Have a HTC Phone, It comes on and won't let you do anything and goes black. How do I get in it to do anything?

If there's no removable battery, leave the phone on until the power is gone, then charge and it should work again.

Voyager phone external screen is blank. When powering up Verizon logo comes on and then it goes blank

Need more info...

Can you see the power and antenna strength bars before it blacks out?

Leave it to charge for at least a half hour before trying it again.

Leave it on the charger while you're trying. Try another charger/outlet.

Remove the battery for a minute or three and then put it back together and try again.

Further suggestions would depend on results and any other symptoms.

My enV2 wont turn on

I swear this sounds like a low power problem but I am sure you have checked this and I don't want to insult your intelligence. Let's make sure the battery is charged and good. These cell batteries, because they are so fragile and volatile, actually have some mildly complicated circuitry built into them for temperature sensing, short circuit overload, charge rate, peak charge detection, polarity, voltage sensing. They can just fail out of the blue. Try it with another battery if you have one. My Nv2 is in pieces now awaiting a new screen else I would test it along with you. You can find me on as MeccaTronix and we can go from there. Just post a thread question to me and I will respond. Till I hear from you, try it plugged in to the charger without the battery in and see if the problem persists. is where all of us cell geeks go to share solutions and problems. In the mean time I will reassemble mine minus the screen to see if we can figure something out. I can at least get spare parts for you cheaply.

Blackberry bold suddenly shut down

Lots of battery issues with the Bold. Try taking the battery out, keeping it out and connecting to PC with USB. Do any lights come on? Red light should appear. Put battery in while connected to USB.

Another fix that I found for a friend-leave the battery out of the unit for a day-put it in and plug in power cord or USB. It worked.

Problem with new mobile

If you can try another fully charged battery, in your phone and it works then it might be a dodgy battery problem. leave the phone off to charge the battery for 10 hours and see if its better.

Sidekick 3

Sad to say, this is a common problem with the sidekick 3.

The charging port probably has gone bad. If it is under warranty call t-mobile.

If not, you can have it repaired but it can be pricey.

A workaround is to buy a sidekick charging cradel with a spare battery charging slot. An extra battery makes this easier. This will allow you to charge your battery outside the phone.

Both will cost you about 40 dollars total on eBay.
