    Hi guys,

    OK, So I was updating the calendar app for WP8.1 released a few days ago, and suddenly my Lumia 520 hung with a dark screen. I waited a couple of minutes, but it didnt respond. So I pulled the battery out and tried to start it again, and there we go. I am stuck at a message saying ERROR: Unable to find a bootable option. Press any key to shut down right after the Nokia logo which comes for 2-3 seconds after I press the power button. I tried removing the battery and pressing the power button for 30sec (discharing, which works for PCs) but to no avail.

    I am downloading the NSU software which is 1.5GB. It is going to take me a few more hours to complete.
    Any idea what I can do?
    I called Nokia and they say they are going to charge me $60 for the repair. Crazy, I bought it for a $110.

    I would say a Hard Reset, if not, looks like a repair or replacement...
    If Hard Reset doesn't work, try the software, you can't brick it anymore!

    Start looking for a new phone.

    By the way a soft reset is better for a phone than getting the battery out.

    Battery pull on a powered on phone can play heck with the OS and hardware... Yet I consistently see posters recommending it rather than a Soft Reset all the time.

    Makes me sad.

    NSU should fix it, there are tutorials on this forum for flashing a ROM to your device.

    Can you tell me what soft reset means?
    Turning off the phone with the power button?

    Hopefully it will.
    My internet is very slow. It takes ages to download 1.5GB

    A soft reset is simultaneously holding the power and the volume down button till the phone vibrates.

    Amazon has an AT&T 520 Go Phone for $29.00. If the Software Recovery Tool doesn't work out for you take a look at this.

    You can't fix it with nsu, because probably your motherboard is dead(had the same problem)... Better buy a new phone, if you don't have warranty...Sorry...

    I have the same issue with my Lumia 520. Its saying Unable to find a bootable option. Press any key to shut down. If you have solved the problem then please let me know. I had also downloaded that 1.50GB of data but it is of no use as the windows device recovery tool does not identifies my phone model, i.e., Lumia 520.
    If there is any solution, please let me know
