I have tried all the methods s decribed in this forum, hard resetting, putting in new battery, closing in the connectors etc, all to no avail. Took this phone into a dealer when it happened, got charged a fiver and the bloke told me it has water damage. I know for a fact it hasn't got water damage, as it hasn't been anywhere to get wet.
Are there any other options i can try?
