2.) Plug into a wall or car charger but not a PC USB charger. This does not work with PC USB connection for some reason.
3.) Hold red on/off button to force a reset.
4.) The big battery icon should appear on screen.
5.) Let charge until mostly or fully charged.
7.) Turn on phone. It should boot.
2 - Hard Reset
To perform the hard reset, hold down the center select button in the
middle of the D-pad/joypad (the raised silver one.) Then, continuing
to hold it for at least five seconds, press the power button to allow
the device to power up. Continue to hold the select button until you
get a screen which asks if you want to perform the master reset. Let
go of the select button, and press the appropriate soft action key to respond yes.
REMEMBER! A hard reset erases ALL of your data!!! This is why the Backup is so important.
You could get Sprite Backup.
In addition, install it to your Storage Card and save your backups
there as well. That way you can restore on the road without a PC.

After charging it up fully, attempt to turn it on without being plugged into the charger. If it will not turn on, try turning it on while on the charger. If it does not power up and there is nothing wrong with the charger you have a phone issue. If it does power on, you need a new battery.
try taking the battery out and while holding the power button in put the battery back in, if you still get nothing on the screen try doing the same , holding the power button down while you insert the charger.
If a tri coloured screen appears you will be able to reflash it, if it doesnt appear, then your battery is dead and it wont charge no matter how much you try, the MDA(or wizard) wont charge the battery, unless windows is running, i would recommend you buy a new battery, they are cheap enough
NOTE!!! If the battery is very low but you can get the multicoloured bootscreen, i would not advise flashing it as you have no idea of how much charge is in the battery, if the battery fails during flashing you wont have a phone anymore
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.
If you plug the charger into your phone and the battery icon does not change, then it means your physical connection is loose. If the battery connection does change but will not hold charge, then the battery is dead. I have managed 20 Q's in our office. Most of the time we just buy new batteries. Sometimes I fixed the connection by doing the following:
Use a needle nose plier and squueze the mini usb tip on the chargerslightly...very slightly. This will give it a "tighter" fit when you plug it into your phone. Make sure it's unplugged from the wall when you are doing this =).
Try taking the batteries out ( fully disconnecting them from the gold contact points) ... then put them back in with the charger already plugged in. It should go to that blue charge screen instead of turning on. LEAVE IT ON THAT CHARGING SCREEN for at least 5-10 mins. Now, Hold down power, screen goes black... then tap power about 2 seconds after screen goes out, and it should start up as normal. If taking the battery out has no effect, I would investigate whether that (the battery... being dead/unchargeable) is the problem. I'm hoping one of the two answers gets ya where you need to go.
OH AND YOU CANNOT USE USB CHARGER TO DO THIS. IT HAS TO HAVE DIRECT FROM-THE-SOCKET POWER TO CHARGE UP THAT FIRST BIT OF COMPLETELY TAPPED CHEMICAL (ELECTRICAL) REACTIONS.
Plug it into your walloutlet usb charger rather then the one connected to your pc. once your battery is so low it wont even have enough juice to show the charge battery screen if your chargeing through the low voltage pc active sync cable.
Have you tried a Master Re-set when the phone is off? Hold the center key and the power button for at least a FULL minute to a minute and a half. You will see the provider's splash screen, but hang tough.
This works best with the device on a flat surface rather than holding it.
Hold down the center nav key and power up the unit. This will restore any files that may have been corrupted and put them to original. If you loaded a 3 party app or something prior to this may be the cause of the issue. Don't use that app.
