Performing soft reset is a really simple thing to do and can be really useful in some situations, especially when your device becomes completely unresponsive. All you need to do is to press the Power button and the Volume down key at the same time and hold the buttons for about 10 seconds. Your Nokia Lumia will vibrate and the booting screen will appear.

When you have issues with your phone, you can perform a factory reset, by going to Settings > About > Reset your phone, and you should backup your files first.

But, what to do if this option is not possible because your device is completely unresponsive, you cannot access “Reset your phone” option and the device is not reacting to soft reset? The only option you have is to perform the hard reset using the hardware buttons.

Same as soft reset, this is also pretty simple. Press and hold the Power button, Volume down key and the camera button all at the same time, and once the phone vibrates, let go of the Power button but keep holding the camera button and Volume down key. Release these buttons after five seconds.

Perform hard reset only if your Nokia Lumia 920 is completely unresponsive and soft reset is not working.
