    My external button is stuck down, and when I press the power button to wake my phone up it thinks that I am pressing both at the same time. So the phone goes into the Hboot screen, where I cannot choose a function. (because the volume button is stuck down position.) I have to remove the battery and wait about an hour or so then re-insert the battery and pray that it loads up. What can I do to stop this from happening? Or is there a way to control the Hboot screen other than using the volume button?

    Which phone do you have? It may be easy to loosen a screw or two and freeing the volume button, or even replacing it completely. I assume you have tried un-sticking it with a piece of paper or other slender object.

    I have the HTC Inspire 4g, and Yes I have tried everything including a q-tip with alcohol.
