The on-off button doesn't work all together. What I have been doing is removing the battery then putting it back in. What happens then is, the phone turns on, the palm logo appears... And then it FREEZES. Any solution? Please?!

Re: Turns on then freezes
You may have to do a hard reset on your phone if you haven't already. This will erase everything that has been placed on your device since you have had it--contacts, pictures, videos, texts, emails, etc. It is important that all of your information is backed up to the computer by Hotsyncing your device. If you have not Hotsynced your device recently then you will lose all your information, but since it only goes to the Logo you may have already lost your information. I have a Treo and that happened to my device.
To do a hard reset:
Press and hold the on/off button while taking the battery out of the phone (DO NOT let go of the On/Off button while taking the battery out and do not release even after the battery is out).
Count to ten and then while still holding the on/off button put the battery back in (DO NOT let go of the On/Off button)
The phone should power up and show the Palm logo and at the bottom of the screen the black bar should keep getting longer until it reaches the other side of the screen. The screen should change and say "Access Powered" and then go back to the Palm Logo and that black bar at the bottom of the screen should get longer again.
If the phone doesnt show "Access Powered" and stays on the Palm Logo screen, then make sure that the black bar is as long as it can be and then release your finger from the on/off button.
There should be another screen that comes up and asks "Reset Phone?"
At that point you press the UP navigation key to say YES or the DOWN navigation key to say NO. Either one you press, will restart the phone and it should load fine thereafter.
Sometimes the on/off button gets stuck so you might have to play with it a little. If that the button still doesnt work, you need to take it in to a SprintNextel Service Center and speak with a technician who will open the device and test for any physical or liquid damage which could be causing the button to be inoperable.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The easy answer is to: For Windows, Click the Start Button, then Click Shutdown and then click the restart option, but this depends on what version of windows. If this doesn't work, please clarify with the version of Windows. If your laptop is frozen, hold the power button down for several seconds until the laptop turns off. Then click the power button again to turn it back on. As a last resort, you can remove the battery. Wait 5 or so seconds, re-insert the battery and click the power button to turn it back on.
Try taking the battery out and pressing the power button for 30 seconds to completely discharge it, then put everything back together and try to turn it on. If that doesn't work, there's not much else that you could do unless you have warranty, or get a new phone.
First remove the battery, make sure it is unplug, and press and hold the power button for 30secs. Than put the batty back in and see if it helps. If this doesn't, try removing the hard drive and memory and see if it turns on. If not than the motherboard is dead. Also, when you say doesn't boot. Does it turn on?
The motherboard is most likely damage. First remove the battery, make sure it is unplug, and press and hold the power button for 30secs. Than put the batty back in and see if it helps. If this doesn't, try removing the hard drive and memory and see if it turns on. If not than the motherboard is dead.
First try the reset code which is pressing Left-Right-Shift and On at the same time. If that doesn't work you can try removing the batteries and putting them back in while holding the (-) and ) buttons.
If those don't work, there is a back-up battery located under a panel just above the four normal batteries underneath the battery cover. Removing this in addition to the four normal batteries should reset your calculator entirely.
If none of these work then there may be a short in the circuits of your calculator which could have been caused by leaking batteries. In this case you can try disassembling the calculator (being careful to remember how it goes back together) and cleaning the circuit board with circuit cleaner.
You could try making sure there is no debris in the game cartridge or the compartment by blowing on it, and if it still doesn't work, you will likely have to restore your DS to factory settings. Note that this will delete all of your data.
Remove the battery cover off the back of the unit. (One small Philips screw.)
Remove the battery.
Leave the system without the battery for 10-15 minutes.
Replace the battery.
Re-install the battery cover.
If your DS still doesn't work, you will have to send it into Nintendo and have them take a look at it. If they cannot fix it, they will at least give you a nice discount on a brand new one.
A friend has an Archos 404, media player, and it foze up while she was using it. Could not power it off or get it to do anything. Ended up having to remove the 4 tiny screws and then Remove the battery. This reset the unit completely. Put it back together, including the battery, and the unit powered on and worked correctly. Often a simple system reset can fix most freezing issues.
