Keep it pressed till ten secconds. If it's not then just plugin the charger and let it for 5 minutes to see if it starts charging. If not, then do what SUDHAKAR saied, cause you probably have a dead battery

You have to open the 2 screw (on the left bottom (sideways) and right bottom (side ways)) and remove the bottom cover by gently shaking left and right along with pulling power. Observe how the plastic lock is in the place. Then remove the plastic lock like thing. Pull the plastic film (that is sticked to the battery). Finally battery comes out.

There are batteries being sold in ebay.com (worldwide site) and in ebay.in (Indian site). Search under mobile accessories category.

Note that you have to avoid taking out the battery frequently because if any part of the panel breaks, then you have to buy FULL PANEL SET !!!.

Buy a good ORIGINAL BATTERY from Nokia. Then buy Nokia external battery pack model Nokia DC-16 and use it. To recharge the battery pack, you will need a seperate USB adapter (AC to USB) seperately which is not supplied with DC-16. Or you can then plug in the USB end in a PC and plug the other end to the battery pack. But charging via adapter will be better because you don't have to keep PC on for charging only.

ENZYKE, 21 Jan 2013heLLo there! i have a question for the n8 fanatics/geeks there. ... moreHey, what is wrong with your flash? Does not turn on anymore or what? If yes. Then is probably your flash. It is unlikely, though, to be a software problem. But never know.

I have 4mA 2g stanby mode and 6mA in 3g standby mode. My network 3g sucks big time. I also have 204mA in game play. i played fruit ninja for 5 minutes.

Carol, 21 Jan 2013Hey , the thing is a bit tricky but plese read as many times as ... moreMy phone consumed 0.02W, 4 mA, -60dBm (network strength I think), 8 mAh when in locked screen condition with best profiles and dailycop running in the background.

No incoming / outgoing call and incoming / outgoing SMS occurred during the test period.

Is it normal?. I tested in strong (all network bars were visible in pure white colour) signal area only.

How is the AMOLED screen compared to the N9 AMOLED screen? I'm not talking about ppi/resolution, but more about the contrast, colours and the blacks. I found the N9 screen one of the best. But I'm still thinking about buying this phone too.

Can you post your N8 phone's power usage (in mA and W) without background applications running under these conditions :

> in a strong GSM network area.

> in weak GSM network area.

> in strong 3G network area.

> in weak 3G network area.

Weak network means with single network bar.
