Question about HTC G1
I have had my G1 yesterday. When I charged it by usb today, it powered off suddenly. It can't be power on by pressing the End Call button. The battery can be used with my good friend's G1.
Sounds like the red buttons have stopped working. you can attempt to reset the phone, if that fails either the button will need to be replaced, or you can contact T-mobile for a replacement given it is still under warrenty.
to reset the phone, try this:
with it OFF press the HOUSE and the POWER buttons until the phone powers up with a triangle and a yellow '!'inside. slide open the screen and press 'ALT' and 'W' at the same time. the phone should boot up as normal. if that fails, call t-mobile 1800-937-8997 for a replacement.

1. Download RC33 update from Google here.
2. Rename the download file from signed-PLAT-RC33-from-RC30.f06aa9b3.zip to update.zip,
and place it at the root i.e the very top directory of your Micro SD
card. (If you added the file to your microSD card by connecting the
handset to your computer via USB [rather than using a dedicated microSD
card reader], make sure to unmount it and disconnect the USB cable now.
3. Turn off your G1 Make sure it's
completely powered off. Now again turn it on by holding the Home+End
keys until you see T-Mobile G1 logo.
4. From the icon screen, open the keyboard and hit Alt+L.
5. Press Alt+S to begin the update. Remember, the update needs to be in the root of the Micro SD card and needs to be named update.zip.
6. Once it finishes, follow the onscreen instructions and press Home+Back to finish.
7. G1 Phone will reboot a few times to flash different parts of the firmware.
If all went well, you should now be running the latest update, RC33. Enjoy your new, shiny RC33 update, complete with Google Latitude!
To make sure all your hard work wasn't for nothing, hit Menu > Settings > About Phone > scroll to Build Number. You should see RC33 in there somewhere.
