    My desire C seems to have offed itself.

    Earlier this morning I was trying to browse the internet however I was getting the 'webpage not available' screen even though the 3G connection was enabled.
    I then held power button and chose the 'reset' option.
    The phone shut down but did not come back to life - black screen.
    I tried:
    Holding down power button.
    Taking battery out and putting back in.
    Holding down power+volume up for several seconds, power + volume down.
    Plugging in the usb cable.

    No reaction from the phone - simply black screen, no sounds, no vibration.

    Anyone heard of an issue like this?
    Any hints for resurrecting the phone?
    Thank you,

    well no - as I mentioned in the original post I tried connecting the power cable and nothing happens (normally a battery icon is displayed). Also when the fault occurred battery was ~50%

    try charging the battery with 5v charger tap with 2 wires tape it on battery contacts for maybe 5-10mins, find a usb cable that you dont use. Cause if it don't power means battery is drained, then try powering it again. then charge as normal with the htc usb charger. You need a multitester to find voltage of wire GRND and POS including battery.

    Others, inner power button might be borked.
