    My droid will only display:

    Bootloader 2C.6C
    Battery OK
    OK to program
    Connect USB
    Data Cable

    Tried power off, removed the battery

    if I power on or plug in I get the above

    Is it dead?

    Thanks,
    Barry

    Try pressing the power button so that the screen is blank, take out the battery, put it back , then turning it on regularly. Worked for me ;)

    nope, not rooted, not dropped (never), not wet
    mebbe a power surge thru the charger??

    I noticed a couple days ago it was acting wierd. Camera function kept opening on its own, but a reboot fixed that

    Verizon will be sending a replacement under the 1 year warranty, but warehouse is empty today

    Does anyone know how long the wait is...and likelihood of a rebuild or a new one?

    I am in the same boat. Warranty company is supposed to be contacting me when they find another Droid for me. They tried to give me a Devour as a comparable replacement and I laughed at them. No way. They are supposed to give equal or HIGHER value replacements. The guy said it shouldn't be more than two days so I'm hoping for tomorrow.

    I had the same issue with mine and was able to get it to boot from the hard reset screen. The hard reset mode will give you several different options. I choose the first least involved which was a simple reboot and everything returned back to normal. It also gives the option to wipe the device which may work if nothing else does.
    link to instructions on how to do a hard reset.

    I started it up yesterday and surprise........ it booted fine........ but it's flakey now. It starts typing on it's own and camera and volume buttons are activating sporadically.

    The refurb also came yesterday, so at least it will be a bit easier to duplicate everything and I'll be able to wipe it before its return

    Thanks all

    I read a thread where someone cleaned his phone with something and it left his phone acting wierd and typing on its own and such ... maybe a good cleaning will help ... just a thought :)
