Droid won't power on w/o battery pull, any ideas?
I've having an issue with my Droid and I'm hoping the experts on this forum can help. The problem is that every time my droid is restarted or powered off, it's very difficult to power on, often requiring a battery pull for an extended amount of time. However, once the phone is up and running, everything works fine again (until I reboot it).
I've tried the following things to try and solve the problem:
- Wipe all data, partitions, cache
- New battery
- Tried various recovery images
- Eventually did a full RSDLite wipe using the latest FRG83G to back to "full stock"
None of that helped so my assumption is that the hardware itself it to blame (eg. a bad capacitor or voltage regulator). However, before I completely give it up for "dead" I was wondering if any of the experts hear has any ideas...
