    try soft-resetting! Hold power and volume down for like 10 seconds and wait for the phone to vibrate.
    if this doesn't solve try an hard reset (warning! it will factory reset your phone!): hold power, volume down and camera until the phone vibrates.

    if those 2 solution doesn't work.. probably is an hardware issue :(

    Thanks Alexaner! I had similar issue with my one day old Lumia 720. The Soft reset option worked fine for me.

    My phone too switched off all of a sudden. The soft reset did work but am concerned as to why it happened considering the fact that its a new phone. Alexander PD, kindly answer the query if you are aware. What can possibly go wrong?

    I too faced same problem:
    1. Inserted a new Sandisk MicroSD card to my new (2 days old) Lumia720
    2. Powered ON
    3. Phone worked fine for 2 minutes and then hanged
    4. Power off
    5. Try to power on .. but phone doesnt come up...actually nothing happens no vobration nothing as iof it is dead :(

    How it got resolved:
    Press the power and volume down buttons at teh same time .. it does a hard(er) reest.. phone comes up again

    The term you are looking for is a 'soft' reset.

    Soft reset (Power + Volume Down for around 15 secs until phone vibrates) performs pretty much the same action as disconnecting the battery and then reconnecting it. It simply reboots the phone and causes the operating system to restart. No data, settings or apps are lost.

    Hard reset (Settings > About phone > reset or Power + Volume Down + Camera Button for about 15 seconds, then lift finger off camera button and follow onscreen instructions) completely resets your phone to its factory defaults, deleting your personal data, settings and downloaded apps. After doing this you will need to setup the phone from scratch again.

    Turning off the phone (pressing the Power button for a few seconds and then swiping down the confirmation screen) should do pretty much the same thing as a soft reset, so I'm not sure why some people are getting different results with this. Perhaps someone else knows if there's a difference between a soft reset and a normal power down (other than powering down doesn't restart the phone straight away and can't be used if the phone has frozen).

    Just in 72hrs Lumia 720 is dead !!
    I plugged in the charger yesterday and its boom. There were atleast 5 people at Nokia care for similar or different issuses with Lumia 720.
    However they refused to replace the device after a lot of argument. Then I went to the shop from where I bought it as he promised me to replace it with in 5 days.
    Now, waiting for the new device. As it comes I am going to sell it to the shop owner or in OLx.
    I bought this phone with a lot of expections from NOKIA and TRUST for quality. I am DONE !! They don't deserve it.

    Good bye MS and NOKIA .
