The Nokia N8 and Nokia E7 are the two most powerful and feature-loaded handsets in Nokia’s current lineup, but one of the downsides of having all those features to play with – not to mention the thousands of Symbian^3 apps you can download from the Ovi Store – is that you can occasionally take a wrong turn and run into trouble.

You might inadvertently change your on-board settings, or install the wrong software by mistake, leaving you with a phone that’s not running properly, or has frozen altogether. At points like this, you may need to force the handset into action, or even reset it altogether.

Fortunately, as the helpful tutorial video below from Nokia Support Videos shows, there are several different ways to reset or restart the Nokia N8 and Nokia E7 depending on how serious the issue is, and all of them are straightforward and easy to follow.

If your phone has frozen, for instance, holding down the Power button until it switches off may solve your problem. Or you could opt to restore factory settings, leaving your files and documents unscathed. In extreme cases, a full factory reset may be required, which clears the phone of all files and documents, returning it to the state it was in when you first bought it.

As the video clip below shows, whatever course of action you need to follow can be achieved with just a few quick and easy steps. So check it out and rest easy in the knowledge that even what seems like the biggest of problems is easily solved!
