Plugged in my phone to charge last night and woke up this morning and unplugged it. I noticed green LED was not turning off even after unplugging but figured it'd just go away. Drove to work and it was still on so I decided to restart to see if that fixed it. Well, now it WONT TURN ON! Ive held the power button down for about 60 seconds, tried power+up/down volume rocker and am getting no results. If I plug the phone in to my usb on my computer, the LED does not turn on either. Any suggestions? I think i may have to make a trip down to the ATT store today

Wanted to update, had to go to ATT and they declared the phone DOA. They seemed to think there was a surge when I was charging it. I was using the OEM charger and everything. Was two days out of the return period but they were awesome and gave me a brand new device anyway. This is the first time this has happened with any phone ive owned (that I havent dropped/soaked). Really hope this one lasts because it's beautiful!

Same thing happened to me 2 days ago. I rebooted the phone and it never came back on. 2 days old and dead. No charge led, nothing. Returned it store.

Were you rooted? S-off? It's most likely hardware related but trying to eliminate any other possibilities. Thank goodness for AT&T s return policy.

i know your location says Arizona, but i had to ask;
it was there any thunderstorm or lightning in your area? is your charger was connect to wall outlet, or extended cord? does your charger still working?

There have been no thunderstorms for a while, and it was plugged into the wall with the oem charger. The charger still works but I'm not using it at the moment since I'm being parinoid.

The phone was rooted/s-off with the released HTC kernel modified for R/W. Stock Rom and everything.

I'm just glad it happened within the 14 days. I have owned 12 HTC phones and administered another 20+ and have never had one die before. I guess my turn was up!

Got a new one earlier. All is well again

That might be the reason.... Same thing happened with me while back with my HTC sensation. after installing a custom kernel, I woke up in the morning and my phone was completely dead, no charge led , no vol+ -. Nothing. I took the battery out for 10 minutes and then the phones worked again. After one hour it dead again. So I had to install stock ruu again.
