Well. I dropped my phone, which is a HTC Dash S60, really bad due to my brother and the power button came out. Is there a way to push something down through the power button hole to turn it on?

Yeah sure. I mean, the rubber/plastic buttons are just padding for the motherboard underneath the keyboard/menu buttons. You should still be able to turn it on/off by pressing down in the spot where the power button was. This is some poor cell phone construction...

Laser printer shuts down immediately


A laser printer that shuts itself down immediately after turning it on indicates either a loose power cable which can be fixed by pushing the power cable in properly or something internal to the printer is causing it to shut down.
If it is shutting down due to something internal, one possability is it has the wrong power going into it. a 110 volt power supply going into a 220 volt printer or the other way round change the supply or find a converter for it. Another possibility is some other component in the machine is failing such as the power regulator board or format board. If it is something internal like this. Replace the printer is really your only option unless it is still under warrantee as replacing parts in most machines nowdays is more expensive than buying a new printer.

Power button wont turn


Soft reset by removing the battery, wait 20 seconds and reinsert.

If this does not solve the problem...
1. Remove the battery, wait for a few seconds, then reinsert the battery to turn off your Merge.
2. Press and hold the VOLUME DOWN button, and then briefly press the POWER button.
3. Wait for the screen with the three Android images to appear, and then release the VOLUME DOWN button.
4. Press VOLUME DOWN to select FACTORY RESET, and then press the POWER button.

If none of this works, get a new phone, hopefully you have the insurance.

I used a standard micro usb charger before reading the manual and the phone is now completely dead. Even with the correct charger now the light won't even come on. I am in shock that the phone is that...


Have you tried a hard reset? Hold the power button and the down button simultaneously and see if the phone turns on. It could be the cable but I think it was more the power supply unit that could have something to do with the glitch.

Stuck in recovery mode


Your device might have broken Volume buttons, due to this, once you turned on your device it will automatically go to recovery mode. Note that recovery mode can only be accessed when the device is powered off, and turning on the device while pressing the power button and volume down will directly go to recovery mode.

Try checking your device volume if it is pressing or pushed down, or better send it to a technician for diagnosis.

There are also several reasons why your device directly go to Recovery mode, either your phone software is crashed or your phone hardware is broken.

I forgot my screen lock password


First im really sorry about that! to fix the issue you must do a hard button reset. if you go to http://www.knowyourcell.com/htc/htc-desire/desire-guides/443117/how_to_hard_reset_the_htc_desire.html
it provides the steps as follows:

Please note that all data will be deleted from the HTC Desire as a result of this procedure. This process does NOT delete data stored on the microSD card. We recommend backing up all of your personal data before proceeding.

  1. Turn the power off. If your HTC Desire is frozen, pull the battery out and reinsert it
  2. Hold the Volume Down button
  3. Press and release the Power button
  4. You are now presented with a menu that allows for Fastbook, Recovery, Clear Storage, and Simlock
  5. Select Clear Storage by pressing the Volume Down button
  6. Press and release the Power button
  7. Now simply confirm your decision: Volume Up for YES and Volume Downfor 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.


i am 100 % sure this will fixya for sure!!

HTC Application Failure, and Phone Shut Off


Sounds like maybe a program corrupted something, my best guess is to just hard reset it. I know its hard losing everything but what the point of saving it if it never works anways. Hold down the power, talk, and end buttons when the phone is off, this should bring up some directions on the screen saying press Volume Up to hard reset the phone.
After thats complete re-download the programs, that should help.
Goodluck!

Broken power butten for htc touch


There is no spring under the power button on this model. Usually the switch which is soldered to the motherboard comes off the board due to dropping the unit or pushing the button using excessive force. Sometimes the switch can just be soldered back to the motherboard, if not then it must be replaced. I have fixed many of this model phone with the same problem. Its common.
