My Dad bought a Nokia 3110c mobile recently (a good phone, I should say) but it started giving some trouble in a few days. The Nokia 3110 classic mobile phone automatically switches off and restarts randomly.
I tried Googling, found no exact solution to this problem but still I’m compiling all the information that I was able to gather from support forums and other real life sources regarding the Nokia 3110c restarting problem:
The Problem with Nokia 3110c – Switching off and automatically restarting
This is what happens. Nokia 3110 hangs, gets switched off and restarts randomly. More often, it restarts around 3 times or so and then gets switched off.
Possible Causes and Solutions
Cause 1 – Phone Memory Full – Nokia 3110c mobile phone has got 9MB of internal memory.
Solution – Keep the free space between 350 to 500 KB, so as to keep things running smoothly on your phone and prevent Nokia 3110c from restarting.
Cause 2 – Changing Themes – Some people have reported that the phone restarts automatically when they try changing display themes on the phone.
Solution – Don’t get your phone loaded with too many themes downloaded from the internet or atleast, don’t switch themes frequently. These themes, mind you, also load up things into your already falling Nokia 3110c phone memory.
Cause 3 – Memory Cards – Some people have reported that Nokia 3110c restarts due to some issues with the memory card.
Solution – Remove the card, get it formatted and then insert it back and then restore factory settings. This just might solve the issue.
Cause 4 – Transferring data via Blueooth / USB data cable (or) Updating Music Library – A few people have reported that their Nokia 3110c mobile phone restarts when updating the music library.
Solution – Don’t try updating of music library frequently or don’t often transfer data in/out of your Nokia 3110c phone.
Cause 5 – MP3 files
Solution – This may seem dumb, but consider converting all your MP3 music files to WMA and then store them on the memory card. Some users suggested this.
