    Hello gurus in the house,

    So i got this HTC Desire 728 dual sim device from someone from overseas, it actually came in with other goods and when i plugged it into a power source it immediately come up but rather than booting to the home screen it brought up this screen(1st picture), then when i click(using the power button) to select any of the options, it doesn't responds and once i shut down the phone and plug it into the power source, it immediately powers up to the same screen. Even when i plug the device to my laptop, it doesn't even show if anything is actually connected to my laptop

    Please gurus in the house what can i do to make this phone boot to the home screen so that it can be used.

    Thanks in advance for the help

    In order to post an image you will need to be a registered member of the forum. It sounds like the device is booting to the recovery menu. See this link for instructions on how to join Android Central.

    Welcome to Android Central! You can see the OP's screenshot in this other thread: https://forums.androidcentral.com/sh...=1#post6853682

    It's possible the Volume Down button is stuck in a pressed position, which would make the phone think that you're trying to boot into the bootloader every time you power the phone on: https://www.hardreset.info/devices/h...otloader-mode/. Or, since the phone is 5 years old and clearly damaged, it could just be that the motherboard is damaged (or that the firmware is corrupt).
