My device won’t power on. What can I do?
If your device will not power on, your battery may be drained.
- If the battery is dead, the device will need to charge for a few minutes and then should power on once this happens. Attempt to power the device on by pressing the Power button for 3 seconds.
- Make sure you are using the AC charger that was supplied with your device.
- Press and hold the Power button for 10 seconds to force a power cycle. If it works, the 3 icons at the bottom of the screen will blink a few times.
- If the device still will not power on, contact your wireless carrier for further assistance.
My device has gotten warm and appears to have stopped charging. What is happening?
When using the device for prolonged periods of time, such as when you're talking on the phone, charging the battery or browsing the web, the device may become warm. In most cases, this condition is normal and therefore should not be interpreted as a problem with the device.
The device has a protection feature that if the device becomes too warm (due to use of GPS or Bluetooth while charging, using the device as a wireless modem, etc.), the auto protection feature will be triggered and the charging process will be stopped. Once the device cools down, it will then begin charging again.
