HTC touch will not turn on

I am currently having a HUGE problem with my HTC. I went to charge the battery when I went to bed when I woke up in the morning the Blue and Red lights (at the top of the phone) were solid I went to turn the phone on and it would not turn on. I tried to remove the battery I tried a soft reset nothing seems to be turning it back on, I have had it attached to the USB cable and attached to my computer for over two days now and still nothing
I am not able to do a hard reset because the Send anddisconnect lights will not come on at all

Please help I am lost without my phone

  • jpullara Aug 07, 2008

    I have the SAME problem! when i plug it in the wall charger i get a constant red light. when i plug it in my computer, i get "...usb device has malfunctioned..." i just threw it in the freezer so we'll see what happens. I managed to get the orange charging light once however. I took out the battary and unplugged it from the charger, and i held the power button for about 35 seconds. i plugged the battary back in, and plugged in the charger and the charge light came on. however when i went to turn on the phone an hour later, nothing happened.

Any ideas on how to repair this phone would be greatly appreciated, John

    I have had a problem with it freezing so have been doing a soft re-set several times a day. Last time it froze, did a soft re-set and now nothing. No lights on when re-charging. Completely dead! It is not the battery as this works in another HTC.

    What to do, any help appreciated!

  • michelle_mar Jan 20, 2009

    My HTC will show the red light as though it is charging however, it will not turn on after 8+ hours of showing that it is charging. I tried doing a soft reset and nothing happend, like the soft reset I cannot do a hard reset because the Send and Disconnect buttons will not light up.

    The battery is currently in the freezer, I have heard that helps. Does anyone have any other tips?

Dear Muppets.

Does no one of you realize that when a phone or some other electrical equipment has serious malfunctions it is often more then just hard reset or softreset.

I have an HTC touch until one day I am sure I dropped it on the floor

Then woowwwww all of a sudden it started acting up.
Be honest.

These are very delicate phones and not bricks.
They are not as simple or reliable as a basic phone due to the fact that they have complicated systems like Windows.

Aynone ever heard of Windows crashing a PC.
Woowww you sound surprised.

I cna easily make a lot of money making somthing that looks fancy but that works like ****.

Think of some ideas.
Windows, HTC phones or similar. Any modern equipment made in China

This dont understand why a phone whic cost tihs much money can't bemade reliable.

Well come to think of it
Selling 1 million+ of them at a few hundred dollars each gives me an idea.

PROFIT ABOVE QUALITY.

And still you fools fall for it.

Yes the phones looks cool.

Any idea why DELL have been so big for so long.
They produce PC's and laptops that still work reliably after 5 years.

I am typing this on a Dell 8600 my business work horse
I use it for webdesign, VB programming, hardware testing

And trow it in my back everyday and in the boot of my car when I don't need it.

And it has never yes NEVER given me idea trouble.

I have tried a few other laptops
FUJITSU SIEMENS TABLE PC
Worked for 3 months then turned off and never came back on
guess what happend to it
It sold it for parts for 100 Euro

Also tried a brand new ACER.
Send it back to supplier as it kept turning of while doing remote access work.

If it aint broke dont fix it.
If it is .................. BIN

Look at hte amount of hours and time you have already spend on trying to figure out why your phone does not come on or work properly.

You would have had a lot more fun with your new Nokia by now

I personally would recommend LG Touch phones.
I now a 19 year old who had it and he threw it all over te place.
NEVER a problem with it and working like new.

Well if you know that LG are working with PHILIPS then you know why they are so reliable.

QUALITY above PROFIT.

and then still plenty of profit to make good money doohh

Solution is as follows:

How else you think they are going to feed 1 billions hungry chinese
By making durable products??

Not sure the hungry chinese would like that iea
years ago there used to be a saying going around Europe which was "MADE in HONG KONG"
which meant cheap rubbish

and HONG KONG sold the idea to china

HTC (how) to (Trick) ( Customers

Ever wondered why porsches and ferraries are not made in china?
And why you always leave McDonalds hungry after having spend a small fortune
All their meat is made in china frm SOJA beans

Hope you guys tried the hard reset, since nobody commented on it directly..hold the Send and disconnect (green and red) buttons and the reset button, all at the same time. (do the send/disconnect first, then put the stylus in the reset button (bottom of phone). and hold all 3 until it reboots and gives you a message. Then you have to press 'action' button which is the ok/enter button to reset.

If this STILL doesn't work, try ordering a new replacement battery

If you can't use google, try here

Same for me, I chucked my htc touch in the freezer for an hour or so and took it out, worked great for about an hour then I got the white screen of death again. So if I keep repeating it until I find the real problem it works!!

There may be a physical issue with your logic board. You can get the part at HTC touch Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to put in the part at How to open the HTC touch.

Borrow a battery from someone else. Place it restart the phone. Shutdown, now place your batter back. Worked for me!

Posted on Jan 08, 2010

You don't have to put the hole phone in the freezer, Just put your battery for an hour then take it out let it cool down and the chargeit normaly, after that the phone will turn on

Posted on Sep 22, 2008

Hard Reset required - hold the send and end buttons at the same time while holding the soft reset button in with the stylus. Will reset to factory settings and get you your device back, but you will lose ALL data and settings.

Posted on Sep 12, 2008

After trying everything logical I decided to think outside the box and chucked my htc touch in the freezer for two hours. Took it out, gave it an hour to dry out and plugged it into the charger and switched it on -- and it turned on. Only sharing what worked for me...

My HTC mobile not going to on after pressing power button and on connection of charger it is showing red LED. Same there here. I woke up this morning and my phones just dead. Even if i connect the charger...


Remove the battery then connect the charger without the battery. Then hold down the power button for a few seconds. The red light may come up for a quick second during this process.

Don't remove the charger. After the red light goes off then insert the battery and check if the light turns amber or orange.

Leave it in orange or amber light state for about 2 minutes. After that, try to turn it on. If it turns on then it is resolved. If not then there is a hardware problem with your phone and it needs to be checked at any HTC Service Center.

My HTC Touch Diamond got switched off automatically for the first time and i am unable to switch it back on again.. Tried everything like removal of battery, charging it but even signs of charging are not...


Is there any changes made to the HTC recently? Like upgrading the ROM? If not, you need to send the HTC to the manufacturer and have them test the battery first and other connections inside the phone.

I checked some forums and it seems that this is a common problem. I think the problem has something to do with the firmware. You may ask the manufacturer to upgrade the firmware of your HTC once you send it. And I believe that it will help you to fix the problem.

Thank you and good luck!

Not able to boot as well


It seems that you have hardware problems with your phone, if you can't charge it or keep it from restarting when you do turn it on. I would recomment bringing it back to wherever you got it. They will be able to better diagnos what is wrong with the phone.

Blackberry Pearl will not turn on but light keeps blinking red


Do not turn on the phone again before taking out all trapped moisture. Take out the battery, sim card, etc. You will need to wrap each piece in newspaper, the phone and battery and then put in a rice container and wait at least 24 hrs. The newspaper and rice will eventually absorb the moisture. I hope this helps!
