Hard Reset Keys for Neo V & Sola

Hi All

I just want to know how to hard reset the below 2 phones. I already know how to reset it to factory defaults using the settings menu.

1. Neo V.

2. Xperia Sola

1.The reason why I want to know these is because in case my phone is not booting up at all and it keeps on restarting after it comes to the main screen. I need to know the key combinition such as Volume rocker down + power (for HTC), what is it for Sony mobiles.

2. The Sola has inbuild batteries so in case the phone freezes, how can i restart or reset the phone.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Hard Reset Keys for Neo V & Sola

Thanks for your prompt reply uliwooly, but I tried that just now on my Neo V, but it didnt work. I pressed them for about 30 secs but still no hope. I have tied that in both ways..that is when its already powered on as well as when its totaly off and then pressing them both together.

Is there any other way? what about the Sola, if it hangs, how can I reset. I cannot take the battery out.

Re: Hard Reset Keys for Neo V & Sola

For the Neo V you need to remove/replace the battery. The method uliwooly gave for the Xperia sola is correct (and the same for all our 2012 devices with embedded batteries).

Thanks Jeff.


That solves the Sola issue.

What about the Neo V. How do I start up to Quick boot/menu from where I can reset the phone, incase my phone is not loading or starting up or just restarts all the time before it reaches the homescreen.

Thanks in Advance

Sorry, there isn't any process other then reseating the battery.

I tried both ways (reseating and replacing the battery), but my Xperia Neo V is still not starting up properly. It is booting indefintely.

Could you please suggest any other way to resolve this issue.

Thanks in Advance.
