Lumia 950 Crashes when taking a picture? Lumia 950 Crashes when a call comes in? Lumia 950 has to be soft-reset constantly? Lumia 950 audio glitches out and repeats like Max Headroom stuck in a loop?

Have you taken it to the Microsoft store and had them reflash it and run diagnostics to no avail?

Have you read online forums and posted to the Microsoft Feedback Hub it vain?

My wife and I both have Microsoft Lumia 950 phones we purchased the same day just over a year ago. Mine started glitching out. Crashing, rebooting, generally making me want to chuck it against a wall.

RING RING! Who’s there? NOBODY – HA HA HA! CRASH! PULL MY BATTERY AND SOFT RESET AGAIN! MAYBE I’LL REBOOT IF I’M FEELING GENEROUS!

Finally figured it out. Why is mine acting up and not hers? Answer: I use mine more.

And if I use mine more . . . there are more cycles on the battery.

Replace the battery.

It’s that simple.

 

***Author’s Note: I’ll be posting the link to this solution in various forums. Please help spread the word. I love my Lumia 950 and damn that was frustrating!
