Store display mode?

I cant click any of the buttons on my cellphones except for the power mode to turn it on, to turn it off i need to remove the battery , when the phone turns on i can see the screen , everything in the screen is fine, the displays are all fine, on the bottom banner the time and date display flashes intermittently with a " verizon wireless" banner, as if it were in a preview mode used to display at a store. i can see when people call or message me but i cant answer the calls or reply the messages, i basically cant do anything at all, except but viewing the time or whoever is calling me. i cant even adjust the volume or ringer type. any help is appreciated thanks

Switch on generates loop cycle and will not open phone.

You should try and reset your phone using the recovery mode - the key combination to getting in to recovery mode is different for many phones, try holding Power + Vol Up + Home Button and see what happens. You can then scroll to factory reset in the menu. This will delete all your stored data on the phone, but not the SD card.

How to put your iPhone, iPod touch to DFU mode and restore from being disabled

This will guide you in putting your device to DFU mode and let you bypass the passcode-lock to recover your device from being disabled.436de15.png
This guide works for all iDevices436de15.png
DFU mode is DIFFERENT from Recovery mode. The obvious difference is that in Recovery mode your device's screen shows a picture that says connect to iTunes (picture below) while in DFU mode, there's no display at all, even the backlight is OFF. If you see anything in the device's screen, that means you're not in DFU mode.436de15.png8b14795.png436de15.png
Here are some ways to put your device in DFU mode:436de15.png
Procedure A:
  1. Plug/connect your device to a computer (Mac or PC)436de15.png
  2. Turn it OFF436de15.png
  3. Press and hold the POWER and HOME buttons together for EXACTLY 10seconds436de15.png
  4. Release the POWER button but keep holding the HOME button until the computer beeps indicating that a USB device is recognized
If you don't get it at first, try holding the buttons for lesser time.

Procedure B:
  1. Plug your device to a computer436de15.png
  2. Press and hold POWER and HOME until the device turns OFF but keep holding for 10 seconds436de15.png
  3. Release POWER but keep holding HOME until the computer beeps indicating that a USB device is recognized
If the phone turns ON during step 2, start over and try holding the buttons for lesser time.

Procedure C:
  1. Plug your device to a computer436de15.png
  2. Turn it OFF436de15.png
  3. Press and hold POWER and keep holding it436de15.png
  4. As soon as you see any display on the screen, press and hold HOME436de15.png
  5. Keep holding the 2 buttons together for EXACTLY 10 seconds436de15.png
  6. Release POWER but keep holding HOME until the computer beeps indicating that a USB device is recognized
If you don't get it at first, try holding the buttons for lesser time.436de15.png
NOTE: Release HOME button once you hear the beep.436de15.png
This is how iTunes should look like if you have been successful:436de15.png

-just click OK, and you should see this 2nd image.436de15.pngd7b54ca.jpg

Click 2nd image to view larger. NOTE: Image above is from iTunes 10.

After putting your device in DFU mode, you can now restore your device thru iTunes without having to enter the passcode.

You can also restore to a version of your choice as long as you have saved your SHSH blobs with Cydia's server.436de15.png
It is important that you do this to make sure that you can restore back to your previous iOS version if you're having issues with the new one. CLICK HERE to learn how to save your SHSH blobs.436de15.png
To download the official IPSW file for your desired iOS version, CLICK HERE.436de15.png
On iTunes, before you click the restore button, you must first, hold alt/option (if you're using a Mac), or SHIFT (if you're using Windows), on your keyboard. This will let you browse for the IPSW file you just downloaded.436de15.png
WARNING: Restoring will remove all data on the device like songs, contact and notes including the jailbreak and unlock (for iPhones), so be sure you backup everything before you do it.

I cant get my phone out of safe mode and when I want to hold the power button for options like power off or restart it goes straight which means I cant follow the instructions on how to exit safe mode...

When you hold the button down to get to the power off window, keep holding the button down til the screen goes black and it reboots. If that doesn't work, try taking your battery and sim card out of your phone , put them back in and turn phone on......

I have safe mode on my phone and i cant turn it off cant use apps i want how do i turn it off? i have a mytouch 4g i factory reseted and rebooted it doesnt work help

Please check your menu key and see if it is stuck. For your phone to boot into safe mode, the menu key needs to be held at power on, so if after turning it off and doing a factory reset you are still in safe mode, then your menu key stuck. I have heard of the g1 having issues with the menu key getting stuck and a replacement is needed. How old is your phone? Are you still under warranty with tmobile? Let me know if you have any other questions.

hi.there...don't worry.. what happens with your new normal..why? when your battery is low and there a pop up screen at the display "battery low...please recharge" that's mean you must charge the battery soon.
when connect your phone to charger adapter and your battery is very low / weak condition the display only showing "hellomotto" and nothing else. but it's normal! diplay need more power from you battery to showing all information.after the battery reach the minimum power to display it ( usually after 15-20' charging) try to push red bottom at your keypad phone and the display will showing again..good luck..
