'Phone Startup failed. Contact the retailer

Just Debranded my Vodaphone N95-1 using the Euro 1 Plumb code.

All went well, set date and time then the phone locked up. Shut the phone down and restarted and it came up with the message

'Phone Startup failed. Contact the retailer'

Anybody got any ideas what I can do to bring the phone back to life?

Thanks in advance.

Andy

How do I do that?

All I get is the message Phone Startup Failed as the phone boots up. Wont let me do anything after that.

Is there some way of getting the phone started again?

Managed to get a screen up by pressing the hang key on startup. I was then able to input *#7870# and was able to restart the phone.

All seems to be fine now (hopefully)
