    So, last night, with 45% charge and not rooted at the time, my phone magically turned itself off. It's an HTC One (M7), bought new from EBay (so no warranty) only four months ago. Since then, the phone has decided not to work as a phone (can't receive or make calls or texts, or use data), and now this. I'm getting frustrated...

    I have tried the following:
    1) Pressed the Power button for 20 seconds up to 2 minutes
    2) Pressed the Power and Up buttons for 20 seconds up to 2 minutes
    3) Pressed the Power and Down buttons for 20 seconds up to 2 minutes
    4) Pressed all three buttons for 20 seconds up to 2 minutes
    5) Removed the SIM holder and blew out all the dust
    6) Shined a bright light on the light detectors and then held the buttons for various iterations
    7) "Charged" the phone overnight through the wall
    8) Plugged the phone into a computer with the drivers installed, and then tried holding the buttons for various iterations

    For all of these, nothing happened. No sounds, no LEDs, no nothing. The phone is a brick; it's a pretty and expensive paperweight.

    I know we're all beating a dead horse here, but other than taking the phone apart, does anyone have any other suggestions? I have called a service center that specializes in HTCs, but if I can fix this myself, that would be awesome. Thanks!

    My father had to plug his phone in and press some of the buttons. He doesn't remember which exactly, but his phone is currently working for him. We aren't sure if plugging it in helped, but it may have.

    I had the same issue the first time it happened I emailed HTC and they were no help. Followed the above directions and it turned back on. It is now the third time it has happened and it will not turn back on. I called HTC and they said even though I contacted them before my warranty was up the first time, it is now 15 days over the warranty and they wont fix it or replace it. They also said that no one has ever reported this issue before me. If someone has proof they got a replacement for this issue, please share it. I told them about this post and they said no one reported it to them so its not an issue they can help me with. I will never buy HTC again!!!!

    I kept.holding down the power button and after 8 seconds the phone would vibrate and do nothing else. After awhile it stopped.vibrating after that duration, and when I plugged it in and it started charging. I was able to turn it on and it's working perfectly. The battery was drained about 30%
    Your advice helped me get my mom's phone back on. I assume this is just a way to force the phone to turn on? Either way thank you sir!

    Yeah it just did that for me. I tried the hold power and volume at first it didn't work and didn't even vibrate but now I just did it again and held it in for like almost a minute while looking at everyone's comments and it worked! It vibrated finally and the screen turned on like as if you had your phone powered up and you wanted to restart it so it worked. This has happened to me many times before and I have only had it for about 2-3 weeks. The last times I tried plugging it in it didn't work except once and I also tried holding power button and it had only worked once and the very last time which was about 3-5 days ago it just turned on by its self so ..... I mean I don't know really but this worked for me. I hope this helps!

    Yesterday morning my Unrooted Sprint m8 randomly rebooted while the battery was at %100. After shutting down the phone was stuck on the boot screen that shows "HTC" for a few minutes until it turned off completely. The phone is completely unresponsive to inputs as well as charging. When plugged in to a wall port the phones charging light does not come on. But when i plug it into my laptop I get a ding from the laptop meaning that it is detecting something. In looking for an answer I figured out that this might have been a result of my battery "discharging". I connected it to the proper charger several times for several hours and no dice. I have also heard the suggestions and done the following; held power + up buttons, held power + down buttons, held all three buttons for 2 minutes, none of these solutions work for me but they have for other people. My phone is still in a state that appears to just be dead. Although when you hold the Power button + Vol Up + Vol Down for about 2 min 30 sec while on a charger or plugged into a computer you get a flash of orange light quickly from the charging indicator. When connected to the lptop and this is done I can hear the phone disconnect and immediately reconnect to the laptop as if the laptop discovered something. Can I please get some help here this is awful and is ruining my week.

    Similar problem here, except mine doesn't even vibrate. Appears to be completely dead, even though I know it is charged.

    Totally worked for me. Thanks! I have a HTC M8 mini and this is the second time in two days it happened to me. First time it worked with only pluging it into a wall socket, but the second time, just a minutes ago, it didn`t work, so I tried the power button + volume up for about 10-15 sec and it worked immediately. So thanks guys! Letting you know if this bug comes back again.

    P.S. Since for some reason quote post wont work, I was referring to the "power + volume up button" problem fix...
