    Well, my Lumia 900 tht had no data connection issue (4g or LTE would not come back until reset) just shut off and wont come on. I've tried charging, plugin to the pc yet nothing! This is becoming very frustrating, anyone else have a bricked 900?

    Hold the power button down until you feel the phone vibrate, then release the power button.

    Thank you that did the trick, had to hold it for 25-30 seconds. Any reason for why that was needed? I had a HTC Arrive before this phone and never had these issues. The 900 I bought for my wife works perfectly but this one just seems buggy

    I periodically had this problem with some Android phones, except sometimes it just plain would not start even with the trick mentioned. I found that if I plugged it in, then unplugged it, it would often then restart.

    Probably due to the reset. If your phone is buggy then return it.

    I have connected my phone to the pc and used the original charger. I now have tried to hold the button down to turn on my device, unfortunately none of this has worked. Do I need to fully charge it? leave it plugged in when I hold down the button? how long does it take for to feel the vibrate? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Some equipment man not provide enough current to charge through USB. If you haven't already, plug in straight into the outlet using the OEM charger and cable and follow the instructions below:

    I had the same issue and was able to resolve it using the steps above.

    Just had this happen to me. I was charging it and checked something on the phone a few times. The first few everything was fine then it went dark and I had no response. It took a long press of the power button to get it back on. A little worried this wont be an isolated incident.

    Ive had the same thing happen to me. I bought my 900 on Monday and t has shut off on me about 8 times since. To turn it back on i hold the power button for about 20 sec. and then i press it again and it comes back to life. its a bit odd because when it shuts off on its own and i call my phone it rings normally on the landline but the 900 just sits on my desk looking pretty. Too bad, so sad. Hope they have a another Cyan available to replace this busted one.

    There is another thread about this ... Nokia Lumia 900 Lumia Locking Up

    It has happened to me about 20 times over the last two days. The phone just won't wake up from sleep unless you do a hard reset. Taking it back tomorrow.

    Finsihed the update, the phone rebooted and came up and everything was great.

    About 15 minutes later when I went to wake the phone via the lock, the screen was just dead. Phone is on chiming and vibrating and the lock button does work but the screen is just not waking up to display anything.

    Touchscreen is working.

    Is there actual proof that the sealed battery is the cause of the power issue? I picked up a black 900 on release day. It worked great, I did the software update thru Zune, and a day later the power issue reared it's ugly head. It's happened 3 more times since then. I'm returning my phone today to pick up a new White Lumia 900. Lets hope all the bugs are worked out!!

    I had fhotoroom lock up my lumia, What you need to do is hold down the power button while pressing the volume key down. It should do a soft reset (like a battery pull)

    While your phone is plugged into the Nokia AC charger, hold the power button down and keep holding it for at least 5 solid minutes. The first report of this stated 5 to 15 minutes, so you would help the community by tracking the actual time. By holding the button, you are allowing the battery to get a little charge (without constantly rebooting). When you release, there should be enough juice to get through the bootup process. After that, your phone should charge normally.

    Would really like to know if this works. In theory, it makes sense, but I haven't had the misfortune to try it.
