Hey guys,

a while ago, the HTC One V of a friend of mine just shut down and now it doesn't start anymore I tried to reset it by pressing the power button and the vol down button for about 10 seconds, but it just does nothing. If i connect it to the charger, the led is blinking orange, also if I connect it to the PC it's blinking, but the PC doesn't recognize it and the screen stays black. I also tried to restart it while holding it under a bright light, but that also doesn't work.
It wasn't rooted and the bootloader was locked and stuff, he just used it normally.
I hope you can help me, the things I found in the forums didnt work

Is it still under warranty?

Question
I'm in a similar situation. got the phone from a friend, who has not used it in almost a year. i charged it for a long-long time, but it still doesnt turn on. tried hard reset, still nothing. when i connect it to the pc it installed the correct drivers, etc. but i tried to connect it via the all in one toolkit and it did not recognize the phone. utorrent recognized it as a usb disk. really strange. is there any chance of recovering it or send it to htc? (which would not be a cheap solution without the warranty)
