Default Please Help: Droid screen locked.

I can't get my Droid to respond to unlock.
I've tried turning off and taking the battery out. But still remains unresponsive to touch.

If a battery pull doesn't fix the issue you could try doing a hard reset, if you do a search for "hard reset" you will find instructions. I personally would just return it though because if it happens again and only a hard reset fixes it you will be loading everything onto your phone again and again.

You can hard reset your Motorola Droid if you want clear all of the data off of the device and start fresh. Hereís how itís done.


1. Turn the Droid off. If it wonít turn off, take the battery out then place it back in.
2. Open the keyboard and press the X key while pressing and holding Power. The device will power on. Keep holding the buttons downuntil a yellow triangle appears.
3. Press the Camera and Volume Up buttons at the same time to get to the menu.
4. Use the direction pad to the right of the keyboard to select the Format option.




If that doesn't fix your screen issue then take it back to a store.

Smile How I unlocked mine

I was able to unlock my screen by doing a slight variation on shocker's instructions.

Open keyboard and press 'x' and power simultaneously.
There will be a menu where there is a Power Off option.

Use the arrow keys and select Power Off. Hit the carriage return key.
(Ok didn't seem to work) The Droid powered off all the way and when I powered it on again the screen unlock worked now.

I never took the battery out.
