AT&T TILT SCREEN IS RED, GREEN, BLUE, AND WHITE

Im buying the phone from a coworker who says the phone was working alright when he purchased it. He believes he used the wrong charger and caused the battery to "burn out". I bought a new battery and the phone now turns on, the ATT screen appears and then it will just vibrate and turn off. Now the multicolored screen appears. PLEASE HELP!!!

    ...for some reason i was unsuccessful. Whenever I hooked the USB up to the TILT the connection wasnt detected. On the good hand the white part of the screen did read USB instead of SERIAL so it seemed as if I were getting close.

Hi Greg,

It appears that your ROM has been corrupted. This can be remedied by re-flashing a new ROM to your device.

The ROM is the operating system that your phone uses. My suggestion would be to flash the original ROM from the Manufacturer, then if you want to customize it, you can go to XDA and flash one of their ROMs.

If you are using ATT or Cingular in the US, then the ROM located at this link is the most current one for your phone:

http://www.mediafire.com/?mnf0wzhndm2

If you are not with Cingular, or not in the US, then go to the HTC site and select your country, then search for the current ROM for your country.

http://www.htc.com

Also, on some occasions, the ROM will be provided by your Service Provider, so you may need to check their Support Site.

If you'd like to experiment with custom ROMs, I'd suggest you go to the following site, "XDA-Developers", and do some reading and downloading. These guys are VERY smart, and helpful. They can help you with any questions you might have regarding your HTC Tilt, including flashing, repairs, customizing, etc...

http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=378

To flash a rom, you must connect your phone to your Windows XP computer using the USB cable, then run the ROM update program. The program will confirm with you that you'd like to flash your phone, go ahead and accept. Follow the directions on the Flash program, and when finished, you should get a Flash Successful Message. If not, then the XDA site will be of more help than I can be here. If successful, the phone should restart and you will have a working phone again.

If it does not work, don't give up. The fact that you see the Tri-Color screen means you have a good chance of getting it working again.

Good luck, and PM me directly so I know if it works out or not.

Also, if you decide it's too much hassle, let me know what you'd like for it, I'm sure either myself, or someone on XDA would be willing to buy it if the price is right.

    I apologize Greg. Please try a "HARD RESET" BEFORE flashing and see if this recovers the ROM. Press the two keypad buttons and insert the stylus in the Reset Hole, all at the same time, then release.

    See the image below.



    I'm Truly sorry, this will save a LOT of time if it works.

    Did you try the Hard Reset Instructions at the bottom?

Treo 700 P red, white, blue, green checkered screen


Finally found this solution! It is a connection issue at the bottom of the phone where you would plug in the cable to hotsync your phone.

Put in your hotsync cable and wiggle it around really good and it will fix the issue. Do this with the battery out and then pop it in until you have fixed the issue. Took me a few tries as I was worried about how hard to do it, but no problem!

Frozen screen with 4 band colors


Your phone is stuck in bootloader mode, it seems that you may need to reinstall your phone OS on your phone.

Go to the HTC site and download your phone's OS files/installer:

http://www.htc.com/us/SupportDownload.aspx?p_id=67&cat=2&dl_id=68

Follow the installer's instructions after you've downloaded the needed file.

At&t tilt has red, green blue and white bands across the display, in white part says the woed serial


To joeogrimes: what you described was a soft reset.

You can find the different types of resets at:

Hard reset is about half way down and has a picture showing how to do it.

At&t tilt dispaly problem


Download the original ROM from the HTC site, make sure the ROM you download is for your phone (AT&T 8925)
Charge your phone battery using the wall charger or use another battery charged at least at 50% in case your phone can´t be charged.
While in the tricolor screen connect your phone to your PC, run the exe file you just downloaded and follow the instructions.
After a few seconds you´ll see that the phone screen turns white with a progress bar, wait for 100% completion and a few seconds after you´ll see your phone booting again
