For the first four types of error codes, you will need to make sure that you're connected to the proper network and that your phone has enough storage space. For the last one, you will need to make sure that your Microsoft account is set up properly. Then, restart your phone. If you're still having issues installing WhatsApp on your Nokia Lumia 520, you will need to contact Microsoft's customer support line to speak to a customer service representative who can help you troubleshoot the issue further. It is possible that your Nokia Lumia 520's hardware is malfunctioning which is preventing it from installing the application completely. The customer service representative will help you troubleshoot the problem over the phone and, if necessary, schedule a repair or replacement for you.

I've updated and after that no access to WhatsApp?

I've uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp. If I tap on screen, it blinks to open, but does not open WhatsApp

When you uninstall WhatsApp, you have to turn your phone off and then on again. If you did not do this, uninstall properly. The problem may still persist so connect to WiFi the minute your phone boots up and then open WhatsApp. Do not open it with just data for the first time because you will be loading all your previous messages and other data from the app.

I have WhatsApp but it stopped opening for the last 48 hours?

When I tap the WhatsApp icon it tells me it's loading, and it looks as if it is, but it just hangs around, achieving nothing. I've tried to uninstall and re-install but that's not successful either. I have a Nokia Lumia and never had this problem before.. I have tried: Re-booting, uninstalling, reinstalling, and nothing.. I think it was caused by: No idea, it just wouldn't open when I wanted to use it.
