Default Help - One X will not stay on

Right guys,

I was just updating some apps on my One X, left it to its business and came back and it had turned off, so turned it on and it seems to load to the lock screen and then the screen goes blank and the phone turns off.

I have had it on charge (mains), tried the recovery, that doesn't help and I have tried a factory reset (when you hold the power and volume button) that doesn't work either.

Every time, just about gets to the lock screen freezes, goes blank and turns off.

It is totally stock software and hardware.

Locked to EE (Orange) network in the UK

Any help please?

Mike

Sorry, it is totally stock, not rooted or anything like that.

Just edited my first post too, sorry I was in a rush when I wrote it.

More info:

I have noticed that sometimes the little LED flashes red then green then pauses and repeats. I have seen this is an overheating problem?! The phone feels cool/warm to the touch, I know when playing the odd game the back of the phone gets really warm and it's no where near as warm as it can get.

More info:

Had it on charge overnight from the mains and it doesn't appear to have taken any charge, when it loads the lock screen it will show the battery level and when I press the power & volume buttons it tell me the battery level is too low.

Thanks again!

Mike

I've been having the same kinds of problems for months now.

I only use my OneXL for app testing fortunately, if I needed it as a normal phone I'd have given up and bought something new.

It often reboots after an hour or 2, even if it's doing "nothing", not even running any app after a restart.

Maybe it's overheating or something, but it seems more random to me. I was going to say that smacking it a bit doesn't cause any problem, but I just tried it now and it died. So maybe a PCB is cracked or there's some cold solder joints.

And yeah, the phone acts like the battery is dead. Again tonight I tried to boot it several times before it started up OK. It can end up dead but "powered" so I have to remove USB plug and hold power down 10-20 seconds to boot again.


I dunno, to me the phone is just broken, in effect.

I have had this same problem in the past with mine. Try disassembling it and pulling the battery.. then reassemble and see if that works, or could be a faulty power button

Hmm.

I just updated with the latest RUU for the HBoot or whatever, and it looks like the reboots may have stopped !

Crosses fingers for luck...
