Do a manual re-boot (Power and down on the volume rocker - hold them for like 15 seconds I think and it will hard re-boot)
Essentially the same as pulling the battery.

Good luck.

Yep, do a Simulated battery pull. Hold the Volume Down key and the Power Key for about 20 seconds and let it reboot. If the screen goes to a black screen try and turn it on like you normally would.

This can solve freezing and frozen black screens issues on the Motorola HD and many other smartphones that you canít physically pull the battery out of.

If it starts becoming a frequent issue, then you might want to try a reset on the device. You might have something on the phone thatís causing issues.

For just the rare issue though a simulated battery pull should do the trick.
