    Hi There

    My HTC Desire has been running happily for over 3 years

    Yesterday I took it out my pocket and saw that instead of the usual 'desktop' I was presented with the hboot screen. Unfortunately, neither the volume up/down buttons nor the power button have any effect on the display so I am unable to select anything. I've removed the battery and re-inserted it several time but to no avail.
    My interpretation of the situation is that the volume down button is stuck closed so that the 'phone goes straight into hboot. I would welcome any other suggestions. For your interest here's the output from 'fastboot getvar all' option of mini-adb:

    unfortunately my first guess matches yours: volume button stuck will produce both symptoms (boot to hboot and no response from buttons).
