BUT THIS DOESNT WORK EITHER!PLEASE. I need help.edit: I'm on a T-Mobile Mytouch (LG E739 with Android 2.3.4). Mods please don't move my topic there cause that board is dead.edit2: I can feel the buttons vibrating but still nothing is happening

Should I get the Evo-Pre User
Sunday 27th of June 2010
Hello, just wanted to ask a a quick question since I'll be spending some much needed money. My Pre just broke, the power button doesnt work anymore, i have to squeeze it real hard to get it to work. i know theres a mod to fix it, ive tried it, it still isnt the same. Im really picky when it comes to something i use all the time. i'm trying to find out its it worth it to keep my Pre(or get it fixed), upgrade to the Evo, or wait for a new Android phone to come on Sprint? Would it be worth the wait? Im a long time Sprint user, and have 3 other ppl on my plan, so im not changing services(no DroidX or iphone4). Plus the rate i get is better due to my discounts.
Mytouch Q wont boot just restarts after error screen
Sunday 13th of January 2013
I need help please!!!!! Deleted an app from titanium backup named weather, and since then my phone doesnt work.... It loads up to the lg screen, then after that the triangle with the exclamation in the middle next to the android screen comes on with the following script: E:Cant find miscE:Cant find miscFinding update package...E:unknown volume for path [SYSTEM:app/weatherwidget.apk]E:Can't mount SYSTEM:app/weatherwidget.apkInstallation aborted.Factory reset FailedRestart factory reset Then when this screen stays on for 5 seconds, it starts back at the lg logo then restarts this whole process over and over again... I tried EVERYTHING...nothing works. The hard reset when you hold the f, and a key along with the volume down and power button doesnt work. ive tried the adb command, that doesnt work because my phone doesnt stay on that long before it restarts, therefore the computer doesnt recognize it, well only for a couple seconds while the error message appears, then it goes away when it restars....VERY frustrating. If theres anyone that has knowledge of what to do please help me. ANY

Nexus s 4g problems:Power button does not work/calls dont work unless on speaker - Android Development - Android Forum - A Community For Android Users and Enthusiasts
I'm not sure if this is the right section, so my apologies if it isnt.My phone has recently started giving me problems. About a week ago the power button stopped working, but the volume control buttons will turn on the screen. It automatically boots up when the battery is in if I take it out. When I try to boot into fastboot or anything, the volume control doesnt work for selection. Starting a few days ago, I haven't been able to make phone calls unless its on speaker, otherwise I don't hear anything. My phone is rooted, and it wants to update but I haven't been able to unroot it. Also, at the beginning of the month, it stopped charging unless its on the wall adapter it came with or my laptop. I don't know if that's related.Any help with these problems would be greatly appreciated.
Nexus 4 not working after battery change
Wednesday 08th of October 2014
I changed my battery due to it overheating and generally being poor, but it wouldnt power up afterwards. When I press the power button and down volume button at same time I get to the screen with picture of the green android man with his chest open and it has the 4 choices; start, restart bootloader, recovery mode & power off but when i try to make a selection the power button doesnt respond/work so unable to move forward. At the bottom of screen it says the following; FASTBOOT MODEPRODUCT_NAME - makoVARIENT - mako 16GBHW VERSION - rev_11BOOTLOADER VERSION - MAK0Z30dBASEBAND VERSION - M9615A-CEFWMAZM-2.0.1701.03CARRIER INFO - NoneSERIAL NUMBER - XXXSIGNING - productionSECURE BOOT - enabledLOCK STATE - Locked I have put the old battery back in but returns to the same state so it is not in a good state. I also tried a fastboot oem unlock but cant continue/go ahead with it due to the same issue, power button wont respond (although it is known to be working as I used it to bring the device out of hibernation (as stated above)? Sorry if I have missed out anything important I've not
[Q] Lg g2 issues. Keyboard wont always type, Screen doesnt alsways turn on.
Friday 24th of October 2014
I've been having these 2 issues for a while now and I have a feeling they may be connected. Both issues happened with stock and with paranoid android. I thought that Greenify was the culprit because they seemed to go away for awhile after I uninstalled it but both issues returned at about the same time. Basic Info:LG G2 VS980paranoid android 4.4rootedxposed Issue 1: ScreenMy screen will sometimes not turn on. Neither the power button or knock on will work. It seems completely random when it will and wont turn on. The notification light will shine if I have a notification but the screen itself wont turn on. I can usually turn it on again if I wait a few or minutes or if I restart the device by holding down the power button. Issue 2: KeyboardI will open an app (hoverchat, chrome, snapchat, ect) and they keys will respond to my touch and the spell checker will show what I'm typing but nothing will show up in the text box. If I type nonsense eventually some of it will show up and I can continue typing. Clearing the data and cache of the keyboard didnt help. Usually I have to quit and r
