    I am hving this annoying issue with my DHD.
    My CAR PANEL app (HTC BUILT IN) keeps popping up after every 5 mins.
    I close it and it comes back on again.
    I have tried restarting my phone and it did not work. I have tried reformating my phone and it did not work then also.
    Can someone please help me!
    I have switched off my LOCATIONS tab.

    not that I can remember of. It must have been a game. but the strange thing is, it keeps popping up randomly.
    I will be calling HTC support and keep you guys posted if any solution comes up.
    Thanks for the help.

    I had that problem, there is a setting in car panel that auto opens the program you have to unclick it. Not sure why it starts either but it's happened a few times for me. My screen also turns on by itself randomly... which I can't fix

    guys, this is a problem with the charging port. apparently its either two of the metal parts crossing, or just dust in there. i had the same problem for a while, forcefully moved the charging lead around while attatched to phone, till calls stopped going to speaker phone and display stopped coming on.

    Did you guys manage to fix your DHDs as i've got the exact same problem. The forceful solution doesn't sound like the best option.

    Hello all,

    Sadly, I've also just had this problem start up. Car panel keeps launching repeatedly, display turns on randomly and it keeps going into speaker phone - ALL the symptoms. Wonder what could be causing it. This happens regardless whether it's charging or not. Hope there is a fix for this or some sort of update to fix it.

    Update: (FIXED?) Turning off 'Automatically launch car panel..' under Menu>Settings>Dock seems to have helped stop the car panel from launching thus far (I also did a standard restart on the phone after setting this, just to be on the safe side - everything else is exactly as is (did not switch off locations or anything else) - Will post back here if the problem resurfaces.

    Anybody fixed this yet? Mines just started doing this a couple of days ago. I've turned off the car panel and cleaned out the usb port but the speaker still comes on when I use the phone and its driving me mad.!

    Have you tried the solution just above your post?

    I haven't had this issue, so don't know if that is a fix...

    EDIT - given that AndroidFreud hasn't posted back to say that this is still an issue/has resurfced, then I guess it did sort it!

    Yes I have turned off the car panel app and that does not come up anymore but every time I use the phone for a incoming or outgoing call the speaker comes on. And every now and again the screen comes on at random. There are a few posts on other forums about this problem but mo solutions. This phone is driving me round the bend.

    Sorry... my bad... mis-read your post! Thought you were asking how to stop it coming on - hadn't realised that it was the speaker issue!! :)

    If this is related to the charger port, has anyone tried taking a can of compressed air and blowing it into the charger port.

    I got a cocktail stick and cleaned out the usb with some nail varnish remover, there was loads of fluff in there! Then i got a pin and carefully rubbed it round in there, did a standard reset but still no good. It seems to have started after I plugged it into my car charger and when i looked at the charger end it has a load of gunk in it so I think it may be to do with the usb. At a loss.

    Just plugged my phone in as it was getting flat to my house charger and left it for 1 hour tried it and the speaker problem has gone away? I'm convinced its the USB plug, will report back if it comes back.

    This is happening al the time now, has anyone contacted HTC about this problem, I'm thinking of taking the phone back to car phone warehouse where I got it. Its the USB port for sure cos if you move the charger plug when you make a call the speaker comes on and off.

    to reiterate: car panel pops up all the time and EVERY time I make or receive a call it defaults to speakerphone.

    someone must know how to fix this.... any HTC staff around lol?

    I did the same thing but unfortunately calls starting on speakerphone and random screen light ups still happening.. cleaning the USB port, pulling the battery and such didn't help.

    For those of you suffering issues here how many are using the car charger? The car charger is designed to do exactly as you describe...opening up the car panel and/or putting all calls to speaker phone. The mini usb end of the charger that goes to your phone is designed differently to your standard mains charger that came with the phone. It bridges certain contacts in the handsets female micro usb port. Is the problem that this continues to happen long after you unplug your handsets from the car chargers?

    I've had this issue for some time now and I think I just solved it. Given the nature of the problem I guess it'll come back at some point but as long as the charger port doesn't break I'll just repeat the solution next time.
    First off the problem is defenitely a physical error in the charger port, I'm positive it has nothing to do with the phones software. What happens is some kind of short circuting inside the port (or possibly behind it inside the phone) that closes the same bridge that the car charger is supposed to close thus activating car panel and speaker phone etc.

    The first step is to get a "live" indication on wheter the bridge in the port is closed or not. There are many ways to do this but I found it easiest to just activate auto start of the car panel (Menu>Settings>Dock). When the car icon appears in the status bar the bridge is closed and vice versa.
    Then insert the phone end of the charger cord (obviously do not use a car charger chord) into the phone and gently twist it in different directions and track the car icon in the status bar to see at which point it dissapears. I found the correct way to "bend" the phone port to be downwards (with the phones screen facing upwards).
    Hope this works!
