Re: Nada

I would go to the AT&T support site or HTC. from there you can download the firmware update file wich can try to recover the unit for you. from the sounds of it, it may be stuck in bootloader mode. either way, its likely you will loose your data and programs.

My HTC TYTN11 shows red green white etc colors when switched on

the tricolor screen means your device is on bootloader mode.

this mode is for reflashing your device OS.

if you entered this mode accidentally, you might try to release your device's camera button. Since the factory setting to enter bootloader is reset button+camera button from standby mode.

try to get battery out and release the camera button. many times happens that this button get stuck inside, because it's not a button you use many time and it get fully of dust.

I cant go beyond the red green blue white screem

Everytime I turn on my phone its like that.
Nothing's wrong with your phone dear.
If you think Im not sure well I have the same phone and I've had it for a year. So Im sure nothings wrong. As long as its operating fine its ok. Believe me.

Just a little check...

Can you still use the camara?
Can you beam a photo to another phone using bluetooth? If yes, than NOTHING is wrong.

If you have anymore questions I'll be glad to help. Just comment back and I'll try to answer you ASAP.

Good Luck!

Phone frozen: The screen just shows boxes of red, green, blue and white.

Just had the same problem. When you take the battery out, leave it out for 4-5 minutes. Then when you put it in and reset while holding the on/off red button, it should start. Mind did. Good luck.

hey, i had the same problem and i fixed it. i took the battery out and saw the 4 golden tabs behind the battery. there was two tabs that u could pull out. i lightly pulled them out a little bit. the problem was that the tabs wouldnt hit the battery to charge it. thats why it put the tri colored screen on the front. also my charger fit into the charging hole in the phone, but it had to be moved around to much that it did not fit exactly. I have been rough with the charger so it moved the inside of my phone around. i put the charger in the phone and moved it around gently around untill the light lit up on the front at the top by the word at&t. after it was completly charged, i turned it on and it worked perfectly. i hope this helps in whoever may have this problem because i know it sucks!
