Default Dead phone

Well here's my scenario. My M8 is completely stock. While doing a profile update the phone froze. After 3-4 minutes I pushed the power button. The screen shut off and that was it. Now I can't even get the little light to come on when charging it. Any ideas folks

If it is still in your 14 day period return it, other wise use htcs support

Try holding volume up and down + power, can take up to 2 minutes. If not return it.

Mine did the same thing. I had to send it to HTC. My replacement is on its way. Turnaround is about a week from the day you send it.

I'm not sure as to what happened, but in the morning about 12 hrs after it happened I put it on the charger and the light came on. It was blinking do I let it charge and now it's OK. The phone does notify me that it did an abnormal restart and that it wanted to send a report to htc.
