's the problem.

    nope, NCS doesnt work, it has to be Nokia recovery tool
    I just rolled back my 520 from WP10 to 8.1 using Nokia Care Suite. It worked successfully in less than 5 minutes without any issues.

    Now Microsoft has pulled Windows 10 TP from lumia 520/525 since all phones were getting bricked during downgrade using WPRT. So i guess there is a problem with WPRT :/.

    Thanks to all who helped and provided their valuable opinions. :)

    I took my phone to a local tech. He said it will cost me 400 INR to fix it. It requires a boot repair (using JTAG most probably). So this is the best option after considering all scenarios .I am going for this.
    Will let you know tomorrow if he is able to fix my phone.

    It does not work. I changed my battery and the problem persists. Folks at the Microsoft forums said that Nokia Care can replace something to make the phone work agian. I'll wait until MS find a solution - Hope they will find a solution lol

    Hi All,

    I have the same problem with my Lumia 520. It's completely dead after downgrade to windows phone 8.1 via WPRT.
    I tried everything that can be tried- WPRT, Lumia recovery tool, Nokia Care suite. None of this can detect my phone. The only message that I get from my PC when I attach the phone is that driver Nokia Emergency Connectivity is successfully installed and ready to use. If someone managed to recover his/her phone please advise :-)

    Battery change also won't help.

    For those who have a phone that cannot return back to Windows Phone 8.1, here is the steps to reinstall WP8.1:

    1) Uninstall Windows Phone Recovery Tool from your computer
    2) Restart your computer
    3) After computer restarts, Download Windows Phone Recovery Tool from here
    4) After installation is completed, follow the steps below:

    After you start the recovery process, do not disconnect your phone from the computer until whole process is finished.

    Always plug your computer into the power source so that it does not go to standby mode.


    Steps for recovery process
    1.Download and install Windows Phone Recovery Tool to your computer. If possible, make sure that your phone's battery is fully charged.
    2.When the installation has finished, start the application and the main screen will appear:
    wprt_450x243.jpg

    1)If your phone is not automatically detected, disconnect all phones from your computer and press My phone was not detected at the bottom of the main screen.

    2)If prompted, select the phone manufacturer.

    3)Connect your phone to your computer with a compatible USB cable.

    4)Wait for your computer to detect the connected phone and follow the screen instructions. If the phone is not connected within one minute you can try to restart your phone: Keep USB connected, press and hold the Power and Volume down keys simultaneously. Release the pressed keys when phone vibrates.

    5) Press Install software to start installing the software to your phone.

    Hope this helps

    Hi ajayden,
    I appreciate your willingness to help but your post is pretty much copy-paste from windows insider website and does not help.
    The main problem is that the phones do not turn on and do not vibrate after pressing Volume down and Start button. And in this way phones can not be detected by the recovery tool.
    Also please note that after installing the recovery tool from your link, there is a mandatory update to version 1.2.4. Please updated the steps in your post :-)

    My dear friend,
    Thank you for the post.
    Actually my post was for the OP.

    I am aware of the mandatory update and that means as you install the software, you will be asked to update. So I don't have to add it in the steps.

    Yes it is from Insider website but if people go and read it from there, they will not be asking for a solution here.

    Also, the first few steps is the most important, To uninstall and Install again, cos that's when they have the updated tool (and this is not mentioned at the insider website).

    However for bricked phones, here is the procedure to revive the phone....as you said, I am not going to elaborate here. You can go to the link below to read and try it.
