Just bought a G1 earlier this week and had same issue this morning, freaked out (I did just get it) and proceeded to call T-Mobile support.

I was told that this is a known defect in the phone and that the only remedy is to remove the battery as you have been doing and put it back.

I know it's probably not the answer you wanted to hear, but, for all the great things this device is capable of, it's a small price to pay.

Why does my Panasonic Viera TV model # TC-P60UT50 randomly turn on by itself multiple times a day.


I would start by removing the batteries from the remote to be sure that isn't turning it on, if that isn't the issue there may be an issue with the main board and it needs replacing.

My Toshiba Satellite M65-S809 Laptop will not turn on! However it turns on randomly sometimes when i toy around with it, but that happens rarely. I tried removing battery, and cable to take out the static,...


Hi,


Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.


1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.


Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

Hi,

I believe this could be a battery,well we have the same phone and all process you take note sounds like it was my problem before.

Why is this things happening?

Battery can be easily damage due to improper usage like charging the phone while calling,listening to music,browsing etc. two current supply is entering your phone simultaneously. One is coming from the battery powered and the other is coming on the dc charger.the result, it will make your battery deform.

Just replace it a new one and for sure it will be fine again.But please avoid or minimized using your phone while on charge.To be able to preserve your battery life for long time usage.


Hope this simple guide helps you. Thank you for visiting FixYa....

1tb LaCie drive turns itself off and on randomly


It probably is about to "die" -- copy all the files from it to your computer, before it does completely quit.

Then, exercise the warranty to get a replacement.

Or, open the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, buy a new, compatible disk-drive, install into the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

G1 turns off by itself randomly


This could happen when your internal memory gets too full. Try deleting some internal memory by uninstalling some apps, or do a factory reset from the system settings.

BLACK SCREEN · I TRIED TO RESTART MY PHONE AND NOW THE SCREEN IS ON BUT STAYS BLACK


I feel your pain. My g1 droped, the screen cracked, now 3 weeks later my screen turns black. Not even turning it off or removing the battery for hours changes this. However, i found if you wiggle the screen just right sometimes you can get your screen back... for a little bit.

LG viewty switching itself off and not restarting until battery removed and replaced LG Viewty randomly switches itself off and won't switch on again until battery has been removed and replaced.


I have exactly the same problem! My Viewty just switches itself off whenever I send/receive text/calls. I can't even switch it on anymore without it turning itself off after less than a minute!
I have contacted LG, but they are not responding. Has anyone found a solution to this problem?
