N73 Start-up failed!

Hi...
I have a problem with my N73. When I turn it on, the progress stop at the Nokia Logo (the intro). No respond... I have to take the battery out to turn the phone off. But sometimes a window appear and tell that the phone start-up failed.

How can I do the "reset" thing if my phone doesn't pass the Nokia Logo? It seems that buttons don't affect the phone at all. I can't do the *#7370#.

Is there any way to solve this problem? Is there any other way to reset my phone?

ps: sorry for my bad english.

Are you sure it doesn't work? Make sure you hold *, 3 and green simultaneously as you turn the phone on (and keep holding) - don't press the keys one at a time.

Nope. I press and hold *, 3, green since my phone was off, and keep holding those 3 buttons for more than 2 minutes. I've tried this many times. But nothing happen. Are you sure we can do that *, 3, green with n73?

my n73 ran into this prob as well. holding *, 3 and green while charging the battery (without charging it didn't work) and starting the phone did it for me. lost all data though...

thanks for the info!
