I have exactly the same problem except flashing with Phoenix (dead usb) didn't solve it.After it switched off (for the reboot cycle) it could not start anymore. When I'm powering it on, the display shows some background activities, then there is a line and finally it switches off. So, I clipped my phone back into the casing and off to the supermarket I went.

Dear, do not switch anything on or off for the next 30 minutes … do not start the washing machine untill I say so” That’s how paranoid I was on Sunday morning. He cant recall which key combo but we was sure it can be done. After following a few links I found a site that explained how to do the hard reset. keep everythind depressed untill the nokia handshake comes on screen. At that point in time, I was the happiest man in the world. The first person I called to test if the phone is working was Dr.
