Hi i have a huawei (i dont know the number,) but i dropped my phone a few months back and the screen went black. compeletly black. i took the battery out and put it back and and turned it on and all it did...


It'd be a problem with the inside of the phone from when you dropped it, you'll probably have to do a warranty claim (if you have extended warranty) or just buy a new phone.

Is there another way to power on a droid 2?


It's happened to me a few times recently. Simply taking out the battery, then putting it back in usually does the trick. Try plugging in the charger with the battery in. If that doesn't work, take battery out, plug in charger, then put battery back in. Hope this helps.

The phone does not switch on.. when I press the not switch on.. when I press the power button, the Nokia logo shows with a small vibration as usual but then the screen starts blinking white a few times...


hi there!

try changing batteries. or try turning it on while charging, if theres no problem when its directly plugged in with the charger, the battery may be dead (especially if its more than a year old and is frenquently used for calls and internet). if its having the error while still plugged in directly with the charger, a local technician is the best here.

Phone is frozen on startup black screen and vibrates every 10 seconds


My son and I both have the first galaxy S phones, love them. Yesterday his went black, just the 4 buttons on bottom lit up and it would vibrate. No one was able to help us so we bought a prepaid phone as a temp fix. I tried everything even the holding of the volume and power button to hard factory reset..would NEVER get to right selection before it went wonky.

Well this morning I thought that something might be up with the power on button....so I:
1. removed the back and the battery from the unit.
2.very carefully removed the 7 screws.
3. VERY GENTLY pried the screen from the back.
4. Very gently opened up and used a can of air to flush out the pocket fuzzies. the front nevery did come completely off, just the side with the power button.
5. the power button fell out/off and I gently replaced everything.
6.replaced the battery and did a hard reset.
7. Works perfectly now.

Funny thing though, last night while my son's phone was acting up, so was mine, and I had to do a hard factory reset on mine also. It was vibrating at strange times, and would either freeze of get loggy between screens. Fortunately I backed up all of my contacts with my email account.

BTW I am a 49 year old mom, if I can do this anyone can.

My iphone 3GS is stuck at the Apple screen. I've tried holding the off and home buttons to reset, but it's not working


Hi,

This is not a good sign and one of the most common causes with this device. I could tell you a series of troubleshoot.If that would not work, device needs to be send for repair.

Have you tried a hard reset? Hold the Home and Sleep buttons together for 10-15 seconds, until you see the Apple logo come up on the screen. You may need to do this while the phone is plugged into it's charger or a computer, so that it has power.
Usually If it's stuck at that screen, and holding the buttons together for 10-15 seconds didn't help, then there's a hardware issue, and it will need to be replaced.

However, try few more steps

1. Connect to iTunes via USB. Do not disconnect for rest of these steps. iTunes may appear frozen or stuck with spinning beachball....this is okay, do not Force Quit iTunes. I tried a few times w/o it being connected to iTunes and it doesn't work.
2. Once connected, hold Home + Power until screen blinks then Apple logo comes back up.
3. Wait until Apple logo dims slightly (~5 minutes or less). Do NOT reboot until the apple logo dims.
4. Hold Home + Power again until it reboots and Apple logo comes back up.
5. After 2 min or so, the phone may vibrate once or twice. Continue waiting for the full 5 min until Apple logo dims slightly. iTunes at this stage MAY recognize the phone...do not sync or do anything in iTunes.
6. Hold Home + Power for the 3rd time until it reboots. Phone may vibrate again after 2 minutes or so. Eventually you'll break into your Home screen.

Or
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.

Disconnect you phone from your pc leaving the wire connected to your phone not your pc.
open itunes
hold sleep wake button + home button until your screen goes blank...
let go of sleep wake button and continue to hold home while plugging back into pc... should take about 15-30sec and itunes will see your phone in restore mode

IF THIS NOT WORKING

Try rebooting you phone by plugging it into the charger & turn wall socket on

If that also does not work then you need to take it the apple store.. They will replace it or service it.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My screen went black but the vibrate still works.


Try to factory reset the iPhone with the latest version 3.0 on iTunes and see if that helps if not then it might be a hardware problem and not the software issue. Can people still call you??? if you know the phone is on that is?
