Make sure your battery is fully charged. Then remove battery, SIM card and any memory card you might have inserted. Clean all the metal (copper) contacts you find on the inside of the battery cover and SIM cover (if any) with methylated spirit on a cotton bud. Replace battery only and try restarting the phone. If successful, turn it off and replace SIM and try turning it on and off. If successful, do the same with the memory card. this can eliminate the problem. If none of the above is successful, you can try a factory hard reset however be mindful that all your data, apps and settings will be deleted and restored to factory state except the stuff you hace on your memory card and SIM, which will not be affected. I guess if you can not restart your phone anyway, there is not much else you can do, so you will only use what is not yours any more... :)
here is what you need to do:
Turn the power off. If your HTC Desire is frozen, pull the battery out and reinsert it
Hold the Volume Down button
Press and release the Power button
You are now presented with a menu that allows for Fastbook, Recovery, Clear Storage, and Simlock
Select Clear Storage by pressing the Volume Down button
Press and release the Power button
Now simply confirm your decision: Volume Up for YES and Volume Down for NO.
If you selected YES, all data including third-party applications will be deleted from the HTC Desire. Once the wipe is complete, the phone will reboot to its factory fresh state.
Since it's broken, im probably sure you arent able to put the button back on or back its original place it was in? Maybe could take a small pin and press down on the power button and maybe it will come on. If none of that works, then try buying a new power button and installing it.
Try doing this. Turn off the unit, remove the battery, press and hold the power button (while battery is out), then put the battery back and turn it back on. If that doesn't work, just repeat the steps including removing the Sim Card. Or turn on the unit without a Sim Card.
You can also try using reset codes but that would reset EveryThing back to default settings which might include losing the settings of your provider which is not recommended. But the initial step is safe to use.
the "soft buttons are right below the screen hold both down then turn
on the phone this will make the phone ask if you want to reset to
default so try removing the batt , mem card and sim card first as this it the last resort you
will lose all changes made to the phone except mem card and sim card
stored items worked on my shadow fine good luck peeps
Yeah, I got the exact problem too with my V9 and I eventually found out that it was about the small button located the right side of it (one of the smart button) it stucked inside and it keept all the other buttons away from working then I opened it and got it done.
Here's how I fixed the damn headset thang on my Nokia.
Take out the SIM card and start the phone *WITHOUT* the SIM card. Wait until the phone's screen says, "insert SIM card." Wait a minute, then re-insert the SIM card, and re-start the phone. Voila, the horrid headset symbol is gone (I hope). Do it a few times if it doesn't take the first time (although, it did on mine).
Hope this works for you, because hell, that headset setting is a real beyatch when you *don't* want it. ;)
It sounds just like a keyboard lock and you need the code to unlock it. though it should be prompting you,
if you push * and # on the same time your keyboard locked. When you press it again, you unlock your keyboard
Your phone’s four-digit unlock code is originally set to 1234 The six-digit security code is originally set to 000000 If you forget your unlock code: At the Enter Unlock Code prompt, try entering 1234 or the last four digits of your phone number. If that doesn’t work, press s and enter your six-digit security code instead. If you forget other codes: If you forget your security code, SIM PIN code, PIN2 code, or call barring password, contact your service provider.
