    Unhappy Phone not starting anymore - black screen

    Hi!

    I think my N1 got bricked. While having a call this morning (with full battery) it suddenly turns off and i was unable to turn it on again. I tried the following:

    - Removing and reinserting the battery and push power-button -> nothing (even no boot-screen)
    - Removing battery, SIM-card and flash-card and after reinserting the battery pushing power -> again nothing
    - inserting the ac-adaptor -> even no green or orange light for charging
    - removing the battery and inserting ac-adaptor -> light flashing orange and green
    - inserting battery while light's flashing -> light went green
    - pushing power-button with green light on -> light turns off and nothing else happens (waited 15 min or so)

    Before doing any of the following steps I always remove battery and ac-adaptor, waited 10 sec., inserted ac-adaptor (flashing light) and afterwards the battery (green light).
    - Just push Power -> green light turns off and nothing happens
    - Volume - and Power -> green light turns off and nothing happens
    - Trackball and Power -> green light turns off and nothing happens
    - Tried all those things with ac-adaptor and usb-cable

    So: Unable to boot, unable to do hard-reset, unable to enter fastboot. But device recognizes the battery-state correctly and is charging.

    Does anyone have another suggestion? I don't like to send it to htc.

    Here are some additional infos:
    Nexus One AMOLED from Vodafone (Europe Version) with unlocked bootloader but NOT rooted. Android 2.2.1 from OTA (Google-Version not Vodafone-Version).

    Thanks!

    When powering on, Have you tried holding down the trackball before you hit the power button and keeping the trackball held until it kicks into recovery? that might let you into the Recovery to do a Factory Data Reset.

    Oddly, my wife had the same thing happen on her phone this morning, but I assumed it was battery related. So I swapped her battery with mine and her phone worked. Then I swapped the battery back and booted into recovery, which accomplished nothing. So I rebooted the phone and that time it worked and it's working now. No clue what the deal is.

    Yes I tried that. But after holding the trackball for longer than 20 seconds I gave up. Screen still black.

    Thank you.

    This is interesting. Unfortunately I have no second battery to try this. Maybe I should drive to the electronic market and get one :-)

    Meanwhile: Any other suggestions?

    Yeah, I don't know what is going on or why, but it's something that they both did it. And my wife's phone is stock, while I'm definitely not, so maybe it was 2.2.1.

    Thanks for that thread, but they are able to get into recovery or fastboot. I don't even see the first boot screen (X with open key underneath it).

    I went to a phone-shop and asked the person to insert a working battery in my N1 but it didn't start. We also inserted my battery in his N1 and that one started. But mine didn't want to start neither with another working battery nor with my battery working in another phone. It's just black. No boot screen not even a single sign of life like lamps on or so. It's completely dark after pushing the power button. Even when connected to ac-adaptor the charge-indicator wents off after pushing power and doesn't come back.
    I didn't do any ROM-flashing before this. Just the OTA-update to 2.2.1 on monday.
    Very strange. Seems I have no other possibility than waiting for a replacement...
