    It sounds like the wrong way round - you need to press and hold the vol down key, and just press power (apols if that's already what you're trying)

    How long has it been doing this? Did you make any changes before this happened? Did it ever work? before pulling the battery, does the volume button work in other situations?

    info info info please, as much as you think is relevant and then some. tell us everything.

    hi this as only been happening since i installed RCmix 2.0 rom .i have been trying different roms over the last few weeks .the volume up/down button works when playing music and using phone for calls.
    when the phone was on i pressed the power button and a screen with various options came up ,one of which was recovery i chose this option and it went to the screen with reboot,choose zip from sd card etc,i am thinking there is nothing wrong with phone its the way the rom works? sorry if i have not expained to well.
    many thanks

    The screen you went to is recovery, if i am following correctly. Was it black with green writing? If so that is CWM recovery.

    I'd try installing quick boot or something similar from the market that let's you boot straight into recovery, see if that works????

    Not tried RCMix but it might have extended Power menu with option to boot straight to recovery?

    Cool

    You might need to look out for a fastboot option in phone Settings menu (somewhere) on some Sense ROMs. If this is ticked phone doesn't Power Off as normal - think it enters a kind of hibernate state, always unticked it straight away when i've spotted it in Sense ROMs - so this might be what's possibly interfering with trying to get into Hboot using vol down/power button.

    You think phone's powered off but it isn't so all you're actually doing is waking it up. Worth having a look, unticking this, power off, then re-try the vol down/power to get into Hboot
