Re: Phone will not turn on

Your firmware is probably messed up a bit - you will need to redo a complete flash - but not with usb cable - you will need proper equipment like JAF - but you don't need to spend $300 for a tool - we can fix it for you for under $30

Similar thing happened to mine recently and I found the following fix:
Press and hold the "volume down" button then press and hold the "power" button.
Hope this works for you as well.

I put my U5i to charge and when I woke up in the morning it was shut down and I can't turn it on...In two words the phone died.

Did you drop the phone in water recently? Did you get it wet in the rain? Apart from the likely possibility that the phone is actually damaged/battery damaged, this happens if the power button gets damaged. When you put the phone to charge, in the middle of the night the power button "acted" as if it was pressed and held and the phone turned off. Now when you press the power button, nothing happens because the power button is damaged.

Take it to a repair shop and check the power button for damage. It is replaceable and should not cost a lot.

Does your phone have a removable battery? If yes then you might be in luck. If not, then just take the phone to repair shop and get the power button checked and repaired.

If battery is removable I know that it is possible to turn on the phone this way:
1) Plug in the charger to the phone
2) Remove the battery and insert it immediately. Do this multiple times and the phone should turn on without having to press the power button.
Hope that works.

You can do Hard Reset for formatting your phone without asking for a code.

4. Now long press * 3 and call button (asterisk, 3 , call button) simultaneously then POWER the phone ON.(keep hold the three given buttons) while the phone is in progress in booting,you can release the power button now but keep holding the three buttons,wait until the phone open and ask for the country selection,that's the time you can release the button now.

If the method does not work,repeat the procedure because you might not press some given keys.
Now your phone is in Default settings.

This is absolutely working....

Does my phone have to fully charge before i can use it again?

No, try and remove the battery again. wait a few minutes.
Now replace the battery, plug the phone in, now press and hold the call button which is the on button for 10 seconds and see if it powers up.

Any more questions just ask.

Sidekick 3 Problem

okay i have a sidekick 3 as well and what you need to do is put the paper clip in the hole again and hold the power button at the same time for approximately 3 seconds. This is a hard reset. Now the bad part is that this will reset all of your data back to factory default. If you need further assistance or this does not work click the ask me button next to my name and we can work on it from there. Thanks.

Phone won't turn on

You may need a new battery. Also, hold the power button in for at least 10 seconds before letting go. The RAZR has a bad habit of not completely turning on unless you hold it in long enough.
