    get it fixed by nokia/Microsoft centre. Yes its very much possible due to high voltage.

    if it is the motherboard for sure it might be just easier to buy a new one. the L920 goes for $200 on several sites.

    Unless it has been abused you amy luck out and they may simply replace it or send you a new phone for free. I would think they are eager to please WP owners right now and keep them happy with their devices. Question have you been playing emulators a lot on your phone? The reason I ask is since phones don't have cooling fans for their chips (like laptops) emulators can be dangerous to run for extended periods as they put a huge strain on the chipset and are known to cause overheating and damage over time.

    I would call Nokia care ask them how much it would cost to look at the phone. If its free send it. They might just send you another after looking at it. Let them know what is going on with it.

    I was referring to a Nokia care center. Is that where you are going? I wouldn't go to a phone dealer their interest is in selling you another phone. If you have a Nokia care center I your country I would call them and set it up to mail them the phone. A dealer will always bs if possible because helping you out makes them nothing.

    There are a few stories on the forums where Nokia service centers also scam users by charging insanely high prices for repairs (when other similar centres in the same country charge maybe half).

    Just found a post under the 920 forums. The title is Fix for bricked 920's after reset. Flash process defined inside. Hope this helps.
