    same thing happened to me, the battery still seemed ok, since the icon still showed a fully charged battery. it just shut down out of the blue, and when i try to turn it back on, it flashes a red light at the top side.

    Same exact problem here. Blue light then after taking the battery out and putting it back in, flashing red light. My son read somewhere that the menu button and the mouse button were apparently both pushed dn at the same time for a short period of time causing it to lock up. Still looking for a solution to this issue though.

Well plug the charger into the phone with the battery still intact.....then remove the battery while the phone is still plugged in. then unplug the charger and plug it back in........place battery back into phone and then power it up. That worked for me.

If you turn the phone on whilst holding the trackball down, then the blue light will come on and the screen remain dark. If this is happening all the time I assume the button is wedged down or wet causing it to short.

At this point you would want to use a different outlet, try and different charger, or replace the battery. If it is still not powering on you would want to attempt a master reset to the device.

My t-mobile g1 constantly reboots itself and/or


Heres what to do. Take the battery out and put it back in. You will want to hold both the home button as well as the power button when you power the phone back on. Keep holding these buttons until a screen pops up with a triangle on it and a phone below. Wait 5-10 seconds, and then press the home and power buttons together again. This will bring up the restore options to factory restore the phone. If this does not work, you will need to contact T-Mobile regarding the phone issues.

My g1 tmobile phone keeps turning off on me? what can i do


If it keeps rebooting itself at the G1 and Android screen, you might want to factory reset the phone and clear all the data as there may be a virus. To do this, when turning on the phone, hold the home button and the power button even while the G1 screen comes up. Keep holding these until an image with a triangle comes up. You will then wait 5-10 seconds, and press the home and power button again together. This will bring up the OS screen, and provide you 4 options. One of these options is to wipe and restore to factory. Do this and your phone should work fine after you reboot again.

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.

Getting a red, green, and blue screen when trying to hard reset


your going to have to download a recovery.img of the stock rc29 system and boot that up from that screen. This will hard reset the phone and then from there you can upgrade back to your desired rom.

Blue On G1


ok i had this isssue and figure out what to do. this is all afterm you know that you have a good charger and or battery.

1. completely turn of phone unplug charger.
2. take and put battery back in phone and plug charger.
3. hold hit camera button and power buton. phone will come on if the update was washed it will come straight on. if not you will see the blue LED dont worry yet. just keep holding for 15 sec.
4. while phone blue LED is still on hit and hold (drum Role) menu and track ball for 15 sec.
5. now unplug charger and take out battery. wait 10 sec
6. now put battery back in and leave charger off. and turn on. unless you was in middle of update and hardware failed this WILL bring your G1 back up and running.



hope this helps everyone . MIll$tronics signing out.

Screen wont turn on


You are going to have to ty a hard reset. Don't worry about things being deleted from the phone, as your phone auto syncs with Gmail when you enter your account info again.

To hard reset...turn the phone on while holding home and back. Follow on screen prompt.

If that doesn't work try..

Hold home and power buttons
once phone is on, open keyboard and hold alt first + w
