The first thing you should try on your Nokia Lumia 530 Windows Phone to fix your WhatsApp application is to uninstall it and reinstall it. After you've re-downloaded and reinstalled WhatsApp onto your phone from the Windows Phone Store, restart your phone. When your phone reboots, open WhatsApp, set it up, and try to receive messages from your friends again. If WhatsApp still does not work for you, you may need to perform a Factory Reset on your Nokia Lumia 530 Windows Phone to fix the issue. Unfortunately, this is a process that many Nokia Lumia 530 owners have had to go through to fix their WhatsApp issues. This will wipe your Nokia Lumia 530's data, so you will want to make sure that you back your phone up first. To back up your Nokia Lumia 530, follow these steps:

  1. 1
    Press your phone's Home button.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  2. 2
    Swipe from the right to the left to find your applications list.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  3. 3
    Scroll to and tap on Settings.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  4. 4
    Scroll to and tap on Backup.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  5. 5
    Select everything you want to backup.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  6. 6
    Wait for about an hour.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No

Your Nokia Lumia 530 will now back itself up to your OneDrive account, which is connected to the Microsoft account that you logged into to download WhatsApp. Now, follow these instructions to Factory Reset your phone:

Was this helpful? Yes | No
  1. 1
    Plug your phone into the charger and wait to proceed until it's at 100%.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  2. 2
    Keep your phone plugged into its charger.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  3. 3
    Open your Settings application once again.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  4. 4
    Scroll to and tap on About.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  5. 5
    Tap Reset your phone.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  6. 6
    Tap Yes twice.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No

Your phone will now reset. Once the reset is complete, log back into your phone using the same Microsoft account you used previously. Then, go to the Windows Phone Store to download WhatsApp again. You should now be able to send and receive messages to and from your friends without any issue. If you're still having issues with the application, you will need to contact Microsoft's customer support line (Microsoft now owns Nokia phone business) to speak to a customer service representative who can further troubleshoot your issue. However, since a Factory Reset did not work, you will very likely need to get your phone repaired or replaced, since this sounds like a hardware issue. Depending on your warranty status and the severity of the issue, you may or may not need to pay for the repairs or replacement.
