    A Nokia 3650 no longer powers up. The Nokia logo comes up, fades, and
    the process repeats. After a few tries the phone turns itself off.

    Although Google only found a few hits on our choice of search words,
    this may be a fairly common 3650 problem -we had the exact same
    problem a year or so ago,and Nokia repaired (presumably replaced) the
    phone then.

    Does anyone have any insight into the technical nature of the problem?
    It would be nice to breath enough life into this phone to recover
    data.

    There a various ways that different people will tell you will sort it
    i.e. holding down certain buttons when powering on the phone/formatting etc
    But really only one way to sort it is a re-install/Flash of the software
    normally does the trick.
    do you know anybody with a griffin box, ufs box etc ?
    you local phone unlocker/shop will prob do it for around 10
    or your local nokia service centre will do it for you normally while you
    wait.. at around 15-20ish if your phone is over a year old ( which it
    prob is)

    Any thoughts on who might offer the service on a walk in basis in the
    eastern Los Angeles region would be appreciated.

    For the record - the Nokia authorized service center nearest me is CPR
    in Pasadena. They flashed the 3650 ($35) and the phone now works. The
    owner opined that the Nokia has an internal battery for maintaining
    the internal memory, which I doubt.
