How to restart new Microsoft account as it shows no option and it shows attention required

To solve this problem you need to do a soft reset on your Nokia Lumia 535. To do this you hold down both the Volume Down and Power buttons on the phone until it vibrates and shuts itself down. Be careful not to turn off the phone accidentally while you do this. After this, the phone should reboot automatically and your ability to reinstall apps should be reinstated.

How can I download apps and games on Microsoft Lumia 535?

I have a Microsoft Lumia 535 and every time I try to download an app or a game it tells me to set up my family.. I have tried: So far I have tried to set up my family, made at least 3 accounts but nothing happened.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

After you set up the family account you need to sync your Microsoft account. You need have the correct age in the family account as well. If you have not set that up then the phone assumes you are under age and blocks installs. So login to your Microsoft account on the phone and Sync. Also, if you have a Nokia Account you will manually want to put the email and password back in.

I tried switching off my phone so I could restart it. Now it won't even turn on?

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Do a hard reset. Pull the battery and hold the Volume Down and Power button for 10 to 15 seconds. The phone should restart. Then you can perform a hard reset and although you will be losing data, it should fix any firmware issue you are experiencing. Windows phones with 8.1 had this problem after they updated. The only fix was a soft reset and then a hard reset.

How can I resolve the error: attention required on Windows phone?

I really thought it was just an issue regarding my email. So we went and master reset it. Made up a new email, although I know my previous email was really working. I can log-in into my email without issues. But after we made up a new email, tried downloading some apps, it went back to the same error.. I have tried: Soft reset. Master reset. Change Microsoft email. I think it was caused by: At first I thought it was my email. Usually, if there's an issue w/ download its about the issue on your email address.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

It is about your date, time and region settings. Also, you need to verify your Microsoft Account and agree to the terms and conditions. Then manually Sync the account. You also might have a corrupted SD card. Go into the Store settings and set a download to install on the phone. See then if you can install an app.
