My guess is that the phone is toast, but, if there is a nearby Microsoft Store, try taking the phone over and see what they say.

Re: Can not boot Nokia 822


The phone [removed] has no liquid or physical damage. I also removed

the battery and put back without any luck.

I used the phone without any issues up to the night , put the charger on,

went to bed and next morning  it was dead...

What should I do next? I have critical pictures and contacts in it.

Thank you.

Re: Can not boot Nokia 822

Wow, I had the same thing happen to my Lumia 822. Verizon's customer service refused to help me, claiming I broke it.  I called Microsoft support and they couldn't do anything more, either.  I couldn't even use Microsoft's Device Recovery Tool to fix it.  It's still in that state, but you might have different luck.

As for your content, I can just hope that you've set up your phone with a Microsoft account, and that it backs up your pictures to OneDrive.  Or that you stored your pictures on a MicroSD card.  For your contacts, the phone should have been backing them up to different services (like your Microsoft account, Verizon account, etc).  Try checking those sites to see if it has anything.
