ok so i have a htc one x its not that old i was using it thismorning i put it in my pocket then pulled it straight back out to check the time drew my pattern to unlock it and it crashed :S it tried to reboot itself and stayed on the htc logo so i tried holding the power button down to restart it myself and it went off now it wont come back on at all even if i try power and down buttons someone please help thanks
Just had this EXACT problem, was using the phone, all was fine, then crash, phone went off, rebooted itself, then went off again, and now will no longer turn on. Long pressed every button on the phone, no light when connected to charger either grrrr. This is my second phone due to another fault. Still within the 3 months Orange will cover this one for, but im not happy, its weekend, and im going to be without a phone until at least tuesday. Love the phone, but its becoming a bit unreliable.
So here I am using my phone and it works fine when all of a sudden I go to use it again and it won't turn on. I long hold the power button to repower it and the button lights on the bottom flash but the screen stays black.
I saw a few comments to hook up to a pc... so I did. It managed to recognize my device at first and then stopped. I then went to "Open Devices and Printers" since my pc did recognize that the USB was in and tried that. The menu opened and I clicked on my phone. The "Device Properties" came up and there was a message that said "Device cannot start (Code 10)"
I went into the window into "Hardware" and clicked on "Properties". It showed the status of my device there as well.
I went to the "Driver" tab and came acrossed "Update Driver"
I figured, hey... it wont turn on. Might as well try it. Its either that or buy a new phone...
It actually worked. Whatever was wrong with the phone to make it glitch was corrected and the phone updated. So I pushed down the power button and it powered up.
My settings were all there and functioned normally once the phone completed its power up.
I'm no IT... not by a long shot. I literally started dinking around on the computer with what little knowledge I do have to navigate a pc along with the comments to help guide me.
I hope that the next person that tries this out that it works for you too. I don't have a warranty and would have been screwed. But it worked and I'm glad it did.
Thought I should give back and let everyone know that there is a possible way to fix it.
Also, Thank you to everyone for all the suggestions. Without your help my phone would still be off and I would be taking that depressing trip to the store.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
