My new G1 no longer turns on when I open the keyboard or or press any of the buttons. The light keeps blinking. I've tried charging it and nothing happens, It just keeps blinking and the screen stays off. I can't turn it on or off either

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.
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.
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! [Via Android Forums]
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.
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.
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.
