Try hard resetting it once. But make sure you have enough charge. But this will erase everything.

To perform a Hard Reset


  1. Turn the phone off. If it is frozen, take the battery out and put it back in.
  2. Hold the Home and Power keys down at same time for about 25 seconds. You will see a yellow triangle screen with exclamation point in the middle.
  3. Press Alt+L.
  4. Press Alt+W for a factory reset.
  5. Press the Home and Back keys again for about 25 seconds.

G1 got little wet but it dried out and screen shows all but now triangle and cant get touchscreen to work....what do i do?


If it got wet it might still be wet from the inside and that is why your touch screen wont work, You would need to open it and clean it from inside. Or it could have a bad digitizer and that is a second reason why the touch screen wouldnt work. You can try doing a hard reset if you says it just shows a triangle on the screen.

Turn the G1 off. If it’s frozen on, take the battery out and put it back in the unit.Hold the Home and Power keys down at same time for about 25 seconds. You will see a yellow triangle screen with exclamation point in the middle
Now to wipe the device clean:
Press Alt+L. Press Alt+W for a factory reset.
Press the Home and Back keys again for about 25 seconds.
The device should then reset again and the hard reset is complete.

G1 is frozen after new system update its been 30mins and i already took the battery out to restart it


This was copied from a site on the web. I personally have used the instructions below and it worked for restoring my G1. Once it is restored, you may want to try to run the update again.

1. Turn the G1 off. If it’s frozen on, take the battery out and put it back in the unit.

2. Hold the Home and Power keys down at same time for about 25 seconds. You will see a yellow triangle screen with exclamation point in the middle.
Now to wipe the device clean:

3. Press Alt+L.

4. Press Alt+W for a factory reset.

5. Press the Home and Back keys again for about 25 seconds.

The phone should reset again and the hard reset is complete.

Blue light on top of g1


I solved this problem by booting into SAFE MODE on the G1:
Press Menu Button and Switch on the G1 Phone using Power button. (Do not release menu Key).
That Got it to turn on. but upon power down it did the same thing with blue light. So I always start in SAFE MODE. I will start uninstalling programs until i find out which one is causing problem.
