    Trouble Shooting my Nexus One Issue

    I just picked up a Nexus One in Mint shape. Not a scratch on it anywhere def. has not been dropped in or exposed to water at all I know what to look for. It does respond but I get nothing but lights. Please have a look at my plug in results as listed and give me some input.
    1. When I plugged it in last night I got a orange light in the earpiece screen.
    2. Today when plugged into the wall or my computer I get a solid green light on the status led.
    3. If I pull the battery and plug it in I get a quick orange followed by a quick green light.
    The battery also does not get warm nor does it show signs of swelling. I'm trying to narrow it down to a bad logic board or Amoled/super lcd? Normally with a bad lcd in other phones you'll get a back light of sorts where in bright light you can still see the images. Possibly this isn't a characteristic of these. Also if I plug in this device or hold down the power button would it not automatically turn on. If so wouldn't I hear the boot screen or process and wouldn't it vibrate? I've never owned one so I'm not sure.

    Are you sure it's not something as simple as a failed power button (a weakness of the phone)?

    You can test by plugging a charger into the phone, then pull the battery, then reinsert the battery. The phone should turn on, but it may take a few attempts...

    Holy Santa Clause Danger Rat I just got your reply and I walked over to the phone. One the 4th battery pull. I get that big beautiful Nexus boot screen. You just got me a mint Nexus One for 85 dollars. Now onto a power button solution. I work on smart phones all day but I'm in rural area and have literally never had a Nexus on my bench. I assumed the charger being plugged in would boot the phone like it does on Iphones and Bb's.

    I owe you a lunch or something. Is there a quick lock button bypass I can use so I don't have to reboot everytime the screen locks?

    There's a few root apps, and also one called "No Lock" or something like that.
    There's plenty of discussions on it, so a quick search should get you there...
