Question about HTC Touch P3450 Smartphone

It appears it went dead?

I had just made a phone call and placed the screen into sleep  mode. Now I can not even get the screen to reactivate or power down the phone using the power button. I have also tried the soft reset feature and this didn't work either. I have also tried removing and installing both the battery and the storage card. This didn't work either. So what is there to try next as the battery indicated a full charge prior to the phone going dead.

Re: It appears it went dead?

KNUT solved the problem by doing a complete battery discharge charge cycle. If your are familiar with Ni Cad (nickel cadmium) batteries they build up a memory from the charging cycle and go dead just like the phone did. To correct this problem I did a full cycle on the battery ( i.e. discharge followed by a recharge). The lithium ion battery used in the phone is suppose to be less likely to acquire battery memory. I believe the battery on my phone did just that; build a battery memory from the charging. Having done the battery cycle the phone returned to service. I then proceeded to shut down all none essential operating programs as Guest described. The phone has now been trouble free for several days working as advertised.

Re: It appears it went dead?

In the top right corner of your phone is the task manager. When your phone is using to much memory it is possible for your phone to go unresponsive. My suggestion would be to make sure you check this once in a while and verify your phone isn't using to much memory. Also make sure your phone settings are set to shut down programs whenever you hit the "X" to shut down that prog. I've also found the best way for me to get my HTC to resopnd after this happens (going unresponsive) is to take out the bettery. This way you dont have to do any kind of system reset, hard or soft.

  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.

  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears

More resets:

1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears

How do I find if my iPod touch battery is dead?

<p>When the iPod touch battery dies, you cannot do anything with the device. You will receive a warning on the screen of the iPod touch, when 5 percent of the battery turns on the device. Connect the device to a power source as soon as possible to load and prevent the battery goes dead. When the battery dies, the unit will shut down and will be connected to a power and charged before you can use <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Press the iPod touch "Sleep / Wake" button, located along the upper side of the machine. If your iPod does not care, this is an indicator that the battery is dead. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect a charging cable to charge your iPod and connect the USB cable to a power of high power. High-power USB ports directly on your computer tower or, if the hardware usually found in the tower on the monitor, the monitor itself. The iPod touch screen shows a big red battery icon on the far left of the icon, indicating that the battery was empty. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Press the "Sleep / Wake" to see if the iPod is connected. If so, check the battery life, looking at the battery icon in the upper right corner of the screen. When the icon appears white, the battery is full when the icon is half black, the battery is almost dead, and if the battery is almost dead, you will receive a warning. If the iPod does not start, the battery is completely dead. In this case, your iPod into electronics store and have the battery replaced. <br />

Hello, have a Palm 755p Treo screen just keeps flashing

There are multiple reasons for the phone to go into an endless loop.

Fix #1 - Soft Reset - Take out the battery. On the back of your phone, pop the cover off, remove battery, place battery back in and it will show each screen once and power on normally.

Fix #2 - Hard Reset - To do a hard reset, hold the power button while you replace the battery and then release it when the Palm logo appears.

Fix #3 - Hammer

My mobile is dead

I just had this happen to me yesterday. I fought with my phone for about 3 hours removing the battery and trying to restart it. It would take about 5 minutes for it to finally boot and once it did the touch screen would not work. So I did a hard boot and within 5 minutes my phone was back to normal. I lost all my contacts but I just did a restore with the backup software. To do a hard boot hold down the red and green buttons on the front of the phone and push the reset button on the bottom of the phone with the stylus. The reset button is on the right side of the power/usb plug. As I said my phone was back to normal in just a few minutes.

After sitting for a while............

I think your phone is going into to keyguard mode. Push the Red power button on the top right of the keyboard. Should come up with a keyguard lock screen at the botton of the screen. Push the center button on the 5-way navigation and you phone should function normally until it goes into to keyguard again. You will find the settings under preferences to either turn keyguard off or to adjust the time on it.

Dead - no response

Hi, I am looking for a battery related problem solution on my own Axim X51v, but it is different than yours. One thing I wanted to share with you is that I know if the battery cover lock button is not in the locked position (slid to the right) it activates the "battery door switch". I have occasionally received error messages on the Axim when I turn the screen on and it has missed sounding an alarm. it will say "the battery door switch was open, so the system was put into "sleep mode" to preserve data from being lost" or something like that. So I believe that the position of the latch is crucial. In my case, I think the switch gets dirty. When I get the warning, I slide the switch back and forth a few times and then it stops bugging me for sometimes several months.

So, if you do not have the cover on, then your latch is probably open, and the door switch will be sensed as open. I am not sure what Sleep Mode really does, but I'll bet it will make the Axim appear dead. At the very least, try sliding that latch back to the right. However, I would replace the door, because only friction actually holds the battery in place unless the door is on. It could fall out when you least expect it. Then I think you would lose any unsaved data, and if your internal backup battery was not up to the task, you could lose everything. I hope this info helps you out.

I'll go post my own problem now.

Screen light doesn't turn off

Check your display settings. Settings, Phone, Display: Check that Light Timeout is set (I have mine setup for 20 seconds). This should do the trick. If you wish to conserve yet more battery power, set "sleep mode" to on and set a power saver timeout (mine is set to 1 minute). good luck.
