Friday 17th of December 2010
Hi there! i tried to update my os and now after the android stays on the screen until it shuts off and that's it. i had no idea these things were as un-user friendly as this. i don't know what im doing, my tablet is generic, however i have its original specs the device had before i tried to update. please help, i'm not dumb i just don't understand how or what these actually do. i updated only because mail and you-tube didn't work. now nothing does. i thought was internet savy, not now.
Camera shuts off when I use the stock camera's flash
Tuesday 09th of October 2012
Hi everyone, I'm new here. But I've read here for quite a while and it seems like a great community so I figured I'd pose a question. I MEANT to write that the PHONE shuts off when I use the stock camera's flash, NOT what's in the title, sorry, typo.. When I use my stock camera's flash it shuts my phone off and I have to do a battery pull. Any ideas what the problem may be? I've tried researching it but have come up with no answer yet..Thanks in advance! Also, do any of you know a Android equal to the IOS app 'Snapseed' , I've searched high and low, I loved the options that app gave like 'black diffusion and soft focus', it was a picture editing app,Thanks again!
Droid X randomly shuts off after Android 2.2.1 update
Tuesday 21st of December 2010
I received the Android 2.2.1 update last Thursday on my Droid X. Later that morning my phone randomly restarted 3 times in the matter of a couple hours. It has been doing this randomly every day since then. Also, when I plug my charger into the USB port of my computer is has started acting funny. The screen on the phone goes black, with text that says something about a data transfer. I can't get the screen to go away, even when I unplug the charger, and after about 3-4 minutes of messing around with it it just shuts off. I have decided that either I am just the least tech-savvy person out there (maybe there is a logical explanation for all of this), or I am having real issues with the phone. Before I take this thing into the Verizon store and ask for help I wanted to see if anybody out there had the same problem as me, or if somebody knows how to help. Thanks!
Android Forums - View Single Post - Support Screen shuts off during phone call
Friday 24th of August 2012
I updated my Vivid to Ice Cream Sandwich a few months ago and this is when my recurring issue started. I'm going to try to describe this as clearly as possible, so I apologize if it's hard to understand. Whenever I place a phone call, the screen shuts off but I have trouble turning it back on to perhaps end the call or enter numbers on a list of options. For example just now, I just reached someone's voicemail and I couldn't turn the screen back on to end the phone call, so I left a message of the awkward sounds of me fumbling to pull out the battery in haste. I know the screen is supposed to automatically turn off when you put it to your ear, but when you take it away from your ear to look at the screen, isn't it supposed to turn back on automatically as well? Well, at least that's what happened when I was still on the previous OS. Anyone know what the problem is? (sorry if I didn't articulate it understandably)
Wifi shuts off on update
Thursday 12th of April 2012
I've rifled around the internet (including most of the major android forums) and I haven't found a solution to this issue. That said, if I've missed the magic thread just point me in the right direction... Anyway, I'm the proud new owner of an Opti S, but I'm having wifi issues. From what I understand one should be able to update the firmware (and theoretically the PRL/profile, but I haven't confirmed that) over wifi. My particular problem is that the wifi shuts off when any of the update options are selected from the menu. In an effort to save some on the monthly bill I have data disabled. (Ting ftw) So obviously with data disabled and the wifi failing the updates simply timeout and do nothing. Has anyone else seen this issue or have an idea on how to fix it? I've tried updating the firmware (even so far as testing custom roms). I've rolled back to stock unrooted and I'm stumped. Thanks!

Phone shuts off when not on charger
Sunday 04th of August 2013
Has anyone else had problems with the evo design shutting off randomly? Its seems to be a battery problem but the battery reads 100% and without the charger shuts off. And just started shutting off with the charger on. Did a factory reset just to make sure it wasnt anything else same problem. If anyone has any ideas it'd help a lot thanks.

phone shuts off like at 70 %
Monday 14th of October 2013
I have an Android touch or My touch. I think I have a problem with my battery. Because my phone will be like fully charged, and after like an hour or so of using it just shuts off. I never tried putting a charger back in the phone right after it shuts off, but when i do get it back on its like on 3% can anyone help? Like K said I'm guessing its the battery. Where can i get a cheap compatible battery for my phone that will last a while. Also where can i get a good cheap charger as well. Also does anyone know where I can get my phone rooted at?
what do i do when my android turns off out of no where fully charged?

tablet won't boot, shuts off by itself
Thursday 06th of February 2014
Hi all, Dave here. I am trying to diagnose a friends tablet. I don't know whom manufactures it, it has no visible markings, just 2.0 megapixel. it is an android operating system. tablet tries to boot, then just shuts off. when I was in it, it was slow and locked up often. When I got it, the screen would flash the android splash screen. it would do this for hours on charge. it took 2 days to get to 80% charge. held power and vol up, or down, don't know which actually worked. next screen was just the word android, then it shuts off. hold power button for 5 or more seconds, same routine. I repair pc's in my spare time, and this lovely piece of work is pretty alien to me. I think the operating system was 126.96.36.199 or something along those lines.Glad I don`t own one.
