    Shut off and wouldn't go back on...

    My droid just shut off and i couldn't get it back on even with a battery pull. I had to plug it into the charger to get it back on and it wasn't even a low charge.
    I have a lot of good how to articles about music managing and battery life etc. PM me if interested.

    I know this might sound silly. But when you pulled the battery and put it back in did you hold the power button down until it started back up? I know just by pushing the power button the phone will not turn on. I have to hold it a few seconds till I see the screen light come on.

    i used an app that caused my phone to crash and i had the same issue. but keeping the battery out for 20 seconds to fully discharged did the trick.

    Droid will not turn on

    It seems there is a much more serious issue going on with Motorola Droid models. I don't believe it's just a few bad models, I just believe the phone has a problem in general somewhere, perhaps hardware or software related or both. Hopefully and OS update will address the issues... See this post...

    With all due respect it is not a widespread problem. If it were there would be A LOT of threads dealing with this issue.

    With that said, there is always going to be devices that exhibit this type of behavior. No way around that.

    Could be issues with apps, could be the OS, could be hardware it's just hard to pinpoint one thing when dealing with this kind of technology.

    Couple questions though.....

    What apps do you have on your phone?

    Are you using a task killer program? i.e. Advanced Task Killer?

    Well it certainly could be software related as stated, but I have seen a lot of similar complaints on other forums. Is there a known issue w/ the screen display and Advanced Task Manager? If so, that would be a relief...

    I have had this issue, too, where my Droid will just seem to "die" and it won't come back on (even when there's plenty of battery power left.) It has happened three times. The last time it happened, I was on my way to the Verizon store to get help when it magically powered on. I swear this thing is alive!
    I don't know if this is related, but I've noticed that sometimes my chargers seem to work with my Droid, and sometimes they don't. It's definitely not the outlets I'm using. Sometimes it seems the charge indicator light will turn on and sometimes it won't. For example, when it won't work in my wall outlet, I will use the car charger and it will go on immediately. And vice versa when it won't turn on in my car, it lights up right away in my house outlet. Anyone else had this problem?

    are you using the oem charger for the wall? There are known issues with not using the wall charger that came with the Droid.

    ATK made my phone do exactly what yours did. Have not had the problem since I uninstalled.

    Google Sky MAY be another culprit....

    I don't want to spread misinformation but these 2 apps seem to show up in a lot of threads with people having issues with reboots or lock-ups.

    I can say ATK jacked up my phone though.
