reset from start-up display for uiq?

Does anyone know if uiq3 has a reset key sequence similar to that of s60 ("green answer key"+*+3) at the start-up display?

Something very wrong happend to my p990i this morning where the phone was frozen with a "Main" application error window displayed. Shut the phone down, then trying to restart resulted in an endless cycle of SE start-up flash display, then just the beginning of my alarm tone (the phone had been set for a morning alarm) and then phone shut-down. The phone starts up again but it's the same cycle; never boots up completely (hence cannot reflash with SEUS; same thing occurs when attempting to charge the turned-off phone). Only way to stop the cycle is the 10-second-power-key trick.

Have tried removing SIM, MSDP card, battery for +1 hour....

Only apps installed are Swiss Manager & Opera mini (both on memory card).

Many thanks in advance for any help as the phone is a very nice (but expensive) paperweight now.
