HTC desire won't start up and only vibrates

    Switched my phone off and when I went to start it up all it did was vibrate 4 times then would do nothing else, battery is fully charged only time it does anything again is if I drop the battery out, when I hit power again it just vibrates again it seems it is normally 4 times but it may have been a couple more on some occassions.

    When I connect to computer or charger there is no amber light to say it charging and the screen does not come on or anything. I have switched my phone off before but it has never done this so I am really confused - any ideas?

    By the way I have had the phone for over 2 months.

    If the amber light doesn't come on it's possible it didn't actually charge when you last tried, so the phone won't boot up due to a low battery. It could be a problem with the charger or the phone if that's the case.

    thats a brick, if there is no charge light when powered off then its dead.
