    Thanks - found that but I think it just gives a soft reset. However I found the combination of buttons that enables a hard reset on www.hardreset.eu/ - thanks for the assistance.

TouchFLO is not launching in my HTC touch viva phone


Not quite sure whether the actual system is corrupted but you may try to hard reset the phone. But note that hard reset will wipe all your data so take a backup before resetting it.

Hi my htc touch diamond restarts randomly few times a day. can anyone help


try updating your software to 1.93 rom, i was having the same issues when i was on 1.37 and my partner was on 1.35 updated and not had the issue since!

update site - http://www.htc.com/www/supportdownload.aspx?p_id=133&cat=2&dl_id=2

also if that doesnt work try doing a soft and/or hard reset -

Performing a soft reset

Perform a soft (normal) reset to clear all active program memory and shut down all active programs. This is useful when your device is running slower than normal, or a program is not performing properly. If a soft reset is performed when programs are running, unsaved work is lost.

To perform a soft reset

htc_touch_diamond_2_hard_reset_soft_reset.jpg

1. Pull out the stylus, then remove the back cover.
2. Use the stylus tip to press the RESET button (red) located at the opening of the stylus bay. Your device restarts and displays the Home screen.

HTC Touch Diamond 2 hard reset
Performing a hard reset

If a normal reset does not solve a system problem, you can perform a hard (full) reset. After a hard reset, the device is restored to its default settings-the way it was when you first purchased it and turned it on. You will lose any programs you installed, data you entered, and settings you customized on your device, and only Windows Mobile® software and other pre-installed programs will remain.

Warning! Your device will be set back to factory default settings. Make sure that any additional installed programs and/or user data have been backed up before you perform a hard reset.
Important If Encrypt files when placed on a storage card is enabled, backup all files from the storage card before using Clear Storage, hard reset, or updating the operating system. Otherwise you will no longer be able to access the encrypted files on the storage card. Use ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center to transfer files between your storage card and computer. After the procedure, copy your files back to the storage card.

To perform a Diamond 2 hard reset
1. With the device turned off, press and hold the VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN buttons, then briefly press the POWER button.
2. Continue pressing the VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN buttons until you see this message on the screen:

htc_touch_diamond_2_hard_reset_soft_reset_1.jpg

3. Release the VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN buttons.
4. Press the VOLUME UP button to perform the hard reset, or press any other button to cancel the reset.

Htc diamond screen is locked and forgot code how can i unlock it



If you forget your password, you can hard reset or clear the device
memory. Before you do this, make sure you back up your data and files
so that you can restore them back to your device. For more information
about hard resetting the device and clearing the memory, see “Resetting
Your Device” in this chapter. See page 244

Hard reset for a HTC Touch Diamond


I find certain voodoo rituals to do the trick. Especially those derived from rites originating in the southern gulf coast region. To start, build a low, hot burning fire pit surrounded by granitic stones roughly the size of oranges. Be sure you have a light bed of gravel beneath the fire itself to allow air space for the spirits to commune before entering the fire and your device. Use eucalyptus logs ages approximately 2 months for the fire itself, and sprinkle a solution of pulverized bat wings soaked in winter menstrual blood from a one year old goat. Wave your Diamond over the fire vigorously while chanting the names of all three major thorn gods repeatedly. That should do the trick.

Hard reset for a HTC TyTn


There are two ways:

1.
Press and hold the two soft keys (the ones with dashes on) and at the same time insert the stylus in the soft reset hole. All three things need to be done together and a warning will appear. (it is a bit fiddly)

2
Go to Start>Settings>System (Tab)>Clear Storage (Icon)
