Re: Phone Won't Turn On
Similar problem here. My Sensation 4G was working as usual -- not great, but same as always -- and the screen suddenly went black as I was moving it from one charger to another, as I do a few times every day. (Same chargers I've used for a very long time. The phone won't stay on very long when anything's running on it if it's not plugged in.) I plugged it in to the charger as usual, and the charge light came on but won't stay on; seems to light up (orange, never green) and go off at regular intervals of maybe 10 or 15 seconds, though I've never seen it do that before. The phone won't turn on at all. I couldn't call it from a landline, either -- straight to voicemail, no ring. I've tried a hard reboot, finally just pulled everything out and put it back in: battery, SIM card, SD card, the works. Nothing. Won't turn on. Now what? I've been tempted to smash it with a sledgehammer for quite a while now anyway, but will continue to restrain myself if replacing the battery might help. Or anything else. Has anyone managed to fix this? Please please hope hope? Is this about my death threats? (To the phone, I mean. Just the phone.)
Oh, yeah -- I upgraded to ICS yesterday. Probably significant. I guess. But I saw improvement for an entire day before it quit on me.
