Hello! I am new to the forums and stumbled upon here while doing some Googling for Droid information. After reviewing some guides, I knew that help could be found here.
Here's my problem: I got a used DROID 1 off of eBay that stated there were no issues. Upon receiving it in its bubble wrapped coffin, I turn it on using the power button on top and am glad to see it functional. I soon set up my wi-fi settings (I had no intentions to use it as an actual phone yet) and quickly visit the Market and grab Skype. In midst of downloading, I get a message about an update being available and requiring a reboot. I agree, satisfied that the wi-fi was defiantly working since the Skype had downloaded flawlessly and obviously it was able to grab updates for itself.
I watch it do its updates and after awhile, I am greeted with the good old home screen. I hit the power button to let me pop in the micro SD card and now notice it ignoring me. I try hitting the camera button and see nothing happen. Volume was also unresponsive. I shrug and just pull the battery, not really seeing an issue since it is just a phone and I haven't been doing anything other than having it in the home menu. Upon popping the battery back in, the power button still refused to do any action.
One visit to the Verizon store for a charger, I pop it in and am glad to see it boot up. The only way to get it to wake up now is to clip out the keyboard, a function I am used to with my Samsung phone (non-Android). What leaves me confused is how a system update has now caused the buttons to stop working.
So, my question is if anyone else has had this issue and/or has any idea how to resolve the issue? I can live with it, but if it can be fixed, I'd rather go that route. I am perfectly fine with rooting it (it isn't atm as I cannot see the su option in the apps menu) or any other things as long as I can back it up and restore in the event of failure.
Thank you for your time.
