Hi,
theres a common fact that overcharging Revo (leaving it in the docking cradle for continuous charging) will cost the phone to hang or lock up which obviously results in losing your data!..im sorry to say this because theres is no options to come out of this except you have to send it for service by claiming the warranty!!..thank you!!..

On battery or on external power and doing soft & hard reset ain't giving any improvements, better check your warranty.

Htc herm200 can't charge


Hold down the two soft-keys (the ones below the screen) and while you have them held down you poke the reset button with your stylus. You'll then see a message on the screen saying 'press R to reset, X to exit'. Pressing the R key on the keyboard will hard-reset the device. It'll now take a few minutes to reboot and load all of the operator customisation etc.

This procedure will hard reset the HTC TyTN, Vodofone v1605 and all other HTC Hermes variants.

Blackberry RIM went Black!!!???!


I think the reset button is under the battery cover - You may need a paperclip to reset.

Before you do the hard reset have you tried a soft reset -
ALT+RIGHT SHIFT(CAP)+DELETE keys

Phone frozen: The screen just shows boxes of red, green, blue and white.


Just had the same problem. When you take the battery out, leave it out for 4-5 minutes. Then when you put it in and reset while holding the on/off red button, it should start. Mind did. Good luck.

HTC Tytn 11 I got it wet. It was dried out and worked but now the screen is striped red green blue and white with KAIS130 MGF SPL-1.0. OliPof CPLD-8 on the red stripe and Serial at the bottom on the white...


I will assume you bought it on Ebay or the Internet somewhere from the text you say is on the screen.

There is a possibility you have lost the information on the phone and will need to reinstall anything you have added to it since you bought it, but possibly not.

First thing to try is what is called a "Soft Reset". If you have not already done so, take your stylus and press it lightly into the small hole in the bottom of your phone until you feel a light click. Your phone will restart. If it boots up normally, then you are done, and everything is roses again, and your information should be in tact. Yea!

If not, then you would next try a Hard Reset. This step erases any information you might have added to the phone since getting it and puts it back to the factory defaults. There are two buttons below the screen that when working normally say "Calendar" on the left, and "Contacts" on the right. You need to hold both of these buttons down then insert your stylus into the reset hole at the bottom of your phone. You should get a screen saying "Press SEND to restore Factory default. press END to quit." Go ahead and press the Green Send key. Wait for the phone to reboot. Hopefully at this point your phone will be at the initial setup screen. If it is, follow the directions on the screen to finish the setup.

I realize this is not your phone, but the button locations are the same, and the screen should be similar.

Soft Buttons just above Send and End, and Reset Button :

I hope one of these work for you. If not, don't panic yet. There are still other options... Let me know how it turns out.

Palm Treo 700W Smartphone is stuck on speaker phone


Hello,

Soft Reset
A Soft Reset stops all active (or open) programs and "reboots" the handheld. When the Treo powers back up, you'll start with all programs closed and the unit will be ready to use. The soft reset is intended to reset the Treo if it is malfunctioning or has become bogged down.
The Palm Treo 750 can be soft reset by quickly pressing and releasing the tiny red button beneath the miniSD memory card door:
diagram.jpg Hard Reset
A Hard Reset wipes the internal memory and returns the Treo to its factory specs, in effect returning the Treo 750 to the state it was in when you purchased it. All data entered, preferences set or software installed on the Treo after purchase will be lost after a hard reset and will have to transferred or reinstalled via ActiveSync / Windows Mobile Device Center.
power_button.jpg The Palm Treo 750 can be hard reset by pressing and holding the power button (seen left) while at the same time pressing and holding reset button beneath the miniSD memory card door. Press and hold the two buttons until the screen completely fades. When the screen returns, you'll be given the option to "Erase all data." Select Yes to complete the hard reset. The Treo will now be as it was when it left the factory and you can start fresh. You may have to perform a soft reset after the hard reset to get the unit to power on.
