Question about HTC Inspire 4G

Stuck in recovery mode

My phone was powering down due to low battery. So between my house and getting in my car and putting it on charge i found out it was on the recovery mode screen said the at&t store which is where i have service. They could not get it to recover or come back to the home page and i did charge it through the night. They put it on charge as well. Also my volume rocker arm has recently come off but it hasn't slowed me down. I'm pointing that out in case something hit the buttons causing it to go into that mode by some chance. They said it was fried. Any chance they were wrong ?

This is a hardware issue, volume keys pressed constantly down. Try fiddling with the volume keys to have them released and bouncing.

Your device might have broken Volume buttons, due to this, once you turned on your device it will automatically go to recovery mode. Note that recovery mode can only be accessed when the device is powered off, and turning on the device while pressing the power button and volume down will directly go to recovery mode.

Try checking your device volume if it is pressing or pushed down, or better send it to a technician for diagnosis.

There are also several reasons why your device directly go to Recovery mode, either your phone software is crashed or your phone hardware is broken.

SOURCE: it gets stuck on the windows mobile screen

You have to execute a "hard reset". The exact method depends on the exact type of HTC phone you have. You should Google for "HTC Touch <your exact phone type> hard reset" and follow those instructions.

Looking at the picture you have a HTC Touch P3450, in which case you can instructions at: http://blog.ryjones.org/2008/01/14/htc-touch-hard-reset/

Make sure you follow the instructions properly. When it still doesn't boot up, you can always perform a firmware upgrade/reset, that's almost guaranteed to work, but is complicated and might break your warranty (depending on wether you bought the device yourself or got it as part of a package deal from your provider).

SOURCE: HTC Touch Pro totally dead?!?!

Dear Muppets.

Does no one of you realize that when a phone or some other electrical equipment has serious malfunctions it is often more then just hard reset or softreset.

I have an HTC touch until one day I am sure I dropped it on the floor

Then woowwwww all of a sudden it started acting up.
Be honest.

These are very delicate phones and not bricks.
They are not as simple or reliable as a basic phone due to the fact that they have complicated systems like Windows.

Aynone ever heard of Windows crashing a PC.
Woowww you sound surprised.

I cna easily make a lot of money making somthing that looks fancy but that works like ****.

Think of some ideas.
Windows, HTC phones or similar. Any modern equipment made in China

This dont understand why a phone whic cost tihs much money can't bemade reliable.

Well come to think of it
Selling 1 million+ of them at a few hundred dollars each gives me an idea.

PROFIT ABOVE QUALITY.

And still you fools fall for it.

Yes the phones looks cool.

Any idea why DELL have been so big for so long.
They produce PC's and laptops that still work reliably after 5 years.

I am typing this on a Dell 8600 my business work horse
I use it for webdesign, VB programming, hardware testing

And trow it in my back everyday and in the boot of my car when I don't need it.

And it has never yes NEVER given me idea trouble.

I have tried a few other laptops
FUJITSU SIEMENS TABLE PC
Worked for 3 months then turned off and never came back on
guess what happend to it
It sold it for parts for 100 Euro

Also tried a brand new ACER.
Send it back to supplier as it kept turning of while doing remote access work.

If it aint broke dont fix it.
If it is .................. BIN

Look at hte amount of hours and time you have already spend on trying to figure out why your phone does not come on or work properly.

You would have had a lot more fun with your new Nokia by now

I personally would recommend LG Touch phones.
I now a 19 year old who had it and he threw it all over te place.
NEVER a problem with it and working like new.

Well if you know that LG are working with PHILIPS then you know why they are so reliable.

QUALITY above PROFIT.

and then still plenty of profit to make good money doohh

Asus zenpad10 tablet stuck in fastboot mode


KEEP HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON UNTIL YOUR PHONES SWITCHES OFF OR PULL OUT THE BATTERY DIRECTLY(If Required) to exit the FAST BOOT MODE and then start your phone normally by pressing only the power button.

Also in case you were trying to enter the recovery mode to wipe cache or hard reset then keep holding the power button and volume DOWN button until you get vibration and release the power button and keep holding the volume DOWN button to enter RECOVERY.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 - Stuck in a power up loop


Samsung Galaxy Note 4: power on off loop:

I have a Note 4 also.. When I updated to one of the newer OS it started power on off looping when the battery got to a low percentage. This would freak out any User. It is normal for many people however. It is a Google software firmware issue that will probably be fixed after the next patch update.

In the mean time, if when your battery gets really low and you get the power on off loop, just charge the device or pop in a charged battery.

There is no fix for this right now. You just have to deal with it.

If your battery is higher then 15% left and it is looping, then the possibility is that either you tried to/or the system automatically tried to update your phone, but the transfer was interrupted or corrupted some how.. could be bad connection between the towers or the WiFi router you were on.. or any number of other things.

If you are in the US, best to drop by a local Best Buy store. Call ahead and ask if they have a Samsung Experience Shop inside. Not all Best Buys have one.

Ask to have Best Buy transfer your call to the rep there if possible (I'm not sure if they have a phone there.. if not you may have to just visit the Best Buy store with the Samsung Experience Shop inside there..

Bring your device and your charging cables/adapter just in case, make sure the battery is charged).. Ask if the Samsung Manager can help you and when s/he will be available.

That person will have the knowledge and the equipment inside the Samsung Experience section to get your phone back to normal again, however note that you may lose all your data files on the phone. It most likely will have to be factory reset and possibly reFlashed with the OEM firmware.

What You have to do is hold the top button and the power button at same time for more than 25 second this will lead to recovery mode, on recovery mode you connect to your pc and then restore it , if is taking longer to get into recovery mode plug it in the power adapter and then put in recovery mode. once you have it restore it.

This happen to me, it got stuck on the apple screen and it was restarting on and off and i could connect it because it recognize it when it turn on and few a second later it turn off.

so just put it in recovery mode first and then restore it.

Iphone won't charge and now won't work


I left my phone charging for a few hours and it appeared not to be charging as the battery icon was staying at 10% of charge. I was confused because it had the charging icon in the upper right hand corner. If your phone is doing something similar i simply powered the phone down and turned it back on. The charge went from 10% to 100% on the display. This is what worked for me hope this helps.

Dead iPhone?


I had a blank screen and couldn\'t do anything. I just held the Home and On/Off button together for about 6-10 seconds and the Apple logo appeared, after that it was all sweet :)
It is a pity this happens. Oh well, at least it was simple to reset the phone and fix my problem. Good job Apple :P
