So i have a big problem. Lets start from the beginning.
  • 1. At first have done nothing weird, just normal phone usage (browsing) while charging. When it has come to 100% charged, after few moments the boot screen suddenly appeared. I removed the battery and tried to restart the phone but phone screen was black, i left it like this for few minutes (switched off) and then again connect phone to charger and turn it on and screen was somehow alive.
  • 2. So i have decided to backup all programs with titanium backup and when backuping was in progress the screen stuck/dies again.
  • 3. I restart phone again in to bootloader (thinking it was something wrong with the rom) relock bootloader and instal stock ruu. And screen is steel dead. When the phone starts up only vibrates and you hear a boot sound from stock rom. And when i connect it to charger (switched off) it takes a few seconds before the LED turns red. Before that I think that is immediately activated (i'm just thinking).

So.. is the possibility that the screen died or is a mistake in the software?

Thanks in advance.

Question
Maybe it overheate, because you used your phone while charging, my sister had a similar problem, the motherboard overheate or something,she then get a replacment. Or maybe u should try another battery, because when i had my previous phone the DHD i had similar problem,and after replacing the battery everything was OK. I hope you find a solution to your problem. One more guestion ,what Rom did you used when that problem occur.

No screen is dead, so i cant go to cwm. It is possible yes, but only pressing butons(vol. down + power) but no visible image/screen
The proof that cwm works is successfully locked BL and installed stock eu ruu (for warranty )
..so device starts normal when i push power button, stock boot sound plays, bottom buttons light up, but no picture

I was planning to do this after screen "died" first time, but when i run backup proces with titanium backup, the screen died again in the midle of backup proces so "I had hands tied". Since then the screen aint working. So only possible choice was pressing buttons to get into bootloader and lock it and install stock ruu.

Edit:
Dont know why the screen has died after device charged to 100%, some scroling in menu was procided, then htc boot logo appears (like device wants to restart, but ain't working). So i turned it off ( removed the battery) and turned it on again, then my non working screen story starts..

Sorry to hear about your phone. Mine died one day for no reason too. I managed to get mine replaced though. For the price tags. I think these phones should be better made. Maybe we should all.complain to HTC about the build quality of this device.
