What can I do if my phone will not power on?

If the phone is not powering on, first make sure that the phone doesn't have a completely drained battery:
Plug the phone into the charger for at least 5-10 minutes to allow the battery to charge.

Make sure you're using an original HTC-branded charger and cable, and check the wall socket to make sure the charger is receiving power. It's best to charge using a wall socket instead of a USB connection when troubleshooting power issues.

After you have confirmed the phone is charged, try to power it on by pressing and holding the POWER button for 10-15 seconds.

If the phone still doesn't power on, holding down certain hardware buttons can force the phone to reboot. See How do I reboot the phone using hardware buttons? for details.
