    My phone will not turn on. When I push the power button a red light blinks repeatedly. As soon as I let go of the power button, the light stops. I have taken the battery out several times and for different periods of time. Each time I place the battery back and attempt to turn the G1 on I have the same problem. I've also had freezing issues and have had to remove the battery several times to turn the phone on

    I have had this phone since december. The first G1 I recieved was defective and would sparatically shut off and not turn on again. I returned it to the store for another new G1. Its a nice phone but I do not recommend to any one. Too many problems!!!

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

1 have a 6 year-old Mitsubishi model WS-48511 series 1080 rear projection TV that now won't turn on. A few days ago we shut the TV off, and now when i plug it in the blinking green power light...


This is called the blinking green light of death-----only one of two things can cause this problem.

First: remove front speaker grill (IT PULLS OFF) AND remove inspection plate behind it; look for the two bundles of wires coming down and to the right from the front keyboard of the set.

Unplug both plugs you find (different and marked so you cannot mix them up-----the idea is to take the front keyboard out of circuit-----set will still function with remote as receiver is behind front screen)

Try (after 70 seconds) to turn on with remote

If it comes on---defective reset button on front keyboard----use set only with remote or remove and remove actual reset switch---it is located behind and part of frame for screen----entire front screen would have to be removed to get at it.

Second: if disconnection of the front keyboard does not help, the DM unit is bad.

As you look from back of set it is large metal box at extreme left side.

The blinking light is the unit trying to "Boot" up-----these have a problem where caps and a few other parts in that unit fail-----kits on the net are available----Mitsubishi no longer sells or services these units but PTS Electronics does repair them.


Let me know if you have questions and try disconnection of the front keyboard FIRST.

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.

Logitech m205 won't work, the light keeps blinking


If your unit is a wireless keyboard only, then there is a button on the bottom of the keyboard and another on the receiver that is plugged into the usb port of the computer. In order to calibrate the system when it looses its signal, you have to press and hold both buttons down at the same time for 30 to 45 seconds. That means press the button the receiver and the button on the bottom of the keyboard at the same time and hold them down for 30 to 45 seconds. This will revive the signal and bring it back to working condition.

If your unit is a wireless mouse and wireless keyboard then there are probably 3 buttons involved that need to be pressed and held for 30 to 45 seconds at the same time. One button on the mouse, one on the keyboard and the last on the receiver.

If you press and hold the buttons down as explained above, it will correct the problem.

phandroid.com/2008/10/25/how-to-reset-your-g1-and-start-from-scratch

"It came time to part with my review unit of the G1 (Thanks T-Mobile!) and send the phone back to its rightful owner. But what about all the personal info on the phone? The apps, texts, e-mails, AIMs and all that jazz? A quick search of AndroidForums.com turned up an easy way of restoring your G1 to factory settings:
if you power off your phone and hold the home (shaped like a house) and the end (red hangup button) for about 20 seconds you get a triangle with an exclamation point and a picture of the G1.
Now all you have to do is pop open that pretty QWERTY keyboard and there are several keyboard shortcuts you can use to accomplish what you want to do:
Home+Back reboot system now - (Soft Reboot)
Alt+L - Toggle log text display - (Toggles between the exclamation and menu options)
Alt+S - apply sdcard:update.zip - (Not brave enough yet)
Alt+W - Wipe data/factory reset - (What I chose, had to re-register, out of the box settings)
thee last option (Alt + W) and restored my borrowed G1 to factory settings. I'm sure the soft reboot could be helpful too, should you run into problems a troubled application may have caused. We didn't try the other 2 options so use at your own risk.
By the way, I couldn't live without a G1 so I made the leap and purcahsed a G1 with a T-Mobile service plan. I'm still a loyal Verizon customer and will simply have to keep both plans... but I NEEDED the G1. So basically, you can expect the application reviews and insight you've gotten at phandroid.com to cotinue since we've got our very own device now!

I turned my G1 phone off and back on and now all I get is a screen with a triangle and a exclamation mark on the screen, the phone wont even turn off unless I take out the batery.


If the G1 is stuck on an error or startup screen you can go to this link save it to your desktop and then unzip it, copy it to a memory card insert the card into the phone and then follow these instructions. http://android-roms.googlecode.com/f...3_Recovery.zip 1. The device must be powered OFF to perform this reset. If the device is on, turn it off. ? Note: If the device is not responsive and does not turn off, remove the battery and re-insert it. 2. Press and hold the Home button and the Power button (the red hang-up button) at the same time. 3. Keep holding Home and Power together for at least 25 seconds, even if the "Startup" screen appears. 4. Release the keys when you see a black screen with a warning sign. 5. Slide the keyboard open. 6. As a shortcut, press ALT+W to factory reset the device. If this does not work, continue with the below steps. 7. Press ALT+L. 8. Press Alt+S to apply the recovery. ?this is what you put on the memory card? 9. Press the Home + Back key.

Try pressing any key on the keyboard and see if it wakes up.

My G1 phone wont factory reset itself and i dont know what to do, im not sure if i can still return my phone and get a new one because i had it since March 13,2009


Have you tried a reset using the hardware buttons? To perform this, you need to turn off the phone first. While it is off, press and hold the home key and the power key at the same time. Keep holding the buttons until you see a screen with a triangle and an exclamation point in the middle. Once you see the triangle, let go of the buttons and open the keyboard. Press ALT+W at the same time, and the phone should reset.

Forgot ..gmail acccount info..need to unlock the phone


Is this after forgetting the screen pattern? If you cannot remember the username and password to your G1, there is not a way to recover it at this time. The only way for you to have your phone again is to do a master reset using the hardware buttons. This will delete all of your data on the phone only (SIM card and memory card data will be fine). To do a master reset power the phone off completely. Hold the home key and the power key at the same time while turning it on again. You will see the T-Mobile G1 screen first, but them you will see a screen with a triangle appear. You can let go of the keys and open the keyboard. Press and hold the left ALT key and then press the letter W. Release both the keys and the phone will power off. Then it will power on again and act like you just removed it from the box. Create your new account and write down the username and password this time that way you wont forget it.
