    Thanks for posting this. My wife’s new 920 just shut itself off for no reason and wouldn’t power-up. I found this web site while on the phone with my phone company (AT&T) and got the phone to power-up using the soft reset. I opted to have them send me a new phone anyway as it’s odd that the phone just shut itself down for no reason.

      Hey we’re glad we managed to help!! Definitely worth opting for the replacement – as with all machine made products, the odd one is faulty!

    Thanks all for the great post! My wife’s screen wouldn’t rotate anymore, a few firm taps and the soft reset fixed it (don’t know which one.)
    Very kind of you all!

    This combination just does a soft reset on the phone, similar to taking the battery out and putting it back in any other type of phone. If you need to fully wipe the phone but don’t have the password use the following link

    expand the FAQ titled “How do I reset my Nokia Lumia if it does not work properly?” and follow option 2. I just did this to my phone, took me 3 tries to get it right, but it wiped it to factory settings without a password.
