It may be the storage card - if you take the storage card out it will boot up and you can put it back in. - pain in the a## but it may work. Or Try taking the SIM card out, boot it up, turn it off, replace the card, and turn it on again Last resort is a hard reboot to set it back to factory default. reboot system by holding down the two - - keys above the house and arrow while the phone is off. Then you continue to hold while you push the power button on the side for 2 seconds. Should go to white screen then black screen. once at black screen hit the green call button and follow the rest of the prompts.

    To perform a hard reset (Erase ALL your data) on the t-mobile dash hold the two soft buttons down or dash buttons labeled - - then while holding those buttons hold the power button for 2 seconds you will get a prompt to press 0 to reset. Time is of the essence if you miss it try again.

    Edit: Here is a second easier method:

    If you cant get this to work you can navigate through these steps as well:

    Dash Hard Reset


    1. Select Start
    2. Accessories
    3. Clear Storage
    4. Type 1234 in the box
    5. Select YES.

  • Gavin Apr 07, 2008

    Sorry the instructions I gave earlier for the hard reset was incomplete, Here it is complete.

    To do a hard reboot.

    - with the phone powered off
    - press the two soft keys, yes the left and right soft keys which are the two dash keys labeled - -
    - while keeping it pressed, press the power button down
    - keep the power button pressed down for 1 - 2 seconds and then release the power button while still holding down the two soft keys. Keep holding down the soft keys until a black screen appears and prompts appear
    - now release the soft keys and follow prompts
    - if you dont see the black screen with the reset option, pull the battery out, reinsert it and repeat the above steps
    - when you see the black screen with the reset option, press the Send button to confirm the reset.

Hi Gloria,
The first thing you need to do is measure the voltage at the charging socket of the Joystick (outside 2 pins). This will determine a lot of things, so I can guide you further.

Hello! It seems that you have a problem with the laptop charger connector. It maybe in short circuit. You can try to look for some electronic workshop that works with reballing, BGA solder, etc., that might change it. In Portugal we have some, so I think in other countries you can find them to.

Makita battery charger wont charge


If both lights on the charger are flashing it is indicating you have a bad battery and the charger will not charge the battery. The charger has circuitry that tests the battery and if it 'thinks' the battery is defective it will not attempt to charge it. The only way to verify whether it's the battery or charger is to try charging your battery on another charger or try charging another battery on your charger. Most of the time it's a bad battery.

Green and red light comes on when i put battery in charger what does that mean?


Here is the manual:
http://toolboyworld.com/eBay/Ryobi_P120/P120_566_eng.pdf

Red = quick charge
yellow = evaluating
green = charged

CHARGING A COOL BATTERY PACK
If battery pack is within normal temperature range, the red LED on charger will come on.

Red LED should remain on for approximately 1 hour then the green LED will come on. Green LED on indicates battery pack is fully charged and charger is in maintenance charge mode.

Batteries don't charge. I have a new battery, and neither of the old or new batteries work in the charger. I get flashing lights only, sometimes red, sometimes green, but in the end, the battery isn't...


Dust getting in the charger is a problem, Try blowing it out with a moisture-free dust remover, found at most any store. Green flashing means improper power, due to dust or power from the outlet, try a differant wall outlet. Red flashing means the charger or battery is to hot and must cool down before it will charge. The charger will not charge a battery if the lights are flashing. Solid Red light means it is charging and solid green light means it is charged. Plug the charger in first before putting the battery on the charger. If the charger has been droped or hit the floor the coil inside could have broke loose and dammaged the charger requiring it to be replaced.

T mobile dash


This happen to me more than once, the latest today (may 25 08)at 9pm. Tmobile will tell you how sorry they are and that's about it. I am on my second dash and second battery.
Try to hold both top keys (between call green and hung up red) while you are pressing on the shut off switch for 2 seconds. Whe it comes back to life, everything will have erased but supposedly, the phone will be like new.
I am collecting names and emails of people who are fed up with the Dash and Tmobile. Write to me jeanrenoux@hotmail.com
