well...this kinda ruined my night yesterday...I went to a concert yesterday around 8 and my phone had 70% and I was checking facebook or something like that and without no notification or warning it froze and turned off on me. I figured it was a normal freeze..and I attempted to turn it back on and nothing happened. Went to my car to try to charge it and nothing. Not even a charging light. A day has passed after the concert was over (could not take pictures, thanks htc..) and now the "dead battery symbol" comes up and the orange light keeps BLINKING..to my understanding it means that it is not charging? What could it be..anybody could help me out .maybe a soft reset? no charging it for a couple of minutes?

Anything would help. Thanks..

Possibly try holding the phone under a light and press the power button?

Mine froze up on me last week during a power cycle. I had to hold the power button about 2 mins (if not longer) before it finally responded and rebooted. I was getting my coat to take it back to the store, holding the power button the entire time, then bang, the white screen with the HTC logo finally appeared.
Not a good feeling 😧

Also try holding power and both volume buttons.
I had a random freeze up and that was the only thing that worked...could have been a fluke but it's worth a shot.

+1 for that method. I had a freeze up and that's what I did to get out of it and reboot.

You should be able to hard reset (not factory reset) with just power and volume up, hold for 15 secs. That's how I got out of a broken recovery screen.

Trust me I tried every combination of buttons I could think of lol.
I actually thought it bricked, took me like 5 minutes before it finally booted to bootloader.
