Re: MDA problems

Your battery is very very low. The red light is indicating an almost dead battery. In fact, you may have a battery that is too low to charge. Or you may have dead cells in the battery that require you to purchase a replacement. Try my guide to manual battery charging. I have it listed in all of the HTC Wizard (which is actually what type of phone you own) sections.

I cant get my mda to turn on i hold down the power button for a while but it wont turn on i charged it for 3 days and it still wont work what should i do?

Mda Vario's don't charge when turned off, heres what you do.
cut wire off a usb lead the small end strip the red and black wires, put the red wire onto the posative connection where the battery is it tells you what side is posative and negative on the battery, use black with negative and red with posative making sure that no wires touch the other metal strips in the phone, replace battery plug usb into computer and start up the mda and wait for it to boot. once turned on leave to charge as it will charge through the wires connected to the battery, after 10 to 15 minutes plug in the actuall charger and try to remove usb wires without taking battery out. if that is not possable it is ok as the battery should have enough power to start up once it starts leave to charge and always keep some charge in the phone.

T-Mobile MDA won't hold a charge

if you insurance on your phone I recommend using it, I had a MDA for a couple years and had about every problem in the book, but not that one. It sounds like you've done everything possible, the only other thing i could think of is a hard-reset. Anything beyond that would tinkering with the internal hardware.

I think you can get a MDA pretty cheap on ebay these days

I have an T-Mobile MDA. I haven't used it for over 6 months, went to charge it last night. plugged in the charger and the blue power light came on, went to menu screen. Left the MDA charging upon returning...

Your first bet is to remove the battery and hold down the power button for 10 seconds, then replace the battery and try to turn it on.

Sorry I'm not more familiar with the model of phone you're talking about but this has worked for my old PDA's when they won't power-cycle correctly.

this is a sw boot up screen. this is what the screen will look like with no sw on the device, so you guessed it....the download was unsuccessful and corrupted the firmware.....if you tried to reinstall the sw again, and it does not work, you might need a new t-mobile to do that.....OR, you can try to do a master reset by pressing the sw keys.

to do that, turn off the phone, and press and hold the soft keys (buttons located beneath the touch screen that have the lines on them on top of the green call button and the red end call button).....while holding these down, press the power button for 3 seconds and release the power button.....all this time you are holding those soft keys down....the phone SHOULD turn on and go to a black screen with white this time you can relase the two the green button and reset. if this does not friend, you need another one......good luck!

Tmobile Mda Wont Turn On

I would call them at 1-800-t-mobile to make sure your service is set up correctly (if it isn't it may explain why it takes so long to locate the network) or you could use their customer care site at to find a store that will replace/repair it for you.
