Yes there is a fix... You need to reflash your phones.. to the person holding down the red button dont.. just press it .. but you want to press the other to down before the red button it will work! If you want to learn more about Flashing your phones goggle Mark Venture's name you will learn how to flash your phone properly! Unless it is under warranty then you need to take it to Verizon and tell them to reflash you phone...also under Bootloader to get your pics you should beable to run P2K Commander.. run it and get your files off.

I'm getting a bootloader usb init screen

Your phone is partly fried. It needs to be re-flashed. You can do it with a USB cable and the proper software....Google "bootloader USB" for some help in finding the software. One thing to try, hold down the "*" and "#" keys while powering up the phone, this could possibly help, but I doubt it.

Good Luck!!!

Bootloader usb init

hold the end key(power) and it should restart back to normal. If it goes back into bootloader then your phones software could be corrupt or could have a wrong value in somewhere. What provider is this?
