    After a while the screen appears. Sometimes it takes hours. If you need an app, just press SEARCH and type the name of the app.
    I have slow down the problem by having just a few icons on the start screen.

    I updated my Lumia 820 to Windows Mobile 10 Technical Preview last night. Now phone does not even boot up. No charging indication as well. No power at all! :(

    There's an advice for keepin plugged phone during updates, for avoid brick! You must connect to a pc and use Device Recovery Tool and hope it works.

    I find restoring the phone if you get a call during it fails recovery. No Start Screen Tiles. You have to hold down on app shortcuts in the All Apps menu and add them to Start creating the entire Start Screen from scratch.

    I'm experiencing the same issue on 10.0.10586.242 and 10.0.10586.318 on SAMSUNG ATIV S.

    The issue is as follows:

    • The phone restarts all of a sudden.
    • It works for some time, then it restarts again, soon after it restarted itself.
    • After this restart you see Windows logo quick and then you see only black screen.


    It looks like there are issues with writing to the SD card. Seems to me that Windows restarts on errors writing to the SD card. Next time it fails to start due to errors on the SD card.
    If you pull out SD card, the phone enters loop mode (it buzzes and Windows logo doesn't show off).

    I've had this on 10.0.10586.242. Left the phone on the charge while I was sleeping but was happy to find the phone working in the morning.
    Thought that was a single case. However today's morning the phone restarted again. Now that it 10.0.10586.318. It wasn't update issue, because the phone worked for more than 24 hrs after it updated to 10.0.10586.318.

    I had this problem, then thought to pin an app to the start screen (select and hold, then choose pin to start from the menu) - the start screen re-appeared, though with only one tile.

    Updated my Lumia 635 over lunch with what was "Important" or "Critical" update (don't remember the actual title).

    After the download and update, phone went blank, like powered off, no response to anything.
    Took back cover off, removed/replaced battery, started up phone.

    I see new lock screen photo and can swipe up but, only see notification bar icons (cell signal, LTE/Wireless, notification, and battery) and bottom buttons but, and this is the big BUT, no Start Screen icons. Basically the phone seems to be working but none functional.

    Anyone else see same?
    I guess no one ever figured out anything.

    I have a Lumia 650

    I'm not on any preview builds

    I know when it's about to happen. The Microsoft screen stays up and extended time. The flag screen stays up and extended time. Then I just get a loading screen.

    I can't get calls and text like some people. I get no cellular or data activity at all. I have to get on wifi

    I can open apps using search button. I can't play the files on my phone and sim in Groove.

    It eventually loads on it's own, but it's taking longer and longer each time. Sometimes hours. And the problem is not just after restarts. A few times lately the phone just seemed to freeze or hang, and I had no choice but to restart.

    None of the solutions have worked. Not resetting. Not changing start screen settings. Not trying airplane mode. Taking out sim might have worked once or twice.

    When it finally does load I have to restart get cellular and data connections. Maybe one time cellular came back without restart and some text came through

    If you use the device recovery tool to flash the device and factory reset it, does it work?
