Everything is working fine except the operating system (firmware). A clear case of corrupted firmware. Please get the firmware reinstalled. And you will find that all your problems have vanished. The reason could be a virus or incorrect switching off or powering it on on low battery when the phone switches off on its own. Anything. But reinstalling is the answer.

My G1 screen goes blank when i close it


First try SOFT RESET

1) Turn Off the Phone
2) Remove Battery
3) Remove Sim Card
4) Put battery and sim card again
5) Turn On the phone
6) Press Menu
7) Factory Data Reset (Remember that: This action will reset the phone to its initial factory state, erasing all data and wonloaded applications, so BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP first you try this).
Press "reset phone"


IF STILL NOT WORKING TRY:HARD RESET
1) Turn off the Phone
2) Press HOME + POWER KEYS (keep them holding for about 25 secs)
until you see a screen with a phone and a triangle.

then

3) SLIDE YOUR KEYBOARD TO OPEN IT
4) press ALT + l ( TO SHOW YOU OPTIONS)
5) Press ALT + W ( TO FORMAT ALL DATA)

Note: When I write the sign + you don't have to press the + sign, it means that you need to press both keys @ the same time.

It sounds like the keyboard connection has come loose. If it is still under warranty then I would have it looked at. If not under warranty and you are comfortable opening it up, you could check the connections.

My G1 phone wont factory reset itself and i dont know what to do, im not sure if i can still return my phone and get a new one because i had it since March 13,2009


Have you tried a reset using the hardware buttons? To perform this, you need to turn off the phone first. While it is off, press and hold the home key and the power key at the same time. Keep holding the buttons until you see a screen with a triangle and an exclamation point in the middle. Once you see the triangle, let go of the buttons and open the keyboard. Press ALT+W at the same time, and the phone should reset.
