Before contacting a Samsung Service Centre, please attempt the following solutions. Some
situations may not apply to your device.
When you turn on your device or while you are using the device, it
prompts you to enter one of the following codes:
• Password: When the device lock feature is enabled, you must enter the password you set
for the device.

must enter the PIN supplied with the SIM or USIM card. You can disable this feature by
using the Lock SIM card menu.

several times. You must enter the PUK supplied by your service provider.
• PIN2: When you access a menu requiring the PIN2, you must enter the PIN2 supplied with
the SIM or USIM card. For details, contact your service provider.

extended period of time, your device may feel hot to the touch. This is normal and should not
affect your device’s lifespan or performance.

Your device must have sufficient available memory and battery power to operate the camera
application. If you receive error messages when launching the camera, try the following:
• Charge the battery or replace it with a battery that is fully charged.
