Default HTC Incredible S - GPS never find satellites

Hello
I do not know when it happened, but my GPS in the phone does not work. I turned the GPS satellites and wireless networks for the Environment. GPS logoede stands and flashes as it usually does when it tries, but never stops. It disappears as soon as there is a program open that uses GPS.

I downloaded "GPS Test" from Play (http://goo.gl/OX47b) and it shows nothing, 0 at all. I just tried to "nulstilel of frabriksdata" proceeded successfully.

Someone who has experienced similar or have any tips on what I can try?

Install GPS Test from Mike Lockwood, this app helped me many times

On the app's settings, clear the aGPS data and then load them again.

I meant, your GPS Test app isn't from the dev Mike Lockwood
There may be a difference of effectiveness.

Oh, I see GPSTest is without a blank.

Maybe a GPS antenna problem.
Has the Incredible the GPS antenna in the back cover ? Many HTC phones has.

Then you could clean the contacts.
Maybe a little bending for stronger contact pressure.

You also might google with "incredible s gps antenna problem".

Good luck!
