Default [Resolved] Phone has just died suddenly (reset procedure inside)

Can't understand it, was fine earlier on and took it upstairs and realised nothing was happening when I pushed the power button.. plugged the charger in and nothing, not even the red light. Anybody else had this happen?

RIP One, we had some good times

did you try a hard reset - Hold down on power and volume down for about 15 - 30 seconds. Did you run the battery to Zero ? if so put on charge for about 5 hrs and then do the hard reset

My old Rezound did this to me a few times.
Best way I saw it explained is that it went into some kind of mode where it would be in fastboot with the screen off.
So it won't charge and it won't boot...

My Rezound had an associated flash of the charge indicator when it was doing this - not the same flash that it does when it's completely dead.

I haven't seen any of my other HTC phones get into this mode.. unless the One does it too?

Don't know what it was, phone wasn't out of juice.. little light didn't respond when the charger was in or flash when I held in the power button... Honestly thought it was goosed.

Do you usually have the FASTBOOT option enabled in SETTINGS > POWER > FASTBOOT?

Just curious, as there have been some who recommend against using the FASTBOOT option, stating that the negative effects outweigh any benefit.

THX!

As far as I know it wasn't selected Kolio as it doesn't seem to be selected by default and I never changed anything, I don't even use the power saver as haven't needed to with this phone. I'm guessing the phone just crashed and because I couldn't do a battery pull it took doing the reset to put it right.

What's the cons of having the fastboot option checked. Thought the default setting when I got my phone was that the box was checked.

I found a couple of sources that may help explain the FASTBOOT PROS & CONS:

What is Fastboot??

Uncheck Fast boot - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

Thanks for posting. I did a Google search before asking my question and I actually visited those forums you posted. Someone said even with the box checked, as long as you are doing a restart of your phone fastboot isn't a factor. Fastboot only runs after you do a power off of your phone from my understanding and not during a restart.
