You should update the 'System' on your phone.
Go to Settings>About Phone
Select 'System Updates' to get your system up to date. This should get you going with Android Market.
You will need some internet connection for this.

My phone comes up with a message about once a week that says "You have not rebooted your phone in several days. you should reboot to keep things working properly". That is what I would try first.

I've had a similar problem. My solution was to install a third party app, which can twick the settings of the audio. You can find lots of apps like this one: How to fix all Audio Speaker Microphone problems in Android Sound About .

The factory reset removed the Google account data from your phone. When first setting up a phone, you pair the phone with a google account. On the off chance that was not the first thing you did after the factory reset, you may have to hard reset it again and then go through setup immediately to pair a Google account with the phone. If you have not paired the Google account with the phone during setup, you will not have Google access. If the setup offers a restore from backup (and you did have backup enabled previously), you can give that a go. It would restore settings.

But before you do that, you could try the following. I don't think they will work for you but the powers that be might smile upon you.

Try entering your user account name and when prompted for a password, enter the word "null". Afterward, set up a new pattern.

Alternatively, The G2/Hero's 'Forgot Pattern?' screen asks you to enter the Gmail address you signed in with and its password.

Here is another trick rather hard to describe as I can't write it in this forum. You know the letter x. Try writing it 3 times before the @ sign in the following two items below.

If you enter and then the password, then it will say it's not right. You need to enter and then it will accept it the password, purportedly.

If you had come here and said "I am going to Root my phone, any advice"? All of the Experts here would have shouted DON'T DO IT!

Rooting programs are written by amateurs, and unfortunately you have seen the result. You have altered the firmware which is the hard written instructions for the phone to boot, much like the BIOS in a computer.

We see your problems on a weekly basis. My standard reply is "don't Root your phone unless you want a paperweight". You now own a paperweight. Buy a new phone, learn the lesson.

i know how it sucks when you purchase a new mobile and you face something like this. But i have an answer for you. i had the same problem last week and i have found a solution from one of my friends. this problem happens when you open many programs at the same time and the programs are stiull running under. To solve the problem go ahead and turn off your G1 mobile for about 30 seconds. it will start working when you turn on your G1. turning off your G1 will close all the programs running under...good luck

You can use motorola V3 charger as an alternative charger,htc charger is difficult to find and expensive as well,i'm also using the same phone as yours and i never had a problem using motorola charger,but if you really want HTC charger,you can go to CITY PLAZA at Quiapo,manila,but not sure of getting original charger,only class A is available,or even go to any mall nearest you,might spot original HTC charger as well.

well obviously the market app wont work until you have an active wireless connection. But it also sounds like the market app is corrupted. Connect your g1 to a wireless network with internet access and then go into settings and tell it to search for updates. That might fix it

You can try to do it yourself, there is a T-Mobile G1 Repair Guide and the parts are available on Ebay. If all elese fails there are third party T-Mobile G1 Repair Services but that can be quite pricey.
